Thank you for visiting my website!
I’ve been a storyteller most of my life. Growing up in Los Angeles and being involved in the entertainment industry, I started out writing screenplays. But the medium frustrated me, so I tried to shake things up with a creative exercise. To my tremendous surprise, a 650-page love story poured out of me. It may have been awful and ridiculously long (though, secretly, I still love it!), but it was the most fun I’d had writing in ages. And so I’d found my true voice as a writer. Since then, I’ve written dozens of contemporary romances, from YA to New Adult to single title. What does age matter when we’re talking about finding the loves of our lives?!
I’ve got exciting news! MINE FOR THE WEEK, the second book in the Wild Love series, is out!
As the top collegiate shortstop in the country, Ryan O’Donnell’s life is about discipline and training. But a growing restlessness causes him to bail on his baseball team over spring break to join his buddies at an exclusive singles resort. He just needs a few days to escape his life, and then he’ll get right back on track. But not twenty minutes after he arrives he meets HER, and the world as he knows it changes irrevocably. It should only be a hookup—that’s what spring break’s all about—but one taste of this sexy, vibrant woman isn’t enough. He has to have her. Even if it’s only for a week.
Sophie Valentine—yes, that Valentine—just found out her siblings want to sell off Crazy Hearts—the Peeps of the Valentine’s Day world. Being the youngest by eight years, she’s used to feeling left out, but selling off her family’s legacy without talking to her first? Not gonna happen. Upset, she takes off with her friends on their spring break vacation. She only wanted an escape—she never imagined meeting HIM. He’s smoking hot and intensely protective of her—and she loves it. But he’s about to start a major league baseball career, and she’s launching a battle to keep the family company. They have no future. It’s just…she’s never felt this way for anyone before.
Are they really going to walk away from this kind of connection…this passion? Or can a week turn into a lifetime?
I’m so excited about my next series coming out in 2018. The Bad Boyfriend series is about four brawny mountain-men brothers who grew up wild in the Tetons with a super competitive dad and an eccentric uncle (in other words: no maternal hand!). These elite athletes have ZERO understanding of romantic relationships. But, trust me, they will all meet their matches, and when they do these guys will fall HARD. Check out the first book in the series, The World's Worst Boyfriend. I am loving these stories!! You can meet all the guys and get a glimpse into their world on my Pinterest page.

TAKE ME HOME TONIGHT "is emotional and tremendously sexy, with a large cast of characters that readers will adore -- Kelly's rendering of Calix's grieving parents is particularly well-done -- but it is Mimi's strength that will linger long after the finish." - Sarah MacLean, Washington Post
Booklist calls I WANT YOU TO WANT ME "...steamy, hot, and totally engaging. The characters are realistic, and Kelly paints a vivid picture of what happens behind the scenes in the world of rock."
