    PTSD is not exclusive to military combat and Dani could tell you all about it, if she could talk. The trauma of losing her parents and surviving has changed her in more ways than one. It left her full of hurt, regret, shame, and feeling disconnected especially without the ability to speak. And even with all the love her sister and her extended and very famous family give her is not enough to break through, until the stunningly attractive and charismatic Lincoln Greene hires her as his assistant, gives her acceptance and treats her without kid gloves. But will it be enough to last longer than her summer job?

    Hollywood’s hottest heartthrob Lincoln Greene was born and raised privileged. Amidst fame he grew up with everything money could buy. But money can’t buy good parents and his could never give much less buy him love. And it’s left him with an emptiness he’s never shown anyone, until his latest underage, very forbidden assistant has him intrigued and tied up in knots, filling that void and making him want to spend time with her, want to make her smile and in general making him want. Can two damaged souls make one whole?

    Rachel Van Dyken knows how to write an awesome book. I wanted to devour it whole as the pages flew by and time seized to exist for me. Her wit and sass shine through in the playful, cute, touching and steamy scenes between the hero and heroine and lovable secondary characters that make this a wonderfully enjoyable read. I was hooked right from the blurb to the very end which has me completely intrigued about Zane and in desperate need to find time to read about every manly, overprotective man in the Seaside series.

    Even though Dani didn’t talk, she certainly communicated via texts. She’s quick, snarky and lively. I felt so much for her struggle, not just the guilt and grief, but for her lack of direction and self-worth.

    I could’ve been easily seduced by Lincoln’s innate magnetism but what made me completely swoon and fall hard for him was his vulnerability. On the surface, Lincoln fit the Hollywood heartbreaker stereotype to a T. He was charming and cocky but he hid the susceptible inside of a man that grew up in a loveless and even abusive home, who like to read, preferred a Game of Thrones episode to a party and packed a toy pig everywhere he went.

    I loved how he understood, accepted and supported her; the way he was thoughtful and put her before him.

    I thoroughly enjoyed their witty dialogue and flirty exchanges that made me smile, laugh and melt into sweet goo. There are so many awesome lines I highlighted it’s hard to choose which to share.

    Capture is book #1 in the Seaside Pictures series (a spin-off of the Seaside series) by Rachel Van Dyken. It is a full-length, New Adult, contemporary romance about acceptance, healing and love, full of quirky characters and the perfect mix of sass, hilarity, spice and emotion. Told from both points of view.

    Sorry, I couldn’t choose, these are other quotes I loved:

    The blurb sounded promising and entertaining and I sincerely enjoyed myself for a while,

    : gorgeous men everywhere, Hollywood movie star, Cinderella complex.

    , the text-messaging conversations and the building tension between them. The text message conversations really put a huge smile on my face, as it’s a favorite trope of mine in romance books.

    The story line definitely followed a slow pace, an instant-love and easy going romance. They’re both going the dance around each other for a while, Lincoln trying to keep the intriguing mute girl at bay because his conscience tells him she’s too young… While on her side Dani is decided to go after what she wants this time.

    This push and pull as well as a intrusive obnoxious group of friend resulting in a welcomed angst, until a breaking point.

    . I enjoy and even love NA when the characters are mature enough, and one of my concerns with this book was the perpetual discussion about the heroine age.

    Lincoln, acting like he was over 40 years old maybe, was constantly bringing Dani’s age into the equation. She was too young. She could not understand. She was only seventeen.

    I mean, okay, I understand this could be a problem because he was famous and of legal age, but what was the big deal about him being 21 and her being 17?

    He kept pushing her away only to come and get her the next minute.

    It was literally stretched and brought as an excuse throughout the whole book. Annoying.

    . Sure, Dani and Lincoln were cute together, the banter was playful and I could feel the tension building, but I definitely missed some sort of release.

    I’m not ashamed to say I like romance, but I like sexy romance, and although Capture has some sexy moments, it was all very tame… I’m not saying I needed raunchy moments, lol, but I didn’t feel any chemistry between the main characters in the bedroom.

    In conclusion, Capture was a really sweet and cute romance, delivering flirtatious banter and lovable secondary characters.

