Die for Me (Revenants Series)

Book 1 in the series... granted I think the author had a wonderful idea it did take a while to manifest in the story. Your given all the info, its right there in black and white but it takes awhile to make the magic work in this book. The romance is the really only strong part of the book.

Kate's parents die. Her and her sister are sent to live with their grandparents in Paris. She knows the area because her parents used to visit there all the time to see her grandparents, so that explains her massive knowledge of the shops/cafes. She meets someone, starts dating but because of her heartbreak she wont let herself fall in love just yet. The author goes over her parents death, its brought up several times cause of several things that happen and it gets a little old. If your smart, you know why she's like the way she is. Unless you don't have a heart. She finds out the secrets about her boyfriend and that's what the book is all about - so I won't let Vincents secret out just yet. Gotta read it to figure it out, ohhh wait, for the author just come out and tell ya lol.

Now that I've invested my time with the book, I will try to read the next one.

In the City of Lights, two star-crossed lovers battle a fate that is destined to tear them apart again and again for eternity.

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.

Onto our second cycle of IVF

Well we waited... we got the news we wanted. We were pregnant. But the levels were not rising enough or fast enough and then after vacation, my levels dropped significantly. And they went down to 0. I miscarried on the night of the 6th and let me just say, the nurses did not fully warn me what it would be like. I called the hospital gyno on call and she confirmed it was supposed to be this bad and that I could even come in but I just opted to stay home. Who wants people poking, prodding when your miscarrying. Not me.

Its been a little over a week and I'm starting to think it was a dream we were even pregnant. Except for the maternity clothes I got, it seems like a dream. I need to pack the clothes up just for a couple months so I don't have to look at them each day. It does hit hard when I see them. We were almost there. Further than ever before. Almost 6 weeks. I have hope we'll do great the next round.

Now to just to get the next round in order... biopsy needed, thyroid checked again. Then to bring on a period when they want it. Take a few pills ahead of time and then start the shots up a couple days before the transfer and then do the waiting game again. At least this time its not soo hard on my body. Or on my mind. That 1st round was horrible - emotionally (just shaking my head at that), physically with the shots. Oye!

So if it goes right... August 1st we start Provera to bring on AF, then start pills when I get her, then the shots around the 31st and then the transfer around Sept 4th. A whole month to go but it will go quickly. Amber starts school in August so it will be a whirlwind again in the house.

Wish us luck!!
