My head is pounding. Yawning, I rub my hands over my face, and I’m surprised by the shiny gold band on my left ring finger. What the…
But you know that, right?
You probably even recognize the sound of my voice…
Because I’m the radio host that wakes up most of Sacramento every morning. The DJ that most of the women in Sacramento lust after.
Everyone knows me, knows my reputation. Ladies’ man, bad boy, eternally single commitment-phobe.
I have my own reasons for needing to stay single, my own demons to battle with. Scars that don’t show, but that stop me from getting close to anyone.
Except, after one hell of a drunken accident, I’ve woken up married. To a gorgeous green-eyed girl, Kelley, who I only met yesterday in a coffee shop.
A killer hangover later, it turns out that this playboy is off the market. The only question is…for how long? Because no girl has ever been able to change my ways – and who says that Kelley is going to be any different?
This is a full-length, standalone romance with some hot-under-the-collar action, no cheating and a guaranteed HEA. For fans of R.S. Grey, Whitney G. and Vi Keeland, Accidental Groom features a sexy af alpha and a steamy will-they-wont-they love story that will have you completely hooked.
I want to thank Bookouture for allowing me to be part of the Blog Tour for Accidental Groom by Dana Mason
Mackensey is a ladies man. He is the love them and leave them type and to say he is a commitment-phobe is an understatement, but when Mackensey eyes a girl crying on a bench outside the local coffee shop, he can’t help but be moved by her. Kelley is a local college student who is suffering through her own heartbreak. Meeting Mackensey by chance has the potential to change both of their lives in ways neither Mackensey or Kelley ever realized. It’s not every day you wake up after a night drinking only to realize you are now married. Can Mackensey ever get over his commitment phobia to give their relationship the chance it deserves?
When I went in reading this story I thought I was going to get a sweet romance with an all too familiar trope (which I love!) and while that is true for the most part, the story is more than just a romance. The story deals with some heavy hitting topics and both Mackensey and Kelley have a lot to deal with as individuals. Dana Mason really writes with such honesty and shows how two damaged people deal with their past while trying to make a future. I really think this part of the story was done really well and often showed a side to both Mackensey and Kelley that shows them as both flawed characters, but with so much to give for the right person.
The story did move kind of fast and I was a little leary knowing that Kelley agreed to go away with Mackensey pretty much right away after they met. Personally, it is not something I would do. With my luck, I would be agreeing to go away with a serial killer and find myself chained to a bed, but I digress, this is not about me right now. I will say though, Mackensey does come across as a sweetheart and really takes an interest in Kelley and he really does treat her with respect. I love how Mackensey can see Kelley is different and not like other women he has previously dated. There is a big misunderstanding that adds a bit of drama in their relationship, but it was handled pretty well and Kelley did not border on TSTL which was a big relief for me.
Accidental Groom is a sweet romance with a heat level that is off the charts! What a great start to a new series and I can not wait to see what comes next.
