Embrace is one of my favorite novels of all time and it has one of the best love triangles in YA. While Entice was a thoroughly engrossing read, it didn’t have the same qualities that pulled me into Embrace. Instead, it is much more action packed and driven by mysteries.
The very best part of Embrace, in my opinion, has always been the love triangle and the general romance. Jessica Shirvington has a knack for writing heart felt and steamy scenes. The love story is still present throughout Entice, but it isn’t the focal point. We also see less of Phoenix and the love triangle is seriously de-emphasized. While I wish there was more of Phoenix, there was still enough romance to keep me intrigued.
Rather than having the whole plot revolve around the love triangle, we see Violet training hard, kicking ass, and unraveling some serious puzzles. We get answers to a few of the questions we had at the end of the Embrace, plus a whole lot of other story lines that I won’t delve into it. Steph plays a more prominent role in Entice and it is clear that she is tough and smart--something that wasn’t as apparent in Embrace
