BLOG TOUR ~ Capture (A Seaside Pictures Novel) by Rachel Van Dyken

Release Date: August 20, 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? 



Rachel has a way with words. I wish I could be inside her head for just a few moments to see where she gets the ideas that she does when she decides to write a book. Capture is a must read book. It is not your typical love story, there is a back story that will touch your heart and blanket your sole as you see how Dani works through the struggles of speaking. Life is not easy and no matter how many times Dani was knocked down, she still managed to fight. After the tragic loss of her parents and a subsequent incident afterwards, she becomes a mute. 

Dani has been struggling to speak for months. She only knows what her voice sounds like from memories or what she remembers. Something we take so easy, such as speaking was difficult for Dani. Dani’s brother in law is an actor as well as producing a new movie featuring the story of her best friend who is a world renowned singer. When Dani was assigned to work for Lincoln, who is staring in the movie as her best friend, she never imaged how much her world would change.

Lincoln is a Hollywood heartthrob. Lincoln appears to have it all, but he is missing one thing. Love. He has had his fair share of one nightstands, but he doesn’t want that with Dani. She is special. She deserves more. But she is off limits, or at least that is what he reiterates to himself. Dani is SEVENTEEN. Lincoln likes to remind her that he is seventeen, just in case she forgets.

When she least expected it, words flowed from her mouth. Did Lincoln have something to do with it? Was it her excitement of seeing a whale perform? Was the connection she felt with Lincoln real or was it all an act?

As lines begin to blur for the two, a friendship turns into so much more. When the two of them can’t seem to be away from the other, one of them has to decide what will happen next. Will Lincoln ignore Dani’s age and follow his heart rather than his brain?  Will Dani push Lincoln until he can’t deny her anymore?

Rachel will take you on an emotional roller coaster ride with the emotions that both Lincoln and Dani are going through. Not only did I fall in love Dani and Lincoln, I fell in love with the entire cast from this book. Rachel has a great line up ahead for this series.
