Reputation A hacker exposes secrets the cat is out of the bag for all those who have their private emails exposed for all to see This book had some Mr Robot a T.V series vibes I loved the series and the chaos the hackers would unleash In the book, a prominent surgeon, Greg Strausser is murdered Could it be some kind of payback or revenge Maybe he pissed someone off Who has a motive Greg s wife, Kit was pretty upset over his indiscretion And who is this Lolita person Plenty of secrets in this soap opera of a who dunnit I enjoyed the way the author weaved the story with many suspects that could have done it Some good cliff hangers and twists This one kept me guessing and changing my mind as to who the villain was Just enough U turns to keep my engaged Thanks to NG for my review copy This one is out on December 3, 2019 Campy, fun a great whodunnit Touching on important topics relevant to the MeToo era while also not taking itself too seriously, Reputation is really the thriller I needed from 2019 Having been a mega fan of Shepard s since the first Pretty Little Liars Book and corresponding 10 after , I was excited to delve into the deliciousness that is Reputation Opening with a prologue named for a Taylor Swift song she does have an album named Reputation after all , the plot is soon revealed to us alongside a cast characters who all seem to have a motive for the crime, but who is the one who actually followed through withmurder I can honestly say until pages before the reveal, I had so many suspects in mind and enjoyed hedging my bets as I continued reading and the reveal was not an out of left field end which can be infuriating With thrillers a dime a dozen nowadays, this one was really a fun ride, which is quite refreshing Thank you to Dutton Books for an advanced copy All opinions are my own. This book started out really strong for me I loved the description A huge university getting hacked All the previous faculty and student emails are out there for the world to see Ekkkk, can you imagine if the general public had access to every email you wrote Dear god, there would be hell to pay Yet some people were exposed than others scandals, affairs, shopping habits, you name it they are out there I especially enjoyed the catty sarcastic behavior of Lynn right from the start She is skimming through Facebook judging all her friends It actually was quite funny being privy to her inner thoughts that were not so nice yet, you know we are all a little guilty of that As the drama from the emails continue to build one of the main victims of the hack with the most popular views of his email because they were really steamy is murdered Now this is a book The suspects were endless because he has made quite a great deal of enemies with these emails Like I said this book started out really strong for me.I can t believe as a thriller lover I am going to say thisbut this book just had too many twists for me Literally every single character had a major mouth dropping twist or secret that they were hiding At first I was gasping at reveal after reveal Then it lost its shock value for me personally The twists kept coming all the way until the end and I should have been shocked by them but instead I was just like uhhh meh.I began to feel like I was watching a daytime soap where it just got out of control crazy twists I think I was all shocked out by the end With that being said many, many people will be sure to love this I did enjoy the book and I am glad that I read it, it is just a little too dramatic for me to personally rate it higher.Thank you so much to Dutton books for this ARC via Netgalley Reading books by FULL REVIEW WILL BE ON DECEMBER 2.An e mail hack at a prestigious college reeked havoc on the campus of Aldrich University.The hack exposed every single e mail that administrators, doctors, faculty, and students had written.The e mails revealed secret affairs, unsavory situations, and other juicy details I do need to warn the reader, though, that there are some unsettling, upsetting situations.REPUTATION is a roller coast of a read with a cover that doesn t seem to fit with the story inside as well as a cover I m not particularly fond of 4 5This book was given to be by the publisher via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. Book Review Reputation by Sara Shepherd 2 5 Stars I received this book as an ARC from NetGalley and the publisher in exchange for an honest review I m a little embarrassed to admit I couldn t finish

affected Coverups ensued leading to murder Secrets revealed More secrets attempted to be covered up It was just too much Almost like reading a soap opera I am saving it on my Kindle for my 18yr old daughter to read Honestly, maybe I m not the age range for this 40 45 yr old In This Fast Paced New Novel From Sara Shepard, The New York Times Bestselling Author Of Pretty Little Liars, A Tight Knit

