Bad Apple by Elle Kennedy
Genres: Adult, Contemporary, Romance
Format: kindle book
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!
Another fun read from Elle Kennedy. I’m not sure how she does it but Ms. Kennedy always finds a way to build a story that lures you in and to create characters who you want to have as friends in your real life. Maggie and Ben’s story started with a witty meet-cute and only got more entertaining from there. These two had no interest in a relationship but sometimes the heart wants what it wants and it’s not afraid to face the obstacles necessary to get it.
Maggie and Ben can’t be more different but that only adds to the charm of this story. Ben, a famous actor, needs to get out of the limelight but somehow keeps getting himself in trouble and Maggie, a very busy student and waitress, has no time for relationships yet is undeniably drawn to Ben. The push and pull that these two deal with as they decide the best road for them had me glued to the pages. These two have great chemistry and fantastic banter…and the romance was delicious!
If you’re looking for a light, fun read with characters you’ll love and a very entertaining storyline, then this is the book for you. As with all of this author’s books, the writing is great and you’ll be lost in the story before you know it. If you haven’t read an Elle Kennedy book, this might be a great place to start…but, then again, any one of her books is a great place to start!
