4 stars for the story

-A well deserved swan song for this two.

- The wedding preparation was a little disappointing , especially with Andreas Mom's drama. I wanted it to be all rainbows and kittens but well it is what it is, i still enjoyed it.

Andreas and Darren you will be missed.

Detectives Andreas Ruffner and Darren Corliss are facing their probably toughest challenge... Their upcoming wedding.

I waffled back and forth on this one but the vows and the fact that Andreas and Darren finally get their well deserved HEA are what tipped the scales from two to three hearts. But! I'm not big on wedding planning unless it's a comedy of errors and this was not that.

The wedding planning is stressful. It wore them down and it wore me down. Add to that Andreas's cuntisicle of a mother who never has a nice thing to say about anyone ever and I skimmed sections.

Honestly, I was expecting it to be f

Was this the last book in the series? If so, it was a nice ending for Darren Corliss (29) and Andreas Ruffner (midforties). But I sorta, kinda, wanted Darren and Andreas to get another kid - a child together, Darren's own blood. Other than that, this was a cute, romantic, short book that gave us a nice ending (if it is the end, that is) for the couple.
The vows might stop at death, but I knew deep down that the way I felt about Andreas never would. He was it f

What a great fourth installment to Andreas' and Darren's story. Not what I expected, but a great read, nonetheless. Wit and satire, family drama, and just a hint of darkness near the end. Perfect.

You definitely must read this series in order.

*4,5 stars*

After so many months of full-blown stress, exhaustion and injury, Andreas and Darren finally get some ‘normality’ back into their lives.
I swooned. And I swooned more. I think I may have ‘out-swooned’ myself.

The romantic side of Andreas, the sweetness of Darren, it all comes out in leaps and bounds now. Not even talking about their wedding vows, the way they fit and how brilliant they are together. And that very steamy wedding night … that was also well needed. It was nice that no darn

After subjecting Andreas and Darren to atrocious bodily damage, heartbreaking personal pain, and extreme blue balls, these authors are finally allowing the intrepid detectives time for simple happiness. Or are they? These authors are mean; mean I tell you! Not professionally this time, but inopportune phone calls haven’t ceased, and hunting down vicious criminals becomes more appealing than wedding planners and in-laws. Whether they make it from engagement to altar is predictably unpredictable.

**2.5 stars**

Damned…I was so excited for Darren and Andreas to get their HEA after all the ordeal, both professionally and personally, they had to go through since they first met. I LOVED the first three books of this series, a suspense romance featuring Darren and Andreas, two detectives who, despite their differences in age, in experience on the job and in personalities, are clearly made for each other.

However…this last part is all about the preparation of their wedding, with all the “supposed
Perfect. PERFECT. Just perfect!!!

This is the perfect epilogue to the series. Let's see what I can say without spoiling anything from the previous books.

The vows made me cry. *of course*

Because even if sometimes I doubt if I'm a true romance reader, when I come across a series like this one, with and ending like this one, I KNOW. I know I love romance. It makes my heart hurt and my lungs constrict because it's beautiful. It's one of the most beautiful things in life.

We have waited for this ... Darren & Andreas - finally drama free ( well excluding a lunatic mother/ in law ) and time to enjoy each other. I loved that these guys made it through so much and ensured their wedding was for them and not everyone else. Family dynamics were interesting and a high 5 goes out to Darren for giving Andreas’s mother some very honest feedback! Really enjoyed this one ❤️ ...more
4.3 Stars

Well, if that's the last one of the series I can certainly say it ended on a happy note! (Kinda hoping there's more, though...I love the way these two authors' style mesh so well.)
This was a lovely conclusion to Darren and Andreas love story. It was fluffier than I expected but overall cute and funny read. The whole wedding planning debacle was a bit over the top but I loved Darren when he stood up for everyone and told Andreas' mother off. That was my fave scene! The rest was sweet. I loved their wedding vows, it was all very romantic, both men got their happy ever after. So I will say goodbye. It has been fun!

Humorous, satisfying, and sweet!

Romantic Behavior is a light, easy read that takes us back into the world of Darren and Andreas where this time they’re not on a hunt for a serial killer or in a race to save lives, but instead they’re in a battle to say “I do.”

