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

In this 5th installment of the Bad in Baltimore series by K.A. Mitchell, we zoom in on enfant terrible David ‘Beach’ Beauchamp. The latter’s sole occupation in life is keeping the family lawyer in business. And since his adventurous streak results in plenty brushes with the law, he’s pretty damn good at what he does. Yeah, our Beach here would probably have ended up in a downward spiral at one point or another in his life if it weren’t for a lucky — make that unlucky — coincidence… When he enjoy ...more
Hot damn.

Somebody pass me an after-the-really-hot-sex-cigarette.

Never mind I don't smoke.
3.5 stars rounded down.

Not as mediocre as Bad Attitude, but still slightly too long and with a barely there plot. I liked the characters though. Even the dog had a certain appeal.


Past ramblings

The BDSM won't deter me. Nope. Not even the dud that was the previous instalment in this series can stop me from reading this. Bring it.
I've enjoyed many a K.A. Mitchell book in my m/m romance reading day but I have to admit that this was one I had mixed feelings about. I will say that this installment in the "Bad in Baltimore" books was better than the last, which I DNF-ed, but still, I didn't love it.

There were certain aspects of the story that I did like very much. For instance, I really liked Tai a lot as a character. He was a good guy (and a good Dom) who tried hard to stay on the straight and narrow (and away from that tr

I finished this about a week ago and for the most part I liked it. Tai and Beach are a perfect match. Tai is a long time Dom and has an innate need to take care of people. Beach discovers his submissive nature and is in serious need of direction. Tai provides the control Beach desires. What I found lacking was how Beach dealt with this new lifestyle. It was mentioned that he was conflicted and at times even felt ashamed, but that was as far as it went. The story didn't delve far enough for me. I ...more

I did a joint review for this one with my fellow blogger MinnChica.

Heller: The Bad in Baltimore series has been a bit of a rollercoaster for me. I loved Eli and Quinn and my love of those characters has carried me through the ups and downs in the rest of the books. I went into this read disliking Beach…a hardcore dislike of his actions and his personality. I was curious if Mitchell could turn him around into a person that I could care about. Turn him around she did. I may not love David/Bea

4.5 stars

I was actually a pretty big Beach fan up until this point. There was just something about him, like there was a lot more to his story. So, I was really excited to get to this one.

Beach is tricky. He seems like the guy who has it all - money, looks, attitude. But he's missing something. He is a bit self-destructive, and unfortunately, he brings his friends into trouble with him. Now, he is on probation, with an ankle bracelet chaining him.

2.5 stars rounded down because although this started off well, it fizzled about the halfway mark, and felt overworked/repetitious well before I got to the end. The thin plot is not enough to support a 350+ page story. As far as the BDSM goes, this is fairly basic protocol laden D/s, and so my rating also suffers from the feeling like I've seen too much of the same thing before.

ETA: Too much of the ensemble cast of previous books appeared in this one. Irritating.

I gave this a try and got to about 30%. I honestly didn't like either of the MCs and since this series isn't my favorite, I thought I'd cut my loses.

Really an interesting addition to this series. Sexy and full of delicious conflict. I enjoyed.
I almost didn't give this book a try because of some of the reviews I've read - but I'm happy to report that for me this was an outstanding read. There are a few things about this book that made it well above average for me and interestingly these things seem to be exactely the aspects that did not work for others. Hm. So your mileage may vary.

The relationship arc is exquisitely paced for me. The progress is, after the roaring start, quite slow, yes - but exactely the small shifts and sometimes

It seemed to take ages to read this one, and I am not sure why. Bad Behaviour has all the elements of a strong read - lots of kinky kinks, lots of angst and a big dog.

But where as the other Baltimore books have great interactions with some of the other couples, apart from Gavin, our glimpses of the others are sadly small (mostly Jamie, Eli and Quinn).

But this reflects the truth of David's life. He just hangs around the sidelines of this family. His only connection is Gavin, and with his life in
My brain is super fuzzy (in case any of you are wondering straining a muscle in your back is a bad, bad thing but the resulting drug combo of muscle relaxers and painkillers is awesome. True facts: I love everyone in this bar right about now) so I'm going to rely on the notes I made while I read for this review.

First off...Beach. David. Whatever you want to call him, just call him mine. I adore him. I adore him. He seriously threatened Eli's position as my fave. David will forever henceforth be

David Beauchamp, Beach, has been the epitome of bad boy from the moment he made his first appearance in 'Bad Attitude'. A wealthy, arrogant, born with a platinum spoon in his mouth, and the rules don't apply to me, bad to the bone, baddest of them all bad boy. Personally, I think Beach desperately needs someone to take control, to give him focus, and to harness all that energy he uses to get into a lot of trouble with the law. It sounds to me as if Beach is going to meet his match in Officer ...more
Bad Behavior is the fifth book in K.A. Mitchell's Bad in Baltimore series. We've met Beach before and he wasn't a terribly likable character in when we did. He seemed self absorbed, irresponsible and quite childish, so going into this book I wondered just how the author would turn it around. Well, he is all of those things, but we learn he goes deeper than that.

