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.
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.

Book Review: 4,5 Stars


Steal features the second chance romance of Angelica and Will. Think of it as a redemption romance.

Angelica and Will met when their careers were in the highest points, he the most famous singer of a boy band and she the sexiest teen actress. They had an instant real connection. Will was her first in everything, first real kiss, first to make love, first real friend. Angelica was the firts girl who made him want to have a relationship, who made him fall madly in love. They were everything to each other, until they weren’t. Sadly, fame is ugly and makes people jealous and selfish and make awful mistakes that could ruin lives. In Will and Angelica’s case, their mistakes ruined both their lives.

So many years later, Will was an agent and Angelica’s his newest client, and obviously Will had her career and practically her life in his hands and he was being mean, really, really mean to her. And despite all her heart ache, she kept her head high and did the best she could do to get her career back in track, but it was really hard for her. But the truth was that working with Angelica, being near her was really hard for Will too, because everything that happened in the past also broke his heart.  

When working together looked like real torture for both of them, ended up being the best kind of redemption for their love, because after so many years, all that anger and hurt was only shielding their immense love that was still alive inside their hearts.

What did I love the most about this book? Their forgiveness. They did so many wrong things in the past and despite all those years of hard feelings, self loathing mostly, they found a way to forgive each other, and be happy again.

Steal is the third standalone novel of Seaside Picture Series. The writing was awesome, the characters development was good too—a little immature if you ask me—and the amount of drama in it, despite being more than what I usually like in books, was perfect for the story. 100% recommended.
