Review of Embrace by Cherie Colyer


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.

This book was a great high school read.  It combines the YA genre with the paranormal seamlessly.  There was plenty of mystery and teenage angst.
There were two sexy guys to complicate Madison's life.  Her best friend and ex boyfriend was a love that she still lacked closure for. Then the new guy, Isaac moves to town.  He is sexy and mysterious and turns her life upside down.
As the story is spun, the paranormal side of the story blooms.  Everything shifts and the world Madison knew evaporates.  She is pulled into a web of good and bad, secrets and lies.
This book deserves four glittery stars for the well built world that the author developed.  She wrapped up the story nicely and successfully kept me ready for more.

About the author:

Cherie's imagination extends far beyond her Illinois roots through her love of books and reading. The discipline of her career as a Network Technician provides an opposing mindset for her fictional stories. Cherie combines her fascination of all things mythical with her passion for writing to weave together middle grade and young adult stories.

She enjoys spending time with family and friends, meeting new people, writing, reading, and loves a challenge. While she has had many great experiences, her most satisfying experience is seeing her children and stories grow into their own exciting and distinct entities.
