Publisher's Summary

A flirty stand-alone novel* from New York Times and international best-selling 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!

Good Story, not the best reading

I thought the story was decent. Enough to pull you in, not too much drama. Would have liked a little bit more details in the story line.

The voices by the readers are quite hard to picture to the characters which let's it down.

Female Narrator = Speed Up!!

I have a hard time not finishing books, but this one gave me a run for my money. The story was pure fantasy fluff. It tried to have depth but it was so unrealistic, it just couldn’t. If you know you’re fluff, own it.

The female narrator was unbearable to listen to. If you speed up her chapters to 1.5x, it makes it tolerable. She just reads everything soooooo slooooooow! The male narrator was great! It was a pain to go into the app and alter the read speed for every chapter.

Overall, it was worth a one time listen but never again. I will also be avoiding stories read by the female narrator.

Not for Me

I have read Elle Kennedy before and find her stories to be okay. I don’t regret the read but I’m not wow’d. This is another okay for me. But what made the story less enjoyable were the voice actors. I did not like either of them nor did I like the character voices they gave. I am a big fan of Jill Redfield if that helps with understanding the kind of voice I like when hearing a story.
