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.
