You won’t go wrong with this delicious tale from S.L. Scott. Her take on royal romance is truly unique and divine!” ~Author Adriana Locke


Being bad never felt so good.
I fell for Ally the moment I saw her. Who doesn’t like a confident, intelligent woman with curves I could spend days exploring?
Who am I kidding?
I have.
Many times.
Our story ended abruptly when she left like we weren’t meant to be. We are. So I’m calling her bluff. That’s how I ended up thousands of miles from home, standing next to a man who claims to be her fiancé.
Being good has never felt so bad.
When it comes to a successful man with an incredible body and biteable jaw aka Hutton . . . let’s just say willpower is not my strong suit.
Need more?
Try bad-boy American.
You’re welcome.
Embracing my newfound good girl status, I do the right thing and start my reign. My desires no longer matter. The monarchy, the people, and my country do. There is no place for love in this new life.
But I never expected to see him again, much less standing next to my royally appointed soon-to-be fiancé.
As if that didn’t complicate things, the man I once told I love you to is wearing a perfectly tailored tuxedo and my favorite smirk. I straighten my crown and adjust my dress, realizing this good girl never stood a chance. I’ll take the bad reputation if I get him.

My Review

For one night, Hutton Everest and Ally Edwards were nothing more than a man and a woman who were sexually attracted to one another and gave into that desire; they didn’t worry about their future…they didn’t worry about their responsibilities…they didn’t worry about their reputations – all they cared about was getting lost in the sexual haze that sparked between them as soon as their paths crossed.

But Ally’s life’s path has already been written due to her birthright, which means that the wild and reckless behavior she gave into with Hutton can’t last forever; in fact, it’s simply a series of fleeting moments in her life because as soon as she returns home, she must commit herself to leading by example, to shedding any bad behavior tendencies in order to fulfill her royal responsibilities, living for the good of the crown and the good of her people. 

Too bad this American bad boy has never been good at following the rules and the only person whose opinion matters to him is Ally herself, which means that if there’s a chance that they can continue exploring what’s between them, despite the obstacles, despite the protocols, despite what’s ‘proper’ in the eyes of her people, he’s all in and ready to be Ally’s American Prince Charming – one who’s not afraid to fight dirty to reclaim his queen.

Bad Reputation is an angsty, steamy, and twisty modern-day royal fairy tale – one that will make readers question how anything can work between Ally and Hutton due to the amount of obstacles that these two must contend with because one of them is a royal and the other is only a commoner.

Ally’s royal lineage and her soon-to-be position as Queen are both things that Hutton will have to work around and if these two hope to figure out a way to be together, Hutton’s going to need to use every move in his arsenal and every bit of his stubbornness as well as his deep feelings for Ally in order to fight against a nation’s history and its customs, which is easier said than done.

I would so live the life of a bad girl in order to have Hutton Everest because his confidence, his personality, and his drive to have everything he’s ever wanted make him one handsome alpha male, but what makes him even better is the fact that he is more than willing to bend the knee for his queen, which, in my opinion, makes him an ideal partner and confidant.

And regardless of the ways in which Ally’s parents look to thwart any connection between Ally and Hutton, the heart wants what the heart wants and it has nothing to do with status, with pedigree, or with what’s proper; it deals with two hearts and two bodies that call to one another in deep and meaningful ways, proving that rules just might have to be broken.

4.5 Poison Apples  


Living in the capital of Texas with her family, Scott loves traveling and avocados, beaches, and cooking with her kids. She’s obsessed with epic romances and loves a good plot twist. Her favorite color is blue, but she likens it more toward the sky than the emotion. Her home is filled with the welcoming symbol of the pineapple and finds surfing a challenge though she likes to think she’s a pro.
