Lucy Score’s Thing We Never Got Over is a warm romantic novel that gathers many positive reviews and high recommendations from its readers. Told in the first-person point of view, this 496-page literary piece was a must-read for those who are craving an enticing story that will live up to the hype just by reading the first chapter.
The plot focuses on two completely opposite adults, who met by chance in a small town in Knockemout, Virginia. Naomi Witt, a runaway bride who just came out from a toxic relationship, wanting to live a new life by herself, and Knox Morgan, a bar owner with a bad-boy stubborn attitude.
A veteran author like Score truly strategized the outline for this gem, the theme was mainly romance with a sprinkle of family issues and introspection. Such profound elements were included to give enough justice for the characters’ development.

Little did she know, Tina has an eleven-year-old daughter named Waylay. Left with no choice, Naomi had to take responsibility for the child and find a new job for a living.
She worked in a bar where she met Knox, a man who bought the place since he won the lottery a couple of years ago. His instant riches caused conflict with his brother, Nash. Amidst his life status, he only wanted to live a simple life and spend his leisure time with his basset hound.

In the later chapters of Things We Never Got Over, Naomi wanted to fix the wrongs that her twin sister did. So she made a way to call her parents and told them about Waylay. Of course, Know was always there to make things possible for her. Her parents went to the small town to meet the kid and finally reunite with her.
As things become smooth for her, Knox’s grumpy nature was no longer an issue to her as the two get along well. In spite of the fact that they were not vocal about their feelings for each other, the two had sex without playing hard to get. However, they were still not labeling the kind of relationship they had.

Part 3: Ending to Things We Never Got Over
Although Things We Never Got Over has a sequel that is about to come out this year, I still could not get over it this run-of-the-mill story. The main character’s complexity and flaws made them more relatable. I could easily say that this one was a memorable read.
More than just a typical romantic drama story, this one promised a new perspective on love. That it can also take place no matter what your age is. It is surreal, a kind of fulfillment that any individual deserves to indulge in. Truly love moves in mysterious ways and so changes people in the least expected moment.
