After 20 some books the series has had it s up s and down s for me I have my favorites and the not so great ones but this time around I wasn t disappointed and had a marvelous time returning to the Argeneau series I d say this book can be read as a stand a lone or be a starter into the series The Immortal Who Loved Me delivers a new storyline with a little mystery humor and a sweet romance I loved the start Sherry won me over on the very fist page I liked her and liked that she had a good head on her shoulders Stephanie a little girl we have seen pop in and out of the books was a nice addition The poor girl has it ruff I liked her interaction with Sherry and loved her comparing lifemates to pizza when explaining things to Sherry Made me laugh The humor was remarkable in this one I loved the miss pronounce of Basil pronounced Baw zil Took me by surprise and had me smiling Then their was Bricker he was kinda of an ass in this one but boy did he have me laughing when he spit out all the different names for a mans penis Yes their are several names to call a mans penis and that whole scene was hilarious Really you need to read itBasil was adorable He totally screwed up explaining things and had Sherry thinking someone slipped her something until they shared their first kiss and then well she starts to rethink things I loved Basil and Sherry They had several great moments It was ust so much fun reading about these two It was fantastic for me as a fan of the series to see old favorites pop in I Shackletons Journey just love seeing old characters in any storyline show up We finally and I mean finally get closer on Livius one of the bad guys who has been reeking havoc throughout several books I m glad that s done but we still have one bad guy and all of Livius sons to find but part of this plot comes to a closer and I m glad I did have some issues with the book I didn t like how abruptly the ending was We learn that Sherry s paternal grandfather will show up and then the book ends I also wasn t to found of how this book handles consent when we learn some very disturbing things about Sherry s mother s past and who her really father is This was explained by Elvi but how it was explained ya it makes some sense but still it s rape in a form I also felt that Basil and Sherry needed to talk about the kids Basil has had a kid every 100 years with a friend This wasust said and then they move on I can understand where he s coming from living so long but still it s a hard issue to tackle and I felt the author didn t tackle it I wouldn t be able to move on from this very easily Even with the few issues I had I still ended up really liking this book The Immortal Who Loved Me brought me back to what I love about this series A fun loving story filled with characters to fall in love with and humor to keep you laughing Rated 4 Stars This one was exceptionally
"Bad In That It First "in that it First Then Belittled Criticism See Rape And Mind ControlThe acknowledged then belittled criticism See rape and mind controlThe I ll most likely post on While The Immortal Who Loved Me fit the typical Argeneau MO I was in this case severely disappointed by something the author integrated into the story Due to that I feel too biased to review the book in a non personal mannerThat being said I m sure most fans of the series will enjoy the book It sadly doesn t introduce anything innovativenew but it also never promised to do so and to my knowledge fans don t count on anything the like either Regardless I m sure it could be an enjoyable read as long as you don t mind the fact that the issue of mind controlconsentrape that had been criticised by some reviewers in the past was first addressed and then belittled If this is a sensitive topic for you I would personally recommend you skip this title No no no no NO NO NOOOSo wrongview spoilerHero is 3500 years old Had a life mate briefly when he was very young No kids He aged got bored and lonely and wanted kids So he found an immortal friend and has had 26 YES TWENTY SIX kids with this woman The most recent being only 25 Sherry is 32 And since you can only have 1 kid every 100 years that means he has been hooking up with this woman for over 2600 years But it means nothing because they never lived together Yea right Plus it means that Sherry would not be able to have a kid for 75 years hide spoiler Ummmyou know when a book like Clue by Clue just ends Why does that happen What became of the grandparents What about his kids What about their mother What about her dad Too cliffyorust to abrupt Whyyyy And you know that old saying two s company and three s mass murder The bad guy Hey if the bad guy had been this funny the whole time I would have been rooting for him But darn he s only funny in this book and things don t end well for himThis book was a big step up from the last one because there was actual personality to the character The Immortal Who Loved Meby Lynsay SandsI am absolutely flabbergasted If I were talking instead of writing I would be practically speechless We re up to book 21 in the Argeneau series and while Sands has at times struggled to remain fresh and coherent it has still A few hours ago Sherry Carne would have sworn that vampires didn’t exist That’s before rogue immortals rampage through her store leaving bloody chaos literally in their wake The kicker comes when Sherry learns that one of the vamps on the bad.
