Book 2 in the Accidental Series

Nina Blackman was first introduced to readers in The Accidental Werewolf as Marty’s new friend and Bobbie Sue Cosmetics salesgirl. When Marty was bitten and turned into a werewolf, Nina was by her side every step of the way. Now Nina is back with her own story in ACCIDENTALLY DEAD.

After realizing color wheels are not her thing, Nina quit Bobbie Sue Cosmetics to work as a dental assistant. Unfortunately, on Nina’s first day of work she is bitten by a patient while he is under anesthesia. The next morning when Nina wakes up with fangs, she panics and calls her paranormal friend Marty because she’s sure she will have all the answers to her problem.

After a little investigating, Nina, along with Marty and their friend Wanda, go in search of the man who bit Nina. After stealing his address from the files at the dentist office, they arrive at a castle of a gorgeous man named Greg Statleon.

Greg is a vampire, almost 500 years old and smoking hot. But Nina isn’t listening to her loins; she’s listening to the screaming voice in her head who wants to murder this man who turned her into a vampire. She doesn’t want to drink blood and refuses to accept the news that there is no cure, no solution, this is it.

Along with her friends Marty and Wanda, they search Wikipedia and paranormal romance novels for the answers on how one turns back into a human after turning into a vampire. Nina learns that if she can find the original sire of Greg, then she can ask this person to turn her back. But Greg refuses to help Nina find the sire and she is left to her own devices to solve this problem.

Nina is convinced that Greg turned her so he can complete his mission of ruling the world with vampires. Greg has a lot of secrets and Nina doesn’t trust him one bit. Can Nina accept her new status as a vampire and drink blood and live for eternity or will she continue to look for a cure to turn her human again? Will Nina’s loud mouth and abrasiveness turn Greg off and forever ruin Nina’s chances at finding true love?

ACCIDENTALLY DEAD is a hilarious, chick lit, paranormal romance, that had me hooked from the first sentence. It was fun to read a paranormal where the characters start off human and then turn into werewolves, vampires, etc. I love Nina’s feistiness and how she refuses to accept her fate even though she has fangs and craves blood. Nina is the type of friend you would want by your side when times get hard and she would fight for you or die trying.

ACCIDENTALLY DEAD had me laughing the whole time and was so much fun to read. I adore books that make me smile and laugh and this one definitely did that for me. Overall, this was an entertaining story that has earned a spot on my keeper shelf. I can’t wait for the next book in this series!!

  1. Great review, Rachael! can't wait to read this one! :)

  2. Sounds like fun Rachael. :) I haven't gotten to read the first book yet, do I need to before reading this one?

  3. Hey Kimberly
    You can read this one without having read Accidental Werewolf, but it may be more fun to read that one first so you get the little bit of backstory on Marty, Nina's friend. It can definetely be read out of order though.

  4. Thanks for the info, I'll try to pick up the first one next time I'm out to the book store. :)

  5. LOL, seems like you're reviewing all the books I want to read!!! Glad to know that you enjoyed it! I still have to read Accidental Werewolf though...
