"Bad Rep" by A. Meredith Walters

My Book Summary : Maysie finds that her shopping habits have gotten worse when her parents inform her that they are no longer paying for her credit card bill, especially now that she's about $3,500 in debt. Therefore, to pay it off she gets a second job for the summer as a waitress at a local bar.

While working there she meets Jordan, one of the hot bartenders who is also the President in one her college's fraternities--Pi Sig--and a fantastic drummer in a band called Generation Rejects, a guy who she has an instant attraction and connection with that is very much reciprocated!

You would think everything would be fine for their budding relationship .... right?

Well, that might be true if he didn't already have a girlfriend! Especially one who he has dated for over three years and happens to be Maysie's sorority--Chi Delta--President!

However, can they overcome their desire to be together so no one will be hurt? Or will everything in their lives fall apart because of their connection?

My Book Review : 4 out of 5 stars! See how two people who have an instant connection to each other deal with the difficulties that happen when they want someone that they can't have yet cannot seem to say no too. Even though you don't wish this situation on anyone, you can't help but root for Maysie & Jordan and wish the best for them. They're wonderful together. However, I did get annoyed with Maysie at times, because of how she kept running from Jordan when the times get tough. Yet I did understand her reasoning and I'm happy with how the novel played out--from beginning to end.

I recommend this to anyone who likes contemporary romances, especially ones that have a LOT of drama and are a bit erotic.

- On a side note -
I loved Maysie's close friends, Jordan's band members, and the employees at the bar--all of them were great secondary characters and I hope that they might get their own novels at some point. *crossing fingers*

Plus, I LOVED the snarky & humorous commentary!!

Author's Novel Extras : An interview I did... | A Little Look at Jordan | Jordan is a January book boyfriend!!!

Book Teaser(s) :
“My friends here want to apply for the wait staff positions. Jordan, this is Maysie Ardin and Riley Walker. Guys, this is Jordan Levitt.”
“Charmed.” Riley deadpanned before taking the paper from his hand. Jordan smirked then handed the other one to me.
“Here ya go, Maysie,” he said, his eyes twinkling; as though he knew how much it turned me on to hear him say my name.
I cleared my throat a few times before answering with a shaky, “thanks.”
He looked at me a few more seconds and I felt my cheeks start to flush. I always seemed to blush at the most inopportune moments. My face was hot and I knew I had turned a bright red.
“Jordan! Are you going to start tending bar tonight?” Jaz asked and I suddenly found my friend's voice grating. I finally understood why Riley found her so annoying. Jordan stopped looking at me and turned to Jaz.
“Yeah, Moore put me on the schedule from seven until close. I'm pretty stoked.” Jaz squealed again. I had to suppress my eye roll, which took significant effort.
Jaz turned to Riley and me as we started filling out the applications. “Jordan just got bumped up to bartender. He's going to be great!” she gushed, pressing herself close to him again.
“Jeesh, is she going to start dry humping him next?” Riley whispered under her breath, shooting a look in their direction. I laughed quietly.
“It's starting to feel like a low budget porno in here. Just cue the cheesy 70' s background music. Bow chick-a-wow-wow,” I whispered back, trying to discreetly watch the pair as they talked. ~ within Chapter 1
“Well, considering it's usually me in a fetal position on the couch, I don't envy you. But I must say, it's not like you to over indulge. I've never seen you like this. So what gives?” I ask her.
“Stupid boys,” Riley muttered and my smile became even wider.
“Did you go out with a boy last night, Riley?” I goaded. She gave me the middle finger.
“Yeah, I hung out with Damien and a bunch of his friends after work. I got a little too drunk. Who knew a Green Eyed Monster was so vile coming back up.” Her face had gone pale.
“Well, no wonder you feel like shit. Everclear is some hard shit if you're not used to drinking.” I pointed out.
“Says the girl with the pickled liver,” Riley snarked. I ignored her, knowing she was feeling touchy.
“So, you and Damien, huh?” I asked, watching her to make sure she finished the toast.
Riley shrugged. “We've hung out a few times,” she said.
My eyes widened in surprise. “You have? What happened to not dating guys you work with?” I asked, giving her a smug smile.
Riley shrugged again. “Yeah, well my advice sucks. Forget about the shit I say. I know nothing,” she said sarcastically. I snorted. ~ within Chapter 8
“Is it a crime to want to fuck my girlfriend within an inch of her life?” he asked as he pulled his boxers and pants back up around his hips. I pushed my hair back off of my face and pressed my cold hands against my flushed cheeks.
“Not at all, it was just sort of sudden,” I replied as the sex euphoria started to fade. Damn, had he seriously just screwed my brains out behind a dilapidated old shed in the middle of a party? Yes. Yes he had.
Jordan kissed my mouth. “You're so fucking hot, Mays. When another guy comes on to you, it drives me crazy. You're my girl.” I grinned. Who knew that Jordan Levitt was as insecure as I was? It was oddly reassuring.
He clasped my hand and we headed back to the party. Luckily no one seemed to notice we were missing. ~ within Chapter 22
