The Duke’s Guide to Correct Behavior by Megan Frampton $1.99!!
The Duke's Guide to Correct Behavior - Megan Frampton

ll of London knows the Duke of Rutherford has position and wealth. They also whisper that he’s dissolute, devilish, and determinedly unwed. So why, everyone is asking, has he hired a governess?

 

When Miss Lily Russell crosses the threshold of the Duke of Rutherford’s stylish townhouse, she knows she has come face to face with sensual danger. For this is no doting papa. Rather, his behavior is scandalous, and his reputation rightly earned. And his pursuit of her is nearly irresistible—but resist she must for the sake of her pupil.

 

As for the duke himself, it was bad enough when his unknown child landed on his doorstep. Now Lily, with her unassuming beauty, has aroused his most wicked fantasies—and, shockingly, his desire to change his wanton ways. He’s determined to become worthy of her, and so he asks for her help in correcting his behavior. 

 

But Lily has a secret, one that, if it becomes known, could change everything…

Release Day ARC Review: Bad Behavior by K.A. Mitchell
Bad Behavior - K.A. Mitchell

This book starts off with a bang - literally - as Beach, irresponsible, immature, and full of IDGAF, meets a hot guy at a bar (where he's not really supposed to be, what with the ankle bracelet and alcohol monitor, courtesy of his dumbassery) and ends up pushed against the bathroom stall for a pounding.

I snickered a whole lot when hot guy turns out to be his probation officer. Oopsie.

Tai, a Dominant without a sub, dumps Beach off on his co-worker real fast, and tells the other man that there still can't be anything further happening between them, except Beach is used to getting his will, and Tai notices how Beach reacts to when he's given a direct command. 

Isn't that interesting, Tai thinks to himself and continues to test that theory.

I didn't like Beach in Gavin's book, because he was a spoiled brat, but I sure as heck like David Beauchamp, once the author peels back the layers that poor boy has wrapped himself in and explores his full backstory. No wonder that man is so fucked up in the head. 

The D/s aspects of their relationship completely made this novel for me. This wasn't playful kink like we saw in Bad Boyfriend, this was full-time DD/Ds, and I watched David grow into himself as he gives himself over to Tai's direction and discipline. 

Until he fucks up, and badly, and it all comes to a crashing halt. 

Because despite his growth, David still doesn't know his own worth, doesn't realize that he's worthy of being loved, doesn't understand that his fear of abandonment directs his steps until it's almost too late, because when he has to make a choice, he falters for a bit. 

Tai too has to learn here - though not quite as much as David - and he too makes some serious missteps.

I loved what the author did with Beach's character. She not only gave him room to grow (up) but also let him find that inner strength that was there all along, hidden below the layers, hidden behind that mask, hidden so deeply that David almost didn't know it was there. But it is, and I think of all the characters in this series, David grows the most. This one ranks high as one of my two favorites in this series.

As for the supporting characters, Jamie was a massive prick in this book. While I could understand the animosity due to the history there, he didn't have to be such an asshole to David. I also thought that Gavin was portrayed here as a bit more shallow than he was in his own book - again, perhaps of the history there, and how Beach almost cost him Jamie. Eventually Gavin does see the light though, and I appreciated that. 

I think this might be the end of this series, and I'm a little sad about that, but there's always the option to re-read them all. 

As for this one - loved it.

it's finally going to happen!!! They're getting married!!!
Romantic Behavior (Bad Behavior Book 4) - Cari Z.,L.A. Witt

Darren and Andreas have been through a lot in this series and here in book 4 we finally get to see them get their HEA!!! But it's not going to come without it's challenges.

 

This fourth book is definitely done with a more tongue-in-cheek, humorous tone and I really enjoyed it because as we all know there's not a whole lot more that's more stressful than a wedding...bit or small it's fraught with social Faux Pas and general potential disaster. Trust me I know I've done the wedding thing twice one was the big fancy tuxedo, white gown event and the second one was the small intimate friends and family event...no seriously it was small less than 75 people and I come from a big family so we thought that was pretty damned good. 

 

Anyways, back to Darren and Andreas's wedding. What should have been a small intimate wedding quickly becomes a bit of a 3 ring circus and  as things steam roller out of control Darren and Andreas have to ask themselves who this wedding is for? Them or their families?

 

I really enjoyed this one. Having done the wedding thing there was so much that I was able to relate to and found myself laughing out loud more than once. As Darren and Andreas try to maneuver their families and figure out how to get the wedding that they had envisioned without offending their friends and family, they soon come to realize that you just can't please everyone and they finally take matters into their own hands determined to have the wedding day that will see them 'happily' married.

 

I'm guessing that this is the end of the line for this series and while I would have enjoyed a little bit more of the 'wedded bliss' I still really enjoyed the story and the fact that there wasn't any over the top mysteries to be solved it was just all about the wedding day. 

 

Last of all a thank you to my sweet cyber child Josy, who gifted a pre-order of this book to me for Christmas  because she knew how much I was loving this series and wanted to be sure I could enjoy the ending.

Romantic Behavior (Bad Behavior Book 4)
Romantic Behavior (Bad Behavior Book 4) - Cari Z.,L.A. Witt Nice wrap up to the series. No mystery or suspense here other than the whole "why do smart adults try to please everyone else but themselves when planning their wedding." I have limited tolerance in real-life for people who allow others to dictate what they need to do for their wedding so I'm not always a big fan of it in fiction and did find myself yelling at my kindle because of it.

I did love seeing Darren take care of some nasty business as far as Andreas' family goes. Good to see them get their HEA.
