Review of Deep Blue Eternity by Natasha Boyd @lovefrmlowcntry

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.

"A captivating, heart-wrenching, beautifully written story about those who scar us and those who help us heal. I could not put it down and am still thinking about it!" - Mia Sheridan, New York Times Bestselling author of Archer’s Voice

"Boyd skillfully navigates the scorching physical desire and personal insecurities of her protagonists, crafting a relationship that is tense, torrid and sure to keep the pages turning." ~ RT Book Reviews

“Fans of the Sea of Tranquility or Mia Sheridan will absolutely love this story.” ~ MissIngrid’s reviews.

Overall Rating:  4.5 Rockin’ ★★★★☆

In the novel, Deep Blue Eternity by author Natasha Boyd, the story is one of sorrow, pain and love.  Natasha is a virtuoso at her craft.  The characters that she has created in this book are very real, undeniably relatable in a way that the reader can envision through this beautifully designed tragedy.  

Olivia Baines has lived in the shadow of her older sister and her death since she was thirteen.  Running away was her only way out.  She leaves her parents who can't and won't understand the pain and anguish that she has endured as well.  She travels to the only place she has ever felt safe.  Making her way to her grandmother’s home on a small island off the coast of Savannah, Georgia, Olivia has the opportunity to find herself again and possibly finally heal.  

Thomas Whitfield Cavanaugh is also running from his haunted past.  If he had just been smarter or braver when it really counted, back when he was younger, maybe his life would be different.  Maybe he could've made more of a difference and saved her... When he meets a young girl, who is hurting and haunted just as much as he is, Tommy feels that he has a chance to redeem himself and make things finally right.

When you find love in the most unlikely circumstances, fate can and will steps in and give life another chance to heal.  From the very beginning, I was drawn into the chronicle of events that brought the characters to the undeniable moment of realization, that even in our darkest hour, love finds a way to banish all and bring us back into the light.  I am fascinated by the beautifully created stories that Natasha Boyd produces.  I look forward to reading her next submission for her readers’ enjoyment.
