A flirty standalone novel* from New York Times and international bestselling author Elle Kennedy!
One night with him will change her life…
Between her waitressing job, volunteer work, and college classes, there are never enough hours in Maggie Reilly’s day. Especially not for a relationship. Luckily, she’s got the perfect arrangement: a lover she meets three or four times a year. But when she shows up at the hotel expecting to hop into bed with one man, she accidentally ends up with another—Ben Barrett, Hollywood’s most notorious bad boy.
Ben, determined to lay low after another scandal, just wants some much-needed sleep. What he gets is a scorching make-out session with a gorgeous, naked redhead. He won’t accept her apology, but what he will accept is a place to hide out…and if there’s some hot, no-strings sex involved, why the heck not?
But Ben soon discovers that one week with his sassy, bed-hopping waitress is definitely not enough. He wants more. A lot more.
Now he needs to convince relationship-averse Maggie that a bad boy might be oh so good for her—and the best thing that’s ever happened to both of them.
* Previously published in 2008, Bad Apple (formerly Midnight Encounters) features almost entirely new content, including a point-of-view switch. Enjoy this new version of an old favorite!
I don’t know why I didn’t read this book when it was first published in 2008 as ‘Midnight Encounters’, but I am guessing it has to do with my ever-growing TBR list. That and the fact that my only free time to read in 2008, was when I went to the bathroom 😛
Anyways, I am glad I got to read it now, with all the new content.
This was definitely one of those “feel good” reads and I really needed one at the moment, so lucky me 😛 I had plenty of “laugh out loud” moments, that’s for sure.
Maggie and Ben were absolutely great together, and I am glad to say that I liked both of them very much. Maggie especially was a very refreshing heroine in my opinion.
If you’re in the mood for a sweet but funny and light romance, then you should definitely give this one a go.
