WE WERE ON A BREAK by Lindsey Kelk
October 6th 2016, Harper Collins
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?
Lindsey Kelk is one of my favourite authors. Her books are always fun, light hearted and easy to read and We were On a Break was no exception.
I loved how it is written in both points of view of Liv and Adam. It adds a new dynamic to the story to know what each is thinking and how the situations are seen through each others eyes.
The thing I enjoyed most about We Were on a Break is how easy it explains how situations get misunderstood depending on how you look at it. The big thing in this story is how the characters are all so quick to jump to conclusions and how stories getting twisted in an individual version.
Lindsey is always good at writing fun characters that are easy to relate to and that’s definitely the case here. I think alot of readers will resonate with Liv and how she feels her life has gotten away on her. The male leads are always to die for and Adam also falls into this catergory although he is very likeable and adds a good comedic value.
I did find it was a little frustrating at times! I really just wanted to bang their heads together.
Overall I enjoyed the story and would highly recommend to anyone wanting something slightly different to the girl meets boy type of story.
