As some of you know, I’ve been missing on here for the past couple of months because reading was the last thing I could have managed to do for some reason.
It’s all good though, I did manage to watch more tv shows and movies than I did in the past 2 years accumulated.

And the great news is that I’ve slowly gotten back to it. And it all started with this book. I just knew that a Kylie Scott book would be the best thing for me. And as luck would have it, she did have 2 releases (this o

This audiobook was so great! I remember listening to and loving Kylie Scott's Repeat and I was excited to get more from that world. Leif is Ed's brother and the hero of our story. Anna is our heroine who gets into a car accident and is on a coma for months. When she wakes up her life has completely changed. She found out her husband wasn't faithful to her, and things are bad all around. Then she meets Leif, another innocent bystander from the accident and they become fast friends.

I can't remember the last time I read a book where both characters actually have their shit together. Not only was it refreshing and delightful, it was impressive considering how much Anna and Leif went through before reconnecting.

I don’t feel like a hell of a lot of anything. A blank piece of paper waiting for a new story to be written. The beginning of something with no future in sight. That’s what it feels like to be me.

Astrid - The Bookish Sweet Tooth

AUTHOR: Kylie Scott
SERIES: Standalone (connected to REPEAT)
RELEASE DATE: April 13, 2021
GENRE: Contemporary Romance
TROPES: Friends-to-Lovers, Cheating Husband
LENGTH: 6 hrs and 17 mins
RATING: 4 Stars

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
This had several elements that made it stand out but ultimately it felt a little undeveloped.

The heroine wakes up after a seven month coma to find out that her husband and her best friend had an affair. Unlike too many heroines, she’s fed up and done hearing how hard her coma was on him. She’s gone from a little too perfect to a crankier version of her previous self that’s trying to adjust to a new reality. Her reactions to her husband and her ex-best friend are just what a lot of readers want t

It has been a while since I read Miss Scott books. Pause is good novella. The story is similar to Repeat.

I do like the easy banter between Anna and Leif ( I love the name too). Their Twilight obsession is also cute. Pause is sow burn romance but with a short length. Not so much drama.

First things first..... Can we all just take a minute and talk about how fucking amazing Andi Arndt is as a narrator.

That chick can narrate a fucking history book and I will devour it (note, I hated history with a passion and slept though most of that class). Seriously, her male voice is hotter than most actual guys voices.

Next, let me tell you what would happen if I woke up from a 7 month coma only to find out that my husband fucked my best friend.

Any kind of book that got me grinning like a dork is worth a 5 stars in my opinion.

I mean, come on. It's Kylie Scott. She can write some of the best banters.

I liked this one much more than book 1. Poor Anna was in a car accident 9 months ago and wakes up to her whole world being changed. Her husband and best friend began an affair while she was in a coma and her life imploded.

Leif was riding his motorcycle and got clipped by a car and was there to hold Anna's hand while she was cut from her car. They have a connection and Anna wants to talk to thank him for his help and both see they have an obvious connection.

Charming and lovely... the story of Anna and Leif really warmed my heart and made for an incredibly entertaining read.

I read it as a mix of audio and e-ARC and I was captivated by the unlikely love story between 2 survivors of the same bad accident. The narrator is fantastic.

The story is told from Anna's POV. She wakes up from a 7 months comma to find her perfect life was not so perfect after all. Her husband cheated on her with one of her best friends. But she learns of Leif, the other accident

This was a really good listen, 🎧and not just because Kylie Scott wrote it and Andi Arndt was the narrator, which in my experience, is always a good combination, no that wasn't the only reason.

After reading repeat book 1, Leif as a character wasn't really winning any points for me in the first book. Which is probably why it took me so long to listen to Pause. That being said I found his character had grown so much after what had occurred in book 1 and again after his motorcycle accident, he was i

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.

Anna + Leif

We all remember Leif from his brother's book REPEAT.
Now he gets his own story.
He was in an accident seven months ago. But the real victim in the accident was Anna. She's been in a coma ever since.
And now that she's woken up, she finds out that her husband cheated on her with her best friend.

Leif and Anna become friends. Good friends. And even roommates. But can there be more? Both have been hurt pretty badly in their last relationships.
Friends with benefits? Nah, that never works ..

3.5 stars ⭐⭐⭐
An enjoyable read....but it pales in comparison for me to the previous book "Repeat" which I absolutely loved and have now read many times.
It was a good read but not great!!! or maybe I am just so enamored with Clem and Ed's story that I found this one to be a little lacking somehow.

I went blindly into this read via audio listen and was pleasantly surprised by this book! Pause is an audible exclusive book that is told from only the main heroine perspective.

Format 🎧: audiobook listen. This audiobook was 10 chapters and included a prologue & epilogue. It was 6 hrs & 17 minutes and can be listened to in 1-2 sittings. This book was narrated by the amazing Andi Arndt and as always I enjoyed the narration.

Leif and Anna were both involved in the same horrible accident, however, their injuries are totally different.

After Anna gets out of the hospital and finds out some traumatic information, she seeks out Leif and they become friends. And slowly more.

Leif was very intuitive about their relationship while Anna was figuring things out. I really enjoyed that and the humor involved.

The epilogue was surprising but then again - not. Go Anna!

She wakes up seven months later to find out that while the pause button was pushed on her life, some people she cared about have already used the fast forward button. She has to come to grips with the fact since she has been in a coma life has carried on without her.

The cover of the book confused me at first glance. When I read the book, I was not expecting it to start out as a tragedy. To hear about the accident and then suddenly this mystery man within Chapter 1 really got me hooked. Although this sounds like it can be a true story. I'm almost certain it could be. I have no idea because I didn't read the bio in the car. I just added it to my library on Audible. I give this book 5 stars and it's only a 6 hour read so it's pretty short.

* 2nd book of Larsen Bros series. Each book is a stand-alone.



The book is about two people who were connected through an accident they had. Leif injured his arm but Anna was in a coma for 7 months, during which her husband cheated on her with her best friend and impregnated her.

After she wakes up, she sees how much her world is changed and tries to adapt to it in the best way she can.

The goodreads version of the book says it’s an audible, but I read this through iBooks, so idk. 🤷🏻‍♀️

I think I’ve officially read everything Scott has written at this point that doesn’t involve a zombie apocalypse (that is just not my thing). She writes quick, steamy, smutty books, and I’m always up to read a new one of hers.

I feel like I’m the champion of Repeat by Kylie Scott, I loved that audio and I’ve since re-listened and re-read. So Pause had big shoes to fill and alongside that Leif wasn’t the easiest character like in Repeat having fouled up in his relationship choices bringing consequences.

Pause started with an accident and hospitals which felt reminiscent of Repeat but I didn’t mind that to be honest, as Anna’s story was different enough to feel new. The circumst

Awe, this book will have you believing in love again!!

Anna has been in a horrible car accident which left her in a coma. During that time her husband turns to her best friend for comfort. So, when Anna comes out of her coma her life looks nothing like how it used to.

She meets the man (Leif) who helped save her from the car wreck. He's the type of guy that reads Twilight to you while you're in the hospital in a coma. Beyond his sweet side, he is also a tattoo artist who isn't looking forward to
