Diary of a Bad Boy
From USA Today bestselling author Meghan Quinn comes a forbidden romance about an Irish rebel who falls in love with the wrong girl.Dear Diary, I might have gotten myself into a wee bit of trouble—and I'm not talking about the "court mandated community service," or “therapy sessions from bashing a bloke in the head" kind of trouble. I wish it were that simple. Nope. I’m talking about the "falling in love with one of my client's daughters,” kind of trouble . . . The kind of problem I can’t talk my way out of when the truth gets out.How I ended up with her phone is a long story—and when she called to get it back, I took things a bit too far. One innocent exchange wound up leading to so much more.Fun, new, and totally immune to my charm, Sutton is different. And I had no idea she was the daughter of Foster Green. Blame it on the dark colored stout running through my veins, pushing me toward one bad decision after another. Pushing me toward her even though I know right from wrong; even though she's my client's daughter. Dating her might be the best or worst decision I've ever made. Only time, whiskey, and one more roll around the mattress with her will tell. Roark

All I know is this feeling I have for you, this mind-numbing, soul-shattering feeling coursing through my body, isn’t going away, so I can either continue to try to fight it, or I can ask you for help.” Meghan Quinn is one of my most favorite romantic comedy writers and she has far exceeded my expectations with ”DIARY OF A BAD BOY”. Everything about this story was pure magic! The story reels you in from the start and never lets go. The author’s signature snarky sense of humor is infused throughout and made for some belly aching laugh out loud moments. The plot was highly entertaining and I fell in love with both the Hero and Heroine. A total win!!Roark McCool is a sexy hot-headed and foul-mouthed Irishman, with a penchant for liquor, fast women, and getting into fistfights. Sutton Green is a sweet and innocent Southern belle who can also give as good as she gets. The two first meet at a Gray’s Papaya where Roark gets into a brawl with a guy and nearly takes out Sutton in the process. Through the commotion, they wind up with each other’s cell phones and then the comical banter ensues. Roark goes out of his way to be a jerk and holds Sutton’s phone hostage while she desperately tries to meet up with him to get it back. This is ”enemies-to-lovers” romance at its best!Things get complicated when they find out that Sutton’s dad is an NFL quarterback who also happens to be one of Roark’s top clients. Roark and Sutton thought their time in each other’s presence would end once their cell phones were exchanged but they’re both forced to work together on a philanthropic project that Sutton’s father holds near and dear to his heart.Get ready for some serious sparks and painful sexual tension to form between the couple. I loved the quick-witted banter that flows fast and furious between Roark and Sutton, and their chemistry is scorching hot!! I wasn’t prepared to fall so hard for Roark as he didn’t really leave much of an impression on me in the first book, but that’s how I felt about Racer from ”Twisted Twosome”. That’s just how this author likes to throw you off and I love that about her writing.Here are my overall ratings:Hero: 5Heroine: 5Plot: 5Angst: 5Steam: 5Chemistry Between Hero & Heroine: 5DIARY OF A BAD BOY releases on March 7th! This is a book you’re going to want to get your hands on asap! Get ready to add another book boyfriend to your favorites shelves!UNIVERSAL LINK: https://amzn.to/2UoDEJx

The beginning was quite funny and I was intrigued. But then the H’s behavior became so irritating I decided to end this.The H is a sports agent. That’s the ONLY nice thing about him. It was very VERY hard to like him. Firstly he was on probation and still he got into fights. He was a CARELESS ALCOHOLIC MANWHORE ASSHOLE. And as the h said, he was...“the most ill-behaved, unprofessional, out-spoken guy on the planet”So the story goes something like this. (view spoiler)[The H accidentally switches his phone with the h when he got into a fistfight near a hotdog stand where the h was eating a hotdog with her friend.He calls the h to meet in the morning to exchange the phones. But he oversleeps and forgets about the meeting. Then after the h’s constant badgering he tells her to meet at a club the next evening. But again he misses the meeting as he was busy hooking up with some random girl. (He was a MANWHORE).He keeps irritating her and avoids giving her phone back. (It got so repetitive)Finally h gets access to his calendar through his phone where she knows where his next appointment is. And it turns out that his appointment is with her dad. And then her dad announces that they both will have to work together. (hide spoiler)]Seriously the h was DUMB. She should have lodged a complaint in the police station against the H for keeping her phone if she was SO annoyed. What the hell was she doing following him everywhere for her phone than drooling watching him take of his clothes. Stupid woman.The H was very disgusting. Other than being a manwhore he was a disgusting creature. He talked about his piss, his burps, his bloating....eww...I don’t want to hear about that. Then what the hell was that massage. He went to a massage parlor while the h watched him getting massage. YUCK. Maybe this book is entertaining and funny for others. Also the H might redeem himself after they start working together.But I have zero patience remaining to go further.I’m done.

