We Were On A Break By Lindsey Kelk – Review And Giveaway

We Were On A BreakLindsey Kelk is back with a new book called ‘We Were On A 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? More importantly, do they want to?

Lindsey is back with another book that is guaranteed to make your smile and forget about the troubles of life. in her latest book, we are introduced to young couple Adam and Liv who are just finishing off their holiday in Mexico, it’s on this holiday that Liv is convinced that Adam is going to propose to her especially since her best friend Cassie told her it was going to happen. But instead of the pair of them coming back to England as an engaged couple, there is a bit of mix up and they come back on a break. The story then follows the lives of the couple as they adapt to being no longer part of couple and both wonder how it all went wrong even though they are both in love with each other.

‘We Were On A Break’ is another fine example of Lindsey’s witty and fun writing, again she has created a story that has engaging and relatable characters that makes for genuine entertaining reading. Chapters alternate between Adam and Liv and this give an interesting insight into how differently men and women think when it comes to relationships.

As the couple deal with the sudden upheaval in their lives, both Adam and Liv have the time to reflect on their future and decide what their goals are and around them they have a strong network of friends and family and all these characters add an element of humour to the tale.

With a fabulously bright and vibrant cover, the plot line of the story is not quite the traditional romantic tale which the reader might expect but it is quite a tender story in parts, so it does keep the reader on their toes. Filled with delicious characters, funny and realistic situations plus a cat by the name of Daniel Craig this book is a fresh and romantic comedy which highlights the pressures of relationships and society written in a fresh and frank manner.

For fans of Lindsey’s previous book series, ‘I Heart’ and ‘Girl’, this standalone story is a sparkling witty and fun tale from page one, ’We Were On A Break’ is another brilliant fast paced story from Lindsey Kelk.

You can buy We Were On a Break from Amazon and is available to buy from good bookshops.
