Meant to Be Immortal (But is she really meant for it?)

**I received the this book through NetGalley in exchange for my honest review.**


I quite enjoyed this slow-burn vampire romance. Mac and CJ built a relationship before they acted upon their attraction for each other, which I liked. I would definitely not consider this romance novel an insta-love story. They first mutually respected each other before they fell in love (but it does get quite steamy toward the end!).


I also enjoyed the whole “big family” aura surrounding this book. I came to realize—as more and more vampire characters popped up—that other books had been written about these other vampires first. But I quite enjoyed the colorful cast and the protectiveness and love this clan of vampires felt for each other. I did not realize this was #32 in a series. Even though this book was one in a series, though, it can be read as a standalone, as I understood everything clearly.


I felt as though the actual plot of the book was a bit slow, but I didn’t mind it too much. I don’t much like romances with mysteries thrown in and much prefer a mystery with a bit of romance. I feel as though the latter does a far better job at developing the plot and the romance than the former, simply because romance authors haven’t dealt in the medium of mystery all that much, and can’t always pull it off. But this is simply my personal opinion.


**Slight Spoiler** The one thing that I felt did not match the tone of the book was Mac realizing that CJ was his mate. He didn’t seem excited or even surprised, even though he had been waiting for her for literally hundreds of years. Also, CJ's relaxed, unsurprised attitude at finding that she was in the midst of a family of vampires near the end of the book seemed a little out-of-place. Not to a huge degree in my opinion, but slightly. End of Slight Spoiler**


Overall, I quite enjoyed the character development, this crazy family of vampires, and the relationship between Mac and CJ. I would definitely read another installment in this series.
