It's a lousy first day on the job for Nina Blackman. A patient, loopy from the anesthesia, bites her. At least he was cute. The next morning, 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. Is Nina willing to commit to one man for eternity, even if they are perfect for each other?

"Jumping from one supernatural species to another, Cassidy spins a new and hilarious tale based on another gigantic 'oops' moment." (RT Book Reviews)
No, I can "read" Nina way better than this narrator can. I have been waiting for these books on audio FOREVER and unfortunately the performance leaves a bit to be desired.
I love the work of Dakota Cassidy and Nina is a blast, her reactions to becoming a vampire leave a person laughing.
Nada - She could have done a way better job
I laughed a lot as I do at all Dakota Cassidy "Accidental" books
I absolutely loved this book. It was most excellent. I laughed, cried and couldn't quit listening.
The story pulled you in and kept you there for its entirety and the humor, the humor was a pleasant surprise and done in such good taste that it had me laughing out loud more than once.
The characters were fun and colorful and easily liked. The story was good and well told.
My only complaint was the voice of Greg. The narrator did great with all the voices except his. He sounded pompous and self-centered.. yet his character never once acted that way in the book. So the voice just didn't do Greg justice and at times it irritated me. Oh, and once in awhile Nina's nastiness towards people got to me, but she softened a bit around the edges as the story wore on.. which was a good thing.
If you enjoy paranormal romance you should give this one a try. You won't be sorry.
Well, I am off to buy the next book in the series, See you on the flip side.
This is one of my favorite series. I already have the print books and I'm going to have all of the Audible versions as well. I had forgotten how much I enjoyed Dakota's books. The narrator is doing an awesome job finding the voices for the characters.
The story lines are original and hysterical. Pure entertainment! Just what you need to escape from reality.
The only warning I will give is that there is language in the book that some people may be offended by. I would hate to see bad reviews because someone didn't like it. So, consider yourself forewarned and enjoy!!!
This book ended in the middle of the story. The villian was easily/quickly foiled and Nina never learned and/or explored her new powers. There was so much more that should've been expanded upon but wasn't. That being said, it was otherwise an enjoyable listen that kept me entertained.
NUMBER OF HEARTS: 4 1/2
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 purchased this book from Audible and this review is my own opinion and not a paid review.
I'm only halfway through this book and if it had been the first in the series I would have stopped already. The storyline is ok. Based on the first installment it's what I expected. But the narrators performance of the Greg character...I actually thought it was a part of the joke initially. Like another character's imitation of him. Based on this performance I will always screen other books with this narrator in the future.
Love the entire series.
How can you love Nina with her sassy potty mouth.
Does a great job with the story.
Once I listened to the first book I was hook listened to them all. I hope there will be more.
When I first read the description of the next story in the series, I thought that the characters were going to be all new and I'd miss the old ones a lot! But, I was surprised to find the old characters are still here, still "in character" and just as entertaining as I'd hoped. New characters were added and the narrator makes them all come alive. I don't know if I'd like the series as much if there was a different narrator. This one is very, very good!
