My Review

GOD! THIS IS A BLOODY AWESOME SEQUEL! I get my Isaac back and HELLO HOTTIE BRODY! Yes, i have another guy to swoon and obsess over now….Jesus. An Isaac and Brody sandwich wouldn’t go amiss 😉 But anyway, before i go on a rambling tangent, i need to tell you how much i loved April Fools. You know my love for April Showers so when April Fools landed in my inbox, sod the others books (sorry) but I devoured the hell out of AF and it took like just over 2 hours, if that to finish it and swoon the hell out of this book. The sarcasm, the sexual innuendos, the tears, laughter and drama were all a part of April Fools – well we all know what went down in April Showers and no way was Karli going to bypass that shitstorm!!

We find out straight away about Lukas ‘condition…did he live or survive? It’s all there on the first page just for you to know. April is still in shock over the events that followed her house being set alight and her friend running into the building to find her. She’s really had a rough few days and Isaac has been with her every step of the way, making sure she is okay and helping her through it all. My boy really is a sweetheart! But when Isaac gets a call off his mother about Abbie being in trouble, Isaac is drawn into that drama and doesn’t tell April what is going on…not wanting her involved. This starts the trails and tribulations that follow their relationship to the very end.

April has been through a lot in the two books – from finding Isaac, finding out who he was, loving Isaac from afar but getting with Lukas to finding out Lukas’ secret, getting with Isaac, having her house set alight and now Isaac is keeping secrets from her, meeting up with Abbie, not answering her texts, being a little weird with her. Yes, that is enough to make anyone’s head turn a 360 and make you question everything. Thank god she had Lucy around and what makes everything better is that her brother, the delicious tattooed, motorbiking, cocky and flirty, Brody came to visit her for a while. OH HELL TO THE YES! We watch April grow up a lot in this book; she still has conflicting feelings about what Isaac is doing, about her brother and his weird relationship with Lucy, about Lukas and her hatred for Abbie. But she gets through it with everyone around her and I loved seeing her at the end – knowing she had gotten through it all and her love stayed strong for Isaac.

Oh Isaac, my beautiful Isaac. You have turned up your sexiness a hell of a lot! You cheeky, flirty, sexy, playful guy. I love him so much but when he was off sorting out Abbie and sneaking around and being blunt I was sat here like “Isaac, what are you doing? Please don’t be cheating on my girl.” I felt so bad thinking this about Isaac because his heart is filled to the brim with love for April, but you do feel that he is off doing something really bad. But when you find out exactly what Isaac has been doing and you just want to hug the shit out of him for dealing with Abbie’s bloody bitchy shit and what he does to help April through everything, dear god I need him in my life. Also, I loved how he would share a bit of himself to April, in the form of diary entries that he writes. They are the damn sweetest entries ever, they show how much he liked her from the start, to the very end of the book where I cried at the last one he wrote to April. That sealed the deal for both of them that a love like this is forever! They can survive anything thrown their way and they really have.

Be prepared to be jealous, but that chocolate scene? Yes, I read it before the book was out and also knew who Brody was too. That is the best part of being a twinnie with Karli ;).

I loved Lucy and Brody together….I say together, its more like they really didn’t get on and they bantered and fought a lot during the book but you can see the spark between them, how they begin to actually like each other little by little. Although they kind of hid it away, I would love to see a book between them, because they have so much to share from behind the scenes especially a certain thing I picked up about Lucy near the end of the book. I’d like to see why she has it and what happened. PLEASE KARLI!

I also loved how Karli mentioned some pretty hot book boyfriends from other books – I gleamed at this part and I loved how excited she got over them…cant spoil it for you, but I loved how Karli though to include the best BBF’s eveeeeeeeer.

If you have yet to read April Showers and April Fools, get them in your life now! Get Isaac and Lukas and Brody into your life. Read the drama that follows April, read how shitting amazing her BFF Katie is. I love this series and I love Karli and I think you all should too! Find you new book boyfriend in this series 🙂

MANCANDY MONDAY! The place where the hot guys go

ehufvndjvndks

Every Monday, Blame It On The Book Lovers will be discussing their favourite book boyfriend of that week in a meme called MANCANDY MONDAY!

We all love book boyfriends, so Man Candy Monday is all about sharing the love…and the hot guys around by letting everyone know the book boyfriend you have been swooning over this last week, and why!

Once you’ve posted your mancandy on your own blog, come back and post the link. We all want to know WHO your mancandy is this week and swoon right along with you.

SPOILER AHEAD…if you havent read April Fools then read at your own risk 😉

This week The Book Lovers is featuring Brody Adams from April Fools – Karli Perrin

1be0c6e13840cfd635121b15087d84d1My Brody is Dan Conn

Yes, yes, he doesnt have two arm sleves but pfft. This guy is who i imagine as Brody, so just imagine him with another arm full of tattoos.

So we were introduced to this hunk of a man in April Fools (#2). Brody is Aprils older brother. He is filled to the brim with tattoos. He drives a motorbike, he’s cocky, flirty and sexy, he attracts a hoard of women, and he’s in a band and plays guitar but underneath that is a brother who adores his sister, who comes to visit her to see she is okay after her house fire. You can see that they have a close relationship and they love each other a lot. They have been through a lot with their mother and that is enough to make siblings close.

I loved Brody from the get-go. He really is sweet, despite the things that come out of his mouth, and you can see that he just wants to make sure April is okay and she is now safe. They banter and argue like any brother and sister do, but they also habour the pain of their alcoholic mother, whom Brody now tries to look after since April moved away to university.

Brody approves of Isaac, and can see he is good for his little sister and while staying with April, he begins to fall for April’s roommate and friend Lucy. I loved the two of them together, their banter, the jealousy but when Brody;s band gets signed up, he has to leave. There is a point in the book, at the end, where you know something has hapened between Lucy and Brody, as Lucy habours something from Brody close to her heart. I would love a bookon these two, to see what happened behind the scenes we didnt see and also to see what happened in the months Brody was away as their conversation seemed to just stop.

There is always room for another bad boy with a soft exterior underneath, and Brody is that!

Excerpt

“Are you ready for desert?”
I sat up, “Oooh, we’re having desert?”
He raised his eyebrow and I immediately understood what that meant.
Communication by eyebrow.
“Ah ha, that kind of desert.”
“If you mean the delicious kind then yes, I’ve heard it’s your favourite.”
“Well you’ve heard right.”
He gave me a cocky grin, “I don’t blame you…it’s just so smooth and creamy.”
Two can play that game.
“I love how it melts in my mouth” I replied, trying to keep a straight face.
“Oh really? I need a demonstration.” He stood up and walked towards the kitchen. A few seconds later, he reappeared holding something behind his back.
“What are you hiding?”
“Your desert, of course.”
I narrowed my eyes, “I’m starting to think that we’ve just been talking about two different things.”
He shook his head and revealed the tub of chocolate body paint.
I laughed, “We are so not doing this.”
“We so are.”
“You’re crazy” I told him.
“Crazy for you.”
“Stop trying to sweet talk me.”
He winked, “Good one, I see what you did there. Sweet talk…chocolate, now take off your clothes.”
“But how will you know if I’m just using you for your chocolate?”
He slowly sauntered towards me, never once taking his eyes away from mine. My heart began to race as he bent down and whispered in my ear, “I’ll take the risk if you take off your clothes.”
