This book had me feeling nostalgic for the days when men treated women like ladies. Thanks for putting into words, the dreams I've always had about how relationships should be

HASH(0xb32d645c) out of 5 stars Team Evan!!! Sept. 28 2013
By Yvette - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I've never been a huge fan of love triangles, mostly because the constant back-and-forth between the characters involved stresses me out, but also because someone inevitably gets hurt. Even though I thoroughly enjoyed the book, reading S.E. Hall's Emerge (Evolve Series #1) was particularly nerve-racking because protagonist Laney Walker was caught in the middle of two near-perfect guys, Dane Kendrick and Evan Allen. If there was ever a character that got the raw end of the real, it would be Evan, a.k.a. the odd man out, a.k.a. one of the sweetest and most romantic fictional heroes ever to be imagined. Luckily, Evan gets another chance at happiness in book two of the Evolve Series, Embrace, with an unexpected new love interest.

I was resolutely Team Evan while reading Emerge, so I was happy to spend more time getting to know him. While the love triangle may have been resolved, the aftereffects are still resonating with the trio. Embrace is about Evan reevaluating his relationship with Laney and figuring out how to move on with Laney being a constant presence in his life. I loved the multi-narrator format, which interwove Laney and Dane's narratives with Evan's story. S.E. Hall is as comfortable writing from a male perspective as she is writing a female point-of-view, voicing both the romantic hero and unabashed womanizer with the same level of genuineness and conviction.

As much as I love the romantic connections between the different couples, it's the friendships between the core group of characters fondly referred to as "the Crew" that's the heart of the series. There's a certain level of comfort and familiarity with all of the characters and, as a reader, I enjoyed getting drawn in to the endlessly entertaining and close-knit pack of friends. Each character is memorable in his/her way, with distinct personalities that energize the narrative. Without the fierce loyalty and camaraderie between the Crew, the story wouldn't be the same, because the characters are such a vital part of each other's lives.

Embrace is my favorite type of book - a good amount of romance, and only mild amount of angst. It seems like all the books I've read lately have been incredibly intense and gut-wrenching, so it was refreshing to read a story that was charming and emotionally satisfying, without being overwhelming. Aside from a bit of drama every now and then, Embrace is a light-hearted, fun, and shamelessly sweet romance. The absolute best part of the book, though, was reading Sawyer's epilogue. I had plenty of reasons to smile while reading Embrace, but I was absolutely ecstatic by the prospect of Sawyer getting his own book and being able to spend more time with these characters in the third book in the Evolve series.

HASH(0xb32d66a8) out of 5 stars 4.5 sweet stars Sept. 27 2013
By K. Bias - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
Do not read if you have not read Emerge as this review contains spoilers for the first book.

(quote)Maybe your true self only thrives in the accompaniment of the one made to bring it out in you.

This book begins right after the dramatic conclusion of Emerge. Evan is angry, lost and heartbroken since Laney chose Dane. He gave up his scholarship and life to move to win Laney back and lost.

As Evan begins making friends, he and Laney have to try to get past the hurt to regain their friendship but it is not a quick or easy process. And along the way Even meets a girl who just seems to fit with him, even if she is an unlikely choice. I have to say I would have never guessed who he would develop a connection with. But their pasts have similarities and they surprisingly just kind of click.

"I don't want to be an underdog anymore, do you?...That settles it. We are now opposites of underdogs. We are--We're overcats!"

I loved Evan in the first book and continued to do so throughout this one. Evan is a good guy who has been devastated. But he really just wants to love and be loved. He tries to date and move on. But he finds he is really attracted to one girl, but they have become friends, and he does not want to go down that road again. But she is supportive, fun, sweet, and always there for him. I was surprised how much I really liked her. They really did have a connection, an understanding of each other, and complimenting personalities. But Evan is unsure of what would be worse...not making a move or making one and being rejected again.

"Well, you bring out the best in me."
"Right back atcha, pretty girl."

Will he take a chance on love again or let her slip through his fingers?

It is a story of moving on, second chances, and healing. It was heartbreaking, sweet, romantic, and inspiring. But this is not just Evan's story. We also get more with Laney and Dane's story as well. They still have some challenges to face together. I really do like them as a couple. Sawyer, in all his glory, is also a big part of this book. And Tate, Zach, Bennett, Avery, Kirby, and Parker are all involved as well. I really love this crew of characters. The stories are about the couples, but also about their friendships. They are humorous, protective, and provide unwavering support. I cannot wait for Sawyer's story. He totally cracks me up, and he has a big heart even though he hides it under a foul-mouthed playboy exterior.

"One of these days some girl's gonna snag ya and knock ya on your a**. This way, you'll be ready."
"You start drinking without me? No woman will ever tame me, or send me on f***ing errands or tampon runs and bulls***. That chick doesn't exist. It's different doing it for Gidge, she's my buddy."

We get a little glimpse of his ongoing story at the end of this book and I am already intrigued.

