      *A free copy of this ebook was provided by NetGalley in exchange for an honest review*. Thank you, NetGalley!Review in SPANISH (y con videos de Cruel Intentions, para variar): en La Loca de los Libros."I'm not begging for understanding or empathy, I know exactly who-and what-I am. But like a house of cards built of nothing but face cards, I know the Queen will always rest atop the throne. And I know as soon as my reign is over, I'll become a nobody again-just another useless two of cards.I have [...]

      “I’m nobody when I’m not actively engaged in the art of manipulation and deceit. I’m hollow without it. And I don’t deserve to die young.” Bad reputation was a story about a woman scorned. Someone who refuses to let anyone in by keeping her bad reputation intact. She was hurt a while back, and doesn’t feel it’s worth letting someone in if it keeps out the pain. So she goes along her way, making victims out of other men and breaking their heart before the same can happen to her. B [...]

      **** 4 Delicious Stars ****I usually roll my eyes when I read books taking place in college. It's probably because of the annoying drama, but I really enjoyed this. I'm so easy I got hooked right at the prologue. Shame on me. Hehe.Apple has a bad reputation. She uses sex as a weapon and enjoys how it makes her feel powerful. She wasn't born to be bitter and vengeful. No first she got hurt in high school, and then she had a very disconnected player teach her the ropes so that she would never get [...]

      Apple and Brick had some serious Cruel a intentions vibes going on. They were the puppeteers behind a dangerous game of seduction with the other coeds on campus but only Brick and Apple were privy to the rules. Brick and Apple make a bet just like any other, she bags a teacher and he finally gets that Senators virgin daughter he's been eyeing. Winner is crowned King of their games and if Brick has his way, he'll get Apple in the end too.I’m nobody when I’m not actively engaged in the art of [...]

      It's a game of manipulation based on lies and deceit that leaves a trail of broken hearts behind. For Apple Malloy, this is her way of getting revenge against any guy that has wronged her. It's a game she plays very well as she has been trained by the best - Brick Valmont. 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 bullshit, he [...]

    6. Tink Magoo is bad at reviews

      Someone please tell me what in the ever loving fuck I just read. I can't decide if I love it or hate it. The whole thing was just a cluster fuck of bitter, messed up, immature kids playing games with other people's lives, just because someone hurt them years ago. What I struggled with the most was the connection between Apple and Jenson, I just didn't feel it. He was a confusing character, one minute he was almost shy and the next he was this arrogant man whore. Then he's this sweet damaged man. [...]

      *I received a free copy of this book from the author in exchange for my honest review*Apple and Brick are not nice people. When they want something they'll figure out a way to get it. So, to keep things interesting they make a bet. That's when the real fun startsOMG!! It doesn't matter what type of book K.B. Nelson writes I love it. This was so sexy and I enjoyed every word of it. I can't wait for the second installment.

      Full review and more available at: oneguysguidetosp*****My Thoughts:As some of you may remember, I fell in love with KB Nelson last summer when I devoured her debut novel, Carnival, in one sitting. Carnival, and it's two sequels, would go on to make up one of my all time favorite NA Romance series, securing KB Nelson a spot on my 'auto-read' list. When Nelson approached me months ago with the idea for what would later become Bad Reputation, I didn't know what to expect or how she would ever pull [...]

    10. LennaWright-Berry

      All I can say is I wished I was more like Apple. She is independent, takes no crap from anyone and does what she wants, unless its a bet from her former lover/teacher/drug/devil- Brick. After a broken heart from from high school crush that she fell in love with and later found out the guy was in her collage class until her savior Brick comes to her rescue. Unbeknownst to her hes the devil in disguise. Now years later she is now a what I call a player but not, preying upon men to play with their [...]

    11. Romance Readers Retreat

      This has been such a difficult review to write, and indeed a difficult book to read. Personally I always have trouble getting into a book when I don't like the main character, and I did not like Apple, the main character of this book. However since this is a just my personal opinion I've tried to be objective when considering this review.I pretty much hated Apple for the first half of this book, I found her to be selfish, nasty and just down right self-centred, and for this reason I had trouble [...]

    12. Jenna

      Wow. This was such a great book. Going into it I wasn't sure if I would like it or not. But I loved it.This book has a very Cruel Intentions feel to it but better. Apple is a bad girl and she is good at manipulating the hell out of men. All this she learned from her ex lover and best friend Brick. Brick is the devil, plain and simple. This man plays with women and breaks their hearts and he has taught Apple to do the same thing. Of course they have their reasons but it is still cruel. Apple make [...]

      When good girls go badApple had her whole life in front of her. It was senior prom and she was madly in love. Then the world was ripped out from under her and she was changed in ways she never saw coming.Brick found her and took her under his wing. She was broken and lost with nobody to turn to for help and he helped put her back together. He took the pieces of her broken heart and swept them under the rug then forged her into a stronger, smarter, more worthy opponent and partner.It was game on [...]

    14. Sherley Vazquez

      **I was gifted with an ARC of this book in exchange for my honest review**Bad ReputationThis book was absolutely intense. I have never read anything like it in the sense that the main character had such an intense and corrupted personality. But again I am a sucker for a book when there are so many plot twists and personal demons that they have to each on their own grow from. The character development was beautiful. Thank you for this read it was amazing and I can't wait to see what you have next [...]

    15. Alison Phillips

      Wow, just finished this book and absolutely loved it. Loved Apple, she got her heart broken years ago and is taking no prisoners. She meets Brick in college and they begin their path together playing their games and hurting many at the same time. Not caring who they hurt as long as they get to have their fun. That all changes when Apple's next pawn changes her for the better. She starts to fall for Jensen, but is it too late for her? Will Jensen still be there when he discovers the truth and wil [...]

