Embrace The Heat by Cassandra Lawson ARC Review:


On her seventh birthday Layla’s mother mysteriously disappeared. Raised by a wood nymph in one of the few remaining human settlements, Layla learned to fight from an early age. She also learned to distrust the vampires who rule most of the land. When a vampire saves her life, Layla finds herself more than a little drawn to him, even knowing he could never give his heart to a human.

The trauma of his childhood left Simon weary and distrustful of all humans, until the day he saved Layla’s life. After seeing the spirited human fighting like a seasoned warrior, Simon can’t help but respect and admire her. He soon learns that Layla is much more than he ever imagined, and he finds it hard to stay away from her. Despite the depths of his feelings, Simon knows there can be no future for them.

Both of their worlds are turned upside down as Layla nears her twenty-seventh birthday. Suddenly the male vampires are inexplicably drawn to her, and Simon is no exception. As they unravel the mystery of Layla’s heritage, an enemy from their past resurfaces and threatens to destroy Simon and all that he cares for.


Another good and intense book in Cassandra's A Moon Virus Series. Embrace The Heat is the second book in the series and I think it has a bit more darkness to it due to some stuff in the story that may have some people cringing a bit, but I found interesting. Layla is a wonderful heroine! She is pretty, spirited and fights when needed. Simon is a gorgeous hero. He is instantly drawn to Layla and can't seem to stay away from her. Especially once she hits twenty-seven. 

Embrace The Heat has some major action, suspense, and plenty of romance. It was REALLY hard to put this story down once I got started. It was well put together and the plot was both intriguing and intense. Cassandra Lawson has a way of writing a book that makes the reader happy to have picked up the story and causes them to have a meltdown afterward because they are DYING for the next one! 

I rate this story an OUTRAGEOUS FIVE SHOOTING STARS! I loved how super addictive the story was and how everything from the romance, passion, and suspense, comes together beautifully for a enchanting and nail-biting read.
