Review: My Soul Immortal

Jack is an immortal and after stopping a robbery, he once again needs to move to another place, so his immortality may be kept a secret. After he moves, he sees a woman which he believes is the reincarnation of his soul mate. 
Leah Winters is a twin-like of his long lost love. As he bonds with her, danger catches them. Will their love find a way to survive this time around?

You should read My Soul Immortal  because it has  great world built. The author creatively makes the main character chooses his location randomly in a very unique way. She also meshes together present time within Jack's historical mannerisms, creating an interesting combination.

Another good reason to read this book is because Ms. Print develops from the beginning of the book a great mystery by not letting the reader no  what type of paranormal creature Jack is. It instigates readers from the beginning of the story and when it's finally explained it doesn't disappoint at all. The author's explanation is  very clever and romantic. It  helps the couple's love story shines even brighter.

Finally, you should read this book because this story has so many twists and turns, that you will feel compelled to keep on reading until you find answers to all of your questions. Even though the book has a continuation, it has a pretty good ending for the first book of a series.

What don't work so well in this story are the long mythological explanations, that confuses and slow the pace of the book some. Also, Jack's angst and negative feelings are a bit exaggerated in my opinion.

I would recommend this book to all paranormal readers that are looking for something new and exciting.

I will definitely be reading book two of the series.

Would like a hot cowboy for a weekend of fun? What about four hot cowboys at the same time? Rachael Morgan get that and more. 

"...That's what being in a ménage relationship means honey. It means we're one unit, not individual couples."

Ms. King sets the readers on fire with Weekend Surrender. This book is a fast-paced read, with a good world built and amazing characters. It has great intensity growth and at the end the reader wants more.

Rachael Morgan is a young lady that has been hurt one too many times and has decide to keep her distance from meaningful relationships. Even though she has some issues to get over with, she is very easy to love, connect and understand.

The Brook brothers are perfect. Each of them has a different personality making them unique on their own. The first moment I read the blurb I thought with myself "that's one too many in this equation". Well, Ms. King, has change my mind. Rachael is extremely lucky and sometimes good things DO come in quantities. 

The passionate scenes are beyond hot, and its description is extremely sensuous, but never vulgar. 

I'm really looking forward to the entire trilogy and Ms. King has definitely been added to my to-read books.

I would recommend this book to all ménage readers out there. If you like threesome, a "fivesome" will be as wonderful or even better!

"A ménage relationship protects our woman from being completely alone. If something tragic were to happen to one of us, there would be three of us left behind to help console her and make sure she was still loved and protected."

Could you have a no-strings-attached relationship with someone that you have really loved before? Do you  believe love can become hate? Would you willingly gamble your heart again? 

Aria and Tristan were in love with each other on their senior year of high school, but fate decided to change their destiny and they started hating each other. Now they are both back in town and their chemistry is still off-the-charts. They decide on a no-strings-attached relationship, but as in the past, fate  is always messing up their plans.

"One day a week. Four days each month. Fifty-two goddamn times each year. On the other three-hundred-fourteen days, we could go back to business as usual."

A relationship based on sexual chemistry, no worries, no troubles, only releasing tension.  The only problem is that life is usually messier than this.

Aria is starting a new life, she has just ended a chapter of her story, and it's looking for new beginnings. Even though she is young her life is not all hearts and flowers.

"So at the ripe old age of twenty-one - when most girls are in school, going to parties, and sowing their oats - I'm going home to rebuild my life after my failed marriage, while caring for a toddler on my own."

She is a good character. She takes the bumps that life has thrown her way and learns from them, evolves. Her relationship with her mom is touching and her love for her son is beautiful.

Tristan is a great character. He has not evolved so much as Aria. He still holds a grudge from the past, and he is immature about it. He is a twenty one years old boy that likes women and pleasure. He is kinky and hot! His humor is perfect, I laughed a lot with him. He is no hero, but his humanity it's what makes him super.

"Yep, in the spam of ten minutes, I've gone from Magic Mike to Jonah Hill."
"I want you spread across my bed, or up against the wall, or bent over my kitchen table. I'm not picky about where, and we already know when." 

This is my first book by Ms. James, but definitely it's not my last. I've really enjoyed her writing style. I love dual-first-person-pov, and for Wednesday it was the perfect way to set the pace of the story.  Her passionate scenes are panty-wetter hot, and the intensity and humor of the book was very well balanced throughout the story.

I have really enjoyed the end of this book. It's so realistic, and it breaks the mold of HEAs.  

I would recommend this book for those erotic romance readers that want to venture into the new adult with spicy. It's new, it's different, it's unique!

"We've finally moved beyond a critical state to stable condition."
