5. It’s a girthy standalone. That’s right. You don’t have to read 17 books before this one. There’s no commitment! It’s a once and done trip to small-town central Pennsylvania.
4. Jake and Marley are almost 40. Which means they’re good at sex and things like paying bills and navigating professional relationships. Sure, they’ve still got problems. Jake has never been in a committed relationship that lasted longer than a few orgasms. And Marley is still looking for her place in the world. But together, they make 38 look pretty damn good. Especially since they’re high school teachers and deal with teenagers all day.
3. I’m not going to call this an ugly duckling to swan story (there is an actual swan in Rock Bottom Girl), but there is a pretty great makeover. In fact, Marley’s entire character arc is an inside out makeover. And there’s a scene at Ulta that would make a great music montage.
2. It’s funny. Like really, really funny. Here are a few of my favorite snippets:
“I had rebelled and complained and limped my way through the minefields of popularity, academic achievements, and athletic accomplishment. None of those had I any actual personal experience with.”
“I couldn’t think of anything in this world that could compete with the feel of Jake’s palms on my boobs. Not a litter of golden retriever puppies. Not world peace. Not even triple chocolate fudge brownies with ice cream.”
“The Eighth Wonder of the World: Jake Weston’s Erect Penis.”
“I was buried inside Marley Cicero and trying my hardest not to explode. I thought about Homer and my grandma. Homer eating my grandma’s broccoli casserole at Thanksgiving. I thought about the gas bill I’d left laying on a flat surface somewhere in the house. Anything but the woman under me, around me. Damn it. I was thinking about her again. I could feel my pulse in the tip of my dick and knew I was one jerky thrust away from coming so hard my fillings would pop out.”
Numero Uno: 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. Did I mention the best bonus epilogue I’ve ever written? Two words: Wedding. Day.
If you’re thinking this book sounds like your cuppa tea, check it out on Amazon, my friends!

Check out the series on Amazon and get sucked into the steamy love stories, the small-town hilarity, and the unsolved mystery of Callie Kendall’s disappearance. Things are heating up in Bootleg Springs when journalists descend on the town to wreak havoc. Can Bowie and Cassidy stay friends while on opposite sides of the investigation into Bowie’s father’s involvement in the cold case?
Moonshine Kiss brings back all your Bootleg favorites including:
- the entire Bodine clan
- town chicken Mona Lisa McNugget
- bar fights at The Lookout
- nosy neighbors
- and of course, gems like this one “I vaguely remembered Devlin and Bowie making me shake Misty Lynn’s stupid hand that had probably touched sixty percent of the penises in town.”
Read for free on Kindle Unlimited or enjoy the launch week special price at $2.99.
You guys, I’m so excited! On December 7, we’re all going back to Bootleg Springs where the investigation into Callie Kendall’s disappearance is heating up. And so are things between good guy Bowie Bodine and sheriff’s deputy Cassidy Tucker!
I’ve got a cover and a blurb for you to drool over, my friends!
All those years of adolescent fantasies and this was how Bowie Bodine first touched my boobs. And he apologized. Real life was stupid and unfair.
Small town deputy Cassidy Tucker’s dating life is a train wreck on repeat. All she ever wanted was a solid partner. A man to share pajamas with. The handsome, big-hearted Bowie Bodine. Wait. Scratch that. Mr. You’re-Like-a-Sister-to-Me is not welcome in her fantasies.
She and Bowie aren’t going to happen—that’s been clear for a long time—and as for the rest of mankind? Cassidy’s officially giving up on love and adopting cats. Good thing the cold case disappearance of Callie Kendall is heating up to keep her distracted. Except the investigation is testing her friendship with all the Bodines—Bowie in particular.
Bowie knows he can’t have his little sister’s best friend. He made a promise and he’s determined to keep it. But putting distance between them isn’t easy—not when she lives right next door.
Having her poke around trying to prove his father’s guilt isn’t helping either. All Bowie has ever wanted is to shed the No-Good Bodine reputation. It’s looking like he’ll never be free of that shadow.
But one nocturnal animal, a feverish against-the-wall kiss, and absolutely zero pajamas has a way of changing everything.
