I don’t know about you, but I LOVE a Bad Boy. I think it’s because I’ve been taught to avoid them, which of course just makes me want them more, enough to write about them in MIA AND THE BAD BOY, book #2 in Backstage Pass: The Complete Series.
Their allure is undeniable and they usually have the reputation to back it up. They are cocky, arrogant, inconsiderate, closed off and as fans we can’t get enough. We want to break their hard exterior. We want to be the one girl to get through to the bad boy.
Here are a few of my favorites – in no particular order:
- John Bender The Breakfast Club
- Dylan McKay Beverly Hills 90210
- Chuck Bass Gossip Girl
- Jordan Catalano My So Called Life
- J.D. Heathers
Who are some of your favorite bad boys?

This Entangled Teen Crush book contains adult language, underage drinking, sexual situations, and lots of swoons. It may convince even the good-est of good girls to go bad.
This good girl’s about to meet her match…
Ryder Brooks is living the dream-he’s famous, loved by millions of girls, and miserable. All he really wants is to write his own music, not Seconds to Juliet’s sugary sweet pop. In order to do that, though, the “bad boy” of the band will have to play by the rules. And that includes behaving with his new-and super cute-über-good-girl tutor.
Mia Reyes is in fangirl heaven. Tutoring her favorite member of her favorite band? It’s a dream come true…until it turns into a complete nightmare. Ryder is nothing like she thought. He’s crude, arrogant, and pretty much a total jerk. And the worst part? She’s roped into pretending to be his girlfriend so that no one finds out he’s being tutored. Fake kisses, plenty of PDA, and even sharing his hotel room…
But sometimes even the baddest of bad boys needs a little redemption.
