Publisher's Summary

From USA Today best-selling author Meghan Quinn comes a sassy and sweet romance about an Irish rebel who falls in love with the wrong girl. Full of witty banter and swoony moments, it's the perfect romantic comedy to binge on.

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

😍😄

Totally LOVED the bloody Irish accent. Loved the little bantering between the two main characters. Found some hilarious moments, like how Sutton upped one on him during a phone call. Loved the Narrators but I do find that it's quite disturbing when the male narrators female version comes through in their chapter and it sound either masculine or squeaky. Just a little irritating. Liked when they texted in this book though cause the actual female narrator came through as herself. Loved listening to but I'll let use judge for yourself, now I'm off to go find me an Irish man to love.

Read/Listen to "Secre to Dating" First

My first Meghan Quinn story. I didn't care for the heroine (she was SUPER naggy) or the hero (he was cliche, and a jerk- but NOT in a clever/sharp-tongued bad boy way. Sooo... sexy alpha asshole but without the sexy alpha part...) Made it hard to connect with these characters. Too much coincidence and superficial story for my taste, even for a light contemporary romance read. The H is introduced in Secret to Dating Your Best Friend's Sister. Maybe I would have established some regard for him in that book, but reading this on its own, not so much. THAT SAID: Solid writing. Clear and consistent. No issues with the plot, just didn't quite resonate with me.

Loving the bad boy!!

Meghan Quinn has provided me with yet another book boyfriend to love! Diary of a Bad Boy is the story of a whisky drinking, cigarette smoking, zero f*cks given Roark McCool, who is without a doubt one of the BEST heroes that I’ve listened to. He’s such a hot freaking mess…and I loved it. Sutton Green is a charming, sweet, southern bell who is no match for the rudeness she receives from Roark, until she goes outside her comfort zone and steps up her game. The steamy chemistry, the fantastic quick-witted banter was AMAZING between Sutton and Roark and I couldn’t get enough. The sexual tension between the two..my oh my! I absolutely adore this audio version!

Loved

I tried reading this book several times and couldn't never get past the first few chapters. I found it rather boring. When I found the audio book, I decided to give it another try and had the same problem. The first three hours had me wondering if I should just give up. But, I stuck with it and boy am I glad I did. I loved the first book in this series but I really loved this one. Roark was such a douchebag at first. I just hated him because of how jerky he was to Sutton. Once he finally realized that she was a really sweet girl that was good through and through, I started liking him. He turned out to be so sweet and caring in the end. Sutton had me cracking up a lot of the time. The way she through his crap back at him had me jumping for joy. But the very best part of this book was Bram. I knew when he found out about Roark's feelings for Sutton it was going to be good and he didn't disappoint. Meghan Quinn is such a great writer. I'm glad I finished this book.

Pointless

I love the author but this book was brutal. The book didn’t get interesting until about 5 hours in and just became predictable and boring.

Good story

Once I got into this story I enjoyed it. I'll be honest the first part was a bit rough for me to get through. I did not like either character at the beginning. Once I got farther into the story my opinion changed. While Sutton is a bit whiny, Roark definitely makes up for it. The narration was well done. If you like this author I think you will like this book.

Funny, heartfelt

I'm totally in love with this hilarious, heartfelt, enemies-to-lovers rom-com. I was completely swoon off my feet by Roark. His broody and bad boy exterior was a cover-up to protect his inner broken little boy. His diary entries were hilarious and showed us the true Roark underneath the mask that he always hid behind. My heart was broken by his constant self-depreciating thoughts and actions. I was delighted that he found his comfort and directions in Sutton. Sutton was a sweet and innocent country girl, but her inner vixen was unleashed after Roark’s constant provocation. Their quick and witty banter/texting and their back and forth games were hilarious and entertaining. They were so perfect for each other. The Bromance between Roark, Rath and Bram were still strong and endearing. I cannot wait for Rath's HEA to come. If you are looking for a quick read that give you lots of laughs and warm your heart, don’t miss out on this funny and charming story performed by the talented John Hartley and Lauren Ezzo

5 Perfect Rom-Com Stars!!

Diary of a Bad Boy is the second book that I have read by Meghan Quinn and this book totally had me laughing out loud and what a Irishman of my own.  The narrators John Hartley and Lauren Ezzo totally nailed Sutton and Roark.  John did the perfect Irish accent that had me sweating and Lauren had the perfect southern accent nailed down perfectly. Sutton Grace is the daughter of mega football star Foster who happens to switch cellphones with a stranger when a fight breaks out a local hot-dog restaurant.  Yes you read that correctly.  Fight in a hot-dog restaurant lol oh and it's all over ketchup. When Sutton finally get in touch with person who has her phone he decides to hold her cell hostage and give her the run away. Roark McCool is a big time sports agent who ends up with Sutton's cellphone and gives her the run away on switching back.  Roark is the type of person who lives his life on his time with very little consideration for others.  Little does he know that Sutton is will to stalk him until she gets her phone back.  This is where the fun starts.  Sutton and Roark could be anymore different.  Sutton is a straight up country farm girl who lives her life on the straight and narrow, while Roark is the complete opposite. So when these 2 figure out that they are forced to work together is where things get really good. So yes if you are looking for a total bad boy read where the alpha isn't 100% perfect and a little broken then this a total must read/listen. I promise you will not be disappointed.

Enjoyable and Entertaining. Great Performance!

I really enjoyed Author Meghan Quinn's story being brough to life by two get narrators. John Hartley & Lauren Ezzo's were a great choice, because they are so good at delivering all the emotions, that you feel transported to the amazing world the author had created for "Diary of a Bad Boy". Author Meghan Quinn delivers an amazing story and a wonderful performance by John Hartley and Lauren Ezzo. All in all, this story is entertaining, engrossing, intriguing, and captivating,

Funny, emotional, yet sexy, addictive read

Oh how I love watching a confirmed bachelor bad boy fall from grace, and Roark McCool is definitely the quintessential bad boy. Drinking, smoking, getting into bar brawls and generally getting himself into trouble. After getting into a fight over ketchup (yes ketchup) in a hotdog restaurant, causing Sutton Green (an innocent bystander) to stumble, their cell phones are accidentally swapped. Herein lie some outrageously funny moments as Sutton tries to get her phone back off the obnoxiously annoying Irish thug with a quick temper, who does nothing to make Sutton think he’s anything less than a bit of a loser, ok yes, a lot of a loser. Some truly laugh out loud moments. A funny, yet seriously emotional, addictive read. I loved rough around the edges Roark (and of course his two best friends). Great writing, an addictive storyline and wonderful narration from John Hartley and Lauren Ezzo, both new narrators to me.
