It starts with a whisper: "It's time for you to know who you are..."

On her 17th birthday, everything will change for Violet Eden. The boy she loves will betray her. Her enemy will save her. She will have to decide just how much she's willing to sacrifice.
Dangerously exciting and darkly romantic, EMBRACE is a compelling novel of good and evil, seductive desires and impossible choices. A centuries old war between fallen angels and the protectors of humanity chooses a new fighter. It's a battle Violet doesn't want, but she lives her life by two rules: don't run and don't quit. If angels seek vengeance and humans are the warriors, you could do a lot worse than betting on Violet Eden.
LINCOLN: He's been Violet's one anchor, her running partner and kickboxing trainer. Only he never told her he's Grigori--part human, part angel--and that he was training her for an ancient battle between Angels and Exiles.
PHOENIX: No one knows where his loyalties lie, yet he's the only one there to pick up the pieces and protect her after Lincoln's lies. In a world of dark and light, he is all shades of gray.
Two sides: Angel or Exile.
Two guys: Lincoln or Phoenix.
The wrong choice could cost not only her life, but her eternity...

There have been many books that always leave me wanting more. This book, left me utterly hanging at the edge of my seat. I have never been more sad to see a book end. I did not want it to finish!
Let me gather me words here,” The Bomb Diggity.” That’s right. This book is all kinds of awesome. What I loved about this book is the love interest. Straight up it held me. Friends for a long time, lies, betrayal and two hot boys fighting for her heart. What  more could I ask for! From the very first page, I fell in love. The tension between the characters nearly gave me heart attack! I swear, it was getting hot up in here!
The plot of the book is another great aspect to the story. Fresh and innovative, this is not another tale of angels. It’s so much more than that. There is fighting, action, secrets and best of all, a love that can not be relinquished!
Before I continue on yapping about this book, do yourself a favor and read it! READ IT!
Embrace is an heart pounding story that is tense and suspenseful. The unique perspective of angels, hierarchy’s and such, quenches the thirst for all angel stories. A mesmerizing, beautiful story, Embrace is complex, unpredictable and exhilarating!!
I give it 5 BITES!
Happy Reading!

    But, does it set itself apart from all the other angel books out there? I’m tired of angels. Is it really THAT good?

    I know right! I loved it to pieces (and Phoenix is definitely my swoon-worthy type!) Glad that you loved it as much as I did!

  3. I love books about angels – I cannot believe that I’ve left this one sitting on the bookshelf 3 times now! I’m going to have to wait a while before I can get it now, lol! But I am so happy to hear that you loved it so much – I’ve been lurking around your blog/IMMs for a few weeks now, you’ve doubled my TBR, lol, thank you 🙂
    Happy reading!
