CONSEQUENCE HAUNTS EVERY CHOICE

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.

Enticed (now retitled ENTICE) is the second compelling book in The Violet Eden Chapters.

My Review:
Initial Reaction:
I was really excited about reading Entice and learning more about Violet and her world. I was hoping for a lot of action and some more hot scenes between Violet and Lincoln.



Plot:
Violet Eden’s life is nothing like she thought it would be.

Becoming a Grigori was never part of the plan. Learning to fight Exiles and returning them is what her life is about now. Even while Lincoln grows more and more distant it’s up to Violet to kill the Exiles with or without her partner.

When the new reinforcements come they bring with them a bunch of surprises. One of the main rules of being a Grigori is no romance between partners because it weakens them. When Violet meets her new trainers Nyla and Rudyard two partners who are also soul mates everything changes. Now Violet is more sure than ever that Linc and her are destined to be together, that they too are soul mates.

Another surprise is that the other Grigori turn out to be great friends. Spence is just as crazy and adventurous as Violet which tends to land them both in a bunch of trouble. When a night out with her new friends leads to violet discovering just how much of a hold Phoenix still has over Violet, and the hold is a deadly one.

Now more than ever they need to find the list of names of the Grigori before Phoenix and that means traveling to the mountains of Jordan where loss and destruction follow. Returning home Violet has lost all hope and when the traitor is revealed it brings a shock to everyone.

Characters:
Violet is a lot more kick butt in this book. She is determined, and shows a lot of strength in this book I think we didn’t get to see a lot of in the first book.
Lincoln shows a lot of different sides of himself and I thought it made him sexier. He also kicks a lot more bootie in this book which rocked. Lincoln is totally awesome!
Steph is in this book a lot more due to a certain two Grigori in her life. She definitely shows her smarts in this book that was kept hidden in the first book.
The other Grigori: There are a lot of them and are very influential in this book. (due to my laziness I did not name them.)

Romance:
The beginning of this book there was little to none. Later though the romance level turned way way up! Loved it lots. Lincoln definitely showed a different side of himself and that made this book better even all the more tragic

Overall:
I enjoyed Entice a lot. The characters were a lot more in their depth I think. Lincoln is still brooding and sexy. Violet is back to normal and extremely kick-butt in this novel. Phoenix isn’t in this book as much which made me very happy. No offense to you Phoenix fans out there. Entice definitely left me wanting more and I was so happy I had the third book Emblaze at the ready!
