Kurzbeschreibung

To remake their future, they’ll have to use pieces of their broken past.

Bad in Baltimore, Book 4

The young man the world knew as Jordan Barnett is dead, killed as much by the rejection of his first love at his moment of greatest need, as by his ultra-conservative parents’ effort to deprogram the gay away.

In his place is Silver, a streetwise survivor who’s spent the last three years learning to become untouchable…unless you’re willing to pay for the privilege. He shies away from anything that might hold him down long enough for betrayal to find him again.

Zebediah Harris spent time overseas, trying to outrun the guilt of turning his back on the young man he loved. Now, almost the moment he sets foot back in Baltimore, he discovers Silver on a street corner in a bad part of town. His effort to make amends lands them both in jail.

Trapped together in a cell, Silver sits on his mountain of secrets and plans a seductive form of revenge, but finds that using a heart as a stepping stone is no way to move past the one man he can’t forgive, let alone forget.

Warning: Contains a surly hero. May cause angst. A prolonged delay in sexual situations may cause frustration. Author recommends a steady dose of familiar friends and characters to alleviate those symptoms. No actual teenagers were used during the construction of the backstory.

~Reviewed by ANN & posted at Under the Covers Book Blog

I’ve been a big fan of K.A. Mitchell for awhile so I was excited for the fourth book in the Bad in Baltimore series called BAD INFLUENCE. However, upon starting, I felt something different about this book. At first, I wondered if it was because I wasn’t in a good reading mojo. The week had been a brutal one and had sapped a lot of my emotions out already, but for some reason, I still couldn’t find myself connecting to a lot of the characters in this book.

Jordan Barnett told his parents he was gay. Instead of accepting it, his parents threw him out and put him in a conversion camp where they hoped they could remove him of his sins. Jordan then went to see someone he trusted to help him out of the situation, but was turned down. Despite his broken heart, Jordan didn’t give up but transformed into Silver, a street-savvy man who became a prostitute.

I really liked Silver. I thought he was the one character in this book that had different dimensions, wasn’t overly annoying and had a strong presence. However, the rest of the characters seemed to annoy me most of the time as I read. Mitchell places a lot of emphasis on past characters in the series. While I think it’s nice to have the tie in, it also creates for a lot of drama, especially when you include individual as well as couple issues. The story becomes too convoluted with everything that is going on.

Because of that, I also feel that Zeb’s character wasn’t really formed fully. He didn’t stand out very much and I still don’t know why. I just never really connected with him at all and found his character to be forgettable. As a result, it made it hard for me to believe in the romance.

So while BAD INFLUENCE didn’t resonate with me as much as I had hoped it would, it’s still a great read if you enjoy angst in your books.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Better than the last book in this series. 12. Mai 2014
Von Sleeping Life - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
K.A. Mitchell is one of my go to authors in the genre, one of the first authors I really enjoyed. But I have been disappointed by this series. I love Bad Boyfriends buy I didn't really enjoy either Bad Company and Bad Attitude. Mostly I just never connected with the misunderstood rich kid story in both those books. Despite this I was looking forward to this book and while it's not perfect, It's much better than Bad Attitude but not as good as Bad Boyfriends.

What I liked about this book is that there are themes to this book beyond the basic love story, the problem of gay homeless teens. Mitchell has clearly done some thinking, and possibly research about this topic and it shows in the book. Silver isn't someone I can entirely relate to but he is believable. This book is most told in Silver's viewpoint unlike the rest of the books in the series, so we don't really get to know Zeb in the same way as he the rest of the characters in the series. It's hard to really get a feel for Zeb's motivations. But I do love how we see all the different characters from the previous books, and how they end up interacting together. I find it refreshing that they aren't all one big happy family.

