Who doesn't love a ménage story with a girl and two guys? I certainly wasn't complaining.
What's a girl to do when two of her best friends make it known that they love her romantically. Get sucked into a ménage, that's what. Fiona doesn't know what to do once things heat up between her, Owen and Asher, but soon things get complicated forcing the three of them to make a decision about their relationship that may end their friendship.
First off, Mari Carr doesn't disappoint with her fourth installment in the Wilder Irish series. This book is equal parts sexy and fun with many characters from the previous books making an appearance. This romance series is in a category of its own with its constant portrayal of a stable family that rallies around its members, supporting them and their different lifestyles. When you first start reading April Fools, you would think that this would be your typical ménage storyline but Mari Carr does an excellent job switching things up and keeping us entertained with the different twists and turns.
Characterization and voice is still strong even with this being the fourth book. Fiona is a strong independent woman but she's also a bit unsure. Asher is this masculine nerdy guy who also happens to be very dominate once in private. Owen on the other hand is a womanizer with a hidden secret no one would have guessed. With the introduction of these characters into the series, Mari does an amazing job distinguishing them from each other and the characters introduced in previous books. The characters are realistic and relatable which I think is one of the most important things in a book. Their chemistry is off the charts, making for some hot scenes.
Overall, Mari Carr did an amazing job. If you haven't already read any of her books, go do it now. You won't be disappointed.
A contrarian at heart. I prefer The Lord of the Rings over Harry Potter and Narnia. I love Country Music and John Hughes movies and am the worst at singing the correct lyrics.
