Bad Boyfriend (Bad in Baltimore #2)
"Sometimes it's good to be bad. " Real "good."..
"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.

Opposites Attract?...Well yeah!!! And sometimes the chemistry is so ridiculously hot it could light up the Vegas strip!! Eli and Quinn...Whoooo Mercy.
At 35 years old, Quinn Maloney just got the life that he thought he had for the last ten years handed back to him by th...more
This book was fun, fast, and made me feel good. I spent the day in a chair with this book, and it was my best damn day the week I read it. I'd had a lot of good days that week too, so that's no light praise.
The emotional journey of both characters was just delicious. Their kinks fit so well, but their out-of-bed lives were what they had to work on meshing, and that's why this book was so wonderful. It was also a delightful tangle of roles and expe...more
I don't know anyone who is as good as KA Mitchell at making her characters feel like guys who could just walk off the page and visit with me over drinks at the bar. And they're real guys, not girly guys. Eli is a pretty twink and sexually submissive, wears eyeliner and black nail polish. He's also a caustic, scrappy sex magnet. Yeah he's a bit of a flamer, but no one would think of calling him a chick with a dick. On the other hand, hyper-masculine Quinn doesn'...more
Worlds away from the first book. I loved Eli! He's young, almost goth-like, submissive and takes no bullshit from anyone. He knows what he wants and goes after it. His relationship with Quinn was a natural fit. They were great together. The only issue I had was with Peter and his family. It was more than a bit far-fetched that his family just stayed quiet for 10 years about Peter and his relationship with Quinn. Other than this, I loved every bit of it.
You'll probably need to suspend disbelief about the Laurent family and their unparalleled ability to ignore huge pink elephants in the room and in their lives for years and years but hey, it's not our fault if they're determined to win the prize for "best cookie cutter-please don't burst our bubble" family in the state of Maryland.
Plus, it was probably that mentality that produced that je...more
3.5 strong stars.
I SO ADORE Quinn and Eli!!!! (<-although, reading a book about a (misspelled) “Quinn” this close to LaL release was distracting…but I got over it... :) )
“Bad Boyfriend” has the exact same story of 80% of the M/M books out there: an over-the-top villainization of a jerk ex-beau, a cutie-pie sassy twink w/ lips to die for, and a big muscled hunk who lives not entirely out of the closet. Throw in some opinionated best friends, a dysfunctional family, and some past my-family-kick...more
What i liked . . .
Great characters . . .loved Quinn and Eli, especially Eli . . .
Great chemistry . . .
Great building of a relationship. Really enjoyed how this was just a great romance!
Cast of secondary characters was fun. I may be tempted to read the first book now, not certain.
Smoking hot! ::fans self::
These two were very busy . . . Very busy!!
I laughed, I cried . . . I wanted to smack characters up side the head! Then I cried, laughed and cheered agai...more
I greatly enjoyed both MCs. Talk about opposites. Quinn is in his mid 30s and rebounding from a nasty break up. He's very deliberate in his actions, dependable, responsible and somewhat at a turning point in his life as to how he wants to p...more
About the book~IMO~
Eli and... ♥Ooh man I forgot his name....uhmmm, that's not good...okay maybe I forgot on purpose...Eli was such a push over for so long with him,I hated that.
But What I Liked~
I Liked Eli, Alot! A Whole Lot!!!
I liked the sweet D/s twist, that was well done and HOT as HELL!
I like how this writer always makes me laugh in her books, and this one was no exception.
I like the plot of Peter (He was a COLD MOF)~it was sooo cool and a freak'in fun ride.
I like Qhuinn and...more
This is the story of Dude aka Daddy and Goth Kid. I’ll overuse the F-word and talk about it in a minute, but first there’s something that struck me while reading this. I’ve read my fair share of erotica over the past year. Sometimes I whined about too much sex. Strangely, I never felt like I was reading porn. Until now. This book is one long chain of sex scenes and reads exactly like a porn movie script. I could almost hear the crappy po...more
Ok, so finally finished it.
I enjoyed this book so much more than Bad Company (which got 1.5 star from me). It is better written, the plot is actually believable and the characters are likable.
I liked how we see Quinn's character grow through the book - from this bland, I'll-do-anything-to-avoid-confrontation man, to a man not so repressed. At first I really hated Quinn and didn't get half of his reactions, but as the...more
I'm not going to give it a bad rating, because it might have been me rather than the book that was the problem.
For one, I couldn't get my head around the name Quinn. It was too Roald Dahl-esque for me.
Second, said Quinn never lit my fire because the author went out of her way to constantly describe his grey hair. Silver fox he may have been, but that's just not for me.
That wouldn't have mattered if Eli had been it for me, but he wasn't. He was too young and immature, and I just didn't...more
I am waffling back and forth about this KA Mitchell book. There were some elements I enjoyed (Nate and Kellan's reappearance, Quinn's character), but there were other elements I found predictable (Peter and Eli's characterizations were if-y for me as I found Peter to be too much of a d-bag and Eli too perfect). Add in the middle to heavy BDSM theme, which didn't really fly for me after Eli and Quinn's first encounter, and this book just isn't one of my favorite KA Mitchell's cre...more
Daddy play is not for me, so this book was a total turn off, plus the story was cliché, and excuse my French just a little fucked up.
I can’t imagine anyone that would be okay with being godparent to their cheating ex's child...well nobody that respects themselves.
I just can’t see Quinn going through with this, he was in the Navy, and now a High School teacher. You would assume there is some intelligence there, if not that then at least some pride.
This story was just too farf...more
The book is quite sweet, although I don't really like the premise.
Going to be an cheating ex' kid for christening and become godfather to the ex' child? I don't think it's fine. The author makes the situation so that it's believable, but I don't think the ex's child's christening is necessary for the plot.
There's many way to get a similar setting. The ex' family member getting married, or a mutual close friends getting married, and so on.
Still, not bad compared to the first book in the series.
And Eli. Ah, I love him. He is adorable, but don’t let that fool you because he is a strong motherfucker. He stands up for himself, can take care of himself, and he’s funny. The things that came out of his mouth were great, had me laughing so hard. He’s cheeky. Altho...more
Quinn and Peter share an apartment, a beloved old dog, and ten years’ worth of sex, history, and secrecy. Then comes the morning when Peter flatly says that this has never been who he really is—or what he really wants. And by the way, he’s been screwing around, and someone’s pregnant, and he’s...more

Eli Wright is a 23year-old boyish looking man who’s been struggling to make a living since his parents threw him out at 17 because he was gay. Since then he’s been couch surfing, tricking and charming his way through life. It’s a good thing he’s really cute, because people find it hard...more
The eyeliner makes the man. What am I talking about? Well, you need to read Bad Boyfriend to find out all the details, but trust me, it's worth the read.
KA Mitchell is one of my all time favorite authors. I know when I read one of her books, I'll laugh, cry, and want to bop someone over the head. This book is no exception. The writing flowed well and once I started the book, I refused to put it down. I had to know what would happen t...more
I was torn on this one. I loved Eli, I even liked Quinn mostly, but a few things didn't work for me. The whole Daddy in the bedroom is a gigantic squick for me. It's only worked in very few books and it tends to be in a 24/7 D/s relationship, not just in the bedroom. It's personal, some people like it or don't mind it. Then there was the whole relationship with the ex's family. I got the impression that the family knew Peter and Quinn were lovers (they certainly weren't surprised when h...more
