Moving back to your home town is never easy but when you’ve lost your job, been dumped, and don’t have a penny to your name it’s a necessity. 38 year old Marley is back in her childhood bedroom living with her parents when her mom gets her a new job as the high school girls soccer coach and gym teacher. Marley couldn’t wait to leave town after high school and now she’s right back in the midst of teenage angst, cliques, and raging hormones- oh wait, those raging hormones are hers! High school crush Jake Weston is a teacher at school and when Marley ends up in the principal’s office she finds herself in a fake relationship signing an ethics contract! She has definitely hit Rock Bottom… or has she?
Rock Bottom Girl nailed all of my sweet spots; down on your luck heroine, girls soccer (I played in high school), hunky high school crush, and humor with a capital H! Marley was the type of heroine who doesn’t believe in herself but at the same time manages to rise to every occasion albeit sometimes accidentally. Her hijinks had me laughing out loud and reaching for the tissues. Not because I was crying from the emotion but because I was laughing so hard my eyes were streaming.
Jake Weston was the perfect hero. A little too good to be true, actually, but I’m going to overlook that perfection. He was the perfect foil to Marley’s imperfect life. Despite her flaws, he falls for her hook line and sinker, as do I. She was a tough heroine to dislike!
This was my first novel by Lucy Score. I stumbled upon it by accident and am thankful for whoever it was that recommended it. It’s a slow burn romance and there’s plenty of build up to the relationship and when our two main characters get together? Oh my! After finishing Rock Bottom Girl I immediately jumped on Amazon to see which novel I’d read next. I hope they’re all as good as this one!
