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…
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.



Rachel Van Dyken is on my TBR pile no matter what...if she has a book coming out, then I'm reading it.  So, why did this one leave me with a feeling of 'I don't want to review this book?'  I'll tell you why - I didn't like the hero.  I still give this book 4 stars but it was hard to read about how Will treated Angelica.  I get that she's the villain and she's done all these horrible things, but if a guy talked and treated me that way - he'd get my boot up his butt.  His friends were more forgiving and they're the ones that she really hurt the most IMO.  Yeah, he thought she did something on his side but it just didn't make it okay to treat her like he did.  Maybe, I'm from the old school where the golden rule still exists.  Will started to treat her better but I just felt that a lot of his problems were selfishness.  I loved the story of redemption on both of their parts and felt that the storytelling was exceptionally done.  It was well-told and well-written so that's why it got 4 stars.  My only issue was really the hero being a dick and I guess that's how it is in relationships.  There are two sides to every story and sometimes it's not as clear-cut as one might think.   I felt an immense sorrow for Angelica, even though she was meant to look like the villain through the book and she was in prior books.  I just couldn't hate her though and that's what makes an awesome author.  I've said that time and again - to take a character that people hate and make her likable is hard to do.  Rachel Van Dyken did this with no problems whatsoever!!
