Nobody ever said life was easy...

People pleaser, Jane Skylar wants nothing more than to earn her art degree, start her life, and bask in the bliss of living with her boyfriend.

But things don't always go as planned...

Struggling with her creative side, Jane finds herself in turmoil, often confiding in her roommate - another, more talented art student, Keith Hale. Keith just so happens to be her boyfriend's older, brooding brother. After a devastating breakup, Jane turns to Keith for comfort. But when the lines blur between roommate and lover, Jane's life becomes more complicated than ever before.

When Keith's past comes back to haunt him, their lives all get turned upside down, forcing the truth to surface. Now Jane must fight for what she wants--even if it hurts everyone she loves.
What Readers Are Saying
"This book has such an intensity... The pace is feeling so real. The intensity of this novel reaches that of a Colleen Hoover, and the depth that of a L.A. Fiore’s one. If this is really a debut novel – I am just speechless – and I volunteer as first member of her fan club." Jeri's Book Attic
"I LOVED this book. I honestly think it's up there as one of my favourite YA novels of all time. The plot throughout had me hooked so much that I didn't want to put it down. Painting Sky was an outstanding read. I literally loved everything about it. It will take you on a rollercoaster ride of emotions that you will never want to get off." Amy Rush Da Silva
"This book had me hooked from the get-go. The words on the pages just sucked me in and I didn't want to take a break from reading because I was so into it. Readers will be taken on an emotional rollercoaster with the characters but in a way that they won't ever feel cheated in the end." Elle ✦ Pretty Little Books ✦
