Trapped for decades, a powerful god seeks freedom . . . and revenge. But the only thing that can save him is the passion of a woman's touch . . .
Emma Keane is your average city girl trying to get a date. There's just one thing holding her back: the disembodied male voice speaking to her through her mind. Sound kind of crazy? Maybe. But crazy turns downright deadly when the voice persuades her to travel to the wilds of the Mayan jungle. There she will free his body-his incredibly hot, muscled, naked body.
Humans are so frail, so undisciplined, so susceptible to love. And when this ancient being connects with Emma, the feelings she sparks drive him utterly mad. Protective, keep-her-close, never-let-her-go kind of mad. Which might not be such a bad thing because from the moment the beautiful, passionate Emma unshackles his body, they are hunted at every turn. Now he'll have to do everything in his power to keep her safe. But will it be enough?

Wasn't dating supposed to be fun? Because this was anything but. At any moment, a man I'd never met—approximately six foot three, brown hair, and soul-piercing blue eyes, according to his online profile—would walk through the door of the Conga Lounge, give his name to the hostess, and scream hysterically at the sight of me. Okay. He wouldn't scream ... aloud, anyway. Not that I was heinous, but anyone who looked closely enough might notice I was ... different.
I eyeballed the door, contemplating a mad dash before he arrived.
No, you can do this, I thought, while staring at the condensation channeling down my glass of water, my leg bouncing under the table. Why had my date picked a corny-themed bar that looked like Gilligan's Island threw up? What sort of man goes novelty on the first date?
Bad sign. Bad sign.
At least the other patrons seated around the faux torchlit room, leisurely sipping Bahama Mamas and mai tais were oblivious to my impending meltdown.
I felt the gentle whoosh of summer evening air as the door swung open, and the noise from the traffic-packed New York street poured in. A tall man with sun- kissed skin, broad shoulders, and tousled brown hair floated inside—yes, floated—as if he'd ridden in on a cloud straight from Hot Man Land. He wore a black, polished cotton shirt, which hugged his well-constructed chest, and low-slung jeans that molded to his lean physique. He wasn't just good- looking, he was Milan runway edible.
"Oh, sweet Virgin of Guadalupe, please be Jake," I muttered under my breath.
Like a cliché from a movie, our eyes met from across the room, and his face lit up with a dimple-framed smile. My heart nearly stopped. "Thank you, Virgin," I said, releasing my breath.
He strutted across the restaurant, a magnet for every female in the room.
"Emma?" he said in a deep, slow-churned voice, then smiled and held out his hand. I stood up in a daze, mentally pinching myself.
"You are Emma, right? Curly, shoulder-length, red hair, five three. Several crazed female stalkers for best friends?"
Oh no. What had my roommates done? Since the whole online-blind-date thing was their idea, they assured me they'd carefully "screened" the guy. But I thought they were just joking about breaking into his apartment and rummaging through his underwear drawer. And dammit, they hadn't even bothered to dish.
Tighty-whities or boxers?
I looked down at his outstretched hand. Oh, shoot. Shake hands. "Sorry, it's just—I wasn't expecting someone so ..." I swallowed and placed my palm in his. It was warm and inviting, like his eyes. "Um ... so tall."
"And I wasn't expecting a woman so"—he paused to look me over like a dog eyeing a giant juicy steak—"adorable."
"Adorable?" said the deep male voice inside my head. "What kind of moron compliments a woman with the word adorable? Does he think you're a goddamned puppy?"
Couldn't I have one, just one lousy day without the voice? My blood began to boil instantly, but I resisted the urge to snap back with something lame like, "Well, maybe Jake senses I want to lick him from head to toe. Maybe even have a go at his leg." But then I thought better of myself. Because tonight, I was on a mission, and nothing would stop me from climbing my own mental Mount Everest: convince myself that I, Emma Keane, could feel attraction for a real live man with ten fingers, ten toes, arms and legs, and the other necessary, dangly bits needed to make a relationship normal. All I needed was the right man.
The other person I had to prove this to wasn't exactly a person. Okay, truth be told, he was a mysterious voice only I could hear. Yes, a luscious, deep, velvety voice so intriguing and seductive it could turn me into a quivering mindless puddle of need with one little sigh. I couldn't get enough of it. Sound crazy? That wasn't the half of it. But it was why I had to do this. If I wanted a shot at normal, I had to take this first step and break this annoying, lifelong addiction.
Jake and I held hands for several moments before we sank into our wicker seats. "You must be Jake." Stupid statement, I know, but I had forgotten all of the witty icebreakers I'd painstakingly memorized.
He nodded and continued smiling.
"So." I paused, trying to think of something clever to say. It didn't happen. "My friends, they didn't do anything crazy, did they?" Other than a felony B and E?
Jake shook his head. "Aside from having me followed? No. They just sent an e- mail making it clear they'd remove both my testicles if I did anything wrong."
I cringed inside, but at least he didn't know about the home invasion.
"With a dull spoon," Jake added.
The voice snickered. "I've changed my mind. I now officially approve of your friends."
Jake continued, lowering his voice, "I'm glad I came. I thought your profile might have been exaggerating your looks. It didn't."
