From the Publisher: 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.
4 Stars

I really went into this book blind. I had no idea what it was about because, as you can see above, the blurb is mostly vague.

I ended up absolutely delighted with it! My favorite books are of the witchy variety, so I was very pleasantly surprised to discover the witchcraft that this book is centered around.

Madison is a natural witch; but she doesn’t know it yet. And that’s pretty much how I’ve wished my entire life to be! I’d love to discover one day that I’ve got all of these innate powers coursing through my veins.

That would rock.

Just like this book did.

It’s not the best written book in the world. But the characters are genuine. Madison and Isaac’s relationship developed in that too-fast stereotypical fashion that often plagues YA novels, but it worked in this book. In fact, I hope that this book turns into a series, because I’d love to see more of them. Plus, any witchy series automatically ends up on my TBR list.
