Loved the book ! Very well written and characters (there’s quite a few) are so endearing ! The love story, the war in the main characters life, being torn between all her dilemmas and having literally her own self being her worst enemy because, she just can’t stop thinking for others and never takes care of her self. Quite touching.
The but comes for the love interest. While I love it when a grumpy guy becomes a lover or even the quite sensible persona, I thought it was a little too much to be frank. There were moments where it was almost alarming and toxic.. the Neanderthal took sometimes over the cute level of grumpiness we all love.
Other but will be the end… yes I shed a tear but at the end, with a little recoil, it was just too packed up and too perfect… like everyhing, literally everything ended up like in a fairy tale and each of the problems got solved, many couples got created and don’t make me start on the house mariage kid combo that happened waaaay too fast. The fact that her husband is in the headset « if you want something I’ll make it happen, I’ll give it to you, you’ll get it » opposes the beginning of the book where the main character aspires to a life of independency and wants to be able to take care of her self. The book literally ends on the guy taking care of the girl in the most manly, sexist way possible and it was a little disappointing for me.
I really love the " bad boy/ lover" kind of book. This one is perfectly written. All the characters are lovely, and we can really read chemistry between the two main. There is action, love, a true family story with issues. I recommand this book.
Rating : 4 ⭐. Review : That book was really great! I was scared of the book's length but it went rather quickly so I'm happy! I love the grumpy x sunshine trope, so fine 👌🏻 (Knox is SO fine 👌🏻)! Overall, I really liked the book, and I want a book on Lucian & Sloane's story, that's it!
I loved this book so much !!!!! The characters are so amazing ! The suspense is so good and keeps you on the edge ! Written so damn well ! Couldn’t stop reading ! Definitely recommend this book if you want hot smutty scenes, amazing character development !!!!
Things we never got over is one of those imperfect books, with some aspects that irritate me, but which are nevertheless very addictive and that I devour. To start with the positive, I loved the little town spirit where everyone takes care of everyone, defends their friends, helps a lot. I fell for the heroine's niece (Naomi's niece), because despite a childhood without the attention and affection she deserved, she is courageous and strong, she is very mature while having deep down inside her needs of a girl her age, she manages to trust people she has just met. She is not an unimportant secondary character, she is really at the heart of the story and quickly takes a place in the lives of the protagonists. I was happy for her because she ended up having a real family who would do anything for her. I loved most of the secondary characters: Naomi's parents and her perfect best friend, Knox's brother, his best friend, his grandmother, and his employees. Naomi's story with her sister is well thought out, there is suspense, anger and twists. Her sister has disappeared and initially we don't know why, or where, or if she will return. We also wonder how she could have left her 11-year-old daughter behind. There are surprises in the revelations, even if the ending is a bit far-fetched. Naomi needs attention, love, to be accepted as she really is. Her unequivocal decision to take care of her niece when she didn't even know she existed until then is just admirable. She immediately feels responsible, she puts her first, she wants to make her happy and give her everything she never had. Their relationship is wonderful. My opinion on Knox is more mixed. He is protective, he likes to growl but does everything to help others. He's amazing with Naomi's niece. But he sometimes goes too far in his alpha side. Not to mention he quietly donates money to the library to hire Naomi. I like that the heroines are independent, autonomous and not that her man saves her with his fortune. Money shouldn't be the answer to everything, especially in a new couple. Although I loved Knox employees, I found that sometimes they went too far. Few employers would tolerate this kind of behavior. In addition, women who have their period at the same time and who must be left alone because they become irritable... It's a bit cliché! When you're at work, you don't put your colleagues through your moods by telling them "shut up, I'm on my period". Another concern: Knox goes too abruptly from "Naomi is great" to "I'm leaving Naomi". I can understand his reasoning, but the author presents it too abruptly. And at the end, he doesn't grovel enough. In short, an imperfect story but with nice touches of humor, a bit of suspense, two beautiful families, wonderful friends and the desire to know more about certain secondary characters.
Where do I even start ? I laughed, I cried and I fell in love. The characters are painfully human and relatable, and some of these words will haunt me forever. Decided to read it after seeing one quote on TikTok (one sentence with no context was enough to convince me, yes) and didn’t regret it for a single second.
I've read Lucy Score's romance before but if I didn't see her name boldly printed on the cover I would question if Things We Never Got Over was really written by her! Don't get me wrong this novel contains the same fog -the - mirrors steam as her other romances. Her bad boy hero (Is that an oxymoron?) Knox still made me drool as I pictured him standing there in front of me naked chest, low slung jeans and barefoot. But Things you Never Got Over touched me on a personal level I have never experienced when reading a Lucy Score novel before. Her heroine, Naomi, was so relatable, she could have been me.
Roberta Flack once sang a haunting ballad called "Killing Me Softly". The lyrics hit a chord with me at the time as I had just met a stranger who I felt knew me soul deep, though we had never met before. The line, " ...I thought he found my letters and read each word aloud..." kept coming to mind as I read about Naomi and her attempts to take care of everyone she loved even knowing she may end up being screwed in the end. Things We Never Got Over could have been my autobiography! And as such I hung on every word that Lucy Score had written, dying to see if Naomi could do a better job of balancing self-care with her innate caregiver drive.
Lucy Score had to have written this romance from somewhere deep within her heart, maybe even her soul. There would be no other way to be able to express the deep emotions of her characters, especially the invisible ties between Knox and his brother, Naomi and her sister, and the soul deep love that Knox and Naomi shared. How Lucy Score made those fictional people real with the use of mere words takes talent. Talent like only master storytellers have.
I found this book in a list of the best books of 2022 on Amazon. I can see why it was a bestseller. I am so glad I stumbled on it. The fact that it was on Kindle Unlimited and therefore I could add it to my growing TBR pile was a wonderful bonus.
I cried, I laughed and finally I sighed as Naomi and Knox found their happily ever after. And I know it was a work of fiction, to me a work of art, I finished the book that there was hope for born caregivers, people pleases such as myself. That with help of those who love us unconditionally, we too, can learn to find our own happiness.
A "Killing Me Softly" experience awaits you. Pick up "Things We Never Got Over" and see for yourself.
“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!
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.”
This book totally surprised me! I certainly didn't expect to love it as much as I did, it was that good!!
So the story follows Naomi who runs away from her wedding and goes to a small town in Virginia to "rescue" her twin sister, Tina. What Naomi doesn't know is that Tina hasn't made the most positive impression on the neighborhood, so Naomi isn't exactly greeted with open arms.
While Naomi is busy meeting her sister, Tina on the other hand takes her time to steal Naomi's car, her money and... leaves behind her 11 year-old daughter at Naomi's care. Exactly what one would hope to get, right?
Here enters a local barber named Knox - who despite not liking the drama, can't ignore the fact that Naomi's life just got a teeny tiny bit more complicated and offers to help.
The story follows a grumpy x sunshine, enemies-to-lovers, small town romance tropes and by that I should've known I'd love this book immensely.
Knox is a perfect gentleman, he's very sweet (even though he is a grumpy one), he's amazing with Naomi's niece, he's a local superhero whom you absolutely cannot love. Naomi is a fighter, strong, sweet and caring. She definitely annoys the hell out of Knox, but somehow they work so well together.
This was my first book by Lucy Score and I cannot wait to get my hands on "Things We Hide From The Light" which will follow the story of Knox' brother, Nash. Ahhh it'll be so good!
