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

My rating:


A vampire puts the bite on a dental assistant.

It's a lousy first day on the job for Nina Blackman when a patient, loopy from the anesthesia, bites her. At least he was cute. But for real drama she can't beat the next evening. Nina wakes up with a set of razor-sharp fangs, bionic vision, supersonic hearing, and a taste for blood. But there's a good explanation: It's her patient, Long Island vampire Greg Statleon. Actually they're perfect for each other—if Nina's willing to commit to one man for eternity.

My Thoughts:
Accidentally Dead is the second installment in the Accidental Friends series by the hilarious Dakota Cassidy. I randomly picked up Accidental Werewolf(book 1) not to long ago, and boy was it good. This book is the same, if not better. It's face paced and the characters are written great and down right hilarious. Nina was introduced in Accidental Werewolf as Marty's pain in the butt new friend from Bobby Sue Cosmetics. And this time around, she only gets worse. But I say that lightly. She's a fun strong willed and determined character, but she may be a bit out spoken. There's speaking your mind, and then there's Nina. But we love her for it.

In Accidental Werewolf, three friends(Marty, Wanda and Nina) were introduced to the supernatural world, when Marty was bitten by a werewolf. Realizing there are more out there then they believed came as a shock to all of them. But on Nina's first day at her new dentist job, she finds out for sure that vampires due in fact exist as well, considering she just got fanged in her hand and wakes up dead. Literally.
Nina as a human = Cranky. Nina as a unwilling vampire = a whole other story. She vows to hunt down the blood sucker who did this to her and get changed back. But then she finds it's harder then she thought, and after meeting Gregori, the handsome vampire who turned her, she will do anything to change back.

This series is a must. It's light, and funny but filled with surprises and suspense. I laughed my butt off reading Nina and Gregori's toe to toe arguments. Each one is strong willed and doesn't take crap from nobody. I think Nina truly met her match. Handsome, rich, funny and stubborn. Oh, and did I say handsome? He's sexy alright. But no man will woe Nina, will they?

Books in this series in the order they should be read:
The Accidental Werewolf
Accidentally Dead
The Accidental Human
Accidentally Demonic

This is a series I put on my wishlist about a month ago when I first saw the cute covers and read the funny blurb. I can't wait to get my hands on this series and see for myself the funny writing style of Dakota Cassidy, these books sound really good!

Thanks for the great review, I'm even more eager to read them than before! :-)
