Just a really sweet second chance/surprise baby book.

You will experience all of the feels.

Amanda Stribling does a great job narrating.

I would highly recommend this if you are in the mood for a short listen that really packs a punch.

Great story!

Liv is a great book. It really makes you think: what if I were in the situation of Liv? Very few books leave me thinking about them once I've finished, but this one definitely is stuck in my mind. I honestly felt invested in the characters and didn't want it to end.

Audio quality was good. I received this audiobook in exchange for an honest review.

Liv and Luke

A great romance read / listen. I really enjoyed the story line and flow. Loved the dual point of view and how well the author put that together - it didn't come across as repetitive like it so easily could have. Great characters and chemistry. A love triangle between Liv and best friends Adam and Luke. Some heart breaks as well as heart warming moments with a perfect HEA ending.

Great characters, charming and emotional romance!

When I first read the blurb of Kelsie Rae’s debut novel, Liv, I knew I wanted to read it. I love books that are emotional and angst-filled, and Liv had it in spades. I recently had an opportunity to listen to Liv and I loved it! The narrator, Amanda Stribling, did an amazing job bringing Liv and Luke to life for me. I loved it and could not stop listening to it!

Liv married her high school sweetheart. Her life could not be any more perfect. Then tragedy hits and she loses her husband. The last thing she expected was to find out she was pregnant on the day she says goodbye to her husband. Now her entire life is turned upside down.

Luke, Liv and Adam were best friends in high school. But Luke had a secret. When he and Adam have a falling out, he walks out of their lives. He was never supposed to see them again. But when Adam dies, he goes back to say goodbye to his best friend. When he sees Liv needs help, he cannot help but step in.

I loved Liv and Luke. Liv was heartbroken after her loss and was trying to find a way to move forward and provide for her child. Even as she deals with her grief. Luke was so protective of Liv. He was sweet and caring. He put his life on hold for Liv. Both characters were so relatable and likable.

The more time Luke and Liv spend together; you can see their chemistry. Both characters had so much to give each other. There was drama, angst, emotions and so many other things in their way, but going through their journey, you could see how much they belonged together.

I absolutely loved Liv by Kelsie Rae. She gave us amazing characters and a story that will consume you. This was a beautiful story of love, hope and second chances from a debut author.

Happy listening!

Awesome: Double Check

I received this audiobook free for an honest review. This was an awesome story. Liv is adorable, and pregnant and Luke is the hottest, and her dead husband's best friend. What a combination. Leaves you wondering where this story is going. The author did an excellent job with this story. The narrator did a great job with the characters and the different personalities to include Luke's family and Adam's mother. She brought the story to life.

Fate

It took some time to get into the narrator and she reading but once the story got moving I was able to enjoy it. Kelsie Ray wrote a story that everyone can enjoy that shows sometimes fate will bring what should have been together.

Loved it!! ♥️

Liv is a second chance-ish romance that will give you all the feels. I absolutely loved Liv and Luke together! I know it’s sad because her husband dies, but you don’t get to know him as character, you only get memories.

Liv, Luke and Adam were all best friends in high school. Adam got the girl. Luke left for college. He doesn’t come back until the funeral. He can’t leave Liv all alone, so he offers her a room in his condo. Their friendship picks up where it left off. Only, Liv doesn’t know that Luke has loved her years.

Liv is devastated at the sudden loss of her husband, Adam. When Luke shows up at the funeral and offers her a place to live, she takes it. She doesn’t know how she’s going to pick up the pieces of her life, especially now that she’s pregnant. It’s only temporary, what could possibly go wrong?

Amanda Stribling did an amazing job narrating! I could see her as Liv. You can hear and feel the emotion in her voice.

Life can be full of the unexpected

This was a crazy heart-warming story. It hit all the spots for me. We see from the blurb that Liv’s husband died. I felt a huge tug on my heart… losing a husband and then getting that positive pregnancy test. It’s like he’s literally left a piece of himself with you… he did. I adored Luke an incredible amount. I found him completely charming. This audiobook shows us how completely life can take us by surprise.

The narrator, Amanda Stribling, did a fabulous job. I found her narration to be thorough and engaging. I enjoyed her and really felt as though she carried the emotions of the story perfectly. It was touching in all ways.

Amazing story!

I am completely in love with Liv and Luke. I am a sucker for friends to lover stories and Kelsie Rae did an amazing job of making me fall in love with them as friends and then as lovers. Luke was a good best friend to Adam and Liv which made me *swoon*. He had their backs to the end and it warmed my heart.

