Ellie Rice | Author-Reader Match: KEYED UP

October 25, 2019

Instead of trying to find your perfect match in a dating app, we bring you the “Author-ReaderMatch” where we introduce you to authors as a reader you may fall in love with. It’s our great pleasure to present ELLIE RICE!


I write contemporary romance with lots of LOL moments and a little angst, for good measure. My stories are full of steam and snarky banter. I want to get you hot, then make you snort-laugh.

My newest novel, Keyed Up, releases 10/24. It’s about a spitfire if a redhead with a penchant for odd, made-up words and phrases and the hot as sin bike builder who tries to focus on opening his second bike shop. Neither wants a relationship, but you know what they say about best-laid plans.


Mid-forties momma seeks readers who love movies and music and have a sense of humor of a fourteen-year-old boy. Readers should be well versed in recognizing quoted from all of the best movies from the 1980s to the present. The author has lived the quiet life, only discovering her inner vixen in the last eight years.

What I’m Looking for in my Ideal Reader Match:

– Someone who recognizes my movie/music quotes and can recite the next line

– Enjoys quirky characters with odd senses of humor

– Loves insta-lust that morphs into all the feels

– Understands love is hard and scary and sometimes you make mistakes with the best of intentions

What to expect, if compatible:

– Plenty of LOL moments

– May need several panty changes

– Book boyfriends you’d shank your best friend over

KEYED UP by Ellie Rice

Keyed Up

I’m a smart-ass with a foul mouth and I don’t take any sh–stuff from anyone. I’ve been through some things that not even my BFF knows about. So, I have only one thing I want from a man, and it isn’t his bank account. Hell, it’s not even his personality. Appendages are all I need. That’s why I hate Micah. He had to go being all NICE. But our time is short. Once we leave Key West, everything stops. It’s for the best. It’s what we both want.
Or is it?
I’ve got no time for women. They require too much attention and if I’m going to build one of the premier bike shops in Manhattan, I can’t afford to waste time with dating. I have goals. That’s why I hate Ang. She’s infuriating, sexy, and complicated. All the things I cannot deal with right now. While we’re in Key West, I’ll indulge. Once we leave Key West, everything stops. That’s what I want.
