    17 Red Skittles

    I received an ARC for an honest review. I'm a huge fan of Rachel Van Dyken and Capture, well it did just that. It captured me from the very beginning to the very last words. Capture returns us to Seaside and introduces us to Dani and Linc along with appearances from our favourite Seaside gang. Capture deals with everyday real life topics such as tragedy, trauma, family, friendship and love. The story was whitty, fun and of course will make you cry. This is a must read and can be read as a standalone. I give it 17 red skittles!! Cannot wait for more!

    4.5 ~ Excellent Storytelling, Amazing Characters

    > > Judging a Book by it's Cover < < Unique composition. Models are featured in what looks like either a still frame or photo. Catchy title font. Strong author font. Subdued colors could allow the eye to skip right past it when hunting for a "next book" to buy and/or read. Synopsis is what grabbed at me. > > Looking Deeper < < POV ~> Alternating first-person POVs. Clearly defined, easy to follow. I received this book as the January "Book of the Month" when I signed up for a book club (listed below in disclaimer). Had I known this contained an underage lead character, I would not have accepted it. That said, I remembered how drawn I was to the synopsis and decided to continue on with it regardless (only after I began reading and it became clear that Dani was Seventeen). Hollywood Heartthrob, Lincoln is essentially a good guy, regardless of his reputation. Dani is a teen, right on the cusp of adulthood, that has experienced more devastation in her short lifetime than many experience in all. Together, they had an undeniable chemistry, which of course they tried to fight. I had not read the Seaside series, so the secondary characters were all new to me. Despite that, they were fairly easy to get to know without feeling left behind (too much). But there were strong bonds and deep history interwoven there that was hard to miss or ignore. Dialogue and cast interaction felt natural. The plot was energetic and the flow was extremely smooth - I rarely read a book in one sitting, but the writing and compelling storyline drew me in and would not allow me to set it aside until it was done. There were some minor conflicts that found timely resolutions. Predictability was very low. No shocking or fun surprises. Linc and Dani get an implied HEA which, presumably, will continue in the next book in the series just as the other couples' stories continued in the background of this one. The epilogue left the reader with a huge tease to Zane's story and I, for one, am dying to read KEEP. Overall, despite the lead female being underage, it did not scream of pedophilia. Dani, in many ways, had grown up much faster than other kids her age. The plot was dynamic... it made me laugh out loud, but it also had an elemental depth to it that made you feel sadness, anger, and grief as well. . Rating: [R] ~ Score: 4.4 ~ Stars: 4 (4.5, if I could) ========================== ⭐ ⭐ **** Disclosure of Material: I received a copy of this book from Steamy Calendar Girls and the Author/Publisher with the hope that I would voluntarily leave unbiased and unsolicited feedback. I was not asked, encouraged, or required to leave a review - nor was I compensated in any way. I am posting this in accordance with the Federal Trade Commission's 16 CFR, Part 255: "Guides Concerning the Use of Endorsements and Testimonials in Advertising". ***** ⭐ ⭐

    Another great book from this author.

    Capture is the perfect title for this book, because Rachel Van Dyken captured my heart with this story. I was so into this book that I carried my Kindle around the house with me. I read it while making my coffee. I read it while sorting and folding laundry. That’s dedication right there. I didn’t want to put it down. I wanted to stay there with the characters. Needed to know how it ended. Lincoln stole my heart from the get go. The way he was with Dani made me love him and hope that he could help her through the darkness. He was funny, and relentless. He never let her imperfections sway him from wanting to get to know her. He saw Dani, not her flaws or weaknesses, he just saw her. Swoon worthy should be Lincoln Greene’s middle name, ladies. Dani was sassy and sarcastic. I love those two traits in female characters. She wasn’t as broken as everyone thought. She was a fighter. I loved her wit and personality. Reading a character who is mute seemed odd when reading the synopsis, but Rachel did an amazing job at writing this part and it worked out great. If I had to relate this to a television show, I’d say it’s a cross between Friends and Gilmore Girls. The witty and sometimes off color banter was hilarious. The clan of friends were great and the conversation flowed nicely. I’m excited that Zane is getting his own book. I’m really looking forward to his story now. Another great book from Rachel Van Dyken.

    This is a very different kind of love story. Dani has lost her parents and her voice. She is 17 years old and her family protects her. When Linc comes into her life things start to change. Great characters and awesome writing.
