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.

Original Review 2010:
What I Loved: Nina, Nina, Nina! She is my favorite foul-mouthed, say it like it is character. She really is someone who just doesn’t accept something till you whack her over the head with facts. Normally these characters get on my nerves but Nina is so well written that about the time you get to the “ugh shut up” point, she grows on you. Oh and I love Greg too! He was the perfect HEA for her 🙂
What I Liked: Wanda, Marty, Lou, and Svetlanna! What can I say, I think it is the friendship, family, and love that really gel these books together. You can just tell how much Wanda, Marty, and Nina really care for each other. Even when they are uber-mad at each other.
What was So-So/Didn’t Like: Not a darn thing!
Who I would recommend this too: I would recommend this to anyone who likes to laugh. However, if you are sensitive to bad language probably not the book for you. Kind of like Christopher Moore books—you have to like the “off-beat” humor and not give a flip about language to enjoy. If you do however give these books a chance, I guarantee your cheeks will hurt from grinning. They are fantastic 🙂
New Thoughts 2014:
Overall Thoughts: Accidentally Dead by Dakota Cassidy was even better the 2nd time around. I forgot how much I loved Nina and Greg’s love story. It made me laugh, cry, and wish I knew Nina person 🙂
Narrated By Meredith Mitchell / Length: 10 hrs and 35 mins
Meredith grew on me as a narrator and now I really like her. She seemed a lot more comfortable in this one and even though Nina is still not “Jersey” enough, I still enjoyed the narration 🙂
Final Thought: Can’t wait to revisit the next one again 🙂
During her non-reading time you can find her hanging with her rescue furr children named after book characters: Lizzie a beautiful cattle dog mix (Pound Pup), Cinder a beautiful Shep/Pitt mix (Pound Pup), and Minerva a beautiful Shep/Pitt mix (Foster Fail). Gathering with friends and family, attending conventions, watching movies/tv shows, rooting for the 49rs, and crocheting.
