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

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!

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

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

"She thought I was ripping through her heart when the truth was that I was carving out my own."

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 knew I loved Zach from the moment I realized that it was only he who seemed to have the missing pieces to my heart."

Blake and Zach are two characters that easily pull you into their world. Into their love, their denial, the

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.

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 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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Reputation is a second chance-forbidden love-fake relationship-rock star romance. Yeah, it's a tall order, but Sharp fills it beautifully with her poetic writing, alpha hero, and admirable heroine.

There are many things that Sharp does well, but bringing us the angsty goodness is probably my favorite. Blake wears her heart on her sleeve, and Zach does what he thinks he has to in order to protect it, even if his actions are a little misguided...he has good intentions. Blake and Zach give us all t

I have been trying to write this review for a week now but couldn't come up with the words needed to do Zach and Blake justice. That's when I realized there were no words to describe them, they are just that amazing.
I was apprehensive about this book as I'm not a T Swift fan but that didn't matter in the slightest. This book won me over! I might even be her fan now!
Back to the book...

Are you an author looking for some alpha a-holes to write? Trying to find the balance between jerk and bully? Are you a reader looking for your next butt head to fall in love with? Tired of the guy that isn't really an a-hole but is just bullying the heroine? Are you a blogger, looking for a romance that is new, and doesn't fit into any category you've read before? Look no further, because Reputation is here. 



This is a second chance, forbidden, rock star romance, but not in the usual ways. Blake

I’ve been majorly binging on rock star books lately and I was super excited about my first book by Rebecca Shape being just that, but where I normally read about a male rock star its more focused on a female one.

Blake and Zach's relationship was built on a lie, but the love they had for one another was apparent from the first page.



Blake is vulnerable from being in the public eye. She is trying to make everyone happy and not being her true self.



Zach is trying to make his band famous. He also is trying to keep all his past promises even when they seem impossible.



I loved these two together in this book and the Taylor Swift vibe it had.

And Rebecca did it again, I am definitely fan-girling...
Blake is a loyal and real girl and later a woman, who is constantly commented in public, in press. That leads to inevitable situation where she has to fake her relationship with her first and only true crush/love, Zack. She was left heartbroken after his graduation from high school, but out came her songs and her singing career.
After nine years her reputation is in danger because of press commenting on their perspective of her ex-boyfriend

Reputation is an amazing book that has left me with a book hangover as I struggle with the emotional whiplash left by Blake and Zach. Rebecca Sharp has created a book that moves between light, fun moments that pay tribute to a star to heartrending scenes that show the price of fame.
