An unpauseable new romance from New York Times bestselling, Audie Award winning author Kylie Scott!
When Anna wakes up from a coma after a car crash, she discovers life has gone on without her. Her husband has been unfaithful—with her best friend—and she’s been long since replaced at work. While her old life is a distant memory, her new life feels like an empty shell. Then she meets the stranger who saved her life during the crash, and he changes everything.
Leif Larsen—tattooist, joker, and player—has his own scars thanks to the crash that put Anna in a coma. Helping her move on from her failed marriage, and create a new life, sounds like a perfect distraction. So when he needs a new roommate, he invites Anna to begin her new life with him.
Although their lives may have been put on pause, together they just might find a way to heal.
This was a very enjoyable friends-to-lovers romance. Man, can you imagine being in a coma after a car accident, waking up ten months later only to find out that your asshole of a husband cheated on you with your best friend while you were out?
I adored Leif who was everything that is good and right in this world. Anna needed a good friend in her life before she could have a relationship again. Leif was smart enough to realize that. I was absolutely on board with their relationship and thought that they complemented one another. With Anna’s growing independence from her husband she started to develop a backbone and I liked that Leif didn’t have anything to do with her empowerment. She was a strong woman in her own right and her ex-husband and former “best” friend didn’t stand a chance.
This book is short and I think it would have benefited from a little more action and depth when it came to Anna’s accident. All we know is that it was a hit and run, there isn’t much speculating or even talk about the guy who caused the accident. So I felt that the resolution came a little bit out of a the blue.
As always Andi Arndt does an amazing job breathing life into all characters. She’s an extraordinary talent and I’ll always go back her works. I haven’t read REPEAT but I’ll fix that stat! If you like sweet, funny, low angst stories PAUSE is a great choice. Kylie Scott’s writing style is so crisp and easy to read, which makes this a fast read!
PAUSE is a complete standalone but connected to Repeat.