David Beauchamp has spent his entire life not only feeling like a waste of oxygen, but pretty much being told that. His family is the wo
Pleasantly surprised right now. I felt like this series had been declining for awhile. The books were decent, but I wasn't loving them as much as the earlier books in the series. I really really enjoyed this one. I felt for Beach in this book. He's so twisted up in his own mind he doesn't know whether he's coming or going and it's gotten him into trouble. His experience with Tai finally allow him to settle in his own head.

Look, in past books Beach was an ass and an idiot. He's paying for it whe

I liked this a lot. It was nice to see what was going on in Beach's head after witnessing his crazy antics in previous books and good to see him finally getting himself together. It was also nice to check in with the other characters without them taking over the story. Beach and Jamie fighting were hilarious! There were also some interesting new characters introduced that I could stand to see more of. Whoever the next book ends up being about, I'll definitely read it.

I usually do not like BDSM, but in this story it fascinated me because there was a psychological aspect to it. I also liked a lot the characters, especially because of the introduction of a sexy, arrogant, very-sure of himself interracial character of which we have to few. And if you combine it with a brat that is need of attention, affection and a firm hand --I'm in.

I liked the MCs, just didn't love them together. It started off amazing but didn't hold my interest.Plus there were too many logistics of the Dom/Sub relationship of the characters. If that's your thing, then that is the book for you.

This is the fifth book of the Bad in Baltimore series and we’re finally getting the story of the bad little rich boy we love, David “Beach” Beachamp. Last time we saw him he was in trouble with the law and his best friend. Well, he’s still in trouble with the law. He’s out of jail with a nifty little ankle bracelet and a curfew. Which is how he’s reunited with hid last hook up, a rough and sexy hook up from the bar. Who also happens to be his new Paro

My Review:
Beach is a tough character to understand and like. At first glance, he's a shallow, rich, party-boy who thinks of no one but himself. There were times when I was reading him and felt so awful for him, but then he'd do or think something totally wrong and I'd begin to question him again and if I was wrong to like him. That conundrum made it a bit difficult to settle into the rhythm of this story. Ultimately, you get to know who Beach really is, but it's not an easy road to get there. Un

It’s not a big secret that I am a huge K.A. Mitchell fan, just as it isn’t a big secret that I’m NOT a huge BDSM fan, either. So, imagine my surprise when a D/s heavy novel grabs me by my neck and shoves the allure right down my throat. This book was hot! I am a vanilla girl who now wants her own Dominant Samoan. How did that happen? I’ll tell you how…K.A. Mitchell is a kinky lady who knows how to put words to paper and make you believe, and desire to know more, be more, and wa

I received Bad Behavior in exchange for a fair and honest review.

The past couple of books I’ve read I’ve started in the middle of their series. I normally try to avoid that for obvious reasons. Sometimes though it pays off. Bad Behavior is the 5th book in K.A. Mitchell’s Bad in Baltimore series and even though it was a tough one to read, I’m glad I started here. I’ll get to my reason later in the review.

Beach appears to be the typical spoiled, rich brat, on the surface. Like everyone else, the

As the blurb says, this book is about a D/s relationship, and I fully agree with the “intense” part of the description. The actual scenes, whether full BDSM or merely slightly kinky sex, were scorching hot and numerous; and things became pretty emotional pretty fast between Tai and Beach/David (which is a very important distinction). I also liked how Tai wasn’t the never-failing uber-Dom; for all his taking-care, dominant attitude, he had also some very real human traits. In parts, I was totally ...more

There is something to be said about an Author that can tackle the issues Mitchell took on with this story and still convey a well written aspect of two mens lives. I really enjoyed how Mitchell portrayed an interracial couple without making the story cliche or grandiose, which often happens, thank you for that.

While David struggles with the choices he has made in his life that have led him to where he is, Tai struggles with his attraction to David and the fact that he is David's parole officer.
Oct 22, 2014 Anne rated it really liked it
Bad Behavior was the first book I've read by Mitchell and I really enjoyed it because it so rare to find a full length D/s book, especially one that deals with a character new to the scene so we could follow along as he (in this case David/Beach) discovers his submissiveness and kinks. It's not all instant "I love everything you do to me and I'm an expert at what you need me to be/do". Because of that, the pace is slower than the usual novella of this story type and it took me a bit to gear ...more

Ok, nothing will ever be as great as Eli in this series but this was still a fantastic read and I pretty much devoured it last night. I love BDSM books that really play with the *specific dynamic* of the two characters, and really work out what it is that they want/need/like/dislike, rather than just assuming that every relationship is the same. While still being a sweet and lovely book, not a technical manual!

I liked Beach much, much more than I thought I would, and Tai was a sweetheart, but m
DNF. I enjoy many BDSM books but this one has way too much humiliation in it for my tastes. I've encountered it in other books and I always feel pissy when I read it. I just want to tell the Dom to get over himself. Definitely not my kink. I also dislike the BDSM books that include the subs having to disrobe and kneel while waiting for the Dom to come home. Since I didn't care about the characters I didn't bother trying to get beyond my own hard limits in order to finish the book.

I have no clue why the use of "boy" is becoming a pet peeve for me... but this is the second or third book that I have read recently that uses it to almost excess... grrr

Other than that... this was a great read! Now we wait till she gets around to putting the next book in this series out! UGH!
This was delicious, very kinky, very angtsy and with all the mens of Baltimore I like to visit with in the mix...I hope this series keeps going for awhile!
