Bad Attitude

Bad in Baltimore, Book 3

‘Bad Attitude’ is the third book in the Bad in Baltimore series by K. A. Mitchell. This is the story about Jamie Donnigan and Gavin Montgomery. Gavin Montgomery is the middle son of the most powerful family in town. His role in life is look good and do not make waves. Things do not go as planned when his friend jumps off a bridge and he falls in with him. Police rescue diver Jamie Donnigan saves his life.

Jamie is a working on not smoking after the loss of his father to lung cancer. He is bold and makes little excuses for who and what he is. Gavin has a wild streak. He finds trouble without even looking for it.

The sex scenes were very hot. The chemistry between them is off the charts even though they both act as if they do not want or like each other. They are opposites with little in common outside the bedroom. Gavin and Jamie are so opposites at times it makes you wonder about the long-term possibilities.

Overall, this was a great book. The author did a wonderful job creating different and engaging characters that draw you into the book. There are many secondary characters I cannot wait to read about.

*Possible spoiler

The one big problem I had with this story is Gavin’s friend Beach who took a tumble off the bridge and was in a coma for several weeks if not a month. Then he wakes up and within a day or so walks out of the hospital. That is not believable in the least.

Book Blurb for Bad Attitude

When did save a life become change a life?

As the openly gay middle son of the most powerful family between Manhattan and Miami, Gavin Montgomery knows his role—look good in a tuxedo and don’t make waves.

Waves are the least of his worries when he tries and fails to keep a friend from jumping off a high bridge. His last thought as he falls in too is that someone else will have to take over as family disappointment…until 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.

Police rescue diver Jamie Donnigan finally has life the way he wants it. Okay, he could have done without losing his father, quitting smoking and watching his friends drift into couplehood. At least he’s managed to escape that particular trap.

When Gavin’s father turns Jamie’s routine rescue into a media circus, he figures if he’s going to suffer for his good deed, he might as well enjoy a roll in the sack. But Jamie’s not immune to Gavin’s cultivated charm…and all the risks that come along with giving in to it.

Warning: Includes above the recommended daily allowance for snark, attitude, stubbornness and a variety of scorching hot sex (even for this author).