Read ☆ eBook, PDF or Kindle ePUB Ì Lynsay SandsBoom we are in love forever Even one of the characters brings up the ridiculousness of all these supposedly immortals suddenly finding all these mates I really hope the author didn t bring up Basil s 20 odd kids so she could extend this another 20 odd books And seriously you can t spend 20 plus books talking about how lifemates can t influence each other and then expect me to buy this repeated well maybe this mysterious vampire thinks you re his lifemate thing Hello did you seriously forget that plot connivence that drives every book toward the middle of this one I mean if several characters repeat the can t influence evidence then these same characters discuss whether this other mysterious vampire might think she s his life mate as though it is an actual option Without saying that the vampire would have to be a moron who knew nothing about how lifemates really work I guess I would have Enticed By You (by You, just been left with a ho hum read but then I got the mama was raped part of the storyline which the author immediately retcons into being ok because you know it wasn t rape rape and she really wanted it anyway WHAT THE EVERLOVING FUCK WHY AM I READING THIS SHIT Rape in romance novel is bad enough but the main character literally goes from hating the dude to don t hurt my daddy in two pages of bullshit And the not really rape part makes me so angry Don t fucking bring into the story in the first place if you are going to treat the subject so poorly You want her father to be an actual vampire write it in better DNF50% I was utterly bored by this book It drags and drags on things previously covered on the series such as the origins of the immortals This is probably with intent on making them standalone I get and respect that but way too much page space is used with that purpose It s stunting progression significantly and losing me completely in the process Absolutely nothing of note has happened in the last 3050% The main characters are also not very interesting and I don t feel a connection to them and between them I m not sure if I m willing to try another in the series I loved so many of them but am feeling burnt out on this world and there sust not enough variety any This review is going to be a bit of a mess I Ngôi nhà xưa just finished reading it and I usually take a day or two before I write the reviewust to get everything in perspective Anyways moving alongBasileios Argeneau is a 3538 year old immortal who is now a lawyer I guess he s vampire in than one way get it cause lawyers are considered bloodsuckersno I ll stop He is Lucian and Victor s brother He is said to be bossy stubborn and uite a lot like Lucian which is why they often have arguments and Basil prefers Living In New York Sherry in New York Sherry is the owner of a kitchenware store in Toronto She is also very much a mortal Her mother died a couple of years ago and her father abandoned her after her brothers death when she was a child She is
A Workaholic And Really Wants Her Business To Thrive Whichworkaholic and really wants her business to thrive which why she doesn t many friends or other hobbies Let me start off by saying that for uite a few years I really loved this series it had cool vampires a lot of humor sweet and soft romance with some sexy time but something changed in the last couple of books There was Firing Schedules for Glass - The Kiln Companion just a lot of stuff happening in the book The romance was practically non existence they only met a couple of days and while some books manage to make me think that the protagonists are actually in love after only meeting each other a couple of days this book didn t Also the I love you s came a bit too early for me considering they don t know each other and yes I know they are meant to lifemates and most of the couples in the series had only known each other for a small amount of time as well but those couples atleast spend a lot together and were notust trying to find some immortal criminal or were hiding from some criminal immortal with a whole bunch family members uibbles Apart from the lack of romance Basil had 22 oh sorry 26 children four of which died with another woman who was not his lifemate she was his friend Seriously unless the children were born from in vitro you have to feel something for the woman you have 22 children with Basil said that it was because him and Mary were lonely tired of living and wanted a reason for living fine I could understand that I could even understand having till about 4 children together but 22 Are you kidding meI guess whenever they felt tired of living again they decided to have a child and I think the reason Basil doesn t have children is because of the 1 child per a hundred year rule He says that they don t now and have never lived together how does that work if they both wanted a child and both of them raised them Their youngest child is only 25 years old Sherry is only 32 years old herself and she doesn t have children or is planning to Now she s a step mother to 22 children How can Sherry be okay with that maybe it would have been different if had children with some women and not ust one woman nope I don t think so How can anyone be ok with that is beyond me image erro. Ry and instinct don’t lie They tell him something else too that Sherry’s connection to the immortal world goes deeper than she knows And that she’s in the kind of danger only Basil can save her from if she’ll ust trust him now and forever. .
