Welcome to our blog!
Amy and Jennifer ARE Seduced by Books. We’re both in our 30’s, moms, close friends, work together, and share many of the same interests including our love of reading. Amy grew up in Maryland and has been obsessed with Vampires for as long as she can remember. Jenn grew up in Florida and loves the furry, the fey, and the fangs, in that order. Currently we are both in Orlando, FL. When we can be pulled away from books, Amy loves to bake and Jenn loves to take pictures and scrap.
We decided to create a place where we could direct friends, and acquaintances for, book suggestions/recommendations (Jenn’s been known to talk to strangers on the train while traveling in NYC). Once we started out with a simple page, we evolved from there. Now we are sharing our book reviews, fun comments, recipes, and giveaways. We try to give reviews on new releases, pre-releases, and oldies but goodies that we read, or are reading. We’re going to be adding author interviews for established and up and coming authors soon.

Embody by Jamie Magee

Embody ( A Young Adult Paranormal Romance) (Insight Series)Not many Scorpio's are known for their patience, and Willow Haywood is no different. Her only desire is to love Landen Chambers and redeem the lost souls of Esterious, but the path to that desire is long, dark and dangerous...
Before Willow's life had a chance to balance the sudden revelations and grief she had to endure to get to Chara a disturbing discovery is made. A photo, one that shows Willow blissfully embracing the flawless image of Drake Blakeshire; giving her not only proof that she had lived before, but that she had loved him. 
Running away from the memory of Drake's hypnotizing touch, and the prophecy set before her seemed like the logical thing to do. That is, until a dark dream reignites her passion to save the hopeless dimension of Esterious. Willow struggles to find patience - to learn everything she needs to know before she faces Drake again, but her eagerness is dangerous and one step in the wrong direction takes everything and everyone away from her - the only way to survive this trial is for Willow to remember who she is and what she really wants out of this life.(courtesy of Amazon)

Jamie Magee hits us with Embody – Sequel to Insight
Willow and Landen held my heart from Insight – but Drake is slowly digging his way in after finishing Embody.  Magee’s world of alternate dimensions and crossing through strings is extraordinarily consuming!  Twisting the world on love, zodiac signs, and other worlds is fresh and welcomed!
I was anxious to get my hands on Embody after reading Insight.  Thankfully a little ARC fairy sent one my way.  The emotions Willow deals with in this book, and not just from her ability, but that she has to deal with just to get through are well defined by Magee.  As a YA read there is plenty of passion, laid out as our couples find their true love, their soul mate.  In Embody, our characters learn to use that bond with their souls to further express their love for each other. 
Don’t get me wrong – it’s not sappy romance – there a trial that Willow and Landen must endure and that’s if they can stay strong together.  Drake is hot on their tails, and finally crosses their paths where they battle with new 'powers'  All throughout its strategic planning – who can be one step ahead of the other
Magee comments that Image – book 3 – will be out THIS year!  For a genuine story with heart and twist, grab this series.
