Steal, the follow-up

standalone rockstar romance to the #1NYT Bestseller

Keep…

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.

Excerpt

Angelica

I finally understood what prison would be like.

By way of my agent.

After his pep talk where I imagined kissing him about a

million times before he gave me a pat on my shoulder and helped me to my feet,

he walked me back to set and watched each scene.

When I was done and Lincoln asked if I wanted to go out with

the rest of the cast for drinks, Will stepped in. “She can’t.”

Did I call him a babysitter earlier?

The man was like a parent.

A prison guard.

A hot one.

One that oozed sexuality with a swagger that refused to go

away every time he walked in any direction. Hell, the guy was going to be

eighty years old and still turning heads when he walked into restaurants.

“I should have gone,” I said once Lincoln walked off with

Dani and Jay. “It’s good for the cast to bond.”

“He’s your brother. You’ve had your time.” Will shrugged.

I clenched my teeth and followed him to the parking lot, but

instead of going to his shiny car, he walked right past it.

Shit, he was going to make me walk back to the beach house

again, wasn’t he?

“Come on,” he called over his shoulder. “Keep up.”

“You’re twice my size!” I yelled in a struggle to keep up

with him in the flip-flops I’d packed into my bag that morning. “Hey, wait up!”

If anything the bastard picked up his pace until he reached

the sidewalk then stopped.

My flip-flop got stuck on the sidewalk sending me into his

arms. I braced myself on both of his biceps. My fingers tingled with the need

to squeeze and swoon into his embrace.

Instead, I shoved away and crossed my arms. “So? What now?”

He licked his lips, drawing my attention to his mouth. I

licked mine in response. Like an idiot.

“You did good today, Ang.” He held out his hand.

I narrowed my eyes. “Is this a trick?”

“No.” He smirked. “This is a hand. You take it in yours,

see?” He demonstrated by lacing our fingers together. A shiver erupted down my

right arm, goose bumps popped up.

People didn’t touch me.

But Will did.

I forgot what warmth had felt like.

Until he held my hand.

“Dinner.” He squeezed my hand and let it fall against my

side before he nodded to the busy main street of Seaside where families ran

back and forth between ice cream and taffy shops like sugar addicts. “It’s the

least I can do.”

“For?”

He grinned. “For actually not sucking today.”

I smacked him in the shoulder. It was a kneejerk reaction.

He laughed harder and rubbed the spot.

“I see you still know how to hit pretty hard.”

“And you’re still a sarcastic ass,” I said sweetly.

“Always will be.” He winked.

My diaphragm refused to work.

I nearly stopped breathing.

Why did he have to remind me how easy it had been between

us? Because in a life full of harsh realities — he’d always made me realize one

thing about love.

In the beginning, it should be easy.

Involuntary.

Like sucking the sweet salty air through my teeth and

exhaling in the same breath.

Love was as simple as the air surrounding us.

And between us, it had been more than natural; it had been

effortless. Love shouldn’t start out hard, the struggles happen once you’re

together long enough to realize that the other person isn’t perfect, and the

anger comes when you blame them for not living up to expectations.

I knew it well.

Because it had been easy.

Until it was so hard that I bailed.

My Review:

Steal by Rachel Van Dyken is the third book in the Seaside Series. For better understanding I recommend to read the books in order. As are: Book one, Capture is Dani and Lincoln’s story. Book two, Keep is Zane and Fallon’s heart wrenchingly story.
And now book three, Steal is Will and Angelica’s story.
Will Sutherland and Angelica Greene are both stars and famous artists. Will is a former boy band superstar and now a agent. He’s lonely, tired and doesn’t like his job very much – at times.
Angelica is a actress, Lincolns sister and there is bad blood between her and some of the friends in the group. Just like Will. The two share a history, a ugly one. Will is deeply hurt by Angelica. These two people are so broken on the inside.
Steal is a beautiful story about forgiveness, second chances, love and hurt.
I read this book in one sitting, I couldn’t put it down. I had to know what happens to the characters. Steal is beautfully thought out, beautifully written and beautifully told. I love the characters and I love how they interact.
I recommend this book and the series and give 5 Stars. Thank you Rachel Van Dyken !
