Indulge your inner vixen…
Meet the Bad Boys… Four sinfully sexy, fiercely loyal, uber alpha brothers about to fall head over heels for their leading ladies. If dirty talk, cursing, or raw, passionate sex turns you off, the After Dark books are not for you, because everything’s naughtier after dark.
Amanda Jenner is done being a boring-man magnet and has finally taken control of her love life. As any smart paralegal would, she’s researched the hell out of how to seduce a man. She’s waxed, primped, and ready to put her newfound skills into action—and a masquerade bar crawl is the perfect venue for her solo coming-out party.
Entertainment attorney Mick Bad lives by two hard and fast rules. He never mixes business with pleasure, and he doesn’t do relationships, which makes the anonymity of a masquerade bar crawl the perfect place for a onetime hookup.
Amanda thinks she’s hit the jackpot when she bags a tall, dark, and sinfully delicious masked man—until she discovers the man she’s made out with is her off-limits boss. Mick’s already crossed a line he can never uncross, and one taste of sweet and sexy Amanda has only whet his appetite. When Mick offers to give Amanda a lesson in seduction—no strings, no regrets, and for goodness’ sake, come Monday, no quitting—the tables turn, and Mick’s totally unprepared for the lessons this sweet temptress provides.
Thank you to Lisa for letting me take part in this tour. I’ve previously read most of Melissa’s books including her Wild Boys (After Dark) series which this series is linked to.
We have previously met one of the Bad brothers, Dylan, in Logan’s book. This book follows his older brother Mick. Mick became the head of the family after his father left. He kept the family together, he made sure his brothers were ok when all he wanted to do was fall apart. Mick vowed to never be like his father. He vowed not to have a relationship or a family because he doesn’t want to let them down like his father did. Mick however did not bargain on falling in love with Amanda.
Sweet Amanda is Mick’s paralegal. she’s been in love with him for 3 years but knows that there is no way she can have him. Sick of dating boring safe ment Amanda decides it’s time to turn naughty. She’s done her research and prepared her body from head to toe. What Amanda isn’t prepared for is that the mystery man she tries to seduce is none other than her out of bounds boss, Mick.
Mick offers Amanda one weekend of naughtiness. One weekend of everything he knows he can’t have and then they return to their lives.
I spent half my time while reading this book wanting to scream at these two. They were perfect for each other if only they gave it a chance. I really enjoyed reading their story and seeing Mick open up to Amanda.
I’m really looking forward to reading the rest of the Bad boy’s stories.
LURED BY THE pulse of sex and anonymity, Amanda Jenner moved through the dusky bar, brushing against silk, satin, cotton, and flesh, each graze feeding the adrenaline coursing through her veins. Blue lights misted over sweaty strangers lost in the seductive bump and grind of foreplay and hoping for a night of erotic pleasure. If Amanda tried hard enough, she could smell tomorrow’s scent du jour—regret. Tonight she had no room for the confidence-crushing worry of what tomorrow would bring. She scanned the crowd, as she had in the previous three bars, immediately dismissing anyone who wasn’t in costume. Her world was full of boring men who excelled at wining, dining, and boring her to sleep. Ten years of romance novels and movies had led her astray, sending her on a search for the elusive needle in a haystack. She’d led herself astray, always the careful thinker, careful dresser. Or as her younger sister, Ally, would say, Careful kisser, careful lover. Ally, however, had taken charge of her sex life—and she’d found the perfect man.
Now it’s my turn.
