Marty Andrews is hoping she can motivate her two fledgling make-up saleswomen and finds her world goes ass end up. First she gets bit by some mangy mutt. Then come to find out her professional career at Bobbi-Sue Cosmetics is on the edge of a cliff. And to complete the hell her week has been, said mangy mutt is a werewolf. Yeah you heard me, a werewolf. Dealing with the changes her body and system is going through leaves Marty short tempered, miserable and when she finds herself kidnapped as well…well let’s just she finds herself ready for bedlam.

THE ACCIDENTAL WEREWOLF kicks off a wonderful series filled with humor, plot twists you don’t see coming and more. Ms. Cassidy delivers her introduction into the ‘Accidental …’ series with a bang. The story is fast paced, has a few twists I didn’t see coming and the cast of characters are diverse and very well written. Everything about this book had me glued to the pages until the very end. Ms. Cassidy is a talented storyteller who knows how to entertain her readers with engrossing tales to enjoy.

Meet Marty Andrews. Her life is far from perfect but she has made something of herself at Bobbi-Sue Cosmetics. Her career is growing until she finds out her accounts got swiped by a rival and her mood swings are driving her insane. Between those two items as well as there is a strange man trying to tell her she is now a werewolf courtesy of his bite when he was a werewolf. A bite he didn’t mean to do to her. Wow is all I can say when Keegan Flaherty and Marty meet up. Talk about sparks. These two are pure combustion and I loved Marty’s sarcastic wit at times as it had me giggling, especially as she deals with the whole ‘shifting into a wolf, hair growing faster than a blade of grass’ sort of thing. The characters are well written, quite enjoyable and multi-dimensional. Keegan is pure yumminess as his alpha personality tries to explain to Marty what happened without sounding like he escaped from the mental asylum. The banter between these two had me laughing up a storm and the secondary characters were just as enjoyable as the main characters.

THE ACCIDENTAL WEREWOLF is a laugh out loud wild ride from start to finish. Ms. Cassidy delivers a story you can’t help but fall in love with and I, for one, can’t wait to check out the other books in the series next. If you love humor with your stories, paranormal delights and more, then grab THE ACCIDENTAL WEREWOLF and settle in for one rollicking ride. I just caution you to not drink or eat while reading this or you may find yourself sputtering and coughing. I look forward to seeing where this author goes in this series in the future.
