Die For Me by Amy Plum

Summary: (from book jacket) 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?
  Review: This book was definitely an interesting read. Although it was a paranormal romance type story, I thought the paranormal aspects were pretty unique. There were a lot of interesting pieces to the life that Vincent and his friends lived. I liked the fact that I didn't feel like this was a story I had seen before. This paranormal romance had a different kind of challenges to making their relationship work. I thought the plot was a little slow at times. But that was mostly toward the beginning when the rest of the story was being set up. I thought Kate was a very strong character. I really liked her detemination that really showed through in some parts of the book. She is really not your typical mushy paranormal romance girl. Vincent and his friends are really cool characters. I like their attitude toward their job. My favorites are probably Vincent and Jules. they were both really funny and awesome and sweet guys. I think this is supposed to be the first of a series so i will be interested to see what happens there. Overall, this was a pretty good paranormal story.