If this book wasn't by a favorite author I would probably not have even read it because it deals with two tropes I tend to stay away from. And underage relationship and the haven't seen you in X years but I'm still in love with you trope. But neither of these are problems I have with the book. I think she handles both of these well. I don't feel squicky about Silver & Zeb's past relationship. Maybe because the underage part of the story is just the back story, and partly because it's mostly a 17 yrs old & 22 year old and Silver (Jordan then) intentionally deceived Zeb. Neither Silver nor Zed had their head screwed on then that's not unusual for teenagers, and It makes for good conflict at the begging of the story. And it's only been 3 years, and it's not like either of them were pinning for each other.

What mostly bothered me are details, like I've seen in K.A. Mitchel's books before. I can't figure out why Silver really needed to confront his father to get his documents, the authors logic doesn't make sense. Including that Silvers drivers license would still be valid. There are a lot of little details like Zed gets a half day off for "graduation" practice weeks before the school year is over. Or that it seems to be high summer, and then we find out his court date is set for June and then later July. And while most of the ending was sweet, and everyone gets their happily ever after including a "goal" for what they want to do in life. I found ending was a bit too abrupt, particularly Zeb quitting his summer job half way through the summer.

But the big issue I don't like is how casual Mitchell is about Silver's HIV diagnosis. It's made to be a big deal at the beginning, but by the end of the book it's as if it's a complete non issue. While Zeb gets momentary upset by it, none of the other characters seem to make it out to be much of a big deal. And it's as if the HIV issue has been reduced to take one pill a day, and practice safe sex.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Ohhh......Silver...... 16. April 2014
Von CCDuke - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
It seems as if I've been holding my breath waiting for Silver's story since the first time I saw him dancing with Eli. Each tiny little glimpse, and the slightly longer one in the previous book, has really whet my appetite for his story. 'Bad Influence' is book four in K.A. Mitchell's 'Bad in Baltimore' series and I've got to say, I really adore these books and the men who play roles in them. I would dearly love for this not to be the end of the series, but I honestly have no idea whether the author plans on going farther. I can only hope that she will.

Jordan Barnett, aka Silver, has spent the past almost four years taking care of himself and doing whatever he needed in order to survive. Unfortunately, he's now paying for some of those choices and will continue to pay for the rest of his life. Due to Silver being sent to a conversion camp to make him straight when he was seventeen, and then running away, he definitely has some attitude and very much is all about taking care of number one. Which can be a good thing, or it can be bad. If you spend so much time only caring about yourself, it blinds you to the people in your life who truly care and want what's best for you.

It was difficult for me to empathize, sometimes, with Silver's thought processes, particularly when they were focused on Zeb and the past they shared. Mainly because Silver lied to Zeb all those years ago and pretended to be over eighteen. When they were caught, Silver was sent away by his ultra conservative parents and when Silver escaped and ran to Zeb, Zeb refused to help him and turned him away. I can see both sides of the story. Silver is still devastated that Zeb abandoned him and Silver feels Zeb should pay for that. Whereas Zeb feels Silver shouldn't have lied and put Zeb's teaching license at stake. The good thing is that as the story progressed I got to watch Silver begin to slowly mature and take responsibility for his own actions and choices instead of allowing Zeb to continue wearing his hair shirt.

“Do you want me out of your life?” Zeb said flatly.
Silver spun to face him. “No, I don't want that.”
“What do you want?”
He had to decide now? What if it was the same thing he'd wanted at sixteen? Zeb. Zeb and a house and a dog."

It was almost painful to watch Silver and Zeb work out their issues and try to trust again. Because the past few years involved trading sex for money, food, or a roof over his head, Silver has to learn the concepts of a real, adult relationship and my heart did go out to him in that struggle. I was delighted with the path the author took, which I shouldn't have been surprised about, and I was happy to see Eli, Quinn, Jamie, and Gavin get involved. If I had a complaint, which I don't, but if I did, I would've loved a little more insight into Zeb. He was a difficult man to get a handle on and therefore I didn't get the feeling that I knew him very well.

Great job, KAM, you brought Silver to life for me and I'm very happy to have known him.

I've already read debates on this book, but personally, I enjoyed it. It wasn't an easy, angst-free ride. KA Mitchell has given us a complicated story that makes the reader have to think outside their normal parameters of what is acceptable and what isn't.
