Livvy is on the run. And she’s escaped to the one place nobody will ever find her.

But the isolated cottage isn’t empty. Her refuge is home to a troubled stranger, Tom, there for reasons of his own.

In the intimacy of the abandoned cottage, and the remote wilderness of the island, the electrifying connection between them is impossible to ignore. Both running from their histories and shielding dark secrets, their pasts catch up with them and collide in an unimaginable way.

Deep emotions and powerful chemistry face a painful battle with the tangle of lies, and scars of the past.
When the truth emerges, hearts will be shattered.

EXCERPT



EXCERPT
DEEP BLUE ETERNITY by NATASHA BOYD

“Please,” I added, realizing I needed him on my side, and unable to avoid the hint of desperation in my tone. I mentally cringed. “Please don’t tell anyone I’m here.”
He assessed me, leaning back, one arm slung along the empty chair back next to him and his eyes narrowed. There was a gemstone that exact color. What was it called?
I frantically thought of a way to explain what I was doing here. And I wished I could see something else in his expression through the facial hair.
“Fine,” he said finally, with a stiff nod.
“Fine?”
“Yes, fine.”
“What are you hiding from?” I asked suddenly, not sure where the question came from.
I almost missed the flicker of shock in his gaze, before he shrugged nonchalantly. “And we won’t ask each other questions.”
“Okay,” I agreed, with abundant relief, despite the weirdness of our situation.
Well, well, well. Wasn’t that an interesting puzzle? Why would a guy who was obviously well-spoken and educated, from what I could tell, take on the lonely job of looking after an isolated cottage in the middle of nowhere?
The silence was extremely uncomfortable as we both regrouped.
Eventually he sighed. “You look better without all the black shit all over your face.”
Obviously, he was referring to the black eyeliner and lipstick I’d taken to wearing. It matched my nails, my usual clothes and my mood. And it hid me. People’s eyes glided away from me when I started dressing like that, so I kept it up. It made things easier for me out in the world. All I had to do was also block out the whispers in the hallways of my preppy school. It had the added benefit that my parents hated it.
“Well, you’d probably look better without that hairy shit all over your face.” I bit my lip as soon as the words were uttered.
Seriously, sometimes I had no filter.
There was movement in his beard.
Was he actually going to smile? His caramel eyes crinkled up and suddenly his beard split open in a wide smile filled with perfect white teeth, and a snort of laughter came out. He was almost beautiful, not that I was into older guys. I didn’t know where to look, but his wheeze of laughter was infectious and I found myself fighting my own smile.
Then he took a deep breath. “I … I was in love with your sister. That’s how you know me,” he said.
The words were out there so suddenly, and he looked so shocked that he’d uttered them, that neither of us spoke for interminable minutes.
No questions.
Abruptly, he got up, scraping the chair across the old wooden floor, and walked to the front door. He paused a moment, his shoulders rigid, then yanked the door and smacked the screen open. In a moment, he was gone, both doors slamming shut behind him, leaving a vast emptiness in his wake.





Almost 18-year-old Olivia ran away from home.
She's on her way to the cottage her grandma left her - a cottage on Daufuskie island in Georgia.
But someone is already living there...Tom.
He used to be in love with Olivia's sister Abby - but Abby has been dead for six years now.
Lots of  horrible things happened back then and a lot must've happened after Abby was gone, because Olivia felt the need to get away from home.
And now in that one safe place from her childhood, she and Tom need each other to heal....
But there are still way too many secrets between them.....

I REALLY ENJOYED THE BOOK!!!


I was sooo happy when I got an ARC from Natasha...
I was really looking forward to reading it...and I was not disappointed...

From reading the blurb, I kinda had the impression that Olivia would be a bit older...but even though she's only 18 - she seems way older with what she has been through in her life ... but still with some things you notice that she's really young. ☺

We get to hear the story from both Olivia's and Tom's POV and that's always something I really love!

It was a really cute and moving and sexy and suspensy Romance.
You can't help but want to give them all a big hug .... especially Tom ☺



Tom was really great - with all his guilt and grief....such an amazing guy - the way he wants to help/save Olivia....

PERFECT BOOK - makes you cry & laugh & think & dream ... plus it's set in a really romantic location! I LOVED IT!!!!
