Book Review: Inconvenient Wife
Inconvenient Wife - Natasha Boyd

Where to begin? This was another fun, interesting romance by one of my favorite authors. While not quite living up to the laugh out loud moments of the first book in this series (Accidental Tryst) I really enjoyed the tension building of this friends to lovers story. Gwen, or Gracie, and Beau have a definitive chemistry that most couples strive to find. Friendships are great, but when they can be more it can be even better.

 

I know this particular trope gets kind of a bad rap in the romance reading community, but I assure you that Boyd does a fabulous job keeping the story moving without falling into a repetitive pace that leaves the reader with that "will they just get it on already" feeling. I found myself reading easily and excitedly to find out what would happen next. There's a lot to unravel and I really enjoyed the other characters contributions to the story.

 

Beau is an idiot. I mean that in the nicest way possible. He does all the wrong things and seems to not understand women at all. For having a best friend that is female, he hasn't learned anything useful to his endeavor. It was hard to like him at all at first, but there are a few redeeming moments that saved his character for me. Apologies are important people, that's all I'm saying.

 

Gwen is fierce and gentle. She seems like someone I'd like to get a beer with and swap awful dating stories. I immediately related to her and it was easy to be in her corner from the beginning. Not without faults, her stubbornness made for an interesting middle of the story. The ending is probably one of my favorite parts, all thanks to her.

 

If you're looking for a fun romance with a bit of angst and a happy ending, you should definitely grab this book.

THE INDIGO GIRL by Natasha Boyd
The Indigo Girl - Natasha Boyd The Indigo Girl - Natasha Boyd
THE INDIGO GIRL by Natasha Boyd
 
In South Carolina in 1736, 16 year old girls were expected to be sweet, compliant and marry well. Eliza Lucas was anything but the normal Low Country girl. She was intelligent, educated and ambitious. Eliza was left to run to her father’s three plantations while he pursued his military career and jeopardized the family’s wealth and position.
 
When her family faced financial ruin it was left to Eliza to coerce an arrogant, incredulous male “consultant” and to befriend the family’s slaves to help her discover how to produce indigo dye all while discouraging suitors for her hand (and property). Her solution – teach the slaves to read (illegal) if they helped her.
 
Well researched and well written, the 5 years Eliza Lucas Pinckney ran her father’s plantations did not save her family’s lands but did secure South Carolina’s place in world trade and provided the fledgling United States with two astute politicians. Eliza’s actual letters to her friends, father and lawyer are interspersed throughout.
 
5 of 5 stars

A fitting conclusion
Beach Wedding: The Final Eversea Book (The Butler Cove Series 5) - Natasha Boyd

*Sigh* If you haven't read Eversea, you should go do that right now. Go ahead, I'll wait. 

 

Now that you've fallen in love with Jack and Keri Ann, as I did, you'll want to indulge in the rest of their story. Beach Wedding is a wonderful conclusion to their happily ever after and gives you an even deeper look into both characters. 

 

There were some very predictable moments, which was unfortunate for me as a reader, but overall this story takes us on the roller coaster of life with Jack and Keri Ann. Wedding planning can be stressful for the best of us, and even as a movie star there are always hurdles to battle. I really enjoy the way that their wedding comes together and the events surrounding it. 

 

As usual, Natasha Boyd brings us on a beautiful journey with her writing and character development. If you enjoy a lot of mushy love language, then this is definitely the book for you. I am willing to forgive the excessive mushiness because I think it's pretty normal to get sentimental around big life events. 

 

Be prepared with a box of tissues with this read though, it is not all sunshine and rainbows. It may be my excessive hormones these days but my eyes were definitely leaking at some points. I highly recommend this love story for anyone who enjoys an interesting happily ever after. 

 

I received a copy of this book in exchange for a fair and honest review. I was not monetarily compensated for my opinion.

