April & Oliver by Tess Callahan review & Giveaway


Best friends since childhood, the sexual tension between April and Oliver has always been palpable. Years after being completely inseparable, they become strangers, but the wildly different paths of their lives cross once again with the sudden death of April's brother. Oliver, the responsible, newly engaged law student finds himself drawn more than ever to the reckless, mystifying April - and cracks begin to appear in his carefully constructed life. Even as Oliver attempts to "save" his childhood friend from her grief, her menacing boyfriend and herself, it soon becomes apparent that Oliver has some secrets of his own--secrets he hasn't shared with anyone, even his fiancé.


My Thoughts:

April & Oliver was one of my favorite books that I have read this month, it has an emotional edge to it that keeps readers interested. Tess Callahan’s writing reminded me of Nicholas Sparks with a darker twist to it, and the opening of the book will have readers wanting more, this is one of the books that I hope there will be a sequel to as I found at the end I wanted to know more. For a debut author, Tess Callahan knows her way around a good novel. If you only read one contemporary fiction novel this year make it April & Oliver.
