Synopsis:

An endless love, for an endless price.

Jack’s immortality is exposed when he prevents a liquor store heist, forcing him to flee to protect his secret—a secret not even he understands. But when he meets Leah Winters—a mirror image of his decades-lost love, Lydia—his very soul is laid bare. He begins to question his sanity. Is she real, and if so, what does that mean for Jack and his secret?

Jack’s not the only mystery man in town. A stranger named Artagan hints at knowledge Jack is desperate to possess. But can he trust Artagan, or does the dark newcomer harbor deadly secrets of his own?

As Jack’s bond with Leah grows, so does the danger to her life. Jack must discover just how much he is willing to risk in order to save the woman he already lost once.


My Review:
This was a book that I signed up for because it sounded pretty different. I usually don't read too much paranormal and when I do it is usually YA. This is one of the first paranormal adult novels I have read, and it didn't disappoint.

I really liked reading about Jack. He was so old fashioned in so many ways, I couldn't help but love that. He is 170 years old and has someone pretty much begging him to have sex with him and he still holds his morals and wants to wait until he is married. That is a pretty long time to wait and he still keeps the way he was raised.

Leah was also sweet. The way she just took everything in and stayed strong was amazing but it seemed in a way that was believable. I felt like she could be a real person out there, not just someone made up in a book. She had faults, but also had such a wonderful personality I can see why Jack fell in love with her as well.

The romance seemed a little rushed at times, but once you get all the facts it is understandable. The love was there for a long time, the pieces just didn't fit until then. I loved the passion that was between the two of them and the long road they both came down to get there.

The book to me did seem to drag on a little bit. You spend so much time with not much happening and then at the last bit of the book it all happens so fast. I felt like the beginning could have been sped up a little and the ending slowed down a little more. It would have been nice to follow the romance a little more after the action ended. I do believe the book was set up to have a sequel or even more, so I am not too bummed. I am sure there will be more to come and I will get to follow the romance even further.

I wasn't sure how I would really feel about this story, so I was hesitant to finally pick it up, but I am glad I did. It was a great suspense novel with a deep love between two old souls. I loved all the old-fashioned tendencies placed in our present world. There is so much depth in the characters and the idea of the world. It is all very easy to follow and picture as you go from page to page. Anyone out there with a love for paranormal needs to read this book.
