An endless love, for an endless price.
Jack's immortality is exposed when he prevents a liquor store heist, forcing him to flee to protect his secret - a secret not even he understands. But when he meets Leah Winters - a mirror image of his decades-lost love, Lydia - his very soul is laid bare. He begins to question his sanity. Is she real, and if so, what does that mean for Jack and his secret?
Jack's not the only mystery man in town. A stranger named Artagan hints at knowledge Jack is desperate to possess. But can he trust Artagan, or does the dark newcomer harbor deadly secrets of his own?
As Jack's bond with Leah grows, so does the danger to her life. Jack must discover just how much he is willing to risk in order to save the woman he already lost once.

I love being swept away by a new romance and thankfully Audible's ever growing Library means I get to indulge myself over and over again
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.
