Embrace by: Jessica Shirvington

I know I am posting the book review for tomorrow today, but I have tons of homework, so....here you go. Will be back on Wednesday to post the next book review.


Embrace (The Violet Eden Chapters, #1)I don't really know what to say. To be truthful, I would have never bought or even read this novel if it was on sale...so yeah. It was a little boring in the beginning to me, I wanted more convo. between Lincoln and Violet. But the rest of the novel was amazing, and entertaining.

I loved all the characters and what they represented to Violet. Lincoln, was her bestfriend and rock, someone she can rely on and knows that he would never betray her. Steph, one of Violet's bestfriends, she has so much clothes that she can open a department store but she always pushes things aside when Violet needs comfort. Phoenix, the guy at the club, the bad boy she knows she shouldn't want but embraces him in her life anyways. Then her father comes into play, he may be providing her a home and food but he isn't providing the fatherly figure Violet needs in her life.

In the end I really liked this novel and even recommend you to read it. I officially give this novel a 4.5 out of 5.

Here is the blurb:
It starts with a whisper: "It's time for you to know who you are..."
On her 17th birthday, everything will change for Violet Eden. The boy she loves will betray her. Her enemy will save her. She will have to decide just how much she's willing to sacrifice. 
Dangerously exciting and darkly romantic, EMBRACE is a compelling novel of good and evil, seductive desires and impossible choices. A centuries old war between fallen angels and the protectors of humanity chooses a new fighter. It's a battle Violet doesn't want, but she lives her life by two rules: don't run and don't quit. If angels seek vengeance and humans are the warriors, you could do a lot worse than betting on Violet Eden. 
LINCOLN: He's been Violet's one anchor, her running partner and kickboxing trainer. Only he never told her he's Grigori--part human, part angel--and that he was training her for an ancient battle between Angels and Exiles. 
PHOENIX: No one knows where his loyalties lie, yet he's the only one there to pick up the pieces and protect her after Lincoln's lies. In a world of dark and light, he is all shades of gray. 
Two sides: Angel or Exile.
Two guys: Lincoln or Phoenix.
The wrong choice could cost not only her life, but her eternity...
