Sometimes you end up hurting the ones you love.
You find you can't save them or yourself.
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.

My Take...
Ooooh how I love me some Isaac. Handsome and mysterious...dude is definitely hiding something. But does that stop Madison from falling for him? Nope, and who can blame her? All that mystery is just an invite to get to know him more. I just adored this book. There was such an appeal to the story that when I wasn't reading it, my nook kept beckoning me from my bedside table, mocking me. Oh how I wanted to know what secrets Isaac was keeping. Oh how I wanted to know what sneaky things the other characters were up to.

I went into this story not knowing what to expect. I had no idea if I was dealing with vampires, werewolves or heck, even wererabbits. *So not kidding.* But I like when summaries of books do not give anything away, and this one didn’t. I was pleasantly surprised with all the twists and turns, not guessing for even a second how the storyline would go. So with that, I will not share what mystery is hiding between the pages, leaving you to enjoy finding out for yourself.

Embrace has an incredible storyline, fun (and believable) characters, and twists that kept the story fresh and intense. This is one book I would hope the author plans to continue on into a series!