"What a cretin. You're not falling for this crap, are you, Emma?"
I felt my temper percolating, but I hung on. "Thanks," I said to Jake and then looked down at my hands.
"I hope you like this place." He opened up the piña colada–shaped menu. "The food, I hear, is tiki-licious."
"Right. That's it. This date ... is over!"
Percolate went to boiling over. "Jake, I'll be right back."
"Um, okay," I heard him say as I stomped off to the bathroom. I slammed the door shut and checked the two small stalls.
"You giant turd! You promised you wouldn't talk!" I hissed. "Not a peep."
"Well, that was before ..."
There was a cricket-worthy pause.
"Fine. You listen to me, Guy." That was my latest name for him since he'd never shared his real one. "We had a deal. You promised you'd behave—"
"And you swore on your soul you'd pull the plug if I said so."
"Oh, no, no, my friend." I shook my finger at the air, even though he couldn't see me. "I said I'd end the date if you sensed anything wrong."
"Yes, and he's clearly deranged."
"Deranged?" I barked. "You're un-bel-ievable! He's said two words—"
"Eighty-five. Or was it eighty-seven? Hell, it doesn't matter. I knew on word three there was something ... off."
"Oh my God! You're completely full of it!" Hiccup! Hiccup! "Great. See what you did? My night is ruined." Hiccup!
"Do you have a paper bag?" he asked.
I continued hiccuping uncontrollably. "No. Doesn't exactly go with my new dress." Hiccup. "Besides." Hiccup. "That only works for hyperventilating. I'm working up to that next."
"New dress?" he asked, his tone a notch above angry. "You didn't wear the new green dress, did you? The tight one that shows every curve and 'makes a man instantly hard,' as your friend, Anne, so eloquently stated?"
The door to the restroom swung open. The woman gave me a nod as she went into one of the stalls.
Christ! I'd forgotten my wireless headset. Again. Without it, I looked like another New Yorker one step away from a Repent Now! sandwich sign. I scrounged through my matching satin evening bag and popped on my prop.
"Answer me! Did you wear the dress? After I expressly prohibited it?"
Should I tell him I secretly wish he could see me in it? No. No! What am I thinking? He could never know what went on inside my head; he'd only use my feelings against me. I hiccuped three times in quick succession. "Yes! I wore it, and it looks fabulous. You should see all the men walking around with colossal erections from looking at me!"
Just then, the woman emerged from the stall and scampered out of the bathroom. She didn't even bother to wash her hands. Ewww, I thought.
"You play with fire, little girl."
"No! You play with ..." I couldn't think of anything meaty to say. "Uuuh ... fire. I'm going out there, and I'm going to finish this date whether you like it or not. And if you make one more peep, just one more, you're going to ... uh ... get burned!" I so need to work on my threat technique. "Got it?"
"And if I don't do as you say?"
Again, I came up empty in the threat department, so I threw out, "I'll go home with Jake and sleep with him! That's right. Wild monkey sex, too! Hanging from the chandelier and everything." Does Jake even have a chandelier? I'll have to ask.
He growled. "You wouldn't."
"Try me! Not one more peep!" I smoothed down my curls, hiccuped five more times, then took a deep breath, and headed out into the dining area. The woman from the bathroom caught my eyes for a brief moment before looking toward her date and leaning in to whisper something. Her companion shot me a quick judgmental glance over his shoulder. I resisted blurting out that his date was disgusting and had cooties on her hands. Instead, I lifted my chin and walked over to the table where Jake was sitting back, completely unaware of the turbulence he'd invited into his life.
That's when the tsunami of guilt hit me.
I stopped and looked down at Jake, the most beautiful man I'd ever seen in real life.
"Everything okay?" he asked, obviously wondering why I hadn't taken my seat.
Jake's online profile said he was looking for someone special, someone to settle down with. That someone wasn't me. How could it be? I was ... complicated. My heart was trapped in some sort of bizarre purgatory, attached to a voice. Or, more accurately stated, attached to the endless images and fantasies my mind had conjured up to go with the stupid voice.
I couldn't go on with the date. There was simply no point. I had to get rid of Guy, or there would be no normal. No boyfriends. No husband. No wild monkey sex.
I hiccuped twice, making Jake jump in his seat.
He stifled a smile. "Oh, here. Try drinking some water."
I smoothed down the front of my dress, barely holding on to my tattered self- esteem. "I'm sorry, Jake, but you don't want me. I've got so much baggage even JFK couldn't handle it. But it was nice meeting you, and I hope you find that special someone."
Jake stared blankly and then nodded slowly.
I bolted outside onto the bustling street filled with people enjoying their Friday night, living their lives while I continued hiccuping uncontrollably.
"Emma, I'm glad you came to your senses. All this bickering is tiresome, especially when you know I'm right. That male was despicable. Why do you even bother to challenge me?"
That's when the doors flew off.
"You're a horrible, egotistical caveman! I'm done! Do you hear me? Done! You. Have. Got to leave!"
Several couples scurried past me. Although I was pretending to be talking to someone on my headset, I still looked like a detonating atom bomb in a green dress, mushrooming with toxic radiation.
"I'm not going anywhere, Emma. Besides, what would you do without me?"
"You can't be serious!"
"Why the hell not? If it weren't for me, some sleazeball would be using you for his sexual pleasure at this very moment. Is that what you truly want?"
