My Thoughts
This was a tough one. I had to read it, BUT, I had not liked what I learned of this new heroine in book 1 or book 2. See Annie created an app where men are rated. Sure, I like the idea, but this is the internet. People are trolls. So both heroes in book 1 and 2 got their lives ruined. One had only good reviews, but still got a shitstorm. And the first had only bad reviews, but not his fault either. 
After those I had to read her story, what made her do it!

Annie had a boyfriend. They broke up. She created this app. I still do not agree with her choices, se saw their lives get ruined! But, her heart was in a good place and the app did do good things too. 
Does she have a reason to be angry at her ex, well yes, but she was in fault too. A relationship goes both ways.

Joe was a great guy. He tried to make his parents proud (they were frankly asshats), and yes he did make a mistake. He should not have taken it that hard.

People make mistakes. These two should have talked and done a long distance until things calmed down. But they were asshats. So both are at fault, and well I forgive Joe cos he is such a sweetie.

Lots of character talk ;) On to the story. They meet again, obvi sparks fly. Someone wants to take down her app and things happen.

I enjoyed the story.

I liked her different voices and accents. She made Annie sound vulnerable in a  great way

He's the bad bachelor who inspired it all....
Annie Maxwell had her whole life figured out...until her fiance left her when his career took off. If that wasn't bad enough, every society blog posted pictures of him escorting a woman wearing her engagement ring. To help the women of New York avoid guys like her ex, Annie created the Bad Bachelors app. But try as she might, Annie just can't forget him....
For bank executive Joe Preston, his greatest mistake was leaving the love of his life when she needed him most. Now, all he wants is to make things right - and she won't have him. But when Annie's safety is threatened by a hacker determined to bring down her app, Joe is the only one to whom she can turn. He'll have to lay himself on the line to prove to Annie that he's a changed man. But will their hard-won bond survive the revelation that Annie is the one pulling the strings behind Bad Bachelors?  


  1. I would be curious to try too

  2. Sounds like some mistakes are made even if by accident.

  3. oh very timely with the app and stuff and you've got me interested!!!

  4. I haven't tried this author but it sounds like a decent read. It does take two people to keep a relationship together.

    1. You are right. One can not call all the shots

  5. So are you good with her after not loving her?

  6. Sometimes they can be lovable even if they're occasionally asshats. :)

  7. Sounds like it was good in spite of the app, I really dislike those rate them kind of things. Ah if they talked what would the author do!!!!

  8. Yeah, that app is so totally getting abused by trolls, lol.

    1. One would think she should have seen it coming

  9. I don't think ruining someone's life on social media over a bad breakup is a fair punishment. :/

    1. Well, she did not ruin anyone's life. THe people using the app ruined lives when they rated dates

  10. Yeah... I've seen this series and I don't think I could do it.
    But I do think its neat that the author wrote her in a way that you could get past her mistakes and his. That's good writing for sure and neat the the narrator brought out a sympathetic feeling of vulnerability.

    1. I was not sure how she could cos dang, I did not like ANnie. I have been so mad at her

  11. He can be a bad influence on me ;)
