Coy Mason is a jerk.

If there is one truth that Bellamy Davenport knows, it’s that. Hands-down. (Well, that and the fact that she didn’t mean to hurt him. Physically. Coy can’t be hurt emotionally because he doesn’t have a heart.)

Coy is not just the small-town, literal boy-next-door. He’s a heartbreaking, womanizing, mischief-making (and delicious) man and was all of those

Adriana Locke never fails to surprise me with her layers characters and smart dialogue. Reputation is amazingly funny, heartfelt, and chock full of small town characters who grab you from page one! Bravo! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

I honestly don’t know where to begin.

Coy was somewhat what I had imagined him to be, he was cocky with a charming personality but what I hadn’t expected was the size of his heart. He had the most incredible genuine kindness that he swooned his way straight into my heart.

While Coy had a piece of my heart, Bellamy had a piece of my soul. I shared so much with her it felt as though my past was playing out on the pages before me through someone else’s eyes. She was all sass and closed off because sh

I have read all of Adriana’s books and she is by far one of my favorite authors. She has a way of creating characters who pull you in with their sheer...”real-ness”. I always know when I pick up one of her books it’s going to be good. That being said I’ve never had a “favorite” until now! I was halfway through and had laughed, cried my eyes out and mentally yelled at both main characters. I think Bellamy is my soul sister. She is so rough and has this hard exterior but it’s all for legitimate re ...more

„Love will always find you. You just have to trust the process. And that’s only possible when you trust the person you love.”

Adriana Locke delivered a heart-warming love story that not only makes you swoon but it also entertains. Reputation is a book that’s easy to read, and the characters are so wonderful that it’s impossible not to like them. The family aura that surrounds this story makes you feel like you are among your loved ones, and the whole plot becomes close to your heart. No wonde

Coy and Bellamy! What a way to start 2021! I couldn’t picture a better book to start the new year with! These two are oil and water but the heat they create together just burns through the pages and my gosh the angst is glorious!!

I love a book with some yummy angst and Adriana definitely captures that in this beautiful book! I love how she writes love! It’s not easy, or simple! Love is laced with loss, and pain! What makes it worth it though in the end are the little moments when everything cli

5 Star review of Reputation (Mason Family #2) by Adriana Locke

I was excited to dive in to Reputation by Adriana Locke as I love her writing. From start to finish I was riveted and had a hard time putting this book down when real life got in the way.

Reputation was well written and full of love, romance, laughter and is a second chance, friends to enemies to lovers story about Coy Mason and Bellamy Davenport. I really liked Coy and Bellamy, both separately and together. From the first chapter to t

Ahh my romance reader heart is full! 💕

Adriana Locke continues to be one of my favorite writers and if you read any of her books, you’ll quickly see why. I love the worlds she creates, but more than that, it’s her casts of characters and amazing book families that have me falling in love with every word.

I LOVE the Masons! Such a fun, loud, huge, overwhelming, loving group of characters I can’t get enough of. Reputation is Coy’s story and it’s easy to love him because he’s a gorgeous, charming co

Reputation is kind of a childhood friends to lovers/enemies to lovers/rockstar romance? It's a series about brothers and who they fall for, and this was Coy's story.

The beginning of this was interesting to me, because Coy thought they were just bantering and at first was clueless to the fact that, no, Bellamy was straight up ticked at him. Fuming mad, didn't want to be around him at all. I assume he didn't realize because he's been so busy being famous. And when you see how out of his own contro

Oh boy Coy and Bellamy's book is full of the feels. I loved the arguing and tension in the beginning between them, it all only sparked their sexual tension that much more. Coy is so much more than just a Nashville music star, and he proves that in this book. He's the boy next door who likes to get into some old fashioned trouble. But when it comes down to being serious, he has all his brothers to turn to for help. Another great book by Adriana who has an talent for making me fall in love with he ...more

Two hearts wanting to fall in love and be fully committed to each other...but Bell's heart can't do heartbreak again. Not after all of her previous ones- losing her mom, her dad's cancer scare, and then Coy breaking her heart and leaving her. But when he comes back into Bellamy's life, she refuses to let him in. She hates him. There's no way she sees a future with him.

But Coy is determined to help Bellamy change her mind and convince her to let him in. And when things get

Adriana Locke is an absolute queen when it comes to family saga books. I adored her Landry family series and it honestly looks like the Mason family are going to match it in every way.
Coy & Bellamy’s story is an enemies to lovers romance - one of my favorite tropes. They were great friends growing up but after being let down by Coy several times Bellamy stopped putting herself through the emotional ups and downs and kept her distance.
Every character added so much to this story and the minor stor
Jan 02, 2021 rated it it was amazing
My goodness does Adriana know how to make you feel. There is a fine line between love and hate, especially in Coy and Bell’s instance. Your heart absolutely shatters for Bell and Coy makes it melt. The chemistry between these two is hott and silly and I loved it so much. Was a great quick read, that I couldn’t put down!

