Bad Apple - Elle Kennedy | Book Review

I have read quite a few Elle Kennedy books in the past, the Off Campus series is one of my favourite things I have read this year so I was excited to read Bad Apple. I am the biggest romance book fan, I fly through them and this book didn't disappoint. 
Bad Apple - Elle Kennedy | Book Review

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.

My Review

If you are looking for a quick steamy read, this is the book for you! This book was originally published back in 2008 under the name Midnight Encounters but it has been completely reworked with almost entirely new content. This book follows Ben and Maggie. Ben is a celebrity who is looking to lay low and Maggie is an ordinary working hard girl, she's very relatable, who accidentally ends up in a hotel room with Ben and She doesn't realise it's him and the story starts from there! 

Even though this book is super steamy, it has some funny and witty moments which I loved and it's also fun and flirty, everything I look for in a summer read! I really liked almost all of the characters in this book, Ben's mum makes a brief appearance and I really enjoyed her. Ben and Maggie are one of my new favourite book couples, I wish the book was longer as I didn't want their story to end. Even though this is mainly a fun and steamy read, it does have a little dept to it when it comes to Maggie. 

I really like Elle Kennedy's writing style, it's addictive! I read this book in one sitting and I will definitely read it again. Ben receives a massive amount of inheritance and you don't know why he has the money and I was not expecting the reasoning for it to be why he got it. I loved what he ended up doing with the money too. I really liked Ben and Maggie's relationship and one of my favourite parts of the book is when he takes her away for a few days on vacation. 

Bad Apple by Elle Kennedy is out tomorrow (13th of August 2019) - HERE
