REPUTATION (Mason Family #2) by Adriana Locke
Release Date: January 5th
Add to Goodreads:
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 things well before he became a hot-shot country music sensation.
He’s a dream standing in her doorway with no shirt, messy hair, and a ‘Do you wanna?’ grin. But he’s also a nightmare for her heart and she knows it.
Their enemies-to-lovers relationship always ends the same way—heavy on the enemies, light on the lovers.
So why is she still standing there?
Coy and Bellamy are a great way to start out this new year. This is the second book in the Mason Family series, but it can be read as a complete standalone. You do not need to read the first book to enjoy this one. We got to see these characters in The Relationship Pact also. If you’ve read those, then you know the relationship is strained between Coy and Bellamy at the start.
This book has so many tropes rolled into one. It’s a friends to lovers/second chance/enemy to lovers/boy next door romance. I know that sounds like a lot, but the path that their relationship takes is captivating. You will love the tension between them as they fight as much as when they aren’t fighting. After each layer of their story is revealed, you will fall in love with each of them and them together even more.
This story is funny and sexy. What I wasn’t expecting was how emotional it was. It has all the feels, and we need all the feels for this story. There were parts that hit me and I was sobbing. This story has some very real and raw moments. In true Adriana Locke fashion, you get all of the big family dynamics too. I can’t wait to see what happens with the rest of this family. This book and this series is worth reading.
