Night Sky by Jolene Perry - Review

Welcome to Reading It All's stop on the Night Sky tour brought to you by Tribute Books!

Title: Night Sky
Author: Jolene Perry

Synopsis: 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.

My Thoughts: After being on a bit of a paranormal and dystopian kick, it was so refreshing to dive into this book. This was a love story told so beautifully, and from a male point of view. I haven't read many love stories like this (or any, come to think of it). Jolene Perry did such an amazing job in this book. Looking at love through Jameson's eyes was so different and highly enjoyable. 

I love the characters in this book. Jameson is, I suppose, a typical teenage boy. His struggles are things teens struggle with everyday. Pressures of school, sports, family, and dating. I think that Perry did such a perfect job of showing how hard these struggles can be. With Sky, Perry did another amazing job of touching on issues that many teens face. Although we are seeing Sky's issues through Jameson's point of view, they are still portrayed so well. I felt so much sympathy through out this book for both Jameson and Sky. 

I loved all the beautiful scenes that were described. Everything from the bottom of a swimming pool to a bright casino. Las Vegas is a fun setting, and I loved that not only did we see some of the "night life" so to speak, but also we got to see how the actual residents live their lives. 

This book was so amazing! I read it in a day (thank goodness my husband was home to help with kids), and hated every time I had to put it down. I plan to go check out Jolene Perry's other books. She has definitely caught my attention with Night Sky.

I recieved an e-copy of Night Sky by Jolene Perry in exchange for an honest review. All thoughts and opinions are my own.


  1. Love stories have been told since the beginning of time, so to say this a take on love that you've never read before, is high praise. Thanks Melissa!

  2. This sounds really cute and beautiful! I have rarely read any romance books from a male POV so that peaks my interest. I'm curious if Jameson ends up with Sarah or stays with Sky.
