Publisher's Summary

A sizzling, sexy contemporary romance novel

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?

This is a full-length, stand-alone 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-won't-they love story that will have you completely hooked.

Fantastic Story & Audible Listen🎧 Mac💘Kelley!

I loved this book, it is well written and well told with interesting storylines & characters. The story captured my attention right from start and held it to the very end. I adored the two lead characters, Mac “Mackensey” and Kelley. When Mac first saw Kelley he could not help but stare at her, she was in an emotional state but he was just entranced by her beauty. Mac is a morning radio show host, he is fairly well known in the area as being the perpetual player and commitment phobe. But something draws him to her. Kelley dreamed of and worked hard to become a professional dancer, she was on her way to the top when an injury put an end to those dreams. The accident that caused her injury took away a lot more than her dancing, it was her whole life and she was in the process of starting over and finding herself again. Her best friend broke her heart and when she meets Mac and he asks her to go with him on a trip to Reno she jumps on the offer, it would be a great way to forget her heartaches for the moment. There is great chemistry between these two, being with Kelley is easy for Mac, he is able to be himself and it just feels right. The two party a bit too much and wind up getting married. Oops. They leave to go back home, back to reality, she goes back to her life and he to his. Funny thing is Mac is not freaking out about what they did. I loved their story, the drama, the laughs and most of all how great they were together. The author kept this story real, she did a great job covering some serious topics in this story, alcoholism for one and other real life issues. It was relatable and it really humanized these characters, showed their struggles and how they handled them. There are some great secondary characters who are supportive in many ways. I highly recommend this book, it is entertaining and enjoyable, the type of book you just can’t put down. Dana Mason, thank you for another great story and the emotional rollercoaster ride.

I listened to the Audible edition, Kelsey Navarro is a talented narrator and voice performer. She brings these characters to life, gives each their own voice and personality. She set the perfect tone for the story and adds a nice dramatic flair which enhances the story another level. She is an entertaining storyteller and a pleasure to listen to. Thank you for this great listen🎧

What happens in Reno...

Kelley is a struggling student overcoming a tragic past and life keeps finding new ways to deal her a crappy hand. Mackenzie is a Morning show DJ at the top of his game. He has a player persona, buckets of money and is in the process of leaving his partying lifestyle in the past.

The pair have an instant spark and there is sexual tension for days. Both characters are incredibly likable. And you can’t help but root for them from minute one. There is enough backstory and drama to keep you interested in what will happen next.

I would recommend this book for anyone into contemporary romance/steamy romance, protective alpha types and HEAs.

Lovely romance

A sweet story about two scarred souls finding together in a surprising way. The road to happiness is not easy but worth it.
Great storyline that builds up nicely to a happy ending.
No unnecessary descriptions of surroundings
Lots of dialogues
Characters is well described and feels familiar at the end and I like that very much.
This was romantic, sweet, steamy and agonising at times, I enjoyed it very much.

Narrator read with feelings and had clear pronunciation. At times I felt like the voice was a little high pitching but most of the time I enjoyed it.

Overall 5 stars ⭐️

Accidental Groom is the first book I've read by Dana Mason and it was super cute. It was both funny and light-hearted while also dealing with hard subjects and emotions. I loved theme of trusting actions rather than personas. This is definitely an author I'll be reading more of.

I received this book for free. This is my honest and voluntary review.

Great story, well narrated

Kelsey Navarro does a good job with the male character, Mac. It’s interesting because the initial content was heavily Mac so I expect it to be a male narrator but as the story goes on, I don’t actually feel much loss from having a female narrator. She does a good job with Kelley too and during conversations. Admittedly, it would have been great to have a male narrator.

It’s kind of an insta-attraction story- Mac, a playboy and a radio host, doesn’t understand why he’s so interested in Kelley after he sees her crying outside a Starbucks. He can’t forget her so, the next time he sees her, he asks her out. One night, while in Reno, they get drunk and then married. Unbeknownst to Kelley, Mac is a recovering alcoholic but that aspect plays only a little in terms of the story arc. The two have a good relationship but the supporting cast becomes a bit problematic, especially in their nonsupport. Mac’s sister, Emily, is a lawyer and causes major waves being overly protective (she redeems herself towards the end). Kelley’s friend, Meghan is a horrible woman who decided to go for Kelley's ex hours after their break-up (without knowing that they have broken up). Mac gets so little support from anyone in his circle that it’s fairly exhausting. I loved Mike (Kelley's ex fiance's brother) and Mimi (Mac's co-host) for their support. But overall, Mac and Kelley are great together and it's fun to listen to them get their HEA.

I loved this!! The characters in this pulled me in from the beginning. You could feel their chemistry and found it easy to root for them. The story was a good mix of humor, steam and drama- Loved every second! Wonderful find for a new to me author!

Kelsey Navarro was completely new to me and I must say she did a stand out job! I was soo pleased with her performance I had to go check out her other work. This was a fantastic performance!

Oops did I do that!

