HereÂ´s the introductory chapter of the book "BadBoys" by Carole Lieberman:
What is a bad boy?
He is a rebel without a cause, a cool dude in a motorcycle jacket, a real life Huckleberry Finn, who wants to take you on a wild river ride of adventure. He is wounded, moody, misunderstood, a dreamer, a seducer, a daredevil; he is a man of mystery, and a fascinating paradox.
He is both a lost little boy, and a man with a dark side. He breaks your heart with his wicked ways, but whether he is a wanton wolf, or a dangerous desperado, he makes you long to rescue him from his pain. He is hurtful, cruel, or simply careless and self-absorbed, but you can't resist jumping on his motorcycle, and roaring off into the steamy night with him. And once you have given him your heart forever, he is gone with the wind.
He is someone who sets off throbbing sexual and aggressive passions with you, because he is aloof and elusive, you get caught up in the challenge and the excitement of the chase. Though he is not always someone you would really want, even if you did capture him. A bad boy may tell you he is generally right, he is a frog you hope to turn into a fairy tale prince, with the magic of your kiss.
