Passion by Lauren Kate
Reviewed by Moirae the fates book reviews
Luce would die for Daniel. And she has. Over and over again. Throughout time, Luce and Daniel have found each other, only to be painfully torn apart: Luce dead, Daniel left broken and alone. But perhaps it doesn’t need to be that way. . . .

Luce is certain that something—or someone—in a past life can help her in her present one. So she begins the most important journey of this lifetime . . . going back eternities to witness firsthand her romances with Daniel . . . and finally unlock the key to making their love last.

Cam and the legions of angels and Outcasts are desperate to catch Luce, but none are as frantic as Daniel. He chases Luce through their shared pasts, terrified of what might happen if she rewrites history.

Because their romance for the ages could go up in flames . . . forever. (Synopsis provided by goodreads)

This is by far my favorite of the books. I loved exploring the past lives of Luce and Daniel. I wish we could have seen more of the live in Tahiti. That chapter was so sweet! One of my favorites had to be the live (and death) in France but I think the most beautiful was the one in Egypt. That whole scene in Egypt was gorgeous.  
The love that Daniel has for Luce is one that every woman dreams of. What I liked most about the book, is Kate actually shows not only Luce but her readers as well just how much Daniel loves her, we see that their love is in fact real and that they choose each other every time. In most love stories, the author just tells us that they love each other and we blindly accept it, but Kate takes the time to prove to us just how deep and pure their love for each other is.
The book had a huge (like Everest sized) twist at the end that I so did not see coming. 
At one point in the book we see Daniel in Paris and I think that scene was one that made me go damn, why can't all men be like that? 
This book was beyond beautiful and I want to read it again right now, and I want to read Rapture now. Such a beautiful love story.
Overall rating ***** 5 out of 5 stars
Cover art I think for me this is my least favorite of the cover art, I wish Luce wasn't facing the camera, it looks a little odd to me next to the others.
Obtained My personal library.
