    Rachel Van Dyken adds a flawlessly sexy and angsty romance to her Seaside Pictures series.

    For over a decade “once bitten twice shy” is rock star Ty Cuban’s mantra and while he’s done many thing to avoid getting his heart crushed again dating two crazy women at once wasn’t a good idea. Especially after they trample him on live national TV. Not to worry, his band mates have the perfect punishment. A summer teaching guitar to kids over the summer.

    Rachel Van Dyken adds a flawlessly sexy and angsty romance to her Seaside Pictures series.

    For over a decade “once bitten twice shy” is rock star Ty Cuban’s mantra and while he’s done many thing to avoid getting his heart crushed again dating two crazy women at once wasn’t a good idea. Especially after they trample him on live national TV. Not to worry, his band mates have the perfect punishment. A summer teaching guitar to kids over the summer. Which wouldn’t be so bad if it weren’t for the fact that one of the other volunteers is the sexy rock star who broker his heart in the first place.

    Abigail Von had loved Ty when she was young and naïve. Now, she can’t stand the sight of him because he can still make her heart skip a beat and body melt. Spending an entire summer working together is going to be pure torture, especially since she’s also forced to share a living space with him. Will end up killing each other or giving love a second chance?

    No matter its span be it a full length novel or a short novella, Rachel Van Dyken know how to write an incredibly hooking story. I read this in a single sitting engrossed in all the funny bits where all the gang is meddling in Ty and Abigail’s lives, in touching ones where we learn about Ty’s sad upbringing and its impact on his relationship with Abigail and the very steamy ones because Ty and Abigail just couldn’t contain the attraction between them no matter how much time had passed.

    Even though Ty started out as the stereotypical rock star who indulged the perk the life style afforded him, underneath the swagger hid a man who just wanted a family to love and would love him in return. I totally fell for him and wanted him to find exactly what he was looking for.

    is a standalone novella in the Seaside Pictures series by author

    . It’s written from both points of view with a happy ending and no cliffhanger.

    If you're wanting a peek into the RVD Universe, the 1001 Dark Nights Novellas are the perfect way to jump into a series and this installment is from one of my all-time favorite series by Rachel - Seaside/Seaside Pictures.

    Ty is helping out his fellow bandmates and friends with a summer camp in Seaside but the last person he ever expected to see was Abagail, the one person who ripped his heart out 10 years ago and he's never been able to get over. The two together are combustible and somehow they need to make it through the summer without killing each other. Ty doesn't think he can sink any lower until an overheard conversation breaks the last part of him that was holding out hope.

    I loved Ty and Abagail. They both had their reasons for the baggage of the past and the two together are not only like dynamite going off when they fight but when they give in to each other they are flaming hot too!

    Quick sexy, fun read that will have you wanting more!

    Review by Lisa Kane

    I love Rachel Van Dyken's Seaside series. I have to admit though, there were so many characters in this story, that I had to keep going back to the previous books to keep it all straight. (Maybe a character tree like they use for family trees to make it easier!)

    Review by Lisa Kane

    I love Rachel Van Dyken's Seaside series. I have to admit though, there were so many characters in this story, that I had to keep going back to the previous books to keep it all straight. (Maybe a character tree like they use for family trees to make it easier!)

    Ty Cuban had a bit of an incident while on stage with his band Adrenaline. To do penance, he's agreed to go to Seaside in Oregon and teach at a kids music camp. What he doesn't know is that Abigail Von, his ex, is also there.

    It's been ten years since their relationship crashed and burned. Ten years since either of them has really felt alive. But Ty resents Abigail for breaking his heart. He's refused to give it to any one else-screw 'em and leave them before he can get hurt is the way he's lived his life. When Abigail left, he felt alone and abandoned. No one will ever do that to him again.

    Abigail is not exactly thrilled to see him either. She's questioned her decision to leave him a hundred times. Seeing him will only dig up all the feelings she's tried to keep buried.

    But things don't always work out the way we planned. It seems fate just keeps putting both of them in each other's path.

    I love a good novella, they make for quick reads that pack a lot of punch without taking up oodles of reading time. Abandoned is a quick read, but has tons of angst and humor. Getting to spend time with all the secondary characters who were the main attraction in previous stories is a huge plus!

    Abandon is a novella created in the Seaside Pictures series to introduce you to this world and its characters. After reading the blurb and liking it, I thought it would be a chance for me to read a story about a rock star’s second chance at love. The main characters might have had a happy ending to their story but it left me empty wondering how they got together in the first place.

    Abandon is a novella created in the Seaside Pictures series to introduce you to this world and its characters. After reading the blurb and liking it, I thought it would be a chance for me to read a story about a rock star’s second chance at love. The main characters might have had a happy ending to their story but it left me empty wondering how they got together in the first place. The two main characters of the story came across as dysfunctional and angry.

    Communication between Ty and Abigail wasn’t their strong suit, especially when it came to their feelings. Their time apart was all based on miscommunication and misperception. Not much was revealed about their past and how it all began for this couple. That might have shed some light on why they need to get back together. There was a slew of secondary characters to add to the story but it was hard to keep everyone straight.

    However, there were a few good points about the book. The author knows how to write good snark from a male perspective. I have to hand it to her that she made it entertaining and funny. Another good point about the book is that it’s about family. When the one-person Ty was related to dies suddenly, it is his close friends and bandmates that comfort and support him. It put things into perspective for Ty and Abigail to what is important and how they needed to try harder to get along in order to be together.

    This story was meant as a stand-alone and hopefully encourage you to want to read more in this series. I can honestly say that it did quite the opposite. The message of love did come across late in the story and the main characters did find their way back to each other, but did nothing to want me to want to read more.

    It’s not every day you're slapped on stage by two different women you've been dating for the last year.

    I know what you're thinking. What sort of ballsy woman gets on stage and slaps a rockstar? Does nobody have self-control anymore? It may have been the talk of the Grammy's.

    Oh, yeah, forgot to mention that. I, Ty Cuban, was taken down by two psychotic women in front of the entire world. Lucky for us the audience thought it was part of the breakup song my band and I had just finished performing. I was thirty-three, hardly ready to settle down.

    Except now it's getting forced on me. Seaside, Oregon. My bandmates were more than happy to settle down, dig their roots into the sand, and start popping out kids. Meanwhile, I was still enjoying life.

    Until now. Until my forced hiatus teaching freaking guitar lessons at the local studio for the next two months. Part of my punishment, do something for the community while I think deep thoughts about all my life choices.

    Sixty days of hell.

    It doesn't help that the other volunteer is a past flame that literally looks at me as if I've sold my soul to the devil. She has the voice of an angel and looks to kill—I would know because she looks ready to kill me every second of every day. I broke her heart when we were on tour together a decade ago.

    I'm ready to put the past behind us. She's ready to run me over with her car then stand on top of it and strum her guitar with glee.

    Sixty days. I can do anything for sixty days. Including making the sexy Von Abigail fall for me all over again. This time for good.

    Damn, maybe there’s something in the water.
