Bad Boys After Dark: Mick
Indulge your inner vixen...
You asked for naughtier lovers, with the same fierce loyalty as The Bradens - Meet the Bad Boys... Four sinfully sexy, uber alpha brothers, about to fall head over heels for their leading ladies.
Everything's naughtier after dark...
Amanda Jenner is done being a boring-man magnet and has finally taken control of her love life. As any smart paralegal would, she's researched the hell out of how to seduce a man. She's waxed, primped, and ready to put her newfound skills into action--and a masquerade bar crawl is the perfect venue for her solo coming-out party.
Entertainment attorney Mick Bad lives by two hard and fast rules. He never mixes business with pleasure, and he doesn't do relationships, which makes the anonymity of a masquerade bar crawl the perfect place for a onetime hookup.
Amanda thinks she's hit the jackpot when she bags a tall, dark, and sinfully delicious masked man--until she discovers the man she's made out with is her off-limits boss. Mick's already crossed a line he can never uncross, and one taste of sweet and sexy Amanda has only whet his appetite. When Mick offers to give Amanda a lesson in seduction--no strings, no regrets, and for goodness' sake, come Monday, no quitting--the tables turn, and Mick's totally unprepared for the lessons this sweet temptress provides.
I got a kick out of Amanda's idea to get out of the boring-man rut and have a red-hot fling for one night, especially the fact that she was following the advice of The Handbook: Release Your Inner Temptress and various websites for tips on how to flirt. Unfortunately for Amanda (or fortunately), the gentleman she almost hooks up with is none other than her boss, the same man she's been in love with for 3 years.
As the oldest Bad, Mick has been the backbone of his family for more than half his life, and because of those early years when his family fell apart, Mick doesn't feel like he's able to commit to a relationship, given the way his parents marriage fell apart. A chance encounter during a masquerade bar crawl ends up forever changing his view on relationships and marriage.
I thought this was a sweet love story, in which both Amanda and Mick are in love with each other, but neither one ever dared cross that line for fear of the repercussions. Amanda is the kind of clueless sexy: she doesn't even realize how sexy her innocence is. And her innocence seems to bring out the feelings and emotions that Mick has suppressed since the death of his younger sister many years earlier. All it takes is one weekend with Amanda for Mick to see that he really does deserve a chance at being happy in a relationship.

LURED BY THE pulse of sex and anonymity, Amanda Jenner moved through the dusky bar, brushing against silk, satin, cotton, and flesh, each graze feeding the adrenaline coursing through her veins. Blue lights misted over sweaty strangers lost in the seductive bump and grind of foreplay and hoping for a night of erotic pleasure. If Amanda tried hard enough, she could smell tomorrow’s scent du jour—regret. Tonight she had no room for the confidence-crushing worry of what tomorrow would bring. She scanned the crowd, as she had in the previous three bars, immediately dismissing anyone who wasn’t in costume. Her world was full of boring men who excelled at wining, dining, and boring her to sleep. Ten years of romance novels and movies had led her astray, looking for the elusive needle in a haystack. She’d led herself astray, always the careful thinker, careful dresser. Or as her younger sister, Ally, would say, Careful kisser, careful lover. Ally, however, had taken charge of her sex life—and she’d found the perfect man.Now it’s my turn.
