Bad Apple

Book 3 in the Perfectly Wicked series.

Katarina Masters is a woman who has been kept away in a dungeon for the last six years. Coming back out of the dungeon she has realized nobody wants to hire an ex-convict. With no other choice left she gets a job in a Reality TV Show. Not her usual style but it's better than going back to the dungeon. The TV show is not your usual kind for she has to overcome challenges, please the world and yes also please the producer. Her producer has made her wonder why he hides behind the cameras and why she constantly fantasizes about being with him. Obviously time in the dungeon has made her mind crazy for she is attracted to a womanizer.

Serge is a man of many talents and yes he is a womanizer. The problem is that lately none of the women he has been with have been able to get him up. Well, not true there is one woman but every time he tries to make a move she gives him a bitchy attitude. Serge knows that Katarina is not like his other women for even though she used to be an evil queen he is falling into her charms. Oh yes, she has charms and Serge knows that she wants him. When he finally does get a chance it scares him. He has finally found the woman of his dreams. Even though they have a great attraction towards one another he can't help but wonder if her real evilness will arise again. Can he make Kat see they were meant to be together? Will his Reality TV show be a hit?

My only problem with this book was that it jumped from each scene too fast. One minute they're fighting in his office then the next they're in a limo satisfying their needs making this reviewer wonder how they got in the limo first place. Yes there definitely is heat between them these two, but too much talking between them about the show and Kat's past in the dungeon. For a short story it's great but jumped through each scene like the author wanted to end it right away. To best grasp this book you should read it as part of the series and not independently.

Book Blurb for Bad Apple

Book 3 in the Perfectly Wicked series.

Some women are misunderstood, others are a misdemeanor waiting to happen…

Katarina was a very bad girl, but she spent five years in the dungeon paying for her crimes and made a vow to leave her wicked ways behind her. She's praying a makeover and a stint on Kingdom City's newest reality show, Real-Life Ways to Catch a King, will help her get back on her feet. Unfortunately the show's producer, notorious bad boy Serge, is making it hard for her to resist giving in to her naughtier nature…

Serge is looking to turn his life around. He wants a wife and a family and a place in respectable society. Taking up with a former wicked queen with a penchant for poison apples isn't on his agenda. But Kat quickly proves to be irresistible, and when a mutual affection for public passion turns into something more, he has to make a decision. Break the heart of the only woman he's ever loved or risk forever being known as a "bad apple".
