Publisher's Summary

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?

A paranormal party on my iPod!

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!!!

Groundhog day

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

The author kept repeating the formula of Nina and Greg getting close, immediately followed by Nina getting cold feet and stepping back. Repeat and read again. This happened several times and reminded me of the movie Groundhog Day.

What was most disappointing about Dakota Cassidy’s story?

Too much swearing, the middle could have been shortened and more character development would have been nice. The first book in the series had much more substance to it. This was disappointing. I don't know if it was poor writing or poor editing. I am sorry to be so critical. The first book showed wonderful potential if you could get past the cursing. I suffered through slightly less cursing in this book because I expected another clever story. The bones were there, but the execution was lacking.

What do you think the narrator could have done better?

I like the narrator. She did the best she could with this plot.

Could you see Accidentally Dead being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

Oh, I hope not a series. Maybe a made for TV movie.

Any additional comments?

I will be reading book three just because I'm invested in the third female lead. Between the cursing and this poorly edited story, im disappointed.

Wow! Extremely Enjoyable!

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.

You can't always believe bad reviews

I almost didn't continue on with this series because of the bad reviews of a few readers.
Bad language people offended....Oh please.....that's just the way Nina is and if you didn't get that from the first book you didn't listen very well.
I took a chance and was very happy I did. The story is written from Nina's point of view loud obnoxious with a potty mouth! That's Nina get over it!
This continues with the great writing and narrating that the first one did and keeps getting better! Looking forward to the rest of the series.

voices so so

I am sorry but halfway through the book ibstarted to cringe when the narrator was doing the male parts. It did not sou.d or feel right to me as to how I imagined how they would sound. Another aspect of this could be that the dialog for the men was just that bad, but I really think it was a combination of both.

Awesome book

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

Repetition for all

Would you try another book from Dakota Cassidy and/or Meredith Mitchell?

I really loved her Paris New Mexico books that's why these are so disappointing. First they were expensive and then because they were so full of repetitione after repetition after repetion it is very tedious, after a while I just gave up. I'm not buying any more in the series. Two books were too many.

Has Accidentally Dead turned you off from other books in this genre?

Yes

What about Meredith Mitchell’s performance did you like?

She did a really good job considering what she had to work with.

What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

Disappointment

Fun listen

Second installment of this series was really enjoyable. Kept my attention throughout. Looking forward to the next book which is hopefully Wanda's story.

Whiny

I get Nina whining, but her supposed friends seem to keep comparing and constantly telling her to get over it. All of them are whiny.
