When Marty Andrews gets bitten by a mangy mutt while walking her teacup poodle, her blond hair darkens, the hair on her legs starts growing at an alarming rate, and her mood swings put her dream job as a sales rep for Bobbie-Sue Cosmetics in serious jeopardy.

Then a drool-worthy man shows up at her door claiming that he accidentally bit Marty. And since he's a werewolf, she is now, too. Thinking Keegan Flaherty is clearly insane, Marty refuses to believe a word until a kidnapping makes her realize there's more at stake than just her highlights. And she must put her out-of-control life in the hands of the man who makes her blood run wild in more ways than one...

For the first couple of pages I was wondering “what kind of a novel is this?”. Colour wheels, and Bobbie-Sue? It took me a bit to get past those first couple of pages. But, thankfully I did, but this book was surprisingly better than expected. I very much so expected a bubble light read, and in some ways it was, but most of the time it was filled with emotion, drama, romance, and adventures. Obviously I need to stop judging book by their covers because this one is very misleading. I didn’t really like Marty at first because I thought she was very superficial, but when the ‘changes’ start to occur in her I started to like her. I liked her feisty attitude and desperation to grab onto anything that was normal. And then there is Keegan. Its weird but I pictured both these characters differently at first and they changed very quickly into something more appealing. With Keegan I pictures a more gentleman like figures that was a big older. I’m not sure hot explain it, but just something that wasn’t very personable and relatable. Perhaps that was how he was supposed to come off. Well that doesn’t matter, what does matter is that he changed for the better after the first chapter! I fell in love with this story and with these characters and I’ve already picked up the next book in the series. Good: The plot—there were some interesting twists and turns at the end that I didn’t see coming. Marty—Definitely developed into someone I started to like Keegan—A very appealing, heavy on the appealing, werewolf. Bad:  It was a little difficult to get past the first chapter, some of it came across boring but it was all background info. Overall (Writing style, story line, and general): Overall this story was very enjoyable and I didn’t expect it to be so good. I found it very easy to read, although I had to get past some of the boring bits in the beginning, and I never really had to re-read anything to understand it. In fact, I found myself flying through it once I really got into it. It was passionate, adventurous, and humorous all rolled into one.

I read this book over the weekend and laughed throughout the whole thing. I loved the fact that the main character was quirky and independent. It gave the impression that you can be nice, work hard, and not be a stone cold B. I look forward to reading the next book, which I started today!

Bobbie Sue Cosmetics saleswoman Marty Andrews works very hard to be the best. She is rapidly climbing up the ladder of success until she was bitten by a mutt while walking her teacup poodle. Now, she has lost control of her temper ready to literally bite off heads, her hair has darkened, and worse, she spots a tail.------------- Desperate she seeks the mangy mutt who bit her to learn what she caught since it is not rabies or mad cow disease. Instead Keegan Flaherty comes to her home to apologize for biting her. He insists he is a werewolf and not a mangy mutt who could not resist taking a nip of her she assumes he is a lunatic albeit she agrees he is not a mangy mutt. He tries to convince her to join his pack, but she continues to believe he is a lunatic, albeit a hunk too. He struggles to persuade her that he can mentor her on life as a full moon howler, but would one trust a lunatic although considering she was almost a hundred percent vegan, she has become a meat lover especially blood raw and is no longer worried about clogged arteries.------------ This chick lit werewolf romance is a lighthearted romp starring a woman who has to revise her goal now that she has been bitten. The changing relationship between Marty and Keegan is humorously filled with double entendres that are sexually and wolfishly biting. Although the heroine¿s asides distract from a fun story line, paranormal romance will enjoy Dakota Cassidy¿s entertaining tale with an alpha twist.-------------- Harriet Klausner

Marty Andrews is climbing her way on the Bobbi-Sue Cosmetics company rep ladder and nothing is going to stop her; well, maybe one little thing. When on a walk trying to mentor her two under reps, Wanda and Nina, Marty’s little dog attacks a very, very large dog. In the process of saving Muffin (who hardly needs saved), Marty is bitten. What happens in the following week changes Marty’s future, because that very large dog was not a dog, but a werewolf. Marty never really had friends and Bobbi-Sue was her life, so how does she deal with Keegan Flaherty who is trying to convince her that he’s responsible for her since he accidentally bit her and now the Bobbi-Sue way of life will never be the same because she is now a werewolf. This audio book is humorous, adventurous, in part erotic, and wonderfully narrated by Meredith Mitchell. I enjoyed this first in Dakota Cassidy’s series and will look for more.

