(Evolve Series #2)
(Evolve Series #2)
Evan Allen is a handsome, athletic, southern gentleman who now attends Georgia Southern University for no good reason.
After what he expected to be the romantic gesture of the century, Evan is looking at no friends, a year of ineligibility on the football team, and no girl.
He's starting over alone and doesn't know quite how to proceed. Certain members of The Crew refuse to let him face things by himself, taking him under their wing, and it doesn't take the ladies long to notice him, either.
Sometimes life doesn't go as you had planned. Sometimes it goes better.
Embrace, the second book in the Evolve Series by S.E. Hall, follows the characters from her debut New Adult romance, Emerge.
The perfect combination of sexy, sweet, and funny! S.E. Hall did it again!! I swear, this book was just as amazing as Emerge, if not better. I laughed out loud, swooned, and squirmed throughout the story line. The characters were once again, AMAZING! Seriously. The Crew was just...epic!!! Hilarious! I loved their interactions and chemistry!!! They just accepted, loved, and protected each other like one big, crazy family. I'm telling you, epic.
"Only a crazy woman can love you like crazy."
Embrace picked up the story line right where it left off in book one. So it's very safe to say, I was beyond anxious to see where the author would take these characters. Boy, was I NOT disappointed. Evan Allen was a true gentleman AND 100% hot and sexy! So, in other words, Evan was perfect. *sigh* I mean, on top of all the previously mentioned awesomeness, he was just SO attentive and caring, too!!! I swear, PERFECT.
"It's true what the say- if you look for the really freaking amazing in people, that's what you'll find."
Whitley... I saw so much of myself in her, that I was seriously blown away. I connected with her character immediately. In Emerge, she kind of got on my nerves, but I never really hated her. I mean, we really didn't get a lot of information on her, to begin with. But, after getting to know her here, it's clear as day, that she was simply misjudged... by everyone. My heart smiled seeing how Evan treated her. They were a perfect match...what they never knew they needed.
"You steal my breath away, pretty girl. I can't stop looking at you."
This book was so much more than just "Evan's story". We got to see all the amazing characters we've come to know and love, and join them in their respective journeys. Once again, we got multiple point of views! SQUEE!!! Have I mentioned before how much I love that!!!????? Because I totally do!!! It allows you as a reader to connect with the characters better and the general story line. So, mad props to the author!!! Oh, and FYI, Sawyer is hands down, one of the funniest characters EVER and I can't wait for his book!!! :)
So, okay... just in case you haven't noticed, I gotta tell you, I seriously loved this book. Eeeekk!! I highly recommend you read it!!
"...thank you, Evan, for choosing me and giving me everything I ever wanted."
Laney Walker is a quick witted, athletic, southern tomboy who lets few get too close, using her sarcastic zingers to deflect. She also has no idea how others view her, Evan having protected and coveted her since they were children. But college puts a gap between Laney and Evan that neither of them were prepared for- old relationships are tested, new ones are formed and nothing will ever be the same.
Especially when in walks one Dane Kendrick, not at all the familiar, southern charmer of home, but an animal all his own.
A story of growing up, friendship, loyalty, first love, primal love...and life.
