The Right Kind of Guy

Kelsey is a romance author, who doesn’t believe in the stories she writes: tropes, insta love, steamy connections, friends to lovers, you name it: she mocks it privately.  Now the time is come to put up or shut up: the big convention in Vegas where romance fans and megafans gather to celebrate all things romance.

Megafan Jasmine is determined to find hers this year, and Kelsey and her stories are an answer. Determined to get over a broken engagement by getting under one of those hot, half-naked cover models with romance and relationship on her mind, she’s off and running.  Hampered only by her brother Aaron and his determination to keep her from the biggest mistake of her life.

Oh this was fun. As Grady is poking at the over-used and repeated tropes that all romance fans have seen, she is in the middle of placing her protagonist Kelsey into the middle of the largest (and most problematic) of them all – instant connection.

Between the snide asides, clever dialogue and the sweet romance and connection that develops between Kelsey and Aaron, as well as the descriptions of out of control readers, scantily dressed cover models and the ‘what happens in Vegas stories’ that stay there, you’ll be whipping through the pages smiling often.

A fun introduction to the genre we love to read, and occasionally poke fun at.

About the Book:

Romance novelist Kelsey Spencer doesn’t believe in love, and she's tired of faking her way through happily ever afters. Determined to change things up, she heads to the Las Vegas Romance Lovers Convention. But somewhere between half-naked cover models and hot Navy SEALs, Kelsey’s plans derail...

Especially once she meets über-fan Jasmine Grant...and Jasmine’s über-hot alphahole brother, Aaron.

Buttoned-up Aaron Grant never thought he’d find himself at a romance convention, but here he is, trying to convince his impulsive sister not to marry a beefcake cover model. His only hope is to enlist the aid of the cynical (and sexy) romance writer his sister worships.

After a sweltering jaunt around Vegas, some strange conference hijinks, and one outrageous proposal, Kelsey and Aaron are left questioning everything they know about romance and love...and if falling in love might just be worth the gamble.

About Kerri-Leigh Grady

Kerri-Leigh Grady loves to sink into happily-ever-after tales and blow-up-all-the-things tales, especially when her testosterone-loaded house has hit its monthly limit of athletic socks and slapstick. She holds an MFA from Seton Hill University and a BS in computer science, so she’s a kind of half-artsy, half-nerd ball of nervous twitching. She has an unnatural love of dark humor, gadgets, chickpeas, BJJ, terrible acrylic landscapes, half-assed jewelry, and planners (Hobonichi and TN, natch). When the zombie apocalypse happens, she’s likely to be patient zero. If you see her bite someone, grab your water and head for your bunker.