After finishing this story I needed a moment to gather my thoughts because the emotions that were awaken in me were so strong I was a sobbing mess.

It was frightening to realize how much similar Bellamy and I were. I too am the one who is the strongest in my family. Everyone who has a problem turn to me because (and I quote) i can take the burden. It broke my heart when she was secretly crying by the pool.

There is nothing better than starting a book and being swept right away into their world as if you belong there. Adriana Locke did that for me with Reputation.

It's fun, it's flirty, and it hit me right in the feels! It's more emotional than I'm used to from Adriana but it's all good - she just added an element that I'm not used to from her.

If you've read Restraint or The Relationship Pact, then you've met Coy Mason and Bellamy Davenport and were probably salivating for this story l

I loved this story! It has a bunch of my favourite troupes; second chance romance, enemies to lovers, friends to lovers, boy next door romance. It was suspenseful and so full of emotion with a happily ever after in more ways than one. I highly recommend this small town romance from the Mason family.

Fab, angsty read!

"Even though my disdain for this man is ten-for-ten, my stomach flip flops. It didn't get the memo."

Bellamy Davenport and Coy Mason always had a special connection since childhood and were the best of friends. He was her first everything. However, a few years ago, Coy pretty much broke Bellamy's heart and she's hated him ever since.

"I'm just a crazy guy who's always had a thing for the hot, beautiful, and sexy girl next door."

Coy's not really sure what changed between them. The

Wow, this book took me on a rollercoaster of emotions! My romance reader heart is happy. Reputation is fun, engaging and beautifully heartbreaking, all at the same time. Adriana Locke has crafted the perfect story line of angst, passion, tears, some heartbreak and lots of love.

Coy and Bellamy’s story is fun, flirty and heartbreaking, yet heartwarming as we watch these two on their journey. I adored the connection and chemistry between them, it was full of wit, laughs, well placed sarcasm and the

This story had all kinds of feels! Coy and Bellamy had a difficult relationship. Once best friends, but actually something broke them apart. I really fell in love with Bellamy's tough exterior but also the fact she needed someone but her side. Coy was a lot more than I thought he'd be. He was so unsure of himself despite being a huge star. But I really enjoyed his growth through the story. The whole story itself was funny, steamy at times, and full of emotions that'll make you feel them right al ...more

I loved Coy & Bells! This book took me through all of the emotions. There were times I was angry, sad, and oh so happy. It’s amazing how Adriana makes you feel like you are truly a part of these families - or at least someone in the same town. I always feel like I know her characters and this was no different.

5 Stars for this heartbreaking romance!

WOW ... I finished this book last night, but this is one of those books that I had to let sit for a bit after I was done because as soon as I thought about it, I would start crying again. This was a very emotional read because I could relate to what Bellamy went through with her dad's cancer ... as my mother died from cancer 5 years ago and this book brought all those feelings right back! ... Annnnddd I'm crying again!

Coy Mason thought he had life all figured out until it was uprooted by a scandal he didn’t even want. Funny how sometimes in life you are thrown a curve ball (an sometimes it hits you in the face haha) an puts you exactly where you need to be.

The story is as old as time girl falls in love with the boy next door but refuses to make it known ~ yet the boy next door has fallen for her too. Coy & Bellamy both knew they loved each other there whole lives and when they finally

Totally angsty and emotional read.

I was given an ARC for my honest opinion of this book and I couldn't have been more pleased with the emotional journey of these characters.

This book was extra emotional for me since this book deals with a certain cancer that I lost a family member to not very long ago. So I had very hard emotions reading the dialog referencing the journey of the patient but with that being said this book had a lot of bantering and steamy angsty moments to make up for the parts

“There will come a day when you just know. And then it’s over”

After reading The Relationship Pact, I knew I had to read Reputation for Coy and Bellamy’s story and find out what had happened that made Bellamy hate Coy so much. Their story was even more heartfelt and emotional than I could have imagined. Coy and Bellamy had been best friends, but as Coy’s music career made him a star, Bellamy was left behind.

Another hit out of the park for one of my favorite authors, Adriana Locke!! This one had me more emotional than some of the others and for that I would say this is on the list as one of my all time favorites of hers. I am completely and utterly impressed with Bellamy!!!! She is not only the definition of a "strong-women" she embodies it heart and soul. She is always the one that people seek out for help and advice yet she knows not how to ask for help herself.

Nothing like starting the year off dropping tears into my kindle. Adriana is always bringing something new to the table. And she didn’t disappoint in Reputation.

Coy. Mason.

Basically. The man, the myth and the legend all wrapped into one person. Not to mention a sexy, panty dropping music sensation. Who knew he’d pined for the girl next door all his life.

Bellamy. AKA my soul sista

She’s tough. Determined. And so mad the Coy she can’t see straight... or can she? She’s loved the boy next door si
