The Accidental Werewolf - Book Review

The Accidental Werewolf (Accidentally Friends #1)
by Dakota Cassidy

What is it about:
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...

What did I think of it:
This is a nice read.

I did have some trouble with Marty at first. She can be quite irritating and it took me some time to get used to her. But once I got used to Marty and the way she narrates I actually started to enjoy her way of looking at things.

Both romance and story were nice, there were some surprises, but mostly it was easy to guess what was going on. It was the humor and snark that kept the story interesting.

So overall this was a nice and entertaining read. I might pick up other books by Cassidy when next I'm looking for something light and funny.

Why should you read it:
It's a snarky and funny Paranormal Romance.

I get a Queen Betsy by MaryJanice Davidson vibe here. Did you read those? Is it similar, but then werewolves instead of vampires?

It's similar in tone, but Queen Betsy is the better of the two in my opinion.

I've read some of these books but stopped after the 3rd ou 4th when I understood it was always the same. Yeah I prefer queen betsy too!

I do love a bit of snark. Glad it worked for you in the end. I have one of these at home. I wanna say Accidentally Catty? Maybe? I'll have to pull it out and check next time I need a light read :)
