Book Review - STEAL by RACHEL VAN DYKEN
Steal is a book that will make your heart bleed and then put it back together again.
Will and Angelica are damaged, him full of hatred and her full of despair. The tension between these two so thick that you almost feel the air being choked out of the room. My heart broke almost immediately for these two knowing that beyond the hatred and despair were really two lost souls that took so many missteps to get where they were.
Would they make amends, could they forgive and move past and could they do it together?
Will he was so blinded by anger and I didn’t blame him one bit but my heat truly felt like it was coming apart at times for him with how he was towards Angelica in the beginning. Even though I knew he was not just angry but somewhat lost himself.
Angelica I truly felt for her, losing almost everything. I felt every emotion coming from her.
This books is filled with angst and there are moments that will rip your heart out a few in which I could feel the tears threaten and at times spill down my face.
This book does have some light moments though that will make you chuckle a bit and provide a bit of relief from the heavy and will have you smiling just when you need it.
I’ve not read the other books in this series but I definitely will go back and read them and I will anxiously wait for the next book in this series and I am now hooked on these characters.
A fantastic second chance romance with a storyline that will consume you and characters that you want more of.

Steal, the follow-up standalone rockstar romance to the #1 New York Times 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.
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.
