On to the review…
The Immortal Who Loved Me starts with an exciting scene that grabbed my attention. I got hooked into the story, especially to see if Sherry and Basil were really life mates. Normally, I am not into stories that focus on life mates, soul mates, destined mates, or any other kind of mates. But, in this book the concept was actually interesting and made sense to me because life mates are determined more by compatible energy than by some predetermined or predestined force.
I liked how the romance didn’t just happen automatically. The characters actually took time to learn things about one another. However, this development slowed the pace. After the first chapter that had lots of danger, not much else happens besides talking and kissing until around the halfway point in the book.
From that point on, the pace picked back up; there was less talking and more action. Towards the end, I was glued to the pages because surprises kept coming and I wanted to see what else was going to happen that I might not have expected.
I also liked how Lynsay Sands slips some humor into the love story now and then. I laughed out loud in a few places.
Overall, I thought this was a great book. Just don’t expect lots of action. If you are in it for the romance and some hot sex, this is definitely a book you should check out.
I recommend it to readers who like well-developed characters, lots of dialogue, sexy vampires, and/or stories about mates who actually have a choice about being together.
