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

It's the second time I read Stefanie London. I read the first book of the series and I liked her ideas, her writing style and the character of Remi.

In her book, Remi is really what's interested me the most. I like to see her deal with her struggles, her relationship with her parents, with her friends (we don't see a lot of Darcy and Annie but there is a lot going on and I like how Remi dealt with her feelings)

The setting is a dance show with ballet and it's not usually my cup of tea but I like t

A romantic story with a better narrator for the audiobook. I enjoyed the little drama towards the end and wes winning her back.

Have you heard of the Bad Bachelor app ? It's the new trend that allow women to rate their dates. But before we talk about it, let me tell you about the characters. Remi Drysdale is a former ballerina who give dance lessons at a studio. The Aussie went to New York to leave behind a broken heart and the ballet industry that squashed her dreams and hopes before it could begin. Wes Evans (love that name!) was a guest judge on Dance Idol, but being dubbed the Anaconda (yeah, it's what you think ;

Bad Reputation is the second book in the Bad Bachelors series, which revolves around a dating review app a la the former I recommend reading these books in order so you have the backstory on the app, its creator, and the circle of female friends serving as our heroines. Note: This review may contains spoilers for the first book, Bad Bachelor, so proceed at your own risk.

Our hero is Wes Evans, dubbed The Anaconda on the Bad Bachelors app. Unlike our first hero, Reed McMahon,

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 ...more

Well, that was really great. Great characters, great story, great chemistry. I just enjoyed every second of it. London is new to me, but I am now going to download the fist book in this series, so I can catch up, and be prepared for Annie's story.

I loved so much of this book! However, I HATE the actual app that the whole series is based upon and find it appalling - the fact that it continues existing despite the damage it does just upsets me :-(

MS London has such a fabulous voice when it comes to writing stories that connect with readers, she brings her characters to life, makes them friends, you feel their emotions, their pain and their happiness and in this second instalment in the Bad Bachelors series we get to see Remi meet the man that will sweep her off her feet in a story of dance and love, make yourself comfortable for this one.

Oh man, I just loved this book. Can I simply leave my review at that? Bad Bachelor was such a pleasant surprise for me earlier this year. I thought it would be more of a romantic comedy, but it surprised me by bringing forward not only an entertaining romance but also thought-provoking discussions about the state of social media. Finding out that Bad Reputation was set in the theater/ballet world just about sealed the deal for me and I was giddy with excitement. This book delivered on every

This is the second book in the series - and I would recommend that you read book 1 first as there are strong links, but it probably isn't essential. Stefanie London has done a good job of catching the reader up on the basics.

Wes has broken away from his family, wanting to be successful in his own right. He keeps coming across hurdles, but a chance meeting with Remi at his niece's ballet class at least gives him a new lea

I received a free copy of this book to read and review for Wicked Reads.

A cute fun read with all the angsty drama of the first book.

Remi came to New York City after sabotaging her ballet career in Melbourne. After a couple of bad auditions, she decides she's not good enough to dance professionally so she becomes a ballet teacher. A chance meeting with Wes Evans, the son of ballet royalty, gives her a chance at something she thought she'd never get: a real chance to dance in an acclaimed ballet

4.5***** This book was recommend to me and I'm so glad I read It because it was so enjoyable. Two people struggling with their own demons, their own secrets, can they work through them and do what's right for each of them. This delved into the life of an ex ballet dancer Remi who has been through some tough times and is trying to find out where she is going. Along comes Wes who is trying to prove he can achieve his dream without his families support. Throw in some underhanded tactics from others ...more

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 t ...more

The concept/idea was nice. I really liked the setting of the dancing/Broadway world, but the entire story was dragged out. The slow-burn and doubts were to slow and annoying at several occasions.

Bad Reputation is the second book in the Bad Bachelors series by Stefanie London. The Bad Bachelors app is at it again. It has a way of giving women a car fax on men before dating them. This book has chemistry, Jealousy, and Sinful Lust. You will love this story of an amazing ballerina and the prince of broadway royalty.

Omg, this Bad Bachelor app is so evil. If you read book 1 then you know. It ruined someone's life. Here the reviews are positive, but if you are trying to put on a show that might fail, then maybe you do not want the press to discuss the size of your private parts instead of your show.

In book 1 we learned who made the app. In this one I got even madder at that person. I can not forgive that person. Enough is enough.

But yes to the book. Wes has a big *beeeep*. Or so the reviews say. He is a good

After enjoying Book 1, I really expected to enjoy this book just as much. But unfortunately, this was just an okay read for me. I actually listened to the audiobook for this one and it made the middle of the book seem to drag on even more, so that didn't help, I couldn't exactly skim through parts quickly then.

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.

I loved this second book in Stefanie London’s series Bad Bachelors. This book continues to tell the story of what can go wrong when people review you online using the Bad Bachelors review site. It is an interesting take on the dating scene and the types of reviews women will post. If you haven’t read the first book in the series, don’t worry! You can pick this one up and it does stand on its own. The characters and their backgrounds are so unique in this book.

The Bad Bachelors app strikes again but this time it is after Wes Evans. He was known for his family connections in the ballet world but now he is known by the reviews being left on the app. Wes thinks if he forgets about them then they will not matter. After all they are not bad reviews, they just talk about his sex life.

The Bad Bachelor app has struck once again, and this time it may cost one good man not only his Broadway show’s backing but the love of his life as well.

I had fun with Wes and Remi’s romance. It’s fun and flirty with some major sass, banter and steam added in for good measure. Wes wasn’t looking for romance as he watched Remi dance at the dance studio, he was looking for that unknown, ready to burst into a star level dancer… he just didn’t expect to discover her in a

I adored this book. Fair warning - it does get fairly technical into ballet and dance jargon. I loved every second of it but if you don't like reading about tendus and turnout, well, you've been warned. I love that Stefanie clearly either is/was a dancer, is close with dancers, or REALLY did her research. (Ballet dancer feet are NOT pretty feet...) This book reminded me a lot of the movie Center Stage (in a good way), what with the ballerina with an inner fire being thrust into

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 g ...more

I’m really enjoying the Bad Bachelors Series and this book is as good if not better than the first in the series, this time it’s Wes Evans being targeted by the notorious Bad Bachelor App they have dubbed him “The Anoconda” and it’s really messing up with the backing he is trying to get for his new show.

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.

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 hel ...more