Killed Greg Before Someone Else Is MurderedTold From Multiple Points Of View, Reputation Is Full Of Twists, Turns, And Shocking Reveals It S A Story Of Intrigue, Sabotage, And The Secrets We Keep And How Far We Go To Keep Them Hidden Number One Bestseller Sara Shepard Is At The Top Of Her Game In This Brand New Adult Novel This was quite a ride to be honest Reputation concentrates around kit and her family Her father is the president of a ivy university and when the university is hacked everyone s business is out for everyone to see Affairs, gossip, everything is there on the website for everyone to look up by name.Kit is married to a highly respected doctor when the hack happens Her family is now thrust in the spotlight over what is in Greg s emails He has been having an affair, but the emails are full of vulgar sexual content with someone he is seeing When Greg is murdered everything starts to spin and you have so many theories and motives for people to have murdered Greg.Now this does center around the metoo movement as there are several discussions of rape in this book There are a few scenes that go into detail so be cautious if that s something you don t want to read about.I honestly didn t expect to love this one as much as I did but as you read the first few chapters everything unfolds so fast and the drama jumps out I loved how Sarah didn t wait half the book to start the hack and drama, they jumped right out with it.While I appreciate the me too movement discussions in the book and the conversations that were had The book also talked about reputations and how much we as a society gossip and care what people think of us and our families We feel we have to have the fancy houses and the nice cars and be this perfect image while we can be suffering from so much behind closed doors This was a real eye opener for that type of conversation and how perfection isn t something that needs to be looked up too.The writing in the book is sometimes repetitive as you have multiple point of views and I personally hate that but it was done fairly well.One aspect I hated and this is why it wasn t five stars for me is it felt somewhat like drama being played out on tv While I sympathized with some of the characters it just felt scripted and forced The ending all came together in a neat little bow which felt really unrealistic to me.Overall I give this four point five stars because while it felt like a tv show it was hella entertaining and I was honestly intrigued as to who actually killed Greg and why I can say I never expected the ending and who did it so I give the book prompts for not being predictable as I somewhat have come to expect with mysteries.Trigger Warning Body shaming, Murder, Grief, Talk of suicide, Molestation, Rape, Domestic Abuse 4 STARS Thank you so much to Dutton for the gifted ARC of Reputation Talk about a juicy drama filled thriller This was the perfect book to get me out of my reading slump because it was a lighter thriller that was so incredibly entertaining This book was filled with so many secrets and a ton of gossip, which made it the ultimate guilty pleasure book What I liked most about this book was that although there were a ton of characters, you really get to know and understand them by the end of the book This worked really well in this book because not getting to know all the characters fully until the very end made it that much harder to figure out the mystery I also really enjoyed the fundamental aspects of the plot because it definitely had Pretty Little Liars The Perfectionists vibes, which I loved I m always a sucker for thrillers filled with a ton of drama and this one was no exception The only issue I had with this one was that it was pretty slow in the beginning and I had a hard time getting in to it This did slightly affect my overall reading experience because I found it pretty slow the first 35% of the book, but after that I was fully immersed in the story Even though it was slow in the beginning, the ending was epic and definitely made up for it My jaw actually dropped at one of the plot twists because I truly would have never guessed it Overall, I would definitely recommend this book to you guys It was such a fun read and I can see a lot of people really enjoying this one Reputation will be published December 3rd so make sure you go grab a copy This book is fun from start to finish a soapy ride I ve only read Sara Shepard s THE ELIZAS, but my guess is to readers fans of hers this will read like a grownup Pretty Little Liars than The Elizas good for those for whom The Elizas was too weird noir Shepard s has a gift with ultra specific yet mainstream normative characters that she gets you to care about, and interweaving multiple narratives twists The main story of the hack is compelling, but then it s the murder that lands like a gut punch and drives the rest of the book I loved all the layers with each character POV, and the twists I did feel like there were two potential dropped plots one I strongly wonder if it was there as the original twist killer and dropped when a different conclusion was decided on, and the other is minor but feels like a missed opportunity for a final gut punch But those are quibbles view spoiler But I ll say it here in case anyone else felt the same I feel like Paul was the original killer He had a motive wanting money credit for ghostwriting after his young wife cleaned him out in the divorce He gets really angry a few times, out of nowhere, with Willa And literally what purpose does he serve in the story, otherwise He shows up to help investigate and then disappears and is no longer important in the last third I say he was the original killer or one of the strong red herrings, and it was dropped that Willa never once suspects him is weird I also was expecting a final wham bam punch at the very end, re finding out who raped Willa Early on, I speculated it was Martin Imagine if that had happened Would have been chilling Shrug hide spoiler
