Summary:  The sequel to Heather Wardell's laugh-out-loud hilarious reality TV send-up, "Seven Exes Are Eight Too Many"!

During her time on "Ragged Royalty", Ashley developed a reputation as the show's scowling shrew. Clever editing, no doubt, but she still hates it. Now that her stint on the show is complete, she's determined to get the revenge she deserves on the producers who made her look so awful. Without it she can't move forward and decide what comes next for her. She knows what doesn't, though--ever seeing MC or Kent or any of the other contestants again. She hates all of them and they hate her too. Who could like "Angry Ashley"?

When she meets sexy attorney Will on the flight home, she believes he can help her get everything she needs. Until he double-crosses her. Now she needs revenge on him too.

After reluctantly enlisting fellow contestant Sam's much-needed help in her "Bad Will Hunting" mission, Ashley turns up a ton of dead ends but also some exciting life-changing possibilities. But she can't get over her need to get one over on Will, and on everyone else who's wronged her.

With so much "bad will" in her way, can Ashley ever find true happiness?

Review:  I received a copy of this novel from the author in exchange for my honest opinion, and I absolutely loved this book. Bad Will Hunting is the sequel to Seven Exes are Eight Too Many, which I reviewed back in 2011. I loved that book, and this book didn’t disappoint either. Bad Will Hunting tells the story of Ashley, also known as “Angry Ashley”, and her need for wanting to get revenge on EVERYONE who’s wronged her, including Ragged Royalty. Throughout this novel, I struggled with a love/hate relationship with Ashley. At times she could be really sweet, then she’d be really angry; when she was angry and hell-bent on revenge, it was hard for me to actually like her, but in the end, I ended up loving her just as much as I loved MC in Seven Exes are Eight Too Many. Since I read the first book in the series back in 2011, I had a hard time remembering Ashley, but I was able to catch on quickly after a few chapters. Overall, this novel was an excellent read, and I can’t wait to read the next book in the series!
