Ixtab is the Goddess of Suicide—a totally bogus title for a woman who just wants everyone to be happy. Unable to touch anyone without them offing themself, she’s condemned to a lonely existence. Now she’s sent to help a physicist unlock the secrets of a tablet the gods need to stop the end of the world. Unfortunately Antonio is a dead ringer for the man Ixtab loved, and accidentally killed, two hundred years ago. Yet she can touch him without killing him. An accident nearly kills Antonio. The only fix is to turn him into a vampire—a monster. Now he wants nothing to do with the snarky female who ruined all his plans. But he also can’t keep away from her.
First, I read “Accidentally In Love with a God” right before this one (that was book one in the series, and this is book four). This book started off on a humorous note. I loved every time Ixtab went to an AA meeting and gave her spiel. The humor carried through the story, but some spots fell seriously flat or felt forced. This book didn’t have the yo-yoing problems of the last one in the series I’d read, so I didn’t want to strangle the hero for failing to make up his mind. We did have to wait an awful long time for his opinion of her to change, and it was related to seeing her face. That kind of bummed me out. Despite that, there was a fairly good HEA for these two. Still, I can’t bring myself to give Vampires Need Not Apply? more than 3.5* because it's a traditionally published book, and I only “Liked it”, I didn’t “Really Like It”.
