Accidentally...Evil?

Accidentally...Evil? by Mimi Jean Pamfiloff (ARC Review)
Accidentally Yours Book 3.5
RePublished April 30, 2013 by Forever Yours
5 Mystical Stars!

"Without evil there would be no need for heroes, and life would be a lot more dull."

Synopsis -

Backlum Chaam, the God of Male Virility, wasn't always such a bad guy. Before his heart turned black and his biggest goal in life became destroying mankind, he was just like any god. Compassionate, loyal, and dedicated. So where did it all go wrong? Sometimes broken hearts don't heal... (Goodreads)

Review -

Did it really all go wrong?  Or did it go exactly according to plan? Looks as though our favorite do-badder is up to her usual antics. The question readers will be left hanging with is why.

Accidentally...Evil? answers more questions than readers even thought to ask. It has been assumes since book 1 that Chaam had been evil from the beginning,  simply tired of his lot in life, as most of the other gods fans have come to know and love. Turns out we couldn't have been farther from the truth. And the reason for his descent will have not only readers in tears, but even el loco, Cimil. The reason for exuberance is also brought to light in this novella.

In this heart-wrenching, darkly hilarious novella, with a devastating ending, readers will fall madly in love with the most hated of all of the gods, as did his mate, Maggie.  Though most novellas fail to give a believable love story in such few pages, that is not the case here. Both except  what fate has lay before them. Only their happily ever after is very short lived.

Some may be tempted to skip this book, I strongly advise against doing so. It is a very important aspect to this series, and an extremely enjoyable read.

Sun God Seeks...Surrogate?

Sun God Seeks...Surrogate? by Mimi Jean Pafiloff (ARC Review)
Accidental Series Book 3
Re-Published February 25, 2014 by Forever
5 BLOODY FANGS & CELESTIAL STARS!

"Some series begin to lack in substance as they continue, or feel like their stuck on repeat.  Not this one!"

Synopsis -

A Deal from Heaven

Living in New York City, Penelope Trudeau has seen a lot of weird stuff-but nothing like the insane redhead who accosts her with a wild proposition. Penelope will get a million dollars if she has a baby with the strange woman's brother. With her mother dying from a mysterious disease, Penelope can use the money. Yet the terrified waitress is adamant that her womb and eggs are not for sale . . . until she meets her intended mate. He's impressively built, gorgeous, and red-hot, literally. He's a freaking immortal Sun God.

For thousands of years, Kinich (Nick to his friends) didn't believe in fraternizing with humans, so procreating with them is definitely a no-no. But after one sizzling encounter with the beautiful, passionate Penelope, Nick begins to think he was wrong . . . until he realizes meeting Penelope was just another one of his crazy sister's schemes at manipulation. But now that he has Penelope in his life, he can't let her go. Especially because doing so means throwing her into the hands of his dangerous enemies.

Approx. 90,000 words.

Review -

This has to be my favorite in the series', so far.  Completely unpredictable from the beginning to the end, and never a dull moment.  Fans also get to see their favorites and get updates on what has been going on in the lives of both Emma and Guy, and Helena and Niccolo.  Starting the book off with a special kind of twist, a quiz to the reader given by none other than the great Cimil, readers will be in tears from laughing, cringing through the lovely carnage, gasping at each surprise and twist, and more than a little hot under the collar from the steam coming off of the newest couple, Kinich(Nick) and Penelope.  And Vicktor may finally come face to face with his mystery dream woman.

Penelope is a single young woman who is barely able to make ends meet, working hard to take care both her and her sick mother.  So when Cimil approaches her with an indecent proposal, she finds it easy to say no, at first.  When she meets the man in question however, her answer begins to waver, and her body begins to heat up, and five hundred grand would go a long way in helping her mother who seems to worsen by the minute.  A mother with quite a few secrets of her own.  Both figuratively and literally, seeing as the man in question is Cimil's brother, the Sun God, Kinich.  But just as quickly as their love begins to bloom, it also may go up in flames even quicker due to a few misconceptions, misunderstandings and an X-Rated video on YouTube.   And thanks to one divine rerun of The Love Boat, the world may be coming to an end.

What I love most about this series' is that all of the women are the kind that take charge and except their lot in life, and while they may mope for a minute, they don't stay off of the band wagon for long.  Events take place that just may leave the women in charge of things, and the war leading up to the Apocalypse just may begin earlier than planned. 

