Wes Evans, son of Broadway royalty, just wants to achieve something without riding on his family's coattails. Too bad the whole world is talking about his sex life after the notorious Bad Bachelors app dubs him "The Anaconda." But when he sees a talented ballet dancer, he knows she is exactly what he needs to make his show a success.

Remi Drysdale only had one thought when she fled Australia for New York--never mix business with pleasure again. Ever. She gets the perfect chance to reclaim her career when a handsome stranger asks her to audition for his show. Remi promises herself not to tangle with the guy who holds her career in his matter how enticing his reviews are on the Bad Bachelors app...

In Bad Reputation (Bad Bachelors #2) by Stefanie London, Wes Evans has decided it's time to start living his dreams instead of doing what his parents wants him to do. However, finding the right person to be the star of his show and getting his show launched isn't as easy as he thought it would be until he meets Remi Drysdale and asks her to audition. Since clearly, she's the best woman for the lead role. Will Wes and Remi be able to work together and get their shot at happy ever after or will Remi walk away before history has a chance to repeat itself?

Ms. London writes such incredible books with great characters, dialogue that always manages to draw me in from the very beginning and offers a wonderful combination of intense moments, playful banter and plenty of passion; and a fast-paced plot that encompasses tough obstacles for the hero and heroine to overcome in order to achieve their happy ever after and this story was no different. Really, the way this story started had me smiling immediately because of the conversation that sounds juicy, but turns out to be quite innocent. However, it was from the moment the hero and heroine come face-to-face for the first time where things really take off for this story, as Remi doesn't trust easily and doesn't know whether giving Wes a chance is the right thing to do, especially with everything she's been through in her past. She's been burned badly before. 

As for the dialogue, it was compelling, intense and emotionally-animating due to the main characters back stories and what's happening to Wes because of the Bad Bachelor app. However, there's also the situation with Remi's friends that had me sympathizing with her too, because of the secret they're keeping that makes her think she's not trustworthy enough to know. Will her friends put their trust in her or will their friendship be broken? Moreover, I liked the heroine's resilience, her courageousness and that she took a chance on the hero, even though history could easily repeat itself, if she gets involved with the hero and things don't work for the best between them. While the hero, he's confident, driven, persistent in his pursuit of the heroine and I liked how he handles what's going on when it comes to the Bad Bachelor app. Then again, I was a little impressed by the comments for him on the site, especially since the app dubs him 'The Anaconda'. 

Overall, Ms. London has delivered an utterly engaging and memorable read in this book where the chemistry between this couple was off-the-charts; the romance was tangible and absolutely hot; and the ending had me loving the hero's determination to show Remi that he has her back always and isn't about to let anything come between them. However, it was the epilogue that wrapped this story up perfectly because the heroine's hard work pays off. Really, through the author's words she soars and shines when it comes to her ballet. I would recommend Bad Reputation by Ms. London, if you enjoy the opposites attract trope or books by authors Cat Carmine, Noelle Adams, Pippa Grant and Sarina Bowen. I would also recommend this series, as the Bad Bachelor app is very interesting and doesn't shine the heroes in the best of lights, but in the end, it's absolutely delightful that the heroines see them as much, much more than just an abysmal profile.
