From International Bestselling author, Dr. Rebecca Sharp...

Small-town girl. America’s Sweetheart.
The biggest popstar in the world.
It began with one guy and then the next.
Until my reputation preceded me.
Yes, I dated them - all of them.
Yes, I also broke up with them.. All of them.

Confession: I usually avoid rock star romances like the plague. There I said it. I dated a guy all through college who was going to school for music because he thought he was going to be the next big jazz musician. 4 years of that and I'm ALL rock star'd out. However, that being said, I was hesitant to start this book. I read her novella in the Koche Chronicles and immediately knew I wanted to read everything and anything with her name on it. So here we are. And I'm never judging a book by it's ...more

Blake has always followed her heart. She feels strongly and passionately and doesn't allow doubt or insecurity to stop her. So when, at 15 years old, she decided that Zach was meant to be hers, she did everything she could to make it happen. She learned guitar for him. She followed him around like a lost puppy. She sabotaged his relationships and even tried to trick him into affection. And no matter how many times he made it clear that they were NEVER going to happen... she didn't give up. She b ...more

You don't have to be a hard core T Swift fan to appreciate this story. Reputation is merely a glimpse into what could be...

Loving the misunderstood pop star, Blake Tyler, is easy for most. She's America's pop princess. The unlucky in love and her breakups disastrously misconstrued in the tabloids. (Sound familiar?)

Reputation actually brings together lyrics and storylines from a certain pop star's lineup. Weaving the songs lyrics into dialogue and creating parts of the whole story. I have to say

This is my first book by this author and wont be my last. I have been following her for a long time and have two other books of hers on my kindle but had not got around to reading them yet.

I am a sucker for Rockstar books, they are my first choice all the time and I have been dying to read this one and it didn't disappoint. I loved the book from start to finish and never wanted to put it down (but I had to as I have 2 kids under 5 and we moved house).

Completely and utterly BLOWN AWAY! This is my first novel by Rebecca Sharp and I am speechless! The story that she created is one of pain but also one of absolute beauty!

Love is never easy and it shapes us in ways we don’t even know or see and that is 100% truth when it comes to Blake and Zach! This story is so gut wrenchingly beautiful that it will leave a permanent scar on your soul!

I hate writing bad reviews. I know everyone says that but I really do.

This actually started off really good. I loved the premise of the book. America's sweetheart and super rockstar Blake has developed a bit of a reputation for going through too many boyfriends and in an attempt to get her image back on track, her manager has a brilliant idea. The plan is to make it appear she has fallen in love and is able to have a stable relationship and the lucky guy chosen is Zach, her brother's best frien

In my opinion, Rebecca Sharp is one of the new stars in the indie writing world. Her first two books instantly shot up to my favorite reads this year and knowing the story behind this book I was eagerly waiting to start “Reputation”.
This book was different than the Winter Games books, a lot less dark and moody, but great nonetheless. The characters were well developed and easy to fall in love with. Blake Tyler was one of the most real and lovable c

This book left me breathless, crashed my heart more than once and put it slowly back together piece by piece. Reputation is a love fairytale with the potential to rock your world.

I loved every second of reputation—the characters, the heartbreak, the lyrics and how I felt as if I was in the arena right with Blake and Zach. I loved how music played such an important part of their story and I loved their love.

Just from the author's blurb- Because who cares that in order to put my reputation back together, I'll have to rear my heart apart? -you just know that this story is going to turn you inside out. Dr. Rebecca Sharp has done it again in her latest novel, Reputation, with a story of a childhood crush, pop singer, family drama and bad relationships.

This is one of those stories that you will be up all night reading. From th

I was given an ARC in exchange for my honest review:

Wow! Rebecca Sharp does it again! Me to all the headlines regarding Blake Tyler: "Leave Blake alone!"

I think Taylor Swift would be so honored to have such a love story inspired by her. I was rooting for Blake and Zach the whole time and the story and ending are incredibly satisfying.

I highly recommend this book! I love, love, LOVED it!!!!!

I get that the author is a Taylor Swift fan. I’m a fan too. I get that Taylor is her inspiration. Come on, the cover art? The title? You can’t miss it. It’s even on the dedication of the book.

