Book Description

In the five years since his parents threw him out for coming out, Eli has made his own way, determined to never change himself for anyone. He’s not against finding Mr. Right, but Mr. Right Now will do just fine.

After Quinn’s boyfriend leaves him to marry a pregnant girlfriend, he has no intention of putting on a polite front at the baby’s christening. He’s bringing the most outrageous date he can find—Eli. Falling in love wasn’t part of the plan, but Eli plays his madly-in-love role so convincingly, Quinn finds himself wishing it was true.

More About the Author

At a very early age, K.A. Mitchell decided that Ken and G.I. Joe made a much cuter couple than Ken and Barbie and was perplexed when invitations to play Barbie fell off sharply. Today she still loves hanging out with imaginary friends and making up stories. Even better, people pay her to read about them. Now the author of over twenty gay romances, she guarantees happy endings for even the surliest of heroes, despite all their baggage.

For ten years, Quinn kept his partner's secret while Peter stayed firmly in the closet. In return, he gets sucker punched by Peter when he informs Quinn that he not only cheated on him, but that he is leaving Quinn to marry the woman he got pregnant. Quinn, who has been a part of Peter's family for a long time, is expected to put up a good front and keep Peter's secret. Quinn dutifully does...until he's asked to be the baby's godfather. With the baptism only a day away, Quinn has had enough. He's going to show up and make a statement - and what better statement can there be than showing up with the young, gorgeous, eyeliner-wearing guy he picks up at a club?

Eli is nothing like Peter, which doesn't just mean good things for Quinn in bed. Eli's quick, kinky and can put on a good show. He convinces Peter's family that he and Quinn are madly in love. What neither man expects is for Eli's lie to slowly turn to truth. But each man has baggage from their past that just might ruin their shot at a future.

"What doesn't kill you makes you stronger" is a saying that holds true for both heroes in BAD BOYFRIEND. Author K.A. Mitchell puts both Quinn and Eli through the wringer, but manages to do so without ever dragging the buoyant BAD BOYFRIEND down. Quinn has a horrible ex that definitely deserves to be punched - repeatedly. Eli's background is even harder. He's been on his own since high school when his parents threw him out for being gay. He's made his own way in the world, refusing to play by any rules but his own and - when he's with Quinn - he is never anyone but his true self. I love all these things about Eli. Ms. Mitchell broke my heart and then made me smile with both Eli and Quinn.

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.

This is one of the stories by this writer that I enjoyed overall. And she is usually hit or miss for me, because in quite a few of her stories I want to start cutting out pages of sex, sex and more sex. While this one has a lot of sex scenes as well, after I finished the story Eli and Quinn stayed in my mind, their interesting personalities and great chemistry. I even liked this one more than Bad company and I did like that one as well.

This is the first novel that I have read from K.A. Mitchell and I wasn't disappointed. I really liked both of the main characters and I appreciated learning more about their pasts. One thing I also really enjoyed was the side characters. I felt we could have got to know them more in depth, but at least they were there and the main characters interacted with them. In so many romance novels there are so few side characters, or you don't care about them, so I was happy with the change.

In addition, the dialogue flowed well and while there was a lot of sex it didn't swallow the rest of the story. A warning to some though, Eli does call Quin daddy while they are having sex a few times. It's clearly expressed as a game and not done throughout the book, but that may bother some readers.

I'm looking forward to reading more of this author's books.

BAD BOYFRIEND can be read as a stand-alone, but I'm afraid you won't get the most out of the story that you could if you had read the first book in the series, BAD COMPANY. The cast of characters is large when Peter's family is thrown in the mix, and who met whom and when is important. Some of that detail was in the first book, leaving you to struggle in the second one without that information.
This is a character-driven novel and series. I am very attached to these characters and eager to find out what happens next. The next installment of BAD IN BALTIMORE can't get here soon enough for me! I read everything by Ms Mitchell, but this series is at the top of my wish list.
