REVIEW : Stealing Her by Rachel Van Dyken

November 3, 2019

blurb

My estranged twin brother, Julian, was always the wonder boy – and soon-to-be CEO of our ruthless father’s corporation. My mother and me? Left behind. Now, years after tearing our family apart, my father dares to ask “me” for a favor? Pretend to be Julian while he fights to survive a tragic accident. It can save the company. Nobody will be the wiser. It’ll be our secret.

I can play Dad’s favorite. I’ll do anything for Julian. And for my mother, who’ll want for nothing.

But this double life comes with a beauty of a hitch: my very real feelings for Julian’s fiancée, Isobel. Not only am I betraying Julian, I’m deceiving a woman I love. She doesn’t suspect a thing. As lies compound, lines are crossed and loyalties tested, all I can ask myself is. . .what have I done?

Because sooner or later something’s got to give. There’s no way I’m giving up Isobel. But once the truth is exposed, it might not be my choice at all.


I was falling for a woman who was and would always be his.


my review

Twists, turns, drama, betrayal, deceit, angst and so much more. Stealing Her sucked me in and I enjoyed every single minute of this story.

I loved Bridge. I felt for him and his mom. You could feel the love he had for her and that he was willing to do anything for her, even if that means pretending to be his twin brother and being close to his father. Isobel was hard to connect with throughout a majority of the story. I wanted her to stick up for herself, I wanted her to fight for herself. Really, I was just yelling at my kindle a lot. I am glad she kind of came out of her shell a little bit towards the end of the story. Julian, well its hard to talk about him. He comes across as the bad guy in this story, but also not. There were reasons behind why he did what he did. A part of me likes Julian and wants to root for him, because he does deserve more, but a part of me also wants to hate him.

Bridge and Isobel had chemistry. He gave her the freedom to be herself, to not have to fall in line with the picture-perfect life Tennyson woman should live. He mended her once broken heart and gave her the happiness she thought she lost.

Stealing Her is an enjoyable, drama filled romance full of lies, deceit and betrayal.
