To the casual observer, it looks like a dream trip. For Tate O’Reilly, it’s anything but. He’s a man on a mission to rectify a critical mistake, and there’s nothing to hold him back—certainly not friends or family. For Tate, it all comes down to one simple thing—he must fix what he has broken.

What he doesn’t count on is meeting Gabriel Carillo. Gabriel is kind, mysterious, and seems to be on his own mission to ensure their paths keep crossing. But Tate’s hiding an awfully big secret—one he’s certain even Gabriel can’t forgive.

Does a man’s past have to determine his future? In the middle of cities filled with history, Tate is going to find out.


The Worst Bad Thing by J.E. Birk is a bitter sweet romance about learning to forgive yourself. Tate is a good person. He did a terrible thing, and that is haunting him throughout this book. He is scared to tell people his real name. He has gone to England and France to for fill a mission, one that is painful, and will not end well.
Tate is a good caring person. If he were not what happened would not haunt him so. I think that Gabriel is the angel that his name implies.
Gabriel, he travels a lot. Fit and tone, ex military. He too has things in this past that are haunting him. Not to mention PSTD. He really is a strong, well balanced character. He knows he wants to save Tate, but he also accepts Tate has gotta want to help Tate too.
Learning to live again, that is the hardest thing both of these men will ever do. When you want a bitter sweet romance that will make you smile and cry in places, this is the one to pick up.
