LEGACYI refuse to tarnish my family name. The doubts only fuel me to be the fiercest
fighter anyone’s ever seen.

REBEL

With every hit, I’ll flip the bird at society standards, busting down the walls
for a female generation to reign.

DISTRACTION

With my first fight looming, a little time away from the headlines is exactly
what I need. It was just supposed to be a road trip with my best friends. I
didn’t plan on Joss showing up, the man who blatantly turned me down on the
most embarrassing night of my life. He’s here to keep me safe, and for the
first time, I have no where to run.

CAGE

When the day comes, I’m going to prove I’m not just a Cage, I’m the Cage.

Excerpt
Turn around princess.
I need to see the woman who’s sultry dancing has made me
lose all concentration. The little vixen who has my head in a haze forgetting
about Danny and his SOS message.
Finally, at the end of the song she turns my way. Her face
is still blocked by the blonde locks that have stuck to her sweat plastered
skin. She flips her hair with a big smile teasing at her lips.
Suddenly I lose the ability to take in a breath when my
lungs cease to work.
It’s Emmy.
Fuck me. I feel all kinds of wrong with the thoughts that
have just run through my head. I just pictured my best friend’s little sister
with her legs tight around me as I pound into her. I try to wipe the visual
from my mind, but I’m unable to. It’s official, I’m going to hell and my body
hasn’t yet got the memo that it’s Emmy dancing on the stage because my cock’s
still standing at attention ready to claim her.

Love couple in bed

Synopsis:

“You may be faking the relationship, but you’re not faking the orgasms.”

Downsized, broke, and dumped, 38-year-old Marley sneaks home to her childhood bedroom in the town she couldn’t wait to escape twenty years ago. Not much has changed in Culpepper. The cool kids are still cool. Now they just own car dealerships and live in McMansions next door. Oh, and the whole town is still talking about that Homecoming she ruined her senior year. Desperate for a new start, Marley accepts a temporary teaching position. Can the girl banned from all future Culpepper High Homecomings keep the losing-est girls soccer team in school history from killing each other and prevent carpal tunnel in a bunch of phone-clutching gym class students? Maybe with the help of Jake Weston, high school bad boy turned sexy good guy. When the school rumor mill sends Marley to the principal’s office to sign an ethics contract, the tattooed track coach, dog dad, and teacher of the year becomes her new fake boyfriend and alibi—for a price. The Deal: He’ll teach her how to coach if she teaches him how to be in a relationship. Who knew a fake boyfriend could deliver such real orgasms? But it’s all temporary. The guy. The job. The team. There’s too much history. Rock bottom can’t turn into a foundation for happily ever after. Can it? Warning: Story also includes a meet-puke, a bouffanted nemesis, a yard swan and donkey basketball, a teenage-orchestrated makeover, and a fake relationship that gets a little too real between the sheets.

📝My Review📝:

Rock Bottom GirlRock Bottom Girl by Lucy Score

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Have you ever read a book that you could relate to so well that it gave you anxiety? Rock Bottom Girl did that for me. I believe there are four types of high school experiences. One being you loved high school and everything about it. The second being you absolutely hated it. The third being you pretended you loved it when you actually hated it. And finally, the fourth being you have both good and bad experiences. That’s me. I fall into the fourth category with a touch of the third. High school was not great for me in freshman year. I wasn’t bullied but I had a hard time trying to find my place. I ended up making friends that were not great in the way of role models. But thankfully, by my sophomore year, I knew who I was and who my true friends were. Unfortunately, there were not many of those. That said, I watched so many kids being bullied. Marley was familiar. There were so many Marleys in my high school. Unfortunately, there were more Amie Jo’s than I could count. I was more than thankful to not be on their radars.

As I read through this book, the angst just kept building. I really didn’t know how Marley’s life would turn out. And while she was very stubborn in her way of thinking, I understood her. There were many predictable moments that made me cringe and laugh at the same time.

Marley was that bullied girl in HS. I seriously don’t understand how she remained a decent person after all she had been through. I loved her character. She may have thought herself weak but Marley was anything but. When she moves back to her hometown after losing yet another job, broke and broken up with her boyfriend, Marley is at that place we call
“rock bottom.” Sometimes we need to hit that place in our lives to find a new perspective. Marley will take a temporary job as a gym teacher and soccer coach. Warily accepting this job, Marley will soon find out that this was the new direction her life needed. Nothing will come easy though. Marley admits to being afraid to return to HS even if she is an adult now. And sadly, she will have to deal with the school bully once again as this antagonist is a fellow teacher.

Of course, the bad boy of her youth still gets her blood pumping. There is also a story there but I won’t go into details. Marley’s journey, while angsty, is pure hysterics. Gosh, I laughed so much and so often through this book. My daughter thought I was crazy because of my loud bouts of laughter.

