THE BOYFRIEND COLLECTOR, Book #2 by Mimi Jean Pamfiloff
Genre: Contemporary Romance, Young Adult
From New York Times Bestseller Mimi Jean Pamfiloff comes the STEAMY Part Two and conclusion of The Boyfriend Collector.
My name is Dr. Bex Hughes, and I’m in love with a woman who cannot truly love me back. Unless I help her as my patient, and that is forbidden—a taboo in the eyes of the world and the worst professional sin for a therapist.
But what else can I do? Rose was once a real-life Cinderella. Now she’s wealthy, single, and free. Except she’s convinced that love is used to hurt people, family tries to murder you for money, and no one can be trusted. It’s all she’s ever known.
So I’m bending every rule I’ve ever lived by and helping her find her way to real happiness. Only, my self-control wears thin as I hear the details of Rose’s dating adventures. Can I prove I will love her unconditionally before my jealousy shatters her trust in me forever?
Author Bio: MIMI JEAN PAMFILOFF is a New York Times bestselling author who’s sold over one million books around the world. Although she obtained her MBA and worked for more than fifteen years in the corporate world, she believes that it’s never too late to come out of the romance closet and follow your dreams. Mimi lives with her Latin lover hubby, two pirates-in-training (their boys), and their three spunky dragons (really, just very tiny dogs with big attitudes) Snowy, Mini, and Mack, in the vampire-unfriendly state of Arizona. She hopes to make you laugh when you need it most and continues to pray daily that leather pants will make a big comeback for men.
… and boy is it amazing fun. Whilst technically part of an ongoing series this could be read as a stand alone, since the author fills in any backstory that is needed. However I do think reading all 3 books will result in the best reading experience. These books are a wonderfully, zany smoosh up of paranormal, adventure, romance, suspense, humour and general weirdness. It’s a cozy mystery taking one heck of an LSD trip.
“What the devil is a machoron?” “You. A macho moron.”
Michael and Lula
Michael continues to bemuse with his strange mixed up personality. Sometimes geek, other times sexist caveman and always hopeless male.
The hairs on the back of my neck stand straight up, looking for a fight. Yes, even my hairs are fighters. I am quite manly like that.
His life continues to be ruled by his librarian(I had a feeling there was more to her than we knew) and his small blue electric car.
“Oh, you’re such a pussy.” “Am not.” I am the Executioner. Or was. I fear nothing except tiny blue cars.”
I felt we got to know Marian a lot more in this book, and I definitely liked what I saw. So did Michael, resulting in some very tented pants! We also get to not only see more of Nice, Lula and Viviana but also learn some startling truths about them. Trying to solve the mysteries in this is like trying to solve one of those ball-in-the-hole dexterity puzzles. You can get a couple of the pieces in place but then some catastrophe occurs and you have to start again.
Talking of Nice, that man (sorry vampire) is just too funny for words. He is so well described, so perfectly crafted I can clearly picture, and hear, him. I sort of picture a camp young Iggy Pop! I loved the role he played in this book, including the spanner in the works at the end! (You’re not going to want to miss THAT twist!)
The crotch of his pants is so tight we can see everything. Two golf balls and a flashlight.
I was really pleased that the ongoing backstory was neatly tied up in this book, though how MJPkept all those various strands and loops in order left me in awe. The plot is breathtaking, intriguing, amusing, emotional and steamy (yay!), goodness knows how she managed to dream it all up! The story ends with a fairly mild cliff-hanger, I can’t wait to see what troubles befall Michael next. I will definitely be continuing with this series, the characters are just too good to give up!
“What were you saying about men being wrong all the time?” She shrugs. “Even a broken clock is right twice in a day.”
Genre: Paranormal humorous MYSTERY, with romantic elements
From New York Times Bestseller Mimi Jean Pamfiloff comes an uncomfortably hilarious Mystery with a heaping help of sexual frustration, THE LIBRARIAN’S VAMPIRE ASSISTANT, Book Three. (Yep! It’s a STAND-ALONE. But why not read them all because…fun!)
FALLING IN LOVE WITH A LIBRARIAN JUST CAN’T GET MORE AWKWARD…
Michael Vanderhorst is not your usual vampire. For starters, he works in a library, is in love with Miriam, his hot nerdy human boss who has no clue what he is, and he looks like a college student.
In reality, Michael is an ancient deadly vampire, an ex-assassin, and is currently the de facto king of his kind ever since their ruling party disappeared. To where? He doesn’t know, but if he wants his life back, he’ll have to find out. (Mystery!) Especially because a civil war is brewing, and being king makes his librarian a mark for his enemies. She is, after all, his biggest weakness.
With a global uprising about to explode, Michael must give her the protection of his army. Only one problem: She must become his queen first. But every attempt he makes to tell her the truth is met with extreme hostility. “Vampires aren’t real. That’s crazy talk, Michael!” Clearly, the topic frightens her.
With time running out and her life on the line, Michael is left with one option: Marry her. Without her knowing.
Can he pull it off? And what will happen when the fight comes to their door?

From New York Times Bestseller Mimi Jean Pamfiloff comes a Horribly Sunny Mystery,
The Librarian’s Vampire Assistant.
NOBODY MESSES WITH HIS LIBRARIAN. . .
Who killed Michael Vanderhorst’s maker? It’s a darn good question.
But when the trail brings Michael to hellishly sunny Phoenix, Arizona, his biggest problem soon becomes a cute little librarian he can’t seem to stay away from. He’s never met a bigger danger magnet! Even her book cart has it out for her. And is that the drug cartel following her around, too?
“Dear God, woman! What have you gotten yourself into?”
Things go from bad to worse when local vampires won’t play nice.
Can this four-hundred-year-old vampire keep his librarian safe and himself out of hot water?
Can he bring his maker’s killer to justice?
Yesterday, he would’ve said yes. But yesterday, he didn’t have a strange connection with a librarian. Yesterday, people weren’t trying to kill her.
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 😉.
The Immortal Matchmakersbooks 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 MJPlikes 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
