Bottom Feeder by Maria G. Cope

Bottom Feeder is a book written by author Maria G. Cope. The cover caught by attention but the story inside sucked me in. This book will put you through an emotional roller coaster: happy sad, pissed, ready to kill and content. Maria Cope is an author that is new to me and I am very happy that I picked up this book and gave it a chance!


Maddy Carrington is seventeen years old and a graduate of high school. Her best friend, Dixon, is around a lot. Her father is throwing a graduation party, not just for her but for all the graduates. In other words, he wants to show off which he does well. Jackson, Violet’s son, is back home from the war. Jackson accompanies Violet to the party where Cordell Carrington steals Jackson away for a few minutes to talk cars and hint about a deal. Maddy walks down to the dock where they’re talking and interrupts before anything can get too far into the conversation.

Jackson returns to the Carrington house the next morning to speak with Cordell and find out what kind of deal he has in mind for Jackson to obtain the Barracuda. On the surface, the deal seems legit but Cordell leaves underlying threats in the mix. All Jackson has to do is escort Maddy to New York and act like he’s interested in her during the week before she leaves. That’s it. Simple. Only Maddy isn’t Jackson’s type of girl. Maddy is thick and not the scrawny type he normally goes after.

Things are okay between them until they get to NC for a few days before continuing on to New York. Maddy stays in a hotel while Jackson is in his barracks. On a Friday, Jackson sends Dominick Beraz to go get Maddy’s luggage to have it there at the barracks in her car ready to go. Beraz promises to come back later and get her, which he does. They end up going out on a date since it’s her eighteenth birthday. He draws her a gorgeous picture that goes along with some of the things they talked about. Dom and Maddy end up becoming a couple.

Things get a whole hell of a lot worse before the end of the book. With the way it was left off, I expect the second book to be a whole lot worse than this book was!


I loved Maddy from the beginning. She’s a character that most can love. She will protect anyone she loves even if it means endangering herself and letting harm come to herself to keep them safe, which she proves multiple times in the book. Cordell Carrington, didn’t like him from the start or Larry Duvall either. Jackson, I’m still iffy on.

Like I said above, this book will have you on an emotional roller coaster ride. I cried, laughed, was happy and sad while reading this book. It will make you feel things you don’t want too. You can’t help but love some of the characters as you’re reading this book. I would highly recommend this book to other readers!
