The Bad Bachelor app strikes again! With the second book in the series, we meet a guy who's getting raving reviews about the size of his ... package! He's finding it hard to conduct business and get any respect in the industry when he's the talk of the town. He meets Remi by happenstance, but the second he sees her dance, he sees the potential of a star and will stop at nothing to get her to agree to do his show. Along the way they start to fall for each other though ... and she doesn't have a great history of mixing business with pleasure! Wes Evans has spent his life living in the shadow of his Broadway royal parents. He is finally taking a chance on himself and stepping out to produce a production of his very own, and wants to make sure it's a success. When he sees a dancer performing off the cuff, he realizes she would be perfect for the lead! Remi Drysdale has been in New York for a few years now, but after the debacle she made of her life back in Australia, she hasn't trusted herself to shine as a ballerina here. When Wes approaches her about an audition for his show, she's torn. She wants to shine on stage again ... but she's also attracted to him, and if that dating app scandal has any truth to it, she could have an amazing time with him! ... will she decide to take a chance at getting her career back one step at a time?

He's a bad boy full of good ideas. She's a good girl that's had a string of bad luck. In a world where reputation is everything, Wes and Remi are about to make some noise in the most delightful of ways. Bad Reputation is deceiving. London grabs attention with a little naughty in the title, but it's the heart that resides inside that is the star of the show. Despite the odds, Remi and Wes refused to quit dreaming and chose to reach for the stars. Resistance is futile when it comes to matters of the heart.

In an effort to break away from his well known parents, Wes Evans puts into motion an out of the ordinary idea. Wes and his friend have come up with an Off-Broadway production that involves the crowd. It's lively, new age, AND on a very limited budget. Wes has managed to convince dancers of varying abilities to dance in his production, but he has yet to cast the lead.... Remi, former ballet dancer, teaches various dance classes at her friends studios. While she enjoys teaching, her real dream is to become a premier ballerina with a major dance company. Remi left Australia and moved to NYC with high hopes. After two disasterous auditions, self-doubt, and a past she can't seem to put behind her Remi decides to "take a break". Hence, teaching dance. It's during one of her parent-child dance classes that she first meets Wes. Wes knows he's found his lead when he returns to the studio to find Remi dancing before class. When Wes offers Remi the lead, she thinks he's joking. After promising to keep things professional, Remi accepts. Between Wes' mom's "sabotage", reviews on the Bad Bachelor's app, funding issues, Remi's self-doubt, and a jealous ballerina, the Off-Broadway production seems doomed to fail. This novel is a truly enjoyable read. I LOVED Remi's witty banter! The chemistry between Wes and Remi was off the charts. I also liked the twist of having good reviews work against you! Wes' journey to become someone not tied to his family's name or fortune was admirable. I read a gifted copy and all opinions stated are my own.

Sultry, emotive, and intriguing! Bad Reputation is a humorous, alluring tale that combines the hardworking, handsome, well-hung, Wes with the beautiful, wary, dancer extraordinaire, Remi in a push-pull storyline filled with friendship, gossip, romance, seduction, jealousy, family drama, smoking tension, racy banter, witty dialogue, and sizzling chemistry. The writing is spicy and fun. The supporting characters are gregarious, amusing, and likable. And the plot is a charming and engaging ride as it takes you from the enjoyment and challenges of making a Broadway show to the moments, mishaps, and heart breaks of the past to a heartwarming ending that leaves you with a smile. Bad Reputation is another fantastic addition to the Bad Bachelor series, and I can’t wait to read about whose life the Bad Bachelor app turns upside down next.

