Bad Boyfriend (Bad in Baltimore 2) by K.A. Mitchell

I wanted to read a May/December romance, and truth be told, the age gap between Eli and Quinn isn't so huge to make it a truly May/December (23 yo Eli, 35 yo Quinn), but it was enough to tinge the story with that flavor.

Quinn was in a relationship with Peter, and since Quinn was basically without family, while instead Peter had a tight knit one, Peter's family became Quinn's one. Only that Peter, a firefighter, and I think also being a Catholic was a component of it, was basically in the closet. Even with his family, it was like the pink Elephant in the glass shop: everyone knew but no one commented. Then Peter decides he is not gay and moves to get pregnant a woman and marries her. Peter's family nevertheless continues to include Quinn in their family meetings and Quinn decides he needs a cover, an hot boyfriend who will let them know he is over Peter. Eli fits the bill.

I really like the interaction between Eli and Quinn, and I loved both characters: Quinn so strong in body but a gentle and kind soul, Eli a little firecracker, all energy but suddenly like a kitten in need of warm and milk... only to be back to his full energy outburst the moment after.

If I have to find a fault, is that the story wasn't so long and I wouldn't mind to read more about Eli and Quinn as a real couple, facing the obstacles of living together, matching their different backgrounds and having that works out.
