Review: Accidentally Dead (Accidental Friends #2) by Dakota Cassidy

Title: Accidentally Dead
Series: Accidental Friends #2
Author: Dakota Cassidy
Release Date: July 1st, 2008
Publisher: Berkley Publishing Group
Pages: 352
It’s a lousy first day on the job for Nina Blackman when a patient, loopy from the anesthesia, bites her. At least he was cute. But for real drama she can’t beat the next evening. Nina wakes up with a set of razor-sharp fangs, bionic vision, supersonic hearing, and a taste for blood. But there’s a good explanation: It’s her patient, Long Island vampire Greg Statleon. Actually they’re perfect for each other—if Nina’s willing to commit to one man for eternity.
Nina is a thirty-something woman, impulsive, independent and very foul-mouthed. She's very strong, until the day she wakes up being a vampire! With the help of her best friends, she went looking for her "creator", only to find more troubles than she wanted.

The first time we met Nina was at The Accidental Werewolf, and she was the toughest girl I have ever known. Of course, she doesn't know how to be a vampire, and the firsts chapters are all about her dealing with her inner-vampire and whining. I wished there was more action, but it was at the middle of the book that I started to get it.

Gregori is hot, funny and a vampire. He turned Nina by accident, and now he has to deal with her. He doesn't like her at all, and I liked that, because it was different from the usual. He hated her foul-mouth and her attitude, but he feels responsible of her. Of course she doesn't want his help, and their relationship was very difficult to start (several chapters). They obviously started to like each other, but both were so stubborn. That made the romance it this book slower, but don't get me wrong, it was still hot, and they do get their "happily ever after".

I loved that we could read more about the characters from The Accidental Werewolf, because I really wanted to know more about them. Marty and Wanda appeared in the book several times, and they kind of made Nina think about her actions. Their relationship is very cool, because even when they're fighting all the time, you know they're going to stick together and help themselves no matter what.

The author manages, again, to write funny characters and fill the book with female thoughts and sarcastic jokes that will make you laugh, because seriously, sometimes I have just had the same thoughts!

Overall, it's a light, funny and very enjoyable read. I'm glad I read it, and I'm sure I'll continue reading this series when I need to laugh.
