Book Review- The Accidental Werewolf

I finished reading The Accidental Werewolf by Dakota Cassidy last night.

From the back cover:

Marty Andrews is having a bad week. First, she's bitten by a mangy mutt while walking her teacup poodle. As a result, her salon-perfect blonde hair begins darkening by the day to something that's sooo not in her color wheel. Her moodswings have turned her into The Hormonal Hulk. Worse yet, the hair on her legs is growing at a rate even a body slam into an entire vat of wax couldn't cure. Last, and most important, her dream job as a sales rep for Bobbie-Sue Cosmetics is going to hell in a handbasket...

The only hight point is Keegan Flaherty, the drool-worthy man who shows up at her door. Of course, he's clearly insane. Keegan claims that he accidentally bit Marty, and since he's a werewolf, she is now, too. Red meat cravings aside, Marty refuses to believe a word until a kidnapping makes her realize there's more at stake than 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...

This was a cute story. There was just the right amount of humor, mystery, and romance. I really liked the way that the characters talked. It was very modern and I found it funny. The only thing that I didn't like was that there was waaaay too much talk about the "color wheel". This did tend to get annoying, especially at the beginning, but I got over it and enjoyed the story. I am looking forward to the next book in the series, Accidentally Dead.

I gave this book a rating of 3/5.

This book fullfills items for the following challenge:
