AMAZING. I love Mimi and her mad mind. Got hooked from start to end with this fabulous crazy love story.~ GoodReads reviewer - Lindsay
Mimi Jean is a master at hooking you into a story so you lose sleep trying to read the whole book in one sitting, laughing until your family thinks you are going crazy, and making you swoon in general for these characters. ~ GoodReads reviewer - Mary goodreads.com/review
About the Author
Although she obtained her international MBA and worked for over 15 years in the corporate world, she believes that it's never too late to come out of the romance closet and follow your dream.
When not screaming at her computer or hosting her very inappropriate radio show (Man Candy Show on Radioslot.com), Mimi spends time with her two pirates in training, her loco-for-the-chili-pepper Mexican hubby, and her rat terrier, DJ Princess Snowflake, in the San Francisco Bay Area.
She continues to hope that her books will inspire a leather pants comeback (for men) and that she might make you laugh when you need it most.

“No worries,” he said, with a slightly accented voice as deep as the ocean and as silky as her black panties. Panties? What panties? Hers had just melted off. – Immortal Matchmakers, Inc. (Book 1 – Andrus)
Mimi Jean Pamfiloff is a paranormal romance (PNR) author that never disappoints. She writes the type of PNR that has readers smiling and laughing one moment, and cursing and making stabby motions the next. I always enjoy the rollercoaster of emotion that her stories take me on, right up until the moment they end. I think all her fans have been especially excited about this newest series, which ties nicely into the fabulous Accidentally Yours series.
Immortal Matchmakers (Book 1 – Andrus) focuses on former assassin Andrus Gray and waitress and aspiring actress Sadie Townsend. Fans will remember Andrus from the Accidentally Yours series, but newcomers need not be concerned – the tale stands alone quite well. Andrus is definitely not your typical dark and dangerous alpha male, but seems to have a little bit more of everything, including ego. Who reads fiction to experience the typical, anyway? We are looking for the abnormal, the unique, and the something different…and this author delivers.
Sadie wanted to kick the man in his beautiful face, but it was way, way up there. The guy was like six six or something. – Immortal Matchmakers, Inc. (Book 1 – Andrus)
Sadie is a waitress working hard to support herself while trying to get her break as an aspiring actress. When things start to sour and it looks like a return home might be in her very near future, an unexpected and strange offer comes from her agent. Coach someone on manners for major bank? Sign her up. Sadie realizes that she will have her hands full the moment Andrus answers his door.
Throw in a bloodthirsty and invisible unicorn, insane gods and goddesses playing matchmaker, and paranormal entities intent on death and mayhem and you have a fantastic beginning to this new series.
It's terribly unfortunate: I want to like this book. It has so many features I was hoping to find. I genuinely like PNR, but the childish language throughout was a turnoff for me. The dialogue is inorganic, and lazy writing repeatedly broke my immersion and rapidly overshadowed the brief moments of good writing (like Andrus discovering that something is not right with his 'teacher' was well done, but not long after the characters reunited, it devolved again.) The twist towards the end of the book kind of lost me, and Cimil's effort at being a character that I might be able to accept for what she's meant to be still seems shallow and forced. It might just be that I need mental stimulation to really enjoy a book, and I feel hollow after reading this- like standing in a room full of chattering teenagers who are talking about nothing.
I may wind up purchasing Tommaso- it seems to have a better premise... I love PNR. I really REALLY want to like this author. What bits of imagery that I could visualize were wonderful, and what snippets I've gathered from the next book seem better, but I'm a little scared of further disappointment.
I had previously read a few of Mimi Jean's Pamfiloff's books, but it's been a couple of years since I picked one up. I chose this book because it was the start to a new series and a great way to get back into her books. However, the fact that it's a new series a little bit misleading because it's set in the same world with many of the same characters as the last set of books.
Although technically this is a standalone book, I strongly suggest you begin reading these books in order (starting with Accidentally Yours). Since it had been so long since I read her first books, it took me a while to remember some of the characters. Without some background, you might not enjoy this book quite as much (and become a little daunted by the sheer number of characters).
The main character, Sadie was very likable. Although, it was hard to get to know her very well with the fast-pace of the book. Her personality didn't really stand out very much. The hero, Andrus, is boorish and abrasive... and lacking any sort of social skills. In all honesty, I was surprised Sadie took such a liking to him immediately.
Overall, this is another decent addition to the Immortal world books with an interesting twist at the end. One thing I enjoy about Mimi Jean's books is that there's usually some sort of weird twist that you just weren't expecting. I love that unpredictability.
Immortal Matchmakers, Inc. is a fast, light, quirky, and fun read that many readers will enjoy. Personally, I enjoyed the first books in the series far more and I'd like to see the author branch out into a new direction, rather than recycle many of the supporting cast from the first books. This book wasn't as memorable with the main plot, but it was fun seeing some of the characters from the previous books. I probably won't be following this series, but I'll definitely keep an eye out for anything else this author has brewing...
