Six years ago Fin Bowie made a decision that cost him the love of his life. Now his ex is coming back to town for her brother's wedding, and he can finally make things right. Except, right before the event, a text he sent goes viral. Overnight, he becomes an international meme. And it's hard to win your woman back when the whole world's calling you The World's Worst Boyfriend.
The last thing on Calliope Bell's mind is getting back with Fin. Not when her life's just gone sideways, forcing her to spend the summer in Calamity, Wyoming. She can't be away from the New York art world this long, so she comes up with the idea to turn the hottest pop culture event of the moment into a museum exhibition.
The two have every intention of avoiding each other--until the county judge sentences Fin to community service...helping her exploit the meme he's trying to make go away.

Contemporary Romance; second chance romance; friend to lovers romance.

Book #1 of a new series, that will portray four hot brothers.

It feels like this is going to be a wild series!!!

  • Addictiveness: Yes. This is one of those wild reads that you can’t let go. You just keep reading into the night so you can finish the story. Really addictive!
  • Character: hero 5/5, heroine 5/5, secondary characters 5/5, growth 5/5, real 5/5  I love all characters. They are so easy to love, connect and understand. Fin is wild and passionate. He has done a few mistakes, like everybody that is human, but he knows what he wants and goes after it. Callie is a strong female. She has reinvented herself. She is such a great heroine. So many interesting secondary characters. I know this series is going to be amazing.
  • Freshness: I like it. This is story feels new and is very pertinent to the world now.
  • Plot: believable 4/5, conflict 5/5, dialogue 5/5, ending 5/5, enjoyment 4/5, opening 4/5, pace 4/5, setting 5/5, subplots 5/5, twists 4/5  Good opening and great ending. Wonderful conflict and dialogues well written. Steady pace with enough subplots to enhance the story. This story is believable and easy to enjoy. There is a bit of angst here, it makes it all more intense. Also the author shines a light into the internet and the consequences of sometimes a careless act. Small misunderstandings can become a huge mountain to overcome later.
  • Romance: believable 4/5, chemistry 4/5, description 5/5, development 5/5, steam 4/5 The romance is beautiful. It hurts, it mends and it opens possibilities. I love how the author has developed from old hurts to second chances.
  • Writing Style: Fabulous characters, great plot and beautiful romance.



  • Cover: art 3/5, title 5/5, subtitle 5/5, color-font 5/5, buy 3.5/5 I’m obsessed with book covers. I buy many books because of its cover without reading the blurb. This one has an ok art, but after reading the book I totally dislike. Really, whoever and whatever is trying to portray there, is not Callie and Fin. I like the title and the colors/font used here.


My first book from the author, but definitely not my last. Ms. Kelly writes romance with angst and heat.

28/35 STARS –  4 STARS (4 stars between 28 and 31 stars)

Addictiveness: 4 Character: 5  Cover: 3  Freshness: 4  Plot: 4  Romance: 4 Writing Style: 4

  • Darkness 0/5

You MAY read this because you like the author; you SHOULD read this because you enjoy romance; you MUST read this because is beautiful and poignant!!!



She’d thought her inability to let him go meant she was weak, but it had never been as simple as missing him—missing the habit of him. No, he was embedded in her. And she knew that because being in his arms felt exactly like coming home after living out of a suitcase and sleeping on strange, uncomfortable mattresses for far too long.

A strong hand cupped her chin, aligning their mouths. That first hit of contact—the heat and indescribable softness of his tongue—made her blood sizzle. His hands swept down her back, cupping her ass, and pressing her hard against him.

He kissed her deeply, lavishly, like he thought she might leave and he had to get in as much of her as he could. And that drove her wild. His possessive grip told her he wanted her with every fiber of his being. The same way she wanted him.

Her heart pounded so furiously it hurt, and she needed to feel him everywhere. She ran her fingers through his scruff, cupped the back of his neck, and rocked her hips against him. Desperation clawed at her, the need to get closer, deeper, be swallowed up so they could finally join with their whole bodies and souls.

His hand pushed under the elastic waistband of her leggings and gripped her bare ass.

“You better want this, wild thing.” The growl in his voice set her on fire. “Tell me right the fuck now.”

Her blood raced so fast she could hardly find the breath to speak, but he wouldn’t touch her until she answered, so she pushed out a, Yes.

About Erika Kelly

Award-winning author Erika Kelly has been spinning romantic tales all her life–she just didn’t know it. Raised on the classics, she didn’t discover romantic fiction until later in life. From that moment on, she’s been devouring the genre and has found her true voice as an author. Over three decades she’s written poems, screenplays, plays, short stories, and all kinds of women’s fiction novels. Married to the love of her life and raising four children, she’s lived in two countries and seven states, but give her pen and paper, a stack of good books, and a steaming mug of vanilla chai latte and she can make her home anywhere.
