Bad Boys of Romance Blog Hop (International)

herding cats & burning soup

Jamie: Oh, bad boys! Who doesn't love a bad boy? They are all dark and dangerous. And they usually always have a bad ass job. Plus they are all alpha and sexy, in and out of the bedroom. Yep, I am definitely a fan of the bad boy. The badder the better.

Kati: Bad 'em or hate 'em, deep down inside, we all WANT them. Whether it's their alphaness or the way they take care of their women in and out of the bedroom, they make us swoon. The more fucked up, the better. At least for us here at Romancing Rakes For The Love of Romance.

It starts off like this...

And he's all like...

And we're all like...

Then he's all...
...with some other dude because of the heroine. Again, sometimes.

And he does this...


...and over...

...and over again.

Then she's all (in her mind, sometimes)...

And then he's all broody and leaving...

Then comes to his senses...

And they lived, happily ever after...

And now on to our two favorite bad boys :)

A fallen boxer.

A woman with a broken dream.

A competition…


He even makes me forget my name. One night was all it took, and I forgot everything and anything except the sexy fighter in the ring who sets my mind ablaze and my body on fire with wanting…

Remington Tate is the strongest, most confusing man I’ve ever met in my life.

He’s the star of the dangerous underground fighting circuit, and I’m drawn to him as I’ve never been drawn to anything in my life. I forget who I am, what I want, with just one look from him. When he’s near, I need to remind myself that I am strong–but he is stronger. And now it’s my job to keep his body working like a perfect machine, his taut muscles primed and ready to break the bones of his next opponents . . .

But the one he’s most threatening to, now, is me.

I want him. I want him without fear. Without reservations.

If only I knew for sure what it is that he wants from me?

24-year old Pax Tate is an asshole.


He’s a tattooed, rock-hard bad-boy with a bad attitude to match.

But he’s got his reasons.

His mother died when Pax was seven, leaving a hole in his heart filled with guilt although he doesn’t understand why. What he does know is that he and his dad are left alone and with more issues than they can count.

As Pax grew up, he tried to be the kid his father always wanted; the perfect golden boy, but it didn’t work. His dad couldn’t overcome his grief long enough to notice and Pax couldn’t keep up the impossible perfect fa├žade.

So he slipped far, far from it.

Now, he uses drugs and women to cope with the ugliness, the black void that he doesn’t want to deal with. If he pretends that the emptiness isn’t there, then it isn’t, right?


And it’s never more apparent than when he meets Mila.

Sweet, beautiful Mila Hill is the fresh air to his hardened frown, the beauty to his ugly heart. He doesn’t know how to not hurt her, but he quickly realizes that he’s got to figure it out because he needs her to breathe.

When memories of his mother’s death resurface from where he’s repressed them for so long, Mila is there to catch him when the guilt starts making sense. Mila is the one…the one who can save him from his broken troubled heart; from his issues, from the emptiness.

But only if he can stop being an asshole long enough to allow it.

He knows that. And he’s working on it.

But is that enough to make her stay?