If you’re feeling antsy about waiting until December 7, jump back into Whiskey Chaser and Sidecar Crush to refresh your memory and your Callie Kendall conspiracy theories!
My latest release Finally Mine takes us back to Benevolence where we first met Luke and Harper. Finally Mine belongs to Gloria and Aldo. I fell hard for Aldo Moretta while writing his story. This wounded veteran hero has a heart that’s only eclipsed by the size of his manly chest. Gloria is one of my favorite heroines of all time.
And don’t even get me started on their happily ever after. SWOON!
You’ll laugh, you’ll cry, you might have to put your Kindle in the fridge to cool it off.
And yes, before you ask. Since Aldo and Gloria got their story in Benevolence, sexy firefighter Lincoln Reed will be getting his shot at love in 2019! I hope you all enjoy Finally Mine—and maybe take Pretend You’re Mine for a nostalgic re-read.
I’m not sure where December went, or 2017 for that matter. But I find myself already in the throes of January. How in the ever-living crap did that happen? Sigh. Anyway, let me catch you up, internets.
The Christmas Fix came out last month and was quite the Christmas hit! Here’s a few things that readers are saying about Cat and Noah and their enemies-to-lovers holiday rom-com…
“I laughed, cried, really ugly cried and smiled all the way through this loving Christmas tale.” – Thatmom
“The banter between the main characters is funny, sexy, angsty, and hot all in one.” – Xandy85
“So freaking cute! Ahhhhhh…..I love Enemies to lovers and this book hit me in all the feels!!!!!” – Andrea Danielle
And none of those reviews were from my mother! I know! Right? Mr. Lucy and I were thrilled with the reception that The Christmas Fix got. And, being a giant sucker for all things Christmas, I’m already plotting my 2018 Christmas novel.
Anyway, if you haven’t picked up The Christmas Fix, get those grabby hands on it. It’s in Kindle Unlimited!
What else have I been up to? For Christmas, Mr. Lucy and I visited six houses and something like 32 people! It was magnificent! We were still worn out by New Year’s Eve, so we went to an early dinner with friends and then were in comfy pants on the couch to watch the ball drop.
How about you? What did you do for the holidays? Did you make any resolutions? My main New Year’s resolution is to find more time in my day. I want to remember more things, not just wake up to a blur of writing all the words and zoning out in front of the TV to unwind every night. I want to finish 2018 with more amazing memories than 2017.
I’ll be checking in again soon with a new reader profile! I can’t wait!
Mark those calendars, my friends! The Christmas Fix is coming at you December 1! I’m so excited! You read Mr. Fixer Upper and asked for, nay—DEMANDED Catalina King’s story. Well, you’re gonna get it! Check it out…
She’ll save Christmas just to spite him…
When a late season hurricane hits Merry, Connecticut, city manager and single dad Noah Yates has to inform the already devastated residents that there won’t be a Christmas Festival this year. No festival means no tourism dollars. A disaster of epic proportions for his hometown.
But when home renovation expert slash smoking hot reality TV star Catalina King shows up with a camera crew and a budget big enough to put the town back together again, Noah balks. Hard. The last time Cat was in town she stirred up trouble everywhere she went. (Residents are still talking about the town’s first and only bar fight.) Noah doesn’t need a TV diva capitalizing on his town’s tragedy or filling his daughter’s head with glitz and glam.
Cat is ready and willing to put Merry back in Christmas mode with a holiday special that will leave everyone believing in miracles and get her friends back in the home they love. But there’s one big problem standing in her way. And his name is Noah Yates. He’s wrong about her and she can’t wait to prove it. Ring those jingle bells because it’s on.
I’ll be doing a very short 99¢ preorder. So sign up for my newsletter so you don’t miss your shot at this sweet, sexy full-length Christmas novel on sale!
Welcome back to Blue Moon, my friends! Holding on to Chaos, #5 in the Blue Moon series, hit Amazon and promptly sent readers into a world with a hot sheriff, nosy neighbors, a fibbing heroine, and an already crazy town being made crazier by an astrological apocalypse (I don’t know where I come up with these ideas either!).
