Book summary from Goodreads: 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.
Crystal’s Review: My collage classes have recently started back and I have been swamped with homework. I decided to take a day off from my work to read this book and I am so happy that I did. I will admit the cover did not really grab my attention the way most covers do. It is pretty for sure but it did not really have anything about it that made me go I need to read that book. The description on the back of the book however grabbed my interest and I could not resist reading the book after reading it. I really enjoyed the story. I was hooked right from the beginning, the characters all seemed very real to me and the author did a fantastic job describing each one so that I could picture and connect with every character. Issac was my favorite character by far. Many stories these days have the situation where girl meets guy, girl falls for guy, guy shows interest in girl and then promptly beings to treat her like dirt and then finally admits he loves her and was only doing it for her own good. I am so tired of that line, Issac however displayed some hesitant feelings but he stuck around for the whole book. I felt like the supporting characters where a big part of the book and not just cardboard cutouts tossed into a scene when convenient. I appreciate when an author takes the time to make her supporting characters just as real as her main ones. I could tell the author spent time working on her descriptions of everything from smells to feelings and it made the book that much better. Overall this book is a wonderful read and fairly short so it can be read in a day or so by most people. I am highly anticipating seeing what else this author has to offer.
