Summary

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 opinions, 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?

Very slow, quite unbelievable and dissapointing

i have read many of Lindsey Kelk's books so was excited to listen to this one. this was my first audio book of Lindsey although i have read the i heart series and a few others, i was extremely dissapointed with this book, it took me a few months to complete it and that is only because i am stubborn with books and wont give up on them, i listened to several books in between this one and felt the story to be very far fetched, quite boring, the male lead character to be unlikable and generally very flat, the end finally arrived and i just felt relieved i could move on to another book, i wont spoil the end but its really is nothing to write home about,. i was dissapointed with the book, but that of course is just my opinion, i wouldn't really waste a credit on it but if it comes up in an offer, maybe give it a go?

Slow going at times

Interesting story but slow going for me at times, some bits made me laugh out loud, great when on the motorway, but most of the time to slow for me

Really liked the plot

I very nearly quit listening to this one as the narrators were frustratingly slow (may be suitable for some, but I found it unbearable). then switched the speed up to 1.3 amd all was great. Interesting plot with a few twists, hillarios bits, liked the male/female thinking sounded out... overall thoroughly enjoyed.
