About the Book
When Maggie O’Hare hears those words she thinks she’s lost her mind. One minute she was traipsing around the Mayan jungle looking for her father’s excavation site; the next she’s accused of being immortal by a guy who swears he’s a god. And as for the making love part . . . well, the fact that it sounds like a very good idea is a sure sign she’s gone mad. But this guy who calls himself the God of Virility-he’s superhot. And every time he touches her, something crazy happens.
Backlum Chaam has waited seventy thousand years to meet the woman Fate has chosen for him, and now that she’s here, he can’t believe his luck. Maggie is brilliant and gorgeous and everything he could have dreamed of . . . except that she insists she’s human. But Chaam knows that’s impossible-a god could never love a human. And if he seduces one, their passion could have the power to destroy mankind . . .

Before I even started reading this book I could tell there was going to be a good amount of humor in it. The acknowledgments were infused with humor (albeit an inside joke with her social media fans.) So when I started to get into the book I was happy that the humor continued. It gave the book a fanciful feeling. I knew the story was going to be a fun read and it’s not meant to be a serious (as in not funny ha ha) romance novella. I tend to read lots of heavy and serious books, so I love when I get to change the pace a little bit and read something that is meant to be fun. And the humor in this one is similar to my sense of humor – a bit raunchy and sarcastic – so I was able to get into the story that much more.
The novella follows Maggie and Chaam. Maggie is a fairly well developed character – she’s got a story, a purpose, and morals. She did come off as a bit of a prude (even for 1934) at the begining of the story, but as she started to warm up to Chaam I started to warm up to her. The other characters – Chaam, Cimil, and grandpa – aren’t as well developed in this novella. After reading some of the excerpts from other books in the Accidentally Yours series I can tell that Chaam and Cimil’s characters are developed in other stories.
This novella made me want to read the rest of the series for two major reasons. 1 – there is such a build up and the story ends as a cliffhanger, so I have a need to find out what happens next. 2 – I think I could really like these characters. I don’t feel like I missed out not having fully read any of the other books, but I would like to know a bit more of the back story.
The story was humorous and it did live up to it’s warning: sexual content and naughty words. This was a nice change of pace for me and I enjoyed reading it. I would pick up more of Mimi Jean’s books in the future.
