Goodreads Synopsis

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...
I love angel books. I just gobble them up. 
Nom nom! 
When scouring for my next WOW, I found this one on Amazon and fell in love with the title, the cover, the synopsis, and Phoenix... ya, already.
I am hoping since the title is Embrace, there will definitely be a lot of it going on in the book.
So, I know, you are probably saying "There are just too many angel books out there!". But I am saying "Give me more!!" 
I know, I just can't help it, they are soooo addicting. So, I am very eagerly awaiting Embrace. I can't wait to see where the lineage and the angel love triangle, I-belong-with-him-but-he-makes-by-blood-boil romance goes!
So excited!

I've never heard of this one. I'm a bit wary of angel books I've had not so great experiences with them. I'll wait to check out the reviews :)
