Review: The Accidental Werewolf 2: Something About Harry by Dakota Cassidy (Accidentally Friends #8)

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….

Elizabeth's Thoughts

Mara wants to be a mom and have little werewolf babies. Problem is no one in her pack is interested in mating with her. She takes it amongst herself to make a serum in her lab in order to impregnate herself with werewolf babies. However, something goes terribly wrong and Harry, a Pack Cosmetics accountant (and her long-time secret crush), accidentally drinks the serum and turns himself in to a werewolf! 

How is Mara going to get herself out of this mess? She’s pretty sure she’s going to the big house and to top it all off, Harry is super pissed at her. Yeah, so she accidentally turned him into a werewolf but what was an accountant doing in her laboratory in the first place?

Find out this question and more as Mara, Harry and the OOPS (Out in the Open Paranormal Support) team get into all kinds of shenanigans while helping Harry to adjust to being a werewolf, saving him from a witch doctor, helping him raise two kids and STILL devise a plan to save Mara from jail. This book is a wild ride full of werewolves, vampires, a demon, a witch doctor, a half zombie who eats only vegetables and two human kids acclimating to life with their Uncle Harry. Could it possibly get any wilder? Yes, yes it can!

This is my first Dakota Cassidy read and I absolutely loved it! This book was such a delightful read and a refreshing twist on the paranormal. I loved the witty dialog and the hilarious characters, Nina the vampire being my favorite. Her profanity-laden banter had me laughing out loud the whole book. I loved reading about all these different characters and even though this is the eighth book in the series, I never felt lost not reading the previous books.

The romance between Harry and Mara completely warmed my heart. I loved watching these two stumble through the book and ultimately fall in love. I really enjoyed this story and there was nothing about it that I didn’t like. I highly recommend this book to anyone who enjoys a hilarious, paranormal romance. 

I received a paperback copy from the publisher in exchange for an honest review. All conclusions reached are my own.