He has a gives-zero-fucks attitude, a giant chip on his shoulder, and is almost never without a drink in one hand a a cigarette in the other. And then he bumps into Sutton Green, literally, and his world takes a turn. The two manage to switch phones during their encounter and it leads to a cat and mouse game with Sutton following Roark around until he gives her her phone back. Roark, of course, is his usual asshole self but it leads to forcing Sutton out of her comfort zone of kitty pajamas and never leaving her Apartment past 9pm.Now, you may expect me to say something along the lines of "...and then he showed his true caring self." But that's not going to happen, because Roark starting out as an asshole and he continued as one. And honestly I think that was the best thing about his character. There wasn't a sudden change to his personality and he didn't magically become some lovable guy over the course of a few chapters. He owned his bad-boy image and I loved that about him. It had me anticipating each turn of the page just waiting to see what he would do next. There was still a change in his character as he grew throughout the story but it was gradual and certainly not without a few bumps along the way. Sutton had me worried in the beginning and I wasn't sure if she was going to be one of those innocent heroines that just makes me roll my eyes the entire book. But as I read on I realized that there was actually a lot of hidden depth to her and I found it really fun to get to discover that. Roark definitely pushed her past her boundaries, but she did just the same to him and it was a perfect match. Overall, I really enjoyed reading this story and I would recommend it for any of my fellow bad boy lovers out there. I'm also really excited now to go back and read Roark's friend Bram's story in The Secret to Dating Your Best Friend's Sister. He had just a few small features in this book but I can tell that I'm going to love him in his own book. ARC kindly provided in exchange for an honest review.

I fell in love with him the first time "fook" left his lips and couldn't stop obsessing over him until the last page (well, I am still thinking of him but that's neither here nor there)... Every time I read a book by Meghan I feel like it is one of a kind. No other author has her flair for writing and regardless of the fact that I have read plenty of enemies-to-lovers novels in the past this book makes me feel like I read the genre for the very first time. Time and time again she surprises me with her witty stories, lovable characters, and top notch plots that leave me aching for more. This book has all of that and more. Diary of a Bad Boy is a must read for any Meghan Quinn fan and even for those who have never read her books before. You will fall into INSTANT love with this sexy Irishman and feel a deep love for his troubled character. He pulled at my heartstrings (his family life is not the best), and made me laugh out loud numerous times. Sutton- the lady of the hour- is just as sweet and lovable. I loved how her sass came out when she first laid eyes on Roark and how it didn't go away! All in all, the two together are the FULL PACKAGE. Diary of a Bad Boy has EVERYTHING I wanted in a book. An enemies-to-lovers trope (I love the angst and banter between these two especially when they are arguing), a sexy man with an accent that will make all romance lovers drool, a sweet and irresistible heroine that any man would be lucky to have, and an ultra sweet ending that had me smiling from ear to ear.I think it's pretty clear that I highly recommend this one. Everyone will fall in love with these two- I just know it!