"Yes! Wait. No ..." I sighed. "Don't you get it?" I need to move on. I need a normal life. I can't keep obsessing over you, I wanted to add and thanked my lucky stars Guy could not read my thoughts.
"Once again, you ask this ridiculous question. The answer is no! I do not 'get it.' I do not 'get' your determination to throw yourself into situations that will only cause trouble. And as long as I exist, I have vowed to protect you ... even if it's from yourself."
"Protect me?" That was always his fallback line, but he never could explain why that was even necessary. What the hell did I need protection from? "You're not protecting me, you're hurting me and keeping me from having an actual life! And if you're not going to tell me why, there's nothing left to talk about."
"I've still got plenty to say, little girl."
"No! This is over! Do you hear me? I'm ending this." I stepped off the curb into the crosswalk, continuing to stomp my way home, determined to find the answer to my million-dollar question: How, dammit, would I get rid of him? I'd researched exorcists, psychotherapy drugs to block him from my mind, and shock treatment, but nothing gave me hope of extracting him without exposing myself and being locked away in a white padded room. Just then, from the corner of my eye, I saw a set of lights barreling down on me and felt my body fly through the air before everything went dark.
"Guy? What happened? Where am I?" I said aloud. I spun several times, looking up, down, in every direction. I was perched on a large balcony jutting from the face of a decadent three-story villa carved into a lush green hillside. Like a fortress, I thought. I feel safe here.
"Emma, honey? Can you hear me?" a familiar female voice called from beyond the rolling hills.
My head snapped up, canvassing the terrain. I saw nothing but miles of neatly groomed vines heavy with burgundy grapes and almost as beautiful as the red-and- pink bougainvillea bowing over the towering arched windows at my sides. Every inch of the place was breathtaking. But where was I? Heaven. Yes, must be heaven.
"Emma, please, baby. Come back." The voice carried on the wind. It was my mother I finally realized, but I didn't want to leave.
Just then, a low hum tumbled down the hills like an invisible avalanche and began sifting into the air around me, vibrating like a swarm of angry bees. The noise roared inside my head.
I cupped my ears and doubled over, but the sound only amplified. My skull quaked with pain as the buzzing burrowed deep inside and settled in my bones, causing me to collapse into a quivering heap. I could have stayed like that for minutes, hours, or days. Who knows? But when that luscious voice came crashing through the layers of crippling noise, I clung to it like a life raft. It was a voice so soothing, so deep and hypnotic that every cell in my body fluttered with euphoria.
Then the voice began humming, a message embedded in the melody, "Please, my sweet, do not leave me. I'm sorry." The voice repeated the same message over and over again, yet never paused from the melody.
Wait. I recognized that song. It was—it was from ... Madame Butterfly!
"Oh, God. No! Go away!" My eyes flew open. I wanted to scream, but tubes were wedged in my mouth and throat. I gagged and clawed, then heard ear-piercing beeps and screeches.
My parents, with ghostly pale faces, hovered over me, yelling for the nurse. I was in the hospital, and not just any hospital, but the one where my parents practiced. The powder-blue walls were unmistakable.
"Emma! Baby!" My mother slid the tube from my mouth, threw herself over me, and sobbed with joy.
I winced as someone flipped on the blinding lights directly above. "What happened?" I managed to croak.
My mother's bloodshot brown eyes told me it was something catastrophic. "You were hit by a cab, honey," she said as she smoothed the hair back from my forehead. "The driver said you just ... came out of nowhere."
Oh. That. "I was distracted." By an evil, disembodied dictator who's hijacked my head, I wanted to add.
"Yes, Dr. Keane?" The nurse entered the room through a panel of pale blue curtains and gasped, her eyes wide. She scrambled to my side and began prodding while my parents moved aside and began hugging each other, crying.
"How long was I out?" I grumbled to the nurse, who checked my vitals.
She gave me a nervous look before she flashed a light in my eyes. "One month."
One month? I'd been out one whole month? I wiggled my toes under the beige blanket covering my lower legs. My body was stiff and sore, but nothing felt broken.
"Blunt head trauma with no signs of brain activity. You were in a coma, but you beat the odds, young lady," the nurse elaborated, checking my IV drip. "A true miracle."
The word miracle jarred me. Was it really? Had getting hit by a cab and being in a coma been the magic key to getting rid of Guy? I remembered the dream I'd had before waking up, but it could have been just that, a dream.
I mentally held my breath, hoping the universe had taken pity on me, while the nurse spent the next few minutes observing me like a lab rat before she turned to my still-sobbing parents, who were alternating between hugging each other and making calls on their cells to family.
"Can I speak with you both outside for a moment?" the nurse asked. "I need you to fill out some paperwork."
Frantic, they each kissed me on the forehead. "We'll be back in two seconds, baby," my mom sputtered. "I love you. Oh, thank God you're okay. We—I, we just love you so much, honey. We'll be right back."
"I love you guys, too," I mumbled.
They disappeared behind the curtain out into the hall. The heavy door made a loud thug! as it closed behind them.
Crap! I jumped. "Holy Virgin of Guadalupe, not you." I covered my face with my hands.

