Tear (The Seaside #1)

Tear (Seaside, #1)
4 of 5 stars false
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


****I was given a copy of this book for my honest review****
There is something about a love triangle, that if done well just makes a book. I am a sucker for them.
Natalee is a teenager who feels ignored by her parents and pretty much feels invisible. She is bored in her small town literally can't wait to get out of there and go to college.
Things are made interesting with the entrance of two famous rock stars, Alec and Demetri.
When the boys start attending school and both seem to be interested in her, Natalee finds herself in the middle of a love triangle. Secret's, lies and a tragic past stand in the way of everyone finding happiness.
Although this book was YA and brought with it all the angst and drama that Young adult books usually do, I was not put off. Because this book actually felt like it had something else, a bit more feeling. Alec and Demetri were all that I was expecting from teenage rock stars, but there back story and the secret...god, it was torture. I felt bad for all involved.
I loved that this book had a little mini comparison to the most famous recent love triangle of the last few years, Twilight. It gave me a little chuckle, especially because I was comparing the two in my head at the time. Tear was a thoroughly enjoyable young adult, romance. Very well written and paced, I will be checking out more from this author.
