Small Town Romance at it’s best. 

The story starts with injured NFL quarterback Xander and unemployed chef Lulu. 

It is a story of figuring out what you want to do to make you happy instead of living up to the expectations of others.  This story  is a beautiful blend of banter, swoony-worthy romance, relatable insecurities, and that once-in-a lifetime love all romance, all set in the close-knit small town mountain of Calamity.

Xander is anything but your typical jock hero and I can honestly say he is unlike any other hero I’ve ever read. He has a quiet strength about him.  He is a multi-dimensional character that has you just falling in love. He is the book boyfriend we all need!

Lulu is such a great character!  She is the book bestie you just want to sit down and have drinks with.   She is so real, so completely relatable. Her struggles are ones every woman will understand. Her journey is so significant to women.  She is a character that could be any of us.   

Erika Kelly is an amazing storyteller who understands exactly how to build an HEA. Erika Kelly writes the perfect small town romance.  You haven’t visited her worlds I highly recommend her. This story can be read as a complete standalone.
