Review: Reputation by Adriana Locke

☆☆➹⁀☆ 5 stars ☆➹⁀☆☆

About the Book:

Coy Mason is a jerk.

If there is one truth that Bellamy Davenport knows, it’s that. Hands-down. (Well, that and the fact that she didn’t mean to hurt him. Physically. Coy can’t be hurt emotionally because he doesn’t have a heart.)

Coy is not just the small-town, literal boy-next-door. He’s a heartbreaking, womanizing, mischief-making (and delicious) man and was all of those things well before he became a hot-shot country music sensation.

He’s a dream standing in her doorway with no shirt, messy hair, and a ‘Do you wanna?’ grin. But he’s also a nightmare for her heart and she knows it.

Their enemies-to-lovers relationship always ends the same way—heavy on the enemies, light on the lovers.

So why is she still standing there?



Guest Reviewer Lisha’s Thoughts:

Reputation is book #2 in the Mason Family series featuring notorious Country Music bad boy Coy Mason AKA Kelvin McCoy and Bellamy “Bells” Davenport and I really loved it. Adriana Locke is divine at creating warm and funny family sagas and as ever she is top of her game with her latest. Coy in his own words is a Country Music Sensation who has been enjoying his bad boy reputation but after an unexpected PR stunt that put him in a bad light he’s starting to reconsider his lifestyle. 

Bellamy is headstrong and feisty and a perfect foil to Coy’s banter and teasing. The dialogue between them was often hilarious and I found myself laughing out loud to his shenanigans. She was able to hold her own with him and you could feel her pain thinking he had forgotten her and walked away. I loved seeing Coy shed his reputation and acting the man that he truly was inside and earning Bellamy’s trust again. Coy described themselves as both alphas but also as oil and water that were drawn to each other and with that there were plenty of smoldering moments between them as well. Because family is ever present in these novels I will be looking forward to the next one’s adventure.