Oops did I do that! Accidental Groom. On one hand you have a woman betrayed by her best friend and ex. The other hand you have a relationship phobic. A nice twist on the 'Accidental' Groom. They actually know each other BEFORE they get married! Good flow, interesting and hot! My only flaw was, I felt it needed a male and a female narrator. When there is a POV for both, you kind of need both. Don't get me wrong, Kelsey Navarro did a fine job.

Emotional Love Story with Suprising Twists

I really enjoyed the emotional depth of Mac and Kelley’s story. I wish it hadn't been advertised as a rom-com because except for the premise of an accidental drunken wedding the story is pretty serious and dramatic! These are two broken people with tons of baggage who find each other and possibly love!? They are realistic and loveable! I cheered them on the entire time! I look forward to more by this author.
Biggest audiobook complain--there was one female narrator and it is a dual POV! I wish they would have had a male narrator too! It would have added to the story. I find myself reading on my kindle then listening.

Excellent Audible book and story

Both the author and narrator are new to me. I am happy to say I have found another author that I like and will follow. This story has so much more depth and emotions to it than just a couple gets drunk and gets married in Vegas.

Mac is in a coffee shop when he sees Kelly outside crying. He does not approach her then. Days later when he sees her in the coffee shop he starts talking to her. There is an instant chemistry between them . He invites her to go with him to a convention in Vegas. She needs to get away from home so she accepts.

Thus begins a story containing addiction, betrayal, loss, instant attraction, comedy, understanding, forgiveness, a liking that grows into an intense love, and steamy love scenes. The narrator did a good job of taking the words and making the listener a part of the story.

I volunteered to receive this Audible book in exchange for an honest review. I highly recommend this book. The attraction of Mac and Kelly will grip you from the beginning. The compassion that they show for each other is very endearing. This is one of those I will read just on more chapter before I stop books.

My Thoughts on Accidental Groom

This book completely took me by surprise in the best way. The author was new to me but the blurb was intriguing so I decided to give it a try. I'd heard good things about the narrator so I was at least hoping to enjoy that. But everything came together for this story. It was an amazing combination of great writing with a fantastic performance and I was completely sold on this story. I loved the characters and how relatable they were. Even in their flaws and past/current missteps, it just made them better characters in my opinion. I didn't want to stop listening and picked it up every chance I got and finished it in less than a day which normally doesn't happen often for me because of work.

I will definitely be looking for more books from this author and narrator.

It’s okay

It was just okay for me. I’m just a little frustrated with her running without talking and always have doubts and assuming things. I like Mac. Even if he’s a player but he’s always sincere. Over all it’s a good read. Kelsey Navarro did an excellent job at narrating

What happens in Reno, does not always stay there

Kelley decides to take a trip with the playboy DJ. Very quickly, Mac and Kelley find themselves married. Their journey is full of laughter, tears and pasts that they need to deal with. Kelley is a strong, independent woman. She brings such fun and banter to the relationship. Mac is known as a playboy, but will that all change when he finds out he is married? This is a light romance, that was so much fun to read. You will laugh, shed a tear and hope for these two to stay together. I loved following their journey from beginning to end. I could not put it down.

Kelsey Navarro brought this story to life. Ms. Navarro easily brought out every emotion and all the feels through her narration. She has an easy voice to listen to. Her male and female voices are distinct and easy to follow. I really enjoyed her narration of Kelley. Ms. Navarro made it seem as if I was right there through all of Kelley's struggles and emotions. I look forward to hearing more from Ms. Navarro.

Accidental Groom

A night in Reno that will lead to a lifetime of happiness. I loved the way this book flowed with it’s beautiful writing. The confusion and feelings involved were so realistic and detailed so well that I felt I was right there with them. A great listen with fantastic narration as well.

Interesting characters

Accidental Groom started off really strong. I liked the characters and appreciated that the story started before the accidental wedding. I was impressed that they shared responsibility for their actions, though much less impressed that the story became more typical of the genre in the second half of the book.

Overall, I really liked it and would be interested in hearing more from this author/performer.

A Fun Romantic Comedy

I love Accidental Groom. The storyline isn't entirely unique but it is fun and engaging. I love Mac who originally comes across as cocky and arrogant but turns out to be so much more than that. Kelley has had a difficult few years but she's finally decided to let loose and have some fun which turned out to be way more than she bargained for. I love both characters and their strong chemistry although I did get annoyed at Kelley at one point for making assumptions and running away without getting the facts first.

If you loved this book, then you'll love Accidental Lies which is the next book in the series and is Emily's story. I accidentally listened to the wrong book first but I love them both.

Kelsey Navarro did a wonderful job bringing this story to life. She has a very nice voice for both the male and female characters, and I really enjoyed listening to her.

Good Listen

Mac wakes up from his drinking binge and finds hisself married to Kelly. He has been sober for several years and can not explain why he drank and got married. Kelly's living situation is crazy and she is just trying to keep it together until she can afford something else. This story is funny but deals with some serious issues.
