Posted by brriske
April Landau thinks she has everything she’s ever wanted. Her high school sweetheart, a house she can’t afford, her bipolar tabby cat, and she’s all set to begin her Junior year of college. Just when she least expects it, her life gets thrown for a loop. When things between her and her long time boyfriend unravel, she becomes stuck in a downward spiral of emotion. Finally, opening her eyes to the fact that she may have given up more than she ever could have imagined in this relationship. She finds herself struggling to keep her head above water.
Enter April’s next door neighbor— Jared Hoffman. He’s her complete opposite. A high school drop out who was forced to take over his parent’s business after their untimely death. It’s no surprise this tragedy affected him greatly, causing him to recede almost completely from society.
But he has one secret. A secret he’s been carrying around for years.
What happens when their worlds collide? Can an old friendship be the one thing that brings these two back to life?
A new adult love story filled with drama, sex, death, and the complications of all of the above.
Discovering April is about April and how she figured out who she really was. April has been in a long term relationship with Hunter, but it was not a good relationship and they drift apart. Even though they have drifted apart, April does not know what to do without Hunter, because she has been part of April and Hunter for so long. How does she be just April? Then April sees Hunter with a girl she thought he had been fooling around with while they were dating and she completely falls apart. Letting school and work go, not eating April is hitting rock bottom and is outside crying when neighbor Jared comes to see if he can help. They have known each other forever, but could they be more than just neighbors? I will let you read and see.
This book is good. The character development is excellent and the story flows along at a slow steady pace. If you like stories about life after self-discovery and romance, then this is the book for you.
I’m giving this book 4 hearts
