Tell Me About It
Sophia Pierce has suffered since her brother left, and is unsure if she will ever get over it. That is until her family decided to move to Wenham, Massachusetts. Her and her siblings have been ordered to protect their little sister, and must return to High school. This is where Sophia finds her soul mate Nathanial and life as she knows it is about to change. As a vampire, Sophia has always kept to herself, but as a high school student will she learn to step out of her comfort zone a little? Sophia has found a best friend in a powerful witch and a love to call her own. That is until something tragic happens and blood is spilled. Will Sophia be able to resist the sweet scent of her beloved's blood?
My Thoughts
When first got a copy of this I thought it would just be about the usual vampires, I am glad to say I was wrong.  Not only are there two types of vampires, but also witches.
Reading Immortal Beloved I sometimes forgot it was about vampires, as its not in your face,  and it let me concentrate  on the budding friendships between the characters, both friendly and romantically.

I loved the family dynamics of the characters, they may not be related to each other as a "real" family, but from reading Immortal Beloved it seems like they are, and they feel like a close knit family, not only thinking of themselves, but also humans with the lifestyle and choices they make.

Reading Immortal Embrace took me on a roller coaster ride of emotions, to loving the family and how they treat Nate, but also making me really dislike a character from the beginning, making me feel something as not right with them, but not able to really pin point it till the evidence was there.  I have never disliked a character in a book so much before and I applaud Charlotte for making me feel like this.
Charlotte's writing has just enough detail, explaining backstory and history as part of the book, but also adding enough descriptive language so we actually get to picture what is happening, but not too much to distract from what is going on.
Immortal Embrace was a page turner from start to finish, and I am so glad I have Forbidden Embrace waiting to be read, as I don't think I could wait to see what happens next.
