✯RELEASE WEEK BLITZ✯ Bad Boys After Dark: Mick by Melissa Foster {EXCERPT + REVIEW + GIVEAWAY!}

Bad Boys After Dark: Mick by Melissa Foster

Release Date: June 22nd 2016 by Smashwords Edition
Series: Bad Boys After Dark #1
Genres: Adult, Romance


Amanda Jenner is done being a boring-man magnet and has finally taken control of her love life. As any smart paralegal would, she's researched the hell out of how to seduce a man. She's waxed, primped, and ready to put her newfound skills into action--and a masquerade bar crawl is the perfect venue for her solo coming-out party.

Entertainment attorney Mick Bad lives by two hard and fast rules. He never mixes business with pleasure, and he doesn't do relationships, which makes the anonymity of a masquerade bar crawl the perfect place for a onetime hookup.

Amanda thinks she's hit the jackpot when she bags a tall, dark, and sinfully delicious masked man--until she discovers the man she's made out with is her off-limits boss. Mick's already crossed a line he can never uncross, and one taste of sweet and sexy Amanda has only whet his appetite. When Mick offers to give Amanda a lesson in seduction--no strings, no regrets, and for goodness' sake, come Monday, no quitting--the tables turn, and Mick's totally unprepared for the lessons this sweet temptress provides.

My Review:

It's been a while since I've read any books by Melissa Foster that when I read the synopsis of this book, I knew I had to read it right away. In her latest novel, Foster delivers a story filled with swoon worthy moments as well as characters that will leave you wanting for more. 

The story starts off with Amanda Jenner, a successful paralegal that hasn't had any luck attracting the right type of guys. She doesn't know how to seduce the right men, and that ultimately leads her to researching her way to seduction by reading a book her best friend gave her. One night Amanda decided to take her research into practice and gave herself a new look, one that no one would recognize her. Yet, when she goes out for the night at a masquerade event, she ends up meeting a sexy stranger who makes her feeling wanted and that is when she decides to practice what she had learned from the book. But soon things start to get steamy, and when they decide to meet again the next day without knowing each other's names, Amanda meets the stranger only find out that it's her boss, Mick Bad who she had kissed the previous night. Not wanting to risk her job, she is determined to keep herself away from her boss, and forget the night that they both had, but he makes her an offer that she can't ignore. Now Amanda has to decide whether spending the weekend with Mick, while learning the act of seduction is the right thing to do or if she is going to be at risk of losing her job and her heart. 

Entertainment attorney Mick Bad has it all, he has money and plenty of women at his disposal. Yet having everything doesn't mean that he wants a long term relationship with anyone, and to his benefit the masquerade bar crawl is the perfect place for him to be with any women of his choosing without having to get attacked to someone. Though he never expected to find his paralegal at the bar while wearing a wig and a sexy little number that could leave any men wanting for more. Now Nick can't get enough of her, and will give her lessons in seduction, no string attacked. But when the weekend is over, they will go back to their normal routine and never speak of their weekend together again. Needless to say, Nick was surprised to find himself getting more attacked to Amanda that he had originally imagined. Now it's time for the both to decide whether a relationship together is worth fighting for or not. 

I really enjoyed reading Mick and Amanda's story, the characters have personalities that are hard to ignore. While Amanda might be a bit shy and apprehensive, Mick knows what he wants and gets it no matter the cost. It's evident from the very beginning that both of the characters have a thing for one another, but neither of them is willing to admit it first. When Mick offers to give Amanda lessons in seduction the story takes a whole new turn and we are left with swoon worthy moments that had me reading non-stop. Although the characters' biggest issue was trying to hide their growing feelings for each other, there were also other aspects of the characters that we get to learned in the story, a more personal side or background story of the characters that helped the book a lot. The pace of the story is steady, but there were a couple of times that I wished the author would elaborate on a scene, but other than that I liked the story. If you're looking for a story filled with romantic scenes and humor than I would highly recommend reading this book. I will definitely be reading the rest of the series for sure. :)

My Rating: 


LURED BY THE pulse of sex and anonymity, Amanda Jenner moved through the dusky bar, brushing against silk, satin, cotton, and flesh, each graze feeding the adrenaline coursing through her veins. Blue lights misted over sweaty strangers lost in the seductive bump and grind of foreplay and hoping for a night of erotic pleasure. If Amanda tried hard enough, she could smell tomorrow’s scent du jour—regret. Tonight she had no room for the confidence-crushing worry of what tomorrow would bring. She scanned the crowd, as she had in the previous three bars, immediately dismissing anyone who wasn’t in costume. Her world was full of boring men who excelled at wining, dining, and boring her to sleep. Ten years of romance novels and movies had led her astray, looking for the elusive needle in a haystack. She’d led herself astray, always the careful thinker, careful dresser. Or as her younger sister, Ally, would say, Careful kisser, careful lover. Ally, however, had taken charge of her sex life—and she’d found the perfect man.

Now it’s my turn.
