A vampire puts the bite on a dental assistant.

It?s a lousy first day on the job for Nina Blackman when a patient, loopy from the anesthesia, bites her. At least he was cute. But for real drama she can?t beat the next evening. Nina wakes up with a set of razor-sharp fangs, bionic vision, supersonic hearing, and a taste for blood. But there?s a good explanation: It?s her pa...more

Well this is what I get for choosing a book by its cover. It sounded funny--dental hygenist bite by vampire while cleaning teeth--hyginks ensue. UGH it is a second in a series and the charater is just so flat. The author tries to add interest to her back story--but too little too late. I was just looking for a nice quick read chick lit book. And at chapter ten--too late to turn back--the book turned into full blown erotica to my horor. UGH I do not want to ever read the word "cock". YUCK I'll st...more

Accidentally Dead is the second installment in the Accidental Friends series by the hilarious Dakota Cassidy. I randomly picked up Accidental Werewolf(book 1) not to long ago, and boy was it good. This book is the same, if not better. It's face paced and the characters are written great and down right hilarious. Nina was introduced in Accidental Werewolf as Marty's pain in the butt new friend from Bobby Sue Cosmetics. And this time around, she only gets worse. But I say that lightly. She's a fun...more
Where the first book in the series (The Accidental Werewolf) was quirky and cute with annoying but lovable characters, this book is annoying and boring with bitchy and unlikable characters. This is truly sad given that a lot of them are the same characters. And the love interested also comes off very bad and unlikable as well. The foul language is also something you'd expect to see from teens on a internet forum, not from a grown woman. I was hoping for at least mindless fluff, and I was sorely...more

While the concept itself is fine, but the story is stagnant, the characters are hollow, and the dialogue is oxymoronic. The characters constantly repeat themselves, and ask questions which they've answered in previous paragraphs. Even though they are part of the modern era, and have seen vampire movies, they appear have no knowledge of vampire lore, even while commenting on the specifics of vampire movies. This book is ridiculous and painfully void of anything remotely close to quality. It pains...more

Got through about five pages of this before I had to return it to B&N, where I had bought it 25 minutes before.

Needless to say, Bloodsucking Fiends by Christopher Moore is the better accidental vampire novel.
I have this almost annoying need to finish a series after starting the first book. Because of this need I forced myself to finish Accidentally Dead and it was done by pure force of will. This book is a hard read. It's supposed to be one of those paranormal chick-lits of light mood and jokes every two paragraphs, but that's not exactly what you get.

The story is about Nina, a very rude, impulsive and independent thirty-three-year-old. On her first day at work as a dental hygienist, she has an acci...more

You wouldn’t believe how hard it was to find this book. First it wasn’t in any store. Then I order it – only they got the order wrong and got Accidentally Human. Only just before that incorrect order comes in, Borders comes up with two copies, which I don’t buy since I ordered, but after the order was wrong I made a special trip out to Borders to get it. Bah! But – it was a really fun read. I think that’s what I like about Dakota Cassidy’s books; they’re fun. I know I’m going to laugh at the cha...more
Book 2 in the Accidentally Friends series.

Nina, best friend of Marty the new werewolf, is a potty-mouth dental hygienist whose first day on the job turns her into a vampire.

Nina complained that Marty whinged about her werewolfness in the previous book, but Nina complained and whinged and was the Queen of Denial about her vampness.

This series is funny, lets face it they get their info from Wiki and romance novels, but Nina was a bit too mean to Greg. Greg is her unwitting Sire and very hot and v...more
I'm glad that the second book continued with the same characters and expounded on Nina's storyline. But, I didn't like this as much as The Accidental Werewolf. Nina's personality was too different from how she was portrayed in the first book. She spent too much time whining. I hope that the story for Wanda is back up to the same caliber as the first one. Even though I was a little disappointed with this story, I am still looking forward to the next book in the series.
Ohh boy! Some people have big mouths and then some people have Nina Blackman’s mouth. Scratch that… nobody does the big mouth like Nina. We first saw Nina in The Accidental Werewolf as Marty Andrew’s color wheel accomplice and best friend. Even as a secondary character in that book she really made an impression on me, and I was glad that she got her own book...

I started reading this in May, got less than half a dozen pages in and couldn’t take it anymore; the yelling back and forth between Nina and Marty was so asinine it completely turned me off. Several months and several books later I decided to give it another try, because I have only not finished one book in my life (I’m 65 and have always read a lot).

