The eighth book in the Accidentally Friends series, SOMETHING ABOUT HARRY doesn’t leave a reader feeling like they’re jumping in at the middle of the series, and the sense of humor and quirky characters make this book an easy and fast read....All in all, SOMETHING ABOUT HARRY was a fun read- similar in style and sense of humor to other paranormal romances by writers like Molly Harper and Vicki Lewis Thompson.

Our Review, by LITERAL ADDICTION’s Vivacious Valkyrie – Marta:

*eARC received from the Publisher via Netgalley in exchange for an honest review

Well Dakota Cassidy has done it again and written another hilarious offering in her popular Accidentally Friends series, this one is number 8 I believe and sure to delight her fans.

Shy werewolf Mara Flaherty has carved a career for herself as a chemist at Pack cosmetics but there are just two things she still really wants. One is a child of her own and the second? Well that just happens to be the uber sexy but conservative accountant Harry Ralph Emerson. Only problem is Harry seems oblivious to her fumbling overtures and there's no one else she's that attracted to. Using her skills she creates a serum that could help her get pregnant with her own werewolf cub but problem is it gets drank by mistake and unfortunately the unlucky person is Harry and suddenly he finds himself not just an accountant but an accountant sprouting fur!

Not given to panic Harry goes online and finds an organisation calling themselves Out In The Open Paranormal Support -OOPS- and having done their quiz comes to the worse possible conclusion, that he's turning into a werewolf! Calling them for help he gets more than he bargained for as the snarky vampire on the phone just doesn't seem to appreciate his predicament. When help does arrive Harry quickly learns that not only has he changed but just about everything he believed in was a lie as well.

Finding out he's been working with supernatural creatures is just the beginning . Mara, who he'd secretly liked is responsible for his transformation and he's expected to keep it a secret as she would be in trouble with her pack. Mild mannered Harry suddenly finds himself at the mercy of his inner beast and it looks like he knows just who to unleash it on.

Mara's mortified at what's happened but together with her friends is convinced they will be able to help Harry if only he would let them! Finding out he has two small children at home to look after complicates things and the small matter of Maras libido where Harry's concerned doesn't help, but when the children are threatened Harry and Mara have to work together.

These books are usually a riot and this one was no different. Ms Cassidy writes a delightful contemporary paranormal tale that's full of fun. Not intended as dark or particularly erotic but warm, amusing fantasy. Her rich characters jump off the page and although not always likeable (snarky vampires!)they are vibrant and full of life. Frequent popular culture references had this reader laughing out loud but what remains with me is the loving and close relationships that her characters share. A delightful read to brighten the dullest day! ( )

I can’t believe that it took me so long to discover this series; it’s a shame that it’s already eight installments deep but this is one of those rare occasions where I actually won’t mind playing catch-up. Dakota Cassidy’s writing made such an impression on me that there’s no way I could possibly resist coming back for seconds, and thirds… Something About Harry is a fun read with a great cast of characters that I’m dying to learn more about. The author’s sense of humor is right up my alley; I loved her pop cultural references and the paranormal tidbits were wildly entertaining.

I adored the opening chapters of this book! The scene where Harry’s on the phone with Nina freaking out about turning furry for the first time in his life is priceless. The vampire OOPS counselor on the other end of the line isn’t exactly the most compassionate individual; I took an immediate linking to her abrasive yet snarky personality. And, the more I got to know her, the more I wanted to read her installment in Cassidy’s Accidentally Friends series. That seemed to happen to me a lot while reading this book; as each character was introduced I had a hard time resisting the sudden urge to download their respective story to my eReader.

I enjoyed this novel’s over-the-top corniness; from the author naming a werewolf Harry to the ridiculous way in which he’s apparently turned. I also got a kick out of all the pop culture references, any writer that can work Sam / Dean Winchester, Harry Potter and The Walking Dead into one book SHOULD be on my auto-buy list. But the wackiness doesn’t end there! Meet Carl, the vegetarian zombie with a love for broccoli! Not many authors can pull off such outrageous humor in Paranormal Romance but after only one novel, Dakota Cassidy has proven that she deserves to be on my bookshelf beside some of my long-time favourites like Molly Harper.

The plot line’s entertaining with its who-done-it set-up and is surprisingly complex given the lighthearted tone of this book. Harry, the mild-mannered accountant, actually has a few secret admirers and Mara’s experiment gone wrong turns out to be the least of their problems. I liked the romance between the two main characters; the mutual attraction is obvious but there’s more to a relationship than just great chemistry. That being said, while these two are attempting to work things out that doesn’t stop them from doing the horizontal dance and Harry quickly learns that being a werewolf has some definite advantages.

Something About Harry is hilariously funny with great characters that left me wanting more and even though this is the sixth installment in this series, I never once felt lost. Dakota Cassidy has just made an insta-fan with this book! ( )

From national bestselling author Dakota Cassidy comes the latest in the series that "gets better and better with each book." (Bitten by Books)

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…
