Blurb from Goodreads:
Love never dies...but it can kill.
Ember is the story of Max Valentine, a teenager with secret abilities and many inner demons. His life revolves around music and his love for it. When his father dies he seeks answers with his last living relative, his fathers brother Frank. Frank lives on the island of Maui and eagerly takes Max in as his own. Max soon learns that healing his past will be more difficult than he could have ever believed. Two major complications will tempt and torment him as he tries to make sense of his abilities.
The first temptation comes in the form of a mysterious island girl. Asia Lyn Michaels is rich, spoiled, angry and beautiful. Her path crosses with Max on the beach one afternoon, forever changing both of their lives. Max saves her life and she discovers his secret. From that moment on they are connected, no matter how much they fight it.
The second temptation will test Max’s very soul. Samantha Ann Summers is sweet, artistic, smart and confident. She will help Max find his smile again and maybe even heal his past mistakes. She is possibly his soul mate and Max will fight that with every fiber of his being.
Max’s temper and indecision with the girls will send in motion events that will cost him dearly. He will test the limits of his powers and the new relationship with his protective uncle. He will gain a powerful love and lose another.
OH MY GOODNESS! WOW! I just finished this book and I've already put Ember in a pile to read again! It was absolutely AMAZING! I cannot wait to read more in this wonderful series. The writing was fantastic and flowed very well. The story just wrapped it's tiny fingers around me and would not let go until I read the last page.
Max is a talented musician with a very unique ability that can be both useful and harmful. He moves to Maui to live with his Uncle after the death of his father. He is a sad young man with a very pain filled past, one that he cannot forgive himself for. He meets Asia on the beach shortly after his arrival. Asia is an angry young woman with secrets of her own. The two of them connect and calm one another. Then there is Sam, she is a friend of his Uncle's. Spending time with her brings a smile to Max's face and love to his heart. Is it possible to love two people at the same time?
