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...

The worst lead character ever

I had to make myself finish this book. The lead character is so one dimensional and just a sniveling idiot. It made the book hard to take. Every other word was foul language it seemed. It was honestly the worst paranormal romance that I have ever read. And, I read a lot. Don’t waste your time

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.

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.

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.

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

Tedious

Too much tedious dialogue. Cut out all the silly dialogue by half condense the book by half and you might have a decent light hearted story.

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.

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.
