Night Sky - Jolene Perry Night sky was very different from my usual contemporary romance reads. It’s a story which affects you much deeper. It’s not just about an annoying love triangle that a lot of books these days tend to focus on but a heartfelt touching story about a young boys struggle with a chaotic life and everything it throws at you. Jameson certainly had his fair share of problems to deal with.Jameson has been in love with his best friend Sarah for the last three years, he’s wanted to tell her how he’s felt but never got the courage to do so. But when Sarah gets together with Eric; a guy that Sarah could do so much better than, Jameson is majorly cut up about it, the worse thing is he has to deal with seeing them with their hands all over each other all the time and he has a hard time accepting that he’s missed his chance of telling Sarah how he’s felt. However out one night, Jameson randomly bumps into Sky; she’s enigmatic, drop dead gorgeous and lives on his street! The more time he spends with her, the more time he can’t stop thinking about her. But Sky doesn’t want to get too close just yet, as is Jameson completely over Sarah? Or just being with her because he missed his chance and needs someone to help him forget her?I praise Jolene Perry for giving me a love triangle that didn’t leave me endlessly frustrated. With most love triangles these days I’m always conflicted over who the main character should end up with, but with the Night Sky I had no problem deciding. I was all for Jameson and Sky’s relationship. When he was with Sky he didn’t know what to expect and I think that’s what I liked about their relationship, everything was spur of the moment and impulsive. I felt that he never really knew Sarah, he was just in love with the idea of being with her, and not with the real person she was. As the story progresses you’re given a real insight into her character and frankly I didn’t like it at all.If you thought that this love triangle was a headache, poor Jameson had so many other problems thrown his way, that slowly chip away at him. I really did feel for him at times.What I liked about this book; was getting inside Jameson’s head; seeing how he was thinking and feeling. I think Jolene Perry did a fantastic job of providing a realistic perspective from a male. In the past I’ve found it hugely difficult to find a decent read from a male perspective, but with the Night Sky I found I could connect with Jameson, it was great having an insight in how he saw and analysed things. I also liked seeing his vulnerable side, which we don’t usually get much of these days. Night Sky was a book with a lot of potential; it dealt with so many issues teens have to deal with effectively. And certainly kept me on my toes with the number of spanners it threw into the works.A big thank you to Tribute books for giving me the opportunity to read this book.This review and more can also be found on my blog: The Readers Den