Readers be warned, this book does end in a cliff hangar that will leave your mouth gaping open, so it is advised to have the rest of the series' close at hand.

Accidentally Married to...a Vampire? Review

Accidentally Married To....A Vampire? by Mimi Jean Pamfiloff (ARC Review)
Accidentally Yours Book 2
Re-Published March 5, 2013 by Forever
5 Bloody Fangs

"Dark humor, dark love and action packed with a good dose of violence, what more could a girl ask for?"

Synopsis -

“If you love her, set her free. If she comes back, she’s yours. If she doesn’t…Christ! Stubborn woman! Hunt her down, and bring her the hell back; she’s still yours according to vampire law.”
- Niccolo DiConti, General of the Vampire Queen’s Army.

THE DETERMINED VAMPIRE: Niccolo DiConti has faithfully served as leader of Her Majesty’s army for over a millennium, but he’d rather sunbathe in the Sahara than spend another grueling day under his demented queen’s command. However, no one has ever left her side and lived to tell. So when a powerful goddess prophesies he will meet his salvation—a human woman he must turn into a vampire with her consent—he eagerly rises to the challenge. After all, how hard could it be to seduce a human female into taking the immortal plunge? Harder than he thinks. Because his mate won’t be born for another three centuries, and when he wakes up in the goddess’ tomb, not only is his life a mess, but his destined female isn’t about to settle for a coldhearted vampire. Can he win her over before it’s too late? Not if his enemies have anything to do with it. 

AN UNWILLING BRIDE: On the night Helena Strauss meets the fierce, devastatingly handsome vampire who saves her life in the jungles of Mexico, she knows her world will be forever changed. Because an attraction this mind blowing only comes along once in a lifetime—or existence. And when he claims she is his one true mate, destined to be his for all eternity, it’s a fairytale come true. So what if her knight in shining armor is a vampire? Nobody’s perfect. But discovering the powerful, overbearing immortal doesn’t “do love”? Deal breaker. Helena will flee and set out to accomplish the impossible…sever the otherworldly bond between them. And it turns out, Helena is just the leverage Niccolo’s enemies need to break the mighty warrior and wipe out his people.  (Goodreads)

Review -

If Krestley Cole and Kerrelyn Sparks had a love child, her name would be Mimi Jean Pamfiloff.  When sitting down to read any book in the Accidentally Yours Series, be prepared to laugh, cry, cringe and lose a good nights sleep.  Accidentally Married to...a Vampire will take readers on an emotional roller coaster ride that all Paranormal lovers are sure to enjoy.

Cimil, a Goddess who would make Nucking Futs Nix proud, is still up to her old tricks when a vampire, Niccolo Diconti, comes seeking her help.  Instead of just giving him straight forward advice (I mean, really, where is the fun in that?) she gives him the advice he "needs".  And knowing that he will not survive the 300 years it will take for his salvation to even be born, she knocks him out, for 300 years.  While he's sleeping she gifts him with a lil surprise.  

Niccolo is more than sure he will have no trouble at all doing as Cimil has told him, after-all, as gorgeous as he is it can't be too hard to seduce his mate.  After living for thirteen centuries, surviving countless battles, leading the Vampire Army, earning the name of the Executioner, it seems winning over his Vampire Bride may be the hardest challenge he has ever faced.  Because when it comes to matters of the heart he is completely clueless, especially since he never realized how much trust played into the equation.  Trust is very hard to build when you have been forbade to reveal the secrets of your world.  It is even harder when the person you are trying desperately to avoid any and all questions from just happens to be a scientist.  His heated and passionate kisses can only hold her off of demanding answers for so long.

Helena is willing to except the fact that not only is Niccolo a vampire, seeing as she is a scientists whom studies things of the unnatural variety it isn't exactly that far stretched for her, and even the fact that he cannot reveal any secrets of his world until she has been transformed.  But, when he tells vampires are unable to love, she wants out, and she doesn't just sit around twiddling her thumbs but takes matters into her own hands and escapes her penthouse prison.  Which takes her on the adventure of a lifetime; running across a drop dead scrumptious looking Demilord with plans of his own, a bar full of leather-clad men with the same sexual preferences as her own, and face to face with the sadistic Vampire Queen that is the ultimate proof of how dangerous it can be for a vampires mate to be human.  

Unpredictability at its best, readers will be guessing as to what will happen from one page to the next and won't experience even one dull moment.  A true must read for Paranormal and PNR lovers everywhere.
