Jolene Perry ☆ 6 Summary

E's a disabled young veteran struggling to embrace his new life When Kate and Aidan find each other neither one wants to get attached But could they be right for each other after all.. olene Perry is one of those authors where if she writes a book I must read it own it and sniff it So I was so excited when I finally got my hands on a copy of The Summer I Found YouAt first I thought the book was going to be a little weird for me Reading about a guy who lost his arm and a girl with diabetes and their budding romance had me a little on edge How could a one armed guy possibly be sexy How was this book going to keep me interested Well I didn t even need to ask those uestions because they never crossed my mind once I was actually reading the bookKate is a terrible girl She just found out she has a life threatening disease and she can t be responsible enough to take her insulin or eat right She is setting herself up to die and I can t find it in me to feel sorry for her Her top priority is worrying about her ex dumping her Not that fact that she could slip into a diabetic coma at any secondAiden is awesome Aside from the whole PTSD thing But would you really expect a guy who lost his arm and a good friend to be okay To me he seemed pretty good for a guy who went through hell and back He lost his career his future his motivation but he survived in the end He is kind caring and all the things that I don t think Kate deserved at first But they worked together so well and I am glad they found each otherI really loved how the book combined such trivial high school things with some very tough choices and lifestyles On on hand I can understand Kate just wanting to live a normal life but on the other hand I can t condone her lack of self preservationThe ending had me worried for a little bit but I am glad it happened the way it did Kate needed a wake up call and I think Aiden was the only one who was able to do that for her Which is uite sad considering they hadn t known each other that long When your FAMILY and FRIENDS cannot convince you to save yourself then you really need to rethink your priorities in lifeUpdate 6292015 I have been thinking about this book a lot lately I adore the author and I love her work so her books are always popping into my head Last night I was thinking about how I have a few different illnesses but most of them I can hide because they are inside I feel like Kate thought she could hide her disability and get away with it which technically she could But it wasn t right of her to do that Aiden can t hide his disability I am torn between right and wrong here I don t normally tell people about my ailments unless they ask or if my one visual ailment is present Oh the one hand I completely understand wanting to hide your flaws But on the other hand Kate was getting into a relationship with a guy who she could somewhat relate to in terms of disabilities But she didn t and I can t fathom why Internal conflict aside I truly think everyone should read at least one of Jolene Perry s books They are always deep and beautiful and they have such horrible trials that each character must over some Her books are very inspiring I know they inspired meOverall I gave the book 55 kitties

The Summer I Found You

All they have in common is I Found PDFEPUB #182 that they're less than perfect And all they're looking for is the perfect distractionKate's dream boyfriend has just broken up with her. Review This is my third Jolene Perry book and I have to say I think she is a favorite of mine I really enjoyed The Summer I Found You and had a hard time putting it downKate is dealing with being broken up with and her Type 1 Diabetes diagnosis Aidan is struggling with losing is his arm in Afghanistan and what to do now that he won t a lifer in the Army When Aidan s cousin introduces the two they see each other as nothing than a distraction from the things in their lives Over time though they grow to be much than thatI really like Kate She wasn t perfect at all and maybe kind of annoying but I still thought that was relatable She was dealing with a breakup she didn t see coming and a diagnosis she hasn t accepted While she was super irresponsible with her Diabetes I think it was her just not coming to terms with it and a lot of that has to do with agematurity level which I can see happeningAidan not only had to deal with losing his arm which is huge in itself but the Army was his life plan He needs to figure out what to do next One thing that I loved about Aidan was his relationship with his mom While he has to love with his aunt and uncle he visited his mom a lot and they had such a cute bondKate and Aidan at first were so unsure of each other Kate blurts out the first thing on her mind all the time which actually seems to be endearing to Aidan Everyone one is watching what they say or pretending that he doesn t have one arm and I think Kate just talking and asking uestions actually makes him a bit comfortable overall I liked how the relationship developed and they realized that they actually had feelings for each other and weren t just distractionsI had two issues with the book though One I wish Kate would have just opened up about her diabetes with Aidan I mean come on he has gone through a lot her will understand Two the book is not set in summer and I don t remember the beach being a thing That cover and title don t make sense Still those are totally minor things I read this super uick and really enjoyed the story the characters and the romanceThis review was originally posted on Rebel Mommy Book Blog

And she's still reeling from her diagnosis of type diabetes Aidan planned on being a lifer in the army and went to Afghanistan straight out of high school Now The Summer PDFEPUB or h. I ve been teetering between rating stars since I read it There wasn t anything really wrong with it I just didn t fall in love with the story I couldn t really get into the characters This is dual perspective so we get a good feel of what s going on inside each of their headsKate was diagnosed with diabetes a year prior to the start of this book and it s been a big adjustment for her The one person that has been with her through it all has been her boyfriend Shelton who promptly breaks up with her on the very first line of the very first chapter Six weeks before prom total winner right Kate feels betrayed Kate feels upset Kate gets depressed Kate tries to make him jealous with her best friend Jen s cousin Jen s cousin Aidan was honorably discharged from the army at only nineteen after losing his right arm from a bomb What does Aidan think of all this That Kate is an obnoxious high school girl I half agree and half disagreeShe has every right to be hurt about the break up they were together for a year for crying out loud But where she is extremely childish is on her health She doesn t keep up with her insulin lies about her numbers basically deciding that if she pretends she doesn t have diabetes that it will go away Smart thinking Kate She really irritated me with her health Diabetes isn t something you can just do whatever your childish heart desires I mean I understand in a way that she doesn t want to tell the whole world about her diabetes because she doesn t want everyone s pity but she acts like diabetes is like the end all be all cancer that s going to kill her Yeah you have to make tough adjustments Yeah you have to give yourself insulin shots for the rest of your life But come on diabetes Kate was overdramatic about the entire thing Too many times I found myself rolling my eyes and thinking grow up KateAidan was a much much interesting character to read about He didn t join the army because of obligation or for the benefits or the money He joined the army because that was his career That s what he wanted to do with his life And now because of some bomb he is without his career and his dominant arm He s coping with the loss of his arm with the life he planned out He s coping with the loss of his dignity and dealing with the guilt of surviving while his superior did not He has to learn to live again to drive again to dress himself and how to eat and how to do menial tasks all over againThe two of them hang out because Kate wants to abandon her responsibilities and it s not long until they fall for each other Yeah they re love story is cute But in all honesty I wasn t swooning at all It was all so blah So boring They sleep together and it was so lack luster Like that s it I didn t feel any depth Kate passes out because she didn t give herself enough insulin and because she refused to let Aidan whom she slept with whom she supposedly had feelings for someone who was supposed to be open with him that she had diabetes So she gets hospitalized and after Aidan finds out what happened he goes off on her in her hospital room Rightfully so in my opinion Could ve avoided it all KateThere were parts of this book that felt so cheesy so odd Take when Shelton found her in the hallway and administered her insulin for example Like um unrealistic muchThis book was short and lacking I finished it uick and forgot about it just as uick I forgot I read it and forgot to write my review until I looked at my reading challenge I think the most disappointing thing about this book is that it does not take place in summer Not even the end of the book is in summer Prom doesn t even happen in this book Maybe I m just picky but I was kinda hoping that a book with summer in the title would actually take place in the summerYou can read the rest of my review here