Meghan Quinn has proven time and time again just how versatile of an author she can be. She comes up with some really funny, loving, yet douchey characters. Diary of a Bad Boy was no exception. The title alone drew me in. This book was a sexy and witty age gape, enemies-to-lovers romance.Roark McCool is all cool and snarky. He's a broody bastard with a Irish accent (yum). His vices include drinking, smoking (a lot of both), and losing his temper which is what gets him into trouble in the first place. He's a respected sports agent and one fight in particular has him bumping (literally) into Sutton. He loses his phone and in turn ends up with her phone... Let the madness ensue, for it becomes a tantalizing game of cat and mouse between these two.Sutton Grace Green is the complete opposite of Roark. She's young, a bit naive, sassy, spunky, and ends up stuck with Roark's phone. The bastard makes matters worse by not giving it back to her so easily. So Sutton becomes his shadow. Follows him everywhere. Sparks fly. Cue sarcastic and witty banter. She can't stand him but she's also attracted to him. It's just a hot mess. Sutton is a character who wears her heart on her sleeve. You see her progress throughout, and spending time with Roark builds up her confidence.Their chemistry is undeniable. Fate brings them together, especially when they soon realize they must work together since it turns out Sutton's father is one of Roark's major clients (yikes). I'm sure you can figure out how that goes.I loved this book! There wasn't a moment that didn't have me laughing with Roark's antics. Of course there were those frustrating moments as well, especially towards the end that just had me shaking my head #TeamRoark. Bonus, some beloved characters from The Secret to Dating Your Best Friend's Sister make a cameo 💃🏼. I definitely recommend that you not only read this book but all the books!!*ARC WAS KINDLY PROVIDED IN EXCHANGE FOR AN HONEST REVIEW.*

But then she finally grew a backbone only to lose it when it came to her father. Thankfully it came back strong at the end and having her acknowledge the fact she got it from Roark helped.But omg her dad. He was such a hypocritical douche and no one called him out on it. Seriously hold up a freaking mirror.I loved Roark so hard. But then I am a sucker for an arsehole and an accent. He actually knew he was a jerk and made no apologies for it. Watching him man up and reading his diary entries and his inner monologue was so much fun and made me fall for him so hard. He made the story for me.The ending with Sutton’s dad felt a little rushed and I would have liked a little look into Roark and Sutton’s future but overall it was a solid 4 star read that I highly recommend, just be prepared for a little hair pulling frustration.

The dealings he has with his clients and the relation he has with whiskey which helps him block out all emotions. But when he accidentally switches phones with Sutton, he finds her combination of innocence and wit irresistible and taunts her with not returning her phone until they’re both hooked on one another. Even though he’s older, she’s out of his league and she’s one of his biggest client’s daughter, he can’t stay away and neither can she. But can these two opposites find a way to balance each other and find a way around all the other obstacles that trouble them?Quinn delivers a bad boy hero to fall in love with and a witty romance which finds its legs in the middle sections as Sutton and Roark come to know one another and fall for each other in the process. Each chapter is preceded by a delightful diary entry by Roark which gives an added view into his tortured soul. Even though he’s a bit… or a lot rough around the edges, underneath he’s a big-hearted individual who was waiting for the right gal to come along. Even though Sutton was a bit too naïve, warranted some frustration and at times handled things poorly, Roark’s character pops off the page with infectious magnetism. While the beginning was a bit drawn out and the end a foregone conclusion, the in between was incredibly fun, witty, sexy and charming. Diary of a Bad Boy is a standalone contemporary romance by Meghan Quinn. It is an enemies to lovers forbidden romance, told from both points of view with a happy ending.* I was given an ARC of this book courtesy of the author via InkSlinger.

