2.5 stars. NOT a standalone. You must read April Showers first.


Basically the story goes something like this:

Lukas is in the hospital after being caught in the fire that burned down April’s house


2 weeks pass by. Lukas gets better so that means April gets better so that means April’s teacher boyfriend Isaac gets better.

EVERYONE gets better.


Isaac and April are still together, hiding their relationship from everyone except April's best

Questions were starting to be answered.
Isaac and April’s trust were put to the test.
Can April understand what Isaac was doing?
Can Isaac let April trust him without a shadow of doubt?

The story picked up where it left. And yes, I was now sure that it was dear Lukas who suffered the burns and scars of the fire. The author, Karli, loved throwing curveballs along the way, what happened at April Showers (the fire, Isaac and Lukas) were turning points for April to acknowledged that she loved Isaac, tha

April's story picks off from where it had ended in April Showersyou know, the fire, the house burning down, Lukas being trapped inside and being rescued by the firefighters? Yeah, remember all of those? It's just a shocker

I really loved April Showers, so obviously I’d been anxiously awaiting book two! With how April Showers ended, I was a little worried what the outcome would be. To say that I was expecting the worst, but hoping for the best would be an understatement.

The story opens with a news article giving a little more insight on the “accident” & what happened to Lukas. After the fire, April started staying with Isaac, but with him still having a week left before he finished working & they could make

April Showers left us with quite the cliff-hanger! The ending was pure torture! April Fools more than makes up for the emotional terrorism that the end of AS inflicted upon readers. I was so excited to see a continuation of April's story. I love April. She may be one of my favorite characters. She's not perfect, she makes mistakes, she doesn't have a great life, but she lives her life. She doesn't wallow in self-pity. She isn't ter

They're back!!!!!!! I absolutely LOVED the fun and flirty April Showers by Karli Perrin, so to say I was excited about reading the sequel is an understatement! Once again, Karli has given us a book that will make you laugh out loud and swoon and feel like you're spending time with friends again.

I really missed these characters so I was a mixture of happy and sad to finally be able to read the conclusion to April's story. If you've read April Showers

I was so excited when Karli asked me to be a part of the April Fools blog tour! I hadn't yet read April Showers, so I knew this would be the perfect opportunity to read both of them! As you saw from my review yesterday (here), I really enjoyed the first book in the April series. However, I LOVED its sequel!

I didn't have the same issues I felt before where I felt the book was mainly driven by April's indecision to choose between Isaac and Lukas. After all- April has made her choice. I am glad sh

his is the second book in Karli’s April series. The story picks up from the cliffhanger where April Showers ended. If you’ve not read April Showers, read my review here, it is a must read especially before April Fools. Firstly, thank you to Karli for asking me to be part of the blog tour, it has been a pleasure!

When we last saw April Adams she had just saw her house burning down, with her best friend inside, and now we get to see how that story unfolded.

I was given an ARC of this book by the author in exchange for an impartial review. I remember when book one in this series- April Showers was released. It seemed to be the book that everyone was talking about at the time. I gave into peer pressure and ending up reading it myself and was completely stunned. It was an absolutely amazing book but the ending….I dreaded the ending because if it was a cliffhanger, then there would have to be a book two and there was no way book 2 could ever be as good ...more

And here the story continuous, thank god it does, because the cliff-hanger in book number 1 was almost unbearable.
In the last scene we saw April Adams, she had just seen her house burning down and her best friend Lukas went inside to rescue her.

Thank god, Lukas is still alive. April is so grateful to him, for trying to safe her. Their friendship wasn’t in the best state before and now they have the chance to mend it again and it was a total indulgence to read this. I’m glad April got her friend

Karli, Karli, Karli Perrin!! You had me at Isaac.

“What I’ve learned…
Her name is April.
She likes my lanterns.
Red lipstick is hot.
Mixers don’t suck after all.
I like dancing.
I hate sharing.
She makes me happy.”

April Fools picks right up where April Showers left off. April needs to keep her relationship with Isaac a secret and also needs to deal with her friendship with Lukas. He is still recouping from the fire but wants to repair things with April. During all this, April’s brother comes in

This review was originally posted on Star Crossed Reviews I received this book for free from the Author in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.This book was fantastic. Karli is such a good writer. She is now in my top 3 favourite authors.

