Die for Me by Amy Plum
In the City of Lights, two star-crossed lovers battle a fate that is destined to tear them apart again and again for eternity.
When Kate Mercier’s parents die in a tragic car accident, she leaves her life–and memories–behind to live with her grandparents in Paris. For Kate, the only way to survive her pain is escaping into the world of books and Parisian art. Until she meets Vincent.
Mysterious, charming, and devastatingly handsome, Vincent threatens to melt the ice around Kate’s guarded heart with just his smile. As she begins to fall in love with Vincent, Kate discovers that he’s a revenant–an undead being whose fate forces him to sacrifice himself over and over again to save the lives of others. Vincent and those like him are bound in a centuries-old war against a group of evil revenants who exist only to murder and betray. Kate soon realizes that if she follows her heart, she may never be safe again. From Goodreads.
Now this book makes me feel like I am actually in Paris throughout it. I love the details that Amy puts into it. There are so many places that I would like to go that are mentioned in the book. I know Kate has a rough time throughout most of the book because she has to deal with living a life or just doing the motions of living. I am really glad that she chose to live; she deserves to be happy and loved.
I love her social butterfly of a sister, Georgia. She is not only a nice person but she cares more about her sister having fun then of herself having fun. Which she has fun anyways, because she is that type of person that will always make the most of the situation. Their relationship is really special because even though they have their grandparents, they really only have each other left out of their family.
Now Vincent, not only is he hot but he’s caring and willing to put up with some of Kate’s bad decisions. Most guys wouldn’t wait around for the girl to realize the mistake, but he did and he made sure to give her the space she needed to figure it out. His family of course couldn’t or wouldn’t give it to her, why? Because the care a lot about Vincent.
Of course the bad guy was a horrible person who used poor Georgia to gain access to Vincent body when he was dormant. Of course Lucien was a little surprised to learn that Kate wasn’t willing to just let him kill Vincent. I know I wouldn’t just let someone kill my boyfriend because of some crazy vendetta.
I know I haven’t said anything about the other characters in the book but if I had to pick my favorite I would be hard-pressed too. I really enjoyed Ambrose and Jules, especially with their flirting not only with Kate but with Georgia too. I also liked Charlotte too, she was so nice and I loved the friendship that bloomed with Kate almost immediately between them. Her Mamie and Papy were also very lovable, they care so much about them that will do just about anything to make sure that they are happy now.
I give it 5 out of 5 stars. Now onto the second of the series!
