Marissa's Rating:    4 out of 5 Power Binding Stars !!

Published by Omnific Publishing

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.

If you love to read YA...and love a beautiful romance.....with a helping of paranormal....then Embrace by Cherie Colyer is for you.

Madison, our lead, has to deal with a number of changes - and change is not her ideal way of dealing with life. With odd  happenings in her home town, in walks Isaac - a very hot and mysterious guy whom she's immediately attracted to. I did find that though the attraction was instant and acceptable, the love was a little too quick to happen - this is often the case in Teen novels and not always a bad thing....the author does need to keep the reader hooked on every page and sometimes dragging out a romance can be somewhat tiresome.  

The way Cherie Colyer has romanticised the connection with Madison and Isaac is great. A spark, a tingle and even a zap is shared by the two whenever they are together - it is only Isaac that has the control of his powers to keep them from passionate harm!  Madison has to learn to control hers to be able to even come close to the embrace and kiss she longs for with Isaac....he could make it happen - but he's gonna make her work for it first!!

Madison has embraced her witchcraft, and as a natural witch she will have some potency - but first she must learn to control her powers before someone gets hurt or she burns down her house!

Madison, Isaac, Josh and Kaylee must solve who is the witch behind curses and bind their power before someone is killed......and that would be Madison as all actions are pointed in her direction.  Just when you think you have it figured out and the characters have picked the same person....a twist, a turn, some stolen magic and you'll find yourself guessing again!
