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.

** The book was provided to us for an honest review.
We were in no way paid for our opinion **

WITCHES!  WITCHES! WITCHES!  I was so thrilled that this book was about witches.  The witches in Embrace kind of reminded me of a mixture of the ones found in Charmed and when Willow went all dark eyed evil with in Buffy.  LOVE!

The knowledge that this book was about witches doesn’t happen right away!  When I first started reading Embrace, I thought that it would be another one of those insta-love, jealous friend, love triangle type books all over again.  I was wrong.  Reading further into the book is when the real fun happens.

It opens up with our main character, Madison, getting ready to go to a bonfire with her bestfriend Kaylee.  It is at this party that we get to meet Mr. Sexy himself, Isaac Addington.  Mysterious, sweet, and thoughtful Isaac.  Truly swoon worthy, FYI.  It is also at this party, that we get to meet the “mean girls” of the story…Paige and Emma.  What is the deal with them?  Perhaps they are jealous because Madison got Isaac before Paige?  Or could there be an even darker underlying reason…

We watch as Madison struggles with her heart in deciding if she should really open up to Isaac and give him a chance, or would she betray everything she had with her ex, Kevin, and risk their chance of every being together again…even though they hadn’t spoken in, like, a month…

We are also treated to a magical mystery!  Kaylee suddenly becomes completely delusional, causing her to be admitted into hospital.  With the help of Madison and the crew, Kaylee is “escapes” the hospital, and learns of the world of witchcraft, and the role it plays in the lives of her friends.  It’s now up to this new Scoobie Team (a la Buffy) to get to the bottom of this and figure out who keeps causing these downfalls!

The author, Cherie Colyer, has such an addictive writing style.  Her descriptions of the magical elements in Embrace, as well as her fabulous character building is what made this story all the more enjoyable.  Although there is a twinge of insta-love, you can’t help but ask whether the love is real, or perhaps it’s just all part of the magic…

Fans of witches will enjoy reading Embrace, and will fall in love with the unforgettable characters.