Review originally posted at Romancing the Book
I just had to read this book when I saw the cover and the title of the book. It was really interesting.
Emma thinks that she is going crazy and so does everyone around her. For some unseen reason she hears a voice that only she can hear. I can’t imagine what I would do if that happened to me. You just never know if it is true or if you are going crazy.
Just imagine for just one moment that the voice was real and he promises you that if you help him he will let you go and never hear his voice again. So she helps him and boy is he to die for. Not your everyday guy. There is just something about him that is different and unique.
This is a book that will take you on an adventure that you thought you would only dream about going on. There is excitement and thrilling non-stop action. When you read this book you won’t have time to get bored. You will just say what in the world is going to happen next. I had many of a time saying did that just happen. I had to go back and reread it again just to make sure that I was correct.
This was the first book that I have read by this author and I found out that she is having another book come out and I will be making sure that I will be getting that. There is so many secrets and I just want to get to the bottom of them all. It is driving me crazy just wondering what is going to happen in the next book.
If you like sexy Gods and non stop adventure this is the book for you and make sure to read the other books that she has coming out. Once you read this one you will want to read the next.

Fun read, but beware the yo-yoing.
I received this book via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
Emma hears a voice in her head. It's a hot, demanding male who claims he's just trying to protect her whenever he tells her a guy isn't good enough for her. She wants rid of him and is willing to do anything to make that happen. Even travel to Mexico to free him from some magical prison. But when her "Guy" turns out to be a god, Emma's life will never be the same.
This heroine had me laughing at the start. Unfortunately, though the story is fairly solid all the way through, the humor petered off for me. Humor is so hard to keep going through an entire book, so it's understandable. The hero's yo-yoing, supposedly for the heroine's sake, drove me a bit bonkers. I probably would have given this a higher rating if it hadn't been for that (or if the humor had carried through to the end). Though there is plenty of reason for both characters to whine, we don't get much of it. And last, but not least, we get a nice resolution at the end. Mechanics wise, the writing is good. So this get's a solid 3*.

