Current Reading Mood: Urban Fantasy
Quote of the day: “I’d have been dead a long time ago if not for my friends, one of whom had just jumped off the cliff after me.
I’d have been a lot more appreciative if he hadn’t pushed me first." Cassandra Palmer ― Hunt the Moon by Karen Chance

The Accidental Werewolf by Dakota Cassidy

The Accidental Werewolf (Accidental Friends, Book 1) The Accidental Werewolf by Dakota Cassidy


When Marty Andrews gets bitten by a mangy mutt while walking her teacup poodle, her blond hair darkens, the hair on her legs starts growing at an alarming rate, and her mood swings put her dream job as a sales rep for Bobbie-Sue Cosmetics in serious jeopardy. Then a drool-worthy man shows up at her door claiming that he accidentally bit Marty. And since he's a werewolf, she is now, too. Thinking Keegan Flaherty is clearly insane, Marty refuses to believe a word until a kidnapping makes her realize there's more at stake than just her highlights. And she must put her out-of-control life in the hands of the man who makes her blood run wild in more ways than one..

My thoughts:
This is the third time reading this book, and it's still as funny as the first time I read it. I'm adding to my review since I read it again for BBA this month. I can't add too much more, because just like before, I loved it and already ranted about my glee reading it. I can add more about Martys cute teacup poodle, Muffin though...What a loyal dog, huh? In the attempt of protecting Marty from a "large dog" who was distracted by Marty’s scent, he ends up attached to the "large dogs" lip. When Marty attempts to pry Muffin off the "large dog's" lip, the "large dog" accidentally bites her, just scratch on her hand, but not long after all hell breaks loose! (I can't belive I said "Large dog"...5 times in a few sentences... lol" LARGE DOG! 6!

On to the review:

The Accidental Werewolf is the first installment in the Accidental Friends series by the hilarious Dakota Cassidy. It's absolutely genius. It's a great paranormal-chick-lit read. It will keep you glued on your seat until the end.

Marty is the protagonist of the story and it's told in the first person, but we also get good amount of the first person view on
Keegan. Marty starts out as such a proper, well put together, yet sort of an annoying follower of the Bobby-Sue Cosmetics. A 'dumb blond' if you will. But then she gets bitten.
After the accidental bite( which happened due to her cute dog Muffin aka Princess, being overly protective)her temper flares and her patience is short.
She starts to get mood swings and temper attacks and to be honest, she was down right hilarious. She has a mouth on her like a sailor and I wouldn't want it any other way. She truly made me "lol" and giggle to myself. I really like the relationship she has with both Keegan and her friends.
Besides being amazing for her character interaction and humorous scenes, Cassidy really knows how to make an interesting and well thought out plot. Even with all the humor it was still a great suspense. Who attacked Marty? Who's behind the attacks?
Right up until almost the end I was questioning who the trouble maker was.

This book has it all, romance, comedy and suspense.
Besides the appealing main characters, I'm very happy the secondary characters are in the next books with their own stories. While reading the book I was very much hoping to hear more of Marty's friends. Which we will the the next few books of this series.
In a nut shell, this book was a really great 'light' read. If you love paranormal and a good laugh, this is the book for you.
I'm looking forward to reading the rest of this series!
