First Thought when Finished: The Accidental Werewolf by Dakota Cassidy was just as fun the 2nd time around!

Original Review circa 2010

What I LOVED: The whole freaking cast of characters. Marty made me giggle, Keegan made me drool, Nina and Wanda were perfect friends, and his family (Sloane and Mira) were fantastic. This was just such a fun read.

What I LIKED: I really liked that nobody was perfect. They all had flaws, issues, things to accept, and they all seemed to work through it. They did so in a way that was very real when dealing with family.

What was So-So/Didn’t Like: Not a darn thing. Ok maybe not enough Nina πŸ™‚ (she is my fav)

Why I gave it a 4: Really it was nice to read a really funny, witty, cute story of boy meets girl, boy bites girl, boy turns girl into werewolf, and they all fall in love πŸ™‚ I would recommend this to any PNR lover that can handle the humor and lightness of a fun romance and also to any chick-lit lover who can handle the supernatural. It is well worth the read!

Review circa 2014

Second Time around thoughts: This was just as fun the 2nd time around! This is one of those books that just leave you with a smile on your face πŸ™‚

Audio Thoughts:

Narrated By Meredith Mitchell / Length: 10 hrs and 14 mins

This is one of those times when reading the book first actually played a part into what I thought of the narration. I thought she was perfect for Wanda, pretty close on Marty, but way off in what I thought Nina sounded like. That being said, I thought the pacing and spunk were very good. I think as I listen to the rest of them, the audio rating will improve.

Final Thoughts: Fun beginning to this series. πŸ™‚

  1. I’ve only read one of Dakota Cassidy’s books (Something About Harry) and I loved it. I need to make time for the earlier books. I’m glad to see that they’re just as awesome. Nina’s pretty cool too.

  2. I do so love books like this. They’re fast and fun and always a good time. The “boy meets girl, boy bites girl, boy turns girl into werewolf, and they all fall in love” cracks me up.

  3. I think you sent me home with some Cassidy books. I better get caught up on reviews & go dig in. I love fun & light & love to laugh.

  4. Okay, I’ll read it! This sounds like a really fun audiobook (and maybe the narration will work better for me since I haven’t read the book first?). I used to stay away from pnr, but it turns out I really like it as long as it’s more cutesy than filled with vampire orgies. Not that there’s a thing wrong with vampire orgies, it’s just I like humor with my romance.

    • I rated the audio a 4 for Book 2. I think she just grew on me and yes I think you will have a better time with it πŸ™‚ I didn’t dislike it in the first book just had to readjust my expectations of characters voices LOL

    • Nina does have a potty mouth and that will never change. However, you can offset her with Wanda who pretty much uses cuss words like “son of a biscuit eater” LOL πŸ™‚

  5. I am reading my first Dakota Cassidy book right now and I have had my eye on this series. I hope to read it soon as I need more light, fluffy and funny.

    • She has snark and I love it. I can always count on her to make me smile. She is a little edgier than Molly Harper but just as fun.
