Didn't work for me. Sorry, but too much internal musings. Not enough dialogue. I didn't like being told about the MCs working on their relationship, I wanted to read about. I wanted to get sucked into their struggle. Overall, it was an anticlimactic read.

Thank you, Christine, for the buddy read and allowing me to vent. :) xo

Too too too too too many words. This needs to be pared down by about 2/3. It's just a bloated mass of filler. Unfocused, verbose, lacking in emotional intensity. DNF @30%. ...more

That was different, a romance in which the majority of the book is spent with the two MCs separated and contemplating divorce.

The reason for the divorce was down to one MC being unfaithful on a single occasion while suffering from a period of extreme doubt and possibly depression and while the marriage was floundering.

There are no excuses given for the cheating, no attempt to justify it, just an honest admission of guilt immediately after the fact which led to the point where the story begins.

This story had a promising start. I liked the characters, the situation they found themselves in seemed realistic and I was curious to see how they would deal with what happened. I think it had a potential to be a great story about hurt, healing and giving a relationship a second chance, but it was a bit ruined for me once the MCs started their car trip to their daughter's wedding.

Let me rant for a minute.

Whenever someone’s argument regarding cheating is “it was a mistake, it was one time” I immediately judge their character to be an absolute waste of my time.

Cheating is a choice not a mistake.
Doesn’t matter if it’s one time or one hundred. Your anger and feeling of betrayal is valid. Let no one reduce your legitimate anger to being overdramatic.

Also: when you discover your partner betrayed you, have that self respect to not demean your own worth by doing to someone els

Important supplies for reading L.A. Witt’s Is It Over Yet?: tissues, wine, and a cozy reading spot. Though maybe not in that order. There’s a ton of emotion running through this one and it’s not an easy book to read. The bitter resentment, the overwhelming anger, and the heartbreaking regret set the tone through the entire story. So if you’re looking for an early reprieve, you’re not going to get it.

I’m so sad that this did not work out for me because it was a buddy read. I thought this book would be about the couple confronting the infidelity and working through it but in my opinion the opposite was happening. Too much tip toeing around each other and not enough hashing out what happened. Too much internal dialogue as well. It’s possible that things changed as the book progressed but I had to throw in the towel. Oh and I didn’t like that the author didn’t provide visual context of t
This was done well, and I'm glad I read it. The emotions were heightened because of the cheating-aftermath-premise, and they stayed heightened the whole time.

There were a few things that niggled though - Derek's about-face wasn't as smooth as it could've been, there were times the book got preachy about different issues, and the initial sex scene felt awkward, like it didn't feel right in their situation.

Other things I noticed, but didn't really niggle: Derek is the name of a previous Witt MC. T
*3.5 stars*

I wanted to read this book because I love relationship angst, even more so in established relationships. I have read and LOVED L.A.Witt’s The Distance Between Us and this book definitely moves along these lines.

This is definitely not going to be for everyone because cheating. The MC might have cheated once and confessed immediately, but there is no way around it. It was blatant cheating and if this is a very hard limit for you, then, Is It Over Yet? might not work out. For me cheatin

I don’t know why I’m crying! Must be the good writing. It broke my heart to see these two men navigate a once-in-a-lifetime mistake. I mean, don’t get me wrong, I don’t tolerate cheaters but this story just kind of brought to light that not all cheaters are awful people. I mean, it doesn’t mean actions don’t have consequences. And while I don’t know if I’ll ever fathom why someone would cheat, I think it’s fair to say people are humans. And humans aren’t perfect. Which means peo

I’m not sure what my expectations were for this story, but I like that Witt includes some pretty tried-and-true tropes (road trip, broken relationship, kids) and works them a bit differently than expected. The road trip, for example, starts out like a promising way for our two MCs to patch things up. Rhys and Derek go so far as to be able to share the same space and physical intimacy without too much trouble, courtesy of a little alcohol. The broken relationship is
I *kinda* knew what I was getting into with this one...but...for the love of Pete, it was infuriating!
Rhys and Derek are in the process of splitting up.
We know this going in...and it's the hope that they move forward together instead of going separate paths. But..oh my shit! The drama of the anger/resentment/guilt/helplessness was over the top.
I wanted them to find their way.
I wanted one of them to grovel.
But I wanted them to...move forward!