Well, all three blokes, Bram, Rath and Roark stole our hearts. Diary of a Bad Boy is Roark’s story, so of course, we’re now desperate to hear Rath’s exploits which we hope is next! Hmmm who is that mystery women we heard snippets of in this book? We can’t wait to find out!In Dating the Bad Boy, thirty-two-year-old Roark certainly lived up to that moniker! A cheeky bad boy prankster who’s coping mechanism is a gallon of Jameson’s and a good bit of brawling, hence the black eyes he’s constantly sporting. He’s not in the market for a relationship, however, there was a lot more to the Roark persona than what we had glimpsed in Bram’s book. Learning his back story, the pain he carried, the self-loathing he expressed, made us understand him so much more and our hearts broke for him.‘Lust is easy. Safe. Never leads to disappointment, either me or the other person. Love is conditional. Limited.’As with the first book, we adored that bromance between Rath, Bram and Roark. These boys have a wicked sense of humour and a sweet, if not piss taking camaraderie which had us once again, giggling over their antics and banter. One down, two to go. Is there a woman capable of taming bad boy Roark, the man from Killarney with the lethal Irish lilt?‘I want to hear about all his troubles and smooth the crease between his brow with my soft encouragement.’After yet another dust-up, Roark gets his phone mixed up with another phone belonging to a girl named Sutton. Sutton is a sweet girl with southern manners who is appalled by Roark’s behaviour and even more annoyed by the fact he makes it very difficult for her to get her phone back. Some witty text messages ensue and some coincidences about who Sutton is.Roark is quite a contradiction. In his professional life, he’s worked hard to build a business and is known for his professionalism as a sports agent, and his attention to his clients. In his personal life, he’s a bit of a f**k up and can be a right arse. In Sutton, he sees an easy target to rile her feathers, but he underestimated her and brought out the sass that even she wasn’t aware she was capable of.There’s a touch of forbidden love, enemies to lovers, an age gap, some bloody funny ribbing, a bit of swoony romance as well as some intense sexual chemistry and passion, aching desire, all rolled up into one entertaining rom-com which this wonderful author is synonymous with. We adore her sense of humour, her men are some of the most vulnerable, amusing and gorgeous blokes we’ve read, now add Roark to that list.We’re loving these books that can be read as standalone’s but do yourselves a favour and read Bram’s book first, it will have you in stitches and set the scene perfectly for Roark and Sutton’s story. “I’m an asshole, Sutton. The sooner you realize that, the better.”“You have moments when you’re not.”“Don’t hold onto them, because they’re few and far between.”“They are, but when you have those moments, they make an impact.” Available to purchase belowAmazon USAmazon UKCome visit and follow us at:✲ TotallyBookedBlog✲ TBB on Facebook✲ TBB on Instagram✲ TBB on Twitter✲ TBB on Pinterest

    Brilliant. I really really enjoy this book. It's the first book I've read from this author and it won't be the last. Her writing is brilliant.

I really really enjoy this book. It's the first book I've read from this author and it won't be the last. Her writing is brilliant. I luvd the text and diary parts of this book it was so funny. Seeing Roark finally open up well try was great and the text he would send to Sutton was funny this guy really kept her on her toes. He would drive her crazy in every way. Roark is your typical had boy he smokes drinks sleeps with who he wants he live is good. But it's slowing getting out of control he's fighting drinking more he just can't control his temper. So this is where the diary comes in he was told to log down his thought. This isn't something he wouldn't normally do but he has no choice but to do it. I did find it funny how he meets Sutton with something he's not meant to be doing. This guy is just so great I luv him. Sutton is this prim proper woman. She doesn't go out or drink much doesn't have many friends. She works hard and knows what she wants from lfe. She has everything set in place. But she's happy well she thinks she is until she meets the most annoying sexy men ever Roark McCool. He is the most annoying man ever she doesn't know how he got to be one of the best sport agents in NY. This guy fight,drinks, smokes, he's arrogant, annoying, confident and totally sexy. There is one thing she wants from this guy one thing but can she get it no and it's her. He makes her run around like a mad woman. They both didn't know what they were getting themselves into. Just over a PHONE. This book was so good I enjoyed it from the start to finish. Both Roark and Sutton are brilliant. There both so different but for together at the same time. The whole opposites attract between them is funny and sexy. They shouldn't fit evertything about them if different but they are so sexy and great together. I did feel sorry for Roark he hides so much from people he has so much anger. It just comes out in the wrong way sometimes. It's hard not to luv this guy the way he was in the start of this book he was a proper bad boy showing how bad and mean he could be. He just didn't know who he was dealing with. It was fun to see Sutton becomes more open and be sassy towards Roark she really did keep him in his toes in part but he really did have her running around like a crazy person in the beginning. It was good that they both got the upper hand in each other. I would highly recommend this book. Like I said it's the first book I've read from this author. I can't wait to read more from her. I have to go back and read Bram and Julia's story having getting a bit of Bram in this book. I'm dying for more of Rath as well and this EX of his they were talking about. I really luvd this book and I m looking forward to see what I read next from this author.

