I won't lie, but I really struggled with this one. But I continued on and I'm glad I did. It got a bit better towards the end it wasn't as confusing as the first half was. Katie and her sister have lost their parents in a horrible car wreck. So older sister Georgia whisks them off to Paris to live with their grandparents.
Katie is taking the deaths of her parent very hard and just becomes a shell of herself. She doesn't allow herself to have any fun and spends most of the time by herself. She'll either go to a museum, or sit in a cafe all day reading her summer reading books. But one day she catches the eye of a gorgeous guy. He seems mysterious and a bit pissed off.
From there on, he always seems to be where she is, almost as if he or she are stalking each other. But one day, when she is at her favorite cafe. A young girl sitting across from her waves her over, Katie gets up and starts to walk, when a piece of the outside rock wall collapses on the table that she was just sitting at!
After all this happens, she finally get introduced to Vincent, the pissed off looking mysterious guy. And they fall for each other, but wait, he's got a secret and of course, she finds out about said secret, his "family" is not too happy that a mundane, oh, wait, wrong story, human has infiltrated their home.
I'm not going to give away plot points, but I felt as if I read this before. Or something similar. Gorgeous girl, Gorgeous guy, fall in love, shouldn't be together, but can't stay away from each other. Give me something different! Ohh, I'm ranting! Anyway, it's a 3 parasol for me. I enjoyed it enough.
