BOOK REVIEW

Steal by Rachel Van Dyken

Release Date: July 3rd
Genre: Contemporary Romance

 

Steal, the follow-up standalone rockstar romance to the #1 NYT Bestseller Keep


BLURB

It’s easy to lose yourself in someone you love.

Easier to lose yourself in someone you hate…

I didn’t think it could get any worse than having to babysit a bunch of spoiled musicians on set — keeping them out of trouble is a cakewalk compared to seeing my ex every day.

Seaside, Oregon isn’t big enough for the both of us.

She hates me.

I loathe her.

The plan was simple — stay the hell away and make sure she gets to set on time.

What I didn’t expect was to be faced with our past in front of an audience — and be forced to face it again.

It’s torture.

The way she looks at me.

The way I try to look through her.

Words left unsaid.

The lingering aftermath still as powerful as ever.

I feed the chasm between us, for fear that she’ll make me feel again — and steal the last shred of heart I have left.

We have everything but each other.

It’s not enough.

Not when you’ve lost love.

And replaced it with the only thing left — hate.

MY REVIEW

 

If you love second chance romance – this is the book for you.

If you love emotionally charged novels filled with sexual tension and angst – you’ll love STEAL.

 

Steal, was the third book in the Seaside Pictures Series, and for fans of this series, reading Steal will be like visiting friends and family. Beloved characters are saying hello. The support Will and Angelica received from this group of people was incredibly touching.

Will and Angelica had so much history. There was just no easy way to bring these two people back together. The pain that both felt was palpable. Even though there was this all consuming chemistry between them, their history threatened every chance they might have had.

I have a soft spot for second chance romance. Because, of the never-ending forgiveness that people have for each other. Will and Angelica’s story was painful, emotional, and deeply moving. Their journey was meaningful not only because they had to forgive each other to move on, but also in admitting their mistakes and wrong-doings. After some initial struggling Will and Angelica decided to fight for their love. Even though history was a painful reminder, moving forward was the only solution.

The truth was, Will and Angelica were far from indifferent towards each other. They might have thought denying feelings and holding on to the pain was the easier path – it’s never the right one.

For me, Steal was all about redemption. Will and Angelica had to save each other. Neither were happy without the other, and only together they would achieve happiness. Steal was quite the rollercoaster ride. Emotionally charged, gripping, with a good amount of angst. It had everything that makes a great compelling and captivating novel.
