Never trust a man who gets paid to take off his clothes for a living and then uses it as a pick-up line to get girls in bed with him.

That should’ve been enough for me to call in sick that day.

I’ve worked with male cover models like him before and they’re all the same—smooth-talking, sexy as sin, egotistical know-it-alls who think they’re God’s gift to women—all traits I k

****AVAILABLE NOW - FULL REVIEW ****

You know why I love Kennedy Fox’s Bedtime series so much, because they are fun. Just good romantic fun. The banter, the chemistry, and the romance are just entertaining. Readers get all of it in a read in one sitting love story.

Maverick is just pure perfection. Hot cover model with charm equals swoony goodness. He had just the right amount of heart and charm to have me feeling all gooey inside. It isn’t hard to see why the heroine would fall in love with his p

“I could love her if she’d let me. If she’d tear down her walls and let me inside, I’d give her everything.”

Falling for the Playboy by Kennedy Fox is all about pushing buttons and boundaries, facing fears, and falling head over heals in love when you’re trying so hard not to. It’s absolutely hilarious, ridiculously steamy, and oh so original! I had a blast devouring this love story from beginning to end! Maverick and Olivia were great characters with an insane enemies-to-lovers vibe. Their che

NO SPOILERS!

Falling for the Playboy was a quick, fun, light read that was full of heart, heat, and humor. Kennedy Fox is an amazing author duo, and I loved their writing style and the storyline and characters they created. The Bedtime Reads series has been excellent so far, and I can't wait to read the final standalone, Falling for the Cowboy!

The storyline was wonderful. Kennedy Fox did a fantastic job with the plot, and I loved the enemies-to-lovers aspect they incorporated. The push and pull b

Olivia needs to grow a spine

The book for the most part was ok. I liked the beginning of the book better, but the ending got boring. Olivia was basically an indentured slave to her writer boss. I couldn't believe how much she was told to do. I'm not sure how much she was paid, but it is not enough. I thought Olivia's character needed to stand up for herself, even at the end she didn't do it, but instead Maverick had to do it for her. And Maverick. The name is terrible and so cliche - really?

Getting your heart broken is one thing, but breaking someone else’s heart is torture.

A good read. Olivia is uptight, and Maverick is a playboy. Maybe. Or maybe they are those things and so much more. These two take a road trip to follow an author they both work for. Olivia as the PA and Maverick as the exclusive cover model for the authors series. Despite them being complete opposites, seemingly not getting along, and their bosses strict no fraternizing between employees rule... they can’t seem

Funny, flirty and really a perfect curl up on the couch type of read.

I forgot how much I enjoy this writing duo. It's been a while since I have had the opportunity to grab one of them and I am super pleased I was able to read this one.

Olivia has a classic case of works too hard and too much. She loves her job but working for the devil isn't easy. But armed with her "bible" and notebooks she makes miracles happen. Everything runs on time, every detail is planned seamlessly and

Falling for the Playboy, a new addiction to the Bedtime Reads collection, is a winner! This romance is filled with Kennedy Fox’s signature witty banters and wonderful protagonists.

Olivia and Maverick are so sweet and funny to watch. I found myself smiling through their absurd, yet comic conversations with underlying tones of attraction. They’re both so different, the male model with a cocky attitude and the workaholic obsessed with her schedule, bu

Falling For The Playboy is an adorable read that had me snickering and almost wondering to myself if this was possibly loosely based on a real story.

I mean it could happen. Authors PA meets Authors cover model, both are single....

Funnily enough I was just at an author signing and so this book was just perfect and had my imagination running wild. Olivia was hard working and tried to be by the book as much as possible. She was all business and let’s just say that the Author she works for well she

Falling for the playboy was such a fun read!

Maverick and Olivia are like oil and water at first.

They just don’t mix!

Maverick is flirtatious, charmingly arrogant and seems to take life in stride while Olivia is uptight and has every moment of her day planned and on a strict schedule.

They both seem to enjoy pushing each other’s buttons and the result is an entertaining read complete with witty laugh out loud banter, and a palpable sexual tension that will leave you anxious

I love any book that Kennedy Fox comes out with. She never disappoints. Such phenomenal work.

Maverick and Olivia were so adorable. I love how they were the polar opposite of each other because it brought out the best in each other. I love their story because it shows that you have to stop living for others and live for yourself, enjoy life.

Omg I cannot stand Rachel. LOL I wanted to slap her around a few times wake her up tell her to treat people better.

Divertido, sexy y romántico, una lectura ligera y amena, de verdad que la serie está muy bien titulada. Aunque al inicio lo tensa que estaba la protagonista hizo que me estresara ¡Lo bueno que eso cambió!

