Release Date: August 13, 2018
Small-town girl. America’s Sweetheart.
The biggest popstar in the world
It began with one guy and then the next.
Until my reputation preceeded me.
Yes, I dated them - all of them.
Yes, I also broke up with them. All of them.
Was it too much? The world said yes. Too many, too quickly.
And my star began to flicker.
The world knew nothing about my life and yet, their judgement weighed on me like stone.
My reputation was falling faster than a shooting star and the only way to save it was with the boy who never wanted me.
Zach Parker was a singer, songwriter, and sexy as sin.
To him, I was just the neighbor’s little sister.
A pest that had grown into a famous annoyance.
Zach Parker wanted nothing to do with me.
But he could be tempted - with a stepping stone to fame, that is.
The plan was simple: Childhood Sweethearts Fall in Love on US Tour.
The plan was to let them see what they wanted to see: our ‘romance’ blossom right in front of their eyes.
A romance that Zach had made painfully clear to me years ago would never exist.
I’m told that it was the only thing that could repair my image.
So, every night I’ll stand on that stage and give Zach my heart piece by piece, note by note.
We’ll give them a show they’ll never forget - and a love story that I may not survive.
Because who cares that in order to put my reputation back together, I’ll have to tear my heart apart?
You don't have to be a hardcore 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 song's lyrics into dialogue and creating parts of the whole story. I have to say I was highly intrigued with how the author would pull it off and I am far from disappointed.
This book left me a wreck. A wretched, sobbing, heartbroken mess. Angst lovers and hopeful, starry-eyed romantics will embrace Reputation so hard. It might even play in your...Wildest Dreams.
In a fangirling moment, I've always thought that Ms. Swift's songs aptly painted a picture in the listener's minds. It seems Rebecca Sharp agrees but also felt it was about time that someone embraced the possibilities for the young starlet.
Thank you to both of them for being a bright light in my day.

I've read a lot of books that are set in the music industry so it's always good to find one 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.
Years pass and Blake is the biggest female pop star on the planet but with fame comes the downside. The author gives us a glimpse into the dark side of fame, the crazy fans the press who want to put her down, the hangers on who just use her for fame it's all laid bare for our enjoyment. When one too many bad press stories threaten her success a plan is hatched to show her falling in love in front of the world. The part that nearly sends her running, her lifelong crush will be her new man.
I loved this story Blake is an amazing female lead, she may her knocked down by she gets right back up to fight. Zach didn't make me all happy at the start but as the story progressed i fell in love with this loyal amazing but stupid guy.
Read this book and her a ringside seat to a love story years in the making. A well thought out engaging story.