It would’ve been okay for me if Taylor was just the author’s muse. BUT when some lines/scenes are too close to Taylor’s actual lyrics and life, then that’s just not cool anymore. Not for me anyway.

I gave this book three stars for a few reasons, so let me explain.
Blake and Zach have a sweet story. Blake loves her brothers best friend but can't have him. She when she has the opportunity to "fake" date him, she jumps at it.
Of course there is drama and crying and tears in this story.
And overall it was an okay story.
The reason for 3 stars was.....
The story had a slow start. I struggled to get into it. I did enjoy the last 30% of it a lot.

Blake Taylor is a pop singing super star from Franklin, TN. When her string of failed relationships begins to tear down her good girl image she is forced to take desperate measures in order to maintain her favorable reputation. That desperate measure comes in the form of one ex Alabama football player turned singer Zach Parker. Forced into faking a stable relat

I've read a lot of books that are ser in the music industry so it's always good go find with a twist and more accurately reflecting the role women now have.

Young love that first crush is never easy to get over but when he's in your life constantly there's no hiding place. Blake has crushed on Zach for years in her youthful naivety she's made her feelings known, she's made a play for him and been humiliated every time.

Full disclosure I am a huge Taylor fan ;) like I recite the words to the titles. ;)
I really wasn’t sure if I was going to like all the song titles I thought oh this might get too cheesy, but it was done in such a way that you find yourself enjoying it.

I loved the writing, I think this is a first for me by this writer and I will tell you I will be looking for more. Its low on drama but big on love which I love.

"What we had was so damn real that all she could ever be was my fantasy."

I didn't read the synopsis before reading this book, so I had no idea what it was about. Once I started, I couldn't put it down. Dr. Rebecca Sharp did an amazing job of captivating me with Blake's character and forgetting that the muse of this story may be Taylor Swift. I really enjoyed getting snippets of Blake and Zach's shared past and memories. As well, their chemistry was exquisitely written.

All the characters were great! and I really hope there's a book to come about her brother Ash!

This is the first book that I’ve read from Rebecca Sharp and it definitely won’t be the last! I love the main character, Blake Tyler, and that she’s so honest and easy to read. While she is a bit self-destructive when it comes to love, I enjoyed watching her character really grow throughout the book. Her love interest Zach is the classic tortured bad boy that she’s holding a candle for. He’s good looking, the brothers best friend, talented and

"I'd loved Zach Parker with every fiber of my eight-year-old body, and every cell that had grown in it since only magnified the obsession."

For someone who has read thousands of books, I'm pretty stingy about calling a book a 'favorite'. As readers, we all have certain things that tick our favorite boxes, right? Well, music is a favorite theme for me so I'm especially drawn to those stories. Rebecca Sharp is a fairly new-to-me author but she's blown me away every time I've opened one of her b

Great writing, but...

I could have loved this book, instead I’m frustrated. Nowhere in the description did it state that this isn’t really an original story. It’s Taylor Swift fan fiction, I personally am not a fan of fan fiction. Everything down to using her song lyrics. The title of the book hinted at it, but I thought it was a reference to the similarities, not a parallel of her life. The author did a disservice to herself, it made it very difficult for me to focus on and enjoy the story. I’m

This is a fantastic well written rock star story that I couldn’t get enough of. Blake and Zachary sure put me through the wringer with this one. Some brilliant secondary characters as well. Big thumbs up from me.

So I am late to the game when it comes to this series. having only started Ms. Sharp's books not long ago and loving them I may add, I was intrigued to see what this one had instore and read the blurb? Of course, I wanted to read this and just like her other books this was extremely well written, the plot was strong and kept my attention from the start. This was forbidden, it was a second-chance, rockstar and a few other tropes thrown in there. It was packed full of all sorts, and I loved it.

Well for one I love the artist this reminds me of and two this was pretty good. A little slow paced with the back forth between Blake and Zach. Blake never hid her feelings for Zach and Zach well he was committed to her brother to never go there with Blake no matter what. But when Blake needs help Zach is the perfect guy for the job.

Being in the public eye did not help anything or maybe it did? The romance that blooms between the two was always in the making.
