(Kill Devil Hills #4)
by Sarah Darlington
What happens when the world thought you were dead and now suddenly you aren’t?
Ben Turner is back! Not quite as dead as everyone thought, fresh out of a nine-month stay in prison, and back home in Kill Devil Hills, North Carolina. Having been dishonorably discharged after charges of desertion from the military, this once well-loved local has fallen from the top. With no plans for college or the future, and hated by the town that once loved him, Ben feels like he’s drowning all over again.
Juniper is pregnant, alone, and running from her crazy fiancé. With only enough money for a one-way bus ticket, she heads to Kill Devil Hills, NC, a town she vacationed in as a little girl, a town she knows, come February, will have plenty of beach rentals to lie low in for the next couple months. Except she didn’t plan on getting caught on day one by the man living next door. Ben. He’s a man who has even more problems than she does, but maybe it’ll take a man like Ben to save her life.
**NEW ADULT ROMANCE**
Recommended for 18+. ADRIFT can be read as a standalone but is recommended to be read fourth in Sarah Darlington’s KILL DEVIL HILLS Series.
Adrift was oddly enough my first Sarah Darlington read and the fourth and final book of a series, and while Adrift had solid legs and stood well on its own, I feel a strong desire to read the previous books for my own enjoyment. All of the primary and secondary characters were interesting and compelling, each with their own unique quirks. I was enamored with and curious about the complicated and complex character of Ben. The plot was active with a large cast of characters and provided a bit of everything – a faked death, strangers hiding their pasts, a bit of danger, suspense, intrigue, a new romance, a fresh start, and steamy sensual scenes. Despite a storyline heavy with two of my least favorite tropes of angst and pregnancy, the author’s writing style and craftily paced tale held my attention and kept me engaged and intrigued from beginning to end.
