When mild-mannered Casey Schwartz wakes up in jail, she has no memory of how she got there. But after her sister Wanda bails her out, Casey has more to deal with than a foggy memory - like abrupt mood swings and fireballs shooting from her fingertips. But things really head south when a vampire shows up on her doorstep.

Vampire Clayton Gunnersson is seriously hot. And seriously taken - by a demon. In a ritual gone wrong, Clayton tried to get rid of his unwanted bond, but spilled some demonic blood on Casey, getting her possessed in the process. Now, Casey has to share her body and manage to keep her growing attraction to Clayton in check, because falling for her demon's boyfriend just might get Casey killed - from the inside out.

After not finishing book 3, The Accidental Human because I just didn’t like the main characters, Wanda & Health I skipped to Accidental Demonic in hopes I’d like it more. Well the main character is Wanda’s little sister, Casey and there was more Wanda in it that I liked so I stopped the audio.

But then I thought I’m going to give Accidental Demonic a second chance. Yeah there was more Wanda than I liked but I got over it and starting liking Casey in spite of her sister. Plus I liked Casey’s love interest, Clayton a lot more than Wanda’s.

I really enjoyed Casey. She’s like the nicer and less crass version of Nina. Clayton is a sexy vamp. I liked them together as a couple. After seeing the last three heroines deal with being accidentally turned into werewolf, vampire and a were/vamp we get to follow them help Casey deal with her accidentally being turned into a demon.

I also loved that the Bobby Sue makeup thing is over now. I have higher hopes for the next book, Accidentally Catty.

While the series has not blown me away yet I feel like that’s due more to the narration than the writing. I’m coming to the conclusion that Meredith Mitchell narrations is not working for me. I was hoping that she would grow on me but she has not. I think she’s what keeping me from really enjoying the series. Which is a shame since I have the next 3 books on audio from the publisher. I’m going to power through them so I can start reading the series and then I’ll know for sure if it’s a case of the wrong (for me) narrator.  But since I’m having a hard time enjoying the narration I’m going to take a little break from this series and space those 3 audiobooks out so that the narration doesn’t sour my thoughts on the story, characters and writing.

What I liked: The humor and “pot shots” at vampire romance novels. Nina was led by Wanda and her PNR books.  All of the references to vampire romances had me laughing because I’ve read them all. I love that Dakota can poke fun at a genre that she writes. Nina is like an M&M, she has a hard shell with a soft center. Her coping mechanisms from having her mother leave her over and over as child is to not let anyone in. She uses her potty mouth and sarcasm as tools to push people away. She doesn’t do long term relationships with men and she doesn’t do friendships. Until Marty and Wanda entered her life. And they see through her BS and calls her […]

What I liked: The humor and mystery. Dakota Cassidy is a funny lady in person and some of her humor shined through in The Accidental Werewolf.  If you’re in the mood for a funny romance with a heroine that gets accidentally turned into a werewolf and loves selling cosmetics door to door then you’ll love Marty. What Didn’t Quite Work For Me: The sex scenes were not as hot as they could have been. Between the writing and narration they were like listening to someone reading an owner’s manual. It was a shame really. Marty and Keegan had a hot make out scene in the barn but once it came to the real sex it was all non dialogue. She did this, he did that. […]
