Waiting for April by Jaime Loren

4 "Get Ready for a Ride" Stars

Back Cover Blurb -
April Fletcher has died nineteen times... but she doesn't know it.

As far as April is concerned, she's just a normal seventeen-year-old, looking forward to spending spring break with her friends and going to college in the fall. April doesn't know she has never lived past her eighteenth birthday, nor does she realize that Scott Parker, her best friend, is actually her childhood sweetheart and fiancé from her very first life.

For nineteen-year-old Scott Parker, spending quality time with his soul mate has proved difficult ever since her tragic death in 1729. Since then he has lost her an additional eighteen times—each of her deaths more devastating than the last, and each of her births wiping the slate of her memory clean. Unable to save her but unwilling to give up, Scott has to hide the fact he's immortal—and will be until April confesses her love again.

But this time, things have changed. April has denied her feelings for him, is dating someone else, and with her eighteenth birthday fast approaching, their friendship is falling to pieces. Fearing their souls are irrevocably drifting apart, Scott must race against the clock to win her heart and save her life.

Or risk losing her forever.
Please be seated and make sure that all valuables are stored and tucked safely away. Now buckle up and enjoy the ride!

This book was a roller coaster that took me through a myriad of emotions. I laughed, I cried, I *sqeeued* with joy and lashed out in frustration. I blushed, I cringed, I gaped and gasped and most importantly, I loved every moment of it.
Waiting for April is a book that reaches past the boundaries and brings in a touch of the supernatural while still keeping the reader firmly planted in reality. It is a smooth blend of romance and mystery, topped with a little fantasy and a drop of thrills to make one excellent read.

April is our heroine in this story of true love and reincarnation and though still young at the tender age of 17, she already has her life planned out. Out for school break, before graduating and heading off to Harvard, she has planned a trip with her two best friends, Stella and Scott and her boyfriend Rowan, to a cabin in a remote area that Scott has found and rented for them. Little does April know, that nothing is what it seems and her whole life is about to change forever.
Lies and deceit are only the beginning of April's problems as it becomes apparent that trying to stay alive is her number one priority. With twists and turns and more questions than answers, no one can be trusted and with time running out and shocking secrets revealed, can a love that has burned for centuries save her or will a hatred that has turned to evil consume them all?

I devoured this book and turned page after page, through the wee hours of the morning, stopping long enough to drink coffee, until reading the very last page in the shine of the afternoon sun. If I had to say anything negative about this book, it would be the ages of the main characters. They read more in my mind as older and with some of the subject matter, it seemed only appropriate they should be older, but that was a mild nag and nothing to keep me from reading it.

I would definitely recommend to any reader that enjoys romance with a little thrill along the way!

Happy reading, until next time...
I would like to thank NetGalley for the ARC of this title in exchange for an honest review.
