    Favorite quotes from the book: Max- Today, yes. Consider me your rally boy. Reece- I mean, I know I almost died but tell that to my dick! By far my favorite of the BHPA books!!! This has EVERYTHING in it! Four gorgeous, stubborn, amazing guys, steamy scenes, a different sort of bullying and one amazing leading lady. I love how Abi is so new to literally everything but she still learns how to be her own person and to trust her instincts rather the what she has been hearing.

I love how Abi is so new to literally everything but she still learns how to be her own person and to trust her instincts rather the what she has been hearing. The guys are so amazing yet so different from one another but they compliment each other which I love. And there was SO MANY steamy/sexual scenes in this that was pure perfection. The fact that we got more of certain characters from the first BHPA was just an added bonus! This was the perfect love story! I’m ready for book 3!

    I’m in love! This story, while a light-bully story, has the tendency to feel lighthearted. Love heavy, Abi builds her relationships slowly and surely. Heartbreak abounds, but the HEA is there, with a twist I wasn’t expecting. ;) total recommend!

    I really enjoyed book one of the Beverly Hills Prep Academy, but after reading The Reputation, I don't know which one I love more!!! Even though this is a series, they read well to be a standalone. I would recommend reading in order though. Also, I do believe this one is a bit more bully, and to one so sweet and strong as Abi. But Ms. Adams does a great job of creating characters that stand out. A plot that holds the readers attention, and a fast paced that will have you at the end of the book b I really enjoyed book one of the Beverly Hills Prep Academy, but after reading The Reputation, I don't know which one I love more!!!

Ali and the guys, Reece, Pryce and Chaz each have their own issues to work through and Ali is the key. Yes there is steam, and yes the guys have to work for Abi's hand. I also really love the message that no one is perfect, we all make mistakes and maybe we could all use one such as Abi in our lives. Bring on book three!!!

    I have read all of the books written by this author and this one was my favorite, so far. I was a little frustrated in the beginning with character behaviors and reactions but it didn't last long. By the end, the characters were my favorite part of this read. Other aspects that I enjoyed were the pacing and interesting twists. What I didn't enjoy as much was the quickness with which the characters were claiming they loved each other and the lack of satisfaction from some of the villains not gett I have read all of the books written by this author and this one was my favorite, so far.

I was really anticipating some payback! Overall, this was an enjoyable read that I would recommend.

    Another excellent read from Melissa Adams. Loved the story of Abi, Reece, Pryce, and Chaz. Each character has trauma/flaws that causes mistrust in their relationship with Abi. But Abi has a strength and she perseveres, healing all 3 guys as well as finding the truth behind the cause of their mistrust. I really like these characters. The story flows well, the characters are well developed, there is plenty of steam and the ending is full of redemption, another plus in my book.

    Wow!! I mean this was a bit more “bully” than the first and really I don’t think my heart can take much more. At least I thought I couldn’t until I kept reading and each chapter sucks me in deeper. I couldn’t get enough of it. If I were in Abi’s shoes, I would have walked away. Everyone else be damned, but she’s the epitome of understanding and patience. The guys all have different levels of adoration from me. Reese was the hardest one to reconcile with, but in the end so worth it. Honestly blow Wow!! I mean this was a bit more “bully” than the first and really I don’t think my heart can take much more.

    This book literally started off as a complete page turner I just spent every free second I had reading until I finished. Abi... what can I say I only aspire to have as much patience and understanding as she did towards her men. Books like this just put life into perspective for me in the sense that no one person is perfect and that we all make errors in judgement. Life is about learning from mistakes and practicing forgiveness.

    Wow where do I even start! I started this book and finished it in less the a day. If you don’t have this book you need it! If you like books with characters that make your heart break and also warm you’ll love Abi and the guys! This is book two and there is some character cross over from book one so I would suggest reading book one just so you know the backstory and how the characters fit into everything. You will seriously fall in love with this story and these characters! If you one click you Wow where do I even start! I started this book and finished it in less the a day.

I never thought I would like bully books but the way these are written are amazing. They are not over the top but are actually realistic. Abi is a great main character and her back story is great. She’s kinda naive when she starts out but has a great heart and changes the guys lives. Don’t want to give to much away so just know that this book is a must read and will not leave you disappointed.!

