Review: Accidentally… Cimil? By Mimi Jean Pamfiloff




Cimil. Bargain hunter? Philanthropist? Terrorist? Or just plain crazy? Whatever she is, happy isn't one of them.

Roberto the Ancient One, who's had his eye on Cimil for four thousand years, has patiently waited for the day to make her his forever. And to deliver payback for the centuries of humiliation he's endured due to her theatrics. But can Cimil's wild heart and mind ever be tamed?


Who knows? But it's going to fun watching him try.

I was introduced to Mimi Jean’s brilliant stories recently, and fell immediately in love. Funny, full of angst, pain, heartbreak and gods…. I just couldn’t resist! And all through her Accidentally In Love series, there was one character with whom I loved; Yup, it was Cimil.
   She’s funny, smart, egotistical, narcissistic, mysterious... and totally batshit crazy. What’s not to love? Needless to say, I couldn’t wait to find out more about her! And ‘Roberto” her on/off romance, and this novella did not disappoint. It begins before the events of any of the other novels, revealing the origins of Cimil’s crazy. During this time period she meets Narmer/Roberto.
   I admit, I wasn’t sold on him at first. His ego was far, far too big for any normal person to even like him – but then I remembered that Cimil was the heroin of the story, and he fit her perfectly. Throughout the novella he began to grow on me regardless, as the layers of narcissism were pulled back and an actual relationship began to form between the characters.
 All in all I had many laugh out loud moments, a few “oh no he didn’t!” moments and a lot of fun reading Cimil (and her unicorn’s!) story. Finally, we get to learn more about Minky! Seriously, there is a unicorn in this story. Read it if only for that.
  I give it 4/5.
