Jack Eversea and Evan Weston, two of Hollywood’s hottest young actors had their hearts stolen by regular down to earth girls, and we lived and laughed and loved their stories in the Eversea Series and in the Desire Resort Series. But what happened when the books were over?
How did each couple choose to spend their first Christmas? Was it sexy, emotional, stressful or heartwarming?
Perhaps it was everything and more…
My Star, My Love (An Eversea Series Novella) by Natasha Boyd
Movie star, Jack Eversea, has decided to brave his history with England and take the love of his life, Keri Ann Butler, home to meet his mother for Christmas. He’s been back in California and Keri Ann’s been busy with art school, and they are desperate to spend three weeks together over the Holidays.
But Jolly Old England does weird things to Jack. And despite his super sweet “twelve days of Christmas” gift giving, Keri Ann can’t quite work out of he’s about to propose or regrets bringing her home. Is he still questioning whether she can handle a few paparazzi, or is he doubting Keri Ann’s commitment to their future?
The magnetic couple is back in a fun, sometimes poignant, and super sexy story about acceptance, love and how to make love quietly in a creaky old house with one’s mother down the hall.

NOTE: You should read the first two books of the Eversea Series prior to reading this book or review.
I am a huge fan of the Eversea Series and was so excited Natasha wrote a Christmas novella! I was immediately sucked back into the crazy world of Jack and Keri Ann; the small town girl and the famous movie star. While there were sweet and loving moments, there was also some angst. I laughed, fretted, and of course, swooned. This is Jack Eversea after all! My only complaint is I wanted more; I could have easily read an entire book with these two. Fans of the series will love this novella! It was a perfect peek into Jack and Keri Ann’s love, and I really hope we get more soon. ~ Rebecca
You are my star, I’d follow you anywhere.
My Star, My Love by Natasha Boyd
When Jack kissed, it was a melody rushing through me. The build of a chorus that thrummed in my blood and beat in my chest, my body at one with the resonance as it built, layer upon layer, like a song one could feel more than hear.
I didn’t just taste the sweet almond and coffee taste on his tongue that rode like white caps on the flavor that was uniquely Jack. I was in the cathedral of Jack. His presence surrounded me with perfect architecture to take the burning want he created with every slide of his mouth and every tightening of his hands holding me to him, soaring and whipping around me until I was trembling with the force of it. And flying along side it. Along side him.
Many Times, Many Ways by Kate Roth
I watched her stare out at Lake Ontario. The water was still, the pristine surface looking like a black pool under the moon as snow was still falling with no end in sight. I slipped my arms around her from behind and looked out at the water with her.
“I’m kind of obsessed with the kitchen. This place is gorgeous. And there’s a pool, which means you’ll probably have to bring me back in the summer,” she said quietly, letting me hear the smile in her voice. A breath fell out of me and I pressed my forehead into her shoulder as I grinned.
“It’s really beautiful in the fall,” I said with a sigh.
She hummed and then her body stiffened. “How do you know?”
“I’ve been here before.”
Her shoulders fell under my touch and I couldn’t stand keeping it from her for one more second. “Oh,” she said solemnly.
I let go of her and moved to the nightstand where I’d left the box. When I turned back to her, she was holding herself with her arms across her body.
“You okay?” I asked.
Her head wobbled and she gave me a weary smile. “I just don’t like thinking about you sharing this place with anyone but me. But it’s okay. It’s a great house, so I see why you wanted to bring me here too.”
I breathed another small laugh and moved to her smoothly. The moonlight painting her from the windows made me weak. She was the most gorgeous thing I’d ever seen. My hand rose to brush her cheek and her brow wrinkled at me. “Do you know how much I love you?” I asked.
Danielle’s teeth scraped at her bottom lip and she shrugged.
I rolled my eyes and smirked. “Oh, come on. You’ve got me wrapped around your little finger and you know it, Sassy,” I teased.
When she cracked a smile, I swallowed thickly and held the little red box out to her. She stared at it for a moment, breathless, and then she looked up at me again, her eyes full of uncertainty.
