Blurb: Saving lives never used to be this complicated.

Gavin Montgomery does what’s expected of him by his wealthy and powerful family – look good in a tuxedo and don’t make waves. When a friend takes a leap off a bridge, Gavin tries to save him, only to fall in with him. At least at the bottom of the river he won’t feel like such a disap-pointment to his family. But he’s pulled from the water by a man with an iron grip, a sexy mouth, and a chip on his shoulder the size of the national deficit.

Jamie Donnigan likes his life the way it is – though he could have done without losing his father and giving up smoking. But at least he’s managed to avoid his own ball and chain as he’s watched all his friends pair off. When Montgomery fame turns a simple rescue into a media cir-cus, Jamie decides if he’s being punished for his good deed, he might as well treat himself to a hot and sweaty good time. It’s not like the elegant and charming Gavin is going to lure Jamie away from his bachelor lifestyle. Nobody’s that charming. Not even a Montgomery….

Review: Bad Attitude is the third book in KA Mitchell’s series Bad in Baltimore. This is only my third experience with both the author and the audio narrator, after recently listening to the audio of books one and two. Although there is reference to characters from the previous two books, this one will still work as a standalone book as there are not overarching plotlines.

I’ll start with the narration. And I really am repeating myself because the narration by Chet Daniel has been impressive and consistent throughout the series. He is a narrator that I will look forward to hearing more from in the future. I found myself easily getting lost in the narration and the characters and the voices given to the characters. Also, much like the first two books, the narration was easily the highlight of the book.

Alright, so comments on the story. Overall, I have to say that much like book two I enjoyed this third book quite a bit. Although both stories are very different and I cannot say which is better than the other. Once more, I found the MCs very likable in this story and of the three couples in this series, were the most relatable. Like the previous books, I will repeat myself in saying that the only thing that stopped me from enjoying this story to the maximum is the amount of sex scenes. I felt that there are a lot of drawn out sex scenes that tended to take away from the plot and slow things down quite a bit. But if you like the sex scenes, more power to you and you’ll probably find a lot of enjoyment in this book.

The story is about Jamie Donnigan and Gavin Montgomery. Jamie is an aquatic rescuer on the police force and the report of someone jumping off one of the city bridges has him meeting Gavin. Gavin is a rich boy and embodies all the stereotypes, although we quickly find out that he has hidden depths. Gavin has a horrible family who think he has jumped, and they don’t want the family name besmirched. The reality was that he jumped to save his friend who voluntarily went off the bridge on a madcap scheme. Gavin is actually a pretty good swimmer and is not just a rich party boy, he knows how to survive and that was why he was confident enough (sort of) to go after his friend instead of waiting for help. The case brings Jamie and Gavin together and the two men quickly give into the physical desire that sparks between them.

I recommend this book to people that like 1) lots of sex, and, 2) two guys who are complete opposites in social standings find out that they have a lot in common.

Blurb: Causing trouble has never been more fun.

Eli Wright doesn’t follow anyone’s rules. When he was 17, his parents threw him out of the house for being gay. He’s been making his own way for the past five years and he’s not about to change himself for anyone’s expectations. For now, romance can wait. There are plenty of hot guys to keep him entertained until he finds someone special.

Quinn Maloney kept the peace and his closeted boyfriend’s secrets for 10 years. One morning he got a hell of a wake-up along with his coffee. Not only did the boyfriend cheat on him, but he’s marrying the girl he knocked up. Inviting Quinn to the baby’s baptism is the last straw. Quinn’s had enough of gritting his teeth to play nice. His former boyfriend is in for a rude awak-ening, because Quinn’s not going to sit quietly on the sidelines. In fact, he has the perfect scheme, and he just needs to convince the much younger, eyeliner-wearing guy who winks at him in a bar to help him out.

Eli’s deception is a little too good, and soon he has everyone believing they’re madly in love. In fact, he’s almost got Quinn believing it himself….

Review: Bad Boyfriend is the second book in KA Mitchell’s series Bad in Baltimore. This is only my second experience with both the author and the audio narrator, after recently listening to the audio of book one. Although this is the second book in the series I do not think that it is vital to read the previous book and works well as a standalone novel.

So firstly, the narration. Much like book one I was left very impressed by the narration by Chet Daniel. He is certainly a narrator that I will look forward to hearing more from. I found myself easily getting lost in the narration and the characters and the voices given to the characters. Also, much like book one, the narration was easily the highlight of the book.

