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...

Reviews Perky

  • maggieandteddy
    I love this author's humor. A mixture of dry humor and silliness.Perky is the bff of the heroine from Fluffy. 1st person POV - Perky. Once again our girl gets caught in an embarrassing situation. On film. On the internet. Mallory (from Fluffy) now seems like the voice of reason. Perky really is OTT kooky. I really like her. Wow, I need a strong cup (or 7) of coffee just to keep up. Mallory's Will is great as a supporting character. He and Mallory...

Yep, that's exactly how I felt when I finished this book.This book was so smart, funny and entertaining.I liked Perky in Fluffy, but I absolutely adored Perky's (Persephone) character in this book.Perky is an honest, smart, loyal, funny and dramatic character to read. If she were real, I would definitely want to be her friend. Life w...

    Perky is another laugh-out-loud, sexy romantic comedy from Julia Kent, and you do not want to miss this fun, feel-good second-chance romance. Parker and Persephone, aka Perky, were deeply in love when he broke her heart and caused her to become an infamous meme. They haven’t seen or talked to one another in five years when they’re reunited at their friends’ wedding, and the sparks fly and chemistry sizzles as soon as they’re in the same r...

    I loved this one. It's a funny read. Persephone (Perky) is a wild card, you never really know what she's going to do. Her friends are just as fun as her. The banter between all of characters is funny. Perky was the unfortunate victim of a meme with her in it having been shared all over. She blames Parker, her ex, for it. It's been five years since she has seen or talked to Parker. They are reunited at Will and Mallory rehearsal rehearsal dinner. ...

    This awesome sequel to the hilarious Fluffy brings all our favourite characters together again. Persephone, or Perky as she prefers to be called, is in a dilemma.  The man she loved but who betrayed her is back after 5 years of being apart and her hormones are in a state of quantum flux and her heart doesn't know whether to reach out or run for cover.Perky's trust in Parker Campbell, now the esteemed Congressman Parker Campbell, was torn to shre...

    *** ARC kindly provided by the author in exchange for an honest review *** Perky was a hilarious, tremendous and so much fun story.  Be ready to come back to this place when the characters had no filters and mostly the most uncensored of all, Persephone, « Perky ».A woman with a dazzling personality, who doesn’t give a damn about what people think. Hot tempered, stubborn and passionate. She was so unpredictable at times, wild and also not...
  • Kay Daniels (Kay Daniels Romance)
    Perky is a second chance, steamy romcom with a message about forgiveness and friendship. Persephone (nicknamed Perky) is just a tad stubborn, but full of passion. Anytime her and Parker are in the same vicinity sparks ignite and clothes seem to vanish. They are one hot pair. The more you learn about the betrayal, you understand why she walked away and had to protect her heart.  If she had stayed it wouldn't have taken much to give in to Parker ...
  • PP's Bookshelf
    Perky by Julia Kent was pure magic. There is no other way to describe this epic, phenomenal and out of the body feeling I am having.The words flowed out from the pages and possessed my heart and soul. I am completely under Julia Kent's hypnotic spell and I do not want to come out of this warm, fuzzy, aching and intense post-reading bliss.Some stories are all about the journey rather than the destination. Perky is one of those books. Perky is one ...
  • Cass (Bookaholics Reading Haven)
    4.5 Stars Now I’ll be honest and say that it took me a little bit to get into this one, and I honestly don’t know why because I absolutely loved Perky in Fluffy. I think I was having an off day but I pushed through it and I’m so glad I did because this book was just absolutely freaking brilliant! It’s full of so many funny moments just like the first book in this series. The banter between all of the characters is just so freaking hilario...
  • Ga Books LoverX
    THIS BOOK WAS ABSOLUTELY EXCELLENT!!! We are introduced to Perky in Fluffy and it just made me more and more intrigued into how everything was going to play out for her. This girl is strong and fierce, but that doesn't mean she has a heart of ice in fact it is completely the other way around. She gave her heart over 5 years ago to Parker and then a horrific event goes down that changes her completely and she looses the love of her life.This book ...
  • Gina
    A delightfully funny story with unforgettable characters, laugh out loud moments and many other emotions this author makes you feel. Perky is loved and Parker has a lot of schmoozing to do to get her back in his life, being a politician it shouldn't be too hard, right? I received a complimentary copy and this review is voluntary.
  • Lana-White Hot Reads
    Laugh out Loud funny- Lana ~White Hot ReadsPerky and Parker are hilarious and hot at the same time. Perky is hell bent of destroying Parker's life after hers was ruined 5 years ago. Parker denies that he didn't do it but Perky wont believe him. The attraction and pull that these two still have after 5 years apart is so apparent but will it allow Perky to forgive and believe. All the usual suspects are in this book from Fluffy and I can't wait for...

