Rating: ✪✪✪ .5
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?
Capture by Rachel Van Dyken is an engrossing NA Contemporary read which can be read in one sitting.
Straight away I was intrigued by Dani our lead protagonist, I wanted to know why she couldn't speak , I wanted to know her story. She was a character I instantly connected with and cheered on her journey. Lincoln the love interest was a great guy. He didn't get on like he was your typical young Hollywood guy. He was sweet, caring, had morals and was just and altogether lovely guy.
The supporting characters where fun especially Zane who I predict his story will be told in the new book. Some of the characters within the book are from Rachel's other seaside series, and as this series is a spin off, of the previous series at times I did feel like I was missing out having not read their stories previously. But I only felt this a little bit and was still able to enjoy Dani and Lincoln's journey.
The story was fast paced and had me turning the pages, however I would have liked a little more depth with Dani and her being mute ,it seemed to move too fast and at times be looked over a little but this is maybe me being too picky.
Overall I found it hard to rate this book as I did really enjoy it however there just was something missing for me to give it any higher than 3.5*. However I will continue with this series and if your looking for a fast read with a sweet romance, with fun characters you should pick up Capture.