I must admit, that I enjoyed this second book better than the first book. I think that the MCs were much more likable in this story and their outlandish scheme was much easier to swallow. The main thing that I didn’t gel with in this book was the amount of sex scenes. I felt that there were a number of random sex scenes that didn’t really help to bring the plot forward, when really in some instances a few paragraphs of conversation would have sufficed. But if you like the sex scenes, more power to you and you’ll probably find a lot more enjoyment in this book.

The story starts with Eli, who is a photographer for Nate from book one. Eli Wright has never been one to follow rules and he isn’t shy to be himself. He knows that there is nothing worth him not ever being his true self. He eventually wants love but for now he isn’t on the look out for Mr Right.

Quinn Maloney is quite the opposite. He lived in the closet for ten years to absolutely everyone, despite being best friends with his ex’s family. His ex was too scared of being himself. Quinn’s world is shattered when he is not only dumped, but he finds out that his cheating ex has got a woman pregnant and “is doing the right thing and marrying her”. That sucks, but what is more fucked up is how his ex manipulates Quinn and keeps him captive despite not being together any more. So when he is invited to be godfather to the ex’s kid, he proposes his hook-up, Eli, to join him and pretend to be his boyfriend. Not only that, Quinn wants Eli to go all out with his act. Eli figures that will be fun but goes in blind without a lot of the facts. This is the start of a roller coaster that ignites the spark of attraction between the guys.

I am aware that I am using the word outlandish a lot to explain the scenario concocted by the MCs in this story, but it the best I got at the moment. Quinn has a really strange and twisted relationship with his ex, while he considers the ex’s family to be his closest friends and allies. I understand that bit, I’ve seen in real life a couple instances where despite the couple separating they are still friends with the full disclosure of everyone else/new spouses. Strangely enough it works. In this case it was the whole thing of Quinn being dragged into the wedding party and being the godfather to his ex’s kid. That was just weird, but I went with it mostly because I really liked both Eli and Quinn and thought that they were well matched.

I recommend this book to people that like 1) lots of sex, and, 2) two guys pretending to be in love because they’ve concocted an outlandish scenario.

Blurb: Some things are sweeter than revenge.

“I need a boyfriend.”

Hearing those words from his very straight, very ex-best friend doesn’t put Nate in a helpful mood. Not only did Kellan Brooks’s father destroy Nate’s family in his quest for power, but Kel-lan broke Nate’s heart back in high school. Nate thought he could trust his best friend with the revelation that he might be gay, only to find out he was horribly wrong and become the laugh-ingstock of the whole school. Kellan must be truly desperate if he’s turning to Nate now.

Kellan’s through letting his father run his life, and he wants to make the man pay for cutting him off. What better way to stick it to the bigot than to come out as gay himself—especially with the son of the very man his father crushed on his quest for money and power. Kellan can’t blame Nate for wanting nothing to do with him, though. Kellan will have to convince him to play along, but it’s even harder to convince himself that the heat between them is only an act….

Review: Bad Company is the first book in KA Mitchell’s series Bad in Baltimore. I’ve not read anything in the past by Mitchell but I was nonetheless intrigued reading the blurb and I was happy to become invested in a new series. For that matter, Chet Daniels as the narrator of the audiobook was also a new experience for me, so I really went into this one blind.

So firstly, the narration. I was quite impressed by the narration. I found myself easily getting lost in the narration and the characters and the voices given to the characters. For me the narration was easily the highlight of the book. Daniels’ voice was entertaining and quite honestly kept me going because I have a suspicion that if I were to read this story it would be a reluctant finish at best, or a did not finish at worst.

I’m going to explain those comments before I go into discussing the story. Basically, there are a lot of sex scenes in this book that go on for long chapters. If that’s you’re thing, this is probably going to be one hot read. However, for me, it’s not really my thing, so while I enjoyed the story for the most part the sex scenes popping up (especially at points where I wanted the plot to move forward) were annoying at times.

As for the story itself, we follow the romance between Kellan and Nate. Kellan and Nate were best friends once upon a time when they were kids, but Kellan’s uber rich father destroyed Nate’s father’s livelihood and stole his idea/patent, which was compounded by the fact that Kellan never stood up for Nate in high school when he was bullied for being gay.

Now that they are adults, Kellan is a rich boy and more than a tad arrogant and selfish. His father is an arsehole and the two butt heads, ending in Kellan with no money, no car and no place to live. He is homeless. All Kellan wants is revenge on his father, who also does not approve of Kellan being gay. So Kellan throws himself at the mercy of his ex-best friend, who is now a successful newspaper editor and the two concoct a plan that will allow Nate to do an expose on Kellan’s father, and Kellan can get his revenge on his father.

