When did save a life become change a life?

Bad in Baltimore, Book 3

As the openly gay middle son of the most powerful family between Manhattan and Miami, Gavin Montgomery knows his role—look good in a tuxedo and don’t make waves.

Waves are the least of his worries when he tries and fails to keep a friend from jumping off a high bridge. His last thought as he falls in too is that someone else will have to take over as family disappointment…until he’s pulled from the water by a man with an iron grip, a sexy mouth and a chip on his shoulder the size of the national deficit.

Police rescue diver Jamie Donnigan finally has life the way he wants it. Okay, he could have done without losing his father, quitting smoking and watching his friends drift into couplehood. At least he’s managed to escape that particular trap.

When Gavin’s father turns Jamie’s routine rescue into a media circus, he figures if he’s going to suffer for his good deed, he might as well enjoy a roll in the sack. But Jamie’s not immune to Gavin’s cultivated charm…and all the risks that come along with giving in to it.

This story starts off fast and I jumped into it, totally along for the ride. Gavin and Jamie meet outside of the rescue and they seem to hate each other but still have this huge attraction to each other.

This is the first M/M story I’ve ever read where the two characters hated each other in the beginning. They’re both openly gay so it’s not a matter of one of them being in the closet, it’s more they both don’t want to love anyone. They just want sex, and Jamie isn’t so sure that the spoiled rich boy Gavin Montgomery is the right person to have a fling with.

Jamie was a complex character that I could see being misunderstood as a rude abrasive character but I actually understood him and liked him. Gavin is also pretty complex too, he shows this playboy attitude to the world, but really all he wants is to be loved.

I haven’t read any other stories in this series, but I greatly enjoyed this one. The sex is hot and abundant since they do start off with a sexual relationship only. Little by little they fall in love and I enjoyed the journey. I recommend this story for the complex relationship and a love story that isn’t just an insta love but instead about two people learning to fit their life and expectations together.
