Best friends since childhood, the sexual tension between April and Oliver has always been palpable. Years after being completely inseparable, they become strangers, but the wildly different paths of their lives cross once again with the sudden death of April's brother. Oliver, the responsible, newly engaged law student finds himself drawn more than ever to the reckless, mystifying April - and cracks begin to appear in his carefully constructed life. Even as Oliver attempts to "save" his childhood friend from her grief, her menacing boyfriend and herself, it soon becomes apparent that Oliver has some secrets of his own--secrets he hasn't shared with anyone, even his fiancé. But April knows, and her reappearance in his life derails him. Is it really April's life that is unraveling, or is it his own? The answer awaits at the end of a downward spiral...towards salvation.

The end..OMG..Ok after a few minutes of re-reading the last few pages i totally got it!! Breath..I feel better now..move on.
What the.....? It can't end like this!! After everything all that you go through with these characters, what the hell? I am a bit mad, need some time to calm down.
I'm still on the fence on how I feel about this book. I like it enough to keep reading, because I wanted to know if April & Oliver ended up together. The author eludes to that fact in the very last paragraph of the book...but leaves me feeling no closure whatsoever. I needed more.I enjoyed the au...
I am totally torn...do I give it 2 stars because of the last 100 pages or do I give it 3 or 4 stars b/c I liked the first 226 pages? 2 stars it is because of the way it ended...I felt very unsatisfied with the ending...
I have to admit, I was initially bummed out upon starting April & Oliver. Because I'm kinda bummed about people who have kids and then don't bother to take care of them, treat them well, teach them right... It hurts to read about women who've been broken so badly that they don't know what else to do...
