"My life had always been blissfully, wonderfully normal. But it only took one moment to change everything.Review
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)
Kate and her sister just moved in with their grandparents in Paris. Hoping that they'll get a fresh start after their recent tragedy. But moving on for Kate is not that easy. Every thing reminds her of their parents and the pain of their death.
Just when she slowly starts to go out of her shell, she meets the gorgeous and mysterious Vincent Delacroix. He seems to be good to be perfect and apparently not that human.
When Vincent's secret is revealed, Kate realized that living a life with Vincent in it might mean being reminded of death.
I was not jumping up and down after reading the story. Though it was an interesting story in general.
Kate was tormented by the sudden loss of her parents. She's having a hard time investing emotionally again. Come Vincent whose Identity is complicated but nonetheless made Kate open up again.
There are other interesting characters too like Kate's grandparents and Vincent's "kins." Like Ambrose and Jules are really funny and I really want to know about them. As well as how the others will turn out later on.
Then thelove story aspect somehow reminded of edward and bella in fast forward. Vincent's not trying to kill Kate but he really is all out in showing her his feeling. Then again Paris is not dubbed as the city of love for nothing.
Kate and Vincent's lives were both shaped by death. And their love will help shape their future.
