REVIEW ➼ Rock Bottom by Emily Goodwin


Rory’s life is a mess. After getting dumped by her boyfriend, let go from her job, and losing her apartment, she takes a chance on a new job in a new town. Things can’t get any worse, right?


When the foundation of Dean Dawson’s life crumbles to pieces at his feet, he swears off relationships of any kind and goes back to a life of bachelorhood, loving and leaving different women every night.

After dodging what could possibly be the world’s worst blind date, Rory finds herself face to face with Dean—a temptation she knows she should avoid. It’s just one night, and there’s no harm in having a little fun.

Wrong again.

They say when you hit rock bottom the only way to go is up, but nothing is ever that simple.

Guys like Dean are good for one thing and one thing only: breaking hearts.


Dean Dawson! When he was first introduced, he was in a relationship and married to Kara. Well along with most of the Dawson family I was not on team Kara. Dean deserved better, he deserved more and Kara just wasn’t his person. Rock Bottom is worth the wait.

Rory is a nurse with a string of bad luck that eventually leads her to Eastwood and into the Dawson clan. I loved Rory, mostly because I could relate to her. She is quirky, she is nerdy and she isn’t afraid to admit it. She hasn’t had the best luck when it comes to relationships, she knows what she wants when it comes to them and she isn’t going to settle for anything less than that. Dean is been enjoying his bachelor lifestyle. Not looking for anything serious after his marriage. He just isn’t ready for more with anyone.

Rory and Dean have an instant connection, they both know what they have is something more than a one-night stand. However, they are both on different pages when it comes to what they want with a relationship. I loved the chemistry these two had.

Of course, there are plenty of scenes with the whole Dawson family, which I LOVED. Plus, group texts between them had me laughing out loud. I love this family. Rory’s family is just as awesome. She has three brothers who give those Dawson men a run for their money. (I’m secretly hoping that they get books in the future) Rory instantly connected with Quinn, especially since they have so much in common, and the rest of the family.

I loved every single book in this series and every single member of the Dawson family. Rock Bottom and the entire series are MUST READS!
