Bad in Baltimore: Book Three
Saving lives never used to be this complicated.
Gavin Montgomery does what’s expected of him by his wealthy and powerful family—look good in a tuxedo and don’t make waves. When a friend takes a leap off a bridge, Gavin tries to save him, only to fall in with him. At least at the bottom of the river he won’t feel like such a disappointment to his family. But 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.
Jamie Donnigan likes his life the way it is—though he could have done without losing his father and giving up smoking. But at least he’s managed to avoid his own ball and chain as he’s watched all his friends pair off. When Montgomery fame turns a simple rescue into a media circus, Jamie decides if he’s being punished for his good deed, he might as well treat himself to a hot and sweaty good time. It’s not like the elegant and charming Gavin is going to lure Jamie away from his bachelor lifestyle. Nobody’s that charming. Not even a Montgomery…
Second Edition, First Edition published by Samhain Publishers Inc., April 2013.
The name of this book could not be more perfect if KA Mitchell tried. Both of the main characters have a bad attitude when it comes to commitment and communication. Neither of them seem to really have the ability to open up.
Jamie is an officer for the water rescue squad. He is used to having to rescue people who either make a stupid decision or make a decision and then second guess it. That is exactly what led him to meet Gavin.
Gavin is the son of one of the richest families in their town. When a night of partying with his friend Beach lands both him and Beach flying off a bridge into the water below, there is no chance the two will survive unless there is a rescue.
That is where Jamie comes in. He had the instinct that Gavin is not in the search zone that they are searching and that is when he goes out of the rescue area and finds the people they are looking for.
Once the rescue is complete, Gavin’s family wants to honor both Jamie and Gavin for their heroism. This makes it possible for these two men to get to know each other a little better and realize that there is an attraction between the two of them. But the problem lies in both come from different worlds and both have the hit it and quit it mantra.
Though they both try to stay away from the other, neither can seem to do so. Both men have their own issues that keep them from opening up to the other. Jamie is the one that at least tries to let Gavin in whereas Gavin continues to pull away each time they seem to make progress.
Can two men that have no communication skills and commitment issues find a way to make a true run at a relationship together?
This was a good read. I enjoyed this read. I have not read any books in this series before but I will definitely be looking to read the other books as they come out. Definitely a book worth reading.
