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 wo

This book revolves around the lives of 3 beautiful people who survived a plane crash together and have been inseparable since. The title is actually somewhat of a spoiler to be honest. I have never felt so moved by a book until this one. I am not kidding when i say that this book made me happy, inspired, hopeful, sad, devastated, angry, and everythin

Wow this book is the definition of reading past your bed time! Wow wow wow.

This book has the perfect amount of tension, suspense, drama and slow burn romance.

Chris, Kate and Faye are the survivors of a plane crash. When all hope seems lost, Chris and Faye share a life changing kiss. Months later, that kiss still means everything to Faye however she was not expecting Chris' current situation.

I loved everything about this book!! Every chapter was a page turner, there was so much drama and

Such a sweet and charming read!

If you are looking for something easy to digest, that will have you laughing, crying, happy and sad this is the book for you. It’s such a great book; not only because of the romance, but because it’s about growth and learning that life’s short and you should be with and do things that you truly love. This book was such a sweet and enjoyable read. It was a super, super, super slow burn with amazing main and side characters. They have depth and are so easy to relate

Faye is at the beginning of her journey as a photographer. But what she isn't expecting is to meet Kate and Chris on the plane.

Nor is she expecting the plane to come down and in the wreckage the three of them depend on each other for survival.

Faye doesn't want to die in the middle of the ocean amongst the wreckage without experiencing her first kiss.

So she does .. But they survive and Faye loses her ability to want to continue her career path after the crash . But what she doesn't lose is conn

This book was an amazing read. The story is about two souls, how their destiny leads them to meet each other. Their life almost ends but this happens to be the beginning of new life.

The character of Faye is so fantastically written, i can relate so much of me with her. I think relating yourself to the characters makes everything feel very real.
The character of chris is so loving and caring, i already loved him, another of my book love. The supporting charcters were truly praiseworthy. My favor

4.5/5 stars (rounded up to 5)

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 avoi

This book is absolutely amazing!! Audrey has done it again with a completely well rounded and written book. Ever since I read her first book, Secret Agents: My Bodyguard, I've been impatiently waiting for her next novel.
Audrey's writing is absolutely incredible. The way she describes the situations that occur and the people we are introduced to- mind blowing.
As I said, I've been waiting for this book to come out as soon as she announced it was being published, so as soon as I received my copy,

Do you believe in fate? Because this romance sure is caused by fate! This romance starts by a traumatic plane crash causing 3 random people surviving together on a raft. After finding out Chris is already preoccupied, our lovely Faye's heart is broken😭🥺
I absolutely loved this storyline, not only does it flow and come together perfectly, the prologue trapped me immediately💙 the side characters are amazing! I love bree's bluntness, Kate's loyalty, and Jason's sassiness. However, the ending caught

This story revolves around three main characters, Kate, Faye and Chris. It's a story of love, dreams, passion and fate. How people are meant to cross our path, to change us, influence us, take a place in our life and make us brave and independent.
In a moment of hopelessness and despair, they shared a kiss which broke them morebadly. But who knew what lay ahead, that soon their sinking hearts found an anchor to hold onto.
Sooner than expected because when it's meant to be, it'll be .

This book had me on my toes since the first chapter!!

I loved it so much!!

My first ever Audrey Beaudoin book and I have to say that I enjoyed it so much!!

This book was different from the others that I've read before. More sweet and the main guy is such a sweet heroine that I love!!

The chemistry between them and the longing was so strong! You can feel the love that they have for each other.

The plot was well written and the arcs of both characters was something I really enjoyed reading!

I saved this review in my notes, but it never made it anywhere else for some reason or another. 🤷🏻‍♀️

This book. Man, before the end of the prologue I was already starting to feel the waterworks coming on. By the end of it, a tear or two had been shed.

The progression of the friendships in this book hit me the hardest. Journeying through tragedy together made them more open to one another.

Add in some slllloooowwww burn romance between Faye & Chris and I was rocked.
I loved this.

This story is about a young woman named Faye who survives a plane crash. I'll admit I've never read a second chance romance before, so this was new territory for me. The past/present style of storytelling, while having the potential to be jarring, is actually quite effective here, and made Faye's internal struggles and healing all the more impactful in the long run. When the plane first fell out of the sky, I was completely engrossed. The descriptions drew me in so deeply that my surroundings me ...more

Beautiful story

The Aftermath of Drifting Away was a book that pulled me in immediately….the agony & despair of the tragedy that Faye, Kate & Chris faced was so horrific and hopeless that I was just completely shaken reading it. And when they were ultimately saved, you would think the worst would be behind them but Faye continues to struggle with surviving such a tragic event and having to re-start her life. She also has to deal with her feelings for Chris, who isn’t available to her the way she

You follow Faye, a loner on her way to start a photography career, and siblings Chris and Kate. They start off after the crash and moments before rescue. The storytelling is a past/present style, which can get overwhelming, but in this book it adds to the effectiveness of the story. Most of the book centers on Faye's reluctance to admit or act on her attraction to Chris, whom she shared her first kiss with when they thought they were going to die, since he is actually engaged to an

You are strong enough to face it all, even if it doesn't feel like it right now.
Let's start by saying that I shed some tears! This book was such a simple but breathtaking read. I could really find myself wondering about Faye and the whirlpool of her emotions.
It's had to recover from something you wouldn't ever expect would happen to you that completely changes your prospects on everything you do after it.
The story is about Faye who survives a plane crash with two other people Kate and Chris. Not

Faye was so sure she was about to die when she asked Chris, a stranger, for her first kiss. There was no other reason she would ask. But after days of being adrift at sea, they were rescued - and now Faye has to live with the consequences. Including the fact that Chris isn't single!

I loved the premise for this one - there are many fictional romances that begin far away from reality and I always wonder what happens when the couples go back to their real lives. I really felt for Faye, who I honest
