I think I’m a little obsessed with this book. I don’t know why I didn’t have this on my original list of twelve books for the DAC. I totally fell in love with the cover of Die for Me the second I saw it and I would have purchased it for the cover alone.
But even with the cover that existed when I first discovered this book I still was desperate to read it. I’m a bit of a sucker for books where people are willing to risk their lives for love and Die for Me sounds like it might just be one of those books.
And all the romantic in me has to say about the tagline – Would you risk your life for love? – is heck yes!
I have not read any reviews or looked at any ratings for this (which is why I don’t have the Goodreads description below) as I want to completely discover this book without a little help from the web. I want my discovery to be my own and then worry about what everyone else has to say.
I have this book as an eARC, but I’ve also traded for a printed ARC and of course have this on pre-order – see what I mean about being a little obsessed? I just wish I had the time to read this now rather than having to wait a couple more weeks.
So, even if May 10th wasn’t as quiet a day for releases, this would still have been my top choice for this spotlight post.
The author has a peek at the cut prologue from this book on her website, HERE.
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?
