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.
Review: I have to say that when I read the first book that I couldn’t wait to read about Demetri. I will say that I am still Team Alec all the way. There is just something about Demetri that I couldn’t connect with him.
I did wonder what would happen to him after the whole Alec and Nat. I knew that he had to find his one true love in this book and I was right. Demetri has demons to face and a lot to get over to get his life back. Sure when he met Alyssa they didn’t get along. Alyssa had her own darkness to get over. So I knew if they could get along that they would really help the other out. Two broken hearts can make one mended one with some sharp edges.
I did enjoy this book and the emotions that you always go through when you are dealing with a Rachel Van Dyken book. Sometimes I wonder if I can make it through a book without being so in touch with the characters and their emotions. I have to say that I haven’t read one yet that I didn’t. You knew reading this book would leave you with a different point of view than when you started it.
The third book is just over the horizon and I ask myself if I can really wait. It will be some time but I can read other books by her until I get to the next book in this series.