I was easily drawn back in to April's world like I had just left her yesterday and I couldn't have been happier to be back.

I thought Brody was the best brother. He was protective but he also knew

April Fools picks up where April Showers leaves off. Lukas is recovering in the hospital after the horrible fire that almost took his life. Other than the fact that Isaac and April are still having to hide their relationship until his ob at Manchester University ends, things seem to be going really well between them, yet April can't help but feel like he's keeping secrets, especially where the evil Abbie is concerned. April's brother Brody also makes an appearance and is a nice addition to the s ...more

Having read April Showers a while ago, and being left dangling over the edge of a cliff-hanger I could not wait to shut my blinds, cosy up on the sofa with my kindle in my hand to carry on where April showers finished and April Fools starts.

April is dealing, emotionally, with the aftermath of the fire and trying to keep Lukas as a friend and Isaac as her lover, while trying to get some normality back into her life, by returning back to her studies.

So I finished this book at the crack of dawn eager to discover April and Isaac's fate as well as that massive cliffhanger in 'April Showers' and I must say that it fulfilled my book cravings.

It caught me by surprise when the book mentioned 'Beautiful Disaster' and 'The mighty storm' because coincidentally they are one of my favourite books that I like to re-read and find myself liking April more than I already do due to sharing the same book boyfriend. Good choice in book boyfriends.

April fools is book two in Karli Perrin's April series. I loved it Karli starts as she means to go on, this book was just as good as the first. Luckily this time we have no 'need to know now, stalk the author till she tells us' cliffhanger ending. However the ending was great and it was good to see the characters development and interactions in the epilogue. hopefully this is not the last book in this series and if it is I really hope that we get Lucy and Brody's story because there is definitel ...more

I am so glad I finally made the time to read this fantastic love triangle series from Karli Perrin. The first book leaves you in a unexpected cliffhanger of a lifetime. The second book continues 2 wks later of how Lukas recuperate from April's house fire. We have more of Isaac and April of course and how they work out their issues of being in a tutor and student relations.

We get more Lucy and we meet April's bad boy older brother Brody. We

I wanted to skim thru April showers, so I could remember exactly what happens at the end..but I loved that it started right up from the last book.

I'm so happy I finally got to read this book. I loved the characters, loved the epilogue, love the boys (Brody & Isaac & Lukas too bc he really was a great guy) I loved that there was a bit of drama, but not too much. The book was steamy, and romantic, and funny. I love the humor....the conversations April has with Isaac

This one had just the right amount of excitement that was slightly lacking in book one, and I loved it.

Once again, the writing style was really fun and witty - with funny little inner monologue comments.

I think I just fell in love with Isaac again :D

I also loved the April's favourite book was Beautiful Disaster and the fact that Isaac bought it for her, and was reading it :). And then you had Thoughtless's Kellan Kyle and Griffin incorporated into the book, which was just great, and also unexp

April Fools begins where April Showers ended. Yes, April Showers was a cliffhanger, but I only hate cliffhangers when I have to wait for the next book to be released. I was so glad that I could start April Fools the minute April Showers ended. The story continues to be fast paced though the HEA. April Fools get to be placed on my "Wonderful" listing of books. I'll never forget the story and how Isaac was there for April. Now, I want a story for Brody. Mmmmmmmm

Wow you've done it again, another fantastic book followed on perfectly from April showers and what a story line absolutely brilliant, I loved Brody he was a fantastic character and mixed so well with April. I was so glad nothing split April and Isaac apart, and a perfect ending well done. I can't wait to see what you bring out next!!!!!

I LOVED IT. 5 STARS. The good thing about this book was that there wasnt loads of secrets and dramas and the whole splitting up for weeks on end while they sorted themselves out. It was dealt with there and then and resembled real life. It was so sweet! I feel sad their journey has ended but it was the perfect ending to their love story.

I sense a possible spin off for Lucy and Brody though! x

April Fool's is a short, easy read, that adds even more depth to the April series. I definitely enjoyed it, and loved reading on with April and Isaac's relationship. These two are absolutely made for each other, and it shows through their chemistry.

An amazing finish to Aprils story. I was blessed with an ARC so I don't want to give away what happens but Karli has done it again.

I just want more maybe if we all nag her she will write us one more book.
