Left to Love was the much-anticipated sequel to The Next Door Boys. I really loved The Next Door Boys and was so happy to find out she was writing a sequel after I finished it. I received it from NetGalley and it was one of my first reviews when I started blogging. I have loved every one of Jolene Perry’s books since then; she has not disappointed me yet.
She is a fantastic new author that has definitely caught my attention. There are not many young adult authors that write about difficult situations such as cancer and abuse. I have said this in past reviews also, but it is very true and she does it very well. I keep comparing her books to my favorite author's Lurlene McDaniel, and that is pretty high praise for me. I had been looking for more books like hers and couldn’t seem to find anything close enough to what I was looking for until I requested The Next Door Boys from NetGalley. I am so glad I did because I found an author I really love.
Left to Love was really good and did a great job pulling at my heart and then breaking it. This type of story isn’t for everyone, but I love reading these types of stories. Yeah, I’m odd, I know, but hey, the books sell, so it can’t only be me. I’m glad the author wrote more to Leigh and Brian’s story and we got to see them married and have their forever. In most stories, you have the romance, but who knows what happens after the book ends? Do they get married? Do they end up falling out of love? I loved having that answer and also seeing them work though something incredibly difficult, which made them only love each other more in the end.
I look forward to reading more of Jolene Perry’s work and am excited to see what she writes about next.
