Gone are the days of police patrol. With ten hours to go before completing her job shadowing project, seventeen-year-old Julie Little’s assignment has switched gears, and now she’s required to start living the lifestyle of every man (and woman) in uniform. Under Luke’s command, Julie is obligated to complete her remaining hours through early morning exercise training.
And despite her distaste for physical exertion, Julie’s crush on her mentor continues to grow by leaps and bounds with each passing day. And just when she’s certain that she’s making progress in her relationship with Luke, Julie learns that the new guy in town has taken an interest in winning her heart… and as far as she’s concerned, there’s only room in her heart for one man… even if he still hasn’t figured out that they’re meant to be.
In Just a Little Embrace Luke show's he has mix feelings towards Julie. He has a war with himself and it's easy to see that Julie has caught his interest but he knows that he shouldn't cross that line. Yet Julie won't let him walk away so easily and I don't blame her, he's confusing her and boys can be annoying that way. So she's constantly trying to figure out if he's into her or not.
Along the way, new neighbors have moved in and we find out their history falls into Julies past. When I found out my jaw dropped and that twist gave this book such an amazing tone, so much depth, I couldn't stop reading! Julie knew there was something fishy when the sister (of the neighbors) was all over her cousin Matt, in just a matter of seconds.
Now I like this new element in the storyline, however, it brings another boy in Julies life....So commence love triangle....Though Julie's heart is only for one man and she's willing to fight for him no matter how hard he tries to push away. But that new boy is going to try to win her heart anyway and sometimes it gets tiring when you fall in love with one guy and then the author brings in another and you're like, come on! haha
But overall I really enjoyed this! And oh my god, that ending tho! I was dying to find out after it ended like that!! Definitely have you on the edge of your seat! If I didn't have the third installment I would have seriously died after reading that cliffhanger! Seriously!
Sweet Readings Everybody!
