Colel – Mimi Jean Pamfiloff

How do I describe this book, and series? Well it’s a mash-up of paranormal, zombie apocalypse (without the zombies but with rabid immortals instead) and rom-com.

So a very run-of-the-mill book,  not ๐Ÿ˜‰.

The Immortal Matchmakers books can be read stand-alone, though there is also a story arch that runs throughout the series. Having read only two of the five books (this and book #4), I can tell you from personal experience that you quickly pick up the threads that run throughout them all, plus there is a glossary of characters at the back of the book to help you keep all those Gods, Goddesses and other Immortal Beings in order. Well possibly all of them except Cimil, no one’s keeping her in order!

If you read this (and you really should) you will be getting a REALLY fun read that will have you giggling at it’s silliness – including all the very many ‘bee’ puns. It’s also very well written, incredibly snarky, has a really engaging story, some unexpected twists and turns and a lot of sexual frustration followed by some scorching hot sex. Outside. Against a truck at one point.

[He] was like an immortal manly soup that nourished her down to the tips of her golden hair.

As with a lot of paranormal books this is written in the third person, which is definitely needed since we get the view point of several different characters, including some from previous books. Again you really don’t need to have read those books, the author cleverly weaves information into this so that you can keep up with the story. It also means you don’t need to re-read previous books to keep up with the plot. That said most of the book focuses on Colel, her massive attraction to Rys and all the obstacles that the Universe (who was either more sadistic than ever, or the damned woman had finally cracked) put in their way.

Now whilst MJP likes to give us a happy ending, she isn’t averse to making her characters and readers suffer along the way to said HEA. In fact I get the feeling that she likes nothing better than torturing her readers by dangling love, peace, harmony and all that jazz just in front of your nose, then snatching it away again as she cackles hysterically about it. For instance Zac and Tula – talk about give with one hand and take away with the other!

I don’t beelieve that there’s much more to say. It’s a fun book, more plot than character driven, fast paced, silly and a great read. This is a quote that nicely sums up what you’ll be getting for your well spent coin.

The woman’s mouth fell open to the fully slack position as she took in the enormous beehive atop Colel’s head.
“Oh no. Don’t do that. Chuck will think it’s an invitation.”
He loved the warmth of a good human mouth or , really, any human orifice. 
Such a pervy little thing

***PS*** Chuck is the head bee in her posse

From New York Times Bestseller Mimi Jean Pamfiloff comes a Standalone, Romantic Comedy a la Paranormal…

COLEL, Book #5, the Immortal Matchmakers, Inc., Series

This book contains foul language, gratuitous sex against a truck, outrageously rude immortal warriors in leather pants, snow, pigheaded gods, a sexually frustrated goddess, a very hot and hunky florist guy with a bad attitude and a big secret, Brutus bubble baths, a sneaky invisible unicorn, unrequited love, bees, bees, and more bees, and chocolates.



Colel, the Goddess of Bees, has been looking for Mr. Right for over seventy thousand years. So when she meets the hunky owner of a small-town flower shop and explodes with flutters and tingles, she’s almost certain that he’s the one.

Only two problems: her tiny black-and-yellow army suddenly won’t let her anywhere near him, and…is that a freaking epinephrine pen in the fridge? “Dear gods! He’s allergic to bees? Say it isn’t so.”

If simply dating the guy will kill him, how will she ever know for sure if he’s really the one?

Colel has a solution, but it’s drastic. Even for her. And what if he says no?
