I wish there was only today, just right now, and no forever.It seems fitting that I fell in love in Paris, the most beautiful city in the world. And if I pretend, I can almost believe that my life is normal and everyone I care about is safe. But as long as I’m with Vincent, “normal” doesn’t exist. Gorgeous, charming, and witty, he’s everything you could ask for in a boyfriend—but his destiny is so much more. Even more terrifying than his destiny are his dangerous enemies, enemies who will kill for immortality. How are Vincent and I supposed to be together forever if we’re always in danger?I know I’ll do whatever it takes—even if it means lying to the people I love—to fight against a fate that is trying to tear us apart.
This series has gripped me and got me hooked and this book was even better than the first one. I loved getting back to this world and seeing what these characters were up to. We get back into this story with us dealing with the ending of the first book and I have to say that I loved Kate and Vincent as a couple even more this time around. They work together so well as a team and really lean on each other for support. Kate also has become one of my favorite characters in the book because she is becoming more independent and so much stronger than she was in the previous book. We soon learn that the couple has a major hurdle to get over as they have to once again deal with the Numa.
As the story continues Kate and Vincent try to deal with the Numa issue with the help of two new characters and I have to say that from the start I didn’t care for them at all. I wanted the old group to be together because I loved the way they cared for each other and really were a family. Kate and Vincent also try to come up with solutions to stop Vincent from dying and I have to say it leads them on a path that might not be one they bargained for or planned on. The action was nonstop in this one as always and I had to pick my heart up off the floor a few times along the way. The author was throwing so many twists and turns my way that I couldn’t keep up but I loved them all. I think what I love most about this story is at the heart of it all this is a love story but there is still plenty of action and intrigue mixed in that it doesn’t come across as the typical love story.
Overall this was another amazing installment to this series and after that ending that shredded my heart I am so glad that I have the next book on hand to jump right into. The characters get you so invested in them that you start to love them and hope they will get their happy ending. I think the author did an amazing job of world building because having this level of romance play out in Paris was phenomenal. It was so dreamy and romantic that I got swept up in it all. I highly recommend this series and can’t wait t see how it all ends with the next book.
