Book Review: The Diary of a Bad Boy by Meghan Quinn


I fell in love with this hot bad boy in The Secret to Dating my Best Friend’s Sister, where Roark was a minor character and best friends with Bram and Rath–the three best friends from Yale. How much of a bad boy Roark is, was showcased in Bram’s story though in The Diary of a Bad Boy, Roark still shows the readers how bad he is. He lives up to the title from how he treats his friends to complete strangers. His reasons for being a bad boy is what he hides from everyone but his best buds. They are the only two people who know the complete truth about his past. Just because he’s a bad boy doesn’t mean anything when it comes to his business. He’s the best sports agent. He has ways of getting more money and endorsements than anyone. He takes his job very seriously. He even has a few clients who attempt to look out for him, one being a man he idolizes–Foster Green.

Sutton Green has lived a charmed life with her grandparents and part time with her father, New York Steel star quarterback who is set to retire this year after spending the last two decades on the field. Now living in New York City–actually Brooklyn, she has a tiny closet for an office at her father’s foundation after completing her education. She lives a fairly mundane life unlike her bestie, Maddie. Saturday night is usually spent curled with with her giant cat in her PJs watching Netflix. Unless, Maddie drags her out which is rare. Sutton decided she’s going to fulfill some New Year’s resolutions. Maddie helps her with one–tasting their way through all the iconic New York foodies, beginning with Gray’s Papaya hot dogs. This is where Sutton’s life changes.

Swapped phones.

Anger and frustration.


Spa day.

Post Office visits.

And a huge check mark on the last item on her New Year’s resolution: Fall in love.

Is there a way for Roark to open up to Sutton about himself and his past?

Is he willing to for her?

Can he earn the trust of both Greens?

How could he break the trust of the one person he idolizes more than anything in the world?

Can Sutton make her father see what she does in Roark?



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.
