I hate book bashing but sometimes you just don't know why a book didn't work for you, the Summary sounded great and I really tried but somewhere in the hours of listening, that dragged on and on, I eventually gave up hope of ever finding the elusive thing that would finally capture my attention.
Immortal Jack is now 170 (but looks and acts 20) he was once a Vicar's son who lost his soul mate Lydia back in 1800 and something and he's been mourning the loss ever since. But when he sees Leah it's like seeing the spitting image of Lydia again. He tries not to get involved but he just can't help himself.... his soul is drawn to her and little did he know hers was calling out for this nameless stranger too. However, he's not the only Immortal and suddenly he's put people's lives in danger just by being their friend.
It should've worked, the writing was very clever but I didn't feel the romance... oh they gave each other pecks on the cheeks or skimmed their lips together but Jack was an old fashioned type of guy who wanted to wait til he had a ring on Leah's finger before taking things further..... so no sex. Only at the very end, when he was willing to give up his immortality to save her was there any real action and danger, yes there was mystery as this was a whole new concept of Immortals but nothing stood out for me.
Told from Jack's POV by a narrator who made it very difficult to follow who was talking and couldn't really do female voices.
Worth a credit? No, this is not a listen that's grabbed me in any way so I won't be following it even with the teaser of an Epilogue.

definitely a good book if you like books on immortals and not too many exciting moments to wow you. the robbery scene starts off the book with a bang but then it can drag at times! i loved that lydia and jack find eachother as they are soulmates afterall! overall a good love story! i was given a copy of this audiobook for free at my request and voluntarily left this review!
