    Review Copy Provided by the Author

    I started reading Embraced not knowing that it was the second book in the series. If I had started reading the first in the series like your supposed to, I would’ve got more information about the Conditioned. You really need the information so that you understand what’s going on.

    Embraced is a well written book and I really loved the plot. The author did a wonderful job bringing all the characters together. I liked seeing how Seven started out being a very timid woman to becoming strong individual. She wasn’t used to human affection or interaction. Ben showed Seven how to love and that there are people in the world that weren’t prejudiced and judged you for being different. Ben is the man that any woman would want to fall in love with. He does he’s best to help the woman he loves so that they can be together. When he loses Seven he does what he can to get rights for the Conditioned. Using his skills as a lawyer to the best of his ability. The way she shows the love between Ben and his daughters and how he tries his best and does whatever means necessary to keep them safe. It really made me wish I had a father like that.

    I’m going back and start reading the first book in the series. That way I can better understand what a Conditioned is. I can’t wait to read the rest of the books and find out if everything works out.

    Favorite Quote: “You know that Gene, Ella, and yes-you-are all Conditioned.”

    Loved It!

    There were ghosts in the neighborhood and they were disrupting life in the community as they knew it. When the task of exorcising those demons falls upon Benedicte Lavelle's shoulders, he wonders just how he'll make things happen. Through normal channels the prospect of getting rid of the hauntings seem unlikely until his brother suggests he take the most unexpected route possible.

    Acquiring the services of a Conditioned named Seven-Two-Four, Benedicte is assured that she'll help him in putting the ghosts to rest. Her abilities allow her the opportunity to see the entity's residual signatures which she'll then use to her advantage in hopes of sending the ghosts on their way. This task, unfortunately, is not as easy as it sounds. Should anything go wrong in the process, Seven runs the risk of being incapacitated completely for the rest of her life.

    With no other choice but place his trust within Seven's hands, Ben prays fervently that she'll be able to do what she's been sent to do and fast. Dodging attempts on their very lives, Ben begins to wonder just what he's gotten himself into. Yet his determination strengthens as he becomes intent on discovering just what is going and what Seven has to do with everything in the first place. As the two set out to vanquish the evil coming at them from every side, they stumble upon a plot they never saw coming - one that may end up being their very end if they're not careful.

    I ended up starting the series on this second book but found that it wasn't really necessary to read the first book before this one. Rebecca provides the reader with just enough insight as to what the events were in the first one that allows this second book to act as a standalone novel, so to speak. The intrigue and suspense is just enough that the reader will find him/herself caught up and wanting to know what happens next. I absolutely loved the story and look forward to the next book in the series.
