Entice by Jessica Shirvington

438 pages, YA paranormal romance
The Violet Eden Chapters #2


Violet Eden is Grigori - part angel, part human. Her destiny is to protect humans from the vengence of exiled angels. 
Knowing who to trust is key but, when Grigori reinforcements arrive, it becomes clear everyone is hiding something. Even Lincoln. The only thing Violet does know: Phoenix's hold over her is more dangerous than ever. 
The race to find the one thing that could tilt the balance of power brings them all to the sacred mountains of Jordan, where Violet's power will be pushed to the extreme. And the ultimate betrayal exposed. 

Enticed is the second compelling book in The Violet Eden Chapters.

My 2 cents

A great sequel to Embrace!  I absolutely adore this series.  It has steamy forbidden romance, epic adventures, half angels with wicked powers, and crazy scary villains! What more can you want in a YA book?

This story starts with our main characters Violet and Lincoln in a crazy place.  They are both very much in love with each other, but cannot be together because they are Grigori partners, and must depend on each other with their lives.  On top of this, Lincoln is still extremely jealous and upset over what happened with Phoenix.  Which I get, but its not like Violet had any control over that situation.  She was completely manipulated by Phoenix, and now she both regrets everything with him, but still yearns for him like a junkie, which she tries to hide from Lincoln.

On top of this, Magda is creating a wedge between Lincoln and Violet, so neither is really aware of what is going on with the other.  For Grigori, this is BAD! How can they protect each other?

There are multiple threats in this story, so at times this felt like 2 or 3 shorter books condensed into one journey.  They did relate to each other, so the story worked, but at times it was a little confusing.  I think that's my only complaint.  I was still completely with the characters, especially Violet.  I am so in love with Lincoln!  I wish he was mine!  (Sigh) 

The ending left us with a pretty big cliffhanger, and our God Squad (as Steph calls them!) was feeling pretty hopeless by the turn of events.  I can't wait to read the next one!  5 stars!
