Things we never got over - Lucy Score review


Knox Morgan doesn't tolerate drama, especially in the form of a stranded runaway bride.

Naomi Witt is on the run. Not just from her fiancé and a church full of well-wishers, but from her entire life. Although if you ask her, Naomi's riding to the rescue of her estranged hot mess of a twin, Tina, to Knockemout, 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 behind something unexpected: the niece Naomi didn't know she had. Now she's a guardian to an eleven-year-old-going-on-thirty with no car, no money, and no plan.

There's a reason this bearded, bad-boy barber doesn't get involved with high-maintenance women, especially not Type-A romantic ones. But since Naomi's life imploded right in front of him, the least Knox 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 quiet, solitary life.

At least, that's the plan.

The next Tiktok sensation where I wanted to be able to decide for myself whether Tiktok was right, or totally wrong. Full of excitement I flew into it....

I have to say that next to 'People we meet on vacation' this is the best book I have read this year and this summer. It is a great book that leaves you craving for more stories like this one. This book was like a drug for me. I started making excuses so I could read it. The sparks between Naomi and Knox crackle and this thrill makes you want to continue reading.

The ending, in my opinion, I found perhaps a little TE unrealistic, but it didn't bother me while reading. Indeed, I find it quite far fetched, but because of the suspense and thrill of the book, I read through it without being bothered by it.

This book is definitely worth its 5 stars! I have to agree with Tiktok. This is an absolute must read. I am already looking forward to the next book "Things we hide from the light".

And now I am also already looking forward to the third book, because I just saw that there is also going to be a third book that will follow Lucian and Sloane. :o
