Immortal Ever After is the 18th book in Lynsay Sands’ insanely popular Argeneau series, and a fun, exciting, sexy story! I’ve read more than my fair share of the paranormal romance genre, most especially vampires. I don’t know what it is, but there’s something about these tormented souls that draw me in and keep me coming back for more. It’s not often that I fall in love during my first read of a series, but I fell - and fell hard - for the Argeneau world. This is my first taste of Lynsay Sands’ writing and I was very pleased! This world she’s created is exciting, and the characters are intriguing, compelling, and yeah.... very sexy.

I usually hate coming into a series mid-way because I either end up lost or cringing at the information dump we have to endure. Thankfully, I was neither lost nor cringing because Ms. Sands did a great job of giving us the Argeneau world background without making me feel like I was reading a text book. The story is well written and through dialog between characters – old and new – she imparts everything new readers need to know to feel like we’re part of the story, not just reading about it.

Anders is such a great guy! I can see why everyone loves him, and anyone who’s been anxiously awaiting his story will be very happy! He’s so much fun… open but shy, strong but vulnerable, and not just sexy but super sexy! He’s the kind of vampire I want for my very own!

Valerie is a great heroine. What she’s endured would break most women, but not her. Even though everything she ever thought she knew about the world around her has been turned upside down, she holds it together and does what she has to to survive.

The bottom line: In case you didn’t get it, I really enjoyed this book, and while it was my first experience with Ms. Sands’ Argeneau series, it most certainly will not be my last!

My thanks to Avon Books for providing me with a copy of this story I exchange for an honest review.

The story started out great but quickly got dull. The writing was very elementary and she would break down every minute event like getting water or changing clothes. I could skip full paragraphs because there was so much fluff. Her overuse of the word wryly was extremely annoying since most of the time there was nothing really wry about the character was saying. And the whole story was just simple. There was very little action after she escaped and her relationship with anders had no struggle from start to finish. After being kidnapped by a vampire i would have expected her to be a bit more resistant to anders which would have added some intruig to the story but she barely cared. Overall the story just didnt click.

    Lynsay Sands delivered another solid book with Immortal Ever Aft

    Lynsay Sands delivered another solid book with Immortal Ever After. It didn't blow me away, but it did keep me thoroughly entertained all the way to the end. But, all of the books in the Argeneau Series seem to follow the same format:

    Dramatic Opening Scene where someone is in danger

    Dramatic Rescue

    Discovery of possible life mate

    Suspense over whether said life mate will accept the news about Immortals

    Anxiety while waiting for their decision

    Another possible dramatic event

    Resolution where they live happily ever after

    The story is for the most part good, but it feels like it is following a very strict formula, with little to no surprises thrown in. And something about this book didn't dig deep enough into the two main characters' emotions. I wanted them to end up together, sure. But I wasn't really invested in it like I was with the first several books in this series. Maybe I'm becoming a little bit cynical, but it seems that the last couple of books I have read that are part of a long series seem to leave me wanting more. This book ultimately did that. It was a nice, easy read - kind of like a carefree day at the beach. But I wanted something heavier that had me tied up in knots; anxious over the relationship in question. I recommend it if you have been reading this series because it has certain plot lines that continue on the story of older characters that we know and love. But I won't tell you to move it immediately to the top of your TBR list.

    Gotta love thoes Nanos!

    A fantastic series that while you do not have to read them all in exact order, reading at least a few of the earliery ones from the series is helpful. Each book does well on its own, but yoy do enjoy catching up with the people you meet in earlier books..its a big part of the charm of a series that goes on for so many installments

    "It was cute and a very easy and fast read." ~Under the Covers

    After a few good books in this series, I thought really we were back on track. And by back on track I mean fun, light and sexy. IMMORTAL EVER AFTER was all of those, but a somewhat watered down version of what I was expecting.

    Valerie is a human who was kidnapped by a rogue vampire, kept in cages along with other women for him to feed on, and who recently managed to escape and alert the authorities. In doing so, she alerted Lucian and his enforcers. When they come for cleanup, tough enforcer Anders realizes she's his life mate. Instead of wiping her memory, Lucian brings her to his home to spend time with Anders and see if they can make it work. Meanwhile, the rogue is still running rampant and trying to get his women back.

    First, if you are scared about that big number in the series (#18) don't worry. This can be read as a standalone pretty good. There's somewhat of a disconnect from the rest of the series and only a few cameos by favorites. The one couple that plays a big role are Lucian and Leigh. Leigh was a source of comic relief, especially since she's pregnant and playing matchmaker. That is a job much better done by Marguerite.

    Anders is a sexy and tough alpha who succumbs sweetly to the joys of meeting his life mate. Valerie has an instant attraction to him, which felt like more of a crush at first, but it slowly developed into more. I think the chemistry between these two was great and they were definitely a cute and enjoyable couple. My favorite part was Valerie calling Anders `Semmy'.

    I am starting to feel that maybe this series needs something to shake it up a little bit so that the stories don't start blending in. But other than that it was cute and a very easy and fast read.
