Gray Bowie broke the bro code: he fell in love with his best friend's girlfriend.

For years, he hid his feelings…until one terrible night, it all came to a head.

Since her life blew up in high school, Knox Holliday has spent her time honing her skills as a couture wedding dress designer. But, just weeks before her debut, a freak accident wipes out her collection. The culprit: her ex’s former best friend, Gray Bowie.

Gray does everything he can to get her career back on track. As they work together, they find forgiveness and start to stitch together something that looks a lot like love. But, at the very moment they realize they have a chance for something real, her ex comes back to town, bringing opportunities Gray can’t provide.

This time, Gray’s not going to step aside, so he can only hope Knox will hold onto his heart.

She’s his dream, but will he be hers?

Review: THE CARELESS BOYFRIEND by Erika Kelly Publication Date: April 23, 2019 Genre: Contemporary Romance Reviewed by Reading in Pajamas/ Cori Rated 4.5 Stars I loved this one! Gray just became my favorite Bowie brother! THE CARELESS BOYFRIEND is the third book in Erika Kelly’s Bad Boyfriend Series. Each book in the series features a Bowie brother and can be read as a stand-alone, but I recommend reading them in order to fully enjoy the series. I devoured Gray and Knox’s story. It was a great second chance romance and I just completely fell head over heels for Gray. Erika Kelly always delivers a great feel-good romance that never disappoints. I highly recommend Erika Kelly’s books for romance lovers looking for romances with happy ever afters that leave you smiling and wanting more. *Review copy provided by the Inkslinger in exchange for an honest review. ~*~*~*~

Oh, Gray and Knox - I soooo enjoyed your story! Another solid book from Erika Kelly. Gray and Knox are meant to be, but it doesn't seem ever at the same time. happens at the same time....when fate brings them back together in the most unusual way! I really enjoyed their love story. Nothing worth having is ever easy. Gray knew what he wanted from the moment he met Knox. Knox a true product of her upbringing and her past took a little longer to get there. There are a lot of feelings - said and unsaid. I don't want to give away anything, but this is a great book and not to be missed!

Knox and Gray weren't a perfect match, but my heart found them to be pretty darn close. Careless Boyfriend marks a new beginning for two friends who never even had a clue. Knox is the girl who dares to dream, even as her world is falling apart. Gray is more than just a carefree guy. He feels deeply and yearns for the girl of his dreams to give him her heart. Kelly brings to life, an amazing tale of teenage heartache and adult second chances. From the fear of never fitting in, to the emotional upheaval of losing a best friend, Careless Boyfriend never claims to be anything but what is. A compelling look at the impact love brings and the hope it gives.
