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.
I don't really know what I was expecting when I agreed to review Embrace, but I have to say I was not expecting this! I love, love, love books about witchcraft and since I had no idea that was going to be the direction, I was pleasantly surprised!

Madison hates changes (she's a lot like me in that aspect). Change can only mean one thing...something bad. So when Madison's best friend, Kaylee tells her that her life is about to change, she knows it's going to be bad. Turns out it's not as bad as she feared, when she meets the new boy in town, gorgeous, sweet Isaac, and feels instantly connected to him.

At first, I didn't really understand the insta-connection between the two of them, but it makes more sense when you find out what's really going on. I ended up really liking the two of them together. I also loved the dynamic between Isaac and Josh, Kaylee's boyfriend and Kaylee and Madison. The friendships felt real, which I enjoyed.

I really liked Madison because she is so realistic. She is the girl next door, nice and friendly, but I loved how willing she was to do anything to help her friends. I liked watching her grow as a character. She is also extremely loyal, which I respect.

Embrace has a little bit of everything. There's mystery, romance, and plot twists that I did not see coming. It will be interesting to see where Cherie Colyer takes us next!