Cons: I have to say this is one hard read between the language, which isn’t what one would expect for a light cozy read, and the idiocy of Nina (s...more
Solidly silly again. It was annoying that the woman was so busy arguing that she didn't even try to get info on her new situation. And it was completely a romance, without a conflict outside of the couple until more than 3/4 through, and even then it was brief. But I like the relationship between the 3 women who each star in one book of the trilogy and the hero is hot. I am intrigued by book 3 because the GR reviews indicate more depth of story.

First Thoughts: Accidentally Dead is the second in Dakota Cassidy's Accidental Series and although funny it had way more harsh language than I care for which had a little barring on my rating this time.

I new going into this one that because it was based on Nina that it was going to have some course language I just don't think I was thinking it was going to be that bad. Nina is a very brass person to begin with and you find that out in the first book. Now she is accidentally bitten by a vampire w...more

A great light and fun read. This 2nd book follows potty mouth Nina who just doesn't know when to shut up. But she has a big heart under her tough exterior.

The book is filled with a handful of great quotes. And a good laugh. I love dry sarcastic and random humor, and like the first book in this series, this one kept the laughs coming.

At this point I love Marty, Nina & Wanda. These gals and their stories would make for a pretty good sitcom, I think.

If you're looking for something fun and ligh...more

Her first novel in the series was actually funnier and faster paced. This took twice as long as it should've for me to finish. I put it down and barely picked it up on the weekends when I was off. Half the time I fell asleep reading the middle if the afternoon...and I am not a nap person.

I liked Greg, but not so much Nina. I felt the characters needed more development and less drama. I don't know if I want to pick up the last book or not. I'm tempted because Wanda seems the more rounded...more

This was a really good book. It took me a little bit to really get into it, but once I did there was no putting it down. I love the characters and the link between the books. I can not wait to read more of the series and I definately recomend it!

Rating: C
Narration: B-

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 p...more
Check out for more great reviews and fun info.

This is a great sequel to The Accidental Werewolf. I actually liked it better than the first. I also read it first which I would not recommend since all the characters are introduced in a fun way in the first one. However, it didn’t ruin the story for me, I caught up quickly. This is another fast and fun read. Never too dark or slow, just sexy and fun. And though the sexy scenes are pretty sexy, there are only a few with a fun st...more

Before starting my review I just have one thing to say you must Read Accidental Werewolf it will help in understanding where Nina comes from, or else you might not like this one. After reading Accidental Werewolf, I wanted more of all the characters especially my favorite Nina.

Nina's is the most sarcastic, rude, and full of drama character that everyone will love. Nina added such a flare to this series that after the first book you want more of here!! So I picked this book up asap after finishi...more

Accidentally Dead was very lucky it didn’t find a home on the DNF pile it started so bad.

Nina was accidentally bitten by a vampire when he went to the dentist to get his tooth fixed. After rejecting any sort of notion that she will never be human again and trying to find a way to turn back she not only has to find a possibly evil vampire who could help her, but she also needs to content with her growing feelings for her maker.

Accidentally Dead was basically a replica of The Accidental Werewolf o...more

Nina is a thirty-something woman, impulsive, independent and very foul-mouthed. She's very strong, until the day she wakes up being a vampire! With the help of her best friends, she went looking for her "creator", only to find more troubles than she wanted.

The second book in Dakota Cassidy's "Accidental" series has Nina Blackman as the main character. Nina is one of Marty's Bobbi-Sue Cosmetics recruits. She didn't really have the knack or desire to sell cosmetics to the unsuspecting public, so she decided to go to dental school instead. Her first day on the job as a dental assistant didn't go too well, though. One of the patients, while loopy from the anesthesia, accidentally bites her, enough to draw blood!

What surprises her the next day (or nig...more

Nina has a potty mouth and her swearing turns me off . If it weren't for Greg Statleon , the gorgeous hunk of vampire ,with an interesting background, I would have stopped reading it because I couldn't tolerate the way Nina talked , thinking she was tough. So because I liked the Greg character I gave it an ok. He was undoubtedly a good vampire if such a thing existed .

Nina very stubbornly refused to accept she was a vampire after Greg accidentally bit her when he was given some anesthetic at th...more

Mmmm...okay, I don't know how to review this book.
I mean, I kind of liked it. But about a half of it just wasn't that good. I didn't like Nina that much in this book. She was worse than Marty was in Book 1. So whiny and annoying and infuriating, I was actually glad there was a man with a thousand balls like Greg not taking her shit. In fact, I totally loved him, except for a few things he did/said that I didn't like.
I liked Svetlanna (or however you spell it) and Lou.
I still like Wanda a lot,...more

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...more
