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.

review

As soon as I started reading Embrace, I knew I was going to get sucked into the story. That doesn’t happen very often to me, so I was surprised by how much I wanted to keep reading. The hook for me was the chemistry between Madison and Issac because I’m a complete sucker for that.

What I disliked was the pacing where it would be all dialogue, and no action. There were a couple of scenes that surprised me, especially when Madison’s best friend Kaylee starts seeing things that aren’t there, but before that I found it rather boring. Suffice to say, I kept on reading because I wanted to know who was behind it all. And I was intrigued by the mystery and the paranormal romance that was developing. Thank God it wasn’t instant love!

I also rather enjoyed the characters. Madison is rather protective of her friends, and I love how loyal and supportive she is. Then there’s Issac who is that mysterious guy that every girl wants to unlock. Their relationship is cute, and not overly the top annoying or nauseating.

Characters
Likeable and definitely not annoying.

Pacing
More like stop and go. I’d rather have fast paced.

Cover/Design
Pretty, but the cover girl looks way too Photoshopped, and it’s obvious.

Plot
Liked it enough, but wanted more action.

Great romance, and very likable characters. The plot could use some work though.


quotes

You’re cute when you’re being all righteous.
Always remember, people fear what they don’t understand.
Time travels in one direction; you can’t go back in time and erase the things you don’t want to happen.

    I am a little confused about whether to jump on this book as soon as possible, or to just wait and see if I happen across it one day. On one hand, the synopsis intrigues me. On the other, your review kind of scares me. I like a good dialogue, but I like good old action as well. This sounds like it is balancing on a fine line. You know what? I think the best way to fix the issue is to just read it and make my own decision!
