Waiting for April by @JaimeLoren Review @momentumbooks

Waiting for April
Release date: February 12, 2015
Publisher: Momentum
Genre: New Adult Paranormal Romance

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.

My Rating: 5 Roses

The best compliment I can give a book was that it was different and unique enough to surprise me. Waiting for April was able to do just that. Beautifully romantic, packed with secrets and twists, this book was brilliant. It took the used-before concept on reincarnation and made it into a new story that had me absorbed from page 1. I absolutely loved this book.

April was a great heroine. She wasn't perfect. She had flaws and made mistakes but, at the end of the day, she was kind, determined, and admitted to her mistakes. I thought she was lovely.

I absolutely adored Scott. He was so purely devoted to April. To him, her happiness was of the utmost importance, even if that meant stepping aside and letting her live her own life. He had been through a lot in the years he repeatedly lost and found April and that made him a deep and easily sympathetic character. Not to mention he was totally swoon-worthy and so sweet. I just loved him.

The romance was a delight. Things started off rocky but there was never a doubt that April and Scott loved each other, even before April knew the truth of her past. They were the type of couple who would die for each other or wait for each other, whatever needed to be done so that they could be together. And, there was some seriously hot chemistry between these two. Let's just say they couldn't keep their hands off of each other. I thought they were perfect together.

The plot moved quickly, keeping me hooked right from the start. There were a few twists along the way, along with some secrets that took me by surprise. I loved the story and the ending just about shattered my heart. There had better be a sequel because there is so much more of the story to tell and my heart can't accept the ending as it is. Here's hoping for a book 2!

Waiting for April was a fantastic romance with a paranormal touch. I absolutely loved this wonderfully romantic and pleasantly surprising read. Romance lovers, this is a must read book.
