Book Review: We Were On A Break by Lindsey Kelk 

A few years ago, I came across Lindsey Kelk's 'I Heart' series, and as I worked my way through the 6 books in the series, I was delighted with Lindsey's witty writing style. I became a fan of hers, and I'm always happy to read anything she writes. (If you haven't read the 'I Heart' series and want a laugh, then I suggest you check it out!)
I picked up her latest book, We Were On A Break, from my library last week. 

Liv and Adam are in a long-term relationship and away on a holiday in Mexico. It is their last day of their trip, and Adam is planning to propose.
He'd confided to his brother before the trip, who in turn told his wife.
His wife 'accidentally' told Liv as she happens to be Liv's best friend!
So, unbeknownst to Adam, Liv has been waiting not-so-patiently for him to propose throughout the duration of their holiday.
When it gets to their final night and things don't go as planned, their frustrations and lack of proposal see them having a confrontation which results in them taking a break.
What ensues is Adam and Liv both trying to find themselves, without much luck!
The story is narrated by both Adam and Liv, which I enjoyed, but it was a little confusing at times as the narrators change mid-way during a chapter. It would've been much easier to have the characters narrate a chapter each.
Whilst I could envision the way the story was heading, it didn't deter me from reading, as like Kelk's other books, this one has some very funny lines and scenes.
The characters are flawed, which always appeals to me as it makes them more relatable.
Overall, I really enjoyed this book, and it is perfect if you're after a light-hearted and funny book.

Have you read any books by Lindsey Kelk? 
And are you ready for Christmas?
