To gain a chance at heaven, they’ll need to embrace hell…

Descended from Cain, the world’s first murderer, Jax Flynn is destined to spend his life making others suffer. To shield the world from horrific chaos, he was forced to sacrifice the one and only thing he loved. Samantha Merrick.

Sam is special. She doesn’t know how—or why—and she hasn’t had any luck finding out. But there’s a bright side to her life. She finally has Jax back. Sort of. They’re living life on a strict look but don’t touch policy, but with the explosive chemistry between them, keeping their hands to themselves is getting harder every day.

Unfortunately, keeping their libidos in check isn’t Jax and Sam’s biggest problem. When an enemy from the past resurfaces with an ultimatum—complete a simple task or Sam dies—they’re backed into a corner. The goal? Kill a demon called Malphi. The problem? Jax’s demon, Azirak, has no intention of letting that happen…


"The ending was EPIC. By the last few pages I didn't know who was who where Jax was concerned. Heck, I don't even think there was a way to know. After all Jax and Sam have been fighting for that ending was very harsh and undeserved on both their parts." --Nocturnal Predators Reviews

"Accardo does a fantastic job of moving this story forward. There is a lot of action and some sexy bits between Jax and Sammy…I can’t wait for the next book!" --Erin Arkin, Goodreads

"Embraced has pulled me into this series and you are left with that “have to know” feeling. It had captivated me that much. " --Doris, Goodreads

A modern day story of Abel and Cain with a demonic twist. Embraced picked up right where Ruined left. Jax and his twin Chase are descended from Cain and they have a demon attached to them. Chase is hell bent on making Jax life miserable and for that he uses Sam. Jax and Sam has landed thems ...more

This book has given all the other books I will ever read a higher level for me to look forward to. This book is SO close to perfection in my mind that I don't even know what to say. It had the right amount of everything: tension (dirty mind, you can go there), mystery, frust ...more

In this part I liked how Sam embraced her own power and how Jax fought for his own love and accepted his demon, but in the same time didn't hesitate to make his existence present despite his demon's control. ...more

Embraced by Jus Accardo is the second book of The Eternal Balance series and I’m so glad I was able to get a copy of this one. Ever since I finished book one I was wondering what was in store for Jax and Sammy and I have to say, Accardo took me on quite a ride.

If you recall, Jax is descended from C ...more

Jus Accardo is finally back with the second book in her Eternal Balance series.  To say I jumped all over this as soon as I saw this available to read and review would be an understatement.  This is a story that has actually stuck with me after two years!

Jax is descended from Cain, as in th ...more

This is not my usual type of read but I had read Ms. Accardo’s Denazen series, which was also really good by the way. This is book two in the Eternal Balance series and even though I did not read the first book, Ruined, I was able to read this book without missing a beat. Don’t get me wrong; I am de ...more

I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

This series just keeps getting better and crazier and hotter with every turn of the page! Fair warning - this one has a cliffhanger-ish ending that would've driven me bonkers if I didn't have the next book to *immediately* dive into. I ...more

Received on netgalley in exchange for a honest review.

Jax and Sam go through so much in this book. There love for each other is so amazing and everything they do is for each other. They sacrifice so much to be together. We see how special and amazing Jax really is despite the fact he has a demon sha ...more

By Tina March 28, 2016

This series just keeps getting better. Jus Accardo takes the reader on a high action and adrenaline laced adventure starting right where we left off in Ruined, the first of the Eternal Balance series. Everything has been thrown into a type of chaos and the way things ended in the first book sets eve ...more

By Kelly February 24, 2016

This is definitely a darker book. It is good vs. evil with so many twists that I got whiplash! If you haven’t read Ruined first then this won’t make a lot of sense. You need to read it first. Although, I did appreciate the author putting some reminders in my head of some events from the first book!

By Jaclyn April 21, 2016

I love how Accardo doesn't let things be easy for Jax and Sammy. It's almost as if blow after blow comes for them. They think they have a solution to a problem, then WHAM new issue with that. It's serious business they are up against too. You know, the whole death and destruction of the world, hell ...more

Samantha and Jax can’t be together but they are in love. Jax is human but he’s sharing his body with Azirak, a royal demon. In the end of the first book (Ruined), Jax has to sacrified his relation with Sammy to save her.

Sammy is a Pure, we don’t really know what it is, except that everyone want to c ...more

This book picks back up where book 1 ends. This book continues Sam and Jax's story and considering how book 1 ended, I didn’t like Sam and Jax would ever get an HEA. This book is a modern day tale on Cain and Abel's story. In this story, we see our couple trying to recover, get themselves to a place ...more

By Fizza October 23, 2015

It is an interesting paranormal fiction. It's a second book in the series The Eternal Balance. Even though I've not read book one I was still able to enjoy reading this one. It is an interesting story about two demons who are banished to earth and fated to be born again and again in a human body. Th ...more

Embraced is the 2nd installment of the Eternal Balance series. It starts off with Jax and Sam living and working together. Essentially, they're together all the time, and they're extremely attracted to one another. However, because they're not allowed to get too close, life is becoming difficult. It ...more

It has been a long time waiting and I blame life for not knowing that the second book was out! Ruin was such a great book I was so ready for the next.. Sam and Jax are together on paper, but IRL, not so much. One touch or kiss taken too far and all hell will break loose, literally.I found this book ...more

Jax is caught in a no win situation when an enemy from the past forces him to choose between saving the woman who is his everything or protecting the world from chaos. Samantha is facing death if he doesn't kill the demon, Malphi. What can he do? This story is a roller coaster ride filled with suspe ...more

I am so loving all things good vs. evil right now! I enjoyed the first book in this series immensely and was so excited to see that book two was finally out. I sat down and read it in one sitting. I couldn't put it down. I love the relationship between Sammy and Jax. And to be honest, I love Azi too ...more
