Fifty Shades of YA Boys: Day 3 - Vincent - Revenants Series


Welcome to Day 3 of Fifty Shades of YA Boys. Don't miss a single day of this event brought to you by Dark Faerie Tales and Once Upon a Twilight. The event does not stop until July 31st. Each site has their own sets of Hot YA Boys and giveaways to share with everyone. Follow hashtag #FiftyShadesYABoys on twitter. 

Today its all about the dreamy Vincent from Amy Plum's Revenants Series. The Revenants Series consist of Die for Me (#1), Until I Die (#2) and coming next year If I Should Die (#3). If I'm not mistaken Vincent is pretty known in the bookish world. At least I know he is my favorite Revenant. He can probably be yours if your not familiar with him, so sit back and enjoy a little Vincent.

Amy Plum: When I began writing UNTIL I DIE, it had been several months since I had been inside Vincent's head. So I wrote this POV piece to try to connect with him again. It shows Vincent at his most vulnerable - thoughts he only admits to himself. He's not the perfect boyfriend - he has his flaws. But, in my mind, he is a broken hero.
Vincent POV at the beginning of UNTIL I DIE

Kate. She is mine. But she is completely her own. That is one of the things that draws me to her like an insect flitting perilously close to that oh-so-mesmerizing but lethal flame: Kate doesn’t need me. She protects herself against me. She doesn’t want to be consumed, like I am in her.

Kate is everything to me...more important than my own existence. I am obsessed. And not only because I saved her life. Being fixated on the future of one's human rescues is natural for a revenant. But we take steps to avoid that trap. It's dangerous. It's against our code. But in this case it just doesn’t seem wrong.

My kindred might not agree with me, but they wouldn’t dare speak it. My mind is made up. My heart given away. And my body waiting for her to take possession of it.

Although she has agreed to be with me, her promise is contingent on a vow I made—one we both wonder if I can keep. She never speaks about it, but once in a while her eyes flicker to me uncertainly and I know what she is wondering. Can I do it? Can I resist dying, at the cost of my physical comfort and mental stability?

For me it is not a question. It is a requirement. I must find a way to resist death’s powerful enticement. I will not fail. Not only for my own selfish need to have Kate by my side. But for her. I can not hurt her. She has been hurt enough. She deserves a stable life, full of love. And I’ll be damned if I can’t give it to her.

She’s so young. She’s barely seen life. And I can’t help wanting to be the one to show it to her. To see her reactions to each new experience. To see the world through her eyes.

She makes me feel human again. She makes me feel alive, after I was sure that the heart beating in my undead chest had gone completely and permanently numb. She is worth every second of agony that will inevitably come. Because without her, I am a dead man walking.

NOBODY KNOWS I AM: Secretly watching over my murdered girlfriend, Helene's, family.

I WISH I COULD STOP: Pining for Kate. She would be safer if she had never met me.

I'M A SUCKER FOR: Bookish brunettes

A GOOD TIME FOR ME IS: Fight training with my kindred - or even better, real-life fighting with numa. (That's the adrenaline junkie in me talking.)

NOBODY WOULD BELIEVE ME IF THEY SAW ME: Baking macaroons. I know...I don't seem like the type. But Jeanne's taught me to make a mean pastry.

I'D REALLY RATHER: never let Kate out of my sight. But she's independent - totally needs her freedom - and I have lives to save.

THE FIRST THING I DO IN THE MORNING IS: take a quick walk under Kate's window to make sure no numa are stalking her neighborhood


The books are available on Amazon: Die for Me • Until I Die
How great was that? it's not everyday you can be inside the head of a sexy Revenant. Now to celebrate having Vincent visit today, Amy is offering a copy of Until I Die with a signed bookplate. So get ready to enter below and have Vincent come stay with you.

  46. Okay. I admit it... I always go for the bad boy type. (Usually always gets me in BIG trouble, too!) But there is just something about them that is so HOT! I just don't get into the nicey-nice guys (even though I should! and would probably be married now if I did.) Anyway, the nice ones are just too soft, I guess. I dig tattoos and the rugged look. With all that said.. I don't like the bad boys with bad attitudes or that treat their women like dirt.) However, finding one without the other trait is super hard to find.

    Physical features - I totally dig pretty straight white teeth (for the perfect smile) feet and hands. My man must have sexy toes or that could put a really huge damper on things! ;-)

    Thanks so much for this opportunity and I loved the comment question!
