Review & Giveaway: April & Oliver by Tess Callahan


Like all close friends, April and Oliver love each other deeply. Their connection is so powerful, it's like it has a life of it's own. When they get older life pulls them apart and they go their separate ways. When April's brother dies, she sees her childhood best friend once again. The two are complete opposites and the definition of the saying "opposites attract". Are the two meant to live together happily ever after or will past secrets come back to haunt them?

This was an intense and enjoyable read. April and Oliver are perfect for each other and they have a way of forcing themselves into your heart. You can't help but wish for the best.