' I received a free ARC of this book from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review '
I just can't seem to get enough of this series. I read Accidentally married to... A Vampire? first and I couldn't believe how much I loved that book. I read it in a matter of hours. This one was no different. When I seen this book on NetGalley I couldn't believe my luck that I got to read and review a book by an Author that I know is going to entrance me.
Votan ( Guy ) is the God of War and Death. He is cursed to spend his life alone as the Gods don't mess around with each other and they are not compatible with humans therefore cannot be with them. At least that's what he thinks. Then the always lovely Cimil tells him of his future mate. He finds this hard to believe until he surprisingly has a vision of her himself. When he runs into a little girl that he can sense has the blood of the Gods in her he cannot believe it and bonds himself to her to protect her. Before he gets the chance to protect anyone he is cursed and trapped until he can get someone to free him.
Emma has always had this voice in her head. He never told her his name so she eventually starts calling him Guy. In her eyes Guy is constantly trying to ruin her life. Heaven forbid if she try and go on a date. He never shuts up until he ruins it for her. He says he is protecting her. She thinks not. Then after she gets seriously injured he decides enough is enough. He needs to be freed and Emma has to be the one to do it. So after going on a quest to free and finally be rid of Guy Emma is thrown into one dangerous situation after another with still no answers to any of her questions. After constantly lying to and using and manipulating Emma when Guy finally tells her the truth of how he feels will she believe him or turn away from him?
I absolutely loved this book. I could not put it down. Emma was a very strong woman and dealt with whatever came her way and did not back down. Now that I finally read book one in this series I am on pins and needles wanting to read the rest. From the two books that I have already read in the series it seems as if the books can be read as stand alone books. I highly recommend reading this book.

This was one of the first books I hand ever read by this author, let me tell you I was blown away. I am also irritated because I had never read anything from her before. This book had everything for me. It had action and sexy God's and Goddesses, evil villains and demi gods. Not to mention the sexual tension between our main hero's. Mimi has a way with blending the past and present that makes it easy to follow. I am already looking forward to Mimi's next book and I am hoping I get to review it.
Guy aka Votan the God of Death and War has been trapped in a cenote and the only one that could hear him or free him was Emma Keane. She had been living with his voice in her head since she was a a six year old girl. Now she is an adult and the problem is she was hearing other noises now. The only way to break the bond was for her to travel to Mexico and free him.
After Emma frees "Guy" they both realize that they are in danger from the Maaskab. Emma and Guy race to discover who has trapped the other God's and Goddesses. Emma also searches to figure out what happened to her Grandmother in Mexico all those years ago. Emma and Guy travel with the Uchben all over trying to ignore their feelings for each other while searching for clues.

