Perky by Julia Kent


One hundred years ago when I was young and impulsive (okay, it was five, alright? Five years ago…) I let my boyfriend take, let’s just say… compromising pictures of me.

(Shut up. It made sense at the time).

Surprise! The sleazy back-stabbing jerk posted them on a website and, well, you can guess what happened. That’s right.

I’m a meme. A really gross one.

You’ve seen the pictures. And if you haven’t – don’t ask. And don’t look!

As face recognition software online improves, I get tagged on social media whenever anyone shares my pictures. You try getting a thousand notifications a day, all of them pictures of your tatas.

So. I’m done.

It’s time for revenge. Let him see how it feels! But how do you get embarrassingly intimate pictures of your jerkface ex who double-crossed you five years ago?

Especially when he’s a member of the U.S.House of Representatives now?

Getting sweet between the sheets with a congressman is pretty much every political roadie’s dream, right? I’m one in a crowd.

Except to this day, he swears he didn’t do it. Pursued me for months after I dumped him five years ago. Begged me to take him back.

And I almost did it. Almost. I was weak and stupid and in love a hundred years ago.

Okay. Fine. Five.

But I still have the upper hand. Second chance romance has all the emotional feels, doesn’t it?

I can’t wait to punch him in the feels.

All I need to do is sleep with him once, take some hot-and-sweaty pics of him in… delicate positions, and bring him down. That’s it. Nothing more.

Pictures first. Revenge after. And then I win.

At least, that’s how it was supposed to happen. But then I did something worse than sexting.

I fell in love with him. Again.

I read and loved Little Miss Perfect and Fluffy when they first came out, so I was extremely ready for Perky. I loved Perky already and couldn’t wait to see what made her tick. I also knew I could count on Julia Kent to make me laugh. I am happy to say, I wasn’t disappointed in the least. I really enjoyed this story. The banter was fantastic, and the back and forth kept me on the edge of my seat. 

I’m a huge fan of second chance stories, but I’m also really critical when it comes to them. I can be a total grudge holder, but I fell so hard for Parker and Perky! I loved that Parker was so determined to show Perky he wasn’t who she thought he was, and he worked hard to get her back. While they both made mistakes in the past, their chemistry and love couldn’t be denied no matter how hard they may have tried to fight it. And boy did Perky try! I loved what a firecracker she was! I was cheering them on from beginning to end! From stolen kisses to each not so secret rendezvous, I loved everything about this story!

And wrapped up in this love story, was so much humor and witty banter. I loved the dialogue as well as the situations this couple found themselves in. I was laughing so hard throughout the whole story. This story is everything you could want from a rom-com! It is smart, funny, and brings the feels. I am so excited for Feisty to be released, because I adore this group of friends!

This can definitely be read as a standalone, but I have definitely enjoyed reading these books in order. I loved seeing Will and Mallory again and knowing their backstory as I read. I also loved feeling a bit of the tension and knowing the fallout before I started this book.