    On this note,

    “My body screamed for her. And my heart well… it kept reminding me that I needed to keep hers intact, and if I had any hope of doing that, I needed to go slow.”

    The characters are so adorable!Dani is sweet,funny and sassy!I love her and there were moments I wanted to hug her!And Lincoln is so charming,I couldn't stop myself from falling in love with him!!He is smart,cocky,sweet and so hot!But sometimes he is vulnerable and this is what makes him more real!Also the fact that he supports and accepts Dani made me swoon for him!!I loved all their dialogues,they are smart,flirty and funny!Her secondary characters play just as big of a role as her first and this made the story even better!

    ...then you probably haven't read the series and have no idea what I'm talking about.

    That's ok because I haven't read them either :P It's been on my TBR list for a while but I just haven't gotten around to reading it (maybe because it's YA and sounds like a love triangle it's going on in the first book :P).

    So this is where my journey begins because this book gave me a taste of the hot and famous studs from Seaside and now I just have to have more...

    But enough about those series. Capture brings back some of the character from the previous series but focuses mainly on the journey of some characters that where more secondary.

    Dani is a selective mute. What does that mean? Basically she can speak but the brain will not let her because of the psychological trauma she has suffered after her parents death. So the words just can't come out of her mouth.

    Lincoln is a Hollywood hottie and Dani's new boss. And did I mention he's hot? God I feel like a pedophile because he's only 22 but ohhh mennnnn....

    On paper this two don't really match but somehow when they come together they really fit...even if everybody else doesn't seem to see that...

    I read this book second and read Keep me first, so I kinda knew the ending of this book but I still wanted to know Dani and Lincoln's story. I admit, it wasn't as good as Zane's story but still quite enjoyable.

    Big name actor meets small-town teen girl, what could possibly go wrong, right? Well, let's just say a lot! Given the tragic history of how Dani came to be mute and what role Lincoln played in all that was just so sad to watch it all unfold the way it did. Dani can't seem to move on from her past and her remaining family is trying to do everything they can to make her want to live a happy life again. And that's where Lincoln comes in, since he needs an assistant at the set of his new movie. They both seem to kinda like each other but:

    - one, she's not the legal age;

    - two, he's a big name actor/manwhole, who's in town only for the duration of the movie making;

    - and three, she's got a lot of insanely protective guys looking out for her and they do not take it kindly to her dating other men.

    Yeah, their story is complicated... But also fun and interesting. At times I felt like they took one step closer and five steps back, so that was a tiny bit frustrating. They sure have some ups and downs but in the end their journey is so worth it all. I loved Zane, hadn't read his book first, I'd still end up loving him and his strangeness. All the other characters were super great, too and I'm happy I gave this book a chance!

    I can always depend on Van D for an A+ rom-com.

    Free w/ KU.

    So, this is a spinoff from a different series, which I haven't yet read and that aren't available on KU. But, I gather that the supporting cast here were all featured in their own books.

    I love the supporting cast... Hilariously fun makeshift family of rockers and actors. I need a Zane and a bag of marshmallows ASAP!

    FMC is a month from 18 & MMC is 22-years-old.

    The female MC has tragedy and a lifestyle that makes her

    , but she still has those little teenager moments to add authenticity to her age without making her too immature for the story.

    ^Given the h's age, this isn't a steamer with hot and heavily detailed sex scenes. <<< the lack of steam usually is not my cup'a, but Van D always pulls off the funny, sweet, and endearing to where I don't miss the steam that much.

    The MC story is a HEAFN ending... Satisfying, but no distant future epilogue with white picket fence and 2.2 kids.

    My only compliant was that the mute break wasn't more significant. It needed a more powerful scene IMHO.

    It's perfect for readers looking for sweet romance, lovable characters, and are in the mood for more sass and humor than erotica.

    NOTE TO THE AUTHOR : you and the hubby smoked the cover! Gorgeous! #liftmyownweight #girlpower ;;)

    This was an enjoyable, easy read! Although this can be read as a stand alone, I would recommend reading the other novels in the "Seaside" series to get a real feel for the background characters. Each character has a very unique sense of humor, so it made this book all the more entertaining. Looking forward to Zane's story!

