just wanted her to stick up for herself and tell Julian to go take a hike But, if she had done that, there would have been no story.I don t know how I feel about Julian He was kind of the bad guy in this, but it did seem that he may not have been as bad as we are lead to believe I m thinking the author has plans for him in a future book.The father No redeeming qualities and I wanted to him to get his due Overall, a drama filled story that was pretty darn enjoyable Rachel Van Dyken delivers a story full of angst, drama, heartbreak, sexiness, twists and turns Stealing Her has it all.For the past decade Bridge has had one goal To take care of his ailing mother Ever since his father tore apart their family, choosing his twin brother and abandoned him and his mother, Bridge has worked tirelessly

family, choosing his twin brother and abandoned him and his mother, Bridge has worked tirelessly while holding a grudge And then out of the blue his father shows up at his doorstep making him an offer he can t refuse All he has to do is pretend to be Julian, his twin brother, who s hospitalized fighting for his life.It should have been easy Bridge and his brother had once been inseparable best friends The only problem is that he s fooling himself if he thinks he can stay away from his brother s fianc e The stunning and remarkably caring woman who clearly wanted to end her engagement with his neglectful brother How will the cards fall once the truth is revealed I don t think I had ever truly read a forbidden romance until I picked up Stealing Her This is not a typical man meets woman, they find a connection, fall in love, run into some roadblocks but then find a way to live happily ever after This is a rare and skillfully written romance I couldn t put down I was hooked from the start knowing that the proverbial shoe would eventually fall, not knowing how or when but eagerly anticipating it.When Bridge steps into his brother s shoes he realizes that not all is what it seems He realizes that the brother he had demonized had also had a difficult life being under their father s oppressive thumb But Julian had made one too many mistakes when it came to Isobel and Bridge couldn t help but fall for the gorgeous woman.Even though they were faced with an impossible situation, I really wanted Bridge and Izzy to find their happy ending The connection between them leaped from the pages I especially swooned over Bridge helping Isobel rebuild her confidence and give her space and freedom Even though he thought himself the villain, I loved him as a hero.Their circumstances where unfathomable, there was no easy out and in the end I had a huge book hangover with a montage of emotions The next book in the series can t come fast enough.Stealing Her is book 1 of the Covet series by Rachel Van Dyken It is a standalone, contemporary romance, told from both points of view with a happy ending.

of emotions inside your heart I was an emotional wreck after reading this one.Izzy was the kind of heroine, who felt like a helpless bird caged by ridiculous rules but will later turn into a strong willed, independent and determined woman No job, planning dinner menus, always keeping up with the appearances, what to wear and what not to wear, she lived her life under the thumbs of the Tennysons Her life revolved around Julian He slowly and gradually snatched her life, engulfing every part of her life Now, I am not the one to like meek heroines with no backbone Izzy, however, made me feel every emotion and root for her in all those situations Her feelings simply pierced my heart Julian was an asshole of one of a kind variety He was careless with Izzy He cheated, manipulated and lied to her at every other turn She was just an inconvenience to him Twin to Bridge, but vastly different from him inways than I can count And then happened the accident that turned all their lives upside down.Here s when Bridge had to step in the shoes of his twin He kept Julian s life alive for him, treasuring his fianc , saving his business and position in the company and dealing with his father, and in turn he sold his soul to bear the burden of his lies and manipulations Even though his reasons were honorable, he still felt like an impostor who stole his brother s life Bridge had always had always had the hard side of the life He worked tooth and nail to bear the medical bills of his sick mother Exacerbated by his father s biased feelings, burdened by his mother s sickness and their tough circumstances, he was a different man entirely than his entitled twin.The chemistry between Bridge and Izzy was intense I was afraid the slow burn was ready to set the book on fire Their dynamic connection had a buzzing electrifying current running underneath it It was raw with desire, passion, love and plain and simple lust Theirs was a relationship so beautiful that was about to burst with the tender care, compassion, warmth and an all consuming loveWhy are you marrying me He tilted my chin up with his forefinger and whispered, Because I want to spend the rest of my life trying to figure out how to not just make you happy but set you freeThis book was addicting, gritty and fast paced It kept me on my toes the entire time and I devoured it in a single sitting It had everything that makes a complete book strong plot, likable characters, story development, gut wrenching emotions and a beautiful ending This story struck all chords of my heart in the right place It devastated and then mended me whole I was unable to stop reading all the while cursing like a sailor at all the injustices done to her.Rachel Van Dyken is a fabulous author This story had so many facets and she carefully peeled layer after layer of this intricate web and slowly unwrapped the story behind every action She made me so conflicted about how I felt about the characters The beauty of her writing took me from despising a character to being confused to feeling empathetic in the end It was a whirlwind of emotions and I wanted to stay stuck in this tumultuous storm This was so good I love the author s other books, so I knew this would be great and it definitely lived up to my expectations The twin swap was done in a way that I can actually believe it and Bridge and Isobel s relationship was amazing He s such a good guy, he cared for Izzy and didn t want to hurt her or take advantage Isobel put up with a lot of emotional abuse from Julian because she hoped he d go back to being the guy she loved I wanted to tear through this as soon as I started and I This was so good I love the author s other books, so I knew this would be great and it definitely lived up to my expectations The

She clung to me like I was hers And I held her like she was mineI was beyond intrigued when I read the synopsis for this story Twins Hells yeah I devoured this book, glued to my Kindle, unavailable to the rest of the world until I turned the last page It was that good This story is kinda like Parent Trap meets Dynasty. Twin brothers separated from each other when their parents divorce each other There s pain and betrayal and anger and desperation involved Julian is with the ruthlessShe clung to me like I was hers And I held her like she was mineI was beyond intrigued when I read the synopsis for this story Twins Hells yeah I devoured this book, glued to my Kindle, unavailable to the rest of the world until I turned the last page It was that good This story is kinda like Parent Trap meets Dynasty. Twin brothers separated from each other when their parents divorce each other There s pain and betrayal and anger and desperation involved Julian is with the ruthless rich father and is raised to eventually take over his corporation He had the best of the best as far as material things go But, what he wants the most is his father s approval.The other twin is with their mother He had none of the material things, working three jobs to care for himself and his mother Always struggling and worried about their future He feels abandoned by his twin, but he also feels guilty for not being there to look out for him Though they are the same age, he was minutes older and bigger, and stronger.The last thing he wants is to help his heartless father, but he can t resist the chance to save the company for Julian Though his brother seems to have forgotten he exists, he can t escape the guilt he feels for not keeping the promise he made in their youth to always protect him.It seemed like a good idea at the time until her. How the hell is he supposed to protect his heart while protecting his brother s future How can he live with himself for betraying her trust by pretending to be her fianc He s supposed to give her back when his brother recovers, but what he really wants to do is steal her for himself.This tantalizing tale put me through the wringer as I worried and waited for all the neatly placed cards to fall I admit to having negative feelings about Julian based on other people s memories and encounters with him Since he was injured and unavailable for me to get to know I kind of tagged him the evil twin I know, not cool, right But, it was my way of giving the other twin permission to fall in love so I didn t join him in the guilt game Trust me, once you get a taste of the electricity sparking between them you ll feel the same way They need to be together ButNot all stories end happy Some end messySo, prepare yourselves,strap the hell inIt s so good I didn t want it to end I m consoling myself with the fact that it s only the first installment in the Covet series so there will beto come The line forms here
