My book of choice this week is The Accidental Werewolf by Dakota Cassidy. This is a very humorous paranormal.

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...

First sentence: 
Well. it was official. Lavender was soooooo not in her color wheel anymore. Not looking like this anyway.

Page 56, sentence 5:
"Well, he sure was pretty familiar with you, for someone who isn't your boyfriend," Nina persisted, running her fingers through her mussed tangle of dark curls. "You don't have to tell us about it if it's private. We can wait," she offered with a snippy tone.

I have just begun the book but, at the beginning of the book, the main character is in total denial of the fact that she has been turned into a werewolf and seems very "spacey".


  1. I Love Dakota Cassidy! Her books are hilarious. I'm so glad I found her books!

  2. I have to admit thats not my sort of thing. I think if I read that opening line I might close the book straight away. I hope its ok if Im honest.

    I hope that you are enjoying it though!!! It does sound like it would be a fun book :)

  3. Fun opening sentence!

    If you get a chance, perhaps you can stop by my Book Beginning Friday :)

  4. This sounds quirky and fascinating...that first sentence makes me laugh.

    P. 56 is pretty great, too.

    Here's my beginnings:
