Overview

Nina always loved the nightlife.
 
It’s a lousy first day on the job for dental assistant 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 when she wakes up with a set of razor sharp fangs, bionic vision, super-sonic hearing, and a taste for blood. There must be a good explanation. There is. It’s her patient, Greg Statleon.
 
She just never expected to be the nightlife.
 
A visit to his Long Island castle hardly results in a cure. Greg claims there isn’t one. Unfortunately, Nina isn’t wild about her lifestyle change—or the danger that goes along with it. She’s determined to prove this infuriating vampire wrong. It’s a shame he’s so irresistible. It’s a bigger shame that he’s dead. On the other hand, they’re perfect for each other—if Nina’s willing to commit to one man for eternity…

    Following the recent conversion of her Buffalo friend Marty Andrews into THE ACCIDENTAL WEREWOLF, Hackensack dental assistant Nina Blackman knows there are some strange things out there. She just never expected someone¿s overbite to cause her a problem of sorts at the office. While prepping the patient Gregori ¿Greg¿ Statleon for dentist Dr. Berkenstein, under anesthesia he accidentally bit her and turned her into an undead. Marty and their third pal Wanda rush to Hackensack to help their friend fang face who thinks at least she does not have tail issues.-------------- She is his first (and he prays Last) conversion. He is chagrined and unable to take back his bite, but irate Nina¿s acerbic diatribe accompanied by her two friends leaves him feel as if ¿Snaggletooth¿ took two pints of blood from him. Greg swears he will mentor her on all things vampiric while her pals offer support. However, the dentist with suddenly large canines wants to revert back to human although she would not mind snacking on Greg.------------------ The sequel to amusing THE ACCIDENTAL WEREWOLF is an enjoyable humorous satire that takes a bite out of the vampire romance sub-genre. The story line is fast-paced from the moment the woman from the Bronx calls her recently changed Lycan friend to shuffle from Buffalo to Jersey as she now has a biting problem. Fans will appreciate the non stop hilarity as Nina rips skin with her tongue from everyone even while she and Greg fall in undead love.----------- Harriet Klausner

    This book was an outragously funny novel that had me from page one until the end. The main character, Nina, is raunchy and her unique swear word combinations made me laugh out loud. Her two best friends: one a beauty consultant and the other a reluctant werewulf go to help her find out how to change things back. The vampire, Greg, is also adorable and he is easy to fall in love with. This book helped me to keep my mind off everything, and I can not wait to read her next book.

    A delicious romp into paranormal love

    I just plain loved this book and 'The Accidental Werewolf'!! You just can't read one without reading the other. Loved the banter with all the characters Nina with her friends and Nina with Greg. I thought there were places where she 'thought' a bit too much and it was kind of drawn out but all in all, a fantastic read. Can't wait til Wanda's story comes out...at least I hope it's coming!!!

    Good idea, badly written

    I tried to read this book twice but just couldn't get into it. The characters act like teenage brats and supposedly are friends but all they do is yell at each other. Was disappointed. I would give it away but the language is so bad that It is not appropriate for a teenager. Don't buy this book, go to the library if you are interested.

    Could Have Been Better

    First of all, I have to say that I loved the first book - The Accidental Werewolf. Unfortunately, the writer copied her first story and gave it a new title. Because I'm a sucker for any paranormal romance, I still enjoyed the story. However, I would have appreciated a little creativity in the plot which might have resulted in a different book. Not to mention the character has some seriously outrageous character flaws, which I thought were a little over board. I hope the third book is a lot better.

    Funny and Sexy

    I loved this book it was hilarious and sexy. The only negative thing I have to say about it, is that the main charcter is hilarious but also very very stubborn so after awhile you are like just give in woman! Other than that it is a great book and I am buying the others in the series!

    Annoying

    Nina Blackman may just be one of the most annoying female characters in the history of fiction. She was enough to make me quit 80 pages in. She's irrational and whereas being a potty mouth might be vaguely charming, her lack of creativity and excessive rage just made her plain annoying. She never shuts up and yet manages not to say a single interesting thing. The dialogue in this book is silly, childish and desperately trying to be funny but fails. For far more pages than necessary, Nina and Marty compete for the title of who can be more annoying and they both win.

    NUMBER OF HEARTS:  4 1/2 REVIEW:   Nina Blackman is no stranger

    NUMBER OF HEARTS:  4 1/2
    REVIEW:  
    Nina Blackman is no stranger to the paranormal.  Not after the wild ride she went on with her friend Marty.  But waking up as a vampire is too much for Nina.  She is determined to find a way to become human again.  Now to find the vampire who turned her. 

