Vampires Need Not...Apply? By Mimi Jean Pamfiloff

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

                First off, if you love reading books that will make you LOL and I do mean literally Laugh Out Loud, to the point where you almost have tears running out of your eyes, you HAVE to check out this series.  I have been a fan since book 1 and I just have to say, they keep getting better and better with each book that comes out.  This book does not disappoint in any sense, the characters, the story, everything was just done amazingly well.

                Ixtab, oh what to say about her.  I want to say that she’s sweet and funny, but she really isn’t.  But she tries!  And that is the important part, right?  Throughout the book we are lucky enough to see her try to become something that she isn’t.  (Yes, I’m talking about her becoming a comedian.)  But we are able to follow along as she does become something that she is.  (Confusing, well read the story and you will understand!)  There were some parts of the book where her character is so misunderstood that you would want to just give her a hug, but then you remember what she is and you don’t do that.  And other parts where you want to send her after your ex, trust me we all got one of ‘those’ ex’s.

                Antonio is a jerk.  Plain and simple.  Even by the end of the book I wasn’t sure if I liked him.  I mean honestly, he’s hot, got sex appeal, smart, and can do that one thing. (You know you want to know).  But there are some times in the book that there that little part of him that comes out and you realize that he is a really sweet guy; a caring guy, who only wants the best for everyone.  And then the real Antonio comes back and you just want to smack him.

                Like I said, I have been a complete fan of this series since book 1 and they are just amazing.  Each of the characters, no matter how minor their role is in the story, does extremely well.  They are all written to where they don’t take over the scene that they are in, unless they are suppose too.  The drama that takes part, just goes to show that sometimes things aren’t always what they seem.  

                I can’t wait to read the rest of the series!  This is a complete MUST READ from me and you should add it to your TBR list now!
