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?
Capture is the first book in the Seaside Pictures series and I really loved it. Now this is a spin-off of the Seaside series that I haven’t read yet sadly but trust me I plan on reading it very soon. That being said, while we get to meet the characters of that series and they play a good part in this one I still think you can easily enjoy this series without reading the previous one. Rachel Van Dyken has a way to enthrall her readers that they forget about the world around them and don’t want to stop reading. That is what happened for me.
Trauma and loss effects people in different ways, for Dani it has caused her to stop talking. She communicates through texts messages and even with doing that you can tell she has some serious sass going on. I really felt for Dani, she was suffering in so many ways that you could understand why she shut down the way she did. Lincoln is an actor and her boss. The chemistry between them is off the charts hot even if when the book starts she is only seventeen you can just picture how explosive they were going to be together, hell even from just a kiss you knew it was going to be something hot. Lincoln wants Dani but knows he can’t do anything until she is eighteen or their friends will murder him.
I loved the dynamic between Zane, Alec, Jaymeson, Demitri, Lincoln and Dani. I do think though that Dani’s sister coddled her more than she should have and that added to the situation. I also love how a character from one of my favorite series of Ms. Van Dyken’s is linked to Zane.
Capture was emotional, had angst, healing and most importantly love. I laughed, I cried, I just couldn’t put it down. I can’t believe I waited this long to read this one. Capture is a book I can easily recommend and one that I loved.
