Things We Never Got Over Audible Audiobook – Unabridged
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.

ALL the characters are great, especially the MC’s Naomi and Knox. I absolutely love the way Lucy describes Naomi’s first impressions of Knox… as “the blonde god of sexy fury who looked like he’d just stormed off a marauding Viking vessel”. 🥵🔥
Naomi is such an awesome character. She is so loving and caring, and always puts everyone else’s needs before her own. We get to witness her beautiful selfless personality when she gives up everything to go to the aid of her twin sister Tina, who lives in the small town of Knockemout, just outside of DC. So many things happen in the book that will keep you entertained and glued to the pages, and I guarantee you’ll love every minute of it.
The storyline has a great ending, it’s exactly what you want from a romance book, and the dedication in the end is undeniably heartbreaking… but the bonus epilogue she leaves us with right at end is what makes this book fabulous!
Read this book… you’ll love it!
Both main characters have tons of baggage which makes their individual stories interesting and watching them come together was so enjoyable.
Knox is happy with things the way they are. He wants nothing to do with Naomi but can’t stop helping her.
Naomi is having a bad day, no a bad week and it just keeps getting worse. Running from her wedding, having her twin sister steal her stuff and leave her with an 11 year old niece she knew nothing about is quite enough.
But then there’s the grumpy and rude guy who won’t stop helping her. Knox and Naomi’s banter is on point which just escalates the spark between them.
I couldn’t put this one down. The more the story progressed the more I wanted. As with a Lucy Score world there are delightful side characters and a couple of them are begging for their own stories.
Read this if you enjoy reluctant hero’s, capable but chaotic heroines, quirky towns filled with eccentric folk and a story of two people who have to be brave to get their happily ever after.
My favourite things about this book:
➡️ all the characters were over 30
➡️ the characters were complex, the world building in this book was 🤌🤌
➡️ I didn't just love the main characters, I loved EVERY character in this book. They all had a role to play and played it to perfection
➡️ I literally laughed out loud in scenes
➡️ there were no unnecessary scenes or scenes where I felt the mc's inner monologue dragged on
Although I don't think there were any moments that specifically made me go OMG, the book as a whole just had me coming away from it feeling great - like the way you feel after watching a feel good movie.
I would definitely read a book based on Lucian if Lucy Score decided to write one. Fingers crossed it would be darker. Oh, that would be perfection!
I put this book on another author's "what are you reading" post on Facebook, then I felt the need to give it a bit of background, as the title sounds quite heavy, I felt like that might put people off checking it out, so said it's a rom com. Now, I'm thinking, did I describe that wrong?
Well it is funny, it has romance, so yeah I don't think I'm wrong. It does deal with some heavy stuff too, shitty parenting, child abandonment, attempted murder, so don't expect it to be all laughs. I like a bit of drama so thumbs up from me.
Now, in real life I don't have much time for grumpy people, but the grumpy/sunshine trope does tend to suck me in every time, contrary? Probably.
I definitely identified with Naomi/Daisy, and enjoyed seeing her sorting out her life.
Knox was great in his grumpy way, it was really amusing when you could see how in deep he was with Naomi/Daisy while all the while denying it.
Yeah it is a little annoying when the male best friend has to be gay, girls can have straight male best friends too, the guy one is just a little bit overdone in books in my opinion, but I loved Stef's character, he was a hoot.
Lots of other good supporting characters too.

I guess those who read and reviewed this book don't care about the liberal use of the F word. There is very little use for this word unless someone is pouring vegetable oil on your stomach while attempting to rape you and you kick their manhood as hard as you can tells them to get the F off you.
It could have been good but it was pure trash and I only read 4 chapters!!
I was attracted to the cover with the daisies. It looked different to other romance books with hot men or couples. And the book is different - it has more emotional depth, more wisdom, more humour, more likeable characters and hot but flawed guys. There is a whole cast of great secondary characters and I hope there are follow up books about mysterious Lucian (Lucy) and whatever is going on with sassy Librarian Sloane and about Knox's brother Nash.
Naomi's 11 year old niece has had a difficult childhood with her mum, Tina (the evil twin). But she has turned out likeable, smart, mature and funny. The relationship between her and her Aunt Naomi (the good twin) and Knox is at the heart of the book and it is heartwarming story. There are lots of people and dogs in this book who come together to protect and support Naomi and her niece - family by birth and by choice - and it makes the book feel warm, loving and fun, despite the difficult start Naomi's niece has had.
I can't wait for more Knockemout books and in the meantime I will be reading more Lucy Score books!
Lucy Score has absolutely excelled herself with this book, I loved every single main character and side character, I’m honestly so glad it said at the end there’s more to come from Knockemout because I’m not ready to leave this small town at all.
I was gripped from the get go of being introduced to Naomi who really enters with all the drama and sass, I loved her immediately. Knox follows quickly and I absolutely loved him and their first encounter, you could feel their chemistry straight away but definitely not insta-lovey, the tension was fantastic.
Waylay oh how you made me feel so much, I loved the growth she took and the huge family unit she ended up gathering along the way.
Now Knox made me mad when he called things off and I gasped, voice noted my friend in outrage and had to take 5. For me there wasn’t enough grovelling on his behalf but I did like how he knew immediately he made a mistake.
I want to live in Knockemout and I can’t wait for the next book whoever it may be.. I’m secretly hoping it’s Lucy and Sloane and I hope Nash gets a happily ever after too! Loved the sibling rivalry and relationship.