I find her characters to be generally unique, refreshing and her humor different from the standard romcom moments. Roark has all the parts I love in her heroes. Genuinely good at his core, quick wit, insanely attractive, but this is the first time Meghan has written a bad boy with the drinking and the fighting. I have to say I enjoyed it. It meant a complexity to his character when she delved into what drove his actions. More than any of that, though, I loved every moment he was with Sutton. They just had that uniquely magical chemistry that some fictional characters have. And, no, it wasn’t just in the bedroom, it was in their texts and their dialogue. I genuinely enjoyed their conversations as much as the actual physical intimacy between the two. Sutton was funny. In fact most of the humor comes from her naivety and her frustration and temptation of Roark. She brought a bit of comic relief to the story and peace to the hero we love. The plot is really well paced. Meghan takes from enemies to friends to lovers. She makes the couple work for but also keeps readers engaged with the attraction they try to resist and the banter. The conflict is pretty clear, happens relatively late in the game, and is resolved rather easily, and yet I didn’t really effect my love of the story because my adoration or Roark and Sutton is so high. Th Diary of the Bad Boy is another must read for Meghan Quinn. She makes me laugh and swoon and just generally enjoy all things romcom. ARC received in exchange for an honest review

But as Roark pushed her buttons he unleashed a vixen, someone not to be messed with and I love Sutton’s character so much because of it. I’ve fallen deeply in love with this story and these characters and I can’t praise Meghan enough! A hilarious, swoon, heart felt enemies to lovers story about the innocent country girl who’s never really experienced life and the closed off Irish fuck up that has never felt worthy of love.

    I thought I had a winner winner chicken dinner! Oh how disappointed I was the further I read. I'm not a prude and I like a hot romance -- but I prefer substance over the sexual content -- and it just wasn't to be had with this book. An overload of way too many details -- down and dirty details -- and not nearly enough normal day-to-day living and relationship building between the pairing.

Oh how disappointed I was the further I read. I'm not a prude and I like a hot romance -- but I prefer substance over the sexual content -- and it just wasn't to be had with this book. An overload of way too many details -- down and dirty details -- and not nearly enough normal day-to-day living and relationship building between the pairing. Why can't these characters spend some time talking -- share some normal conversation?The hero was basically a thirty-two year old man-child, who was one of the most vulgar, foul-mouthed ridiculous heroes I've read in quite some time. And believe me, I wanted to like him -- who wouldn't want to fall for a tall, dark and sexy Irish devil. But I felt like I needed to throw a bar of soap at him and tell him to clean up his “fookin” filthy-talking mouth. It was a lot over-the-top for my liking — at times way too aggravating and made me grit my teeth. Oh, there was some laughter -- especially at first, but it soon got old, pushed aside by the down and dirty. There were plenty of cat and mouse games between them with some cute, sexy and witty dialogue, too. Roark and Sutton (by the way I loved their names) made an interesting contrast, but never really sold me on anything except their sexual addiction to each other. Really, as much as I wanted to be, I was never really sold on their coupling. What kept me going were Roark’s diary entries where this tortured 32-year-old man child spoke the truths and laid out his soul. And then along comes Sutton Green, the beautiful blonde with a kind and gentle heart -- the daughter of one of his biggest clients who throws him out of whack completely. That’s where the real goodies could be found, and why I at least chose to give him a chance and kept on reading. It was in those moments of honesty as he complained about his therapist, his childhood and worried over his life-choices where he made groundbreaking progress. Could he have found his match and might he be more than he first appeared on the surface? And yes, he did clean up his act (well sorta) and Sutton did make a difference in his life. Still, this one just didn’t mesh with me quite like some of Quinn’s other books. The positives never outweighed the negatives. Just not my cuppa this go round.

She wasn't backing down when Roark was pushing all of her buttons. That girl was going toe-to-toe with him, it was so much fun to watch. This is yet another great one and I hope Rath gets a story, that man needs some good lovin'.

Now the tittle of this book his Diary of a Bad Boy and what a bad boy the hero is… maybe be a little too bad for my liking. Roark is a filthy-mouthed, sexy alpha Irishman who loves women, booze and fights. Sutton is a beautiful, sweet, polite young lady who also happened to be a daughter of an NFL quarterback. The two first met at a bar where Roark of course gotten in a fight and at some point, ended up with each other phones. When Sutton called and attempt to retrieve it she quickly found out Roark is a handful and it isn’t going to be easy. I have to say though you have to be a little patience with the hero. Roark appears to be rude and obnoxious, but he has his insecurities and a good man. You’ll see, Roark’s journal said it all! He is a bit jaded, broken and the best thing that happened to him is Sutton. She is charming, kind, polite but she is also sassy when it comes to verbal banters with her nemesis 😊 Roark knows she is too much of a good girl and he should stay away. Not to mention her dad is his important client. Did he stay away? NO 😊 They are quite a pair and dare I say this is the perfect case of opposite attracts. The chemistry/sexual tension is explosively, steamy, and sizzling hot. LOVE IT! Overall, Diary of a bad boy is well written, heartwarming, fun read - perfect combination of humor, heat, romance.

