I had this book on my TBR list for a long time. I mean, 4.48 average rating. No truly negative (written) reviews whatsoever and it’s been out for years. When I see books like this on Goodreads, I just assume that, at worst, I’m not going to like the plot - but, surely, the writing should be OK.

Well, let me tell you, it's not. It’s so bad, that even though I DNF’d at 16%, I had to rate it 1 star, because for one, I think it’s absolutely crazy that no other review mentions how bad the writing and

Okay so I'd say this one was a solid 3 stars maybe even a 3.5

This one was a pretty good read. Overall the characters were great and easy to like and connect with. The writing was pretty good as well especially for what I believe was this authors first book. The flow was great and there were times where I was laughing out loud and all that but there was something missing. I'm not sure if it just needed a bit more punch or what. I don't know maybe a bit more flushing out of the home situation on

Reading Fated was an emotional roller coaster for me, but in a very good way. I think I experienced every emotion in existence while finishing this story. I'm not going to go into a synopsis of the book because that's available here on Goodreads except to say that the main characters, Alex and Frankie, will get into your head and make you wonder what happens to them after the book ends.

That's one of the things I loved about the book. Alex and Frankie are so multi-dimensional, it's easy to think

5 Star Review



Fated by A.S. Roberts is an intriguing book to read. It was an amazingly well written story that had a few surprising twists in the romance department. It kept me guessing of who was ending up together and which man should the main character Frankie end up with.

The story introduced you to the character Frankie; she has had tragedies in life that made her grow up quickly. Because of her Aunt and Uncle and her best friend/cousin, James, she still is very naïve. She

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

This was an outstanding debut novel by author A S Roberts. This author is definitely one to add to your TBR list, and I will definitely be looking out for all future work.

From the first word I was hooked, and couldn't put it down. Our main characters are Alex and Frankie; Alex is our typical hot alpha male, and Frankie is a naive beautiful young women, with a less than traditional past. To avoid spoilers I won’t go into the story

This is the debut novel by author A S Roberts, and what an amazing way to introduce yourself to the literary world.

This book will definitely pull at the heart strings right from the start. The main characters in the book are Alex and Frankie (Francesca). It is clear very early on that there is a connection between these two, the author builds up to their first meet, and the suspense was killing me, but when they meet, boy was it explosive!

FATED is A.S. Roberts debut novel but don’t let the word ‘debut’ fool you. She did a fantastic job in telling Alex and Frankie’s story. Ms. Roberts wonderfully weaved all of her characters in a seamless manner which I absolutely enjoyed. She gave her secondary characters enough depth to leave you wanting more without trampling the main characters. Alex her male protagonist is a charming, mysterious and a sexy boss who is hiding secrets from Frankie. But will these secrets keep them apart? Or wil ...more

This is a debut novel? Seriously?! Roberts is an exceptional writer! The plot is strong and the mystery keeps you hanging on till the very end. Everyone seems to have secrets and none of them are obvious. I LOVE not being able to figure a book out till the author slaps you in the face with it.

Frankie is having the chance of a lifetime at her dream job. Until her past literally sneaks up on her and makes things a little, okay - A LOT, complicated! She's blindsided and hurt, her past is crossing

When I read that A. S. Roberts was “a chocolate addict, children loving, mad woman”, I knew we shared a kindred spirit. I was so excited to jump in and see how she infuses her personality and fun spirit into her writing. Magnificent! Brilliant writing, and I was drawn in from the very first page. Her characters were extraordinary and so full of personality that they became a part of your world. FATED is the first book in A. S. Robert’s phenomenal FAT

Fated by A.S. Roberts is a story of love at first sight, possibilities, demons, secrets and redemption. It is the first book of a series by this new English author. I found her writing to be both sweet and sassy and yet pretty steamy and so romantic as well. . I did have to look up a few terms because it IS written in British English but found some that I will probably continue to use in my everyday life because they seem to be lovelier than the English versions.

I'm a chocolate addict, children loving, mad woman. A self-confessed book whore who reads more than she exercises.
Luckily I am married to the love of my life, together we have four boys and lots of dogs. I live in south east England... although I love to travel.
When I'm not reading... I can be found writing and drinking copious amounts of tea, latte or whiskey!
