Publisher's Summary

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.

This is a New Adult novel - minor language, drug usage, and sexual situations. Not appropriate for younger listeners.

Pull (Seaside #2)

After everything Demetri has gone through with Alec, Nat, and the car accident he's finally clean and close to finishing rehab and therapy. With Alec doing promotion for the band in advance of them starting to tour again Demetri realizes how solitary is life really is. When Demetri and Alyssa have a battle of whits while fighting over taffy stores Alyssa manages to spark Demetri's interest.
Demetri doesn't know that Alyssa is still morning the loss of her high school boyfriend that died in a car accident they were both in. Alyssa doesn't know that Demetri is morning the loss of his girlfriend and nephew.

No one should be told how to grieve but I felt that Alyssa was holding on to the past way too tightly, and for someone who had felt loss she was very judgmental of someone else's pain and what could be considered loss for them.

Overall it was a great continuation from the other books in the series and it makes me so happy that Demetri got his own book.

The Audio for the book was very well done. Great performance from Luci Christian and Aaron Landon. They were great with the characters and voices.

Cute

A little predictable and too many usages of certain curse words (a bit superfluous), but a cute story with romantic aspects.

Great Series!

So book #2 of the Seaside series delivered even more drama and great banter! Loving this series.

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.

Since Demetri was not the brother for Nat! Will he be the right one for Alyssa? This book was another good read. I really love all the characters in this series! So I thought there was drama in book 1 well look out cause there is even more drama in book 2! You really should read this series! Better yet get the audio book cause its great!

Not bad.

I normally don’t listen to books about youngsters because I don’t care to listen to their physical interactions but this one kind of tugged at my heartstrings a little bit my only thing was that I really didn’t care for his brother and the brothers girlfriend constantly bringing up his past or his brother shooting daggers at him about his former addiction like how does somebody get past it if you got to keep bringing it up especially you’re my brother you’re supposed to be my biggest supporter. I really didn’t like that I don’t like to listen to audiobooks with family members being so intrusive or they have misplaced loyalty or they’re constantly blaming you for whatever went wrong in whatever relationship you were in that is probably one of my biggest pet peeve‘s when it comes to listening to audiobooks. That type of stuff really bothers me that and bitchy lead female characters bratty double standard whiny immature selfish! Anyway I like this book actually first time I’ve written a review where I like the book

😢

This is a direct sequel to Strung/Tear before the epilogues. This will pull hard at your emotions, especially if you've ever struggled with grief over loss. Has a hea and a cliffy.

Needed more chemistry!

The following ratings are out of 5:
Narration: 🎧🎧🎧
Romance: 🖤💜🤎
Heat/Steam: 🔥
Story/Plot: 📙📕📗📔
World building: 🌎🌏🌍🌎
Character development: 👱🏻‍♀️🧔🏻‍👩🏼‍🦰

The heroine: Alyssa - she works at her family taffy shop in Seaside. She lost her high school boyfriend in a car accident. She was in the car with him and blames herself.

The Hero(es): Demetri - a rockstar (along with his brother Alec). Former drug addict and player. He has been in love twice in his life. His first love slept with his brother, got pregnant and died, and his second love was Nat from book one. He was still great friends with her.

The Story: Demetri is still in Seaside trying to pick himself back up after nearly killing himself in a car accident when he starts working at the Taffy shop across the street from the one Alyssa works at. They meet and Demetri is instantly attracted to Alyssa. Alyssa sees pain in his eyes that looks similar to what she sees in the mirror each morning.

The narration was done by Luci Christian and Aaron Landon. Though I love the fact that there was dual narration, I wasn’t too fond of these narrators. Aaron landon has kind of a soft voice which didn’t quite fit the over 6 ft tall bad boy rocker. Luci was fine for Alyssa, but something was missing. It might have been the depressing storyline.

Alyssa just couldn’t seem to get over the death of her boyfriend, which got to me. I liked the beginning when Demetri and Alyssa were first attracted to each other. When Alyssa watched Demetri and couldn’t help herself. However, after it came out that she lost her boyfriend, it was all about that.

“Believe me he loved you. Who wouldn’t? I mean I love you and you’re kind of a mess.”

I don’t mind books where the main characters are getting over a trauma and though I know it takes a while to get over things like that, I don’t like it when it takes the majority of the book to do it. I like the romance books to be more about the romance and less about the angst. Granted the storyline about the grief group was good, but overall I just wanted more romance and less grief and depression.

good book

This was a good story about Demetri. His relationship with Alyssa grew as she learned the truth about Brady. It was interesting to learn exactly what happened with Brady and who was involved. I didn't foresee how his brother was entangled so that was interesting.

The narrator can make or break an audio book.

I turned it off in the 3rd chapter, as the male narrator’s voice grated on my nerves. The female narrator did a great job, but his voice did not convey the male lead as written, therefore; making listening unbearable.
