The relationship between Apple and Brick is somewhat twisted and has so many layers that would keep even a physiologist dumb-founded.
"I'm his proudest accomplishment and his biggest prize, but underneath all the bulls**t, he understands me. I understand him. We're two of a f***ed-up kind."
Yep, they truly are two very effed up people, but I liked how they operated. The game of seduction they play is sick and perverse, but they do it so well. With the glimpse's we get of Apple's past throughout the story, you begin to understand why she does what she does. Brick on the other hand is still a mystery to me, but I have a feeling I will get to know him better in the next installment, and I can't wait!
As college graduation approaches, Apple and Brick wager one last time. But this time Apple faces perhaps her greatest obstacle ever - falling in love with the man she had intended on ruining.
K.B. Nelson has done it once again folks! Bad Reputation is a phenomenal story that made me not want to stop reading. Seriously. It pained me to put it down for even a second. This story is a fast paced, hot and sexy tale that is gritty, hard and has a lot of bite. It keeps you engaged and anxious to keep turning the pages to see how everything is going to play out.
If you are a fan of Nelson, then this is another MUST read. If you aren't a fan or unfamiliar with the authors work then this is the absolute perfect choice for you to check out Nelson's writing style for yourself and become as hooked as I and others have become. It's a highly addictive read that is sizzling HOT and I can't wait for the next installment to be released.
Apple and Brick are two of a kind. They both are vindictive and want the power; control. After coming up with a bet, Apple has to make her professor fall in love with her, sleep with her then she has to break his heart. Brick has to bed the virgin US Senator's daughter. Anyone else who gets caught in the process is collateral damage.
Sometimes plans don't work out the way they're suppose to and the people doing the hurting, end up getting hurt. Just how cruel can karma be?

What an interesting read. I didn’t know if was loosely based on Dangerous Liaisons but now that I know I can see the comparisons. I really liked certain point in the book and then in others I was hiding my eyes because I was embarrassed to be reading it.
The female lead, Apple, was likable for me throughout the book. I saw from the beginning that she was never comfortable in her role as the bitch “mean girl” that screwed every guy she saw because she was always searching for a connection. The worst thing that ever happen to that girl was meeting up with Brick when she was in a bad place emotional. With her low self-esteem she was ripe for the picking.
The bet she has with her “slut in arms” is Brick. He comes across and a selfish, boy….at least to me….from the moment you meet him. He’s one of those guys that thinks he’s god’s gift and unfortunately there are women out there that think he is as well. He might have the sexy tattoos and nice body but underneath he’s garbage and it shows. Anyways the bet….sleep with that untouchable person before the other or they have to sleep together. That in itself seems rather odd to me. They had already slept together in the past and from the way they interact recently as well.
The plot gets a little cheesy from there but does have some good mixed in which is why I kept reading. If you can read past the cheese and really see the story you do get interested in how Apple will deal with it all. I did think the interaction with her and Jensen seemed forced in the beginning and very fast but that’s just me. It would have been interesting to see inside Brick’s mind when he was chasing his prey. You only got to see if from Apple’s POV and that left his side of the story lacking for me. The entire books moved at a rather fast pace really, it would have been nice to get deeper into the story but maybe that was the point since it was the first in a series.
The best parts of the book for me were the scenes with Apple and Jensen when the outside world wasn’t interrupting. The dialogue was real and the chemistry could be felt. Each brought out something in the other that was lacking and made it all work. I enjoyed how vulnerable Jensen was once he realized how intense his feelings were and how when things seemed like they might fall apart he didn’t just walk away. That to me seemed very real-life. You don’t walk away when you love someone even when things get messy.
I could have done without Cece, she was a waste of words but maybe she’s got more going on in book 2. It seemed that Apple was trying to pass the torch to this girl but Cece came across and just a hypocritical bitch to me. I get how we can all come out of our shell once its broken but she’s proceeded to stomp all over people immediately when not 10 pages before she was a sheltered virgin afraid of her shadow.
I would recommend this book as a day read because it is short enough you should have no issue reading it in an afternoon or night. I would like to read the next book to see where it all goes and if the storyline gets stronger. Overall I’d say they book is 3 Star.
