KISSING KELLI
Kathy Carmichael

A Texas Legacy Romantic Comedy

Rodeo champion and wealthy rancher, Bobby Gray Nelson, is used to women setting out to lasso him. But when he meets feisty Kelli Palmer, she refuses him on every count. He's always up for a challenge and is determined to woo this beautiful veterinarian who he thinks could be his soul mate.

Kelli Palmer doesn't believe love is in the chute for her. She's devoted herself to the animals she cares for and the family she adores. So when her sister claims dibs on the handsome cowboy, Kelli reins in her attraction and tells him to skedaddle.

Losing is not an option for this gorgeous cowboy. He comes up with a 5-step plan to place his brand on Kelli's heart.

The problem is, he can't even make it to the first step. Never fear, though. He's got a Plan B.

Can Kelli stand her ground -- even after his toe-curling kiss?

    Couldn't even read!

    I have read one other book by this author and thought is was okay. This book however, I couldn't even get into. The characters were horrible,story line full of cliche's, and the dialogue was even worse. I will be deleting this from my library

    Cheesy from cover to cover

    If I could use one word to describe this book, it would be cheesy. The story line was weak (I mean, come on, the little sister has a hissy fit and flies to Germany to avoid her sister.) The romance is non-existent (how can someone love someone else off of a few non-dates and ONE kiss?) The family dynamics is just plain crazy, the level of money these families throw around is ridiculous. I was put off by the cover, was even higher on the cheesy scale, but tried to live by the "don't judge a book by its cover." To bad I didn't pay closer attention. Not sure I will look for more books by this author.

    Short and sweet

    In this lighthearted romance, cowboy Bobby Gray Nelson sets out to win the heart of veterinarian Kelli Palmer, a woman with distant ties to royalty and a strong sense of family. Her loyalty to her sister Lori is the wedge that drives these two apart, as Kelli's sister had the dubious privilege of going out with him first. With a motley band of sick animals in tow, however, Bobby Gray is determined to succeed in the end.

    This story falls under a category I call "fluff": a quick read that is mild in nature and aims for easy entertainment. Bobby Gray's antics are amusing, and Kelli's relationship with her parents and her sisters is heartwarming. Carmichael's writing style is in keeping with this mood, creating an easygoing atmosphere in which the story could take place. The characters felt a bit like cardboard cut-outs, however, falling neatly into certain personality types with limited latitude for individualization.

    The quick development of the relationship between the two was confusing, as was Kelli's resistance to Bobby Gray's advances. Perhaps I had a difficult time with the latter as the original source of conflict seemed forced. Lori's gripe against the budding relationship was tenuous at best, and her behavior was more comic than it was realistic. The final denouement had me groaning with disbelief, given the interactions between each of the characters up to that point. Perhaps a great deal of this was due to the brevity of the read. More development would have benefited the story significantly.

    In spite of its classification under "women's fiction", Kissing Kelli is the sort of romantic comedy that I would recommend for readers who are just shy of the young adult designation. It's G-rated entertainment that the romantics among the tweens can enjoy.
