Giveaway/Review: Something Great by M. Clarke

Title: Something Great 
Author: M. Clarke 
Genre: New Adult, Contemporary Romance 
Tour Host: Lady Amber's Tours 

*** 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?

I liked the overall plot of this book. I did think it missed it's mark for me in several instances. So I am going to start with where it missed for me and move onto the definite positives. 

One of the problems I had was that some of the phrases he used didn't really feel like a grown man would say those things. It threw me off a little bit. Also, I feel like their relationship needed some more depth. 

If you start this book, don't expect him to be a Christian or a Gideon. He is not really much of an alpha male, he's a more average male. Some of the things he did was sweet, like giving her a rice crispy shaped like a heart. There were times I really liked Max. 

Overall, the story was an easy and fast read. This did keep me entertained, and shows definite potential. I will check out more books by her in the future.

Rating: 3 out of 5

Too busy looking at the polished white floor, I hadn’t realized it was a two story building. My eyes first followed the stairs and then up to my right, then…. Wow…he made me breathless, making time stand still by locking his eyes to mine with that smile he did so well. His expression said it all, calling out for me, and I was responding with my eyes. Wearing a black tuxedo and a crimson tie to match my dress, his body was leaning forward to rest his elbows on the banister, and he looked ever so debonair. I had simply died and gone to heaven.

Spellbound by him, my heart was shown no mercy as it thumped rapidly against my chest. Intensely setting his eyes on mine, his stride toward me was graceful, steady, yet powerful, and dangerous, like a predator setting on its prey. I was immobilized, and he was going to have me for dinner. Oh God! He was coming for me. a Rafflecopter giveaway
