The Bad Boyfriend #1
By Erika Kelly
Releasing April 3rd, 2018
Self-Published


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.

In The World's Worst Boyfriend (The Bad Boyfriend #1) by Erika Kelly, Fin Bowie is determined to win the love of his life back, but he knows that isn't going to be easy, especially after what he did to Calliope 'Callie' Bell. However, when he discovers he's got the whole summer to win her back before she returns to New York, Fin knows he's going to have to do everything in his power to earn Callie's forgiveness. Will Fin be able to convince Callie to give him a second chance, or will her fear of the past repeating itself keep them apart?

This is the first book I've read by Ms. Kelly and I've got to say that this story does not disappoint. It was filled with wonderful characters, compelling dialogue and was a book that had me hooked from the very beginning, as Fin is determined to get back home to a friend's wedding, but it seems nothing can go right for him. Will he manage to make it home? However, it was from the moment the hero and heroine come face-to-face for the first time where things really get interesting, as the hero is willing to use everything in his arsenal, especially when it comes to reminding the heroine of their shared past. 

As for the dialogue, it was highly enjoyable and had me loving the hero so much, as he does everything he can to earn the heroine's forgiveness, which is not easy. It's palpable how much he cares about his family and how he wishes he could earn their respect, but Callie always seems to be the one he disappoints by proving she's not as important to him as his brothers. Will Fin finally prove to Callie that she's his number one priority? Moreover, the hero is confident, driven to make his brothers see him as their equal instead of always feeling left out, and I liked how determined he was to win Callie back. However, I couldn't help but sympathize with him when it came to the whole World's Worst Boyfriend trend and how it was making things a tad difficult for him. While the heroine, she's smart; determined to fight for her career path when something happens that could alter her course; and I liked that she was willing to forgive the hero, even though it's hard for her because she's always felt like she comes second to him. I also liked how she begins to mend her relationship with her family, as she'd distanced herself from them and missed out on so much. 

Overall, Ms. Kelly has delivered a delightful  read in this book where the chemistry between this couple was powerful; the romance delightful and made me glad that the hero didn't give up his pursuit of Callie, despite her being adamant they'll never again be more than friends; and the ending had me smiling, as both realize their relationship is meant to be and do everything they can to fight for their future together. However, it was the final chapter that wrapped this story up nicely and has me looking forward to the next book of this series, especially because I want to know the answer to the burning question right at the end. I would recommend The World's Worst Boyfriend by Erika Kelly, if you enjoy second chance romances or books by authors Melanie Harlow, R.S Grey, Samantha Towle and Sarina Bowen.
