Review: Something About Harry by Dakota Cassidy


The Accidental Werewolf 2

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…

Dakota Cassidy brings her trademark hilarious  sense of humor back again into another Accidental Series book. Mara and Harry, the heroine and hero of the story are both really great characters. Mara was super smart and logical, very loyal to her friends, and just a genuinely good all-around person (werewolf!). Harry didn’t fit the typical paranormal romance hero, that is he wasn’t an alpha male by any means- instead, he was sort of nerdy and grieving, recently the guardian of two young children due to the death of his sister and making a transition into a creature he had no clue existed. They are good for each other, and I loved how Mara and the rest of the crew formed relationships with the children. The characters other than Mara and Harry are great, for example, Nina, the kick ass vampire, Carl, the vegetarian zombie, and Guido, the incompetent Witch Doctor, they all round out the story wonderfully.Even though I had a blast reading The Accidental Werewolf 2 Something About Harry, I was really annoyed at Harry for not believing the ladies when they told him that he could not “fix the  problem. I mean, really? Why would they lie to him? So apart from that little annoyance, I laughed my way through the book and ended it with a happy sigh.

Who I would recommend this too: I would recommend this to anyone who likes to laugh. However, if you are sensitive to bad language probably not the book for you. you have to like the "off-beat" humor and not give a flip about language to enjoy. If you do however give these books a chance, I guarantee your cheeks will hurt from grinning. They are fantastic :)
