Description/Synopsis:

For almost a century, Ildaria Garcia has been on the run, a trouble magnet with a knack for taking down bad guys. Lately, her vigilante tendencies have drawn unwelcome attention to her fellow Immortals. Forced to relocate, Ildaria is supposed to lay low in a new town. Instead, she quickly entangles herself with six and a half feet of muscular, tattooed trouble.

Joshua James Simpson Guiscard, aka G.G., knows a lot about Immortals—enough to make him wary. Yet from the moment Ildaria walks into his club, he feels desire stronger than anything he’s known. Accepting the fact that they might be life mates is disconcerting. But when her past catches up to them, G.G. faces a choice—confront his demons at last, or lose a passion that’s hot as hell.

WARNING – SPOILERS MAY ENSUE BEYOND THIS POINT – REVIEW BELOW

I wanted to like Immortal Angel by Lynsay Sands. I’ve heard so much praise for the author’s work, and the genre was right up my alley, so I was excited to dive in as a reader new to this particular author… but to be honest, I was underwhelmed.
 
By the third chapter, not a lot had happened. The entirety of Chapter 2 was spent squandered on small talk in a bar, mostly about a small dog. I like dogs as much as the next girl, but it just wasn’t interesting. I was bored. Though the writing was technically well-written, there was nothing about the story or the characters that gripped me or enticed me to keep reading.
 
Maybe the book gets better… I don’t know. I am of the belief that a book should make you want to continue reading, particularly with a strong start, and this didn’t do that for me. It lacked soul. By the end of chapter three, I lost interest and DNF’d the book. There may be other readers out there that enjoy this book far more than I did. As a new reader, I wasn’t impressed.

Free Fiction Friday #31

Hello ladies and gentlemen of blogland and welcome to Free Fiction Friday #30! For those of you who are new to this blog, or may have missed out on the previous Free Fiction Fridays: Every Friday (okay, almost every Friday—I try) I post an article containing 10 fiction e-books that are 100% FREE on Amazon at the time of posting. (and an additional 5 that are roughly of the same genre and on sale for less than $5) I try my best to make sure they are all 4+ stars with over 40+ reviews and 100 pages minimum if I can (It isn’t always possible)—so that you can get a list of the best-of-the-best to choose from and enjoy over the long weekend (While I do more important things than post… like laundry). I try to switch up the genres every week and this week, our theme is: Paranormal Romance! Enjoy~
