Booklist STARRED Review for Bad Bachelor
A year after she caught her fiancé cheating on her on the eve of their wedding, Darcy Greer’s friends try to convince her to start dating again. Reed McMahon, a high-powered PR man, had decided that helping the library beloved by his assistant is the perfect project for his pro bono efforts, despite the fact he hates libraries and reading books. Darcy, a tough Brooklynite with piercings and tattoos, just happens to be the librarian in charge of her library’s fund-raising project, which pairs her with the impossibly handsome Reed. Reed is facing his own struggles as a new app that warns women away from men behaving badly and which is sweeping Manhattan has named him number-one bad bachelor. London respects the reader enough to offer just enough titillation to inflame a romance lover’s imagination without the explicit sexual details found in lesser romance novels. As the story deepens and it becomes clear that, behind their tough exteriors and professional expertise, both Darcy and Reed are vulnerable and wounded, London presents a genuinely entertaining and memorable read.