I received a copy of this book from Netgalley in return for an honest review.
Emma Keane is a twenty two year old woman and a character I wasn't sure I liked at first. I found her a bit whiny, but when you have a disembodied voice that speaks to you in your head, you would be whiny too, I suppose.
Guy (AKA Votan) is a character that I had a bit of an issue with. Was he a god or an alien pretending to be a god? (Considering his real body was made of energy). However, I must admit that I did like him, even though his arrogance at times made me want to thump him!
This is a romance story that is somewhat unique! I have read lots of romances over the years, but this story had an unusual arc. There are several twists that kept me guessing, and the characters came alive on the page. There are some really witty comments bantered between the two characters that had me giggling, because they sounded like a married couple even though they had never physically met. However, things get even more interesting when Emma and Guy finally meet face to face. Sparks fly as their attraction flares. But danger is not that far away, and exciting fights and chases ensue. The story is told from both Emma's and Guy's point of view, but a few of the other characters have their say too. There are interesting characters that are ambiguous, and I wasn't sure if they were friend or foe. Cimil is crazy (with a capital C)! I never knew if she was helping or causing trouble! Uchben is a twisted character who is rather terrifying! The ending has a surprising twist and made me look forward to reading the next book in the series.
Mimi Jean Pamfiloff has written a fast paced romance story that kept my attention from the first page to the last! I will certainly read more of this authors books in the future.
I recommend this book if you love romance novels (paranormal or contemporary) with a touch of humour mixed in with danger. - Lynn Worton

Emma has dealt with the voice in her head for years. It has put a big dent on her being able to date as the guy in her head always butts in. The guy in her head ask for her help in getting free and away she goes to get her life back not knowing t was fixing to change forever. Guy is actually a God who ha been trapped for decades and only Emma can free him. Once he is free he goes trying to get revenge on those that trap him. With Gods and more on the hunt for Emma it's going to be a hard to protect her when they can't get along.
I have heard so many great things about this book. It sounded so good with ancient hot gods, revenge and more. For me I loved the plot, the action, getting to dig in and see what all had happened in the past and getting to see more of the gods. It has a great pace and is very well written. Emma does pretty good dealing with all that has been put on her. She has a witty remark for everything and I have to say she has a drive to survive. Guy is so hot and very powerful. Even after being in Emma's head he still doesn't know how to deal with her. At times he can be arrogant but hey he is a god so it's to be expected. This book is very entertaining and the only reason I didn't love it is I did not like Guy and Emma together. They fought so much and it was like they had no connection to me. When they had separate scenes I enjoyed the book more. I couldn't see them as a couple and while it is great there wasn't the whole instant love deal I just wanted more from them. They have a sexual drive to each other and the author does a great job letting you get to know both of them. Just for me I didn't care for them as a couple. I would still recommend this book to any lover of a great story that is well written and intriguing.

Emma has been talking to this voice in her head for as long as she can remember, she named him Guy. Guy was like her guardian angel keeping her out of trouble, along with driving her crazy. After being hit by a car and in a coma for a month, Guy convince her to Mexico to help release him. Once Emma gets to the place she need to go, she's already endanger. Guy gets her to run and go to the place where he is in prison at. Emma refuses to get in the water, so Guy get a jaguar to scare her. She jumps in the water and finds a jar to throw at the jaguar. Guy is finally released and he can't find Emma. Guy drags Emma out of the water and Emma can't believe her eyes. Guy gets Emma to a safe place, and leaves her there to find out what's going on. There is a trader amongst his kind and they try and take Emma. Guy gets back to Emma and takes her to another place. In the mist of everything going on they find out that a jade is what a human can wear and not be hurt by touching a god. Emma finds out the Guy is really Votan "The God Of Death And War" but she's already in love with him to matter much.

