But let’s take a look at the major players in this story – Brick and Apple. If you read Bad Reputation, you know that Apple was tired of the game she and Brick were playing and it didn't help matters much when she fell in love with her intended target Jensen. Apple leaves with Jensen which leaves Brick a wreck. With Apple out of the picture, he is like a lost puppy and discovers that he loves (or thinks he does) Apple. When Apple returns to pack up her belongings in order to start a life with Jensen, Brick ups the ante and the game continues on like never before. The rules have changed, but it is basically the same game. As before, someone will get hurt in the end.
Apple really does want to be a different person and as a reader, I really liked the new Apple. Although she still is searching for answers, she is on the right track – if she can separate herself from Brick. Although her and Jensen have some issues to work out, I really like them as a couple.
Brick – oh Brick. I’m not going to lie. I really didn't like Brick at all in the beginning. He’s a manipulative, conniving, arrogant bastard who I really didn't believe could change his ways. But we get to see a different side of Brick in Bad Situation and throughout we get to see a glimmer of hope that maybe, just maybe, there is hope for this tormented man. I admit that after reading Bad Situation, I have a special place in my heart for this man.
Overall, I was happy with the ending and can’t wait to see what Nelson gives us in Bad Imitation and from the snippet I read, it’s going to be a wild and crazy ride.
K.B. Nelson is a seriously good writer and I could really tell that a lot of heart and soul is going into this series. Every book to date written by this outstanding author has been exceptionally good, so you can’t go wrong by starting this series to get a taste of what Nelson has to offer!
My Thoughts: http://oneguysguidetogoodreads.blogspot.com/2015/09/bad-situation-bad-reputation-2-by-kb_20.html
Allow me to be completely honest with you guys here. I was not anticipating this to be a novel I enjoyed, at all. While Bad Reputation definitely kept me intrigued, the idea of a redemption story for Brick gave me the worst taste in my mouth. As far as characters go, I'd never met one that I thought was damaged beyond repair. One person who never deserved a ray of hope or an ounce of salvation. Then I met Brick Valmont. This deeply disturbed guy is evil down to his very core, even after reading, I'm still not sold on him. I can say, however, that KB Nelson did an absolutely incredible job in warming my heart towards Brick and see that there can be redemption for even the darkest of souls.
Bad Situation is a whole lot like it's predecessor Bad Reputation, in fact, this almost reads as an extension of book one rather than an entirely separate novel. As told from both Apple and Brick's POV, we learn that Apple's 'happily ever after' we read in book one may not be all it's cracked up to be. With more heartbreak, more deception, and more drama, Bad Reputation sets the stage for Apple and Brick's groundbreaking finale in the best ways possible!
While I enjoyed book one, I was really turned off at times by the fact that this series is more or less about using love and sex as a game. Thankfully Nelson upped the ante in book two. While the game is still in play, the goals are a little more realistic and the sex really isn't as overbearing as book one. On a negative note, I will say that this is probably one of the most dramatic reads I've ever encountered. So much so that I had to put the book down several times and walk away. It's the good 'soap opera' kind of drama that leads me to wonder how many Daytime Emmy's Nelson has under her belt, but doesn't always appeal to me.
With twists and turns at every page, Nelson never lets the characters get too comfortable before tossing another wrench to their plans. I have to say that I was impressed with so many plot points that I didn't see coming, it was a treat to be constantly surprised. This story will definitely keep you on your toes.
I have to add that when it comes to characters, I really think Nelson outdid herself when it came to character development with Brick and Tyra (Brick's newest conquest). While Apple ultimately fell short for me in this installment (in fact I think I could have done without her at all), Nelson's passion to redeem Brick was evident in the embodiment of Tyra. Tyra was written to perfection and really guided the story in the best of ways. In fact, I think she's become my favorite series character to-date.
A relatively short read, fans will fly through this one in just a few sittings. I am confident that anyone who enjoyed book one will be pleasantly surprised with the outcome of book two. It's unexpected and emotional in ways I was not expecting, giving you hope for the characters at a time I thought there was none.
With at least two more novels in this series planned, I am anxious to see how Nelson handles the stories of Cece and Dom. While Apple and Brick;s stories may be finished, Nelson has no shortage of story to tell with the predicaments she's placed her characters in. I know this reader will be anxiously awaiting!
With all this being said, I am granting Bad Situation a well-earned 4-star review. Perfect for fans of dark romance and the New Adult genre, this series is sure to be a hit! Be sure to add it to your TBR today!
