Review #318: Something Great- M. Clarke

Title: Something Great
Author: M. Clarke
Series: Something Great #1
Rating: 4.5 Stars
Summary: * This is a New Adult romance novel recommended for ages 18+ due to sexual content and mature subject matter.
She didn’t know what she was missing…until he found her.
Maxwell Knight was positively trouble, dangerously good-looking, and seductively charming. He was everything Jeanella didn’t need in her life. Only Maxwell didn’t see it that way. His pursuit was relentless, making her even more determined to push him away.
Fresh out of college, life was simple and plain for Jeanella Mefferd. Every part of her life was smooth sailing; her friends, her job, and even the guy she’d started dating. Then one night, while at dinner, she spotted someone who made her feel things she’d never felt before—dangerous, heart pounding and breathless heat. Thinking she would never see him again, she brushed it off, but when she started to run into him unexpectedly, all she could think of was how he made her feel with his sweet flirtations. Everything about Maxwell Knight screamed trouble, especially when she found out he was her new boss’s son. Now, heading to a New York fashion show, would she be able to focus on her career instead of Maxwell, who had been scheduled to attend with her? As much as she tried to forget their encounters, his good looks, smooth words and determination to win her over gravitated her toward him. The next thing she knew, her mind was utterly consumed by him. Would she be willing to ignore all the dangerous signs and jump into his arms? Or would she miss out on the chance of finding something great?
Review: I received this book free from the author in exchange for an honest review.
Right from the get go this was a sexy book. The sexual tension had me all riled up. And Max OMG!!! Can I have him?? Even if I can just borrow him for a bit.... The only reason that this book wasn't a perfect 5 stars was because the storyline was a bit predictable. Something Great was on the shorter side, but I flew through it and would have regardless of the size. 
As I previously stated I really like Max lol. Jenna is a strong (well I guess not all the time, sometimes she is fragile) and independent woman and I love how sassy she is. I would love to get Matthew's story and also if him and Becky are going to work out.
I really loved this novel. The characters were the cherry on top. Plus the bonus story was excellent. I would recommend this to NA contemporary lovers.

M. Clarke aka Mary Ting resides in Southern California with her husband and two children. She enjoys oil painting and making jewelry. Writing her first novel, Crossroads Saga, happened by chance. It was a way to grieve the death of her beloved grandmother, and inspired by a dream she once had as a young girl. When she started reading new adult novels, she fell in love with the genre. It was the reason she had to write one-Something Great. Why the pen name, M Clarke? She tours with Magic Johnson Foundation to promote literacy and her children’s chapter book-No Bullies Allowed.
