Library JournalWhen Gavin Montgomery fell off a bridge trying to save an inebriated friend from killing himself, he thought his life was over until police rescue diver Jamie Donnigan saved Gavin and his friend. As Gavin is a trust fund baby and the publicly gay son of a prominent family, his brush with death captures media attention and is seen as a suicide attempt. Trying to change the public perception of his son, Gavin’s father hosts an elaborate party to celebrate Gavin’s heroism in helping his friend, and Jamie is invited to receive public recognition of his bravery. Jamie resents Gavin’s seemingly easy life and lack of responsibility but is attracted to him physically and is willing to use him to alleviate his lack of a regular lover. Gavin starts out attracted to his rescuer as his hero, but the more he learns about Jamie, the more in love he falls.
Verdict Gavin and Jamie are mismatched at the start, as most romances seem to begin. They connect only sexually, until the final chapters, but then their professions of love fall into more of a happy for now rather than a happy ever after. Fans of Mitchell’s Bad Company (2011) and Bad Boyfriend (2011) will enjoy catching up with Nate, Kellan, Quinn, and Eli, but libraries not owning the first two books may want to pass on Attitude since the titles should be read in series order.—Melanie C.
