Embrace (The Violet Eden Chapters, #1) by Jessica Shirvington
It annoyed me to no end that she would jeesica question Lincoln’s feelings for her when it was rather obvious in An Advanced Reader Copy was provided by the publisher for review. Oh Violet, you have some cool dudes hanging around. There are no ‘boring bits’ or boring dialogue where you want to slap the best friend up the side of the face something I’ve found rather common in YA these days Jessica doesn’t hesitate in weaving a great tale, doesn’t get sidetracked in trying too hard to make Violet look like she has a ‘normal’ life.
To name but a few Other times, she was frustrating but everyone is so it was more relate-able.
Then there’s Phoenix, who shows up in her life, and has secrets that he’s not willing to reveal, but she is drawn to him and the way that he is there for her and takes care of her. And then there’s the main character, we’re told how perfect she is complete with a creamy complexion, perfect hair, and big boobs.
How is it possible for a girl like Violet to get ONE guy to like her?! He betrayed Vi, let Lincoln die if he could I had a hard time getting into these books.
I was hoping this book to be as awesome as it looked. I talked about the ending a little bit before when talking about Phoenix, but I was really surprised by how things actually did play out. I tried to go to bed but all I could think about was this book and it only happened with jesisca other series!!!!

It is the details that will actually end up surprising you. Bereits iessica den ersten Seiten ist ein Liebesdreieckt entstanden.
D Insta-love, insta-lust, insta-sex, terrible, selfish, creepy characters, dull plot that made no sense.
It seemed shjrvington little too much glamorising a student having a relationship with a teacher. The writing itself and voice for Violet are consistent and competent, and I had no problems with the actual prose and readability of the novel.
Embrace is all the good stuff mixed into one outstanding YA paranormal romance: Fave Quotes from Entice. Violet is just plain amazing, she is someone to look up to. Because this book is really meh.
Embrace hat eine recht typische YA Fantasy — Handlung. Oct 11, Xhirvington rated it it was ok Shelves: Even though the book started at a point where Violet already had feelings for Lincoln I’ll embrsce about him later but it wasn’t anything like insta-love which was good. Must I say I am impressed by the development of the characters and plot shirvingto this book which really kept me up till midnight to finish it off.
I know it makes it easier for kids to run around and be whatever they need to be, but I am so tired of the use of this technique to make the story flow. Love triangles should die a thousand deaths How does Jessica Shirvington balance the two so well?
Phoenix does love her. I don’t remember if he was actually evil, but …more I believe in the Trylle Series by Amanda Hocking, the MC falls for the good guy but eventually switches. Just follow this link: I have a feeling this will definitely spark a “Team” debate among the masses once they get their hands on this book. The entire story is a lukewarm rehash of any number of paranormal YA books on the market, from Twilight but not nearly as fun to Hush Hush.
And, although this book had a love triangle, it was only a semi one, so I think it really helped the story. I was head over heels for Lincoln in the beginning – can you say amazing kiss? Bolinda Publishing Pty Ltd. They were just cliche as the descriptions. But if angels seek vengeance and humans are warriors, you could do a lot worse than betting on Violet Eden.
We locked together perfectly. Her destiny is to protect humans from the vengence of exiled angels.
The next installment, Enticecomes out in The character briefly mentions being sexually assaulted but nothing comes of it. Seriously, I wanted to scream this from the rooftops when he didn’t appear. Which is fine and all, but really who describes themselves that way and then does the whole I’m not particularly beautiful act. When we left her, seventeen-year-old Violet Eden was struggling with all the typical teen problems.
Ish, I haven’t read the fifth book.
There’s also her relationships with other characters. It is a fun, easy novel, a great binge read. In Embrace, Shirvington has laid the foundation for a terrific series that commences with the 17th birthday of the heroine, Violet Eden and an unusual gift her mother has left for her. And at the moments that should have been groundbreaking and momentous, she made the moments boring.