    16. Monica

      Where do I begin? Well, this book is HOT! HOT! HOT! I highly recommend it, unless your a prude, then it might give you a heart attack. Apple and Brick are not good people, they are selfish and at times cruel to others.Apple sets her sights on Jensen Moon. Apple and Brick make the bet. Don't cry if this book offends you, for you have had fair warning about what awaits behind the cover. If you are brave enough though, prepare for the awesomeness that is K. B. Nelson.

      I received this book in exchange for an honest review from NetGalley and Neon Lights Publishing.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 “ [...]

      **I received a copy of this book from the publisher via Netgalley.**I'm nobody when I'm not actively engaged in the art of manipulation and deceit. I'm hollow without it.This is a story of manipulation and deceit. Of revenge and love.Apple Malloy was a good girl, a nice person your best girlfriend. Until she was taking advantage of because of that. Typical she thought she loved a boy and instead he used her.Enter Brick and this story gets interesting and twisted.Behind those fucking beautiful em [...]

    19. Alicia

      The title really mirrors what this book is all about, Apple is the bad girl in this book, just like her friend with benefits Brick. Apple wants to break of their relationship, and Brick decides they should make a bet. If Apple is able to break her professor's heart and reputation before Brick can fulfill his part of the bet, she's out of their relationship. Everyone on campus knows Apple is bad news, guys are only interested in her to get laid, and she likes to play games. So the bet starts of j [...]

      ☆☆彡ARC ★彡★彡 provided by author for honest review. 。。。。。。"Live. Love. Fuck. That sounds about right"- Apple .。。。。。。Like the Russian Roulette game where you gamble till there is one winner. And to reign with the power over someone. There is a girl name Apple, who takes no shit from anyone. A girl with a scared past but who plays the "killer not the victim". A bad reputation that she caries with pride,and that is part of who she is, or is it really her? Meet Br [...]

    21. Angie

      Holy crap. By the time I was finished with this book I was blown away and wasn't absolutely sure how to feel. I loved the book - just a mix of emotions about Apple and how everything evolved. The story is told from Apple's point of view and it is incredible to read how she became this bitter and deviant woman and how she begins feeling real emotions while she's out to conquer her professor, Jensen. She struggles with her conscience and it's interesting to compare her growth against her mentor of [...]

      Read my full review of the book at seriesousbookreviews! Spoiler Free!**I received a copy of this book from the publisher via Netgalley. All opinions are my own.**This book was exactly what I wanted! It was dark, it was twisted and it was so much fun to read. It's a modern day Cruel Intentions story but it definitely has it's own spin on events that keeps readers on the edge of their seats. It was really hard to put this one down!I loved to hate Apple and Brick. While I feel bad that they were h [...]

      Actual rating 2.5I'm having a tough time coming up with how I feel about this book. Therefore I'm going to do this review a little differently to normal. Instead of writing long-winded, jumbled explanations that don't make sense because I don't know where my thoughts are at, I'm going to do a list format.So The positives:- It's short and easy to read.- It's a quick read.- The characters are twisted and messed up, especially Brick. It made the situations interesting.- The concept wasn't one I've [...]

    24. Melanie

      Oh my oh my! Bad Reputation is an epic book. Yes, the story does sit based lightly on Cruel Intentions/Dangerous Liaisons, but dare I say its better?Apple is not someone I would ever want to cross. She's a bad girl and has been that way a while. But we do find that there are reasons Apple is the way she is and it might not all be her own doing. Brick was. ok can I say he was a total and utter prick?I seriously hated this guy from the get go and although he helped fuel Apples actions - the guy wa [...]

    25. Felecia **Victorious Rebel** Mulkey

      If you enjoy a book with devious, un-caring characters, a book with gritty sex scenes, a book that changes your views on meeting people, then this may be the book for you!I can’t say I liked Apple but I can say I understood why she was the way she was. Things happened to her and she made choices based off those experiences, that forever changed her life. She manipulated others and at the same time let others manipulate her.Brick was a jerk, straight up A**hole. He got what he deserved if you a [...]

    26. Dre Battles

      Well in short, this book wasn't exactly my cup of tea. The book had great potential. A great plot, interesting storyline, and new for this genre. The book was very similar to the movie Cruel Intentions.Now you're probably wondering, "what could possible be wrong with this book? It sounds awesome!" The character Jensen (an important character in the book) was not very well developed. When you meet Mr. Jensen Moon he's introduced as a cold, distanced, holier-than-thou type. He seems very standoff- [...]

      Sometimes you just know when a book is going to be worth your time and this one grabs you from the get go! I couldn't put it down and had to read it in one sitting, I was that taken with it! With some books you can feel cheated when they promise sex and instead you get something quite bland. Not so, with Bad Reputation! Hot! Hot! Hot!Apple is who she is and makes no apology for it and I absolutely loved the way she made Brick squirmSecretly, every woman loves having that kind of power over a man [...]

    28. Asia

      2.5 starsthis book had such a great potential, with it's Cruel Intentions story line.Why only 2.5 stars? I found the characters unrelatable, the love story developing way way WAY too quickly- impossibly so, to be honest and the ending just not realisticI found myself screaming at the protagonist at times, being so angry with her I was ready to put the book down and call it a dayBUTI found the prose great, K.B. can write, that's for sure. It just needs polishing. The steamy scenes were brilliant. [...]
