Firefighter McAllister "Mick" Malone knows he has a protective streak, especially when it comes to his deceased best friend's sister, Tessa. But after twenty-five years of verbal sparring, Mick can't help but notice that their recent arguments have started to feel a lot like foreplay. And while Tessa knows exactly what to say to get him going, Mick is thrown for a loop when he actually starts breathing fire.

Antique-store owner Tessa Preston has loved Mick Malone since she was ten years old—not that she'd ever admit it. Fighting with Mick is the only thing keeping her from an embarrassing romantic confession. But when the sexy firefighter accidentally ingests some ancient dragon scales masquerading as powdered aspirin, Tessa finds herself handling something much hotter than long-simmering sexual tension.


First, if you are not familiar with the Accidental Series please take note that The Accidental Dragon is Book 9 of the series.  As a reader that likes reading series in order that is what I would suggest, but I know that some people don’t mind reading out of order.  You can read this out of order just be prepared for spoilers from the other books.

Second, run don’t walk to the nearest bookstore and snag your copy as soon as it comes out.  If you are a kindle person then one-click away.  This book was so much more than I expected!

I dare you not to fall in love with these newest additions to the Accidental family.  McAllister (Mick) Malone and Tessa Preston are incredible and handle all the “crazy” with a healthy dose of humor.  Both the hero and heroine are centered and strong, just struggling to make it on their own, each with their own set of heavy baggage.  Mick has been in love with Tessa since they were kids.  Tessa has been in love with Mick since she was a child.  However, they don’t do normal and just talk.  They fight like cats and dogs and now they fight like dragons!

The Accidental Dragon is almost a family reunion of sorts because they have to call on so many different friends to help solve the Dragon mystery.  It has an awesome plot complete with wonderful twists, a snarky, evil Nina, and her badass friends Wanda and Marty.  To my delight, this book brings in previous characters with some slight background, but don’t worry the plot moves forward full speed ahead with constant action and adventure.  You’ll be glued to the story and turning those pages as fast as you can.

Without spoilers, The Accidental Dragon is about friends that become lovers and overcome their tragic pasts that have been holding them back.  Mick and Tessa’s journey is heart-wrenching and beautiful.  Just have some Kleenex nearby.  This story had me crying and laughing.

I love a book with an epilogue because you get to see how the characters you just fell in love with are adjusting to their new lives.  Dakota Cassidy doesn’t disappoint on this front either.

The Accidental Dragon is a wonderful story and I can’t wait to see where the Accidental families end up next!
