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?
She doesn’t deserve him!!
Why do authors do this?
They make these amazing, strong, attractive guys. And then pair them with these whiny, selfish female characters? Why? What happened to female solidarity? These authors are female and yet they are unable to write a good female character, one that doesn’t make our gender look crazy. I’ve read hundreds and hundreds and hundreds of books but I could probably count on one hand the number of books that features a good female protagonist. It’s important to have a desirable male character but I think it’s even more important to have a relatable and likable female character. Now with that said I can talk about the book.
I surprisingly loved the last book; I loved Keri Anne, I loved jack, I loved their whole drama. Even though we’ve read this story before; where a relatively nothing-special girl meets a famous actor and they fall in love. But this one was different it was well written with good drama and likeable characters. That is until book 2.
This book started off ok. Jack, after being gone for 7 months comes back to town begging for forgiveness and a second chance. I liked that Keri Anne made him work for it, that she didn’t pull an Anastasia Steele and forgive everything he put her through after 2 sec of reuniting. She seemed so strong in the beginning not caving to the man that broke her heart but willing to listen- after some time. I loved their story their drama and after a few chapters their reunion. Until it was revealed that Keri Anne is a crazy self-sabotaging disgrace for a human being.
The beginning was so good- which is the reason for the 4 stars. But the ending ruined it for me. I knew that the conflict was coming but I was hopeful that it would be something different. Something creative. Something that I didn’t just read 3 days ago in The Remember When series or a year ago with Love Unscripted. I wanted something slightly unique. But alas I was disappointed when the conflict turned out to be Keri Anna’s fear of being photographed and being attached publicly to jack. And other unbelievable nonsense. If a beautiful young British actor came up to me and professed his love I would be all over that. And yet Keri Anna is dragging her heals, making stupid decisions and choosing her lack if career over true love.
Why God? Why do I continue to waste my money by reading the same book over and over again. Ugh. Oh well it’s too late now.
At least this is the last one in the series.
