This book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.
The second stand alone in the Seaside Pictures series. Zane's story...
My names shouted on rooftops, it's written on bras, on the inside of bathroom stalls, hell my name is everywhere to say my name is to experience an orgasm without ever leaving your damn house.
My name is Zane Andrews.
I'm a rock god.
I'm also...a virgin.
I devoured this book like Zane eats marshmallows!!!
I think I say this in every review for this author...no one writes better romance with such fun loving, adorably irresistible characters. I love that I live so close to the real Seaside portrayed in the books. It's so much fun reading them.
Hot, sexy rocker Zane seems so put together, but is actually so broken. His story gutted me reading it. Thankfully, Fallon fell into his life (literally fell..it's so funny) and help him see that there was good in people. Fallon is adorably nerdy. She is more in brains and beauty. She is kind, caring and doesn't realize she has looks that make Zane go crazy. Zane is in a dark place and being around Fallon helps him. I don't want to give to much away, just know that this book is so good. All the gang from the Seaside series and Pictures series are here, so of course lots of crazy fun. I highly recommend this book!
I would give it a 10 if I could!
Keep, is one of those stories that really grabs you. It really just held my heart. I felt their love, their heartbreak, and their love again.
Zane is so hilarious and so full of life. Even at the times he feels that he has no idea whats going on with his life. Having writers block and afraid of the future. I loved how Fallon and Zane meet and their banter with each other, it’s just.. I fell in love with these characters. In the very first book you got little pieces of Zane. But now you get everything.
I was thinking just the other day, that a book really hadn’t made me tear up in awhile. I yearned for it in a way, only a reader can understand. I wanted to be engulfed in this epic romance. I wanted to feel what the characters felt. And as usual, when I think of something, it happens in a few days. This was a surprise release and I’m glad I stopped what I was doing to read it.
Rachel, really surprises me every time. The way she’s able to write, like these characters are real. I felt the ache in my chest and yes I did cry. I’m not ashamed. I loved Keep, it kept me and wouldn’t let me go till the very end.
I can’t give this book any more than Five Boundless Stars. But trust me, If I could give it more, I would....Lissa
a force to be recokoned with!
What do you get when the hot, unattainable rock God crosses paths with the nerdy girl?
I have to admit that Keep os my first RVD YA book and WOW she totally blew me away. This is a beautiful story of friendship and love.
I absolutely LOVED Zane and his many layers, and getting to peel away at those layers to learn more about who he is as a person will really surprise readers and make you heart him even more.
Fallon..the nerdy girl…I completely loved her! Not only for her friendship towards Zane but her ability to see him as something more than a rock star, for understanding his quirks and going along with them, for being supportive of his music…for just being an awesome person, a positive influence in his life. <3
This book definitely had its share of beautiful moments, OMG the steamy moments, and then some gut wrenching moments that brought tears to my eyes. The twist OMG I didn’t even know what to do with myself because I was so, so, SO heartbroken. My stomach was in knots 🙁
Of course I can’t tell you what happens because that will ruin the book for you but I will say this – Rachel Van Dyken can write anything she puts her mind to. I have read her contemporary romance, her romantic comedy, her infamous Elite series and I am now a fan of her YA books too. She is a force to be reckoned with I completely LOVE everything she writes. She is a literary genius and I look forward to what she has in store for us readers next!
