My Thoughts:
I recently heard about this book last week and I am now SUPER excited for it!! I absoultely LOVE the cover! The colors are amazing and I love the faded wings effect! The plot of this book also is very intriguing..I am getting into books about angels and such so I can't wait to read this one!


I slowly opened my eyes. The sun speared its first bright rays of golden orange into the sky and I leapt from the cliff, with the sorrowful knowledge that no matter what the outcome, at least part of me would die that day...

Violet Eden is dreading her seventeenth birthday dinner. After all, it’s hard to get too excited about the day that marks the anniversary of your mother’s death. The one bright spot is that Lincoln will be there. Sexy, mature and aloof, he is Violet’s idea of perfection. But why does he seem so reluctant to be anything more than a friend?

After he gives her the world’s most incredible kiss – and then abandons her on her front doorstep – Violet is determined to get some answers. But nothing could have prepared her for Lincoln’s explanation: he is Grigori – part angel and part human – and Violet is his eternal partner.

Without warning, Violet’s world is turned upside down. She never believed in God, let alone angels. But there’s no denying the strange changes in her body ... and her feelings for Lincoln. Suddenly, she can’t stand to be around him. Luckily, Phoenix, an exiled angel, has come into her life. He’s intense and enigmatic, but at least he never lied to her.

As Violet gets caught up in an ancient battle between dark and light, she must choose her path. The wrong choice could cost not only her life, but her eternity

OH.
MY.
FREAKING.
GOODNESS!

I am in LOVE with this cover. Is it not gorgeous? The smoky wings = <3

Apparently this one is by an Australian author, and it's been out here for a while... Actually, scrap the 'apparently'. I KNOW it's been. But I really didn't love the covers, and I COMPLETELY ignored it! Is that lame, or is that lame?
With the US cover, I actually took the time to read the blurb and NOW I NEED TO READ IT! Ha!

FABULOUS pick, as always :D

The US cover is so gorgeous!! <3 I own book 2 and 3 in the series (Aussie versions), but not Embrace. I did read some of it before I had to return it to the library aaaages ago, but I really need to hurry up and read it in full. I love me a good angel story!
