Publisher's Summary

Cover by PS

From New York Times best-selling author Rachel Van Dyken comes the never-before-told story of the brothers from the band AD2.

One girl. Two brothers. Who knew that the sleepy town of Seaside, Oregon, would eventually be the location of both our downfall and our redemption? Drugs, sex, lies, shame...it all led us to the coast. It led us to her. And ever since we met her, our lives have never been the same. You may think you know what really happened - but you don't. After all, there's two sides to every story. This is ours.

Strung (Seaside #0.5)

Alec and Demetri Daniels make up the rock band AD2. Both of the brothers have met rock bottom, or as close as Alec is planning the let them get to. Now they are in Seaside Oregon to go through rehab and therapy while taking a step back from their rock star lives. On the first day at their new school Alec and Demetri meet a girl names Natalee and as history repeats itself they both fall for her.

Strung is written in Alec and Demetri's point of view. It is so easy for people to assume they know what someone else's life is like, or that someone else's life is without problems because they have money or privilege. Watching Alec and Demetri struggle to not only mend the rift in their own relationship but support one another because they are the only family the other has, while at the same time tearing each other apart because they cant stop the feelings that they have is so sad to see but also has you rooting them on.

Definitely worth the read. A great series.

The Audio for the book was very well done. This was the first book I've listened to by either Luci Christian or Aaron Landon but I will be looking for their other audios as it was a great listen.

Out of order sequence

Book 1.0 occurs before prequel book 0.5. She already had a relationship with the two brothers in book 0.5 before actually meeting them in book 1

really good

Not your usual rocker story. Not any sexy parts. But a really nice love story about 2 brothers and a girl. Well worth a credit. Narrator was very good.

Definitely Young Adult

As far as YA goes it is ok but if you are looking for steamy scenes or anything resembling dirty talk, search elsewhere. Narrator is good but again, it's all just meh. oh and book 1 is this same part of the saga from Nat's perspective. I started to listen but just didn't care enough to continue. Twilight this is not, sigh.

I Love the Seaside Series

RVD is my go-to author and I needed it today. As usual, I knew the story & writing would be will solid. She has yet to disappoint me. The narrators were good as well.
I must admit, I have read the whole Seaside series already, so this was a good Mpov to give me more insight to the AD2 guys. It is YA so no steamy scenes which is fine and it's not Twilight, which is also fine. IDK why people keep making the comparison.

THOSE FEELINGS!!

Highly recommend reading after Tear. Accidentally read all if these out of order because of how Audible suggested it to me, but it was the best accident ever. It gave such a real, heart wrenching twist on Tear. I can't imagine I would've felt if I had read it first. Thank You! I needed that.

Amazing!

Well, this was a very interesting listen between two rockstar brothers from BC and a small town girl who isn't starstruck. Loooved this tentative little love triangle tiptoeing on eggshells and how it tackles issues with addiction, the media, highschool, trauma and conflict.

Brilliant

This is the first book I have read/listened to by Rachel Van Dyken, and definitely won't be the last, She as been on my TBR list for ages and I'm so glad I stumbled across it on the included catalogue. Loved the story and the characters cannot wait to listen to the next book.
