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 thirty 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.

This book is one of the most hyped books in last year on Instagram and Tiktok and so I wanted to try reading this book to see why there’s so much hype about this book.

Welcome to the Most Hyped Book Review # 2

And is this book worth much hype? Maybe is my opinion.

Naomi comes to Knockemount a small town in Virginia after running away from the wedding. Her evil twin sister Tina asked her to come but Naomi ended up getting robbed by Tina and leaving Tina’s eleven-year-old daughter Waylay in Naomi’s care. Naomi meets Knox Morgan, the bearded grumpy man. The two got on wrong foot but soon they start romantic relationship between them.

If you like Grumpy Loves Sunshine theme, then this book is perfect. If you like watching Hallmark movies, then this book might be perfect. Honestly I enjoyed the plot. But I felt the story was kind of too long for a romance book and there were some spicy scenes in the book. The story is told between Naomi’s and Knox’s POV. Overall, I did enjoy reading this book and although I am not sure whether this book is worth that much of hype. There isn’t any special about the book in my opinion although I enjoyed this book. However, I am looking forward to read the part 2 of the Knockemout series!

Overall this book worth a solid four stars!

Lucy is a Wall Street Journal and #1 Amazon Kindle Store bestseller of romantic comedies and contemporary romance. She grew up in rural Pennsylvania with a lot of time on her hands and a big imagination. She was the oldest of three in a book-obsessed household. Dinners were often spent in silence while family members had their noses buried in books. A passion for writing took hold at five when she taught her brother to write his name on the bathroom door.

She started writing (on paper) in the second grade, first about pilgrims on the Mayflower and over the years graduated to essays, articles, blogs, and finally books. “Pretend You’re Mine” was her runaway hit and she’s been writing full-time ever since.

Non-romance-writing jobs have included event planner, bartender, newspaper lackey, and yoga instructor.

Lucy and Mr. Lucy, enjoy spending time with their 1.7 million nieces and nephews and laying on beaches with umbrella drinks. (
