Embroiled is unlike any other book that I have read in a while. I was totally hooked because all the questions that were popping up in my head where not being answered. I had a feeling that they would not be answered until I completed the book. There are three parts to this story and while each part is a very similar story Emily has a different problem that she is facing.  In part one Emily has the strong urge to walk over ice, even though she knows she will break through and drown. Her obsession is finding out what is waiting for her underneath the ice. While that doesn’t seem too interesting it does in fact become EXTREMELY interesting when a man named Yves comes into the picture (by the way, Yves is not from Earth).  Yves chewed his lower lip, “I’m the man waiting for you under the ice.” And with that statement he had Emily screaming as she ran away from him. Other actions happen which do not benefit Yves and his attempt to woo Emily so he must start over. Insert part two.  In part two Emily doesn’t have the obsession with the ice because she no longer remembers that incident, but now Emily cannot remember the people around her. Hmm, I wonder why? Insert part three, which is by far my favorite part! Emily must make a very hard decision about her future. But when it’s the person you have loved forever, how hard can one simple decision really be. This book is more real than most romance stories because it describes the struggles that Emily and Yves face, just like any real relationship outside of books. Embroiled ends in such a way that would make any reader happy if it was the end, but I feel that there is more to come. Darlene Jones has created a wonderful romance that will be shared for many years. This easy read contains 34 chapters which makes is a good length to read, not to short and not too long. My rating is 5+ stars!!!
