Publisher's Summary

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...

I love Cassidy's humor!

Any additional comments?

This was a first time with any of Dakota Cassidy's books. I thoroughly enjoyed her humor. What a great way to end the day with a laugh. Thank you.

Absolulte!

What made the experience of listening to The Accidental Werewolf the most enjoyable?

The narrator was very good

What other book might you compare The Accidental Werewolf to and why?

This book can only be compared to the books in the series. This is one with a new twist and I love it!

Which scene was your favorite?

The whole book.

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

I laughed and cried. cried only because I laughed so hard in places

Any additional comments?

Don't listen to the comments that down grade the book. This is a great Author and all of her books are great. This one in particular was better that the rest, because it had a different twist the ones before it.

Terrible reading, fluffy novel

This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

The book was fine. Decent storytelling but inconsistent characters. One character doesn't go from take charge, able to handle everything to vapid airhead in two seconds

If you’ve listened to books by Dakota Cassidy before, how does this one compare?

N/A

How did the narrator detract from the book?

Odd inflections that took away from the story and dramatic pauses in awkward places. Most of her sentences had a downward inflection at the end like you might hear from a particularly sober priest, a reading of 14th century poetry, or someone reading an obit. Not a romantic comedy audiobook.

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

Disappointment

Can't believe I kept listening...

This book must have been penned by a robot. Or maybe a really sharp chimp with a thesaurus (that was only used twice, I think). And I'm pretty sure this was one of the few times I could not get past a terrible performance - simply because the writing was so, so awful. I'm a big fan of this genre, but this was hands down my worst choice so far.

The characters are 100% one-dimensional, while the narrator had no comic timing, and sounded like she was trying to emulate Siri. Overall, not recommended. I know I will not be purchasing the next volumes in the series, and I want the last 10 hours & 14 minutes of my life back.

Fresh plot!

If you could sum up The Accidental Werewolf in three words, what would they be?

Fresh. Funny. Exciting.

Which character – as performed by Meredith Mitchell – was your favorite?

The heroine.

Any additional comments?

I really liked the storyline. it started out so funny and it stayed funny but then it got intriguing and romantic and sexy and suspenseful.

Too much sex

Another really good plot ruined by too much sex. It's one thing to throw in a sex scene to forward the plot, but this was just filler. Other than the sex and the wanting to jump each other all the time the plot had good promise. Decent characters and a nice twist. A little more effort in dialogue instead of lust and this could have rated much higher.

painfull :(

What would have made The Accidental Werewolf better?

less bubblegum and whining.

Would you ever listen to anything by Dakota Cassidy again?

No.

Did Meredith Mitchell do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

Mitchell did a fair job with the characters.

If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from The Accidental Werewolf?

The first two chapters were painful to suffer through.

Fun story - good narrorator.

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

Took me a couple chapters to get into this narrator (I have been listening to Amanda Ronconi), but by the end I really liked her and am glad she does the rest of the series.

Who was the most memorable character of The Accidental Werewolf and why?

I liked Marty and her friends Nina and Wanda, I thought it was nice to have those relationships. I wish we had more of a Marty back story in the beginning, because it took me a bit to really like her.

Any additional comments?

I started listening to this series because I love the Molly Harper books and this was suggested as a similar series of books. This one was not as witty as the Harper books are, but still fun, sexy and enjoyable.

Too bad

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

The story could have been given more depth. The premise was good but the writer seemed to be distracted by filling with gratuitous scenes rather than develop the story or characters.

Has The Accidental Werewolf turned you off from other books in this genre?

No, I have found others in the genre to offer all this book failed to provide.

Did Meredith Mitchell do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

The narrator did a good job at creating distinctive sounds for the characters.

You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

The characters had great potential but the story wasn't strong enough to carry them through. I liked them enough that I would enjoy seeing them developed but I don't want to waste time or money for what is likely to be a weak effort.

Everything is wrong with this book

Any additional comments?

Everything is wrong with this book. It is one long, sexist stereotype of a strong, independent female. Definitely skip this and save your brain cells.
