How far would you go to save the people you love?

Madison is familiar enough with change, and she hates everything about it. Change took her long-term boyfriend away from her. It caused one of her friends to suddenly hate her. It’s responsible for the death of a local along with a host of other mysterious happenings. But when Madison meets a hot new guy, she thinks her luck is about to improve.

Madison is instantly drawn to the handsome and intriguing Isaac Addington. She quickly realizes he’s a guy harboring a secret, but she’s willing to risk the unknown to be with him.

Her world really spins out of control, however, when her best friend becomes delusional, seeing things that aren’t there and desperately trying to escape their evil. When the doctors can’t find the answers, Madison seeks her own.

Nothing can prepare her for what she is about to discover.
Dangerous, intoxicating, and darkly romantic, Embrace is a thriller that will leave you spellbound.

My Thoughts:

When I first began reading Embrace, I had no idea what the supernatural element was going to be, which intrigued me. It was like discovering witchcraft right along with Madison.  Embrace is full of dangerous enemies, heart-clenching romance, and deadly consequences. And as soon as I was on that beach with Madison and met Isaac, I felt the zap! The story was enthralling, and the thrilling and mysterious and, yes, shocking (literally!) Isaac Addingtion is non-stop hotness. With each new turn of events, I found myself more and more invested in what was happening with the characters. Curses, magic, love, desire, hate, and intensity were on every page.  I could relate to Madison and her fear of change and losing those she cares about. Her character and attitude were very believable, and her relationships with her friends and family were well written. I felt her triumphs and her failures and even her awkwardness. I did feel that, with her fear of change, she accepted the cause for Kaylee’s illness a little too easily, but it didn’t really bother me too much. The twists and turns and near constant revelations about the characters kept the story interesting, and the reveal of the villain was a surprise.

Overall, Embrace was a fun read with a good story and an interesting supernatural element. I’d definitely recommend it to those who enjoy a good supernatural romance.
