Editorial Reviews

From the Author

I wrote UnEmbraceable from my experiences of working with homeless girls, from research I've done on the foster care system and human trafficking here in America, as well as from my own experiences of homelessness. Some may balk at Tamar's intelligence, but I've met some extremely intelligent, savvy and book smart young ladies on the streets.
*
I want to eventually open a safe haven, similar to the one Sophia works at, and a safe house, similar to the one at the end of the story.
*
My hope is for abolition, for restoration, for scars to be mended by Love, and to inspire you, my reader, to love the UnEmbraceable.

From the Back Cover

"Those eyes - like a tempestuous sea in paradise where the riptide, unexpected and thunderous, pulled you under - those blue eyes tugged me into her world. I saw behind them a reluctance to live her life like this. I wanted so badly to protect her from all of it.
I should have known better."

More About the Author

Precarious Yates lives in Texas with husband, daughter, dogs, chickens, sheep and by the time you read this some other exotic creature her husband or daughter has brought home. She had studied the plight of and worked toward the abolition of modern slavery for over a decade before sitting down to write Revelation Special Ops. She was further inspired by the work of her sister-in-law, who helped to found Love146, an organization that works to raise awareness about human trafficking and builds safe homes in vulnerable regions. Yates spent several years overseas as a missionary in Ireland, and also did missions work in India and the Philippines. Her passion for literature has become her means of further educating young adults of the realities of modern slavery, while producing hope through the power of Christ Jesus in us.

There are two main characters in this novel, Tamar and Leonard. Leonard is a good, clean-cut Christian man (someone I could easily fall for!), and Tamar is a prostitute and thief. Yet, God wants Leonard to marry Tamar.
Leonard couldn't stop thinking about her, even though she stole his wallet. She stole more than that, his heart. Tamar couldn't stop thinking about Leonard and how she'd stolen from this man who was nothing but kind to her. They both new they were supposed to be together, but Tamar couldn't bring herself to fully trust that. Who would want a woman like her? How could she heal and let herself love a man?

In Unembraceable, we see just how much pain Tamar has been through. She was abused at a young age. Her mom had died, leaving her without family, and so she had been thrown into foster care. Every foster family had abused her in some way, and eventually she ran away, looking for a way to survive. And that way was through theft and prostitution. Something even more horrible than that happened to her, and it had caused her to be the way she was. It had stripped her dignity, purity, and left her empty. I cried when I read some of the things that she had gone through.

She meets Leonard again, and the two of them hit it off well. He's forgiven her, but she can't forgive herself. The story is about finding forgiveness and letting yourself love. But more than that, it's a statement about how foster care ruins lives by human trafficking, abuse, or kids having to prostitute themselves just to make a living after they run away.

I loved that this had a political feel because now, I want to do something about the terrible situations some girls/boys find themselves in.

Precarious Yates and I met thanks to the World Literary Café where we listed our Facebook pages in their program to connect with other authors. After visiting my page, she saw that I was interested in finding people to review my manuscript, and she offered to do a swap.

I have to admit, I haven't read a Christian romance in a really long time. I was actually a bit hesitant to read this one when I realized it was a Christian book, not because religion bothers me--my own novel is all about religion, but because so many of the Christian romance books I read growing up tended to drag. With four kids and my own writing to conquer, I simply don't have time for books that drag.

I was pleasantly surprised when I began reading UnEmbraceable. The story moved along at a lightning fast pace. I picked it up and didn't put it down unless I was forced to. I started yesterday afternoon and finished before lunchtime. Precarious Yates did a wonderful job moving from one important event to the next, keeping my attention quite well.

When Leonard first meets Tamar, he's shocked to hear God tell him he's supposed to marry her.

"Shameless thief, homeless harlot, damaged goods," (pg 9) is how Tamar views herself. Although she's broken, she still has some ties to decency. For instance, even though she lives in a tent, she carries around paperback copies of Les Miserables and Crime and Punishment, and keeps Chopin's Raindrop Prelude on her iPod. Underneath the dark eyeliner, black leather dress, and chunky heels is a young girl desperately longing for stability, and to be honored, loved and respected by a man like Leonard whom she meets in the city and then later steals thousands of dollars from.

UnEmbraceable is a contemporary novel somewhat akin to the Biblical account of Hosea and Gomer. The engaging characters come across as real, with their vivid paths from opposite corners intertwining into a journey that is both painful and joyful, ultimately leading to something new (it’s never too late for fresh starts). The raw, unrelenting forgiveness in this story is the kind Jesus conveys – and that the author, Precarious Yates, has succeeded in expressing through a beautiful and unique style. She handles the issues of human trafficking and prostitution with delicacy. This is one of those rare romances with substance. My kind of romance! How the author incorporated zombies (yes, zombies) into the plot, which develops into a kind of end-times scenario, is distinct. The well-formed finish left me with a lingering bouquet of the author’s heart for others (deep), love for the Lord (vast), and her talent with words (sharp). Striking cover, too. An all-around book.

I'm not typically huge into inspirational novels, but after reading a few books by Precarious, I am really appreciating the author's ability to provide spiritual insights for tough topics and make them relatable to teens. I was immediately won over in the beginning by Tamar's raw emotion and vulnerability in reaction to the lifestyle she felt trapped in. It felt very real and gritty, which I feel is all too often glossed over in most Christian novels.

I love the arc of redemption and grace and how the author presented it realistically as not an easy road to travel (but well worth it), all while writing a confoundedly beautiful love story. One of the aspects I didn't fully grasp was the frequent use of the "bridal paradigm", which can be tricky to present to those unfamiliar with the concept, but I felt I understood it better in this book than in the Special Revelation Ops series, where I felt it was overwhelming and a little overused. However, I also love how this story dovetails with the Special Revelation Ops story arc and has some characters crossover into Unembracable. The only other aspect I would have loved to have seen expounded more on was of the zombies themselves and the conflict they were to bring to the story. I felt like they were somewhat of an add on, and the violence with them was more implied than depicted, but understandably, it is a YA novel, so what was implied was appropriate for sensitive readers.

So all in all, if you have a teen that enjoys supernatural romance novels like Twilight, they may also enjoy the complicated and redeeming romance of Tamar and Leonardo, and get a good glimpse of the deeply profound grace and love that God has for those that are hurting and broken, and that restoration and redemption is possible in any circumstance.
