New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Lucy Score returns to Knockemout, Virginia, following fan-favorite Things We Never Got Over with Knox’s brother Nash’s story. Nash Morgan was always known as the good Morgan brother, with a smile and a wink for everyone. But now, this chief of police is recovering from being shot and his Southern charm has been overshadowed by panic attacks and nightmares. He feels like a broody shell of the man he once was. Nash isn’t about to let anyone in his life know he’s struggling. But his new next-door neighbor, smart and sexy Lina, sees his shadows. As a rule, she’s not a fan of physical contact unless she initiates it, but for some reason Nash’s touch is different. He feels it too. The physical connection between them is incendiary, grounding him and making her wonder if exploring it is worth the risk. Too bad Lina’s got secrets of her own, and if Nash finds out the real reason she’s in town, he’ll never forgive her. Besides, she doesn’t do relationships. Ever. A hot, short-term fling with a local cop? Absolutely. Sign her up. A relationship with a man who expects her to plant roots? No freaking way. Once she gets what she’s after, she has no intention of sticking around. But Knockemout has a way of getting under people’s skin. And once Nash decides to make Lina his, he’s not about to be dissuaded…even if it means facing the danger that nearly killed him.

    Score has a way of making a fictional world come alive in vivid color, and there’s none more lively than Knockemout, VA. For a small town, this place is full of excitement, with colorful characters that make you want to keep reading just to see what happens to them., Nash Morgan, chief of police, hasn’t been himself since being shot on the job. Despite still healing from his injury, he takes the job of protecting his town seriously, yet it’s all he can do to show up and go through the motions. That is, until he gets to know his new neighbor. Just being in her orbit calms him and makes him feel alive., Lina Solavita is in town temporarily, until she can complete the assignment for the insurance company she works for, and her investigation has lead her to Knockemout. It helps that her good friend and the guy she dated for a minute in college, Knox Morgan, lives there since it gives her a cover for being in town without having to reveal her hand., There’s a lot to love about this one, but there were some things I was unimpressed by. Although it took until past halfway for things to get steamy, once they started it seemed like Lina and Nash were constantly going at it so much that it felt gratuitous and really didn’t move the story along. (This will be a plus for some of you.😉) I was disappointed that Lina was the fix for Nash’s issues rather than him working things out on his own and for himself, and some of the male-female power struggles were tiring. Then there’s the nod to inclusivity, and I’ll be glad when the handful of contemporary romance writers who have changed their writing this way realize that by including controversial topics not pivotal to a story, they’re excluding a whole group of readers who have a different viewpoint., There were enough things that still made this a fun read for me. I love the quirks, charm, and uniqueness of small-town Knockemout, and the geriatric neighbor, Mrs. Tweedy, is pure comic gold. She’s freaking brilliant and stole most every scene she was in. The rest of the characters are larger than life, authentic, and relatable, with bad-a$$ Lina being my favorite. The excitement of the drama and suspense had me on the edge of my seat and putting the book down at this point wasn’t even a consideration. I’m talking epic, and Lina really shines here. And the epilogue? It’s the sweetest, most heartfelt but still humorous cherry on top of this phenomenal romance sundae. And trust me, you’re going to want to get your hands on the bonus epilogue!, All in all, this is a fun, entertaining read full of laugh-out-loud humor and tons of touching, relatable emotion. You’ll be charmed by the town of Knockemout and fall head over heels for the people there. Full of heart, heat and humor, this one will give you hours of enjoyment during your reading escape.

    It’s hard to know where to start with this review – I knew Nash and Lina were going to be amazing, but this amazing?? From the moment Lina stepped into Knox’s bar in Things We Never Got Over, I think we all knew she was an absolute dynamo. What I didn’t realize was, she would become my spirit animal., And Nash? The wounded, broody, super sweet hero really got me. As growly as Knox is, Nash is open and honest and swoony. However, after his devastating injury at the end of TWNGO, he’s floundering – trying to figure out how to recover and get back to himself. Moving on isn’t as easy as he’d like, and his inconvenient attraction to Lina isn’t helping…or so he thinks. Lina is more complicated than she lets on and both of them have their secrets close to the vest. Watching the two of them navigate their relationship is both hot and hilarious – the things that Lina says made me laugh out loud and their chemistry is explosive. Like have a fan near your Kindle hot…., There are too many things to count when I try to list what I love about Lucy Score’s books, but one of my favorite things is her secondary characters. So many times she writes characters that make you desperate for more, and with Things We Hide From the Light, we get more of Knox, Naomi and Waylay in addition to all the goodness that is Nash and Lina. It’s like a warm hug from your favorite grandma – it’s THAT good. Plus, we’re treated to more of the tension between Sloane and Lucian, who you just KNOW are going to be explosive. This book was the perfect continuation in the Knockemout series and it leaves you feeling both insanely happy for Nash and Lina and rabid for more Lucian and Sloane. Obviously you don’t have to read Things We Never Got Over before you read this book, but why wouldn’t you? You can’t go wrong with this series!!!

    Lucy Score always charms me with her witty romanticism. Her stories never fail to give me those feel-good butterflies, a heart full of hope and love. She seamlessly blends her gentle humor with so much sincere and heartfelt emotion to create reading experiences that are so magical. The small town charm, the banter, the captivating plots, the character chemistry! They all fuse so delectably in Things We Hide from the Light, the second in the Knockemout world. And what a lovely follow-up is simply enchanting. Yet another triumphantly loveable outing from the impeccable Lucy Score!, I ADORED TWNGO, so I was so excited to dive into this story, this time the story of smalltown police chief Nash Morgan and his effervescent neighbor (and his brother’s ex) Lina. This had all of those small town, opposites attract, grumpy-sunshine dynamics. Nash is deliciously ornery on the surface, but his grumpiness is just a way to mask his struggles. He’s broody, recovering, and a little bit lost at times. Whereas Lina is sassy and bright- she’s fun and vivacious, but she’s also closed off herself. Her secrets are buried deep, buried under her light. And that makes them such a dynamic couple to read about- two seemingly polar opposites who are burying their own pain and struggles in personality extremes., The chemistry is classic Lucy- a great balance of tension and banter with so much heart. It’s SLOWER burn (a bit slower than I prefer, to be honest), but the payoff is worth the wait. Their slzzle combusts into a spicy but oh so sweet connection. I loved how they both bring new life and purpose to one another, help the other work through their baggage. Lucy brings humor and fun with soul deep emotion, and I love all of the side characters in this world- and the glimmers of future stories to come. And that epilogue was swoony perfection- I was all up in my feels. Another feel-good, page turning, delightfully sweet story from Lucy Score- a fantastic getaway from the real world!
