Bad Girl Reputation
by Elle Kennedy
Pub Date – 10/4/22
Coming back to her hometown after a year and the sudden passing of her mother. So much has changed and she is trying to turn over a new leaf. But her attraction to her ex that she ghosted is still strong.
Genevieve had a really rough night and took off to a different town for a year. I totally get why she did that. I had a rough night in my hometown but I didn’t live there so I just didn’t drink there for awhile and didn’t drink for awhile. It takes a lot of reflection to process when you feel you caused a whole trainwreck of problems.
But when she comes back and sees her sweetheart again, who is really just her soulmate she doesn’t want to fall into that person anymore. He then goes on a mission to show her that he is worth it and will support her decisions. Kind of turns into a love triangle as she dates two guys who “will the best man win’s” her. And both are good options for her.
Though at the end the person they matched the one who ended up alone with was perfect.
Ugh that Sheriff was a toxic piece of trash. And using his authority to get her arrested or get her alone. Yuck – that’s what I am always scared of – I hate corruption. Society doesn’t work unless all the pieces are playing by the same rules.

❓ Do you read or listen to books while you do stuff or exercise?
I was just talking to someone the other day that I have to listen to a book so my internal list of randomness doesn’t distract me from work or what I’m trying to focus on. The fact that I can focus on a storyline and a work task is another thing😆

✨ Progress update: I’m a lb away from losing 10 lbs but hubs has already lost 20+. Ugh guys😆 But I feel so much stronger and my chronic neck issues are a lot less painful. Exercise, who knew?!

About the Book:
*USA Today bestseller*

Bestselling author Elle Kennedy returns to Avalon Bay in this sexy second chance story about two exes who can’t stay away from each other, Bad Girl Reputation.

When former bad girl Genevieve West returns home for her mother’s funeral, she’s prepared to keep her distance from her ex-boyfriend, Evan Hartley. Their history is rife with turbulence. And passion. A heck of a lot of passion…which she’s trying desperately to forget.

But it’s impossible not to run into Evan in the small coastal town where they once ran wild. And the moment she sees her gorgeous ex again, it’s clear to Gen that Evan is still as unruly, sexy, and irresistible as ever. This time around, however, she’s resolved to walk a new path. No more partying. No more foolish mistakes. Her plan is to temporarily remain in town to help her father run his business, but the second he finds somebody else, she’s out of there.

Evan has other ideas. He knows they can be good together, but he just has to convince Genevieve of that, even if it means turning over a new leaf himself. But can a bad reputation ever truly be shed? Do second chances really work? Genevieve and Evan are about to find out.

Thank you stmartinspress and netgalley for the e-ARC for my honest and voluntary review.
