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?

NICUnurse’s Review of Reputation by Adriana Locke
Reputation is the second book in Adriana Locke’s Mason Family series, but I promise that you do not have to read the first book in order to fully enjoy Reputation. Adriana Locke is one of the authors on my automatic 1-click list. I fell in love with her writing a few years ago, and I’ve tried to catch every new release since then. Her writing just resonates and clicks with me each and every time. I can’t quite put my finger on the why of it, but it does. I guess it’s like any other relationship in your life. Some you are drawn to, and some you aren’t. It’s part of why I love reading new-to-me authors. It’s kind of like the speed dating of the book world. Most of the time, the prospects are decent. Some of the time, they are downright awful. And every once in a while, you come upon a big winner. And I hit the jackpot when I landed on my first Adriana Locke book. Now, I can’t help but come back, over and over again. She writes amazingly complex but (mostly) lovable characters in amazingly emotional (in the best possible way) stories.
NICUnurse’s Rating: Best friends for years, Coy and Bellamy are now enemies. Or, at least in her eyes, they are. Coy can’t figure out how their relationship went from friends to frenemies, and he’s determined to change it. But Bellamy is tired of people leaving her in one way or another. And as she’s facing the potential ultimate loss in her life, she’s not inclined to let Coy back in. Ever. With their chemistry as close to the boiling point as ever, it’s a challenge to keep her distance.
So what happens when two of the most stubborn characters ever to grace a book face off? That becomes an emotional, tear-inducing, heartbreakingly beautiful story that Reputation is…along with some lighthearted, laugh out loud moments to ease the ache in your heart. This was a hard story for me to read for similar personal reasons that it was a hard one for the author to write. However, it was so worth powering through to get to the beautiful HEA. Now. Bring on Reckless!
I give Reputation by Adriana Locke 5 out of 5 propellers!
