"It starts with a whisper: “It’s time for you to know who you are…”

Violet Eden dreads her seventeenth birthday. After all, it’s hard to get too excited about the day that marks the anniversary of your mother’s death. As if that wasn’t enough, disturbing dreams haunt her sleep and leave her with very real injuries. There’s a dark tattoo weaving its way up her arms that wasn’t there before.

Violet is determined to get some answers, but nothing could have prepared her for the truth. The guy she thought she could fall in love with has been keeping his identity a secret: he’s only half-human—oh, and same goes for her.

A centuries-old battle between fallen angels and the protectors of humanity has chosen its new warrior. It’s a fight Violet doesn’t want, but she lives her life by two rules: don’t run and don’t quit. When angels seek vengeance and humans are the warriors, you could do a lot worse than betting on Violet Eden…"

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!