Forever, Jack
Forever, Jack - Natasha Boyd ***** April's 5 Star Review ***** 5 Dreams and Screams

A feisty small-town girl and the Hollywood star who broke her heart

An all-consuming love threatened by fame

One last chance at FOREVER

Keri Ann Butler's life changed on the night she met movie star, Jack Eversea. She thought she knew a Jack that was very different to the man adored by fans the world over. In the wake of his betrayal and abandonment, Keri Ann has had to pick up and move forward with the life she was supposed to live and has put off far too long.

Suddenly Jack is back, and his explanations for why he left seem more and more plausible, and his declarations more seductive. But being Jack's latest tabloid accessory isn't on Keri Ann's career agenda, no matter how much she is attracted to him. And how can she can ever trust him again?

Jack knows he let the only 'real' thing that ever happened to him slip through his fingers. And his hands have been tied to try and stop it. Until Now.

Jack is now fighting to save his relationship with Keri Ann, even as his crazy life threatens to tear them apart. Again. The question is, can he convince her she can have it all? And have him? Forever?

Forever Jack picks up exactly where the first one left off. In Eversea we were introduced to Jack and Keri Ann. Jack is a famous movie star who ran from Hollywood to get away from a lot of problems in his life and wanted peace. Keri Ann has always lived in her small town in the South and had her share of grief when her parents and then Grandma died. Her brother is away at school and Keri Ann is getting by as best she can and one night meets Jack. They fall in love and it is a beautiful pure love. However, circumstances force Jack's hand and he has to leave and Keri Ann is devastated.

Forever Jack starts where Jack comes back, and this time nothing is going to stop him from getting the only girl he has ever loved. Keri Ann can't believe he is back and does not trust Jack to not hurt her all over again. Jack was gone 5 months and while she understands what happened and she doesn’t want to give up on her wants and dreams. Keri Ann is afraid if she lets Jack in she may lose herself and just be the person who follows Jack from one movie set to another with no life of her own.

Once I started reading this book I couldn’t put it down. The characters were awesome. The storyline is even awesome. I Love this series! I liked the first book Eversea better than this sequel. This storyline was true, real and very believable.. They remained true to themselves yet were willing to bend just enough to let the other in. Who doesn’t love when a small town girl falls for a very handsome movie star. I hated to see this book end. I can’t wait to see what happens next with Jazz and Joey

Eversea
Eversea - Natasha Boyd ***** April's 5 Star Review ***** 5 Dreams and Screams

An orphaned, small-town, southern girl, held hostage by responsibility and self-doubt.

A Hollywood A-list mega-star, on the run from his latest scandal and with everything to lose.

A chance encounter that leads to an unlikely arrangement and epic love affair that will change them both forever.

When his co-star and real-life girlfriend is caught cheating on him with her new director, A-list hottie, Jack Eversea, finds himself in sleepy Butler Cove, South Carolina. Jack hopes the sultry southern heat in this tiny coastal Low country town will hide him not only from the tabloids and his cheating girlfriend, but his increasingly vapid life and the people who run it. He doesn’t count on meeting Keri Ann Butler.

Keri Ann has relied on herself so long, dealing with her family’s death and the responsibilities of keeping up her family's historic mansion, that boys and certainly the meager offering of eligible boys in Butler Cove, have never figured into her equation. But fate has other plans. Suddenly face to face with the man who played the movie role of her favorite fictional character, Jack has Keri Ann yearning for everything she has previously avoided ... and Jack must decide whether this funny, sassy girl is worth changing his life for, before his mistakes catch up to him

IT WAS AMAZING!! It is a MUST READ!I couldn’t put it down!! It left me wanting more of Jack. Come on who wouldn’t want more of Jack. The author did an amazing job writing this book. The characters wow! It made me feel as though I was inside the book. You will smile, laugh and even shed a few tears. Eversea is a sweet, hot, steamy and a feel good love story that you will want to read again and again. Oh yea did I mention I loved the cliffhanger?
