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

Olivia works as an assistant to a bestselling author. Rachel has her running ragged , even shopping for her and taking her dog for walks. Olivia has no free time. Even when at home she is working.
Maverick is a up and coming model but right now is a model for Rachel's Romance covers. When he needs to be at some book signings is when everything starts. Because of a tragedy in his past he won't fly. So Olivia has to pick him up and drive him to where they need to be. She insists he is a playboy an
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?

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 c

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

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

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

Olivia is the Personal Assistant to the bestselling author that treats her like crap. When the author hires the cover model to appear at events with her, Olivia must travel with Maverick because he does not fly. During their road trip Maverick and Olivia forge a bond that shows them both that there is more to them than the initial reactions of a playboy and a pushover personal assistant. This story was a little douchy in the beginning but then it got funny and sexy.

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 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

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!

Olivia is an overworked and under appreciated assistant for an author. She is scheduled to go on a book tour with a famous playboy and book cover model, Maverick Kingston.
Olivia is an orderly workaholic, Maverick is laid back and knows he’s gorgeous.
Maverick doesn’t fly for personal reasons and Olivia doesn’t do relationships for personal reasons.
This is a slow burn romance, lots of attraction and sexual tension. I couldn’t stand Rachel, Olivia’s boss, a de

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

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

What a great story from the fantastic duo known as Kennedy Fox!!

This story is one I have not seen written before- or anything like it at all.

This is the story of an author’s assistant and a cover model- two complete opposites. She’s uptight and prissy. He’s sarcastic and arrogant and he likes to push her buttons. They are like oil and water at first and get on each other’s nerves but they start to get along and have amazing chemistry.

Maverick and Olivia are so great together. From their banter i

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

This book was a fun read; fast story line and the take on the hard working but high maintenance best-selling author was good. It made me see that our authors, who write and move us to laughter, tears, deep thinking and growing up are also people with their own high pressure lives and issues.
I liked the hard working h and while H started as an overgrown child, I liked that he was the one who eventually pushed the h to give their relationship a chance; he made more effort to sustain a long distan

Falling for the Playboy is book 2 in the Bedtime Reads series (books are read a stand-alones). I can always count on chemistry and amazing swoony characters. Road trip plus should-be-off-limits chemistry?!?! YES, PLEASE!

This story, as with ALL Kennedy Fox books, delivers on all the things I want: swoony, funny, heartfelt, and sexy!

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.

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

Falling for the Playboy, book two in Kennedy Fox’s Bedtime Stories series was exactly what I needed. I found myself smiling a lot throughout and I couldn’t wait to see how long it took for Maverick and Olivia to break the rules and explore each other in the carnal sense!

Olivia, or Miss Priss as Maverick loves to call her, is a great female lead, and I love how the authors allowed an insider’s look from someone who works her butt off for an author in the publishing world. From Olivia’s perspecti

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
