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?

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.

Using the word "retarded" will NEVER make me laugh

Do NOT waste your time on this audiobook. I am roughly 3 hours in and I cannot listen to another second.

1. I believe it speaks poorly of the character of ANYone (including the author) that believes throwing around the word 'tard' and 'retarded' in an effort to be funny. There was no need. It added nothing to the scene, character, plot, etc. When I heard it for the second time, I was done. I will not be finishing this book. It wasn't worth it even before the use of that language.

2. The characters are under-developed and what there IS of character development leaves me with the impression that ALL of the females are thus: whiny, abrasive, materialistic, weak, unintelligent and TSTL.

Yeah, so...skip this one. It won't take much to find anything better.

5 subtle racists comments later--I'm done

I tried to like this. But by the 3rd chapter, and the 5th subtly racist jibe, I'm done.

It's always about secondary characters, and it's just flavor text. I originally thought it was a character flaw, but by now I'm sure it's an author flaw. None of it is aggressive, it's just all sterotypes-- and I'm OVER it!