HASH(0xb32d68e8) out of 5 stars Didn't think I could fall in love with Evan even more... Sept. 30 2013
By Trish Santos - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
I love Evan Mitchell Allen SO FREAKING MUCH. My heart was breaking for him at the shocking ending of Emerge. I was wailing. I didn’t think I knew who I loved more, Dane or Evan, while actually reading the emotional rollercoaster that is Emerge. But, with that ending I knew I was whole-heartedly Team Evan. How could I not be? In Emerge, he was the sweet-talking, creative nicknaming, caring, sexy, gentleman who was always there for Laney no matter what. In Embrace, we get to see lots more of this man who gave up everything to try to win his girl back only to be too late *sobs*.

Embrace alternates between Evan, Laney, and Dane’s POVs. Yes, I said Dane. For all of you who are worried that because this is Evan’s book we don’t get to see any Dane and Laney, you are DEAD WRONG. Initially, I didn’t agree with the POV choices. I wanted it to be Evan, Laney, and Ev’s new girl. However, I know there are way too many Dane fans out there, and on the third read I accepted it and moved it to my favorites shelf. Evan gave up everything to be with Laney only to have it thrown back in his face *sniffle*, so Embrace is his journey of accepting that everything happens for a reason. He had been “in love” with his best friend for years, and now that’s gone, he has to find something (or someone). to make him smile every day. And the real kicker? He happens to become friends with Laney’s friends, which puts them in close proximity of each other. It’s hard to move on when the reason you’ve been kicked down is always near you.

Anyway, Ev is strong though. He goes through the motions. He lets Sawyer drag him around and try to cheer him up. (Sawyer is hysterical by the way, and he gets his book next. Which, I’m really looking forward to.) But, it’s not until he meets a certain someone that he finds the true reason he ended up at Southern. Now, I’m not going to tell you who it is actually. If I had known, I might have refused to read the book. Actually, I initially threw a fit to S.E. Hall once I figured out who she was pairing up with Evan. BUT, S.E. Hall proved her awesome, amazing, fanfreakingtastic writing skills to me because I was dying for them to get together after the first night they hang out. It’s. That. Good. The two of them were making me giggle. They were way too freaking cute. The buildup to them actually getting together was deliciously angsty. Not to mention funny. Since he’s a guy Ev went on a series of AWFUL but highly entertaining blind dates while in denial of his feelings for her. She grew on me fast. My initial opinion of her couldn’t have been more wrong. She was so sweet and bubbly, She didn’t have the perfect life, yet she was always smiling, humming, and most importantly, making Ev happy. She was everything my Evan deserved. His journey to healing wouldn’t have been complete without her.

Because it’s hard to write a review without spoiling who he ends up with or the majority of the plot, I’ll just gush about some of my favorite parts/aspects of Embrace, It’s Evan’s book. Insta-love. S.E. Hall was able to make me fall in love with someone I initially hated. And I ended up dying for them to get together. The Crew is such a fun group of people that I wish I could be a part of. There’s a nice Laney and Dane story in the background. Which leads to my name is in the book. This book evokes a wide-range of emotion. Everything from highly amusing to heart-warming. There were some unexpected events that took place that kept me on my toes.It’s a relatable, realistic story. Evan is so sweet.Evan is hot.Evan is good with words. Evan calls her “Hummingbird”. I just love Evan, obviously.

I was so happy with the way the story ended. I had no idea what to expect when I agreed to beta read for Embrace, but I can’t believe everything turned out so perfect and amazing for Ev. There was not a boring moment. This is a captivating, light-read about growing up and finding love. You need to be touched by the magic of this book! Besides, don’t you want to know who the girl is? I absolutely cannot wait for Sawyer’s book. It’s obvious that he has a troubled past and he is such a comical character that I want to know what goes on inside his head. The epilogue is in his POV and leaves a lot to be desired. Until then…

“Will it always be this good, Evan? I love you so much, everything feels perfect; surely it can’t stay like this forever.”
“Nope, it’ll get better.”

I loved this book for so many reasons...but mostly because Evan needed and deserved his HEA!
You must read the first book in the series first...it's a must! I cried reading this book and at the end I felt so good, it's such a feel good journey! I can't wait for Book 3 and after you read Embrace you won't be able to either!

HASH(0xb32d69fc) out of 5 stars Disappointed to say the least Nov. 8 2013
By Michele - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Okay, this is my first time writing a review and it has taken me more than a month to do so. I was THAT frustrated with this book. I loved the first book but this one made my blood boil. How do you completely change the characters personalities? Dismissing everything we(as readers) have connected with. First, I hate Whitley. She goes from a snobby, vindictive bi$$ch in the first book to a misunderstood, innocent and virginal girl in this one. At the same time, Laney is made out to be the vindictive, insensitive and pushy bi$$h. Really? Evan...how do you not fight for a love you've had your entire life and instead fall even more in love with a girl you just meet? I love the crew but for them to just accept both Whitley and Evan with open arms makes no sense to me!!
Scenes that drove me crazy:
Tattoo
Kitchen and bedroom scene with Whitley and Laney
The whole trip with saw, whit and Evan
The romantic gesture from Evan
Parker

The list could go on forever. The character development didn't make sense to me. Laney changed from being a caring individual to a girl so in love that she disregards everything and everyone important to her. Ie: Parker, her dad
Evan turns into a jerk and weakling.

If you were team Dane this book might be for you. I wasn't team anything, I just couldn't get past the characters ever changing personalities.
