Memory Lane Monday: Entice by Jessica Shirvington

Yes, it is that time of the week. The day we dread and wish would never come- Mondays. *Wipes tear* But have no fear, Memory Lane Monday is here! Every Monday, here at TheYABookworm, I'll do a special post called Memory Lane Monday. What's that you ask? Memory Lane Monday is a once-a-week post where I (or any other bloggers that wish to participate)  choose one book that I've previously read to be featured on that day. From the book chosen, I will pick two of my favourite quotes and write a little blurb containing my quick thoughts on the book. The books that I choose will not be books I've reviewed- since I've read so many books, I want to share with you my opinions on ones that I won't get the chance to fully review (because seriously, rereading dozens of books would take a year...or two)! Be sure to participate by leaving your "Memory Lane Monday" in the comments, or a link to your blog post with the hash-tag #YAMemoryLaneMonday on twitter :D

This Week's Memory Lane Monday...
Entice By: Jessica Shirvington
Add To Goodreads
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.

Top Two Favourite Quotes...

#1 Spence came up beside me. "Da da da dah-dah, da da da dah-dah, da da da dah, da da da dah, da da da-dahh."
"Star Wars?"
"Crap. I was gong for Indiana Jones," he said.

#2 I don't know that I will ever do nything in my life remarkable enough to make me deserve you, but I promise you Violet, I will try every day for the rest of my life." He took a step back and toom in the sight of me in way that insides flip. "When we get home, I plan on showing you just how amazing we really can be together."

     Entice is the second instalment in the Violet Eden series by author Jessica Shirvington. I've had Entice on my bookshelf for a while now, but found myself very hesitant to read it because of my feelings about the first book, Embrace (review here). I didn't like the direction the romance angle took, and I wasn't quite sure how much I liked the main character, Violet. All that being said, I found Entice to be tremendously better than Embrace-- it saved this series for me!

     Entice is definitely an instalment Lincoln fans will devour! I really loved how Entice really focuses on building a romantic relationship between Violet and Lincoln-- you may think Lincoln is all sweet, but he sure does have a sexy side! In addition, unlike Embrace, I connected with Violet a whole lot more in this book. I really admired her determination and close bond with her best friend, Steph (and may I just add a HUGE thank-you to Steph for knocking some much needed sense into Violet when she started going down the assumption train....seriously, thank-you! *cheers for voice of reason*)!

     All in all, I really enjoyed Entice and am excited to read the next book in the series, Emblaze. The ending of this book was kind of a killer, so I'm anxious to find out what's next for Violet's story! Have you read Entice? What do you think about the Violet Eden series? Be sure to let me know in the comments below! Keep Reading!
