Review: Romantic Behavior (Bad Behavior #4) by L.A. Witt & Cari Z.

Detective Andreas Ruffner is no fool—he’s found a man who loves him, puts up with him, and has stuck with him through hell and back, and it’s time to put a ring on it.

Darren Corliss is the love of his life, and he wants the whole world to know it. Now the fun part—the wedding!

Well, after the not-so-fun part of planning the wedding in between dealing with overbearing and impossible-to-please family members. With future mothers-in-law driving them both up a wall, the guest list growing out of control, and the wedding getting ever more complicated, Darren and Andreas have to wonder if they’re in over their heads.

But they’re going to make it to the altar if it kills them . . . and at this rate, it just might.

I waffled back and forth on this one but the vows and the fact that Andreas and Darren finally get their well deserved HEA are what tipped the scales from two to three hearts. But! I'm not big on wedding planning unless it's a comedy of errors and this was not that.

The wedding planning is stressful. It wore them down and it wore me down. Add to that Andreas's cuntisicle of a mother who never has a nice thing to say about anyone ever and I skimmed sections.

Honestly, I was expecting it to be fluffier than what it was. It is romantic but I wouldn't categorize it as fluffy. Then again, my fluff-o-meter is probably out of whack. Thanks Dreamspun Cracky Fluff line!

The other disappointment was the lack of sex which is consistent with the tone of the series, but I was craving some smutty times between them. They talk about how they're "fucking like bunnies" every chance they get but there's only one sex scene on page. It was nice with some edging and begging, so I ain't mad at it, but still.

Nevertheless, I would still recommend this series to those who enjoy a quiet romance between two men who are well-developed and have to navigate their relationship through quagmire after quagmire within their department. And if you like police procedurals this is a must read series.
