We Were on a Break – by Lindsey Kelk

Original Cover
My own copy

The blurb:

Is it a break? Or is it a blip?

LIV and ADAM are in love.
LIV and ADAM are supposed to be getting engaged.
Until ADAM accidently suggests they take a break.
And LIV starts thinking …

Friends, family and bystanders all have an opinion and one complication leads to another as Adam and Liv try to muddle through in this hilarious, heartwarming comedy.

Are they split up - or are they on a break? What exactly are they allowed to get away with? And, most importantly, what do Liv and Adam really want?

My Opinion:

*Book provided by the publisher on NetGalley in exchange for an honest review*

Lindsey Kelk is back, yay!!! She is one of my fave authors, so I’m always really excited about her books!

This story follows Liv and Adam. Liv is a vet and works for her father's veterinary practice and Adam is a carpenter. On a holiday in Mexico Adam planst o propose to Liv (she knows about it). However, the proposal nevers happens and then the drama starts. They see themselves on o break from their relationship, or is it more?! Are they even split up.

It’s a very important journey for both of them to go through. They have to figure out what they actually want in life and in a relationship. Liv’s did handing over the surgery to her, doesn’t make things easier, but the whole storyline was necessary fort hem to find out what’s important to them.

I fell in love with both characters immediately. They both have their flaws and sometimes they made some weird decisions, but that’s what makes them so relatable and authentic. The other characters surrounding these two built a great group around them, which makes the story really exciting! Oh and then there is Daniel Craig (the cat). I love this cat, definitely adds some sparks to the story.

I don’t even know where to start, when it comes to describing how I feel about this book. Lindsey’s writing is witty, romantic, unpredictable, hilarious, clever, energetic, bubbly, vivid and so much more. The storyline has a beautiful flow and is brilliantly put together. For the first time Lindsey involved the male’s perspective in a book and it puts the book on a whole new level. Liv and Adam take turns narrating and it was very interesting to follow Adam around. Lindsey did a great job there.

I devoured every second of this book and I think the ending is FAB and so is the title! The whole book is actually! :) 


My possible cast:

Liv: Katie Hoaldridge

Adam: Zane Holtz

  1. I have no idea why, probably because of proof cover, but I was sure Adam was black.
    I didn't read the book yet so...
    But I can't wait!! Lindsey Kelk is my favorite author (along with Jane Costello) and I was a bit sad when I was declined for an ARC, but fortunately the book comes out in a few days and I am so excited to read it! :)