Haven’t read it yet? Don’t worry, it’s a whole lot better than I just made it sound. This is the funniest book I’ve written to-date. Donovan Cardona has his hands full when he decides to fall in love. But how can he score that first date with Eva Merill, the secretive youngest sister of Gia and Emma, when the entire town is losing its damn mind?
I laughed out loud every day writing this story. All of your favorite Blue Moon characters are back in this latest standalone installment. And Ellery? Oh, dear, sweet Goth princess Ellery gets quite the storyline in this book. Clementine? Of course she’s present. Do you think she’s mellowed or is she still a savage attack goat after cookies?
If you haven’t picked up a copy of Holding on to Chaos, grab it now. You won’t regret it (said the author who’s totally biased). Free on Kindle Unlimited!
Here’s a little sneak peek at your Sheriff Sexy and sassy heroine…
Looking for your next book hangover? I’ve got just the thing: Gannon King.
I always like to do a blog about my new book right around its release date. But thanks to a vacation, a move, and a really great launch, I dropped the ball on the blog! But you’re all too busy reading Mr. Fixer Upper to care about a blog post, right? Right!
I don’t need to blab all about all the reasons I love this book. So let me give you the highlights.
- Gannon King is the grumpy, fiery kind of hero that I LOVE. He reminds me a bit of Mr. Lucy if you know what I mean ;)
- That. Shower. Scene.
- Paige is one of my favorites. She undergoes a transformation throughout the story that I really enjoyed writing. She’s smart and a little cool and has lady balls. But she’s lonely and doesn’t always speak her mind. At least not until a temperamental, loud mouth Italian contractor who hates being on TV comes along and drives her insane.
- The slow burn. This is not a love-at-first-sight story. This is co-workers who don’t like each other. But where there’s smoke—or in this case, sparks—there’s freaking fire.
- Home renovations. I can’t get enough of those shows so I wrote a book about it!
But you don’t have to take my word for it. Listen to these really smart folks who loved Mr. Fixer Upper and aren’t even related to me or on my payroll!:
I started Mr. Fixer Upper right after work at 5:00 p.m. and I finished it at 12:30 p.m.. My family had to make a run to town to get supper because I was not going to stop reading. I laughed, cried and according to my husband gasp a lot. – Ptacekjill
As is always the case with Lucy Score, I laughed and cried through the whole book. If there is one thing that gets me every time, it’s a strong character showing vulnerability. – Joyce Hiebert
Sexy and snort-laugh funny, just as you’ve come to expect from Lucy Score. – E. McLeod
Stay tuned for lots more news (INCLUDING READER INTERVIEWS!!), information on Blue Moon #5, and a peek at my brand new office in our new house! Keep reading, friends!
The idea started last year when a handful of readers came to me and where like “Yo, Lucy! We want to read John and Phoebe Pierce’s story.” I, of course, was like “Uh, y’all know that John dies, right? And Phoebe gets remarried and lives HEA. How am I supposed to write John??” They were like, “You’ll figure it out. Do it!”
And damn if they weren’t right.
I decided to write the book as an experiment to see if a) it could be written and b) if it should be written. And as soon as I started it, I realized this was the perfect story and the perfect time for it. There were so many overlaps to the rest of the Blue Moon series, so many connections between John and his sons, and Blue Moon circa 1985 to present day.
I got to really dig in to why this community is so much more than just a collection of neighbors. And I’m so happy and grateful and blown away that you guys asked for this book… and that I delivered. *patting self on back*
Anyway, if you haven’t read it yet, here’s what I want you to know:
- You’ll probably cry. I did. A lot. But I think there’s enough funny and enough happy and enough hope in there to still feel really good when you close the book.
- You get to meet all your Blue Moon favorites as much younger characters. I.E. The barf fest on Pierce Acres and that time John had to have THE TALK with his boys.
- If you like the show This is Us, you’ll probably like this book.
- This is the prequel to the Blue Moon series. I strongly suggest that you read at least the first 3 Blue Moon Books before this!!
Here’s What Readers Are Saying:
