This was a fun story with likeable characters and it seems like a great start to a new series I could enjoy. Jace and Sera are easy to like and to root for, because he’s sweet but determined to hide his feelings and she’s ready to strangle the guy who left her at the altar but confused by her lust for her friend. These are adorable dilemmas.
There was some will-they/won’t-they but mostly this was about Jace’s determination to make his oopsie-wife into his forever. When Sera’s groom fails to show at their wedding, her friends are there to help her pick up the pieces and forget about him. They have the best intentions but a few too many drinks and it all leads to Sera waking up naked next to her brother’s best friend. Things get more complicated when they realize they actually got married.
The supporting cast was fun so I’m looking forward to the rest of the series. Book 2 will be released in July and I’m interested to see if cranky Liam becomes any more likable in his own story than he was in this one.

The Playboys of Sin Valley book 1
I only showed up to crash my best friend’s sister’s wedding. So how did I become the groom?! Oops!
When I charged up those courthouse steps to stop Sera’s wedding, I didn’t exactly have a plan.
But there’s no way I was letting my best friend’s little sister marry some no-good tool who doesn’t deserve her.
Let’s just say things got out of control. Fast.
Now, the wedding is off. And Sera is crushed. And I’m just trying to be a good friend.
“Come stay at my place. Until you’re back on your feet.”
“Have some tequila. It’ll ease the pain.”
“And what’s a few much-needed orgasms between friends?”
Well, maybe I crossed the line with that last one.
Oh, but it gets worse…
Because we just woke up naked and hungover. And Sera’s wearing a big, ugly diamond ring.
On second thought, “oops!” might be an understatement.
I mean–I’m Jason Bellino. Confirmed bachelor. Pro football’s ultimate playboy . . . I don’t do relationships.
And she’s my complete opposite. A good girl. A rule-follower. The Sweetheart of Sin Valley…She doesn’t do no-strings-attached flings.
Talk about ‘opposites attract’.
Now, we’ve got this whole accidental marriage situation going on. Hot damn. I’m completely in over my head.
But married life isn’t half-bad, I guess. I could get used to the wall-shaking orgasms, the laughing and bantering together over our breakfast cereal, her cheering me on at my football games.
I should be trying to get rid of her. But more and more, I just want her to stay.
So how do I convince my oopsie-wife to play house with me . . . forever?
Playing House is a steamy, laugh-out-loud, best friend’s sister, accidental marriage small town romance. It is set in small town Iowa and is book one in the Playboys of Sin Valley series.
