Today I finished reading BROKEN DRIFT by –new to me – author Adrian Hale. It seems to be the second book in a series with standalone characters and storylines. Broken Drift is a well developed second chance romance. With Wyatt and Isla – Ms. Hale gave us two strong independent characters that have unfinished business with each other. Not everything is as it seems and the reader should be prepared for twists, turns and antagonists – everything that a good plot should have in store.
My feelings towards the characters – the author obviously spend a lot of time in the development of the characters – but I am not sure if for my very VERY personal taste Isla had too much focus on certain things. As I often say I need to connect to the characters in a certain way to feel them and Isla felt distant to me in the – very important – because story shaping – first chapters. It made me wonder what Wyatt saw in her.
On the other hand, it felt easier to forgive Wyatt a lot once you got a closer look at his life. While at first glance he seemed superficial, the second glance proved that the first was only a façade to handle his hurt.
The reader will be entertained by some great secondary characters and a spiteful antagonist – gosh I really hated that guy.
In total the reader gets a solid second chance novel with a an interesting cast and a great plot
