In a life full of yes, no is the sexiest word he’s ever heard.

David Beauchamp might as well be in jail. After one too many misunderstandings with the law, he’s chained to the city by the GPS and alcohol sensor strapped to his ankle. Awaiting trial, cut off from usual forms of entertainment, he goes looking for a nameless sexual encounter and winds up with almost more than he can handle.

Reality comes crashing back the next day with a summons for another random drug test, and the man behind the badge turns out to be the very man who took him for one hell of a ride.

Probation Officer Tai Fonoti is used to handling other people’s problems, but he’s horrified when one of the clients his boss dumps on him is the sweet piece of ass he screwed the night before. It makes getting a urine sample a pretty loaded situation.

That single encounter left Beach craving Tai’s unique brand of control and discipline. But while Tai relishes laying down the law in the bedroom, the letter of the law stands between them and kinkily ever after.

Warning: This book is kinky. I mean kinky. With lots of sex. It describes a fully consensual, intense D/s relationship which changes a character’s life. It includes impact play and bondage along the way to a very happily ever after.

This was a good read. If I had to describe this book I would say this is a book about a man looking for something he needs but has no clue he needs it.

Beach is one of those men that does things before he thinks. Most of the time it gets him into some kind of trouble. Point being he is on basically house arrest for the most part. He has a curfew and a monitor on his leg that tells where he has been and pretty much what he is doing.

So when he goes to a bar to hook up with someone, you can bet his probation officer will find out. But Beach thinks since he is not drinking that it is OK to go anyway. That is where he encounters a man that knows what he wants and how he wants it.

This is not Beach’s way to handle a hook up. He normally does not go for a dominant man but there is just something about this man that just calls to Beach. After their encounter they both believe it will be the last time they see one another. But what neither man knows is it turns out Beach will be seeing him again and very soon in fact.

When Tai went out and hooked up with a stranger, he never expected to see him in his office again the next day. Turns out Beach is one of his new probies. This is a definite problem. And even worse is Tai still wants Beach.

Tai’s a dominant man looking for a submissive. Beach has never thought of himself as submissive but can’t seem to get Tai out of his mind or the things that he was able to do to him.

Can two men that have different backgrounds and are so different from the other find a way to make things work between them?

This was a great read. I am so glad that Beach got his own book. If anyone needed someone to help rein him in, it as definitely Beach. He is out of control and Tai has what Beach needs to help him become more stable. I look forward to more books by K.A. Mitchell in the future.

Advanced Review Copy

Galley copy of Bad Behavior (Bad In Baltimore #5) provided by the author in exchange of an honest review.


Hello, I am an avid reader of male/male books. I do not have a favorite genre when it comes to male/male books because I love all of them from romance, dark reads, paranormal, shifter, threesome, whatever I see that catches my eye at the time. I read books about rock stars, CEOs, military, cops, and just the original plain old good boy types of books. Basically when it comes to a book, I read whatever I am in the mood for at the time. So my tastes varies from day to day and sometimes even hour to hour.
