The Heartless Boyfriend
Bad Boyfriend #2
By Erika Kelly
Releasing October 16th, 2018

There's not an athlete alive who can match Will's drive and self-discipline...until an adorable two year old and a fiery chef land on his doorstep and turn his life upside down. If he wants to keep his girls, he's going to have to learn to lead with his heart and not his mind.

Will Bowie is supposed to be training for the Olympics, but the toddler unexpectedly dropped into his life isn't interested in his schedules. Still, he's pretty sure he's got things under control...

...until a sexy chef lands on his doorstep and offers at temptation he can't resist.

Hours after losing her restaurant, chef Delilah Lua enters a cooking competition thousands of miles away from home. Winning would resurrect the dream that's been stolen from her. If--no, when--she wins, she'll go back with the capital to open her own place and enough fame to do it with flair. Her roommate, though, is a delicious surprise she hadn't anticipated...

...but she's not sure how to have her cake and eat it, too.

Despite the undeniable sparks in the kitchen, Will's not about to give his heart to a woman who's leaving, and Delilah must decide if the delectable future she could cook up with Will is worth more than a childhood dream.

In The Heartless Boyfriend (Bad Boyfriend #2) by Erika Kelly, when her siblings decide she shouldn't receive the one thing her parents wanted her to have in their will, Delilah Lua leaves town and heads for Calamity, Wyoming and enters a cooking competition. Staying with Will Bowie and his adorable little sister is supposed to be temporary, but the more time she spends with him, the more she finds herself wanting to stay. Yet, when she's made an offer that seems impossible to refuse, will the pair fight for their happy ever after?

The first book of this series was an entertaining, emotional and fast-paced read, of which I loved from start to finish and this story was no different. Really, the main characters were absolutely fascinating and the hero's little sister was completely adorable; the dialogue was compelling and drew me in from the very beginning, as what the heroine's siblings do is completely unfair; and the plot was fast-paced and had me reading quickly, determined to discover what Will was willing to do to give Ruby the stability she deserved and had me wondering what the hero would do when faced with the possibility of the heroine walking away. Will the hero be able to convince the heroine to stay?

As for the dialogue, it was intense due to the main characters back stories and everything these two go through on their journey to happy ever after, as the heroine's siblings do wrong by her and what they do is so unfair. How could they treat her the way they do and not expect her to be upset? While the hero, I really felt sorry for him because of what happens to him. How could someone be such a bad sport? Why was the hero not willing to fight back against the things that were being said about him?

With the heroine, she's strong and brave when it comes to handling how her siblings have treated her and it's understandable why she needs to get away before she does something she'll regret. I also liked her determination for the competition and that she had faith in herself that she might win. Will she win? Yet, what I liked most of all about the heroine was the bond she shared with Ruby and how she challenges Will when it comes to his relationship with the little girl. All Ruby needs is love after all she's lost, not the routine and discipline Will was so determined for her to have. While the hero, he's a good brother; confident; driven when it comes to his career; and I liked how determined he was to do right by his little sister, even if he doesn't always make the best decisions as he navigates the situation with the newest addition to his family. I also liked the close relationships the hero had with his siblings and how determined they were to do what's right by their little sister because she needs them.

Overall, Ms. Kelly has delivered a really good read in this book where the chemistry between this couple was powerful; the romance was full of heat and passion and had me liking that these two took a chance on each other; and the ending had me loving the hero's determination to win the heroine back, especially after how he acted that sent her running and was the cause of their relationship going awry. I would recommend The Heartless Boyfriend by Erika Kelly, if you enjoy the friends to lovers trope, the mysterious strangers trope or books by authors Melanie Harlow, R.S Grey, Samantha Towle and Sarina Bowen.