Een an enjoyable series But this book I had problems with this book Don t even bother reading if you don t want spoilers because that is all I am going to be doing hereThe book starts off kind of novel lots of drama and violence and Stephanie the teen Edentate ie vampire without fangs who isn t crazy from previous books is the heir apparent in finding life mates And this time instead of maneuvering Stephanie is very up front hey vampires are real and this is your life mate this is what a vampire is all of that it is right out in the open Conseuently I think a new reader could actually start here which is unusual for such a long running series Everything was going along fairly smoothly and while Sherry and Basil s chemistry wasn t the best nothing like Basil s bother Lucien and his lifemate Leigh I was enjoying this than the previous couple of books and then we hit the first speed bump the hero Basil has been having babies every 100 years or so over the past 3000 years with a friend of his and as recently 25 years ago Ok that threw me for a loop But he explained and while I was still not precisely thrilled with it I understood his motivations life is boring and they found having children fulfilling So on we went Then we got closer to the end and we started realizing Sherry had been controlled by a vampire her entire life Turns out her father while an effed up drunken immortal 19 year old used mild mind control to convince Sherry s happily married mother to have sex with him Later he found Sherry s mother in a hospital after she tried to kill herself over a pregnancy from an infidelity she couldn t understand and he used mind control on them to try to fix his mistake and he stuck around When Sherry s parents eventually divorced he stepped in as an uncle As Sherry aged he wiped his image from her mind to show back up as her best friend Later he did it again and got her to hire him for her new business And all the while wen she went off the rails so to speak he would control her or wipe her mind to fix things Naturally Sherry was completely devastated and righteously angered But then Elvi who seemed a reasonable and sensible person in her own book turned into a sociopath and explained how what Sherry s sperm donor did was alright because mortal parents would do it if they could and the rape really wasn t that bad because it wasn t a violent violation WTF Then Basha from a previous book also finally had togot to kill her own son Leo who is the true villain of this current story arc And Sherry realized everything is hunky dory and she looks to go rescue her dad from the horrific punishment he is due violent though the punishment was it seemed like an appropriate one to me Sherry and Basil admit their love they find out Sherry s paternal grandfather will be showing up and the book basically ends So basically I am not at all pleased with this book I am not pleased with the way this book handles consent and I am not pleased with this lopped off ending I honestly don t know if I am finished with this series but unless something spectacular is happening in the next book I am doubtful I will continue I am sorry to say but this story has negatively colored the entire series for say but this story has negatively colored the entire series for No rating from me only disappointmentCross posted Basileios is my least favorite Argeneau brother I disliked him even than Jean Claude He was suppose to be like Lucian but he was nothing like him He didn t have Lucian s sense of honor or his strong values for family or his protective instinct Basil is the guy who was in a sexual relationship with a friend and they had 26 kids together considering you are only allowed to have one child every 100
that is a of years to be with someone he spoke about his over 2600 years of being with the friend mother of his 26 children in few sentences and acted as it meant nothing Because according to him we didn t live together but he raised the kids with her and was very much part of their individual lives His youngest child is 25 years oldonly 8 years younger than Sherry That means Sherry can not have a child for the next 75 years I can t believe any women would be ok with hearing her lifemate was spreading his seeds with another woman a woman who was part of his daily life for that many years the mother of his children but the relation wasn t serious enough sorry I don t buy it But the same idiot knew he was in love with Sherry after 5 days while they were either traveling spending time hiding hunting the bad guys being with other couples spending time in bed or eating pizza Yeah Sure There wasn t enough humor and Elvi was very annoying I am not even going to comment about Alexander or Sherry s mom This formula is getting extremely stale It is all so rote by now that you know the heroine will have had the entire vampire life explained to her by third chapter then we know Leo is going to show up and menace then we spend dozens of chapter protecting her in an authoritarian fashion while introducing as many past couples as possible until time to end the book one chapter of plot denouement and then. Guys’ trail may be her life mate Her head says it’s impossible The rest of her takes one look at Basileios Argeneau and has much interesting ideasWhatever Basil expected in a life mate funny outspoken Sherry isn’t it But mind blowing chemist.Years That Is A
