Unfortunately, Stealing Her was my least favorite out of all of Rachel Van Dyken’s books I’ve read so far though overall, it was still an okay read.

In general, I just think the plot of this novel was a little far-fetched. It was a bit weird how the relationship of Isobel and Julian was pretty much over at the start of the book but once his twin brother Bridge had to step in for him after his accident and began treating Isobel

The blurb totally sucked me into this book. I loved the idea about a twin pretending to be their sibling. It was a bit unrealistic, but I did really enjoy the switcharoo storyline.

I loved Bridge’s character. He was a respectable hero and he had good reasons for participating in the deceit. I was rooting for him the whole way through.

Isabel was a bit harder to love. I just wanted her to stick up for herself and tell Julian to go take a hike. But, if she had done that, there would have been no s

Ever since his father tore apart their family, choosing his twin brother and abandoned him and his mother, Bridge has worked tirelessly while holding a grudge. And then out of the blue his father shows up at his doorstep making him an offer he can’t refuse. All he has to do is pretend to

This book had me all over the damn place. From feeling hopeful to uncomfortable to practically swooning with glee, my emotions were put through the wringer in Stealing Her. The reason for this was my simultaneous adoration for the characters as well as slight repulsion at what they were doing. I wanted them to have their happily ever-after and yet I acutely disliked the only means in which they could attain it. Despite the emotional roller-coaster a

I am a big fan of Rachel Van Dyken. While I did enjoy this book, I missed the humor I usually find in her stories. Izzy and Bridge were great and I could feel Bridge's distress and dread at what he got forced into (the father was a monster). I just felt like Izzy shouldn't have been fooled so easily. I did feel a bit bad for Julian, but you reap what you sow. I can't wait to see how he is redeemed in the next book.

I had other books queued up ready to read, and then I stumbled across the blurb for “Stealing Her.” I just knew I had to dive in immediately! What a ride! I was waiting for the other shoe to drop the entire time. The angst and suspense kept me turning the pages in anticipation, waiting to see when and how the twist would hit!

This book ended like what I’ve come to expect from a duet...a very cliffy ending! Although it’s not labeled as such, or doesn’t appear to

ARC kindly received via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

This was a pretty good read, although it was one that left me feeling angsty throughout pretty much the whole thing. The whole twin swap thing had to come to a head at some point, and it just kept me on edge.

I really liked Bridge. He was a great male lead, and whilst the whole situation is just a bit unbelievable and far-fetched, I suppose in the lives of the rich and famous, this like this could really ha

It felt so foreign, his skin. My eyes traced down his insanely built body.
And in my soul, I knew there was something I was missing.

Stealing Her was a passionate story about love, betrayal, hope and sacrifice. Like all of Rachel Van Dyken's books, I was swept away from that first page. The prologue was in the past and set the stage perfectly. We saw the family dynamics that shocked me and instantly made me feel sympathy and compassion towards Bridge. From there we got taken on a ride that was emotional, morally grey

I am a huge Rachel Van Dyken fan. When I read the blurb for Stealing Her, I was beyond excited to receive an ARC for this book. Twin brothers separated when their parents divorce is a premise that initially reminded me a little of The Parent Trap except for the fact that Julian and Bridge's father is a narcissistic egomaniac.

Bridge was raised by his mother in humble surroundings where they didn't have much financially but she provided him with everything she could and he always knew he was loved by her

4.5 stars!

This was a great story that had some twists and turns. Bridge hasn't seen his identical twin brother in years, not since they were ripped apart in middle school. When their parents divorced, they each got a child and that was that. Years pass and when an accident occurs Bridge is asked to do the unthinkable, but for the sake of his brother and his mom, he gives in. Running a multi-billion dollar company, be near his father and try to do what is best for his brother.

Review by Trinette Dungee

Bridge and Julian Tennyson, identical twins, both the apple of their mothers’ eye only one sparkles in their father’s.

Barely teenagers, Julian and Bridge are ripped apart from each other until the day Edward comes to Bridge and pulls him into a ruthless game to stay on top. While Julian lies in a coma fighting for his life, Bridge must pretend to be his twin brother. He needs to keep the company he knows his brother wants to one day become CEO of stay

A story that guys you right from the start and slowly puts you back together! Rachel is the master at crafting a story that has you so entranced you feel a part of every facet of the story! My heart broke for Julian and Bridge and their sibling bond but I have hope that not all is lost!

This story isn’t just a story of romance but a tale of what power, greed and list can do to someone! How we have to find peace and forgiveness for ourselves in order to heal! I absolutely loved this story and can

I was hooked from the start! The story captivated my attention as I wondered what would happen next.
Isobel or Izzy was at the center of all this. The tangled love story was told in such a beautiful way. Though it was a little messy it ended with Izzy and the right guy for her.
Julian and his brother's dad was an awful man. He did things only for the purpose of making money and publicity stunts. I was elated to see him get what he fully deserved.

Another amazing story by Rachel Van Dyken!

The blurb sucked me right in with the story and teamed with the fact it was written by one of my unicorn authors made me jump on it straight away.

If you love a story full of secrets, lies and deceit then this is the story for you. I experienced a lot of ups and downs, all the emotions reading this, hating the characters and then loving them again. The story had me glued to the pages because I needed to know what was going to happen next.

"She clung to me like I was hers. And I held her like she was mine."

I was beyond intrigued when I read the synopsis for this story. Twins? Hells yeah! I devoured this book, glued to my Kindle, unavailable to the rest of the world until I turned the last page. It was that good!

This story is kinda like Parent Trap meets Dynasty. Twin brothers separated from each other when their parents divorce each other. There's pain and betrayal and anger and desperation involved. Julian is with the ruthless rich f

A story forged in the fire of misunderstanding, mistrust, confusion, lies, deceit, love and lust that will create a pandemonium of emotions inside your heart.

I was an emotional wreck after reading this one.

Izzy was the kind of heroine, who felt like a helpless bird caged by ridiculous rules but will later turn into a strong willed, independent and determined woman. No job, planning dinner menus, always keeping up with the appearances, what to wear and what not to wear, she lived her

I have yet to dislike a RVD book! No matter the genre. Rachel brings you in, makes you fall in love with the story, and makes you wait for more! Bridge has one goal and that is to take care of his mother and out of the blue is father shows up to make an offer. He needs Bridge to take his twin brothers place. In comes Isobel, Julian's fiancé and the person that wants to end her engagement with Julian. Then begins the forbidden romance between Bridge/Julian and Isobel. I do think through out the s ...more

Romance Schmomance (Malia)
Kind of wished I read the synopsis before reading this one, so I could have mentally prepared myself a bit.

I can't say I could justify the actions of everyone, the ultimate betrayal happens and even in the name of love, I couldn't quite accept it.

I'm 100% invested because the ending kind of had me a little sad and just needing more.

The writing is great and Rachel always delivers, it just wasn't the story for me.

Full review to come.
