April Showers (April, #1) - Karli Perrin So WHAT is with all these amazing authors coming outta the UK lately? Or am I just really slow to take notice of them? If that's the case I am SO sorry!!!Anyways! This book was so awesome! Not only is the cover super amazing (I admit I'm a bit of a cover whore) but just by reading the description of the book you cant help but be interested in it! and let me tell you it does NOT disappoint!I really liked April, she is a very quirky character just looking for a fresh start. On her first day of school she literally falls at the feet of the most gorgeous man she has ever seen... I was right away VERY interested in this mysterious guy and I was a little disappointed that I had to wait so long (OK maybe only like 2 or 3 chapters if even) to find out more about him.But I was pacified when we met Lukas, he wasn't my absolute favorite, he just seemed WAY to perfect for our quirky and slightly dorky April... but he was hot and he was a sweetie... even if I did spend like the WHOLE book waiting for the other shoe to drop on him and prove that he isnt as perfect as he seems.When we finally get to know more about or mysterious man... who btw is Isaac... I was immediately in love, even if he was a bit of a dick about the whole situation, you just cant help but love him! I think what I loved most about Isaac is that he doesn't even try to come across as perfect, even though he totally is in my eyes, he isn't exactly broken like some characters in other books... but he isn't really whole either.We also meet Aprils best friend who I absolutely LOVED! I really want to know her story, because it is SO obvious she has one... hint hint... maybe a prequel Karli? anyways, Katie is basically a blonde bombshell who is flirty and outspoken and TOTALLY loyal to April. We really only get a brief introduction to her but she is quite obviously an integral part in April's life so I was a little let down that we only learned bits an pieces about her.However... back to the good stuff eh? April and Isaac, honestly such a hot couple! They definitely had chemistry, and although they fought it basically the whole book, it was totally inevitable that they get together. I also wont lie, I was a little bit happy that Lukas turned out to be an asshat as well and finally showed his true not perfect colors!But the main thing was that ending! I mean seriously? I went through so many emotions! At first I thought it was a joke and there was more... then when I realized it was actually the ending I started tweeted to Karli like crazy and I may have said that I hate her a few dozen times (OK so I am totally exaggerating but I was in shock but still!) and then I wanted to throw my phone across the room because I couldn't BELIEVE that it would end that way! Oh and then I basically sat there in shock trying to absorb what just happened... and I STILL haven't fully absorbed it!If you get into the same situation as I was in when you finish this book, trust me tossing your reading device into the wall really wont make the book longer... and DON'T WORRY! There is another book coming out! Hopefully by the end of the year... but I totally wouldn't object to it coming out like RIGHT NOW!
