“Thank the gods for the confining strength of leather. She’d be halfway to pregnant already.” – Tommaso by Mimi Jean Pamfiloff
The second book in Mimi Jean Pamfiloff’s Immortal Matchmakers, Inc. series is calamitous, humorous, and full of steamy action. Goddess of the Underworld and insanely wicked redhead Cimil makes a declaration that has all the deities hopping to find their fated significant others. The choices are pair up or prepare to enjoy the most horrible life imaginable for an immortal, regardless of membership in Team Epically Evil or Team Goody Two Shoes. It turns out that fate is not smiling on Tommaso at all as he seems to be number one in the receiving line of life’s “take a dump on you” queue.
Tommaso’s problem, like so many of life’s challenges, is multifaceted. Despite finding his 9-iron wielding fated mate, it is possible that in his delirium he terrorized Charlotte in a very traumatic and memorable fashion. It also appears that he might not be as irresistible as he has been led to believe (or led himself to believe). Can he even save himself at this point, or will he need to a pinch hitter? If Tommaso fails to get the lovely lady on board, life as he knows it will grind to a halt and the new and improved Tommaso will set the world on fire. Literally.
“I am the captain of my own crunch. I am the captain of my own crunch. I can do this.” – Tommaso by Mimi Jean Pamfiloff
At 228 pages, I split this book between two evenings…barely. It is a great read. I absolutely love Mimi’s writing voice, and the characters she creates are always fantastic – fantastically evil, fantastically insane…you get the picture. Despite having delivered an excellent story, the author goes one step further at the end of her books to create dialogue between herself and readers, going into playlists, character cameos, and…is this a section on what is in Cimil’s basement? This series is definitely picking up momentum, and fans are already clamoring for the next wild tale. Who will it be? Please say Zac! More, more, more!
