My thoughts…

Ah I’ve been waiting for this book for a while. I loved April Showers! It ended on a pretty big cliffhanger so I was happy that this story immediately picked up where it left off. If you’ve read April Showers you will be happy to know what happens to Lukas. I know that was the first thing I needed to know.

While I enjoyed this one I don’t think it was quite the book April Showers was. It sort of moved along smoothly until about 3/4 of a way through. Then there is a surprise revealed that I didn’t see coming. That surprise is what made the entire book for me. I really didn’t see it coming.

As with the first one there is quite a bit of playful banter within this one. I was LOL’ing quite a bit. The playful banter between the characters was quite amusing.

The sexual content is comparable to adult mainstream. It’s not explicit in nature.

Overall, I really enjoyed this one. It was a fast read for me. I was able to read it all in one sitting. I kept turning page after page to see what would happen and how things would end for April. I can honestly say I’m happy with the way things turned out.

I’m keeping my fingers crossed that Ms Perrin will write more books in this series. I loved Brody, Lucy, and Lucas. I think it would be great to see them get their own books.

My thoughts…

April Showers is a debut novel by author Karli Perrin. I wasn’t sure what to expect going into this one. The synopsis sounded really good so I couldn’t wait to dive into it. It’s such a cute contemporary romance. I really enjoyed reading it. If I hadn’t started it so late in the evening I would’ve been able to get through it in one sitting. So good.

The main characters are rich with emotions and I enjoyed getting to know all about them. The chemistry between Isaac & April is strong from the very beginning. I wanted things to work out for them so badly. And while I liked Lukas I felt he wasn’t the one for April. There just didn’t seem to be any spark between them. Not like the sparks she felt with Isaac.

Throughout the story April struggles with her feelings. She likes both Isaac and Lukas for different reasons and has a hard time figuring out which one is the better match for her. I know which one I hope she’d pick, but in order to find out you’ll have to read the book. Nope. No spoilers for you. Trust me it’s so worth it. 🙂

The sexual scenes were pretty much mainstream. They weren’t explicit in nature and had a certain sweetness about them.

April Showers ends with a cliffhanger and I’m going to be going crazy for the next book. I need to know what happens and how things will turn out.

Overall, I really enjoyed this story. Ms Perrin has a great writing style and I’m really looking forward to reading the next book as well as her future works. So if your a fan of New Adult Contemporary romance I highly suggest you give April Showers a try. Seriously! You need to read this one. 🙂
