R E V I E W ➠ Stealing Her by Rachel Van Dyken
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.

“She clung to me like I was hers. And I held her like she was mine.”
Not my first read by author, I have read almost every single book of her’s so I am familiar with the style. Although this new series one, blew me away. I wasn’t too sure how I would feel about another man’s woman so to say, but this worked.
This story comes with some grant twist and turns. One family with a huge secret, betrayals, lies…but the romance in this sneaks up on you. The swoon factor is pretty high still, even though some scenes got me a little worried but it all came together so well…I couldn’t put it down.
Now the story revolves around the hero Bridge and heroine Isabel…Julian is the twin brother, the bad guy if you will. In which later you do find out that, maybe he wasn’t as bad as it seemed. I really hope the author has a story of his own in the near future. There is a whole big scandal happening and the twin’s parents are high and mighty elite in the rich and famous, therefore no mistaken can be done. This is where Julian’s twin brother comes in, as the stand-in if you will. But his secret is that he is truly in love with Isabel. What happens next is a new level of deception, danger and love. The author did a fantastic job on the start of this new series, and I am looking for more DRAMA FILLED books! *Side note: I kind of, I don’t know if I fully connected with Isabela, took me hot minute. ALSO, the father: NO GO, at anything. Horrible man, sadly this is probably how things really do work in the rich world!
