Review: Never Got Over You by S.L. Scott
Note: An advanced reader copy (ARC) was provided by the author via Wildfire Marketing Solutions.
S.L. Scott is one of those authors whose work I've gravitated to, regardless of what the blurb may say. It's paid, and the latest evidence is in the form of her latest standalone. Never Got Over You is the story that highlights the often mentioned adage "Third time's the charm." Readers are introduced to Natalie St. James and Nick Christiansen. The first time they meet, it's clear that there's something extraordinary about their connection. But she walks away, and she's regretted it every single day since. The next time their paths cross, he wants nothing more than to go after the one that got away, but she's with someone else. What he does next is something that he still wishes he could undo. When the third time Fate has their lives intersecting, will the heavens finally take pity on them and align the stars in hopes that these two get it right and snag their happily-ever-after?
This was a fairly lighthearted read, one that slid in right when I had just finished a slew of heavier, more angst-filled stories. Yes, there's a pinch of angst in Natalie and Nick's story, but nothing gut-wrenching or soul-crushing. This book is a good reminder that whatever is meant to happen happens when the timing is right. The feelings could be there, but if the circumstances aren't where they're supposed to be, then not everything clicks into place. These two main characters were easily likable and there was no denying that they shared the sort of chemistry that may be seen as a once-in-a-lifetime. I loved that all I had to do was sit back and simply enjoy as Natalie and Nick's love story unfolded. They had their stumbling blocks, and they made their share of mistakes, but they proved true love comes (true) to those who wait. 4.5 stars go to Never Got Over You.
