The Aftermath of Drifting Away
by Audrey Beaudoin
(Fate, #1)
Publication date: July 15th 2020
Genres: Contemporary, New Adult, Romance

We survived the plane crash. 

We survived days on a raft in the middle of the ocean. Right when all hope to get rescued crumbled, we shared a kiss that left me heartbroken―my first and last kiss.

Or so I thought. Because we didn’t die. 

My plan is to never see Chris Ross again. To keep hanging out with his sister without crossing his path. Getting my life back together and working on my goals are the only things that matter. I have plans, and they don’t include love. 

But then he shows up at my workplace, asking for my friendship. When I learn something that changes everything, I’m determined to stay away and not let myself fall for him.

Too bad he’s persistent. Too bad I can’t stop thinking about the damn kiss. Too bad it’s nice having him around and being his friend.

If things were to change, they could get really complicated…

The Aftermath of Drifting Away is a sweet contemporary forbidden romance. It is the first book in the Fate series that can be read as a stand-alone.

My Review:

4.5/5 stars

I received an ARC of this book in exchange for an honest review.

Faye has lived through something horrible: a plane crash. It killed most of the passengers, but Faye survived with the help of two strangers. The siblings and Faye were adrift, waiting for help that they weren’t sure would ever arrive. But they survived. However, in that desperation, Faye got what she thought would be her first and last kiss from Chris. Now that she’s alive and well, she intends to avoid Chris while being best friends with his sister. But staying away isn’t as easy as she thought it would be.

This was honestly such a sweet and enjoyable book! I thought the concept seemed really interesting, but I didn’t expect that I’d love the characters this much! Something this author excelled at was the relationships in this book. This book has all kinds of relationships: the good, the bad, the ugly. They’re all done in such a realistic way. Chris is such a sweetheart and so is his sister, Kate. Some characters I loved, and some characters I hated.

Another thing I loved about this book was the way Faye dealt with the aftermath of the plane crash. Her trauma from that incident isn’t just glossed over. Faye lives her life with the mindset that the plane crash took everything from her. But when she stops to think about it, the plane crash gave her a lot too. Her character development and her perspective on life was something that made this book really special. Romance readers looking for a sweet contemporary love story or a forbidden romance should pick up a copy of this!
