Book Reviews - Die for Me by Amy Plum & Embrace by Jessica Shirvington

Ive been doing a bit of reading lately!
The reason being that the books are so good I cant put them down!!!!

I fell inlove with the cover for this book
And then i read the back and thought it would be a good book
and it totally WAS!

"Die for My by Amy Plum"
This is a trilogy.....
And it features yet another Fantasy Fictional Character we are yet to come across
in our Teen Novel Reading!!
It was a brilliant book!
Beautifully written and easy to read
and the story just takes you in and you cant put it down!
The back reads:
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.
I give this book 

It has everything!!!

Next is

"Embrace by Jessica Shirvington" 
Does that name ring a bell to you?
This is the wife of Aussie Olympic Champion Matt Shirvington!

This book will make a brilliant movie!
I hope they make one from it!!

This is a book with similar story lines we have read in the past...
In fact, i kept checking that i hadn't  read it already when i first started.
It started out like other books i have read..
But then things turned around and i found it was quiet an original twist!!!

Violet Eden is dreading her seventeenth birthday dinner. After all, it’s hard to get too excited about the day that marks the anniversary of your mother’s death. The one bright spot is that Lincolnwill be there. Sexy, mature and aloof, he is Violet’s idea of perfection. But why does he seem so reluctant to be anything more than a friend?

After he gives her the world’s most incredible kiss – and then abandons her on her front doorstep – Violet is determined to get some answers. But nothing could have prepared her for Lincoln’s explanation: he is Grigori – part angel and part human – and Violet is his eternal partner.

Without warning, Violet’s world is turned upside down. She never believed in God, let alone angels. But there’s no denying the strange changes in her body ... and her feelings for Lincoln. Suddenly, she can’t stand to be around him. Luckily, Phoenix, an exiled angel, has come into her life. He’s intense and enigmatic, but at least he never lied to her.

As Violet gets caught up in an ancient battle between dark and light, she must choose her path. The wrong choice could cost not only her life, but her eternity...

I so felt for Violet in this book!
Such hard decisions to make and two unbelievable men in her life!
Oh such fantasies!!!

I gave this book 4 starts but only because it started out so familiar...
I totally couldn't put it down though!
Brilliant book!
