Summary

Life as a teenager is never easy. But for Natalee Murray, things have just gotten way more difficult. Bored with life, she can't wait to graduate high school and get out of town, especially considering the famous band members from AD2 suddenly start attending her school, making her once-boring life absolutely insane.

It starts with a pen. A single brush of fingers and she is captivated. But Alec and Demetri have a dark secret, one that could shatter their reputations and Natalee's heart. What do you do when one guy paints your life with color while the other infuses your soul with passion? How do you choose when your heart is divided?

This is a New Adult/Mature YA. Minor swearing and drug usage.

Tear (Seaside #1)

When Alec and Demetri Daniels move to Seaside Oregon for rehab and therapy they turn Natalee's world upside down. Not only do they make up the band AD2 and bring out the fans and media, but they are also struggling to find their footing together and heal.

Natalee doesn't know the whole story about why Alec and Demetri have moved to town, but she's in love with both of them, just in different ways, and stuck right in the middle of the two of them.

This book is the same story from Strung but told from Natalee's point of view.

More than once I got a bit annoyed with the way Natalee acted but its easy to forget that these characters are teenagers in high school. Overall it is a great book and definitely worth reading the series.

The audio for the book was great. This is the second book I've listened to by Luci Christian and again it was a great performance.

Great Find

I stumbled upon this series by chance and fell in love with it.

Life as a teenager is never easy. But for Natalee Murray, things have just gotten way more difficult. Bored with life, she can't wait to graduate high school and get out of town, especially considering the famous band members from AD2 suddenly start attending her school, making her once boring life, absolutely insane.

It starts with a pen. A single brush of fingers, and she is captivated.

But Alec and Demetri have a dark secret, one that could shatter their reputations and Natalee's heart. What do you do when one guy paints your life with color while the other infuses your soul with passion? How do you choose when your heart is divided?

The messed up love between Alec, Demetri and Nat was extremely interesting. AD2 seems to have so many skeletons in their closets. This book was funny and entertaining to me. I love the characters and the banter between them. I highly recommend this book to any one who love a good book!

Great Read

Tear (Seaside #1) was a great read by Rachel Van Dyken. Natalee Murray cant wait to graduate from high school and get out of town. Especially as the famous brother bandmates from AD2 started attending her school.Alec and Demetri have a dark secret that could ruin their reputations as well as Natalee's heart. I really enjoyed reading this book and cant wait to read more by the author.

Heartbreaking

This is really heartbreaking but a oddly hopeful story in the end. Narration is done well and overall it's a good listen.

Not a fan of ending

Don't like Nat or Alec characters any better in this version of book 0.5. Narration was good.

Love triangle

I really enjoyed this storyline. I found myself understanding why she had feelings for both boys.
They were both so amazing in their own ways. I really loved how it turned out and who she ended up with.

🤔 hmm...

A highly angst filled journey of young love, back and forth between two brothers. It was hard to understand how these young people had so much freedom to do things adults would do and their parents were not around. That being said, this story is entertaining and kept me hanging on till the end.

It was just... OK.

It was just... OK. Natalee was basically an idiot. Sigh. She chose the brother who was drunk, high, kissing some other girl, and doing other thoughtless, selfish idiotic stuff but Alec was perfect? Yeah, made no bloody sense.

It was almost 2 stars for that alone.

Not bad

I enjoyed the story except for the mother daughter relationship. My mom is a mental health care professional and she has always been aware of me and my feelings. Maybe it is my mom but I’m can’t identify with that relationship.
