What’s one little spell?

When you’re new to magic, one spell can be the difference between getting what you want...and ruining the lives of everyone you love.

Sixteen-year-old Madison has just embraced her magical powers. The trick now is learning how to control them. She and her boyfriend -and fellow witch- can’t even enjoy a simple kiss without getting shocked when their powers collide. Instead of mastering her new skills, though, Madison is stuck watching her kid brother and doing chores.

But being a witch does have its benefits. With a simple spell, Madison instantly conjures the help she needs around the house. Or so she thinks. Her idea of “help” invites trouble of its own as a pair of dangerous yet enticing beings enter her life. When a classmate disappears soon afterwards, Madison discovers she's the next victim of a threat she's powerless to resist...and there’s nothing it won’t kill to make her surrender.

Caught in the crossfire between two dashing but deadly creatures, Madison must figure out which one to trust and how to rid her world of the other—before one of them destroys her and everyone she cares about.

In this second installment of Cherie Colyer's Embrace series, we get a pretty different look into Madison and Isaac's lives. Embrace, the first book, was all about Madison Riley discovering who she really was and "embracing" her power. But now, in the sequel, Madison and her friends go on a journey unlike anything else they've experienced, one that gets them into a lot of trouble.

One of the things I enjoyed the most was the fact that Cherie brought it some myths and folklore. I always love to see other peoples spins on the different legends we hear about, and I got another taste of that in Hold Tight. I don't want to give away what any of it was, but let me just say that it was fun and also brought in some tension between characters that worked great.

We were also introduced to some new characters, along with the old. When you get used to a certain group, writing about them and understanding them, I think it's difficult to bring in a new group and figure out just who they are and what their purpose will be. But, Cherie did a great job and had me wanting to know more about them. I'm even curious now if one particular new character will be showing up in as the series progress. We'll just have to wait and see.

And if you really want to know what's in store for Madison and her friends, then check out the giveaway below.