The Accidental Werewolf by Dakota Cassidy was definately a different style read for me. Were do I begin? The main character has got to be the most immature 30 year old I have ever read about. She acts more like 16. I mean come on "Pinky Promise"? Really! I think the plot for the book was alright but my annoyance with the female lead character Marty made me roll my eyes and wonder why I was still reading this book. I had heard Dakota Cassidy was a good writer. Well if her other books are anything like this one, I won't be reading anymore of her works. I actually felt sorry for the lead male character. I had such pity for him that he had to somehow fall for Marty. Not my cup of tea I am afraid. I can't honestly recommend this one.

Right next to MaryJanice Davidson and Christopher Moore that are known for their humor in their stories, comes Dakota Cassidy's book that is well-written and full of humor. In the book we meet Marty, who is a Bobbie-Sue sales rep and very into her color wheels. Well, one night her color wheels are thrown off their axis when she is bit by what she thinks is a mangy mutt. After noticing some strange changes, Keegan shows up at her door, trying to tell her that he bit her and that she is now a werewolf. Marty is a smart girl, witty and can be a pain in the ass. Keegan, although patient with her, helps her through her transition along with trying to figure out who is behind the kidnappings. And we come to laugh at Marty, as she pokes fun at her 'somewhat' tail that she seems to grow when she gets mad, especially when it comes to her friend, Nina and of course, the happenings at Bobbie-Sue Cosmetics!This book will make you roll on the floor laughing, with all of the quips and quirks of Marty and the craziness that is going on in her life. Dakota Cassidy has here a funny, sweet and sexy love story.

Not bad, but not memorable either. The book is pretty easy to get through, but the characters seem to fall a little flat. A book to put on the to-read list for those who like the paranormal chick-lit genre, but it probably wouldn't make it on a list of favorites.

When Mary Kay-esque cosmetic saleswoman Marty Andrews gets accidentally bitten by a huge dog, her lovely, goal-oriented, color-wheel-organized life takes a turn for the dramatic. From celebrating making lavender suit level in Bobby Sue Cosmetics, the staunch vegan starts craving steak -- rare & bloody, and to make matters worse, she's losing her bubbly, happy, perky sales-sales-sales personality! Of course, who could blame her, what with having to shave her legs twice a day, and her professionally streaked and highlighted blond hair suddenly turning mud brown! When huge and hunky Keegan Flaherty appears on her doorstep claiming that he's the "dog" that bit her, and she's now a werewolf, Marty's state of denial is epic. Unfortunately, he's not about to go away.A bubble-gum read, but not in a bad way. Marty's character is reminiscent in Katie MacAlistar's Aisling Grey or MaryJanice Davidson's Fred the Mermaid.

Late one night Bobbie-Sue Cosmetics rep, Marty Andrews, is bit on the hand by what she thinks is a huge scruffy looking dog. A few days later she learns the truth¿ that was no dog. It was Keegan Flaherty in his were form and now Marty is a werewolf, too. In order to make the transition a little smoother for Marty, Keegan tries to convince her to stay with him and the rest of the pack but Marty stubbornly refuses to believe him. Then she gets knocked out and kidnapped and after escaping from the kidnappers Marty has no choice but to follow Keegan home while they try to figure out who is out to get her.Marty quickly learns Keegan is the head of the rival Pack Cosmetics and after sparks start to fly between them she also learns that Keegan is destined by the Lunar Council to mate with the skinny but beautiful Alana. Things just keep going down hill from there when she discovers who is behind the plan to get rid of her permanently. The book had a very slow start but I so love reading these ¿lighter¿ paranormals that I gave it a chance and kept reading. Once Marty finally accepted that she was a werewolf the story picked up and the rest of it was good enough to make up for the so-so beginning. There¿s a little bit of humor, a little bit of suspense and a little bit of a hot romance that all come together in the end and I¿m definitely going to give book two in the series a try. Hopefully Cassidy will pick up the pace and get to the meat of the story a little quicker. I recommend this one for fans of light paranormals like MaryJanice Davidson¿s Queen Betsy series.

