About this author

I wear juvenile T-shirts, worn-out chucks, and eat too much chocolate. I write. A lot. I make up words, drink Shirley Temples, and suffocate a little without my iPod.

Also.
I only rate books I loved.

More books by Jolene Perry…

I didn’t set out to write romance when I first started writing. I just didn’t. Some of my favorite books have been as much about family relationships and friend relationships and history as love stories, or more.


Still.


The first book I wrote was a love story.


So was the second.


And the third…


Holding hands


So when I started to write STRONGER THAN YOU KNOW (which used to be called The Happiness of Joy, and then...

Just. Sometimes everything falls apart at once, you know" And I'm slowly putting it back together, but it's taking a freaking eternity.Jolene Perry

I run my fingers along the thick, fabric wallpaper to steady myself. Putting one foot in front of another feels like learning to walk all over again. My body's still working. Heart's still beating. Lungs still moving. But not because I want them to. They do those things on their own, without me even asking. So why didn't they do it for Eamon ? How could his body just give up on him like that ? Fall apart. It made him seen so fragile, and I don't want to remember him that way. He was the strongest guy I knew. How could he break so easily ? It seems like our bodies would be built better. It just doesn't fucking seem real.Jolene Perry

I started this book like 8 times before it finally caught.
I kept going back to it, because I knew it was right up the alley of the kind of YA books I love.
It's interesting because the way the girl thought in circles and the same things kept coming up...more

“He’s the need and the sparks and the laughter, and he touches my heart in a way it’s never been touched before. It’s terrifying and so honest it makes me dizzy.”
Jolene Perry, Dizzy

“Because brothers don’t let each other wander in the dark alone”
Jolene Perry, My Heart for Yours

“We only see what's close to us, but if we allow ourselves to simply feel, and not see, we can understand so much more.”
Jolene Perry, The Next Door Boys

“A laugh jumps out of my mouth, surprising me. I can’t even remember the last time I laughed and it puts me on edge. I suddenly want to do the same thing to her. Let her see how it feels to teeter on that cliff.”
Nyrae Dawn, Charade

“Everything’s not always black and white, Princess. Sometimes we have to do shit because there’s not another choice. Maybe you should think about that before you snub your nose at me.”
Nyrae Dawn, Charade

“But when he smiles? Really smiles, it’s perfect. Like toothpaste commercial, boy-next-door beauty that makes it really hard to be pissed at him.”
Nyrae Dawn, Charade

“There’s no talking. No laughing. Nothing but eager hands and sad eyes.”
Nyrae Dawn, Charade

“Colt lies on my bed and pulls me down behind him. I expect him to go for my clothes, but instead he kisses me again.
“Blanket.” I mutter, between kisses.
“If you’re cold I’m doing something wrong.”

Stephanie I just wanted to say thank you so much for sending me the extra book because the original was a little late getting to me. It was absolutely unnecessary but I greatly appreciate it. I can not wait to read it. Spill over sounds just as good Manipulation.

Thanks for the add also!


Christina Lyn Thanks for adding me Joleen!


Lucinda Dear Jolene,
I would like to thank you for being my friend here on GoodReads, which is an honor and a delight. It is such a brilliant site where one is able to converse with so many likeminded people including authors and readers, writers and book bloggers. I look forward to future book discussions with you.
Kind Regards
Lucinda x

Fred I just love you Jolene, and your lovely books, so rich and dark and deep and real. I honestly thought we were friends already, but I know you have a complex and systematic approach to Goodreads for your various personae, and am just happy to be part of it! xoxo
