Embrace the Night by Crystal Jordan

Embrace the Night by Crystal Jordan
* I received a copy of this book from Kensington in exchange for an honest review*

Chloe Standish went looking for a one-night stand to erase memories of her cheating ex – and found the hottest sex of her life. A witch and biochemist who’s working on a cure for werewolves, Chloe knows all about magic, yet Merek Kingston evoked a spellbinding lust beyond anything she’d ever felt. But now her ex-boyfriend and research partner is dead, his part of the formula in terrorists’ hands…and the detective in charge is Merek, the same man who’s haunted her dreams ever since their frenzied night together.

Chloe is the one person whose future Merek can’t predict…the only woman who could make him break every rule just to possess her again. Nothing will stop him from protecting her, and an explosive passion too primal, too perfect to forget…

Chloe Standish is a witch that is afraid of the dark.  She lives in the city because it never sleeps, is always bright and she is never alone.  She was raised by her Aunt Millie, a very powerful person in the Magickal community.

Chloe is a witch that specializes in potions.  She’s a Doctor (chemist) that has been working for the Vampire Conclave to develop a serum that would stop a werewolf from changing during the full moon.  She is only one-third of the equation and now she is the only one left.  She is on the run and scared to death, Merek is her only chance and survival and heartache.

Merek still blames himself for the deaths of those close to him.  His abilities won’t let him see the future of those that are important to him.  From the first time he saw Chloe, he knew she was trouble because he couldn’t read her but he couldn’t walk away from her.  Now he has sworn to protect her and Alex, her godson, from the bad guys, without his abilities all he has to rely on is his gut instinct.

Merek, Chloe and Alex set out on the run with a few simple rules, no magic, no electronic toys and no big cities.  Both Chloe and Alex are having problems with these rules but know that they have to abide by them or die.  They pay for cash, don’t stay in one place too long and have to find some place safe for Alex during the full moon.   Everything is going good until they are turned in for a reward and the real fun begins, will they all come out of this alive?

Merek and Chloe are so hot together.  I love how they come to know each other’s little quirks (honey and nightlights) throughout the story.  They are a perfect match for each other whether they know it or not.  He needs someone that understands him and accepts him for who he is and loves him no matter what has happened in the past.  Chloe is terrified of being alone; she needs someone she can depend on to be there for her through everything.  They have found these qualities in each other.

This was a story packed with action on top of the love story.  Merek, Chloe and Alex have to fight for their survival several times but each time, it was imperative for the story to proceed further.  The story includes not only witches but vampires, werewolves, and normals.  The secondary characters add an extra level of depth t the story.

Overall I really enjoyed this story and can’t wait for the next installment in this series to come out.  I give Embrace the Night 4 Flaming Hearts.