Book two in this series and wowza! This one just knocked my socks off. I absolutely loved this story. It's intense, the characters are so well written and you get pulled into the story from the very first page. Romance abounds, the angst is low-medium, the steam is smoking hot and the storyline is so very real you feel like you're in the front row watching this drama unfold. And unfold it does. The series revolves around a dating app called Bad Bachelors, introduced in Book one. This story happens to target Wes who is a wealthy well known man and now known for his sizable physical attributes thanks to a photo of him with someone of vacation. Thus the topic of Wes begins on Bad Bachelors. Wes has just broken away form his well known family in the ballet/dance world to produce his own show with a friend who will choreograph the show. It's a great idea he has but still hasn't found his lead yet. Enter Remi, an Aussie now living in NYC and teaching Barre classes after leaving Australia and being badly burned in a relationship and her professional career as a ballerina shot to hell. She's teaching a mother-daughter class when Wes brings his niece in because his sister can't make it and the niece is adamant about going. Wes is taken with Remi, asks her out, she refuses. When he returns the next day he sees her dancing and knows he's found his lead. But will she accept? Will she even talk to him? We refuses again an offer for dinner. Her fears keep her safe. Stepping out and dancing again put her at risk. Meanwhile Wes is dealing with the Bad Bachelor nonsense, his family drama and trying to sway Remi into his show. When he does the story really takes off. Remi relies a lot on her two friends Darcy and Annie, it's the three of them. The story takes some very sharp twists and turns and holy crap moments. The drama is spellbinding, a perfect balance to keep you flipping those pages. Cursing one minute and smiling the next. The heat is perfect, Wes and Remi are two great well written characters and very likable. My own two cents is that Annie is a real botch. My final take, read the book. It's a great story, not necessary to read book one, but you might want to anyway. Great story and deserves 5 stars. Stellar read Stefanie! *arc from NetGalley and publisher for an honest review*

Rcvd an ARC at no cost to author..(netgalley) Yes this book was good! Thanks Stefanie this goes on the list of books I enjoy that you write. This book was the second in the series and even though it is not needed to read this one I always advise my readers that they should read to get more out of the story line. So we have Wes who's reputation is well bad as the title explains he is a bachelor that got the misfortune of being listed as a "Bad Bachelor" on an app that gets to trash bachelors, and he is pretty popular in that app. He needs a dancer for one of his shows and ends up seeing Remi who is his niece's ballet teacher and he knew he found the perfect one. Remi had left dancing in shows after leaving the company she worked for after having a broken heart. She does end up giving this a chance, and they not only work together but give dating a chance, wish we could have left it at that but we know we can't because problems due arise in multiple fashions but truly enjoyable.. Enjoy!

This is the second in Stefanie London’s Bad Bachelor series. Bad Bachelor is a website that allows the women of Manhattan to review their dates like they would a restaurant on Yelp. The books center around three friends, Darcy, Remi and Annie. Book one was Darcy and Reeds story. This book tells Remi and Wes’s story. Remi was on her way to success as a ballerina in her native Australia, when a personal/professional issue decimated her career. She is now in New York City teaching Barre classes, and has given up on her dream. Wes is trying to break away from his family ballet school and mount an off Broadway show. He meets Remi while taking his niece to dance class and realizes Remi is who he needs to star in his show. They agree to keep things professional, but that doesn’t last long. While Wes is reviewed on the Bad Bachelor website, it’s not because he is a bad guy, it’s because of his impressive physical asset. Like in book one, the website threatens the man’s career and his relationship. I loved this book, the characters were well written and the story was engaging.. I was given an ARC of this book for my honest review.

A great read as the Bad Bachelor app wreaks havoc on another unsuspecting bachelor. This time the target seems to be Wes "the anaconda" Evans. Working hard to get his new broadway show off the ground Wes has no time to worry about the silly app. Finding the perfect ballerina for his show is his latest objective. When he sees Remi Drysdale in a kid's ballet class he knows his search is over. Now to convince her to give the show and possibly him a chance. Then those reviews cost him a show backer and his worries start all over again. Great read and one I highly recommend.

Loved this book! I loved the first book in the series (Bad Bachelor), and found this to be just as good. The series focuses on an app called Bad Bachelor that has a negative impact on a bachelor in NYC. In this novel, Remi is a (somewhat) washed up ballerina that now teaches children ballet. When Wes brings his niece to one of her classes, he is entranced by Remi and convinces her to audition for him. Before long, they are both working together and dating, but then the rumors start, with the help of the Bad Bachelor app. I found myself drawn in by Wes and Remi's story and was rooting for them to get their HEA ending. The author had a delightful was of telling their story and I'm already looking forward to the next book in the series. While part of a series, this is a stand alone novel, however, it's so good that you really owe it to yourself to read them all. The author is on my must read authors' list.
