ARC Review : Accidentally In Love With...A God? (Accidentally Yours #1) By Mimi Jean Pamfiloff

Summary :

Trapped for decades, a powerful god seeks freedom . . . and revenge. But the only thing that can save him is the passion of a woman's touch . . . 

Emma Keane is your average city girl trying to get a date. There's just one thing holding her back: the disembodied male voice speaking to her through her mind. Sound kind of crazy? Maybe. But crazy turns downright deadly when the voice persuades her to travel to the wilds of the Mayan jungle. There she will free his body-his incredibly hot, muscled, naked body.

Humans are so frail, so undisciplined, so susceptible to love. And when this ancient being connects with Emma, the feelings she sparks drive him utterly mad. Protective, keep-her-close, never-let-her-go kind of mad. Which might not be such a bad thing because from the moment the beautiful, passionate Emma unshackles his body, they are hunted at every turn. Now he'll have to do everything in his power to keep her safe. But will it be enough? 

Review :

**Received Through NetGalley**

Let me start with the lead character Emma! She is one character I absolutely LOVED!! She is the queen of one liner’s and she has a pocket where she stores problems she can’t deal with. Well in this story she must have over filled that pocket over and over. Emma is a 22 year old human who has grown up with a man's voice inside of her head making her think that she was crazy. 

After she goes on a date the voice tells her that the man is no good she gets into an accident prompting the voice in her head to prove to her that he isn't just a voice. He convinces her to go to the Mayan Jungle to release him from a cenote in the ruins where his body has been trapped for 70 years. Little does she know she is about to release the God of War and Death the gorgeous Guy/Votan. Even though he promised to leave her alone after she releases him they both find that is easier said than done. Surviving the ordeal of releasing Guy from the cenote, Emma has more questions for him then ever which he refuses to answer. His job is to keep her safe from the evil Maaskab Priests who are hunting her down because she is a demigoddess and they want her for sinister reasons.

The story was well written, fun, and fast paced. Really liked the writing style. I also appreciated that while there was plenty of chemistry between Emma and Guy/Votan, that it wasn't the driving force in their relationship or in the book. Being the first book in the Accidently Yours... Series, I would say this series is off to a great start.
