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 setup. 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?
Bad Rep was one of my favorite stories when I first started reading NA/YA books- Bad Rep happened to be my go back read many times-so to have a chance to listen to it on audio wouldnt be uncommon for me to re-listen. Maysie is our main girl in the story- told from Maysie’s point of view, a twenty year old college junior who falls head-over-heels for her sexy, off-limits coworker Jordan Levitt. Jordan was hot. Like ridiculously hot. One minute he’s all sweet hot rock god and the next he is douche with a girlfriend asking another girl out! However, when you leave this book you will fall in love with Jordan as much as I did. You felt the need to always protect Maysie from these crazy sorority girls that keep attacking her, and you almost want her to leave college- .. As you can tell this book was FILLED with drama! You have Gossip, girl fights, drama… all of it and is perfect read for anyone who likes the NA genre. Jordan and Maysie’s journey to love and trust far out shines all the annoying drama. Their attraction was immediate and their romance was insanely hot!
The Narrator Madeleine Lambert had good speed, had a full range of voices and overall had a nice performance.
