Blogtour: Reckless Behavior by L.A. Witt and Cari Z.

Please welcome L.A. Witt and Cari Z. with 

Reckless Behavior 

Bad Behavior #3 


After too many years of putting his job first, Detective Andreas Ruffner is getting his priorities straight. He’s ready to spend some quality time with his adult kids, not to mention come clean about some things he should’ve told them a long time ago. And introduce them to his partner and boyfriend, Darren Corliss.

But in a heartbeat, a family dinner turns into Andreas’s worst nightmare. When the dust settles, one of his kids is hurt, and the other three have been abducted.

Andreas is going to find his kids, and nothing, not even a broken ankle, is going to stop him. Thank God for his sharp, level-headed partner . . . who has a crisis of his own pulling him away when Andreas needs him the most. As both men try to support—and lean on—each other, they get no closer to finding the kids. And the longer the children are missing, the less likely it is they’ll ever be found.

Get the book:

About the series:

It’s “hell no” at first sight for newly partnered detectives Andreas Ruffner and Darren Corliss. Darren is too chipper, Andreas is too gruff, and that whole “IA wants me to prove you’re a dirty cop” thing really doesn’t get them off on the right foot.

It doesn’t matter if they like each other. They’re partners and that’s final. Though Andreas is easy on the eyes. And Darren is kind of cute. And . . . okay, maybe they can make this work.

They’d better, because as their cases get more horrifying—and more personal—they’ll have to trust each other with their lives, and with their hearts.

Check it out here.

We’re Going To Fix It!
by Cari Z
At this point in our blog tour you might be like, “Holy shit, how are you coming back from this?” Because yes, we do punish our darlings in unique and heartfelt ways in this book, but. If you get to the end—oh my goodness, please read to the end, skip to it if you have to—you’ll see that we’re planning on fixing it. Literally—there’s a follow-up novella titled Romantic Behavior, and I think you know where we’re going there. And it was just as necessary for us to write it as I hope it is for you to read it.
I have never, ever wanted to write a happily ever after so much as I did with this series. Each of the first three books ends with more of a happy for now, and usually I’m fine with that but frankly, Darren and Andreas deserve better. They deserve to have each other’s backs forever, in every way they can, and the novella makes that happen. Yay happiness!

Of course, it doesn’t happen easily. What kind of installment in a series called Bad Behavior would it be if everything happened easily? No, happiness isn’t going to come with perfect ease, but I think there’s something to be said for valuing more the things you work harder for. One thing I can promise you: there won’t be a big, wicked, dramatic case throwing everyone into flux and demanding time, energy and angst from our heroes.

No, all the angst this time is going to come from that thing they treasure most of all: family!

About the authors:

Cari Z was a bookworm as a child and remains one to this day. In an effort to combat her antisocial reading behavior, she did all sorts of crazy things, from competitive gymnastics to alligator wresting (who even knew that was legal!) to finally joining the Peace Corps, which promptly sent her and her husband to the wilds of West Africa, stuck them in a hut, and said, "See ya!" She also started writing, because some things she just thought she could do better. She's still climbing that ladder, but can't stop herself from writing, or from sharing what she creates.

Cari enjoys a wide range of literary genres, from the classics (get 'im, Ahab) to science fiction and fantasy of all types, to historical fiction and reference materials (no, seriously, there are so many great encyclopedias out there). She writes in a wide range of genres as well, but somehow 90% of what she produces ends up falling into the broad and exciting category of m/m erotica. There’s a sprinkling of f/m and f/f and even m/f/m in her repertoire, but her true love is man love. And there's a lot of love to go around.

Cari has published short stories, novellas, and novels with numerous print and e-presses, and she also offers up a tremendous amount of free content on Literotica.com, under the name Carizabeth.

L.A. Witt is an abnormal M/M romance writer who has finally been released from the purgatorial corn maze of Omaha, Nebraska, and now spends her time on the southwestern coast of Spain. In between wondering how she didn’t lose her mind in Omaha, she explores the country with her husband, several clairvoyant hamsters, and an ever-growing herd of rabid plot bunnies. She also has substantially more time on her hands these days, as she has recruited a small army of mercenaries to search South America for her nemesis, romance author Lauren Gallagher, but don’t tell Lauren. And definitely don’t tell Lori A. Witt or Ann Gallagher. Neither of those twits can keep their mouths shut . . .
L. A.’s backlist is available on her website, and updates (as well as random thoughts and the odd snarky comment) can be found on her blog or on Twitter (@GallagherWitt).

  9. Congrats, LA & Cari, and thanks for your thots about fixing it. I know a rule for m/m rom is a HEA, but tbh, it gets too predictable and saccharine (i.e., too unbelievable). I like nice endings and escapes, but sometimes I like what you do by not always making it easy, more true to life, to see how they deal with it. - Purple Reader,
