REVIEW: Waiting for April by Jaime Loren
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.
I love many books but there aren't many that truly leave me wordless...
Waiting for April did just that. With it being Jaime Loren's first novel I expected this read to be average. But, Waiting for April is the complete oposite!
I was pulled in by page one as Loren leads the readers in with confusion as to why Scott's freaking out about April being "late to open her curtains" and leaves you in a state of suspense through the entire novel.
The chemistry between April and Scott was magnificent. From their humor to both of their pig headedness, their relationship had me jealous.
There are so many twists and so much action that I could not put this novel down!
The ending leaves you with such shock that I, literally, stared at the last page after I'd finished reading for at least three minutes. I was so flabbergasted, I couldn't even form a full thought except that, Loren better give me more! So I googled it and found this quote by the author,
"I’m so excited to announce that Momentum have recently acquired two more books in this series, making it a trilogy! Yay! There’s also a lot of room within the story to expand with novellas, so I have a feeling I’ll be living in Scott and April’s world for a while to come."
There is no release date on the second or third novels yet.

I give this novel 5/5 stars.
