Synopsis (from Goodreads): 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. In BAD BOYS AFTER DARK: MICK...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. 

What I like about Melissa Foster's books is that you know what you're going to get! There'll be a strong romance, and the characters will care about their family. Foster writes great and believable relationships between family members and it gives each of the characters a little something else. What you get with the After Dark books is an added level of heat!

The chemistry between Mick and Amanda was through the roof. They didn't do anything that I would consider risqué sex scene wise, but they were definitely hot together. There wasn't a moment, even when you could read their thoughts, where the passion stopped and it really worked. 

What worked even better was how much more there was to their relationship than just the physical. There was a good back and forth between them, and because Mick and Amanda had already known each other for three years, there was also that knowledge of each other. In other cases it may be creepy but because they worked closely together it came across as sweet. 

I loved Amanda's relationship with her sister Ally too (who has her own book Wild Boys After Dark: Heath). I remember liking the pair of them in that book too, but this one cemented the sisters in my head even more. 

Basically another one of Foster's books to love! Not that I'm in any way surprised about that!