    Not gonna lie...while I loved this book, it also made me so frustrated. At one point, I was literally all and had to put my kindle down and walk away. Meghan Quinn seems to be good at that...frustrating me in books. Like I said, I did love the book. I loved Sutton and Roark. I loved how they met, got to know each other through text messages.

I loved Sutton and Roark. I loved how they met, got to know each other through text messages. Yes, he was a frustrating jerk and the phone bit went on a little to long for me, but I kind of liked watching her follow him around all day just because he found he enjoyed her company. And I liked that he cared enough about her safety to let her stay in his guest room that night. I really did like how he slowly started to change just because he wanted to spend time with her and she made him feel better. And their chemistry...OFF THE CHARTS. While Sutton was, not quite shy, but meek and not assertive, I loved that as she and Roark got to know each other, she sort of found herself too. She grew a backbone, learning how to stand up for herself. I loved when she put Roark in his place for his lack of interest in her dad's charity/camp and again when she put her foot down about their relationship. And don't get me started on her teasing him when they were in Texas. That was PRICELESS. Probably my favorite part. I will say, the biggest frustration came near the 85% mark, when Sutton's dad finally found out Sutton and Roark were dating. I KNEW it was going to go bad. Everything had been too good up until that point. And sure enough, Sutton made it bad but her dad made it even worse. That was when I had to put my kindle down because it was almost to painful to watch. Between the two of them, they just tore Roark apart and it was awful. Obviously, things got better...there's a HEA but after watching her dad rip into Roark, it just kind of dampened my enjoyment of the book. It was almost out of character for what I'd seen of Sutton's dad up until that point, and it was the same with Sutton. She may not have been assertive, but she also didn't shy away the truth and for her to literally push Roark away in the presence of her dad, and deny any connection to him, it was harsh. Consequently, I knocked a start off my rating for that. Overall though, I'd definitely recommend this book.

DIARY OF A BAD BOY is EVERYTHING!!! Meghan Quinn woos with her all-the-feels writing once again! From the very first page, I was POSSESSED as I sank into this love story. So UTTERLY ADDICTED to this romance. Diary of a Bad Boy was my drug and I couldn’t get enough hits of this potent and passionate romance. I found myself devouring the pages, unable to put this hug-my-heart book down. The mixture of tension and tenderness was MY UNDOING. I was so enamored with the sassy and heart-stopping writing that I wanted to grab my kindle and give it a long hug. ”Do you know what’s bad for me? You.” This is a story of opposites attract, of a hero and heroine fighting their feelings for each other, trying not to cross the already-blurred line to succumb to the point of no return. Maybe it’s the Irish lass in me, but I fell head-over-heels in love with the hero, Roark, the Irish bad boy with a big heart. Sutton is the prim and proper beauty who tamed the broody beast. A heroine who morphs from unsure and demure to feisty and fierce femme fetale. This hero and heroine clash yet combust together, bringing out the best in each other. Yin and yang. The most catchy cat-and-mouse game of a story that chased and caught my heart. Dark and broody with a hint of sensitivity under that searing gaze, he’s all trouble, and I want to be a part of it. Diary of a Bad Boy is oh so steamy and deliciously dreamy. A stirring, sweep-you-in-the feels fairytale of a romance. With a beautiful and broken bad arse of an Irish hero, a stunning and strong lass of a heroine, witty and wonderful writing, and a romance with all the feels, this tale is a TRUE GEM. Entertaining, endearing, and emotionally rich, this story shines like the brightest diamond. The writing is PURE MAGIC. Fun, flirty, fierce, and full of feels. I smiled and swooned so much. I LOVED everything about this book! I was such a GONER for this love story. Hook. Line. Sinker. Done. ”You’re mine now. Do you understand that?” A DELICIOUSLY DREAMY, MUST-READ ROMANCE!!!💋💋💋💋💋 lovestruck lass kisses Website: http://www.bookaliciousbabes.comFacebook: http://www.facebook.com/bookaliciousb...Readers Group: http://www.facebook.com/groups/BBBBoo...
