Overview

When did save a life become change a life?

Bad in Baltimore, Book 3

As the openly gay middle son of the most powerful family between Manhattan and Miami, Gavin Montgomery knows his role—look good in a tuxedo and don’t make waves.

Waves are the least of his worries when he tries and fails to keep a friend from jumping off a high bridge. His last thought as he falls in too is that someone else will have to take over as family disappointment…until he’s pulled from the water by a man with an iron grip, a sexy mouth and a chip on his shoulder the size of the national deficit.

Police rescue diver Jamie Donnigan finally has life the way he wants it. Okay, he could have done without losing his father, quitting smoking and watching his friends drift into couplehood. At least he’s managed to escape that particular trap.

When Gavin’s father turns Jamie’s routine rescue into a media circus, he figures if he’s going to suffer for his good deed, he might as well enjoy a roll in the sack. But Jamie’s not immune to Gavin’s cultivated charm…and all the risks that come along with giving in to it.

Warning: Includes above the recommended daily allowance for snark, attitude, stubbornness and a variety of scorching hot sex (even for this author).

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
When 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.

    I never thought I would write this, but please, Ms. Mitchell, may we have a little less sex and some more story, particularly the ending? I pre-ordered, suffered through people posting reviews TWO MONTHS in advance of the release date, so maybe I was anticipating too much.

    Good Read

    If your looking for a sweet romance don't look here. This is about two people who really like each other and don't know how to handle the situation. The only way they know to comunicate is sex. Lots of sex. Nice change of pace. Good book

    Okay

    I loved the first two books in this series, but this one didn't do much for me. The love, passion, chemistry just wasn't there. It seemed like these two didn't even like each other for as much as they argued and were rude to each other. Wasn't a total loss though.

    Ending? Who needs one?

    Substance and an ending would have been nice. As well as resolution to their problems, or at the very least some development of the characters through the plot. They seem static.

    THREESOME. That’s all I need to say and I can guarantee that you’ll purchase this book now, am I right?

    Now THAT’S how you pimp! *drops mic and walks away* ~ Under the Covers

    Ohhh boy! K.A. Mitchell fans! You are in for a treat! BAD ATTITUDE is red HOT HOT HOT!! In the third book in the Bad in Baltimore series by K.A. Mitchell, readers get to know Jamie Donnigan a little more. Jamie is a police rescue diver and has a little bit of an attitude, hence the title but when he saves the life of a – excuse me, THE hottest and richest openly gay son of a powerful family in Manhatten and Miami named Gavin Montgomery, he finds himself questioning things that seemed so clear to him before.

    After a crazy night, Gavin and his buddy Beach have things get out of hand which leads Gavin rushing to stop his friend from jumping off a bridge. He fails and falls right over with him. After a rescue and recovery, Gavin’s father wishes to thank Jamie and it becomes a big media fiasco. There, Jamie sees how the other half lives, but he doesn’t like Gavin because of his money. Jamie soon realizes that there’s space of a significant other in his life but that that mean Gavin is the one?

    K.A. Mitchell is one of my favorite M/M romance authors mostly because there isn’t too much angst. I like a break from it once and awhile and to just have a book that blends humor, great characters, exceptional writing and smokin’ hot sex all together. BAD ATTITUDE definitely has all these things and more!

    Mitchell has always written quite steamy scenes, but there’s one scene that definitely scorched my eyebrows off as I was reading! Unexpected but totally believable was a hot and steamy threesome. Yup, you read that right! THREESOME. That’s all I need to say and I can guarantee that you’ll purchase this book now, am I right?

    Now THAT’S how you pimp! *drops mic and walks away*

    But in all seriousness, I loved the way Mitchell developed the relationship between Gavin and Jamie. Jamie is a tough one to crack, but Gavin never once gave up on him. The romance bloomed beautifully without it feeling too rushed or fake. By the end of the book, I was completely satisfied but it can’t hurt to have more, right?

    Great read

    Rich boy and the working cop - 2 typical characters but the author makes them unique and very entertaining to read about. Especially since the MC's from the first two books are throughout this one.