    3.5 Stars. It's interesting that even in books, powerful events affect different characters to a degree that is only determined by their personalities, histories, etc. After a traumatic event, Dani lost her voice. On her own, she came across as sassy and sarcastic, even when only through text. Lincoln is a Hollywood heartthrob and friend to Dani's brother in law. He was sexy and funny. Sweet and protective. I liked how they were together despite Lincoln's understandable apprehension to her age.

I liked how they were together despite Lincoln's understandable apprehension to her age. I know some folks don't like underage heroines but she's 17, weeks away from 18. He's 22. I didn't see an issue with it. Hell, I've been married to my hubby since exactly that age. Poor Linc tries to stay away but the force is strong with this one, young Padawan. The story was funny, as I expected. The plot was so so for me. There was just something about Dani's trauma that didn't sell me. I definitely liked book two better, which I read before this one. Still, the execution is pretty solid. Safety: heroine gets kissed by another man, who she kisses back and likes it, even when she admits there are no feelings behind it. Hero has an annoying woman around who his publicist wants him to date. Their interactions are not romantic in the least and I don't believe they do anything sexual but the woman is possessive and rude... so slight OW drama. No rape or abuse.

    Dani's parents died in an accident that she thinks is her fault and ever since then she hasn't been the same. She became depressed, stopped leaving the house, stopped eating, and eventually stopped speaking. Being mute at seventeen, the time she's supposed to be living her life to the fullest, isn't fair or easy. Her life is going nowhere, until Lincoln Greene shows up and hires her as his assistant.

    Lincoln is instantly drawn to the girl in ripped jeans and too clean converse and wants to see her happy. He makes it his mission to get her living again but he has to keep reminding himself she is only seventeen, too young for him. But when competition shows up and starts to steal Dani's attention away from him, he'll have to reevaluate his plan.

    This story was a really emotional one, about two people healing each other with friendship and love. Lincoln and Dani were perfect for each other and I loved the connection they had. Lincoln was an idiot at times and there were some parts that I wanted to just strangle him for being so stupid, but he made up for it. A lot of second chances were given in this book and it added a little angst to the story but wasn't overly done in a way that was annoying.

    Dani was an amazing character and I admired the strength it took her to still go out in the world. People didn't understand her being mute and would tell her to just stop trying to get attention, but she didn't let their judgments break her. I did want a little more of her personal story, though. The journey to her finding her voice seemed a little rushed in the middle and it almost seemed like it came out of nowhere.

    I did enjoy the overall story but there were still a few things that bothered me, and it lowered my rating. So much of the issues between Lincoln and Dani were a result of him freaking out over the fact that she was seventeen. It got really annoying after her age was brought up over and over again. Honestly the age difference wasn't that big and she was less than a year away from being eighteen. I personally just didn't see the big deal about her age, so it was getting a little frustrating to hear about it constantly.

    I'm not completely against New Adult books, I've read plenty and loved them but I'm also very picky about them. I need heat in my books and sometimes New Adult doesn't have it. This was one of those. Lincoln and Dani were sweet and cute and oh so adorable *eye roll* but I wanted the passion and the chemistry and I was disappointed without it. They wanted each other but couldn't have one another, so I was expecting the sexual energy to jump off the pages, but it fell flat.

    Overall,

    is an amazing love story that any fan of a tortured heroine and New Adult romances will love. This is a start of a new series that is a spin off of the Seaside series but can be read as a Standalone. I haven't read the other series but I wasn't lost at all when those characters popped up. I did have my issues but they didn't stop my heart from melting over this story

    Dani's been through a whirlwind of hurt in her past. Some seriously traumatic events causing her to have some issues preventing her from doing things. No worries though, Hollywood magic is here to cure all that, right?!?!?

    I did enjoy this fast pace, fall in love over night, story. It was a little fast but this author makes it believable. It was amazing to see a slew of her characters come back and make appearances. So awesome. I just really really wish we would have gotten more to Dani & Lincoln's future and how things go, at the end. I know we have more to come in the series, I just felt it was rushed at the end.... but I do love hollywood❤️
