Vampires Need Not...Apply? Review

Vampires Need Not Apply? by Mimi Jean Pampfiloff (ARC Review)
Accidentally Yours Book 4
5 Bloody Fangs and Galactic Stars!

"Most titles in this series have hidden meanings, turns out this installment has more than just one."

Synopsis -

This is book 4 in the New York Times and USA Today bestselling Accidentally Yours paranormal romance series. 

Meet Dr. Antonio Acero. Heir to Spain's wealthiest family, world-renowned physicist, and dedicated bachelor. While on vacation in southern Mexico, Antonio discovers an ancient Mayan tablet. Local legends say it contains magical properties, properties that could put his stalling research on the map. 

But is this really his lucky break? 

When Antonio attempts to put the tablet to use, he'll discover that Fate has other plans. Her name is Ixtab, and she's quite possibly the deadliest deity who ever lived.

Approx. 85,000 words. (Goodreads)

Review -

I have yet to come across one book in this series that I dislike.  Its as though Pamfiloff has conjured Krestley Cole, Lynsay Sands, Sherrilyn Kenyon (because if characters from different books could be related, Cimil would most definitely be at Simi and Nucking Futs Nix family reunion) and Kerrilyn Sparks, and mixed them with the talented, darkly passionate brain that is all her. Readers can feel the passion she has coming off in waves from each and every page, fall in love with all of her characters, both the good ones and the bad. She is also one of the few authors that have taken the time to actually do her research on the Pantheons and incorporated it in this series, blending all into one, well fourteen, nutty gods. Mostly, her biggest goal has been accomplished ten-fold, bringing smiles to the faces of her readers, when they need it most. There has been many a day where I have been on the verge of going on a homicidal rampage that would give Ixtab, Goddess of Suicide, a run for her money, but getting lost in the world that she creates helps to laugh off some of the flames.  Mimi Jean's humor is nicely dark and twisted, just the way I like it.

Vampires Need Not...Apply? features the goddess none of the others would ever want to trade titles with, the Goddess of Suicide.  Ixtab feels as though she is cursed even more-so than all of the others, since she can't allow any living creature to touch her, even cats, without them instantly committing suicide, in various creative ways.  What drove her to begin wearing her black veil and shapeless clothing was one death that has taken her two centuries to get over, her mate.  So when she comes face to face with the womanizing physicist she has been charged to help, and she finds herself staring into the same face as her Francisco sparks fly, just not the kind with butterflies and rainbows.  After seeing what an arrogant pig he presents himself as, she is ready to walk away and let Fate take over, until she realizes she can touch him without killing him.

Dr. Antonio Acero is dead set on discovering the secrets of the tablet and to open the portal in can create, and not just to save humanity.  Acero's driving force is to save his brother from a father that gives the term Dead Beat Dad a whole new meaning, but his time is running out.  And when a chain of events leads to him becoming a Vampire at Ixtab's request he's ready to rip her head off, since it puts a rather huge flaw in his plans. Though she seems to drive him stark raving mad, he can't deny the pull he feels toward her, even before he sees how beautiful she is. And her simple touch makes him realize the necessity of vampires wearing triple stitch leather pants. The real question is, why is he so ready to accept a world where vampires, deities and other such creatures exist? Is he, a man of science, truly that open minded? Or is he something else altogether.

And my question: WHO AND WHAT THE HELL ARE ANN AND JESS?! The question has yet to be answered and is driving me bonkers. We have seen the duo interact and befriend quite a few of the women, tho never with all of them at once. And exactly what is Cimil up to, and what is her end game? Seems as though all of the chaos she created is leading up to a devastating outcome. Only question: will it stop the Apocalypse, or actually cause it? Hopefully those questions will be answered soon.

Do not do this book the injustice of reading it as a Stand Alone, while it can be done, you will not receive the full impact. Even the Novella's must be read. Fans will be happy with all of the interactions with characters we know and love, and a reunion that will cause a few tears to be shed.
