This is a lighthearted, fun, not to be taken seriously good time romp of a read. I was smiling, laughing, and shaking my head as I made my way through this novella. It served as a nice contrast to the book Gone Girl, which is notably the exact opposite of this book. I was simultaneously reading the two and I so needed the counterbalance this one provided.
Backlum Chaam, as I mention in my teaser synopsis, is the God of Male Virility. He's a prime example of an alpha male and about as sexy as they come. He was also a seventy thousand year old virgin. So imagine if you will a man, er, god who's craved a mate and intimacy for that long. He is not about to let her go and feels in his gut that fate has brought them together. Whether that is true remains to be seen as he realizes she is what she claims--a human. But humans aren't supposed to be able to touch or be touched by the gods. Is she truly a gift from the universe or could she be a ploy sent by the Maaskab to destroy him? That is the dilemma he must face.
Margaret O'Hare had been looking for her father who had been excavating an ancient site when he'd disappeared. Unsure what exactly had happened to herself, she'd woken up to find herself staring at a beautiful but naked man who was toweling himself dry after a swim. A man claiming to be a god and telling her, "I know exactly what I'm doing. I know exactly what you want." Was she dreaming or had she hit her head on something? If she was/had, she wasn't sure she wanted to wake up or stop the hallucination. One touch, one kiss, however, made her see he was telling the truth. With her father's life potentially on the line can she keep him at bay and resist his charms long enough to find her father? That my dears is one of many questions.
Overall I gave this one 4 out 5 roses. This was a very well written novella that didn't feel rushed like so many short stories that I've read. I didn't feel lost even though I hadn't read the previous 3 books to the Accidentally Yours series. I felt I got a wonderful introduction to the world Mimi Pamfiloff has created, however, the novella ended with a huge cliffhanger that had me wondering what would happen next. So be forewarned--you'll probably be wanting to read the next book to find out how things will wrap up. On the Lisarenee Romance Rating Scale, this novella receives a STEAM rating--too hot for a fan, but you still have a handle on things. You should use extreme caution when reading a book with this rating in public. People may inquire as to why you looked flustered and flushed. If you haven't read any of Ms. Pamfiloff's books, this would be a great way to get a taste. A very fun and steamy series that would be perfect to read on the beach during the lazy days of summer.
