Synopsis from Goodreads: 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?
First off, I need to gush about the cover. It's gorgeous! I love the pink/red background, and her dress and hair... I love the swirly bits around the title and the tagline. I just love everything about it.
Kate's parents have died, and now she and her sister have to move in with their grandparents in Paris. I don't really have any idea how she feels, I have no idea what I would do if both my parents died... She's broken, and she doesn't know how she's ever going to feel any better, but then she meets Vincent, and she quickly falls for him.
I loved Kate, she was a very sensible main character. I loved how even though times for her were tough, and even though she did live in hole for some of the book, she managed to recognize the good things in her life and move on, and I admire her strength. She even made some very difficult decisions, ones that even though she wasn't happy about them, she knew they were for her own good, and it was awesome of her. Even if they did make her extremely miserable.
And Vincent. He's cool, but I like Jules. He's funny, and sarcastic... I like him better, but think that Vincent is a better match for Kate. That's all I'm going to say. ;P
The plot was fast paced and unpredictable. A night out may be lovely, or may turn into hell. People aren't who you think they are. I enjoyed every page, and I couldn't stop reading. I read the last half in one sitting, I literally couldn't put it down.
I really enjoyed Die For Me. It's an awesome debut novel from Amy Plum, and I can't wait for anything else she writes, and I'm definitely super excited for the sequel. So, readers, add Die For Me to your wishlist, and you can buy it on May 5th! :D
I give it 5 Feet!