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 :) (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 :) 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!

My Thoughts...When I first started this book, I did not connect to Marty in anyway. I thought she was a little vacuous and her quest to climb the Bobbie Sue hierarchy of colour wheels didn¿t strike me at all. But the more I read, the more I fell in love with Marty as a character.Marty is on her way to climbing the colour wheel hierarchy at door-to-door make-up sales company Bobbie Sue. She¿s just landed the coveted role of lavender (so in her colour wheel) and has two new associates under her wing to train, albeit slightly uncooperative and lacking enthusiasm. But Marty won¿t let this get the better of her and takes it all in her stride.That is until one night she attempts to rescue her dog Muffin from the teeth of a rather large dog. Keegan Flaherty turns up on her doorstep days later claiming he is in deed the dog that bit her and that she is too, like him, a werewolf.Marty refuses to believe that she¿s become a werewolf, even if her hair has changed colour and she¿s going through razors at a dime a dozen.It¿s not until someone decides to throw her into the trunk of their car, and she comes to realize things are not quite all right does she turn to Keegan for help and realizes life is not what it used to be.The book actually opens up after the event and I was a little confused for a bit thinking I¿d missed something completely. But all is explained a little later on through Marty¿s recollection of the past weeks events.Final Thoughts¿I don¿t usually like my PNR mixed with comedy, it doesn¿t sit well with me and it doesn¿t always work. But Dakota Cassidy has managed to pull it through here. Though there were moments that I felt were a little cliché, I took it all with a pinch of salt. I was far too involved with the story to care.I definitely think this is a book I¿d pick up again and read! In fact, as soon as I was done I ran out to buy the next in the series, Accidentally Dead and can¿t wait to sink my teeth into it (no pun intended lol)If you like some light hearted PNR with a dash of comedy and contemporary romance then the Accidental Series might be right up your street. I urge you to grab a copy and give it a go! I dare you not to fall for Keegan, even if he is somewhat stubborn!

Ok, I'll admit it...I never had any interest in reading this book. Every time I saw the cover, I just figured it was some hooky and uninteresting cliched story. I. was. wrong. I decided to read it randomly the other night because I had just finished another series as was looking for a new one. I loved this book so much! Sure, the story has been done somewhat before. But then again, it's damn near impossible for there to be a truly original idea for a story anyways. Even though I recognized many of the plot devices from other novels, the author did a great job in still making it an interesting and unique story. I LOVED Marty. She was both annoying and entertaining, it was freakin fantastic! Keep in mind though, there really isn't a lot of character development at all. The characters are all fairly one dimensional. That being said, this was a FUN read. It was a great way to get out of my headset of constantly cleaning the house and chasing kids . I definitely plan on reading the next book in the series!

I dont like leaving bad comments, more I consider them possible identifiers that can be improved upon. For example, Martys attitude...shes quirky and a bit funny, but VERY unlikable, I do not think she said even one decent thing to the guy, it is constant sarcasm. No guy would want that, so no chemistry there at all yet and Im halfway through the book. I like the story line and thats its a fun read, but she is nasty, almost as nasty as the jealous woman in the story. Im hoping for less sarcasm as I go. So far the ONLY good quality she has is she cant lie well and shes work driven. But the story needs way way way less sarcasm everything out of her mouth is sarcastic and nasty sounding. Her friend Nina is worse but instead if pure sarcasm its just outright nasty, biyotch remarks. Nothing nice ever came out of her mouth. Her only endearing quality was her protectiveness of her friend. I dont like to give a "bad" review so there are good qualities, the hero is very likable and has the patience of a saint for dealing with her sarcasm. The sarcasm is definitely funny in some parts, just way too much sarcasm takes away from the story and it is not funny any longer when its the main character. I still say buy it, because everyones tastes are different, some like super sarcastic heroines. I personally think its way over the top. But please give it a try, its still a nice light fun read.
