Blog Tour ~ ARC Review ~ Capture by Rachel Van Dyken

CaptureeARC received via Inkslinger PR in exchange for an honest review

Release Date: August 20th 2015

Losing your ability to speak at the age of seventeen; it’s not normal or fair.
But trauma, has a way of throwing normality out the window.

Dani lives anything but a normal life.
Her sister is married to one of the biggest names in Hollywood.
Her best friends are rockstar duo AD2.
And she has more love around her than most people experience in a lifetime.
But that doesn't change the fact their parents are dead.
Or that it's her fault.

It seems her new normal is being a mute, living on the inside, unable to actually communicate on the outside.
That is until Hollywood’s newest heartthrob Lincoln Greene hires her as his assistant for the summer.
He's gorgeous, completely unavailable, and unobtainable.
But that doesn't stop her from wondering...if things were different...would he want her?
If she was whole, would he be the other half?

My Opinion

I just love this author. Seriously, I have yet to pick up a book by her that I haven't been totally enthralled by. I will admit her Eagle Elite series will always top my favourites of hers, but every other book is great, and Capture was no exception.

I didn't know there were previous books in the Seaside series when I signed up for this tour. However, while I thought that might be the case while reading it due to the secondary characters having found their matches. I was still able to understand and enjoy it to its full potential. From the start it had me hooked and I couldn't stop reading even when I should have been working.

Rachel Van Dyken just had a great style. I love how she merges serious issues in with her laid-back and humorous comments. Her characters are always well-rounded and put a smile on my face. I get their humour and I never want the books to end.

In Capture Linc was no exception. Gone are the Hollywood stereotypes in this book as he's a down-to-earth, loveable guy. He had a good head on his shoulders and he was sweet. I loved him.

Similarly, Dani was an interesting character. It was an unusual concept that she didn't speak because of trauma for the first section of the book, but The author still managed to convey her personality brilliantly. I liked it overall, it made things different and gave her a real hurdle to overcome. Moreover, the fact the her development was combined with a sweet, passion-filled romance didn't hurt. I thought there was a good amount of chemistry between the two.

Overall this was another great read by this author. I would say I'm sad to get to the end like normal, but this time I have a few previous books in the series to read!
