Title: Things We Never Got Over
Author: Lucy Score
Release Date: January 13, 2022
Knox is a badass, bar-owning barber who prefers to live his life the way he takes his coffee: Alone. Well, except for his basset hound, Waylon. He doesn’t tolerate drama (Knox, not Waylon. Waylon loves drama.). Especially not when it comes in the form of a stranded runaway bride.
Naomi answered her estranged–some would say evil–twin’s call for help, arriving in rural and rough-around-the-edges Knockemout, Virginia, ready to be the good sister as usual.
Too bad her evil twin hasn’t changed at all. After helping herself to Naomi’s car and cash, Tina leaves her with something unexpected. The 11-year-old niece Naomi didn’t know she had. Dun dun dunnnn!
There are reasons why Knox doesn’t do family drama or high-maintenance women who actually believe in all the bullshit trappings of romance. But since her life imploded right in front of him, the least he can do is help Naomi out of her jam. Even if the uptight good girl is a gigantic pain in his ass. As soon as she stops getting herself into new trouble, he can stop dragging her into his bed and go back to his peaceful, solitary life.
At least, that’s the plan until the trouble turns to real danger.

My Review: *****
A way to start the year is by reading Things We Never Got Over by Lucy Score.
“Bravery it takes for us to love someone when we all know how every love story ends. It’s about choosing love over fear again and again. Showing up and being brave even when we know it’s going to hurt like hell.”
Bearded, bad-boy ?
Relaxed, easy-going ?
Drama free ?
Stranded runaway bride ?
Imploded life ?
Evil twin sister ?
Lucy Score does it again, she hooks you into her story, and you can’t put it down until it’s finished.