I had trouble with the storyline, because it was hard to suspend my disbelief to believe that this hare-brained scheme would work in any world. Kellan was also a difficult character to warm up to, and in some respects so was Nate. They’re both contrary sort of blokes but they did have a chemistry that made their romance work. Nonetheless, I enjoyed the audio enough that I am willing to go on and give the rest of the series a go. It’s not uncommon that a narrator will allow me to enjoy a book that I normally wouldn’t be able to finish if I read it.

I recommend this book to people that like 1) lots of sex, and, 2) friends-to-enemies-to-lovers type scenario (which was honestly the draw for me).

Review: David has done many stupid things in his life and they always ended horribly. After a coma, broken leg and looking at jail time, I think he has hit rock bottom. Now he is stuck wearing a monitoring bracelet stuck on his ankle and a probation officer. Doesn’t stop him from going to a bar and drinking a coke. Nor does it stop him from getting a little action. He is behaving but damn it is hard. Then he finds out that the sexy man from his little night was no other than his new probation officer.

Tai wasn’t sure whether he was more shocked or the man standing in front of him was. His one night stand was none other than one of his cases. His job was on the line and so was his heart. He was a dom and he has found his sub, now if only they can keep it from the higher ups from finding out.

I am not one for BDSM in my stories but sometimes you find an author who can write it well. I am not completely sure if I liked it in this story or some of it. The caning was a little over the top and so was David’s reaction in someways I think. I definitely know that I did not care for his best friends boyfriend, that guy was an ass. David can screwup with the best of them, but his heart is in the good. I enjoyed the overall story line quite a bit. It gave me everything I could want in a story, and lets just say I hope his father gets it in the end.

I found myself enjoying this story more than I thought I would. It was very entertaining and I loved David the most. Tai was a bit harder on him then I thought, but hey it is David’s idea.

I got a blast reading this and can’t wait for the next book.

Reviewer: Lisa

Review: When I came across this story I had a different thought on the series name.  I was thinking paranormal what with Knot added in, but never did I think marriage.  I hadn’t even realized that I was getting ready to read book three, so I didn’t read the first two stories.  Which isn’t a good thing for me, because I felt like I had missed some of the reactions and reasons from everyone in the book.  For me, this is the first time I have read anything from this author, so I was no really sure what to expect.  I am not a fan of reading books by people I have not read before.  Most of the time I choose by title or series, thinking one thing and finding out that my dumb ass should have read the blurb.  With this story I went ahead and read it because of the fact that one of the guys had cancer.  It was meant to be an emotional book for me.  However I am at odds with it.   

My attention was not as stuck on this book as it should have been.  The open relationship is what made the story flop for me.  I have never really got into books where one or both of the guys think’s sleeping with others was hot.  So it threw the story off to me.  However Dane is a little bit of a flake, whereas Gideon comes off as a fool in some parts.  Dane has cancer and has a few more chemo sessions to go through.  The problem is his insurance is about to expire and it will leave him without.  So him and his long-time boyfriend are getting married.  The problem is at the alter Spencer chickens out.  

In steps Dane’s best friend and best man, Gideon.  Now Gideon has been in love with Dane for some time.  They have a sexual relationship, but it seems to be offset with the fact that he is in love with the man.  Now Dane is in love with Gideon although he fights it that is until the end.  So Gideon decides to do what is right and marries Dane himself, so that Dane has insurance.  Now I can see why they did it, but I also see how wrong in different directions.  I am just glad that the ending turned out as expected.    

Overall the story is pretty good, but for me there were some parts that I just didn’t much care for.  As I have said I don’t care for open relationships in my stories so that dropped it down quite a bit.  Also the story just fell flat for me, because the sex that was added in, felt like it was just thrown in there for word count.  There was no true heat and definitely no passion to be seen, although the cancer can be blamed for that.  There should have still been something showing me that they really desired each other.  I am afraid that this story just didn’t do it for me.

Blurb: In a life full of yes, no is the sexiest word he’s ever heard.

David Beauchamp might as well be in jail. After one too many misunderstandings with the law, he’s chained to the city by the GPS and alcohol sensor strapped to his ankle. Awaiting trial, cut off from usual forms of entertainment, he goes looking for a nameless sexual encounter—and winds up with almost more than he can handle.

Reality comes crashing back the next day with a summons for another random drug test, and the man behind the badge turns out to be the very man who took him for one hell of a ride.

Probation Officer Tai Fonoti is used to handling other people’s problems, but he’s horrified when one of the clients his boss dumps on him is the sweet piece of ass he screwed the night before. It makes getting a urine sample a pretty loaded situation.

That single encounter left Beach craving Tai’s unique brand of control and discipline. But while Tai relishes laying down the law in the bedroom, the letter of the law stands between them and kinkily ever after.

