I'm an avid reader and reviewer of romance books, especially m-m and erotica. You can find me on http://www.goodreads.com/user/show/4669232-baba-marcus-tyler-tate-dan-ty-hunter
"Having a kid is like having your heart walking around outside your body for the rest of your life."
"In high school I felt like an ugly unicorn." Trip grabbed his buckle firmly. "Big fucking shank hanging off me."
Silas fell back on the couch. "Hey, I like unicorns. Unicorns are just weaponized ponies."
Adorable and adorkable. Nerdy and geeky. Endearing and charming. Cheeky and witty. Hot and sexy. Crazy and funny.
Damon, you are my little demon and I loved your pearls ofwisdom dorkiness!
Holy horny downtime, Batman!

I'm aware of the fact that I shouldn't compare apples and oranges. Yet my mind can't help wandering back to Hot Head and Dante and Griff pretty darn regularly, because there are some books I will always carry close to my heart. Fact is, I loved Bad Idea but here's another fact: I loved Hot Head more. So, 4.5 stars it is.
"God, I think I wanna f@ck me now."
Don't expect anything similar to Hot Head coz you might end up disappointed. Bad Idea is very different but it's a very good kind of different. Plus, it's definitely written in Damon's distinct and witty voice. I might be wrong but I have an inkling that there must be more of Damon's personality and professional background interwoven in Bad Idea than in Hot Head. If my memory serves me right then he's been writing for stage and screen for a long time, and I'm pretty sure that Bad Idea gave us a realistic insight into the entertainment industry.
"I figured you'd set up the Big Dog pavilion, peeing on your hydrants."
Sometimes I felt like someone had catapulted me straight into a comic book, considering the interwoven comic speech and the somewhat manic plot. Nowadays I don't read comics anymore but as a kid I was a fan of Asterix & Obelix and The Adventures of Tintin. Yeah, the good old days. To me Bad Idea was a breath of fresh air and I really do appreciate it when an author provides books with different plots and characters. As a matter of fact, I don't want to read the same book over and over again, and I enjoy to taste something original.
"Mister, I'm about to write you a reality check. Or would you prefer the cold, hard cash of truth."
There's more to Bad Idea than two quirky main protagonists. The story delivers a great cast of well-drawn secondary characters and I especially loved Jillian. She's cool and crazy funny!
"Kiddo, there's so much (view spoiler) in that thing I can taste his precum."
From a physical point of view Silas and Trip differ greatly. Yet what makes a relationship work are inner values, and as long as heart, mind and body are perfectly aligned, you've got a chance to make it work. After some turmoils Silas and Trip accomplished to get their HEA. By the way, the men lovin' was titillating and hot! Oh, and don't get any wrong ideas. Even though Silas does creature makeup he's a very manly guy. There's really nothing effeminate about him. I just wanted to make that clear. Besides, I'm not ashamed to admit that I'm not a huge fan of effeminate male characters either.
"I'm being serious. Speaking from vast dick experience, that's a pretty manageable dickiness as dicks go."
Silas relaxed. "I try to do something terrifying every day. Keeps my heart on its toes."
Trip chuckled. "Your heart has toes?"
"Maybe. It runs around enough."
Illustrators draw every important detail and moment, authors write them down and readers…well, they read the stories but we all have the same goal on our minds: We do all those things so we won't forget (I quote) a single second of a single moment, because what if we never got to have them again?
Bad Idea is a fast-paced and quirky read that provides an interesting plot, great dialogue and a compelling narrative. I caught myself smiling and laughing all the time. An author told me a while ago that she had a fantastic time in Damon's company during an authors' event and I believe her in a heartbeat. Besides, I'm certain you've heard this question already "Which celebrity would you like to meet?" Damon is one of those 'celebrities' I'd love to meet. In a heartbeat.
