More lists with this book...
If you love entertaining, heart-warming and funny books – this is the book for you.
I’m not usually into rom-coms but some author’s just work for me – and this author’s humor is right up my alley. Never too over the top, and without her characters being embarrassingly stupid, the humor was always just right, and the entire novel easily checked all my boxes – Rock Bottom Girl was a HIT!!
I laughed out loud – and got some strange looks from the people at the hair salon – grinned some more, ...more
I had the most amazing reading day today. I managed to get the washing, cleaning and shopping done AND start and finish a fabulous book. Actually, I'd have to say it was an amazing weekend of reading. Two 5-star books in one weekend are what every reader dreams of. Rock Bottom Girl took me on an emotional journey of highs and lows and left me with a big goofy smile.
Marley has hit rock bottom and returned to her childhood home with her tail between her legs. B ...more
Well color me surprised!
I went into Rock Bottom Girl hoping for a little fun and a little steam. What I got was a story i found myself relating to on so many levels with an awesome dose of humor and fun thrown in for good measure.
Marley's a heroine I can get behind. Thirty eight and still searching for her place in the world, she served as a gentle and fun reminder that we don't have to have it all figured out by an arbitrary date or age. Jake, in all his cross country coaching, history ...more
This book was RomCom perfection!!
To start, the Rom(antic) portion was epic with sweet,sizzling, off the charts chemistry between Marley and Jake! Jake is the perfect book boyfriend from the beginning and exactly what Marley needs to help her grow and move on.
The Com(edy) had me laughing out loud the entire time! It’s so hard to pick a favorite part when ...more
An epic story about personal declarations of independence! I was completely invested in Jake and Marley’s story, in them as a couple and individually. I’ve never wanted a heroine to succeed more! I wanted her to win a soccer game, earn her student’s respect, let go of her own high school horrors, win the love of the town George Clooney, but most of all I wanted Marley Cicero to belief in herself.
That town George Clooney hero Jake Weston? Wow. He’s as close to perfect as you c ...more
Here's what I love about Lucy Score. She's one of few authors that paint an absolute picture with her words. The description of Jessica, Marley's mother, made me cry - it was written with so much love and I felt like how a baby egg animal imprints on the first animal it sees. I had a very kindred relationship to Jessica! I have a lot more to say but that really stuck out to me and I had to say something.
Other great word pictures: Ja ...more
Marley is a woman who has been knocked down more than a few times. Life certainly hasn’t gone the way she hoped, but at almost 40 she still hasn’t given up. While she may h ...more
Rock Bottom Girl is everything I love in a romance! You get smoking hot smexiness, you get a fabulous heroine and hero and above all you get laughs, genuine laugh out loud moments! In fact I laughed out loud so much that my husband (who in no way reads) wanted me to read some parts of this story out loud and he got a good chuckle too! That in itself is a stellar review!
This story of Marley and Jake is ...more
It's back to high school 20 years later and way too many old memories still haunt Marley and turn her inside out. But on the plus side there's Jake, oh Jake, how I loved Jake. Could he be any more perfect for Marley. I loved how he called her "Mars". A-d-o-r-a-b ...more
Jake and Marley's journey included fun, steaminess, romance, tons of laughs, mild angst, and a good helping of self-worth issues. The high school bad boy turned sexy, tattooed teacher? YES, PLEASE! Where do I sign up? Jake is genuinely kind, insanely attractive, and connects with students in a way that I wish all teachers could. He is a bit of a slob but for some reason, I really enjoyed visualizing him living it up like a messy college kid with his dog.Marley is down on her luck and living back ...more
There is so much to enjoy in this story: dreamy hero, straight talking best friend, long standing nemisis and a rag tag teen girls soccer team that need to learn how to be a tea ...more
This book is for any of us, or all of us really who always want "more." Who. never think we are good enough, or big enough, or enough of anything. With the right amount of love and the correct ...more
The mean girls, the gym classes, the unrequited crushes....Marley has been there and done that 20 years ago. Now, dumped, fired and homeless she has to relive those high school days at 38. Except this time she's the teacher and the coach...and she has Jake Weston by her side.
I devoured this book and then mourned because it was over. And I spent 20 minutes wondering what to write here because what I reall ...more
What can I say about this Lucy Score classic? I'm obviously a big fan of Lucy's novels. I've read them all. What makes a Lucy Score classic in my eyes?
1. Romance (obviously), but not just over-the-top big sell romance. Romance in the small moments, and the whispered comments, and the ordinary acts of the every day.
2. Feisty heroines that know their own mind, don't take any bull, and stand up for themselves and their loved ones (include their heroes).
3. He ...more
"Ninety percent of people remember high school as a miserable experience."
I think the above quote is one of the reasons, this book is so relatable. When Marley returns to her hometown of Culpepper, broke, single and thrown into a job at her old high school; she thinks everyone had a wonderful high school experience, except her. She fears that everyone remembers that "thing" she did at Homecoming, and hates her for it. ...more
This story is a second-chance at high school as much as a second-chance love story.
And a little bit of taking a second-look at what you think you want out of life.
Rock Bottom Girl is one of those stories that makes you relate to one or a little bit of all the characters throughout the story. I loved the journey Marley goes through and the awakenings she has along the way. It is great how Marley's high school-crush, Jake, is the one to help her along this journ ...more