While this book brought back some less than pleasant HS moments, the author did a magnificent job in giving me new memories. Even if they aren’t mine, I got to experience them. I can’t say enough good things about this book and I’m so afraid that I haven’t done it justice in my review. This was actually the first book I ever read by Lucy Score. I am a huge fan now. If she writes all her books with this many feels, I am going to be a very happy reader!

I highly recommend this book to everyone. There is love, romance, a fake relationship, a hero donkey, and more laughter than my stomach muscles could take.

This is my honest and unbiased review. Thank you for taking the time to read it. 🙂

Savannah

I didn’t think I was missing anything. I had my son, a great career, and a home that I’d made for both of us. One puck over the glass at a hockey game made me realize I wanted more. The larger-than-life hockey player inserted himself into our world and I never wanted to let him go.

The thing is, I don’t know if I’m strong enough to keep him.

Porter
My home was on the ice, with a stick in my hand and a puck on my tape. It took one little boy with a toothless smile and his spitfire mother to change all that. I wanted them to be my home and I was willing to take all the penalties necessary to make it happen.

Now I just have to convince her that we can handle it all together.

Melding three lives into one isn’t as easy as it seems, especially with the traveling, the media, and the insecurities. Savannah and Porter have to decide whether to use the breakaway to head to the goal or take a seat on the bench.

After all, 425 Madison is the perfect place to fall in love!

Jake
I’ve seen Emmy. She’s out of my league, but that doesn’t stop me from taking her up on her offer and upping the ante. I have rules, however, the more time we spend together the more the lines get blurred.
Her lie made her more like me than I ever thought possible. Too bad liars don’t do it for me.
A little boyfriend maintenance goes a long way…

Synopsis

I have a crush on Nolan Archer, Boston University’s freshman running back.
He’s the definition of tall, dark, and swoon worthy. My knees weaken every
time our eyes meet. There’s only one problem… he’s a virgin.

As much as I try to convince myself he’s too young for me, or that I prefer
experienced guys, I can’t deny the flames of attraction flaring between us.

When his fraternity brothers decide to auction off his virginity, it forces
me to make a decision.

Should I forget about Nolan once and for all, or place the winning bid and
be his first score?

*can be read as a standalone*

📝My Review📝:

5 Stars…..

Score by Jacob Chance

This is book six in the Boston Terrier series by author Jacob Chance. I believe this is the last book in the series and that makes me sad because there’s still more characters on the football team that I wish would get a happily ever after. However the author will be giving us a new series with BU’s hockey team players. You’ve already met a couple of those guys, specifically Clancy. I am really looking forward to his story. Not to mention the fact that I love hockey romance.

This book was a little bit different than the others in the series in the way that it takes place post football season and during the university’s Christmas break. However this is not categorized as a Christmas romance. While The playing of football is primarily absent in this novel, we got to watch a group of the guys having fun and just letting go. There was no drama. And for me, that was a treat.

Nolan is a starting receiver for the Boston Terriers and is a freshman. Personally I thought Nolan was a great character. He was sweet, loyal, hardworking and a considerate young man. A gentleman Despite being inexperienced and a little bit shy around Perry, Nolan knew how to treat people with respect while having fun and making the people around him happy.

I’m not going into details because you’ll want to experience all that is Nolan Archer on your own without any spoilers from me. I am going to say that the author did such a wonderful job scene setting. I felt like I was experiencing a winter playground. Nolan, Perri, and some of the guys got to play and just have fun without the stresses of classes. They were all having fun and I couldn’t stop smiling. One of the secondary characters, in particular, had my attention for sure. Flynn. Since I think this is the last we’ll see of the Boston Terriers football series, I felt a bit of disappointment that we won’t get a book for him.

The last chapters of the book were perfect. While I predicted most of what was going to happen, there was a nice surprise thrown in that I didn’t see coming. Do I recommend this book? Absolutely! In fact, this author has not written anything that I didn’t love. If you haven’t read anything in this series, you should. It is a perfect binge-read series.

This is my honest and unbiased opinion. Thank you for taking the time to read my review. 🙂

The man could charm the panties off of a nun…Nick Murphy. Hockey god. My best friend’s big brother. My friend-with-mindblowing-benefits.
The best thing to happen to my nether regions since my subscription to the toy
of the month club. The man I’ve been secretly in love with for years.

And total ass.

I am so done with him.

Except there’s one small problem.

Now that I’ve cut him off, his hockey game is in the toilet. He’s convinced I’m
his good luck charm, and he wants me back. But only for his game.

I’ll be strong. I will. I’ll resist.

Asses don’t change their stripes.

Or do they?

This plan would be so easy if the man wasn’t Charming as Puck…

Charming as Puck is a romping fun romance between a hockey player and
his sister’s best friend, complete with farm animals, over the top birthday
presents, and Berger Twin sightings. This romantic comedy stands alone with no
cheating or cliffhangers and ends with a pucking awesome happily ever
after.
