She’s all bottled up.

Jeannie Carlyle is a caterer extraordinaire, more than ready to handle any challenge thrown at her. But when her client asks her to open up a rare bottle of gin for a party, Jeannie is shocked when a guy in poofy pants pops out and she gets sucked inside. Trapped in the bottle, Jeannie does the only thing she can think of and uses her cell phone to se

The Accidental Genie (Accidentally Friends, #7)The Accidental Genie by Dakota Cassidy

My rating: 3 of 5 stars


I have to say it is the least favorite of the series and it was plain bad for like the first 1/3 of the book. It picked up finally around 50% and ended well but my overall impression was forgettable. The first 3 were the best books with no doubt. I have read this series since book #1 came out and have enjoyed them all but the first 3 books were so much better and the next 2 were decent and enjoyable but this one was almost unbearable

It was super cute and fun, as always. Some romance series fall into ruts, churning out books according to formula. I'm always nervous that each new book in this growing series will fall into that trap, but Cassidy knows exactly what she's doing. She keeps each new romance fresh by adding interesting elements and emotional depth to the characters that the reader really cares about, like Phoebe's sister Penny in the last book, or Jeannie's really intense back story in this one. There's a lot more ...more

What did I think? I'll tell you what I thought: I laughed my a$$ off! I should be much lighter weight wise! I received an Advanced Readers Copy from The delightful, charming, witty, beautiful (enough butt kissing?) ever talented DAKOTA CASSIDY! I adore the ACCIDENTAL series with the OOPS girls, and of course big, foul mouthed Nina!

Caterer extraordinaire Jeannie Carlyle is asked to open a rare bottle of Gin at a client's party, but is shocked when a guy in MC Hammer pants pops out, and she gets sucked in to the most filthy bachelor pad of a bottle. She has just enough battery power left on her cell to search the term "paranormal", and the number for OOPS pops up.
Werewolf Sloan Flaherty was roped into helping answer phones at OOPS, though he's not too keen on helping distraught women. Sloan ends up being the only one avail

I could not get into this book to save my life. This book just tried too damn hard and it failed. It tried too hard with the pop culture references, with the attempt at banter, the crazy drug lord back story, and the whole ending surprise. It was just too much and it didn't work together.
Melody
This author created a cast of interesting, loveable, endearing characters that carry over from book to book. The problem is she made a mistake in creating one character too powerful. All any of them have to do is mentally "call" their demon friend Darnell and he will instantly appear to help them. But this would be too easy and eliminate the dramatic build up to the climax where the hero not the demon helps save the day. So the heroine of each of the last three books has had to become suddenly t ...more

I'm not going to add a star rating since I only made it through 81 of 338 pages. It was just too campy and tried too hard to be funny for me. I like the set up of a woman getting tricked into a genie bottle but it just didn't work for me for the above reasons. Not my cuppa.

I usually really enjoy a Dakota Cassidy novel; and while I'm most unhappy that I accidentally completely deleted my review, I'm more upset that I have to rewrite because I didn't really like this novel all that well.

My biggest issue was our main character, Jeannie. I didn'

Princess DC still has it. This book made a dreary afternoon fly by, with chuckles and laughter. I can't want for the next Accidental Adventure.
Stormi (Books, Movies, Reviews. Oh my!)
The Accidental Genies is the seventh book in Dakota Cassidy’s Accidental series and it was a lot of fun. I have really enjoyed all the of the Accidentals but I think this one is probably my second favorite one besides the first one.

What I thought of this book

The Accidental Genie brings all the fun characters from the previous ones and then adds a new person Jeannie Carlyle. Jeannie is a caterer and can handle most problems that come her way. At a party she had a client ask her to open a bottle o

A genie called Jeannie. I sort of liked the irony in that.

I also quite liked the plot - you don't get very many twists on the 'genie' genre. It made a nice change.

What I didn't like were the characters. Which, yes, I know, characters make the book which is why I'm only giving this 3 out of 5.

Jeannie (the genie) was quite annoying in that she kept forgetting Nina's name. Only Nina's. How hard is it to remember Nina? And then she starts calling her MWA (Meanest Woman Alive), which, if you think ab

The OOPS girls are at it again in another hilarious adventure, and Jeannie's accidental wish-granting makes things even funnier. That's right, Dakota Cassidy named her Genie, Jeannie. I know some people might think it's tacky, or silly, but I thought it was perfect.

Dakota Cassidy has a way of making her characters believable whilst still maintaing the suspension of reality through magic and supernatural elements. Jeannie's backstory is a great example of this, which I won't reveal here because

Jeannie Carlye was catering another gig for a client when she decided to open a bottle of gin that would change her life forever. Trapped in the bottle Jeannie does what any girl will do google for help and comes across the OOPS webpage for helping new paranormals adjust to their new lives.

Genie-ius quirky romantic comedy with a paranormal twist!

A Genie named Jeannie? You might think her name is silly, but I thought it was perfect. I've never had so much fun with a paranormal romance. This light-hearted fantastical romp will have you laughing out loud.

