Book Review: Things We Never Got Over {Lucy Score}

The bar was set HIGH for this one and my expectations were through the roof. When I actually purchase a book rather than check it out from the library, you KNOW I’m expecting it to be great.

I started reading this book right before my family and I took an epic road trip and this book came along on the adventure! I’ve read parts of this book in 4 different states!

Started in Illinois
Continued in Indiana
Reading while watching the sunrise over the mountains in Tennessee
Read more in Indiana
Aaaaand finished the book while back home in Illinois

Goodreads Synopsis of Things We Never Got Over {Lucy Score}:

Bearded, bad-boy barber Knox prefers to live his life the way he takes his coffee: Alone. Unless you count his basset hound, Waylon.
Knox doesn’t tolerate drama, even when it comes in the form of a stranded runaway bride.

Naomi wasn’t just running away from her wedding. She was riding to the rescue of her estranged twin to Knockemout, Virginia, a rough-around-the-edges town where disputes are settled the old-fashioned way…with fists and beer. Usually in that order.

Too bad for Naomi her evil twin hasn’t changed at all. After helping herself to Naomi’s car and cash, Tina leaves her with something unexpected. The niece Naomi didn’t know she had. Now she’s stuck in town with no car, no job, no plan, and no home with an 11-year-old going on thirty to take care of.

There’s a reason Knox doesn’t do complications or high-maintenance women, especially not the romantic ones. But since Naomi’s life imploded right in front of him, the least he can do is help her out of her jam. And just as soon as she stops getting into new trouble he can leave her alone and get back to his peaceful, solitary life.

At least, that’s the plan until the trouble turns to real danger.

My Review of Things We Never Got Over {Lucy Score}:

I really loved it.

There is so much hype surrounding this book right now and there is a reason…it’s wonderful.

Set in a charming small town with charming characters, I found myself smiling while reading. It’s light, easy to read, and a perfect book to bring on vacation.

It’s LONG (552 pages!) but the story never dragged, it just intensified. A bit cheesy at times and I didn’t always love the actions of one of the main characters (Knox)…but overall I really loved the story.

The biggest surprise of the book was the way the author went from cheesy, overly saccharine writing to…EXTREMELY HOT AND DIRTY SEX SCENES! Like, holy fuck did those scenes come out of left field. They were awesome and a very pleasant surprise indeed. Loved them 🙂

The second biggest surprise to me was that there was one storyline that I predicted from the very beginning that I felt was glaringly obvious throughout the entire book…AND IT TURNED OUT THAT I WAS WRONG! I absolutely LOVE when that happens!

The author’s note at the end was so beautifully written and made me respect the whole book even more.

The sequel comes out in February 2023! I’m excited to revisit Knockemout and to revisit these beautiful characters. I already LOVE the gorgeous cover:

Bottom Line:

Sweet, innocent, cheesy words of a really beautiful story and suddenly…BAM…dirty sex scene. Loved this book so much!
