At the request of their friend Antonia (Accidentally Ever After), Wanda, Marty and Nina find themselves trekking up a snowy mountainside, in search of Toni’s brother. Wanted by the mob, Cormac Vitali is hiding out in the Colorado Wilderness, where the ladies from OOPS finally catch up to him…freshly tranq’d by a bounty hunter. 

Bear shifter Teddy Gribanov realized Cormac was her life mate about five minutes after shooting his big muscly bod with her trusty dart gun. She’d be shocked by that revelation, if she wasn’t too busy getting stabbed, shot, and hunted down by a crooked cop and the Russian mob. Oh, and her psycho ex, freshly sprung from the pokey, and hell bent on making Teddy pay for putting him there. 

Sometimes love finds you when you least expect it—and when it’s least convenient. Join Wanda, Marty and Nina, manservant Archibald, sweet zombie Carl, and demon Darnell as they hatch a plan to bring down everyone standing in the way of Teddy and Cormac’s accidental happily ever after. 


Bearly Accidental picks up the story line from the end of Accidentally Ever After.  If you haven’t read that you won’t die or anything, but you will be missing out on the basis for this story.  The OOPS ladies, Nina, Marty, and Wanda promise Antonia from Accidentally Ever After that they will do their best to locate her brother.  Thus, we enter the story during the grueling search for Cormac Vitali.

Of course no mission is ever easy for the OOPS gals.  Turns out they are not the only ones hunting down Cormac.  Terry Gribanov is out bounty hunting and Cormac is her meal ticket.  That’s when it all goes wrong.  Meal ticket or not, Terry, can’t turn over her life mate.  Too many questions need to be answered while she keeps her over-protective brothers at bay and both the Russian mob and her ex from killing them.  Dakota Cassidy spins a web of mystery and intrigue that had this reader sticking to the pages.

Cormac Vitali and Teddy Gribanov are delightful characters with depth and passion.  Their romance is a slow burn that sizzles at the end.  I enjoyed getting to know these characters and think they make a wonderful addition to the Accidental family.

Bearly Accidental is full of the trademark snark that you can associate with Dakota Cassidy.  This book also had plenty of tongue-in-cheek ribbing regarding romance books that had me laughing.  The OOPS ladies don’t disappoint with their famous foul language and bickering. 

Overall, Bearly Accidental is a wonderful story with plenty of plot and action to keep you on the edge of your seat.  Dakota Cassidy also included a lot of her Accidental character favorites and references to some of the extended family in this story.  There are no cliff hangers, but you will be left looking forward to the next book.
