Obnoxious Bad Boy (Am I the Problem? Book 3) by Devon Doe

Obnoxious Bad Boy is an enemies-to-lovers romcom with a fair amount of steam.

From the blurb:

Tl;dr: Am I the problem for hooking up in secret with the local bad boy? (Everyone thinks I hate him)
I [20M] am an accomplished pre-law student with my life mapped out for me by my parents. One day, I’ll be a respected lawyer, but in the meantime, I’m enjoying college, writing shameless gay smut, and getting absolutely zero action.

But I do have a crush. On the most obnoxious local bad boy [25M] and the exact type of person I shouldn’t like. He’s a tattoo artist, an ex-burglar, and, worst of all, an influencer. He’s ripped, inked, and his ice-blue eyes pierce my heart (even if he did once spill coffee on my laptop and was very mean about it).

He’s also straight and I hate him because I can’t have him.

Or so I thought, because one day, when he notices me, my world spins out of control, and my morals go out the window. I’ve always been the skinny pale nerd with no flirting game, but to Vex, I’m his sweetie, his baby boy, and his eager plaything. I can’t help but love it.

But he doesn’t want to come out, my trust fund is on the line, and I’m falling for him all too fast. This was supposed to be a no-strings-attached arrangement, so I shouldn’t want him to be my boyfriend. But I do.

Am I the problem for trying to get more than he’s willing to give? Or is he the problem for dragging me into this?

Addendum: If my parents find out I’m seeing an ex-con, they’re gonna kill me.


Obnoxious Bad Boy” is an enemies-to-lovers, steamy, opposites-attract romcom where a snotty nerd gets the bad boy of his dreams and has to deal with the consequences of their hush-hush relationship.

While the books in the series share a setting each can be read as a standalone.

(Aaron and Vex’s story)

Will our nerdy protagonist find the courage to fight for what he truly wants, or will he lose everything he holds dear? Don't miss out on this scorching hot enemies-to-lovers romcom that will leave you crying with laughter!

Jacquie's Review:

Aaron and Vex had great chemistry. It was easy to see how compatible they were despite their differences. They just made sense. The steamy scenes were fantastic.

I'll admit to being more than a little frustrated at the drama late on. Their decisions had me scratching my head.

The resolution was well done, though I would have had Vex grovel more, and I loved how Aaron's friends rallied around him.

Opposites attract, first time, coming out, found family, and a whole lot of steam. Obnoxious Bad Boy could easily be read as a standalone, though characters from both books make an appearance. Aaron's friendship with Matt is adorable
