(ARC) Bad Reputation (Bad Boys of Sports #1) by Nicole Edwards

33871822

Synopsis:

Meet the most wanted players in sports . . . one ridiculously hot alpha male at a time.

Chase: With a nickname like “Sin,” it’s no wonder they call me the bad boy of hockey. Opponents curse me. Fans scream my name—in the arena and in other, much more private places. Penalties or not, I’m not afraid to dish out a little pain. But pleasure? That’s my weakness. And no one knows it better than my best friend, Cassie Desrosiers. I’d have to be blind not to notice her rocking body and teasing grin. So when she invites me along on a trip to Vegas, my curiosity isn’t the only thing that’s aroused.

Cassie: Chase Barrett is a world-class A-hole. As his best friend, I’m allowed to call him on his BS. Who else is going to do it? Certainly not the puck bunnies swooning at every flex of his biceps. Everyone knows that Chase is the love-’em-and-leave-’em type. There’s no such thing as commitment for the king of casual hookups. So why should I care? Maybe because all work and no play makes me a sexually frustrated girl. It’s time to put the hockey stud at my beck and call to good use . . . but after a week in Vegas with Chase, I might never want to go back to the real world.

Review:

5stars
OH LORD ABOVE! THIS. BOOK.

I fucking love best friends turned lovers stories. Only sometimes they don’t reach up to my expectations, sometimes they’re too much or just too plain. Bad Reputation was fucking PERFECT! I COULD. NOT. PUT. IT. DOWN. That’s how good it was.

Chase Barrett. This man. Oh. I swear this man had me falling in love from the first page.


Chase is the bad boy of hockey and is known as Sin by his opponents and his fans. He was raised by his dads, Chief and Dad and has been best friends with Cassie for nine years. She’s his rock and vice versa. Chase has always found Cassie attractive and beautiful inside out but Cassie had made it very clear that their relationship did not go above anything other than best friends and Chase was okay with that. When Cassie invites him to Vegas, he jumps on board and BAM! WHAM!
Oh lord this man had me swooning. He was so sweet and funny and sexy and oh my gawwdd gimme, GIMMIE!… please?

Cassie Desrosiers, girly you.


Cassie works as the vice president at some high tech company, or shall I say techno company as Chase called it. She is used to seeing Chase being flocked by puck bunnies and she’s fine with it… only she lets Chase know what she really thinks of his player ways. Now, Cassie is no stranger to sex or men but she is kind of a prude. She doesn’t really do the whole casual sex and move to the next like her best friend.
But when things start to heat up between her and Chase in Vegas, she starts to question where things will lead. Chase doesn’t do relationships. She does not want to jeopardise their friendship.


I loved Chase and Cassie’s relationship. I loved how strong it was and how comfortable they were with each other. This was a real one and I wish I could read it for the first time again. I will definitely reread Bad Reputation and enjoy it just as much.

Nicole Edwards, you never cease to amaze me. Thank you for giving me Chase Barrett. I shall love him always.

Bad Reputation by Nicole Edwards is expected to be released on October 3rd 2017. Go. Get it. You won’t be disappointed.