    I completely fell in love with this book. Theres drama, hot guys, family mess, and so much more in this book. The guys are very hot and they show alot of emotion but Chaz is my favorite of the guys, he is an ex rockstar. Every chapter will pull you further into the book keeping you on the edge of your seat, it flows very smooth and it's very easy to read. I definitely recommend this book to everyone.

Melissa’s writing is so enthralling and completely addictive I am truly a convert, and can’t wait for book 3.Aubrey is a fantastic character, on the outside sounds and looks innocent but she’s hiding a completely different side to her it just needs revealing 😘 and her harem of men are amazing, totally loved this storyline and it left me wanting more !!

    Fab ! There were so many layers to the characters in this ... it actually took me a bit to like some of the MCs , but that’s actually the best part ! I was angry at some of the characters .... fictional characters ... that’s a testament to great writing , that the author was able to pull emotions out of a reader for essentially ‘pretend’ people ! I enjoyed this book and the road the characters had to travel to find love and redemption , great read !

    LOVED IT!!!!!!!!!!!!! These books are soooooo awesome!!!!! Abi is such a wonderful heroine! She’s sweet, kind, and so beautiful that the guys can’t help loving her even when they don’t trust her. The sexy times in this book are so hot and well written you’ll definitely want to read them more than once!!! I want them all Reece, Pryce, Chaz, and Max!!!!!!!!

    Refreshing ! What can I say about The reputation.. yes it is labelled as bully romance but it is so much more than that. It’s a story of people learning to trust again after having been deceived. It’s a story about learning to let go of the negative things people that don’t know you say about you and most of all it’s a story that clearly confirms that love conquers all !

    Another great book from Melissa Adams. I fell in love with Abi and her guys. This book is full of drama. I love how Melissa is able to make me feel what her characters are feeling. I laughed, I cried, I cheered and I wanted to commit murder a few times.

    Well written book about how love can change you and heal something you don't even know is broken. The characters aren't always nice, but they change for the better through the story.

    I made it to 15% and had to stop. Another book I'm doing for a reader challenge that I just can't get into. Maybe they should have started with the 1st book. Not sure why they didn't and I believe it would be better if they did. I made it to 15% and had to stop. Another book I'm doing for a reader challenge that I just can't get into.

    I loved Abi’s story! This was an awesome follow up to The Initiation. This is a stand-alone and can be read without reading the first book, but is set in the same “world”. The Reputation is a light bully RH High School Romance. I love Abi, Max, Reece, Chaz, and Pryce! I really liked the storyline of their relationship! Another awesome and unique story from Melissa Adams! Looking forward to reading the next book in this series.

    The reputation Where I loved the previous book, I'm not a big fan of this one, mainly because I could not get into the characters. The female main character is a bit of a doormat really. She just goes along with some really questionable demands from the male MC's and they all fall too hard too fast, which in this scenario made me feel like they were lacking maturity. It's an entertaining read for sure, but it needed some more development to work for me.

    For the beginning of the book, I wanted to take Abi and shake some sense into her. She might have been living at a convent but she really was way too naive and the guys were idiots and jerks. BUT once she started to learn about the real world, I was so much more invested in the story of Abi and her A-team. I understand that her naivety is what makes the story make sense and allows her to not be the girl that the guys accuse her to be but she really went from nun to experienced in a short amount For the beginning of the book, I wanted to take Abi and shake some sense into her.

    I totally read this through the night ending a harrowing 15 minutes before my alarm! I seriously could not put it down! I loved this book just as much as the first one. I hold on to my statement, that these are the best by Melissa Adams so far. I am looking VERY much forward to the last one and hope it won't be too long. The characters are well written and the storyline is good. This is the second book in this series. They can all be read as stand-alone, but there are some cross-references.

    This book was definitely amazing. In the last couple days I read Initiation and Reputation. If you have read Initiation and enjoyed it you will LOVE Reputation. The characters are unique compared to similar books. They feel real and genuine and are completely relatable. The book is a roller coaster of emotions in the best way possible. I laughed, got angry, and even cried. I don’t put any spoiled in here but it is a MUST read! Melissa has outdone herself this time!