It was okay. I had a hard time liking the main characters. I like the story though. The characters were really jarring, and it was hard to feel the connection between them. I'm going to continue with the next in the series, because it is a quick, fun read. This book was more humor then feeling. I do look forward to the other books in the series, I'm hoping for some more likable characters.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

I started this series with the 3rd book. Big mistake! Make sure you start with this one. I really liked it! It was funny. I found myself chuckling quite a few times. This story also had quite a bit of action going on. My kind of book!Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

Accidentally in love with ... a series filled with humor, alpha hunks, romance, and cliffhangers.
When I received my copy of Mimi Jean Pamfiloff's Accidentally in Love with ... A God? from Forever (Grand Central Publishing), I was a little confused. I thought at first it was a new book in this fabulously fun series by Pamfiloff and thought I was experiencing deja vu when I started to read it. Not! Instead, this is a newly revised and re-edited version of the first book of her Accidentally Yours series prepared for mass-market paperback distribution.
I decided to not only read this book, but re-read the entire series. I'm so glad I did as I had forgotten how really fun it is. In doing so, I realized that Pamfiloff definitely rates authors with Lynsay Sands' Argeneau series and Christine Feehan's Dark in sheer enjoyment, romance, fun, and the creation of a world and characters that we love to love.
In this first book, Pamfiloff introduces us to a world of drop dead gorgeous gods (now wouldn't you like Guy to be a voice in your head too); an evil group of unwashed villains who wiped out the Mayan civilization; their counterparts for good based in Rome at the Vatican; and assorted other supernatural elements (vampires, leprechauns, etc.). Her heroine, Emma, once she understands what is in play and accepts her new reality, is kick-ass, and, throughout the book, just fun. She's someone you'd like to be friends with.
What I LOVE about Pamfiloff's writing is the fact you'll find me laughing out loud at some of the antics that occur, while moments later I may be white-knuckling the e-reader as the action becomes dicey. And nothing can be predicted with a wild card like Cimil around (who'll have her own novella in January, Accidentally...Cimil?).
If you haven't already read this series, please mark your calendars for the release date of October 29 (yes, in time for your own Halloween treat) and load this revised e-book on your reader. I didn't compare the two versions I have, but do recognize that authors do like the chance to tweak a little. This was a fabulous read and I can only highly recommend this version. That said however, if you already own the first book, I don't think there are significant enough changes for you to purchase this one (though I do love the new cover).
I really admire Pamfiloff's breezy prose and her ability to keep so many plot points juggled in the air. Reading through the five books so far in the series, I cannot wait for Cimil's story, but am quite sad to think that the series will wrap up next August with Accidentally...Over?. So, please if you haven't read these yet, do get started on the Accidentally Yours books; and if you already have them, re-read the series before Cimil's story is published. I know on this second read I saw elements I missed the first time round that really added to my enjoyment of the entire series.
I received a digital galley of this book for review purposes from the publisher through NetGalley.

3.5 Stars I really loved the beginning of this book. There is this masculine voice talking inside of Emma’s head. She has had her talking to her entire life. Not matter what she does, she can’t get rid of it. It has become difficult for her to have normal relationships with people and especially men. Emma calls this voice “Guy.”
In the beginning, I loved Guy and Emma’s banter and I did not mind the flashbacks because I wanted to learn more about Guy. However, I felt just when the story was taking off, something would happen and it would slow down and we would be at square once again. Just when I was connecting to Guy and Emma, I was thrown off and the connection was broken. When they were together, I would like them to be together. It would be nice if they “talked” instead of Guy always telling her “later” when she would ask him a question. I loved the banter, but let them connect with a nice laugh or nice words once in a while. Emma was just so angry and I understand why…she never got any answers. The banter in the beginning of the book was cute and fun; the banter later in the book made me cringe.
Bottom, this was fast paced, cute, and interesting story. The story kept me interested. I will read the next book in the series.

This may sound like not-the-right-thing-to-say-about-a-romance-novel, but I was completely and thoroughly entertained by this book. I haven't been THIS excited about spending my time reading in a while.
Emma is my favorite heroine. Period. Ever. I can't count how many times I was laughing out loud, and I totally was able to relate to everything about her.
The whole situation between Guy and Emma is so...odd at first. I've never read another book with a story like it.
This book had the perfect balance of sarcastic humor, sexual tension, action and mystery. It beautifully opens the door for subsequent books, and I will be reading every single one of them.
I was intrigued from page 1. Mimi obviously did a lot of research to make this book as factually accurate as possible, and incorporated so many aspects of many different cultures. I am a HUGE fan of Mimi Jean!!!
