Review: Meant to be Immortal by Lynsay Sands

In the newest Argeneau novel from New York Times bestselling author Lynsay Sands, an immortal barely escapes a raging fire only to kindle a sizzling passion with his potential life mate.

Mac Argeneau knows all too well: immortals can be killed. Not with holy water or silver crosses, but by decapitation or being set on fire. So when Mac’s house bursts into flames—with him inside—he’s sure it was no accident. But who would want to kill a scientist specializing in hematology? There is a silver lining: a blonde investigator appears on the scene and sparks feelings in him that have been dormant for centuries.

CJ Cummings is in town on a special investigation, but she’s been waylaid by the local police to deal with this arson case. The biggest mystery is how this sexy scientist with silvery blue eyes has emerged from a blazing inferno without a burn mark on him. He’s clearly hiding something. Sure, she’d love to see him without his lab coat, but she’s got a job to do—despite his insistence that he needs a bodyguard and…he wants her.

But when a second attempt on their lives puts CJ in harm’s way, it’s Mac who will do anything to safeguard the woman who’s destined to be his life mate.13

One of the best parts of an Argeneau novel is when the boys get together and the ragging begins and hilarity ensues. Meant to be Immortal is no different.

The latest in the Argeneau series, Meant to be Immortal, is a fun ride of hidden identity, mystery, and family hysterics.

Lynsay Sands manages to keep this series fresh and funny. Sands drops us into one ongoing  investigation and gives us a new one with a flaming Immortal. I have to hand it to Mac for his quick thinking and his ability to be patient while hoping to be saved. Holy sugar, I do not think I could have done it. 

The chemistry between CJ and Mac is fun and hot. Her attempt at aloofness is the best part of the story…well until Mac’s family shows up to help him “win” the girl. 

Sands fills the story with lots of action and mystery. There are fun characters thrown in and some crazy situations that CJ ends up being put in because everyone is keeping secrets. Some of the funniest parts of the book is what CJ tries to do to stay away from Mac and the characters who are all “hell no” but for their own reasons.

Sands manages to also add in a serious issue which is not addressed in 99.9% of romance novels. I do not want to give anything away, but the sensitivity in which Sands addresses this issue is astute and emotional. I love that Sands added this important topic into this story.

Meant to be Immortal has it all: romance, humor, action, mystery, and includes a real-life issue that doesn’t drown the story. I loved it.A

I received an ARC of this book and I am writing a review without prejudice and voluntarily.
