I might have gotten myself into a wee bit of trouble—and I’m not talking about the “court mandated community service,” or “therapy sessions from bashing a bloke in the head” kind of trouble.
I wish it were that simple.
Nope. I’m talking about the “falling in love with one of my client’s daughters,” kind of trouble . . .
The kind of problem I can’t talk my way out of when the truth gets out.
How I ended up with her phone is a long story—and when she called to get it back, I took things a bit too far. One innocent exchange wound up leading to so much more.
Fun, new, and totally immune to my charm, Sutton is different. And I had no idea she was the daughter of Foster Green.
Blame it on the dark colored stout running through my veins, pushing me toward one bad decision after another. Pushing me toward her even though I know right from wrong; even though she’s my client’s daughter.
Dating her might be the best or worst decision I’ve ever made. Only time, whiskey, and one more roll around the mattress with her will tell.
Diary of a Bad Boy is one of those books I loved from the moment I started it. That’s something I have come to expect from Meghan Quinn. She writes the best romantic comedies, and Diary of a Bad Boy is one of them.
What did I love about this book? The writing. Diary of a Bad Boy was infused with humor. I loved the banter between Roark and Sutton. It was just so much fun. I loved that it was written in dual points of view, so I got both Roark and Sutton’s thoughts. There was also a fun bad boy diary by Roark. I loved reading his attempt at therapy through the diary. My favorite thing, though, were the text messages between Roark and Sutton. They were so perfect.
Roark and Sutton were an incredibly fun match. Roark was older, more experienced, and more jaded than Sutton. He liked to smoke, drink, and fight. Roark was a bad boy to the bone. He needed someone as young, somewhat naive, and full of sunshine as Sutton. Their interactions were so entertaining. I loved how they started off as enemies and then slowly grew on each other.
Roark and Sutton had some meaningful relationships that I adored. Roark had his friendships with Bram and Rath that we first saw in The Secret to Dating Your Best Friend’s Sister. I really enjoyed seeing more of these guys supporting each other. Sutton had a crazy best friend. My favorite side character was actually Sutton’s dad, Foster. I loved her relationship with him. I also loved Roark’s relationship with him.
Yeah. Diary of a Bad Boy was a great read. I loved every moment I spent with it. It’s made me super excited to read Rath’s book. There’s a story there that I cannot wait to find out about!
