Nope. Can't do it.

There seems to be two different camps on this book -

Those who find this book irritatingly stupid and unfunny and would rather visit a proctologist than have to continue reading this.

And, those who have the patience of saints and the ability to find four-leaf-clovers in a manure patch who love this book.

As for me.... I'm looking for a good proctologist in Houston. Let me know if you have a recommendation.

This book was kind of silly and odd, but not in a bad way. I liked its quirky humor but the romance overshadowed most of it in an annoying way.
This book tried to be a paranomal-romantic-suspense-chick lit and IMHO failed in all levels. I didn't think it was funny (I didn't even crack a smile) the suspense part was ridiculous and formulaic, the paranormal aspect was totally undeveloped (they would go in circles discussing the same things) and the romance was cliche. Worse, the scenes would switch from what the author would have liked to qualify as 'funny' banter to graphic, 5-pages-long sex scenes that left me thinking WTF? I didn't car ...more

The Accidental Werewolf is the first installment in the Accidental Friends series by the hilarious Dakota Cassidy.
I've read this book a while back but forgot most of the story so I re-read it and wondered how I could forget. It's absolutely
genius. It's mostly what you'd call Chick-lit but it's almost paranormal.. so I'll go ahead and label it paranormal/chick-lit.

Marty is the protagonist of the story and it's told in the first person, but we also get good amount of the first person view on

Oh, Marty, how I love your obsessive-compulsive need to color-coordinate everything and micro-mangage people's everyday lives. This was the beginning of the strung-out love I have for everything Dakota Cassidy writes. This indie author is hysterical and truthful in her paranormal world of color wheels, furry hides, and barn sex. Cassidy is actually the author that paved the way for my love of paranormal romance, so I have much to be grateful toward her for. Her characters are very real in the wa ...more

3.5 stars. Liked it well enough. The humor in this book was a bit eye rolling to me but it was a cute story overall.

For the first couple of pages I was wondering “what kind of a novel is this?”. Colour wheels, and Bobbie-Sue? It took me a bit to get past those first couple of pages. But, thankfully I did, but this book was surprisingly better than expected. I very much so expected a bubble light read, and in some ways it was, but most of the time it was filled with emotion, drama, romance, and adventures. Obviously I need to stop

My thoughts...Hooowwwllll. What a fun story. The heroine, Marty Andrews is a very determined women who winds up in a very unusual situation. Her focus is achieving success in the door-to-door company Betty-Sue Cosmetics. I really liked Marty because she could admit her flaws,she was very goal oriented and didn't look for the easy way out. With her recruits, the feisty Nora and the soft-spoken Nora, they find themselves in a dark alley with a rabid dog, or so they think. It wouldn't be a great st ...more

I only got to the first couple of pages. The characters were too shallow and self absorbed. Couldn't handle it. It will appeal if you want a fluff read, which I enjoy sometimes. Just wasn't for me.
