Book Review: EMBRACE

Embrace (The Embrace Series, #1)Embrace by Cherie Colyer

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I enjoyed reading this book. The writing was clean and smooth, and I looked forward to returning to it each time I left it.

I don't normally read Paranormal Romance, but I enjoyed this story. If you're a fan of Twilight, I'm sure you'll enjoy EMBRACE. There are NO vampires, but there are similar themes as found in the Twilight series.

Here's what I loved about the book:
1. The writing was smooth.
2. The plot kept me guessing. I was pretty sure I'd figured out who the "bad guy" was, but I didn't know for sure until the climax.
3. Very clean. No sex (lots of kissing). No swearing. No violence (except for a tiny bit in the climax).
4. I'm excited that there's a sequel. I look forward to reading it!

The only reasons I didn't give it five stars were:
1. The main characters kissed too soon for me (but keep in mind, I'm not a "romance" kind of girl).
2. A lot of the events in the book happened to secondary characters rather than to the main character.
3. The climax wasn't scary enough for me (but keep in mind, I read a lot of Dean Koontz ... so I don't scare very easily).

If you love the young adult genre, and more importantly paranormal romance, you'll love this book.

What are you reading this weekend?

  1. Thanks for the review! I just finished These Broken Stars and started John Stephens' The Fire Chronicle.

  2. A very nice review. I just finished The Rope by Nevada Barr. A little dark, I preferred the earlier Anna Pigeon books. So now I'm looking for something a bit lighter. Time to peruse the old TBR pile.
