April Landau thinks she has everything she’s ever wanted. Her high school sweetheart, a house she can’t afford, her bipolar tabby cat, and she’s all set to begin her Junior year of college. Just when she least expects it, her life gets thrown for a loop. When things between her and her long time boyfriend unravel, she becomes stuck in a downward spiral of emotion. Finally, opening her eyes to the fact that she may have given up more than she ever could have imagined in this relationship. She finds herself struggling to keep her head above water.
Enter April’s next door neighbor— Jared Hoffman. He’s her complete opposite. A high school drop out who was forced to take over his parent’s business after their untimely death. It’s no surprise this tragedy affected him greatly, causing him to recede almost completely from society.
But he has one secret. A secret he’s been carrying around for years.
What happens when their worlds collide? Can an old friendship be the one thing that brings these two back to life?

A new adult love story filled with drama, sex, death, and the complications of all of the above.

My review of Discovering April
First I have to say I truly loved this book. It is well written and the characters are well developed and easy to relate too. I mean who among us hasn't been hurt by someone we love?
April is a college student struggling to pay her bills and maintain a relationship with her boyfriend Hunter.
Hunter is pretty wealthy and a football player and a jerk.  April's parent's have moved to Florida and left their house to April.
 April works part time at the local coffee shop, and does not make much money as a matter of fact most of the time doesn't even have food in her refrigerator.  April is pretty devastated when she finds out Hunter is cheating on her.  Her world comes crashing down  around her and she finds herself at a loss when she and Hunter break up.  She is in a pretty bad way, that is when her life long friend and neighbor Jared steps in and decides to help snap her out of the funk she is in.  Jared challenges her, makes her think and do things that in the past she would have done without thinking about it.  April didn't realize how much of herself she had lost by shaping her life and her future around Hunter.  Now with Jared's help she is finally beginning to find herself again. 
Jared has been in love with April all of his life.  He has watched her his entire life,  he could not just sit back and watch her suffer any longer.  Slowly as April becomes the April he once knew, he tells her that he loves her, but he doesn't want to be the rebound guy.
Jared and April are the perfect couple, most of his friends like her and she fits right in.  Except for Jared's friend Eric who for some reason seems to hate April.  Just as April and Jared begin to get closer and tragedy strikes. April is tested in the worst way anyone could imagine when she and Jared are hit my a truck while out on his motorcycle.

“Why, Jared Hoffman, do you not want this?” I tease, slowly unbuttoning his shirt.
He smiles, his hands bracing themselves on the bed at either side of my head. “I didn’t say that... it’s just I don’t want to rush anything.”
Jared’s shirt falls open when I finally reach the last button. His perfect abs are shadowed and defined by the moonlight. My eyes start up his chest. “Rush?” I whisper softly as my hands graze their way up his biceps that frame my face. “Jare… this has been seven long years in the making. I think we’ve waited long enough.”
He pauses for a second. I hear his breath hitch in his throat as his dark eyes study my face. For some reason, I’m surprised when I feel Jared’s lips on mine. The passion between us is renewed at my admission. It’s my turn to moan against his lips. My legs automatically slide up and down his, causing my dress to hike up slightly before my legs wrap themselves around his waist. His hands make their way up my side slowly as if ingraining into memory the curve of my body. My hands have automatically found their way to his belt. I slip my fingers through it and release the hook, swinging it open. Before I know it, I’m unbuttoning his jeans. That’s when I feel his hands squeeze me tight. His lips leave mine for the first time since I spoke, and I feel them slowly trace their way down my neck. My fists clench against the skin on his waist.
“Oh, Jared,” I groan.
His body freezes above me for a fraction of a second. His head lifts out of the crook of my neck to meet my eyes again.
“Do you know how long I’ve waited to hear you call my name like that?” he whispers.
My hands find their way to his face and mingle with his hair. “There’s more where that came from.” I shoot him a sexy smirk before pulling his lips back to mine.
