Overview

To remake their future, they’ll have to use pieces of their broken past.

Bad in Baltimore, Book 4

The young man the world knew as Jordan Barnett is dead, killed as much by the rejection of his first love at his moment of greatest need, as by his ultra-conservative parents’ effort to deprogram the gay away.

In his place is Silver, a streetwise survivor who’s spent the last three years learning to become untouchable…unless you’re willing to pay for the privilege. He shies away from anything that might hold him down long enough for betrayal to find him again.

Zebediah Harris spent time overseas, trying to outrun the guilt of turning his back on the young man he loved. Now, almost the moment he sets foot back in Baltimore, he discovers Silver on a street corner in a bad part of town. His effort to make amends lands them both in jail.

Trapped together in a cell, Silver sits on his mountain of secrets and plans a seductive form of revenge, but finds that using a heart as a stepping stone is no way to move past the one man he can’t forgive, let alone forget.

Warning: Contains a surly hero. May cause angst. A prolonged delay in sexual situations may cause frustration. Author recommends a steady dose of familiar friends and characters to alleviate those symptoms. No actual teenagers were used during the construction of the backstory.

The 4th book in the series had the hardest story line to read about and a wonderful message (actually several of them) that it's never too late to make changes, HIV is manageable and you can live a full life and forgiveness can be a wonderful gift. All given to the reader in the package of 2 interesting MC's amongst the cast of all the MC's from the previous books. It's great how the author brings them all together.

I was excited to read the next book of K.A but it didn't read right. The past books read like you were in the moment, couldn't wait for the next sentence, edge of your seat story. This story read...ok. worth the money, but not the quality of past writes. I only had to start reading Bad Additude again to remind myself of what this author is capable of. TM

2.5 Stars ~Reviewed by ANN & posted at Under the Covers Book Blog I’ve been a big fan of K.A. Mitchell for awhile so I was excited for the fourth book in the Bad in Baltimore series called BAD INFLUENCE. However, upon starting, I felt something different about this book. At first, I wondered if it was because I wasn’t in a good reading mojo. The week had been a brutal one and had sapped a lot of my emotions out already, but for some reason, I still couldn’t find myself connecting to a lot of the characters in this book. Jordan Barnett told his parents he was gay. Instead of accepting it, his parents threw him out and put him in a conversion camp where they hoped they could remove him of his sins. Jordan then went to see someone he trusted to help him out of the situation, but was turned down. Despite his broken heart, Jordan didn’t give up but transformed into Silver, a street-savvy man who became a prostitute. I really liked Silver. I thought he was the one character in this book that had different dimensions, wasn’t overly annoying and had a strong presence. However, the rest of the characters seemed to annoy me most of the time as I read. Mitchell places a lot of emphasis on past characters in the series. While I think it’s nice to have the tie in, it also creates for a lot of drama, especially when you include individual as well as couple issues. The story becomes too convoluted with everything that is going on. Because of that, I also feel that Zeb’s character wasn’t really formed fully. He didn’t stand out very much and I still don’t know why. I just never really connected with him at all and found his character to be forgettable. As a result, it made it hard for me to believe in the romance. So while BAD INFLUENCE didn’t resonate with me as much as I had hoped it would, it’s still a great read if you enjoy angst in your books. *ARC provided by publisher
