InkSlinger PR Review + Excerpt + Giveaway: The World's Worst Boyfriend by Erika Kelly

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, The Bad Boyfriend Series! Don’t miss your chance to meet the sexy and extreme Fin Bowie in THE WORLD’S WORST BOYFRIEND! Order your copy today!

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.

My Thoughts:

I finished The World's Worst Boyfriend. First off, Fin isn't a terrible boyfriend. He was a moron when he was younger, but honestly that doesn't deemed him the worst boyfriend, he has a crappy friend who decided to market a text off him. However, Fin is a super classy guy in the story. I personally would do a smear campaign against the friend, but he's a classy guy. His main objective is fix the wrong he did all those years ago with Callie. However, she's decided to reinvent herself become better than the rest of them. For the first half of the book I couldn't stand the girl. I couldn't understand why Fin wanted to get back with her. Seriously, she was a bitch. Yet, Fin realize what Callie was portraying was a just a tough outer shell.

Through most of The World's Worst Boyfriend we watch Fin repair the damage he left behind. The man has his work cut for him. This a second chance romance. He also learn a lot about himself in the story. Actually both him and Callie have a lot of growing up, and they do that in the story. At the end we do find them gaining a happy ending, but there is something that leads to the next book. It's not really a cliffhanger, because Callie and Fin's relationship is all good, we have a lead into the next story.

Overall, I did enjoyed The World's Worst Boyfriend. Granted there were times I wanted to smack Callie in the back of the head, okay it was most of the story. Fin is a super awesome guy, and he might not think out everything. However, he's a decent guy. I felt so bad for him, because he didn't deserve all the crap he was served in the story. I like how Fin prove to Callie that he's a good guy in the story, she was had to get over some of her personal issues.

“What’s with the hair, wild thing?” The all-too familiar deep, rough voice cracked through her like a thunderclap.
It might have been a while since she’d heard it, but Callie’s body responded like a rosebud to sunlight. Every cell bloomed and strained in his direction.
Her stomach lurched, and she did not want to turn around. She didn’t want to look at him. With fight or flight kicking in, it took every bit of strength she had not to run like he’d just tossed a lit match at her feet and set her on fire.
“Hey, Fin,” Megan said.
Brushing Callie’s arm as he reached across the small circle they made, Fin met Megan in the middle for a hug. His scent—that hint of sage and clean clothes, the essence of Fin—swirled around her, filling her senses and sending her crashing back in time. She had a matter of seconds to pull herself together and treat him like an acquaintance. Her boyfriend didn’t know about him, so she needed to just be normal, but turbulence scrambled her system, and her mind went blank.
And that pissed her off. She’d prepared for this moment. Hell, she’d rehearsed her responses. But living it, having him right here, she just…dammit. No matter how many nights she’d lain awake scripting this interaction, she couldn’t control her body’s reaction.
Come on. She gave herself an internal shake. He’s just a guy.
But when he pulled back, he turned his full attention on her and…Oh, my God.
For the first time in years, she looked Fin Bowie, in all his six feet two inches of rock-hard muscle, in the eyes. A tremble started from deep within, rising in velocity until her composure shook like a tree in a violent storm. Last time she’d seen him, he’d been a boy. A gorgeous, untamed, mischievous boy who’d kept her on edge for most of her life. His wild, free spirit made him impossible to nail down.
But the boy she’d loved so fiercely had nothing on the man who stood before her. With his overgrown dark hair and bright blue eyes, he was a shock of rugged, raw power next to her lean, elegant boyfriend.
