Book Description

A New York Times Bestseller

"Who gives a damn about their reputation? Oh, that would be me! Especially since mine had gone straight to hell in the span of thirty minutes."

Maysie Ardin is soaking up the summer before her junior year of college, shopping, hanging by the pool and shopping some more. But when her black belt in spending lands her in trouble with her parents, she is forced to take a second job at a local bar to dig herself out of a deep financial pit.

She thought she’d be miserable. But then Maysie didn’t count on Jordan Levitt, the hot, pierced and tattooed, drum playing bartender who also happens to be very interested in her. And the feelings are totally mutual.

It had the makings of the perfect romantic set up. Boy meets girl. Boy likes girl. Boy has girlfriend? Okay, maybe not.

But attraction is a hard thing to ignore and soon Jordan and Maysie find themselves in the middle of a gossip induced firestorm. Maysie has to learn whether she can set aside her fear of public disapproval in order to be with the one she wants. Or will she let the opinions of others dictate her life and her heart?

4.0 out of 5 stars This author is amazing! December 20, 2012
By J.M.T.
Format:Kindle Edition
Is self-worth really found in the opinions of others?

Twenty-year-old Maysie Ardin finally has independence from her very conservative parents. She's about to start her junior year of college and is a proud member of Chi Delta sorority. A shopping spree with her sorority sisters lands her $3,500 in debt...with her parent's credit card. In order to pay off her debt, Maysie is forced to take on a second job. She finds a waitressing job at a local bar. That's where she meets Jordan Livett.

"You have taken my heart, every inch of me, Maysie. I don't know that I have anything else to give you that you don't already have."

OH. MY. GOD. Jordan Levitt, is dreamy. He's a hot frat boy tattooed bartender with multiple piercings who moonlights as a drummer. Oh, and he sings. He's instantly attracted to Maysie. So what's the problem? He has a girlfriend, Olivia. Olivia is the president of Maysie's sorority. Jordan is a senior and attending the same college as Maysie. Avoiding Jordan is impossible. She finally gives into her desires and gets caught by one of her "sisters". Oops! Now labeled the college whore, Maysie must learn to deal with her new role at school.

"I wish I could stop feeling like Kelly Taylor splitting up Dylan and Brenda."

Gossip, catfights, backstabbing, cheating, sisterhood, friendship, jealousy, sex, and love all tested as Maysie learns how to look beyond what others think. We watch her grow up and face the music. She's always based her life on what others think, but when it slaps her in the face (literally) she must learn love and respect herself first before she can expect it from others.

"Why does the opinion of every other jackass on campus matter more than how you and I feel?

5.0 out of 5 stars Jordan Levitt is Hawt! December 20, 2012
By Lise
Format:Kindle Edition
Maisey is an insecure college girl away from her controlling parents with a Father that makes her think she is not good enough. She joins a sorority to help her fit it and feel part of something. She and her roommate Riley, get a job at a local bar, Barton's for the summer. This is where Maysie meets and falls for bad boy drummer, songwriter, Ducati riding, bartending hottie fully equipped with tats and piercings. His name is Jordan and he happens to be fraternity president dating the sorioty president. But... Jordan has not loved Olivia for a while now, but has not told her this and she is away for the summer...Uh Oh!
There is instant attraction between Mays and Jordan and Jordan wants to get to know Mays a little bit better. Once Maysie finds out Jordan has a girlfriend of three years and this girlfriend is the president of Maysie's sorority .... Well that kinda puts a screeching halt to pursuing anything with Jordan... or does it?
So begins the roller coaster of events that will test everything Maysie and Jordan feel for one another: Olivia's return, the parties, the betrayal and lies (Greek sisters can be nasty), the misunderstandings and "the song"... As in most new adult genre angst filled books; there is the drama, drama, drama and this book certainly had it's share, but it also had a really sweet story of coming into your own and deciding what you want out of life and letting go of what others (including parents) think of you.
The author did a very nice job of letting the reader experience what Maysie and Jordan felt and why. I liked how they both dealt with what was happening to them and around them. Yes, there were some bumps in the road and some damn-don't-do-that moments, but they all played a part in the journey of discovery for this couple.

3.0 out of 5 stars Bad Rep January 6, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Well shoot. This book has me all sorts of confused on what kind of rating to give it. The characters were developed, the writing was well done, and the story moved at a natural pace with seemingly realistic outcomes to all the actions/decisions the characters made. I found myself drawn into the book because of the fact that it was a well written story. However, the story itself just lacked in my opinion. I hate catty drama and that was ALL this book was. I hated that the story line with her parents was never resolved or never even attempted to be resolved. I hated that the entire story was basically about a few catty, jealous college girls and why anyone would be affected by them at all. I was in a sorority, I understood a lot of the feelings and knowledge of that world, but I just could not connect with Maysie's constant need to please a group of girls over herself. Jordan also wasn't the most dreamy character either. He had flaws and some of them made me just wish they would both walk away and the book would end because the circular BS in the story just got old, and quick. I really don't know how to rate this book. Maybe I need to think about it overnight and revisit the rating tomorrow

5.0 out of 5 stars Deliciously Great December 20, 2012
By Tanya
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Must, Must, MUST read! My review is going to be short and sweet, just enough to whet your appetite, because you really have to read this book for yourself.
Bad Rep is a fantastic, funny, heart-wrenching, heart-warming story of love. Maysie & Jordan are so real and easy to relate to. Oh, and Jordan with his tattoo and piercings is quite delicious. ;)
The supporting characters are great and I keep coming back to the word real to describe them, we all either are or know a Riley or should.
The songs written in this book are so beautiful.
One of my favorite parts is after letting the book sink in and marinate, you realize that there is a terrific lesson laced throughout the book, one I believe we all can use. I have come to love A. Meredith Walters' writing style and look forward to more from this author.
