Things we never got over
Naomi is a runaway bride who ends up in Knockemout to meet up with her sister. But her sister never shows up. But while Naomi wasn’t paying attention and was too busy fighting with Knox, Tina stole her car and left a kid behind. At first, Knox thinks Naomi is Tina, the woman who ruins everything. But after a while, he is starting to believe her. And he feels the urge to protect and help her.
Knox also does not do relationships, especially not with romantic ones. And just as soon as she stops getting into new trouble he can leave her alone and get back to his peaceful, solitary life.
Before I start writing this review, I want to say that I gave this book a score of 8/10, which is really good. Keep that in mind while you are reading this review.
This book was long! It has almost 600 pages, which is definitely more than the other books I read. Most romance books are around 300-400 pages. It also took me a very long time to finish this book. It felt like it was a never-ending book. Okay, I couldn’t read for two days, because my old e-reader is dead now. But it still felt like the longest book ever. But at the same time, it felt pretty short. I know this sounds weird. But when I was reading, I went through the pages so quickly. When I wasn’t reading I realized how long it actually took me to read this book. I just did not notice that while I was reading this book. I guess, that is a pretty good thing.
However, there was one red flag. Knox is the kind of guy who basically does not take ‘no’ for an answer. When Naomi did not want to get in his car, he just picked her up and put her in the car. He was basically telling her what to do. If that happened in real life, it would have been a major red flag. At the same time, I still feel like Knox was a gentleman. He did not push her to have sex or anything. And he was pushing her to do certain things to help and protect her. But still, I have mixed feelings about this Knox person.
Also, there is a lot of drama in this book. You have the evil twin sister who is a criminal but never told anyone she has an eleven-year-old daughter. And it gets more and more intense towards the end. For a 600-page book, it was never boring. There was constantly something going on. Which I liked obviously.
I found one thing very weird and funny. Someone broke into Naomi and Waylay’s house and a page later, they were helping at a shelter like it was no big deal. I would have freaked out and not been able to do anything before they caught the burglar. But maybe that is just me.
I can definitely see why this is a popular book on social media right now. I enjoyed it. Even though I am sure about Knox’s whole personality. Although, it can be sexy when a guy is trying to protect and help you. But this book was never boring, there was character development and the right amount of steamy scenes. I liked it.
