Blog Tour Review: NIGHT SKY by Jolene Perry


Girl I’ve loved, girl I’m falling for. Now that they’re both in view, the problem is clear.

After losing Sarah, the friend he’s loved, to some other guy, Jameson meets Sky. Her Native American roots, fluid movements, and need for brutal honesty become addictive fast. This is good. Jameson needs distraction – his dad leaves for another woman, his mom’s walking around like a zombie, and Sarah’s new boyfriend can’t keep his hands off of her.

As he spends time with Sky and learns about her village, her totems, and her friends with drums - she's way more than distraction. Jameson's falling for her fast.
 
But Sky’s need for honesty somehow doesn’t extend to her life story – and Jameson just may need more than his new girl to keep him distracted from the disaster of his senior year.

I received this book for participation on the blog tour.  Holy wow! This is a great book. When I read the synopsis for this book I was a little unsure of how quickly, or well, it would capture my attention. I think it's safe to say that I was hooked no more than 5 pages in.There wasn't a whole lot of build up with this book, which was perfectly fine with me. Getting to the root of the problem and meat of the story from the start is a great way to get me to finish. :)

 Jameson is yummy and so easy to fall in love with. I loved the realistic struggle that he faced with girls, family, and school. He's smart, sexy, and seems fun to be around. While he sounds like maybe the perfect guy, trust me he has his flaws. Very loveable flaws, but flaws nonetheless. An easy character to connect with, especially since the book is told from his point of view. (YAY for boy pov!!)


Now onto Sky. Loved her too. She's honest, engaging, and a girl I think I could be friends with. Her life isn't exactly perfect either, and she and Jameson work. I was afraid when I started reading this that I'd struggle with Sky and Sarah (the other girl) but  I didn't. While they are both good characters, Sky was exactly who Jameson needed. 


Overall this is a quick read, but a really really good one! I highly recommend you go get it now.

  1. Thanks for a good book recommendation! I'm always hunting for another author to read. When I find one I like, I read all that he or she has written, and then I'm sad. I also feel that way when a good book ends...sigh.