The writing is smooth and solid. The characters are determined, exhausted, and committed. And the plot, although a little less sexy than I would have liked, is filed with all the excitement and stresses of planning a wedding, including moth

3 stars! This was a quick read, no angst especially compared to crazy action in the last 3 books. However, I was expecting some more steam and emotion in this "Epilogue" book.. but it was just ok for me. I'm glad I'm done with this series.. I think I have changed my mind about L.A.Witt coz this entire series was very very low steam compared to her other work..
Audiobook review

3,5 stars

Andreas Ruffner and Darren Corliss are finally getting their happily ever after. Romantic Behavior picks up a few weeks after the vacation they left on in Reckless Behavior. If you ask me it can't really be read as a standalone, I don't think you'd enjoy it much if you did. And missing out on three awesome books might just be a crime.

Anyway Andreas and Darren are back home back at work and *gasp* back out at a restaurant, though sans kids to be kidnapped. To everyone's
Loved this ending! It had everything these guys needed!

Oh Toppy Darren I love him!

The Vows! Perfect!

So sad this series is over!!
4.5 stars

Ahhh okay! So, despite my constant frustration with basically no steam since book one in this series, this book finally, finally delivered on some much needed steam.


After almost three whole books - of interruptions, of injuries preventing sexy times, of too much shit going on, phone call after phone call ringing just when they're about to get into it - we fucking finally got a goddamn sex scene again! Woohoo!

Now, I know others weren't too bothered or frustrated by the lack of sex as me

This final installment in a fantastic series is sweet and romantic through and through. From the time Andreas gets the chutzpah to ask Darren to marry him—proving that he does have a romantic bone in his body!—to the point where the two lovers decide to take matters into their own hands, wrestling control of the wedding day away from Darren’s mom, it’s all wonderful.

This one was cute and sweet and low-angst. My reaction to wedding planning complications is always to wonder why they can't simplify and just drop stuff, but the family complications were entertaining and I liked seeing more of Andreas's kids. This has some moments of sweetness, some humor, some romance. Not a book to read alone, but it was nice to see the guys reap their rewards, after all they went through.
This book was so cute and the perfect ending for the series!

This was a really lovely story. It felt like the ending to the series (although I don't know that for sure). The previous three books have been action packed and have revolved around the crimes they're trying to solve. This one was all about Andreas and Darren and their upcoming wedding. No shoot outs, no drama, no sadness. Just these two being in love and being happy. It was filled with "Awww" moments and I really enjoyed it.

This last installment to “Bad Behavior” might not be as action-packed as other books in the series, but it is no less an appealing story; it’s funny, endearing, and heartwarming! As far away from deadly case as it is, “Romantic Behavior” - which evolved around Andreas and Darren going through the phase of tying the knot involving family and friends - entertains readers through their hassles in dealing with planning a wedding and meet the parents.

4.5 stars- One Big Happy Epilogue

Romantic Behavior read much like an extended epilogue, winding down from all the adversity, action, and suspense the couple faced over the past three novels of the Bad Behavior series. This novella picks up after the couple returns from the much needed island vacation they were leaving for as Reckless Behavior concluded. As such, this is definitely not a standalone novella.

The ‘Bad Behavior’ series is one of the most exciting and thrilling ones I have read in quite a while. The mystery, suspense, intrigue, action, adventure, love, and many injuries both characters racked up will go down as some of the most fun I’ve had in a while. Imagine my surprise and sheer glee, to realize the authors were going to give me a story just revolving around Darren and Andreas… getting married. I wasn’t sure my heart could take it - tongue in cheek.

This was such a cute ending to the Bad Behavior series, and I adored it. The only thing that prevented it from being 5 stars was the family drama. I get that Andreas and Darren were just trying to make their families happy, but they basically let Darren's mom walk all over them. It's a personal niggle, I think. I have a thing about family members sticking their nose into other people's weddings. Especially when the engaged couple is footing the bill. Couple pays=couple makes all the decisions.

Aside from the completely UNNECESSARY bits with Andreas' mum, this was such a short sweet book of our MCs finally getting their HEA after all the hassle of the 3 previous books.

I did this in audio and the narrator was as awesome as usual.
