My Review of Deep Blue Eternity by Natasha Boyd
Deep Blue Eternity by Natasha Boyd is a fast, emotional thrill ride full of will-they-won’t-they tension that will make your heart ache.
This NA Romance is different in tone and feel than a lot of NA on the market today. Although it’s told first person POV it’s primarily told through thoughts and memories (meaning there ain't a lot of yapping going on). It’s largely internal dialogue and it’s good. If you aren’t a huge fan of internal dialogue in a novel (hey, where’s the action at, amirite?) don’t fret. This book is still quick and fast. In fact, I hate to even mention that it is heavily told through internal dialogue because I worry that will turn some folks away. When it’s done badly it’s horrid. But believe me when I tell you that the only reason I’m pointing it out is to marvel at how well this was done.
I really connected with this character right off the bat. Maybe it’s because this story is set in the low country or maybe it’s because the MC, Olivia, is one tough cookie – either way, I was hooked. The plot really takes off when she meets Tommy. This is the H to her h (although, seriously, when can we acknowledge that Hero should be a genderless word? Women can be heroes too, dag nab it). Tommy is frustrating, mysterious, and kind. Early on there is a moment where Olivia is yearning for Tommy to whisk her out of a terrible situation and he does. He shows up. And from that moment forward I was shipping this couple so hard. I needed to know when their chemistry would ignite.
I couldn't put Deep Blue Eternity down. This book blew my socks off. It’s one of those books where, as a writer, I’m struck by how well it is written and, as a reader, I’m enjoying the heck out of it.
I give Deep Blue Eternity 4 out of 5 screaming kitties. It's that good.
Deep Blue Eternity has an engaging mystery element in addition to the fabulous chemistry. I loved this book and plan to grab more by Natasha Boyd.