During a catering assignment, Jeannie finds herself sucked into a bottle of gin. She uses her phone to search for and callOOPS (Out in the Open Paranormal Support) for help. A werewolf shows up to rub the bottle in an attempt to get

This is my first Dakota Cassidy book - but it certainly won't be my last! The Accidental Genie was a barrel of laughs and just plain fun. It was fun to read and get to know everyone (I so want to read some of the other characters stories). It was funnier in the beginning with the more in your face humor and banter, it was lighter and more silly than later in the book. The plot didn't really pick up until quite a way into the book but I enjoyed the journey, I'll admit I didn't even realize that a ...more

Todo comienza con una llamada al OOPS, un grupo de soporte para personas que atraviesan situaciones paranormales como transformarse en hombrelobo, etc. Jeannie Carlyle llama a OOPS para preguntar qué puede hacer porque se encuentra encerrada en una botella de gin, después de que "un tipo parecido a uno de los personajes favoritos de mi sobrina, Aladin" salió y la atrapó en la misma botella. La conversación es tan aburrida que salté del primer capítulo a los últimos dos.

Straight up: This is a really stupid book.

And I loved it!

It was nothing but fun...a veritable pop culture-palooza. It was fast paced and a bit hard to keep up with the pop references (are they all even real?) but some parts were laugh out loud funny. I feel younger, hipper and invigorated after reading this book.

Sure...you could rip it apart with pacing, characters, profanity, lame drug-dealer story line, but whatevah! It is a fun book...sometimes you just have to step back and say WTF and re

this series has been fun to read, but I'm gonna take a break from the Dakota Cassidy's for a while now.
Nina's really getting on my last nerve and while she's better in this book I don't think she is all she's cracked up to be if you hear the other characters speaking about her.

really nice series if you're up for something light to read but not re-reading material, once was enough
Htran
This book is full of paranormal creatures, yet no one seems to have any special powers. I found it ridiculous that the hero was unconscious both times that the heroine was being attacked; by a human no less. The writing was good, it flowed and was an easy read. I just couldn't get over how magical occurrences would happen with no clear explanation and again, the hero was a dud.
Shirley
Even by romance novel standards, this is a pretty stupid book. There is a whole lot of arguing about nothing and then almost no chemistry between the leads and then a stupid plot. Really not impressed.
Deanna
Took a long time to get to the real point of the story, and then felt like it was rushed to the end. The subplot took over about half-way through, and by the time the story returned to the genie plot, I had lost interest. The book seemed to try to be way to serious for a book with a cartoon genie on the cover. I was not looking for heavy reading material, and it definitely touched on complicated subjects. I also felt like I was missing something, and didn't realize this was a series of books unt ...more

It was fantastic! I got a little confused towards the end, people popping up out of no where... Or maybe I keep glossing over their entrances.. (I reread it twice, still did not see it)
Monet St. Louis
I love Genies, unfortunately it's not a topic that i have seen very often in literature. so needless, i was excited to read this book. going into reading it, i knew that it was part of a series, and the 5th or 6th one in said series, but i also knew that it was about new characters. I figured i would get spoiled as to the end game of the previous novels - but this IS chick-lit, i know that the first guy the main gal's eyes meet they will be canoodling by the end of the book... (guess what i was ...more

I have to be honest, out of all the accidentals I think this is the one I've laughed the least. It was funny the story line was enjoyable but not laugh out loud funny. Maybe it's because Sloan never interested me before. I feel like his backstory as minimal because the reader is expected to already know him based off of previous books. This is fine but there was nothing about him in the previous books that made him desirable to me. Now Jeannie I loved. Loved her humour and strength. Of course Ni ...more
Becca
I loved it! I can't wait to read more and see what comes of all these new developments and characters!!
Ange Vilips
Funny and engaging, just what I love about Dakota Cassidy's writing style. A good reminder that no matter what you go through as long as you keep moving forward bad things will pass and good things will fall into place.
Kelsey
A lot better than the last couple by leaps and bounds. I was really getting tired of Nina's mouth, and everyone having the same 'voice'. There were times where I couldn't tell one character from another because they all talked and sounded the same.

I seriously almost didn't read this because I was getting tired of the above. But I'm glad I decided to read it, some parts threw me back to the last couple books, but for the most part it was refreshing.

The ending was pretty stellar as well and I'm

Holly (Gladriel Fae)
This was the first book in this series that I have read by this author and I was not disappointed. It was a fast, funny, very enjoyable book and even without having read the previous books that introduced most of the characters, I still caught on quickly. My only complaint was one character cussed far too much. She could have maintained her hard edge and been just as believable without all the vulgarity. Other than that, I really enjoyed this and plan to read the others in the series.

Dakota Cassidy lives for a good laugh in life and in her writing. In fact, she almost loves a good giggle as much as she loves hair products and that’s saying something.

Her goals in life are simple, (like really simple): banish the color yellow forever, create world peace via hot rollers and Aqua Net; and finally, nab every tiara in the land by competing in the Miss USA, Miss Universe, and Miss W
