Everybody’s talking about the hot new app reviewing New York’s most eligible bachelors. But why focus on prince charming when you can read the latest dirt on the lowest-ranked “Bad Bachelors”—NYC’s most notorious bad boys.
If one more person mentions Bad Bachelors to Reed McMahon, someone’s gonna get hurt. A PR whiz, Reed is known as an ‘image fixer’ but his womanizing ways have caught up with him. What he needs is a PR miracle of his own.
When Reed strolls into Darcy Greer’s workplace offering to help save the struggling library, she isn’t buying it. The prickly Brooklynite knows Reed is exactly the kind of guy she should avoid. But the library does need his help. As she reluctantly works with Reed, she realizes there’s more to a man than his reputation. Maybe, just maybe, Bad Bachelor #1 is THE one for her.
Reed McMahon is a PR genius but he finds he needs a PR genius of his own when he becomes the star of the a new app called Bad bachelors. Serial daters beware. Darcy Greer has been burned by love and left hurt and embarrassed and with not so great relationship with her mother she's not in the market to trust. Reed shows up at her library, where she works to help with a fundraiser and that's when things get interesting. This is a new author for me. I loved the main characters. Reed is not just a glossy shiny package. The author shows us the real Reed slowly with the help of the heroine in this story. In turn Reed helps Darcy see who she really is. She's spent years hiding herself and Reed has spent years doing almost the same. Watching these two figure themselves out was a sometimes a interesting and wild ride. I felt bad for Reed because he really gets raked over the coals with the Bad Bachelor app. There is a HEA for the mail couple in the series though. I don't really like how it wrapped up who was behind the app and maybe that might be resolved more in the next book in the series. It felt like that character was kind of cruel considering who it ended up being. Of course because there is no real insight as to why that characters did what they did it's hard to tell the why. Cryptic yes but i don't want to give away to much. Looking forward to seeing what plays out in the next book.
