Fated (Fated #1) by A.S. Roberts – Review by Jana Teppih

Fated (Fated #1)Fated by A.S. Roberts
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Fated by A.S. Roberts is her debut novel and the first one in the series called … Fated! It is a contemporary love story filled with unexpected discoveries that blow you out of water and you feel lost like Frankie.
I got hooked on the story from the first page as it rose my curiosity, the writer is great at spinning a story filled with secrets and flawed protagonists that steal your heart. I spent my whole last Sunday with Frankie and Alex and Nathan and Bella (who are getting their own story next). I cried and I cursed, I chuckled and laughed out loud, I mourned and I hoped. The characters seemed so real – they struggle with their past, the control, the secrets … there is something for everyone in this book!
I lived in the UK for some years and I absolutely loved the British English that was peppered throughout the book, in no way felt it clunky, the story flowed beautifully – I felt like being back over there and having a cup of tea and a scone with clotted cream and jam!
I think something that will remain with me is what was on the note Alex included along with the flowers he sent to Frankie – “A person’s strength isn’t shown by how much they can take before they break. A person’s strength is shown by how much they can take after they have already broken.” What an amazing thought that the writer gifted us with and that we can draw strength from when in despair.
I know what I am going to read next! I have the second book lined up on my Kindle – Bella and Nathan’s story! Cannot wait!
