Detective Andreas Ruffner is no fool--he's found a man who loves him, puts up with him, and has stuck with him through hell and back, and it's time to put a ring on it. Darren Corliss is the love of his life, and he wants the whole world to know it.
Now the fun part--the wedding!
Well, after the not-so-fun part of planning the wedding in between dealing with overbearing and impossible-to-please family members. With future mothers-in-law driving them both up a wall, the guest list growing out of control, and the wedding getting ever more complicated, Darren and Andreas have to wonder if they're in over their heads.
But they're going to make it to the altar if it kills them . . . and at this rate, it just might.

Explosive and tender at the same time. Had me mad and happy, laughing and crying, and calm and excited all at the same time.
4.5 stars- 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. Romantic Behavior had a bit of a different feel with a more relaxed pacing than the full-length novels in the series. As much as I enjoyed the excitement as Andreas and Darren worked through their cases, it was equally great to get more insight into their lives away from the precinct. Readers finally had the chance to see them as a couple first and foremost, rather than as partners turned lovers and, for me, it cemented just how strong a relationship they had built over the series. Once again, I was struck by how much of an emotional connection Andreas and Darren have and how well the authors weave those moments into the narrative. For those that have been waiting for that emotional chemistry to translate to physical- you certainly won’t be disappointed. While there was definitely a quieter feel to this story, I was pleased there was still a balanced rhythm to the writing with plenty of the fun banter I’ve come to expect from these characters. No doubt I’ll miss these guys, but this was the happily-ever-after Darren and Andreas deserved and I was hoping for (and those vows *sigh*). Romantic Behavior proved to be a great wrap-up to a fantastic series I highly recommend for anyone who likes romantic suspense or law-enforcement romances. *Reviewed for Alpha Book Club*
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 mother-in-laws, wedding planners, guest lists, flowers, romance, and heartfelt vows. Romantic Behavior is the fourth and final novel in the Bad Behavior series that has a lovely, happy-ever-after ending that sees these two partners in crime finally becoming partners for life.
