Welcome to our blog!
Amy and Jennifer ARE Seduced by Books. We’re both in our 30’s, moms, close friends, work together, and share many of the same interests including our love of reading. Amy grew up in Maryland and has been obsessed with Vampires for as long as she can remember. Jenn grew up in Florida and loves the furry, the fey, and the fangs, in that order. Currently we are both in Orlando, FL. When we can be pulled away from books, Amy loves to bake and Jenn loves to take pictures and scrap.
We decided to create a place where we could direct friends, and acquaintances for, book suggestions/recommendations (Jenn’s been known to talk to strangers on the train while traveling in NYC). Once we started out with a simple page, we evolved from there. Now we are sharing our book reviews, fun comments, recipes, and giveaways. We try to give reviews on new releases, pre-releases, and oldies but goodies that we read, or are reading. We’re going to be adding author interviews for established and up and coming authors soon.

The Accidental Human by Dakota Cassidy

The Accidental Human (Accidental Friends, Book 3)Wanda Schwartz is raking in the dough selling Bobbie-Sue Cosmetics-and she's a pro at recruiting new saleswomen. So, she's shocked when a man comes to one of her in-home parties-a very hot man. Heath Jefferson is sure to put some extra spin into a lot of women's color wheels.

When Wanda is diagnosed with a terminal illness, it doesn't have to be a death sentence. With a werewolf and a vampire for best friends, she has options that most ordinary people wouldn't. As Wanda ponders what to do about her mortality, Heath reveals he has secrets, and one of them is that his former bloodlust has turned into an old-fashioned lust-for Wanda. And he's already given up too much to lose the love of his lifetimes.  (courtesy of Amazon)
The Accidental Human by Dakota Cassidy is the third book in her Accidental Friends series.
The main character in this installment is Wanda Schwartz. Her life is going great; she’s a successful Bobbie-Sue Cosmetics saleswoman with a couple of awesome (and supernatural) best friends, and a love of romance/paranormal books. Then fate drops a bomb on her - she has a terminal illness. Since her friend Marty is a werewolf and Nina is a vampire, she has options most people with her diagnosis don’t have. She doesn’t want her friends to worry about her, though, so she decides to keep her situation to herself. As if that’s not enough, she meets sexy Heath Jefferson at a Bobbie-Sue recruitment party, and he has a secret of his own. While training him in the ways of the color, she figures he could be a fun last fling for her, even though she’s not usually a fling kind of girl. That’s when everything gets complicated!

I really like Dakota Cassidy - she’s such an entertaining writer.  Honestly she's just entertaining in general, which you know if you happen to be friends with or "like" her on facebook!!  She cracks me up.  :)  Her books are infused with a lot of humor, which I love. Even this one, with a premise that seems so depressing manages to have quite a few funny elements. The interaction between the characters is great - it feels very real, especially between the three friends. They always love each other, but sometimes they really want to choke each other. Who doesn’t have friends like that?! lol I know I got a late start on this series, but I’m so glad picked it up. It’s been very fun to read, and I can’t wait to read the rest of the series. The Accidental Friends series should definitely be added to your TBR list!
