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!

Swoonworthy

Love it, low angst, super sweet, yet full of heat. Narration was great too. If you're looking for a lighthearted listen then this book is for you. Highly recommend

Quick Low Angst Listen

The narrators Adrienne West & Brock Monroe did a good job. Bad Apple was a quick low angst listen with enjoyable characters.

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.

Sweet listen...

Low if any angst. A sweet listen with a strong heroine and a sweet hero.

Female narrator to slow

The story was okay. The male narrator did a good job however, the female narrator was very slow, I had to speed her up which in turn speeds up the male narrator to fast. Really frustrating.

Lame

I really struggled to finish this. It was full of cliches and the heroine was so annoying. I can't count the times I was rolling my eyes.

“Boring”

A few chapters in and I’m bored to death. The opening was slow and monotonous. I hung in there for quite a few chapters to see if it climaxed. Nope! It may have been a good book if it had more variances in the storyline.

An already-seen recipe but fun

When I tried to explain the plot of this story to one of my friend, the result has been that the story was awfully similar to the "normal girl meets super rich and successful dude".
Well, don't get me wrong, it's super fun but you tend to be able to see what's going to happen before it does happen.

I did like the characters that are very lovable. The lady wants to work, the man wants to sleep. I agree with that. However, the part that his life style and popularity hits the everyday life of the MC, I can't prevent myself from thinking that this part is forced of the "male that has money and will control the girl".

Overall, a nice little story that I would recommend just for the dynamism between the characters.

AMAZING

What an amazing book! This had literal tears in my eyes, as well as laughs coming out of me. This was definitely an emotional rollercoaster with both the heartache and the love felt throughout this whole thing. I listened to this as an audiobook and loved both narrators who spoke in this. It definitely added more emotion to the storyline. Maggie is an amazing female protagonist who would definitely inspire others with both her work ethic and her passion. I have loved reading other books by Elle Kennedy and this is a great example of why. I definitely don't regret reading this book and would recommend it to those that love this genre. I loved listening to this book!
