Our Review

“You get to decide how you show up in this world. No one else gets to dictate to you who you are.”

Things We Never Got Over by Lucy Score has been sitting pretty on our kindles for a while and we finally picked it up and devoured it from the first page to the last. It was a very long book, but it was worth it! Lucy Score covered so many of our favourite things we love in our stories, and it was reminiscent of some of our favourite books by Authors we loved a decade ago. Utter perfection. The way in which Lucy Score wrote Knox and Naomi’s story is superb, it swept us up and carried us along as if we were in it, experiencing the highs, the lows, the heat, and the drama alongside all the wonderful characters. It’s truly a wonderful story of family, friendship, and love.

‘Was there someone out there who would find me to be enough? Not too much or too little, but the person they’d been waiting for their whole life.’

Knockemout has the best residents, we fell in love with all of them (bar Tina of course). Like Naomi muses a few times, what on earth is in the drinking water there, they sure don’t make the blokes like this round our way! Knox, Nash, and Lucien. What a trio!

‘I knew what attraction felt like. Knew what to do with it too. But not with a woman like this. One who didn’t know it was smart to be afraid of me.’

So, this book is about the enigmatic Knox and the incoming fleeing bride Naomi. They don’t meet under the best of circumstances, however, it’s pretty safe to say that the intense attraction is immediate. With a few grumpy slanging matches and tangible heated looks, we just knew this was going to turn into a fiery romance!

“You know what they say about fine. Fucked up. Insecure. Neurotic. And emotional.”

Naomi is running from her life into an unknown situation after getting a surprising phone call from her estranged twin sister. It’s a good egg versus bad egg situation, stemming from childhood, but Naomi is a people pleaser, a problem solver, and has the heart of an angel. A bad situation changes everything for Naomi and deservedly for the better. Before that though, she must run through a gamut of obstacles, one being the saucy and stroppy Knox. Knox has his own issues and baggage but underneath that gruff Viking, exterior lies a soft heart with a few cracks in it waiting for the right woman to smooth them over. Knox is blown away by the kind, fierce, intelligent, beauty that is Naomi. The way in which their story unfolded was compelling, what a journey and what a wonderful array of characters that made this so much more than just a slow burn reluctant love story.

“Maybe I like being the hero for once.”

Smalltown romances are one of our favourites, add a grumpy hero whose actions speak louder than his words, intense chemistry with an adorable strong, and funny heroine as well as a bit of suspense and humour and well… we’re in reading heaven. We cannot convey how much we loved this book. It just ticked all the boxes for us. We’ve read Lucy Score before and fallen in love with her words, but this is our favourite by this Author, and we cannot wait for Nash and Lucien’s books now!

“You’ve got a big heart, and sooner or later, once all this drama is over, someone is going to look at you and recognize it. And they’re going to want to take care of you for a change.”


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.

“Part of me wants to pretend I have you, but another part thinks I’ll die if you don’t tell me you love me, even if it doesn’t change anything. Even if it’s just getting to hear it one more time.”


‘It’s such a simple word – just four letters. Home. But there aren’t enough letters in the alphabet in the world to capture the meaning of it.’

SWEET MEMORY (The Painted Daisies #1) by LJ EVANS

“I’m afraid I’ll fall completely, head-over-heels in love with you, and that you’ll fall back. I’m afraid we’ll discover we’re the missing pieces of each other’s souls.
The words had a beat -a rhythm- like it was a song she’d already written.