What ISN’T there to say about yet ANOTHER KF read?! I loved it IMMENSELY! The characters, the story line and the plot was probably one of my most favs EVER! And I think that’s what really made this book SO incredibly relatable! A look into the author life is always fun to hear, watch, listen, and READ about for me. So this story line was not only right up my alley but just made me SO giddy and happy as I read!

The point of a Kennedy Fox Bedtime Read holds true! And I love it because I’m not a fa

Enemies to lovers + roadtrip? Doesn't it just sound so freaking fun? You better believe it was! And not just because of the banter and insane chemistry between Maverick and Olivia but also because I got to live through all the ins and outs of an author's life and also what it's like to be at an actual book signing I see everyone going to all the time.

I loved those parts, even though Rachel was a real asshole. Seriously, she was the definition of a rude hell-boss. Poor Olivi

I am loving this writing duo. Kennedy Fox is becoming a favorite read for me. I am so happy I took the chance and picked up this series.

Falling For the Playboy is an entertaining read that I would consider a romantic comedy but also has the feels you get from an emotional read. I was laughing at the banter between Olivia and Maverick….talk about opposites attract. But I was also drawn to them

Falling for the Playboy is the second book in Bedtime Reads by Kennedy Fox - all these books can be read as standalones and are very quick reads.

As with the first book, this was book was just ok for me - right down the middle. There were parts, I really enjoyed and other parts that I did not care for. I felt certain areas needed fleshed out more to possibly explain dynamics between certain characters. Let me explain myself.

I really enjoyed the idea behind this plot - cover book model and author

Falling For The Playboy is the second book in Kennedy Fox's Bedtime Reads series. This novel takes us on a roadtrip with a cover model named Maverick and Olivia who also happens to be an author's personal assistant.

Throughout this journey we see Olivia as a control freak, planner and everything. But when Maverick steps onto the scene he slowly shows her that life isn't all about planners and schedules. In order to truly admire the beauty of life, you sometimes have to live life on the edge. I lo

Delightful, lighthearted and fun! This is a great book to read when you’re in a crappy mood because it’s guaranteed to make your day brighter. It’s got such a positive vibe!

Olivia works for Rachel Meadows, a #1 New York Times bestselling author of romance books (sound familiar?). She’s her assistant but more accurately, she manages her boss’s entire life, including her awful high-maintenance yappy poodle called Angel and going so far as fetching her protein shakes. As part of her duties, she’s a

Kennedy Fox is back with the second book in their Bedtime Reads series. It’s been so long since they released book one that I’d forgotten that Olivia was the main heroines assistant in the first book. The minute I realized it I was excited bc I wanted her story!

Falling for the Playboy was a sweet and sexy quick read. Enemies to lovers while on a road trip are two of my favorite themes and Kennedy Fox put the both of them together perfectly in this book.

Maverick and Olivia are polar opposites. They seem to have nothing in common except for the fact that they’re working for Rachel a romance author who demands that nothing romantic occurs between them (insert all of the angst here).

Maverick is a playboy, charming and arrogant while Olivia is a control fre

The dream job with a boss who sometimes is hell. Olivia works as the personal assistant to a great author, one of the best seller on the New York Times list. But working for Rachel Meadows is not always easy.

Maverick is a model and has signed an exclusive contract to be the cover of a great author's book. But Rachel Meadows has the patience of a rabid bengal tiger. Nothing he can not handle during the tour of

Olivia is married to her job, working sixty or more hours a week when her boss, best selling novelist Rachel needs her. Even though her boss can be overbearing and overcontrolling at times, she really loves her job. Until Maverick shows up. Maverick is the cover model on all of Rachel's books, and is traveling with them to Rachel's book signing events for two weeks. Except he doesn't fly. So Olivia has to babysit and road trip with Maverick. She knows his type, arrogant, Playboy. And he immediat ...more

I generally enjoy this author, so I went into this one with high expectations. In a lot of ways, they were met and there were parts of this title I really enjoyed. Unfortunately, there were also parts of this that I struggled with.

I really liked Maverick, and while there were times I liked Olivia, I never totally warmed to her. And, I am not sure I totally believed their attraction. I believed it on his side, but on hers, not as much.

I absolutely loved Falling for the Bad Boy by Kennedy Fox, so when I heard the second book, Falling for a Playboy was coming, I was very excited to get my hands on it. This is a standalone and can be read as such, however, book one is so worth reading as well and one I highly recommend.

We met Olivia in the first book in the series. Olivia is a woman who is organized and always in complete control. Maverick Kingston is a cover model that is cocky and a bit of a playboy. He takes things in stride
