Pause by Kylie Scott

A Review by Wendy
 4 Meant To Be Stars
* * * *

 Spoiler Free

This book takes an idea that would be so out of the realm of every day and creates an insightful, self-realization journey for two people who in their prior lives would never connect. I think this has so much for us to see and learn from with the method is easy to understand, and the importance of seeing who you are and accepting it.

Anna and Leif literally run into each other.
She is hit and her car hits Lief's bike and him. They are taken to the same hospital and over months Anna lays in a coma. It is during this time, her family stays by her bedside. Lief was drawn to this woman he saw locked in a car, was unable to rescue her, and decides to sit every night and read to her.

Anna wakes after many months, time slipped away and with it her marriage. Betrayal happened and cannot and should not be forgiven. Anna is no longer employed, no longer has the friends she thought she did, and her outlook on everything has changed.

Anna decides to go and thank the man she heard about, the man who read to her while she was in the coma, a man who turns out to be nothing like the one she had been married to.

Lief is a tattoo artist, charming, friendly, and hang loose. He is all man and looks are his friends. He is someone any woman would love to know, not only because of his demeanor but because he is just this really cool guy.

When Anna meets Lief, he is careful with her yet also real. They both bond with the shared experiences they have had, they both have adjustments to make mentally and physically. A friendship of sorts develops first and then it becomes so much more.

This has all the elements of a Kylie Scott book, engaging characters, sexy times, and heart.

Kylie Scott decided to use a traumatic experience and hold it up as a mirror for the readers...Are we living our best lives today...are we doing all we could with what we have or maybe we should step out of our self-imposed boxes and do something out of the ordinary.

Well Done.
