“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.

I get easily distracted by pictures of sexy guys and have tons of book boyfriends.I keep all my alpha males chained to my basement and guard them fiercely.*Back off bitches*I like to see Jason Momoa as a lot of those boyfriends, because ….. mmmmmmm JASON.MOMOA!
I’m a part time graphic designer (yes, everything you see on UTC has been done by me), run my husband's business from home and on a good day I’m a self appointed superwoman (she who can do it all).I love blogging with my girls and I couldn’t do it any other way!My first love is everything paranormal, but in the past few years I’ve re-learned to love contemporary romance.Every once in a while I like to mix things up with a historical romance, a steampunk or an LGBT book.Because I need variety to avoid book slumps.I don’t always need an HEA although I prefer one, and I love authors that can rip my heart out and make me ugly cry.
