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.

Liezel’s Thoughts:

Lucy Score never disappoints to deliver the best of the best for small-town romance. Case in point, Things We Never Got Over. Oh, let me tell you ALL the things that I loved about this magnificent story.

I loved how the author caught my immediate attention when she introduced the main characters of the story. I wondered why Knox was so intense and how Naomi landed in such a terrible predicament. So many things pilled up against her. I had to know how she would get out of such a bad situation. I felt like she took everything in stride, and as the story went on, I admired her more and more.
I loved the romance between the two characters. Knox had his moments, but once he got over it, he didn’t hesitate to claim what was his.

The best thing about the story is how the supporting characters aided the couple. This is what I love about small-town romances -meeting the unforgettable personalities that come along the way. So many of them made such a great impression. I am excited to see how far the author takes them.

If you are looking for a heart-warming story that will have you shedding a tear one moment, gasping the next, and shedding a tear between – read this book! Or anything is written by this author, for that matter.

The Verdict:
