The Accidental Werewolf:
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...
Dakota Cassidy is a distinctive and creative writer who utilizes humor whenever she can. Her comic and snarky remarks kept me laughing throughout the book and I felt the pace flowed smoothly and quickly, with just a hint of suspense to notch up the tension factor. Dakota made her werewolf lore believable and enjoyable to read. Her twists and turns kept me turning pages until the very end. I do admit in the very beginning Marty's obsession with Color Wheels and her kinda pushy attitude towards selling cosmetics got on my nerves a bit. But as I got to know her, I began to really like Marty as a person. She is a successful and independent woman, and when her body starts changing after being bitten by a strange dog, she is adamantly against believing something strange is happening. When alpha male, Keegan, shows up at her door explaining that he was the "dog" that accidentally bit her when she was saving her teacup poodle from his jaws, Marty is still unbelieving....That is until she gets angry and sprouts a tail! (This had me giggling non-stop.) After being kidnapped and follows Keegan home for his protection, where sparks really begin to fly between them. Marty becomes more accepting of the changes in her life and the new role she will play in Keegan's family, but things are made even more difficult by certain pack members that don't want Marty to be with Keegan. There are also those that believe a human-turned-werewolf is simply unnatural and don't want her to be in the pack at all. While her career at Bobby Sue Cosmetics is temporarily put on hold, it seems that certain people in the company are not too enthusiastic to see her return. And a surprising twist with an unknown family connection could change Marty's life forever.
