Bad Rep (Bad Rep, #1)

Bad Rep (Bad Rep, #1) - A. Meredith Walters “Holy bad boy Batman!” ― A. Meredith Walters, Bad RepI really, really wanted to like this book. It had all of my requirements: tattooed musician, feisty female, and a dash of drama. I've never really read anything that had to deal with the Greek system, so that detail intrigued me. I thought it would be more Easy style with the Greek sisters rising up to support Maysie when her reputation was being trashed. I was really disappointed to see that it played the more Mean Girls attitude. Felt more compassionate sisters could have added more depth. All in all, I believe this read lacked substance. I couldn't connect with any of the characters at all. They felt stiff and fake, and I truly hate saying that. I hate disliking books. I don't think there was really any true conflict, it mostly felt like drama for the sake of drama, cheap thrills. Most of the book, I honestly skipped through to see the end, hoping that it would pull a Charade and get really good at the end, but I was largely disappointed. Some of the word choices bugged me. For instance: “But tell me, Mays, why is it that all I can fucking think about is you? Why am I so eager to take another guy's head off for touching you? Why is it when I lay in bed at night I wish it was you there beside me?” ― A. Meredith Walters, Bad RepSome of the dialogue seemed forced. What dude says eager? It wasn't horrible, but I prefer to be emotionally impacted in some way when I've read something and this just didn't do it for me, though others can certainly disagree. For a casual, skimming read, it does the job, for anything else not so much. Visit my blog for more reviews and recommendations!Join the Miss Construed Review's Facebook community!