    4.5 Stars! Perky, Fiona,and Mal are like women after my own heart! The names they call Parker are the reasons I own so many adult coloring books (this is entirely a true story)! Tell me... can you pass up a Twatwaffle coloring page? I think not! So, immediately upon hearing these terms of endearment... well, I just knew they were my kind of crazy! I love and appreciate the righteous indignation they show on Perky's behalf. Even then, when she's i...
  • Garden Of REden
    REVIEWED BY JENN3.5 STARSI could not wait to get my hands on Perky and Parker's story. You learn a lot about them in Mallory and Will's book, Fluffy. While Perky could be read as a standalone, I did feel like a lot of their backstory came from Fluffy and I might have been a little lost at the start had I not had that back story. I thoroughly enjoyed the friendship between Mallory, Perky, and Fiona. Those girls know how to have a good time. My on...
  • Amber
    Perky is a hilariously addictive thrill ride of the heart. Just when you think you have things figured out, here comes another twist in our lovely story that throws things into disarray. I savored every minute of watching these characters come to terms with their real feelings while being a helping hand and open heart for each other. Nothing is as powerful or as beautiful as a true friend. However, in the end, the only person who can truly pick o...
  • Alicia
    With Julia Kent's usual sure hand for comedy and character development, Perky is a fabulous, fun and completely entertaining read. While there is great milage to be had from Persephone's ascerbic wit and the bond between our three diverse heroines, this book is also thoughtful about relationships and the dangers inherent in believing the worst of another. When you have been deeply hurt it takes a lot to turn that Titanic feeling around and accept...
  • Amber - TBR Book Blog
    Perky’s story was everything I didn’t know I needed. After reading Fluffy, I was given a hint about Perky but I had NO idea until I read her story. This is the 2nd book in the series and you really should read book 1. If not just to get a great warmup to Perky’s story. And just like Fluffy, Perky leads you into Fiona’s story and makes you SOOOOO ready for it! Just expect a LOT of laughs (sometimes ill-timed since I was at work).Julia Kent...

    If you are looking for a laugh out loud, swoony, and a tale of forgiveness on an epic scale look no further than this new release by Julia Kent.We were briefly introduced to Perky (Persephone to some) in Fluffy, but don't worry you can totally read this as a stand alone! The awful, embarrassing and tragic event that happened to Perky five years ago has really shaped her into the gal she is now.  She is stubborn in her mind set of who to blame ...
  • Isha Coleman
    Revenge shouldn't be this adorable. Julia Kent takes an awkward situation and finds humor and heart. Perky takes a look at the bright side of a darkly, embarrassing situation. One bad choice, five years ago has come back to haunt Perky and she blames her ex, Parker. Careers may have changed, hearts have obviously been broken, but the attraction is still there. Can a bad decision and an embarrassing meme, be the second chance these two have been w...
  • Lori Dunn
    If it's by Julia Kent it's gonna be good. It will be funny , sexy and sweet. Can't wait to get my hands on Perky.
  • Jan
    Another brilliant rom-com from Julia Kent, these characters are contagious, I laughed so many times, a mood up-lifter for sure. Quirky characters, three women who each in their own way are oddballs. I read fluffy, loved it and this is the second book in the series featuring Mallory's best friend Perky in a second chance romance with Parker. Perky is full of laugh out loud moments, hot moments, embarrassing moments, witty characters sisterhood and...
  • Erin Lewis
    5 star review Perky by Julia Kent  Julia Kent never fails to deliver; whenever I see her name I know that I am in for a fabulous read. As with previous books I have read I was in stitches having laughed so much I cried. That’s right, not only laughing but snort laughing, totally unattractive I assure you and the looks I got from my fellow commuters just made me laugh even harder. Julia Kent is one of my go to authors in the romantic comedy ge...
  • Shelley
    Perky is the second book in a series of three best friends and their men. It can be read as a standalone book, though Will and Mallory are in this book and I do recommended their story, Fluffy.Persephone and Parker met at Oxford. It was true love and they were together all the time. She followed him to his job in Texas. One day post sex, he wanted a photo. He'd be the only one to see it, right? How was she to know her post sex glow and naked brea...
  • Kelly Mentzer
    I love this series about these three free spirited best friends and how they handle having love crash full force into their lives. This is book two and Perky's story.Revenge can be bittersweet and it can be all encompassing when planning or plotting to get even. Anger, hurt and resentment can stop one from moving forward in ones life. These are all strong emotions and if anyone deserves to own these emotions, it is Perky. Five years ago, her old ...
  • Sue
    What happens when the man you love betrays you in the worst of ways? Perky (or Persephone as she was when we first met her in Fluffy) is quirky...but in the best of ways. She is Mallory's best friend (along with Fiona) but she has her issues. Mainly being the butt of a joke that wasn't a joke. Despite everything she has done in the last 5 years to erase the pain, it is constantly with her and the meme that started it all still floats around in so...
  • Jackie Wright
    Once again Julia Kent has delivered a read that had me in stitches, I laughed out loud or should I say snorted out loud and one bit advice I need to give you is don’t read Perky while eating or drinking because you risk covering anyone sitting close by with what’s in your mouth......Perky follows on from Fluffy which is a series of second chance romances and I have to say so far this is one of the best series of romantic comedy’s of this ye...
  • Amy Crull
    This book was hysterical. I laughed so hard, so many times throughout the entire book! Parker, Persephone(Perky) and their friends make this book. Parker and Persephone was in a relationship until a private personal picture became a meme and ruined Persephone. She blamed Parker and blocked him from her life. As fate would play out, he is back in her life and won't go away. He is bound determined to prove his innocence and that he's still in love ...
  • Sandi Ramirez
    I have been waiting for Persephone or Perky's story since I read the first book Fluffy and met this wonderful group of gals. (Yes I want to know each friend in depth but Perky calls out to me.) Perky and her boyfriend did something so many other folks have been guilty of doing, they took a naughty photo of themselves back when they were dating. The photo got out, let's say part of the photo got out ...way out all over the net and it was the end o...
