My Opinion: this was an interesting read. I really liked the different ways that Vincent’s supernaturalness is described and it was just different. However something that bugged me a little was that it was a little similar to Twilight. For example the way the relationship started out, about how Kate became obsessive about Vincent reminded me of Bella and Edward. But other than that I think that the story was unique.
I really enjoyed the ending. It just worked really well I think. I can’t wait to see what the next one in the series is going to be like. I also really enjoyed the setting. I wonder if the locations in the book are there in Paris. Like the out door market that Vincent showed Kate.
Plus the cover is GORGEOUS! I really like the dress. I think its supposed to be like the one that she gets from Vincent.
Overall I think the story was cute and sweet and a great read.
Overall: 4 out of 5
