Blog Tour: [Review] Night Sky by Jolene Perry

Title: Night Sky
Author: Jolene B. Perry
Published: March 1st 2012 by Tribute Books
Genre: YA contemporary romance
Rating: ★★★★
Goodreads summary:
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.
Emma's thoughts:

I really, really, really love reading books from male POV's. And heellooo Jameson! Why do you not exist? Reading from Jay's perspective was utterly enthralling! If you're like me and get constantly aggravated and confused by boys and their incomprehensible decisions, read this! Although Jameson isn't like that. He's decent, more than that, he's genuine. Damn Sarah for being so blind. Damn Sky for being so lucky.

Night Sky starts off typically. He's in love with his best friend, she gets with another guy, he's depressed, blah blah blah. But when you meet Sky, it's like wooah. Take a step back ladies and gentlemen! Her personality oozes confidence and beauty. I don't blame Jay for liking her at all. People are drawn to confidence and Sky is the damn epitome of it. 'Are you gonna drive me to your house, offer me a Pepsi and get me into your pool?' Um, what guy isn't going to say yes to that?

Their relationship is quirky and hot. They depend on each other's honesty, they tell the truth. I love the way Jolene Perry wrote this. Jameson's drawn to the honesty, he begins to love it, crave it. Watching his character change and develop throughout the story is a touching journey.

I truly enjoyed how realistic yet surprising Night Sky. There are twists that you would never imagine happening in a million years, but Perry makes it real. His emotions are real, his feelings, the things that he does. I could see it playing out in my mind, the way that Jameson reacted to situations. It never felt forced or unbelievable. I admire Jolene Perry for writing so beautiful from a guy's perspective.

Rating: 4 stars~ I just couldn't get enough of Jameson♥
 I push my way through the masses of dancing couples, out the heavy doors of the school, and stop.
 "...if you don't like her enough to ask, you don't like her enough to go out with her."
 "I'm sorry that kissing me is so torturous for you."
