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.

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Yes - mainly because I LOVE Dakota Cassidy and second because who doesn't love a good laugh or five?

Did the narration match the pace of the story?

No - this narrator didn't really match the book. I have been waiting for these books on audio FOREVER and unfortunately the performance leaves a bit to be desired.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

Laugh you pants off funny

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?

Would you consider the audio edition of Accidentally Dead to be better than the print version?

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.

What did you like best about this story?

I love the work of Dakota Cassidy and Nina is a blast, her reactions to becoming a vampire leave a person laughing.

What does Meredith Mitchell bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Nada - She could have done a way better job

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

I laughed a lot as I do at all Dakota Cassidy "Accidental" books

After a tragic accident scarred her body and destroyed her dreams, Leila never imagined that the worst was still to come: a terrifying ability to channel electricity and to see a person's darkest secrets through a single touch. Leila is doomed to a life of solitude ... until creatures of the night kidnap her, forcing her to reach out with a telepathic distress call to the world's most infamous vampire. Vlad Tepesh inspired the greatest vampire legend of all - but whatever you do, don't call him Dracula.

If you could sum up Once Burned in three words, what would they be?

Strong. Intriguing. Captivating.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Vlad, just because I have liked Vlad in all of Jeanine's books

Have you listened to any of Tavia Gilbert’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

She is very good. In all the other books, I love the way she reads Bones' parts!

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

When Leila and her father made peace with each other.

Any additional comments?

Just a great overall listen. I love all of Jeanine's books.

Heather Westfield has always lived a quiet life, but that all changes when she helps a very handsome, very mysterious stranger. There's something not quite right about Jean-Luc, but still, she's never been with a man so charming, so attractive... so wonderful. Now if only a murderous villain wasn't after them, they might get their happily-ever-after.

I really enjoyed this book and got into the story very easily. This narrator does such a superb job of reading the different accents and she gives Bethany (the little girl) just the right touch. Very enjoyable listening!

If it was still beating. Angus MacKay has been undead for almost 500 years and it's not often something, or someone, surprises him. Until Emma Wallace. The sight of this luscious agent from the CIA's elite Stake-Out team was enough to stop Angus in his tracks. But then he discovers that she's a vampire slayer, intent on killing the "monsters" who killed her parents. And it's Angus's job to stop her.

The only thing I didn't like is that this narrator took a really good book and made it very hard to listen to. Overall this was a very good book and Angus and Emma are two of my favorite Kerrelyn Sparks caracters, very engaging.

Darcy Newhart thought it was a stroke of genius—the first–ever reality TV show where mortals vie with vampires for the title of The Sexiest Man on Earth. As the show's director, Darcy's career would be on track again. And she can finally have a life apart from the vampire harem. Okay, so she's still technically dead, but two out of three's not bad. Now she just has to make sure that a mortal doesn't win. If only she wasn't so distracted by a super-sexy and live contestant named Austin....

I really like Kerrelyn Sparks work but Darcy needs to just get over it, she's a vampire and has been for four years. I think bemoaning that fact every few lines in the book was redundant. Overall, I really liked the book.