Warning: This book is kinky. I mean kinky. With lots of sex. It describes a fully consensual, intense D/s relationship, which changes a character’s life. It includes impact play and bondage along the way to a very happily ever after.

Reviewer:GiGi

Review: I love it when a bratty man finds someone to lay down the law! In this case, both figuratively and literally, David “Beach” Beauchamp finds that very man for him. Not only does Tai have a kink for control in the bedroom, he can’t help but let it carry over into all aspects in his life. He trains and controls dangerous creatures, from the probation participants that are part of his job, to a dog rescue with a violent past. Tai’s ability to train and dominate oozes from his pores.

Beach is a player. He doesn’t take relationships, jobs, or his life seriously and rebels at every corner. The only thing keeping him tethered to reality and avoiding another bad decision is his ankle bracelet, ordered by the court; until he meets Tai. From a wealthy background, with a troubled past, we’re painted a picture of a brat who is so careless; he’s starting to pull his friends down with him.

His bathroom trick in a local bar gives him a taste and dominance that’ he’s been subconsciously yearning for, too bad it’s his parole officer he’s craving.

Beach decides to attempt a bit of blackmail with his parole officer only to get shot down with a definite no, to his actions, and his bad behavior. Turns out hearing “no,” is almost as big a turn on as the domination Tai gave him in that bathroom. Soon the two tumble into further exploration of Beach’s need for dominance, that bleeds out of the bedroom and into everyday life.

As Beach explores his need for Tai’s dominance, Tai fears failure the likes of which he recently experienced with his ex. Not only does he question his ability to handle and train Beach, he worries about the trouble he knows he could get into with his job.

The sexual content is very steamy, especially if you like the D/s kink as I do! There are some S/M scenes involving punishment that are difficult for both Tai and David, but really seem to help define their relationship.

Lots and lots of tangles, and twists, especially as Tai uncovers David/Beach’s past. There are many surprises and lots of characters I know come from other books in this adventurous, fast-paced series. I have not read the other Bad in Baltimore books, and I know they would add another level to Mitchell’s storytelling, yet Bad Behavior is written well enough to stand alone.

Definitely worth a read and I look forward to cracking open the other four books in this series too!

Bad in Baltimore, Book 2

After Eli Wright came out, his parents threw him out. In the five years since, he’s made his own way, lived by his own rules, determined to never change himself—not for anyone. He’s not against finding Mr. Right, but Mr. Right Now will do just fine.

Quinn Maloney’s reward for ten years of faithfully keeping his closeted boyfriend’s secrets? A hell of a wake-up call to go with his morning coffee. Not only did Peter have affairs, he went straight to marry his pregnant girlfriend—and Quinn was to never reveal their history.

With the baby’s baptism looming and Quinn expected to put on a polite front, he decides he’s had enough of playing the peacekeeper. One wink from a much younger, eyeliner-wearing guy in a bar, and Quinn’s found a perfectly outrageous date for the occasion.

The date goes better than he ever imagined. And so much worse, as Eli convinces everyone they’re madly in love. That wasn’t part of the plan, but the more Quinn learns about the man behind the makeup, the more he wishes it was true.

Product Warnings

Contains an absolute bastard of an ex-boyfriend. Not responsible for sudden uncontrollable urges to punch him in the teeth. Also not responsible for any overheating or sudden urges brought about by explicit sex with a little BDSM thrown in.

Reviewer:   Portia

Review:  I can honestly say, I have never read a K. A. Mitchell book that I didn’t like.  Bad Boyfriend has everything that I’ve come to expect from K.A. Mitchell; namely, a very well-written story with believable characters who muddle through to their HEA.

Strictly speaking, this is Quinn’s story.  He’s the first character we meet and I instantly pegged him as the sweet guy next door.  Then enters Peter.  From scene one, he rubbed me the wrong way and I kept my fingers crossed that Mitchell had a nice house fire planned, he could be trapped in.  No such luck.

But, luckily, Peter was dumb as a brick and dumps poor Quinn.  If he hadn’t, Quinn wouldn’t have met Eli and despite their differences, Eli is perfect for Quinn.

The guys from Bad Company feature quite heavily in Bad Boyfriend.  But, if you didn’t read book one of this series, Bad Company, Bad Boyfriend still works as a standalone.

This was really an enjoyable read.  Emotionally, it was a lot more angsty than the holiday novellas I’ve been gouging on this week.  And there were a few instances where my Kindle was in danger of being thrown across the room.  I hate when men make bone-headed decisions, because they’re too proud to ask questions.   But, obviously, that is a fabulous plot device, designed especially to endanger Kindles all over the world.

Highly recommending this title.
