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

Jack has lived a long time, after realizing that he was immortal at a young age. Although well over 100 years have passed, he still mourns his lost love who died suddenly, Lydia. Jack can only spend so much time in one place before people will become suspicious of a man who looks twenty years old for extended years, without aging a single day. When he intervenes in a robbery and is supposedly fatally shot, he must move to another location, and he chooses Portland, Maine.

Jack tries to do the right thing and stop a robbery but when he is shot he needs to leave town yet again. During the robbery Jack was shot and since he is immortal those wounds will heal very quickly and give away his secret so again he finds himself moving and starting over.

After heading across the country and beginning to settle in a new town again Jack meets Leah Winters who bares a striking resemblance to the love of Jacks life, Lydia, who died years before. Jack finds himself drawn to Leah
I loved it!! Every aspect. It's exciting, romantic, the plot is riveting and will always lead you to want more, and wonder what's going to happen, how the current situation is's just so good!

Jen Printy is an amazing author. This is the first book Ive read from her. I'm not talking about the plot either, (though that was awesome); I'm talking about her writing. She has a way of writing that sucks the readers right in. When it comes to her descriptions, there's none of that "telling

It's been a while since I've read a good paranormal romance story. In fact, I tend not to read them lately, with the excepcion of Richelle Mead and Cassandra Clare. I decided to read it anyway, because the blurb caught my interest and I liked the book trailer. Thankfully, I wasn't dissapointed in this story.
The fact that was the most appeling to me, was that the story was told from Jack's POV. Having a main male character in this genre is rare and

Will their fated love survive or is it doomed to fail? Read on and find out for yourself.

This was a pretty good paranormal romance that I have decided

This will be a tough one for me. The blurb sounded fantastic, and I looked forward to reading this book. It was really good at the beginning, but then it just dragged on and on, and now that I’m finished I have to say I expected so much more. It’s not about the writing. The writing is excellent, almost perfect – the editors at RAP did their job well. It’s the plot that didn’t grab me until the last few pages. When you are on page 266 of a 310-page MS and it starts getting a bit more interesting, ...more

I read the premise of this book and it sounded interesting and it also looked like the start of a new series and I love books in a series...more time to get in depth in the world and characters. But I just couldn't get into this book at all.

Leah, the heroine, seemed completely fine but unremarkable. She works at a coffee shop and she seems to feel some kind of attraction to the hero. It started to look like Leah was some kind of dist

This writer is extremely talented.
Who or what is Jack, a man who cannot die? Why is he immortal? As a man, he is caring, protective, alone and broken hearted. Over a century before, he lost his soul mate, the love of his life, but then along came this girl, Leah and she looks exactly like his long dead Lydia. There is much more than a physical likeness to his Lydia, there is something within Leah that recognizes Jack. They both harbor secrets that they finally have someone to share them with. Is Fate finally being kind to Jack o ...more

I want to start off saying that I am not a romance fan. When this came up for blog tour, something made me grab it up. It sounded like such a different storyline - and ended up completely surprising me.

Jack has been alive for over 100 years - and not aged physically a day. Not only that, but he heals very quickly and he has no idea why. He loved once - loved completely - and lost her. He has never gotten over this, but when he meets a random stranger, he not only feels things he hasn't felt in a

I haven’t read a whole lot of male leads lately, so I was really excited to read My Soul Immortal. Plus the synopsis was really intriguing.

My Soul Immortal has themes of love, loss and second chances. I absolutely love Jack as a main character. As a reader, I could feel his lonliness. I could feel his longing for death that never comes. He is a strong person, but a person can only take so much and has dealt with all of it over and over as the years go by.

I love the romance in this novel. Part of

I was immediately intrigued by the synopsis, and I couldn't wait to dive into this one. I had no trouble with the narrator, Jack. Sometimes, he came across as distant and a little cold, but it kind of fit his personality. He has immortality, and he's lived a long time. He's seen and done a lot of things in his life, and he doesn't really care about anything. He's just tryin

Let me just say, I've had a phenomenal year of reading GREAT books! So with starting out this review I'm not quite sure how to say this.

Well, I'll start with the positives:

The plot: The whole storyline was super original. Not once have I happened upon a book with a similar storyline. So props there.
Setting: I loved the setting. When I found out this book takes place in Maine AND England I was supe

Thanks to Jen Printy and Red Adapt Publishing for giving me this book to review.

As Jack begins to obsess about Leah, he also starts to question his sanity. When he is approached by the mysterious Artagan who claims to have information about what Jack is.

My Soul Immortal is an urban fantasy about long-lost-love and second chances. It is told from Jack’s point-of-view, an immortal both cursed and gifted with eternal existence. Sadly, he’s lonely, and desperately missing his soulmate, Lydia – a woman who died decades ago.

“Every hero gets the girl, and every villain gets to die. I envy them all.”

When Jack meets a woman named Leah, he sees something familiar in her emerald-green eyes. Could it be possible that Leah is really Lydia, returned to him?

Don't you just love it when you get a book that is completely different from anything you have read before? I know I do, which is why I thoroughly enjoyed this story by Jen Printy. She has set up a world completely different from anything I have read before, with not a vampire or werewolf in sight. Instead, it is a whole new world, most of which you learn from Jack's point of view. This as well makes a nice change, to read it mainly from the male's perspective.

***3.5 STARS ***

This book took a different form of paranormal. Jack is immortal. He has been alive for 170 years. The question is how he became immortal? He can't die, but doesn't know how he came to be that way.

He has lived a life of moving from one place to another. He stopped aging at 20. He tries to have as normal of a life as possible, working odd jobs and keeping a low profile.

He expected to life as he knew it to continue when he moved to Portland, Maine. Instead he found a beautiful woman

This was an amazing book to read and had me with a typical readers dilemma, I wanted to read faster to find out what was going to happen but I also didn't want the book to end.

My Soul Immortal is the story of a man named Jack, who was born with eternal life. The novel is told from Jack's POV, and I absolutely loved being inside his tortured mind. He lost the love of his life, Lydia, over a century ago and lives every day with a broken heart that longs to be reunited with his soul mate.

I sped through this book fairly quickly because it is a very fast paced novel that one could read and finish on a cozy winter weekend. I really enjoyed this story and the entire aspect of the immortality that is discussed and how closely connected Jack and Leah really are. The entire story was full of mystery and intrigue until the very last page that left off on a cliff hanger, leaving me wondering what was going to happen next. The narrative was told in a very proper

They say never judge a book by its cover, and it is so true. If I had just looked at the cover I probably wouldn’t have chosen this book and that would have been a real shame.

This book is brilliant; I just couldn’t put it down. There were points where I was hiding the kindle under my work so I could sneakily read when my boss wasn’t looking! Naughty I know but I was addicted!

This book was really cool.

In the world of literary works, we have often seen many, and i stress the many remakes of the same 'soul-mates' story line. Honestly, at times i feel like running away when i see the word 'soul mate' in a blurb.

However, when the author approached me to review this one, i was intrigued and when i began reading, i knew i made the right decision. I really liked this book.
