The Kellys Of Key West by AJ Matthews ~ Cover Reveal


At 22 years old, Thea McBride tests positive for a breast cancer gene mutation, and Thea decides to go all ninja on the disease, opting for a preventative mastectomy. Her “Farewell to the Boobies” vacation with her friends includes loads of partying and one last fling with a hot guy. But Thea’s never been one for “one night stands” and falls hard for the cute boy from Key West named Shay, touched by his own tragic history. One month after tearfully saying goodbye, Thea discovers Shay is attending medical school in her hometown. Now guy who hates lies wants more than a fling with the girl harboring a huge secret. Though he's proven he loves more than just her breasts, Thea must figure out a way to tell Shay, and watch him walk away.


Film student Trini Diaz thinks she has everything: a hot boyfriend, a loyal best friend, and a mom who’s pretty cool. During winter break, her world gets turned upside down: Her boyfriend breaks up with her. Her mom reveals Trini’s dad actually isn't her biological father, and her best friend Mac tells her he’s loved her forever. Her life will never be the same. And maybe that’s a good thing. Mac lives at home with his parents. He has no ambition to leave, or at least that’s what many people think. He has a dream to be a successful singer-songwriter, like his hero James Taylor. But fears induced by autism, anxiety, and depression hold Mac back. One night he takes a chance, kissing Trini and confessing his feelings. Even if she doesn't feel the same, Mac knows that making that leap of faith is the only way to move ahead. Can the two make that leap into the unknown together, even if it’s the scariest thing either will ever do?


Maybe burning the other woman's panties while they were still in her boyfriend's car may not have been Bennie Garcia's brightest idea, but the moment Enrique laid his hands on her, she saw red--and enjoyed watching the red sports car go up in flames. Now Bennie's back in Key West to pay back her uncle for bailing her out. Her first patient is someone she'd hoped to never see again: the arrogant, opinionated (though admittedly hot) Liam Kelly. Except Liam isn't looking too hot these days. As a Marine serving his last weeks in Afghanistan, he lost his leg in an accident, a fate worse than death to the playboy quarterback who had only his looks--and his moves--to rely on with the ladies. Bennie and Liam must learn to struggle through the storm ahead, and realize even the worst circumstances in life can bring along a story-book happy ending.

About The Author

AJ  Matthews
I wrote my first book at six. A retelling of The Three Little Pigs, illustrated by my grandmother, the book was never picked up and was self-published instead, glued to cardboard with a cover fashioned from wallpaper scraps.

Today, I write stories featuring nice guys (or nice guys in-the-making) in between my other jobs writing research reports for a commercial real estate company, refereeing two young daughters, navigating the teen waters with a too-cute-for-his-own-good son, spoiling a neurotic cat, and making my darling, patient husband shake his head. I'm also an autism mom, chocolate enthusiast, sports-watcher, nacho-eater, and beer-drinker.

A Maryland native, I live in North Carolina now, but dreams of the beach fuel my fantasties, and my characters can often be found strolling in the sand or sailing along a coast.
