I have to admit, I’m not really a fan of angel YA novels. When I received a galley of EMBRACE to read, the packaging intrigued me enough for me to start reading.

Let’s just say I was hooked! I loved Violet, who finds out she’s a Grigori, someone who battles against fallen angels. Plus, I’m a huge sucker for a love triangle with amazing chemistry. Let’s just say Lincoln and Phoenix are two hawt guys!

So I had to read ENTICE. I even went back on Sunday during ALA this last summer just to get a copy.

Let me tell you, ENTICE exceeds my expectations.

In this second book, Violet is battling the hurt she feels at Phoenix’s betrayal and also what appears to be Lincoln’s rejection. And I thought Buffy had it bad with the day after with Angel. No, Violet gives a whole new meaning to this. Some hard truths surface that include Phoenix's true character. Plus a scary revelation about Violet that's almost too much for her to bear. Add to this the consequences to what happened between them. These consequences are far reaching in more ways than one.

I really love the sensory details that help show Violet's emotions and reactions to everything around her. Also there’s a mystery about Scriptures that ends up forcing Violet to confront Lincoln.

Lincoln and Violet teeter so close to having much more than a working relationship. I know I held on with baited breath, hoping for more. There's obstacles thrown their way which adds to some great tension.

There’s so much to love with this series. A kick butt flawed heroine with an anti-hero, Phoenix, that I totally love. Suspenseful, action-packed writing that sprinkles a bit of its magic on the reader. Totally addictive! And the chemistry sizzles, captivating the reader. I know it did with me!
I can’t wait to find out what happens next!
Good Points
1. Amazing paranormal tale
2. Action-packed, suspenseful trip through the world of a Grigori
3. A great new anti-hero, that you can't help but love
4. Engrossing tale
