For Lizette, being immortal is not all it’s cracked up to be. Seeking some help in ending her life seemed like a good idea at the time, until she met her therapist, Dr. Colin Brayer. Not only does he make her feels things that she hadn’t felt in years, but he made her want to live for something. If only she could make him understand the loneliness that has plagued her since the 1700′s.
Colin was not at all shocked by Lizette’s story of being an immortal, more so he was intrigued by it and wanted to known more about her. Not only was she shockingly beautiful but the sadness that he saw in her eyes made him want to help her more than anything. Falling for a patient is a big no no, but the heart will want what the heart wants. Can Colin convince Lizette that she should take a chance on him or will Colin be left wondering what if when Lizette is gone from his life?
While I wanted to like this story, since the theme of immortality is something interesting to me, the whole thing just felt like it was missing something for me. The characters were as realistic as they could be given the context of the story, but the naivity of Lizette was annoying by the end, and her inability to grasp just how much her actions were affecting Colin made her too juvenile to like. The sex was probably the best part of the book, and even that was mediocre at best, wasn’t exactly realistic or true to form. I have read several books by Ashlyn Chase in the past and liked her work, hopefully others will like this one better than I did.