    This was another great story from Ms. Cassidy.  I enjoyed Nina’s crazy story.  I will say that I didn’t care much for Nina and her smart mouth in The Accidental Werewolf (bk 1).  But as Accidentally Dead went on  I really grew to like Nina.  There is a whole lot more to Nina then just her tough guy act and her smart-ass mouth.   And Greg!!  Greg is the perfect solution for Nina.  Beyond perfect!  I love their fights and make ups.  I love that Nina always has one more questions.  I can’t wait to see these two in future books.   

    I am looking forward to book 3 Wanda really needs a little HEA!!

    I listened to this book on audio.  Ms. Mitchell did a great job again bring the characters to life again.   I often wonder what narrators think when they are narrating books.  I would guess that Ms. Mitchell had a great time being Nina and all her foul mouth  and easily angered persona.

    I absolutely LOVED the first book in this series, which made me

    I absolutely LOVED the first book in this series, which made me think i would love the second book too. Unfortunately i didn't, I'm not sure if it was just because i felt the book kept repeating itself or because Nina just isn't a very likeable character. Maybe it was just me but i thought the book was very dry. Or maybe i just loved the first book so much that this one just didn't compare. If you can find the book at your local library or borrow it from a friend who bought it i think its worth a read. But I'm glad i didn't spend the $7.99 on it.

    Loved it

    I love this series. I read them out of order so didnt get to ninas story until after wandas but i think it flowed better that way. Nina is the loud pottymouth of the group and doesnt takw change well, especially when she has no choice in it. A character that couldve been hard to empathasize with. But cassidy showed the layers of nina and how she grew up to be tue woman she is. The initial circumstances of the story are similair to martys story - in that shes accidently bitten, but each womans journey to acceptance of their irreversible condition and finding love is different.

    Wish it had been better, a struggle to finish

    It was a struggle to finish this book given the main character's constant foulmouthed trash talk and aggressive attitude. I couldn't relate to her in any way and found it unfathomable that such an insecure, angry person would have an eternally happy ending with a vampire hunk. This is at the bottom on the love/romance meter. The dialogue, which I believe the author meant to be witty, is just plain stupid. The words "yummy", "hookay", and "yanno", among MANY others, are used way to much, leaving the reader to believe that the author has a very limited vocabulary. The "heroine" comes off as ghetto trash given her limited ability to express herself with anything other than foul language and ridiculous words as those listed above. The writing is just plain juvenile, and the storyline is nonexistent. 100+ pages wasted on one argument: "heroine" needs blood but refuses she needs it, then admits she needs it, then refuses she needs it, buys it on the black market, goes into anaphylactic shock because it's the wrong type of blood (if only she could have died and ended the story here!!), all interspersed with her desire/hatred for her creator utilizing the ridiculous verbiage of an unintelligent pre-teen girl. I only wish this book had been better, I felt that Cassidy took her first book Accidental werewolf, mix up some characters and turned werewolf into vampire, and bam, whole new book.

    Very Funny! Highly Recommended!

    I read this series out of sequence, but it was okay because the books do not talk too much about the past. I read the third book first. The first two being hard to find unless you order them- my need for instant gratification was squashed. They are worth it, really funny. If you are into the Mary Janice Davidson Elizabeth Taylor books, you'll like these. They're not quite as seamless, but they are pretty close. These books are really good one sitting reads- depending on how fast of a reader you are you can get this book read in an afternoon.

    Loved it!

    I was already in love with the first one, but I just couldn't wait to get to know Nina and I wasn't disappointed. I couldn't put it down. I even took it to work with me, to read on the downtime. There is never downtime at a pediatric office, but I got in my paragraphs during lunch and breaks. I definitely recommend it to readers of the first book. I'm now on the third of the series and am super excited. If you can buy all the available books now, do it.

    more from the series please

    I loved this book I read them all Dakota is a great writer. Nina curses alot, her friends are a bit annoying and I LOVE GREG. I would read this book again. Oh by the way there is alot of hot scenes so i won't recommend you buy this book if your kid don't know anything about sex or you don't want them too. Wish there were from this series. Great book though.

    Same book new paranormal :(

    well this book was a little disappointing, I had read the accidental werewolf and loved it so I was looking forward to this one. The problem is its the same book except instead of werewolf its vampires. It was the exact same formula for this book: girl get accidently bitten, in return falls in love with the one who bit them, the one who bites has to mate with an undesirable power hungry woman, girl who accidently got bit fights for her man and HEA (happily ever after). Overall it wasent a complet waste of time but I expected more.
