Twenty-two-year-old Emma Keane has a secret friend. He’s powerful, mysterious, and devastatingly handsome. In her dreams, anyway.

In real life, he’s an enigma. Maybe just a teensie jealous. Definitely overbearing. He’s also a voice only she can hear.

So who or what is he? He won’t say. But if she wants to be free, to be normal, Emma will have to trek to the jungles once ruled by the Mayans and find the forgotten ruin holding the answers.

However, the ruthless deity she’s about to unknowingly unleash on the modern world might not be so easily extracted from her life. Bottom line, he’s got enemies, and now, so does she.

I’ve always been a big fan of Greek and Roman mythology, but for some reason, I’ve never really delved into Mayan mythology. I’m not exactly sure why I avoided the Mayans. Maybe it’s because it’s not as mainstream as other types of mythology. Or maybe it’s because I’ve always been a big fan of the Greeks, and I didn’t bother to learn more about other ancient cultures. Whatever the reason might be, I’m glad I decided to give this novel a chance because it’s an entertaining read.

As I’ve mentioned, I don’t know much about Mayan mythology so I’m not sure if the author stayed true to the original myths and gods. There must be some deviation from the myths since some of the godly characters were very modernized. Their speech was current, and most of the time, they spoke more or less like everyday Americans/Canadians. Also, the Goddess Cimil tended to dress up in pretty modern clothes like fire-engine-red lingerie and black cocktail dresses. Technology didn’t seem to be a problem for these gods either. Mind you, there’s nothing wrong with modern gods, since it’s always easier to associate with characteristics and qualities similar to our own. It just made them seem… less godly, especially since we don’t see them do supernatural things very often.

Usually, it’s the characters that have me loving or liking a book. However, this time around, I had a few difficulties with one in particular. The main character, Emma, was a bit too immature for my tastes and got on my nerves quite a bit. Only twenty-two years old, I admit she’s allowed to have her ditzy moments and mild tantrums but after a few times going back and forth between “I love and I trust him” and “I hate him and he lied to me”, it got annoying. However, she did add humour and comic relief to the story. Her godly love interest, Guy, was originally a little voice in her head that guided and annoyed her throughout her life. That alone is very original, and it’s exactly what attracted me to the story in the first place. Guy, well I can’t really describe him. Obviously, since he’s a god, he’s pretty hot and has a very strong and fierce personality. We learn more and more about him through Emma’s investigations and questioning, but as readers, we learn many things about Guy before Emma does, through flashbacks and point of view changes.

For a self-published book, I was quite surprised by the quality of the writing. The story is very interesting but as I said, the characters could have been better. More details about them might have been useful. Their personalities came off as ordinary but the humour and the quick dialogue more than made up for the small lack of character detail. The story itself had a good and easy flow, and kept me interested throughout my reading. This book guarantees you a great deal of action scenes, impressive settings (Greece, Italy, Mexico… awesome!) and awkward, yet entertaining romantic tensions. The ending was unexpected and guarantees more plot twists in the future but, from what I understand, Emma and Guy’s story will continue in book 3. The second book of the series revolves around a vampire and someone that accidentally falls in love with him… Add Accidentally in Love With… A God? to your TBR pile if you want a quick and fun paranormal romance.

    I like the sound of this from your review. I was quite ditzy when I was 22 so I don’t think Emma would annoy me too much 🙂

  2. Aurian

    It sounds nice, glad you enjoyed it. I have read some books with Mayan mythology, but there are not that many around.
