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.

If you’re looking for a quick and sexy read, then Bad Apple is the book for you.
Bad Apple follows the story of Ben and Maggie. Ben is tired of living in the limelight and misses his privacy. After a scandal causes utter chaos in his life, he decides that now is the best time to take a break. All he wants is to forget for one moment that he’s famous. But, what Ben didn’t plan on was Maggie. Maggie is like a breath of fresh air. They meet in the most unlikely of situations and Ben is totally stunned that Maggie has no clue who he is. Fate keeps bringing these two opposites back together and the tension between the two of them burns brighter than ever. Will Ben be able to leave the limelight behind? Will Maggie take a chance on commitment? There is only one way to find out….
Overall, I thought this book was a fun read. Bad Apple is a book that you can easily read in just a single sitting. The characters are a lot of fun and easy to get lost in. I thought Ben and Maggie had terrific chemistry and I just loved their unconventional, first encounter. If you’re looking for a quick, sexy read that is mostly light on the drama and high on the sexy good times, then look no further, Bad Apple is just the book you’ve been looking for.
