Review: Night Sky by Jolene Perry

Night Sky by Jolene Perry
Publisher: Tribute Books
Genre: YA Contemporary
Format: Kindle

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 honestly 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.

Oh. Em. Gee. Swoon! Oh, thank you Jolene! I trusted you and you totally came through for me. Honestly I didn't even care what this book was about, but I knew I wanted to read it because I trust author Jolene Perry as a writer. I read her debut novel Next Door Boys and I loved it. I knew she would give me what I wanted. A book full of kissing. Huzzah! It's not only full of kissing, but she does write some super great love scenes. I mean, seriously. She can deliver! 

When I bought it I finally read the synopsis. I know, kind of weird right? Ha! I even broke my book buying ban for it. Well, it actually sounded good too. I loved the Native American aspect to the story and I found myself wanting Sky to talk more about it. There were parts where I was about to dip my hand into the book and slap her silly if she didn't start spilling the beans! Get with it gurl! Don't be a hypocrite! BE HONEST! 

This books is actually told through Jameson's POV. Which I loved! I mean, I love a dual point of view, but that's been done to death. It was nice to get into the guys head for once. Feel all the romance from him. YES! It was like reading Midnight Sun by Stephanie Meyer. You know, Twilight through Edwards eyes. I know you drooled over that book as much as I did. I absolutely loved knowing what Jameson was thinking all the time. I really liked seeing him fall for Sky and it was so awesome to be inside a guy's head for once!

Let me just talk about the romance. The hotness of it all. H-O-T. Squeel! I like my books to have more than one piddly kissing scene. I want lots of kissing. I want excitement. I want to actually feel like I'm being kissed while I'm reading it. Is that weird? I don't care. I'm married, but I'm gonna tell you, I LIVE for the romance of it all in books. It's nice to stir up those feelings while reading. Isn't it?! I was feeling butterflies in my stomach and light tingly feelings all over. Spot on Jolene! Thank you!

The story line is good and there is  character development in droves.  Along with several surprises! I read it super quick because I just couldn't help myself. I was loving it. Stayed up until about 1am reading then got back up at 4am to finish because I wanted more! I love when that happens. I'm not even tired. If you're looking for a hot book then this is it! It's fun and heavy all at the same time. 

"Now that they’re both in view, the problem is clear. 
Girl I’ve loved, girl I’m falling for. Let’s meet in my driveway and see if we can give Jameson his first heart attack."

    @Tribute Books Fantastic book! Total brain candy! There needs to be more books with the male POV. So happy it was so affordable too!
