Book Review: The Accidental Werewolf 2: Something About Harry by Dakota Cassidy

The Accidental Werewolf 2 : Something About Harry (Accidentally Friends #8)
by Dakota Cassidy
He’s in a furry situation.

Accountant Harry Ralph Emerson has always been a by-the-numbers kind of guy. But when he finds himself trapped at work sprouting an obscene amount of hair, he knows his odds for maintaining normalcy are zero to none. After a frantic internet search, Harry goes through the OOPS—Out in the Open Paranormal Support—checklist and comes to a disheartening conclusion: He’s turning into a werewolf and he needs help ASAP.

She might be the only solution.

Werewolf Mara Flaherty has long carried a torch for Pack Cosmetics’s sexy single accountant, even after her attempt to seduce him went down in flames. When her sister-in-law, Marty, shows up to handle Harry’s OOPS emergency, she tasks Mara with showing the hirsute hottie the ropes. But Mara knows Harry’s condition is a result of her lab experiment gone wrong—and the previously mild-mannered object of her affection is about to give her a piece of his mind…
Maura Flaherty is a werewolf who works in a lab and she desperately wants to have a baby. She makes this baby potion that she plans on taking home but it inadvertently gets ingested by a man who mistakes it for his vitamin water. As you can imagine, he isn't thrilled with this little snafu.

Harry Emerson is human, or at least he was human until something happened to him and he turned into a werewolf. We meet him for the first time when he calls the paranormal hotline asking the most unsympathetic woman for help.

There's no slow start to this book, we get great character interaction right from the very beginning. I wanted to hate Nina, who was on the other end of the phone call with Harry but I loved her character and her softer side that we see later on. I really hope to see more of her in up coming books.

Maura and her friends come to Harry's aid and quickly find out that his situation is even more serious than they realized. Not only is he now a werewolf but he has his late sisters kids at home that he has to take care of. I loved the kids characters, they were just snarky enough without coming off as brats. My heart went out to them after finding out they lost their parents and good old uncle Harry doesn't have a clue as to how to relate to them. It takes a talented author to give such depth to characters that it pulls on a reader's heart strings while reading.

Things look like they're going to work out alright until Maura goes on trial for accidentally turning a human with her baby mama potion. There are a few twists that I didn't see coming but they made sense in the end.

This is the second book in this series and even though I haven't read the first one, I don't think that in any way stopped me from enjoying this book at all. This definitely can be read as a stand alone book, so don't let the fact that it's book 2 in the series stop you from reading it if you happen to find yourself with a copy.

This is the first book by this author that I've read but I can assure you, it won't be the last. I love finding new to me authors that I really love reading. If you like steamy sex scenes, werewolves, vampires, zombies and a witch doctor thrown in just to mix things up a bit, you'll love this book.

About the Author:
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 World pageants, then sweeping them in a stunning trifecta of much duct tape and Vaseline usage, all in just under one week. Oh, and write really fun books!

Dakota lives with her two sons, her mother, more cats and dogs than the local animal shelter and has a husband who puts the heroes in her books to shame.


  1. DC is one hell of a funny writer. Both the Accidental Whatever and the Trophy Wife series are fun reads that will have you grabbing a fresh pair of Depends. I'm a big fan and she knows it.

    Oh, and she doesn't live in Texas anymore.

    1. I take the bio info from the author's website. I will go check and see if it has changed thanks!

  3. Nice when sequels can be read alone and you can still get everything in it

    1. Thanks for dropping by, Pat. :) It is nice when you can read a book in the series and still get a feel for what's going on.

  4. Ahh sounds fun! I love the single guy raising kids even if they aren't his. Something about it just gets me every time. I have a couple of these on my tbr pile. Sounds like I need to dig em out!
