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.
The Accidental Human was better. Easily my favorite of the series so far. The humor is starting to feel a lot less forced, for one. I think the character felt a lot more authentic and even though there was still that annoying emphasis on swearing, it felt more appropriate in this character. I think it really helped that the subject matter was deeper – we’re dealing with serious illness and that just lends itself to a better book I think. It really brought the friendship to a new and interesting height.
I read it much faster and was much more eager to see how things would develop… who was the accidental human and how? What would happen to fix things? I was actually concerned which was great. Oh and I loved Heath and his man servant. Great characters.
I did have one major frustration – either Cassidy (the author) or Wanda (the MC) need to read a lot more paranormal. At the end, so this is a spoiler sort of – we see the introduction of a brand new-to-them paranormal species. But if you read paranormal like I do, or like Wanda supposedly does, you know what that species is called and a little bit about it. Well the name they give is WRONG and what it’s capable of is WRONG. Which fine, create a new lore. But I prefer that to be in acknowledgement of it’s newness. So that bugged me.
Also this felt like a series ending – so now I’m really thrown as to where the series goes after this. I know we’ve got lots more books. Curious to see! Loved the narration as always 🙂
