Bad Boys After Dark: Mick by Melissa Foster Review

Indulge your inner vixen…

Meet the Bad Boys… Four sinfully sexy, fiercely loyal, uber alpha brothers about to fall head over heels for their leading ladies. If dirty talk, cursing, or raw, passionate sex turns you off, the After Dark books are not for you, because everything’s naughtier after dark.


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.

I love this new Bad Boys After Dark series by Melissa Foster and was extremely excited that she released Mick! But I honestly didn't expect it to literally become my favorite book of the series.

Amanda Jenner is tired of feeling like she is the magnet for every boring man out there; As a Paralegal, she has her read screwed on right! But she is tired of being the responsible one! So she after a little research (she is a paralegal after all), she picks a book called The Handbook: Release Your Inner Temptress; and after mentally practicing it on her boss, Mick Bad (the man she has had a secret crush on for years), she takes the biggest step of all and hits a bar with a costume night; to find a real man she can practice on. And when she does hook the man she has been eyeing all night, she has a feeling that he is going to give her more than she expects…

Mike Bad is the ultimate one night stand player, after watching his father destroy his family, he vowed never to have a relationship or have kids, no! casual hook ups, no stings, no expectations were the way for him, which he was in that bathroom of a seedy bar, with a masked women who seems to want him as much as he wants her…that is until he notices something about this women…something that he as seen before on the one person he had to fight himself to stay away from…Amanda.

Realizing that it is Amanda he calls a stop to their passionate moment, he knows he can't leave it at that, so he arranged to meet again the next night. But when he reveals that he is her masked man from the night before, Amanda is shocked (and a little embarrassed), but they agree on one night together and then they would forget that it ever happened…but would one night ever be enough?!

This book has it all! Hot sex, a emotionally scared man and a overly responsible women! Seriously though, the characters are amazing and you honestly cant help but fall in love with both Amanda and Mick, I completely related to Amanda's feelings of always being the responsible person and just wanting to break out and be a little reckless, just to have that bit of joy that is always just a little bit out of her reach. Where it comes to Mick; you cannot honestly feel compassion for him and his brothers, having their family destroyed by their father! But you can applaud him for fighting to be a better man that his father.

The plot of this book is divine! Seriously, its like a hot and sexy office romance, but brought up to 2016 standards! This ain't your momma's romances folks! This is about a women not willing to sit around and waiting for someone to come along and find her! This is about a women going out and seeking what she need and I applaud the author into updating this age old story line, but is her own way and in the unique writing style that is Melissa Foster.

I give Bad Boys After Dark: Mick 5 smoking hot stars!

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, sending her on a search 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.
