Author: Lucy Score
Release: February 21, 2023
Genre: Small Town Contemporary Romance


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.

Nash and Lina, what can I say? They both captivated me from the very start and it only grew as the story progressed.

She is a sassy insurance investigator with secrets of her own and he’s an injured small town Sheriff trying to find a reason to keep putting one foot in front of the other. They shouldn’t work, not on paper and not in real life.

But they do.

They totally effing do.

Things We Hide From The Light was a fantastic read that gave me ALL THE FEELS. I laughed out loud and maybe I swiped away a few tears and even put a hand to my heart like an old southern belle. It was a wild ride and I loved every single minute of it.

Did I mention the steam? The heat between Nash and Lina was out of this world hot and it was a super slow burn that was a long time coming. The excitement and fun and all the small town Knockemout characters made this story such a delight and I absolutely cannot wait until book 3 comes out.
