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 otherβ€”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 πŸ™‚

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 πŸ™‚

New Thoughts 2014:

Overall Thoughts: Accidentally Dead by Dakota CassidyΒ  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 πŸ™‚

Audio Thoughts:

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 πŸ™‚

Final Thought: Can’t wait to revisit the next one again πŸ™‚

  1. I have been eyeing this series for quite a while! I was so excited to see a fellow blogger review πŸ™‚ Will definitely reshuffle my TBR pile and give this one a shot. Thanks for spotlighting it and putting it back on my radar πŸ™‚

  2. I have to get to her books & to this series. Christopher Moore-like!! I love to laugh & foul language. I think it will be love at first reading or listening πŸ˜€

  3. I have got to do this series I think in audiobook format. I am always up for something with off the wall humor that will make me laugh so this is a series for me.

  4. I have this one to review on audio as well. Though I am not a fan of Nina’s potty mouth I do like her as a character and she makes me laugh in the one I am listening to I sure when it’s time for her story I will be laughing through the potty mouth. πŸ™‚
