9. What inspired you to write The World's Worst Boyfriend?  
Second chance romance is my favorite trope--it's filled with crazy passion and charged with so much emotion--so I knew I wanted to write one in my next series. The Bowie brothers were raised by an eccentric dad and uncle in the harsh terrain of the Tetons. They didn't have a maternal hand growing up, so they're not really oriented toward romantic love. Except one of the brothers. The youngest. He loves with his whole heart and holds nothing back--which makes it difficult for his older brothers to understand him and enables them to give him the wrong advice. Which creates problems, because he admires them so much and wants to please them--but his heart belongs to Callie Bell.

The World's Worst Boyfriend

Buy


From award-winning author Erika Kelly comes her brand new, smoking hot series about four elite athlete brothers raised in the Tetons by their eccentric, billionaire dad and uncle.


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.
