I never read the previously released version ‘Midnight Encounters’ so this was a new read for me. Once I started reading, I was hooked and then puff it was the end but this is really not a surprise for me with Elle Kennedy books.
Maggie Reilly is a strong, goal oriented, sassy and beautiful woman. She has an extremely busy schedule and between her waitressing job, college classes and volunteer work, she doesn’t have anytime for fun. Only time she enjoys herself is when her two-times a year hookup Tony, who is a travel writer, visits New York. On one of the two days she will get lucky, thanks to a storm, delayed flight and miscommunication, she finds herself in bed with Hollywood’s bad boy actor Ben Barrett. Behind the bad boy image, Ben is really sweet, thoughtful, charming and cocky as hell 🙂 Ben’s life is in chaos with a scandal and it becomes impossible to hide from paparazzi. During his hideout attempt from paparazzi, a fiery redhead, who kisses the hell out of him, invades his room. After an embarrassing realization and rushed out exit from the hotel room, the only thing Ben has is her offer for free drinks and a piece of clothing she left behind. When Ben realizes, she has no idea who he is and she is acting like he is a regular person, he comes up with an idea. He tries to convince Maggie to let him crash at her place for a week in exchange for him being her boy toy. Even though, Maggie is reluctant to let Ben crash at her place for a week, his tenacious attitude and hard to resist charm wins her over. It was really cute to watch Ben keep pushing Maggie out of her comfort zone and trying to make her realize it is ok to take a break and do something for herself. It was really sweet to see how their no-strings hookup evolves and make two anti-relationship people to crave for love and relationship. But in the end it will all come down to Maggie and the choice she will make, love or career…
‘Bad Apple’ was a sweet, inspiring and heartwarming story, you will devour. If you are looking for a fast, fun read this book is just for you.