Sweet and Enjoyable!

Such a sweet, emotional, modern romance!

Luke, Adam and Liv were friends in high school. Liv and Adam were dating and Luke was in love with Liv. So, upon graduation, Luke goes his own way and Liv and Adam get married. Fast forward a few years, Liv is widowed and pregnant. She comes face to face with her best friend, Luke, at Adam's funeral. Despite moving on with his life, Luke cannot help extend a helping hand to his high school love. Together they face the realities of pregnancy, past secrets and mistakes.

The plot is really simple and the narrative performance is very easy to listen to. Perhaps what I liked best is the very human and realistic aspects of this story. Each character has to make difficult decisions and suffer the repercussions of their choices. Certainly something I can relate to!

Solid Read!

Audiobook review. 3.5 Stars. The story was solid all around with a consistent flow, strong prose, and dynamic enough characters. The plot was ok. Nothing that was different or unexpected, which isn’t necessarily a bad thing. Especially when you’re in the mood for something that won’t throw a wrench into a plot for the sake of it.

Luke was a hero that wore his heart on his sleeve. He always thought of others before himself and was kind and protective. I would’ve liked to have seen a little more imperfection from him but he is definitely a dream man for our heroine. I’m trying to decide if Liv was blind or naive to Luke and his feelings. Either way, she got a tough deal and is trying to figure herself out. She was a bit dependent for my tastes but ok overall.

The narrator, Amanda Stribling, did a good job. Her transitions were smooth, her pace was steady, and her tone clear. She gave the characters life with her intensity and inflections.

Love loss and love again

As a person who list her husband less than a month ago this was a hard read. I am so thankful for the HEA. Liv lost her husband and found out she was pregnant. Than felt betrayed when she found out he cheated on her as a teen. Her best friend luke has been taken care of her throughout her pregnancy.

Sweet!

This sweet second chance love story is told in a dual point of view which I loved. If you're looking for hot sex, this is not the book for you, but if you like a friends to lovers story where the guy finally gets the girl, then you'll love this one.

I really enjoyed Amanda Stribling narrating and bringing this story to life. She did a great job giving each character their own distinct voice. I loved her male voice for Luke.

This was a great listen!!

Liv’s story is a great love story. You may not think so at the beginning, as she has just lost her husband who she loved deeply, and she found out she was pregnant on the day of his funeral.

This is a story of love lost, found and lived by people who truly care for each other and know what it is to care for another person. There are many side stories here and they all make the story more compelling and a great listen.

This is my first Kelsie Rae book but not my last. I like her writing style.

Amanda Stribling does a wonderful job with the narration as well!!

Luke & Liv!

Books that give so many feels are so satisfying and Kelsie Rae's Liv does just that. Told mostly from Liv's point of view, we get to take her journey from grief to a second chance at love. Liv's husband Adam dies unexpectedly. She is only 23, pregnant and scared. When Luke, Adam's best friend comes to her aid, things begin to look up. But will Luke's high school crush on Liv still come into play? Kelsie Rae's debut novel is low angst, heart breaking and heart warming. I enjoyed Liv's life changing experiences, learning to deal with pregnancy, deciding what is best for her and her baby and her interactions with Luke. I loved Luke's protectiveness and constant second guessing of what is right for him. It made the story more realistic for me. It's a slow burn, passionate and loving. I really enjoyed the story.

Amanda Stribling brings her talent to this story. She has an emotional voice, perfect for Liv. She gives her the warmth and depth to make her story ring true. She easily transitions to Luke with his voice strong and full of feeling. He is a compassionate man and you can feel it through her narration. Another great listen!

Heartbreaking beginning, happy ending

Liv is a tear jerker.

My heart breaks for Liv. She looses her husband but there is a silver lining. She’s pregnant.

Luke is her best friend from high school. And has been in love her from the beginning. When Liv loses her husband Luke steps in and takes care of her. He so sweet and soft with her.

I really enjoyed listening to these two fall in love. They’re the cutest couple.

This is my first listen of Amanda Stribling and I really enjoyed her narration. She did a great job!

LOVED IT!

ahh I absolutely loved this story! I felt really bad for Liv having lost her husband and then she finds out shes pregnant, thank god she has her best friend there to help her out , she just didn't realise quite how much help she would get
this story had everything , was funny in places and sad too but i was hooked , needing to find out what was going to happen next, I hope the other books in the series come out soon on audio but if not then they're definitely a series I'm going to binge read on my kindle
the narrator couldn't have been more perfect and she did both female and male parts brilliantly .

a must listen.