Tough angst read, what I took from this story is love ❤️ can prevail if you want it enough to work for it and one has to be able to forgive your loved one if you want the relationship to work. This wasn’t easy to read but I’m so glad I did 🥰
At the end of the book I was left feeling warm and happy for Rhys and Derek! 👨‍❤️‍👨
Still amazing the 2nd time reading! 😁
I liked this. I know the subject matter is not for everyone but I'd never read something like this before. It wasn't perfect but I found myself tearing up towards the end so obviously I connected with the MC's. I like reading out of the box stories and this definitely was. I felt bad for everyone involved. I especially liked Derrick because my though process was much like his was throughout the book. Made me think a lot about second chances. I had a few issues with the writing but it wasn't enou ...more

Is It Over Yet? was an impossible book to read without feeling gutted for one reason or another. I must admit before I write my review that I am slightly biased, as I ended a 20-year marriage, one of the reasons due to infidelity. Nor did I completely blame my ex for our split, as I have flaws I've worked very hard to change. Not only that, I left my ex, came back 6 weeks later, then tried for 10 months to rebuild w

To each his own, but the subject matter of this book is a hard limit for me. I read romance for the fantasy. I don’t need this kind of reality in my books.

Honestly… just punch me in the face, it’ll hurt less.

I love, love, love stories like this one, that are so real and honest and hard !! People mess up and make mistakes, who can’t relate to that?

So, we come in to this one, with an already established relationship, Rhys and Derek are married and have been for near on a decade. But during a rough patch, after a few too many drinks, one of them ends up going home with another man. I know cheating stories are a deal breaker for some… and for someon

This book was about the aftermath of a husband cheating.. and I actually felt bad for the one who cheated...How's that happen!?

It starts about 3 months or so after "it" happens and they're still stuck in the same house together. To say things are tense and awkward is an understatement.
On top of which, now they have to road trip to their daughters wedding.


There's an entire range of emotions from both guys and, gah, that was hard, especially in such a small space.

I sweet story of two people coming back together after one of them cheats. I enjoyed this book, and liked Rhys and Derek.

I’m not someone who thinks cheating has to be a deal breaker. I feel as Sara in this book does. Other readers may feel differently.

This.... wasn't great. A lot of staid inner monologues with some slightly more lively conversations. We never really find out the circumstances around problems that arise in the relationship- just guilt/anger/guilt/misunderstandings/guilt/apologies/anger on a loop.

I felt indifferent about whether or not the MCs managed to save their relationship.

Not really recommended (though I've read stuff from this author I liked much more).

This was definitely one of the hardest books I’ve ever read but also one I couldn’t put down. I plowed thru it like a runaway train shouting ‘get out of my way’. I didn’t just want to get to the end, I needed it like I needed my next breath. Don’t let the subject matter scare you away. Yes this is a story about cheating but it’s so much more. It’s a story about regret, it’s a story about forgiveness, it’s a story about holding on, it’s a story about love. We still needed to find some forgivenes ...more

I can tell you, even without reading this, that this author destroyed this book (for me) from the very beginning (in terms of the direction she has taken with this one)!!! I was actually pretty intrigued by this one and was quite interested in giving this book a try! I absolutely adore second chance M/M romances, and figured this book would feature two men who simply grew apart or maybe hit hard or rough times in their marriage, and now need to find their way back to one another!!

Oh my, I really enjoyed this story. It was transported back to the early days of reading MM romance when I first discovered LA Witt. And at first, the story seemed to be following the lines of one of my old favorites, The Distance Between Us, but it quickly diverged and became totally unique.

Rhys and Derek are over, after nine years together, seven as a married couple, they are going their separate ways—once Rhys can find an affordable apartment, and they sell their home, and tell th
