Things We Left Behind is the final book in the Knockemout series and my absolute favourite in the series. I don’t know why but I am always so intrigued by the mysterious, moody, misunderstood character but man oh man does Lucian deliver in this book. His overprotective and caring attitude towards Sloane over all these years is truly testament to the love he has for her. I think his childhood trauma played a significant role in the man he became but I think it takes an even stronger individual to seek help and the fact that he did that was just the cherry on top for me.

I also really enjoyed the subplot and how it wasn’t just focused on the romance aspect. The one twist really did have me gasping as I didn’t see it happening at all! And don’t even get me started on those epilogues which had me crying happy tears!!
