I loved and was loved. And that was the most important thing in the world.
“I’m asking you to stay, Mars. Stay here. Be mine. Let me be yours. Live in this haunted house with me and Homer. Work with me. Run with me. Make me lunches. Let me hold you while you fall asleep on the porch.”
"I loved and was loved. And that was the most important thing in the world."
“It’s like I missed the day in school when they told us how to be an adult.”
“Come on, Mars. Don’t send me home alone.”Told in Marley’s POV, Rock Bottom Girl is a hilarious romantic comedy with plenty of passion and witty dialogue. The banter between the two main characters is hilarious throughout the entire read. What makes this story most endearing is the quirkiness of Marley and the way in which she proudly lives out her journey unashamed and with such bravery. In addition to the main characters, the supporting characters enhanced the story greatly. The family adds more love and double the fun!
"Newsflash, you want to act like a jerk, do it at home to your parents who made you this way."Overall, Rock Bottom Girl will appeal to readers who enjoy a sweet and short romantic comedy with high school drama and loads of fun. In this current climate, we find ourselves in, you will not be sorry you escaped into a world of fun and good old fashioned swoon-worthy passion! Lucy Score is a relatively new author to me and I certainly look forward to reading more of her work!
"You're the 'more' I've been looking for my entire life."It's OFFICIAL: I can count on Ms. Lucy Score to make me laugh and brighten my day!
I was single, jobless, and hopeless.At the ripe old age of 38, Marley is forced to move back to her small hometown to live with her parents after a series of unfortunate events.
He looked like he was going to tell me something I'd treasure for the rest of my life. Something about my under-the-radar beauty or my womanly charms. How I'd hypnotized him with my wit.. . . but also swoon-worthy ones . . .
"Lose the sweater," he said gruffly.
Together we were two lovers lost and found.. . . and some life lessons along the way.
"No amount of 'atta girls' from other people is going to give you that swagger you're looking for. You're a hell of a girl, Mars. Start acting like it."I loved Jake and Marley together and I loved the supporting cast, all of whom had me in stitches at different times throughout the book. Ms. Score's sense of humor is at turns overt, then subtle.
"Come on," he said, nodding toward the backdoor. "I'll how you the porch."The only thing that kept Rock Bottom Girl from being a 5 star home run for me was Marley's self doubt. It got to be a bit overdone.
It sounded like a euphemism.
It was an open wound I dealt with secretly, never being good enough.If it had been dialed back a bit, I'd have put this on my all-time favorites list. As it is though, the laughs more than make up for any shortcoming I could ever go on about. I definitely recommend!
1. “This is a fake relationship that starts with a meet-puke, a girls soccer team, a rescue dog, a perfect sister, and the bad boy from high school. Oh and a high school nemesis who only got meaner with age.”
2. “It’s funny”. Here are the parts that made me laugh the hardest:
“Vicky: Don’t even try to go radio silent on me. The last time Rich and I had sex, he kept his socks on. Vicky: I need to live vicariously through your swinging singlehood. Me: Fine. There was a kiss. It was nice. Vicky: *Hulk smash meme* Vicky: NICE?? JAKE WESTON LAYS ONE ON YOU AND IT WAS JUST NICE??? Me: Go tell Rich to take his socks off.”
“Me: Don’t wait up tonight! Mom: Wait up for what? Me: Me to come home. Mom: Why would I do that? You’re almost 40. Me: I’m just saying I won’t be home tonight, and you shouldn’t worry. Mom: Why won’t you be home tonight??? Did something happen??? Are you okay? Me: Mom, I just said don’t worry. Mom: TELL ME WHAT NOT TO WORRY ABOUT! Me: I’m having sex with Jake. Okay? There. You made me say it. It’s your own fault, and now we can never make eye contact again. Don’t tell Dad. Mom: Have fun at Bible study, sweetie. Me: ??? Mom: Just kidding! I’m a cool mom. Condoms are fun. Make good choices!”
“Baby, don’t take this the wrong way. But if you say another word or move a muscle, this is going to be really embarrassing for me and really disappointing for you.” She gave the tiniest laugh, and it almost put me over the edge. Homer. Grandma. Broccoli. Gas. Did the Steelers have a shot at the Super Bowl this year? John Quincy Adams.”
“Wow,” she said again. My lips curved. “Am I crushing you?” “You’re holding me on the surface of the planet because what we just did destroyed gravity,” she said.
“I love you,” she said. “So much. So big and wide and more. You’re the ‘more’ I’ve been looking for my entire life.”
This was a real kiss. All of this felt too real. I was in over my head, but I didn’t feel interested in saving myself. I was content to drown.
