Enticed by Jessica Shirvington
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Source: bought own paperback copy
Please note this is a review of the second book of The Violet Eden Chapters and there may be spoilers in respect to the first book, Embrace.
I was really happy with the way book 1 ended and I really wanted to know how that decision pan out for Violet. After the ‘bang’ of finishing Embrace, I felt Enticed started at a slower pace though there were lots going on that it was necessary to go at a slower pace so I can get my head around it all.
I loved the new characters introduced in this book; an easygoing guy, a kick-ass gal, and also a couple which represent hope… for Vi, for Linc, for us. I am really loving Stephanie (she’s a True BFF!) and I’m happy that she’s got a bit of a role to play than just Vi’s bestie. The second half of the book went quite fast with lots of twists and turns. Tidbits of info are scattered like crumbs throughout and are begging for me to follow on.
The only disappointment I had was Lincoln, especially at the beginning. He wasn’t there as much in the beginning and I thought he seemed weak. In a way, this highlights Vi’s strength even more. Thankfully, he redeemed himself later on.
Enticed is a fantastic sequel full of friendships, betrayal, ancient secrets, and of course, love. I have completely enjoyed the read and have got book 3, Emblaze in my hand, ready for my reading hour (which is now).
I’m glad you liked the second book. Stephanie really is a great best friend. I never really loved Lincoln that much. I was swept away by Phoenix.
