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… 

I’m Mac.  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?

I enjoyed my time in ACCIDENTAL GROOM, although it is a bit deeper than what you see in the cover blurb, not drag you down but Mac and Kelley both have some definite issues that will play into their new and surprising relationship.

Even though the cover description is in Mac’s “voice” I had a difficult time seeing him as a true playboy.  A man dealing with a demon on his back that will be there his entire life and hesitant to bring that into a permanent relationship – now, that I could believe.  Playboy?  Not so much, really.  Kelley was handed some hard knocks in her life, the latest just pushed her beyond her limits.  The kindness of a stranger, who isn’t really a stranger since his voice is on the radio and his face plastered on the side of every bus in town, was unexpected yet exactly what she needed.  A spur of the moment decision will change both of their lives, what they make out of that so-called mistake could be the most important choice for their future.

ACCIDENTAL GROOM is full of an intense, quick attraction, sizzling chemistry and two people who aren’t exactly what they seem on the surface.  I enjoyed getting to know the real Mac and Kelley.  And it is very hard to not root for them to find their way to each other for a lifetime.  There are some nasty pieces of work characters that I never liked and don’t intend to… the roommate’s actions, just no.  That is a “you no longer exist in my universe” moment for me, but then I can hold a grudge forever.

I had fun with this romance, and would not hesitate to recommend it to any reader who loves a good Romance and enjoys going just a bit deeper into personalities.
