Summary

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 30 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.

Love is ageless

Finally. A thick story in the sense that it actually holds a real grip with reality.
It had great writing, good story, fine characters and excellent fiction mixed with steam, angst, humor and s e x .
Thanks Mrs Score, I needed that.

I just loved this book

I just loved this book. It is sweet, funny and, sometimes, steamy too. The story is intriguing, the back and forth between Knox and Naomi is either hilarious or steamy (sometimes both). Knox relationship with his staff is very funny and I just love how much of a grumpy hero he is. I was hooked the entire book. I would highly recommend but the audiobook with the kindle book and doing hybrid reading (perfection). Sebastian and Lila's performances were outstanding, their narration made the story even better.

Liked it

I suppose it’s because I’ve read books like this before, but it didn’t live up to the hype. I liked the grovelling a lot, it was better than most books that tried the same trope. I hope that Lucian gets his own story soon. The twists and turns were a nice filler for the romance although I did except one or two things. At the end of the day it was a really good read.

Pretty cover.. that’s it

*contains spoilers*
I hate to say I really didn’t enjoy this book. It was slow and predictable. There were so many unnecessary characters and scenes, like why did we need a random poker scene?? I didn’t like Knox’ attitude and I thought he was borderline controlling. There was also so many inconsistencies in his behaviour. Why was he calling Naomi ‘baby’ so early on? The fake dating wasn’t necessary. It felt like the author tried to pack in too much. I found myself listening on 1.3 to try and speed it up.

Great book

Wow. This book was so much more than I possibly could imagine. It broke my heart at times and also made me laugh. The characters were fabulous and entertaining. It had drama, suspense and love throughout and also lots of humour. Fabulous narration too

Awful

I got half way through and realized this book was nonsense. I did not enjoy listening to the male narrator. Knox is a deplorable character and I was disgusted by the way the author condones objectifying women. I could not listen to this because it was upsetting, to me and I’m not a prude. The Knox character does not fit the traditional rom-com rules, which I’m all for, but I cannot root for someone I find disgusting.

Great story and narration!

Things We Never Got Over introduces us to a small town in Virginia - Knockemout, and it’s eclectic mix of residents. In true Lucy Score fashion, the author masterfully created yet another quirky community that I absolutely adored. Our protagonists, Naomi and Knox, as well as the dynamic cast of secondary characters are sure to immediately capture your heart.

“Sometimes you don’t need a history to see the future”.

The story is mainly enemies to lovers, with a bit of a mistaken identity but most importantly it’s about taking chances and being brave when love comes calling.
This book has all the hallmarks of a perfect romcom - love, swoon, steam, intrigue, grumpy hero and sunshine heroine, meddling, well meaning friends snd guaranteed HEA.
The narration by Sebastian York and Lila Winters is phenomenal, they have a way of bringing you into the story and making you feel like you are an active participant.
I definitely recommend Things We Never Got Over to all romcom enthusiasts!

Cringe

The narrators are great but I could barely get through it. A lot of the ideas are recycled - everything from Kristen Ashley to “Overboard”. The main character is annoying, she’s wound very tight and honestly I wouldn’t want to spend 5 minutes with her. As for the guy, every other page he’s described as a Grumpy Viking. Yes, understood, it’s the grumpy neighbor trope. EXCEPT once a month, during “Code Red”, when he brings his female bartenders stick-on heating pads and brownies and calls his female staff the “Synched Sisters”. Because he TRACKS THEIR CYCLES. As for the waitresses, they apparently will eat anything not nailed down during this week and spend every day crying in the kitchen. The whole “pretend relationship” plot FIRST STARTS around page 250. So get ready for a slow burn. A slow, slow, slow, slow….well, you get the idea. And there was never was a truly legit reason that she fought against just having a normal relationship with Knox. So in conclusion: annoying, cringe, long and confusing. Dog was cute.

Wow loved 10/10

When I first started this book I was scared because people said it was slow and foul language. I think the language really reflected the different personalities of the two main characters well. I feel like it was a feel good funny amazing story that I couldn’t get enough of. If you want action, love, spice, and drama this book is def for you!!!

One of the stupidest books I’ve ever read!

I cannot in my right mind waste more of my time on this stupid book, so this review has to be short, and therefore, I won’t list all the things wrong with this “literary” abomination, but rest assured, there are A LOT! There are billions of people in this world, and unfortunately, the stupid outnumber the smart. That must be the only reason this book is so hyped up, and has such great reviews—stupid people must have a lot of time on their hands! This was extremely long and repetitive, for no reason other than to showcase another idiot heroine, another Neanderthal hero, and another nonexistent (or ridiculously stupid) plot. This is my second book by this author, and probably my last. Writers need to do their job, and just write a good story! Stop grasping at straws to either brainwash their readers and try to mold their brains with personal opinion easter eggs throughout their writing, or write any garbage they can think of to stay relative in their field, or make a few bucks. I paid $5 for the audiobook on sale, and I wish I would’ve just bought myself a coffee (with the amount of times the heroine in this book mentions she needs coffee)! 🙄🤦🏻‍♀️😤

I allllmost got to the end but will just save like two hours of my life

OTT ridiculousness, and not in a cute/funny/hot way. The storytelling just seemed bad, like the characters had no depth.
The MC Naomi is exactly the kind of MC that I’m constantly rolling my eyes at, especially since she’s 36 but from the ridiculousness of literally everything about her, it makes her seem more like 20.
Save your credit.
Not even Sebastian York’s sinfully sexy voice can redeem this one.

Great story ruined

The story line in this book was great, which was the only reason why I listened all the way through, While I am not a prude, the number and detail of the sex scenes were ridiculous and really took away from the story. You would just be getting into the story and you would be put through detailed descriptions of sex. While one or 2 are ok, 30% of the book was devoted to this junk. I just started fast forwarding through them so I could get back to the story. I will not be listening to any other books by this author.
