My life had always been blissfully, wonderfully normal. But it only took one moment to change everything.
Suddenly, my sister, Georgia, and I were orphans. We put our lives into storage and moved to Paris to live with my grandparents. And I knew my shattered heart, my shattered life, would never feel normal again. Then I met Vincent.
Mysterious, sexy, and unnervingly charming, Vincent Delacroix appeared out of nowhere and swept me off my feet. Just like that, I was in danger of losing my heart all over again. But I was ready to let it happen.
Of course, nothing is ever that easy. Because Vincent is no normal human. He has a terrifying destiny, one that puts his life at risk every day. He also has enemies . . . immortal, murderous enemies who are determined to destroy him and all of his kind.
While I'm fighting to piece together the remnants of my life, can I risk putting my heart—as well as my life and my family's—in jeopardy for a chance at love? Goodreads.com
Die for Me - After the death of her parents, Kate and her sister move to Paris, France to live with their grandparents, in hopes of starting a new life for themselves. Kate doesn’t want anything to do with friends or boys, until she meets the charming Vincent, who makes her feel alive again. But Vincent also has a secret, and Kate must decide if he’s worth risking her heart over.
Wow, this book was really great! The story and characters had me hooked from the beginning, and I had a really hard time putting the book down. It’s definitely a book that will be added to my collection.
The story is absolutely fascinating, and not really what I was expecting. I really connected with the main character, her pain and grief. But she was strong and determined, and while she was grieving, she didn’t totally give up hope. Vincent wasn’t the perfect ‘hero’, by far. But he really cared for Kate, even when he was torn about having her in his world. The secondary characters were well written as well. Jules and Ambrose were really funny, I found myself laughing at them more often than not.
The plot is fast paced and interesting. The writing and descriptions were well written and beautifully described. The ending left me satisfied, but I’m also anxiously looking forward to the next book in the series, coming out next year!
