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!

Loved this one!
If you love Elle Kennedy..
DO NOT BUY THIS BOOK! It is clearly one of her first, and it is terrible. The characters are flat and, frankly, dumb - which is not typical of this author. I have read most of her books and this one is just not up to par with the others (unless you like the Out of Uniform series, it’s similar to those...which I also think are awful). I really dislike when a character says one thing and then thinks and acts differently. Maggie spent the entire book saying NO to Ben, then slept with him on every other page. I also hate alpha-hole, rich dudes with little substance, which is Ben. No witty dialogue. No smart, in charge heroine. No smart, EQUALLY in charge hero. I’d save my money on this reboot for one of the new Briar U books coming up.
To die for story with awesome characters!
