Pull: A Seaside Novel, by Rachel Van Dyken
Blurb from the book:
Jaded rock star, Demetri Daniels, is in Hell — also known as Seaside, Oregon. Sent to rehab after nearly getting himself killed last year, his record company wants nothing more than for him to lay low, away from the limelight.
Irritated and more alone than he’s ever been in his life, Demetri tries desperately to rebuild his shattered reputation as a drug addict and player, which proves to be difficult when he meets Alyssa.
Alyssa is everything he should stay away from. She’s beautiful, smart, but above all else, she’s damaged. And one thing Demetri has learned is two broken hearts don’t equal a whole.
In the end, he has to decide if he can rise above the life he’s created in learning from his past mistakes, or fall into the darkness of his choices.
I must confess that this is book two in The Seaside Series and I have not read book one. However, I didn't feel like I couldn't understand what was going on nor did I feel lost. If anything reading 'Pull' made me want to go back and read 'Tear' so I can be caught up! I was literally 'pulled' into this story immediately! It was so magnetic that I found that I couldn't put the book down! 'Pull' is full of powerful emotions: anger, sadness, love, and hate. It is a dynamic, edgy, and dramatic story! A book you won't soon forget, Rachel Van Dyken has done an excellent job crafting this story! I am now going to buy book one to catch up and then anxiously await the release of book three!
No sex, just sexual references, but there is cussing. Discusses alcohol and drug addiction recovery.
You can pick up Pull via Amazon or Barnes and Noble.
