Tired of people thinking of
her as just an easy lay, Marlene enters the Perfect Score
bowling tournament hoping to earn a 300 score in a game.
Almost impossible, but she is confidant that she is just that
good of a bowler. However, when she sees Buck Miller at the
bowling alley, she falls immediately in lust and when Buck
seems to want more than just sex, Marlene panics and is unable
to handle the thought of someone caring enough about her to
pursue a relationship. The cards are in Buck’s hands and he
needs to play them skillfully; this is one woman he doesn’t
want to let slip away from him. Even though Buck craves a
perfect game, he would much rather win the game of love with
Marlene by his side.
I adored this entire series by
Beth Williamson but I think Marlene’s Man is my
favorite. I laughed. I got teary eyed. I got angry. Most of
all, I got a great story about how one woman’s determination
turned into something completely unexpected. And Buck Miller
was unexpected by Marlene. Fully aware of what people said
about her, I found her often times quite unsure of herself and
therefore she used bravado to cover up her inner feelings, and
that is when Buck was able to snag her. He wouldn’t let her
think badly of herself because he didn’t think that way. He
was perfect for her. Perfect.
I hate to see this series come
to a close, I loved it so much. Beth Williamson continues to
amaze me with her talent and knack for bringing to life
characters that are realistic and every day people.
Marlene’s Man will be read more than once, I can
