We Were On a Break by Lindsey Kelk
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Is it a break? Or is it a blip?
‘You’ve just had a holiday,’ I pointed out, trying not to yawn. ‘Wasn’t that enough of a break?’
‘I don’t mean that kind of break.’
There’s nothing worse than the last day of holiday. Oh wait, there is. When what should have been a proposal turns into a break, Liv and Adam find themselves on opposite sides of the life they had mapped out.
Friends and family all think they’re crazy; Liv throws herself into work – animals are so much simpler than humans – and Adam tries to get himself out of the hole he’s dug.
But as the short break becomes a chasm, can they find a way back to each other? Most importantly, do they want to?
I love Lindsey Kelk books and have all of them on my bookshelf for me to return too when I need something humourous. We Were On a Break is a stand alone, which I really loved the idea of. Personally the cover of this one doesn't do it for me, but at they say never judge a book by it's cover!
This book has the trademarks that make a Kelk book, the humour, the romance and the story line.
Adam and Liv are on holiday in Mexico and are having an amazing time, Liv has been told by her best friend Cassie, (who is married to Adam's brother) that Adam is going to propose, so all holiday Liz has been waiting in anticipation. Finally it gets to the final night and it never happens. They end up having a massive row on the plane and once home go their separate ways for what Adam calls 'a break'.
The story is continue to be told through both Liv and Adam's perspective interchanging with the chapters. Initially I found this a little difficult to follow as I had to work out which perspective I was reading, but I actually really enjoyed the story being told in this way. Both the characters go through so many emotions in this book and there are times when you just want to bash their heads together. Although the whole story is them 'breaking up' the story seemed to whiz by and I couldn't believe I had almost finished.
I loved all the characters in this book and there are quite a few of them. I especially loved Daniel Craig, can I have him please??
Personally this is not my favourite book by Lindsey but it is still a great read and one that I will be adding to my collection. I recommend you to get yourself a copy if you love Lindsey's writing as this will not disappoint.
I would like to thank the publisher for sending this in exchange for an honest review.
