Review: "Something Great" by M. Clarke

Oggi vi parlerò di una romance new adult che ho letto nelle ultime settimane sotto consiglio di Please Another Book. Anncleire l’aveva letto in anteprima (trovate la sua recensione qui) e, a qualche mese di distanza, anche io mi ritrovo a dare un giudizio più che positivo a questo romanzo. E’ previsto già un seguito, “Something Wonderful” che uscirà il 10 Febbraio 2014!

Purtroppo questo libro è disponibile solo in inglese.

Ho ricevuto una copia di questo libro dall’autrice in cambio di un’onesta opinione.

Today I’ll talk about a new adult romance I’ve read in recent weeks under the advice of Please Another Book. Anncleire had read before the release (find her review here) and, after a few months, I also find myself give a more than positive rating to this novel. It is already planned a sequel, “Something Wonderful” which will be released February 10, 2014!
Unfortunately, this book is available in English only.

I received a copy of this book from the author in exchange for an honest opinion.

Title: Something Great
Author: M. Clarke (aka Mary Ting)
Date of Publication: July 24th 2013
Genre: NA Romance

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?

In italiano (di Please Another Book)


With a simple and ordinary life behind, but big problems towards the male gender, Jaenella decides to aspire to something more. Starting from changing her work, she will eventually also change her convictions about love.
But fate is already in its way, because she meets Maxwell, or better she still struck by this fascinating man, while she is having dinner, of which she knows nothing, and that makes her experience things she never felt before. And when she finds out that Maxwell is none other than the son of her new boss and a co-worker, Jaenella will have to do a lot to resist his charm and his court.

Jaenella is not the usual ordinary girl from romance books: she has suffered in the past because of the betrayal of her ex boyfriend and especially she has almost decided not to risk more in love. She attended some guy, but definitely goes with leaden feet. And although the overall picture is of an ordinary girl, now “turned off” by the passion for anything in her life, she herself choose to change her work in search of something more stimulating. Her relationship with Maxwell is from the start “explosive”, their chemistry is very strong, but this huge attraction may be enough to win Jaenella’s beliefs?

Sometimes it can happen that the story falls into a cliché, something already seen or read, but I must say that I still enjoyed this book very much. “Something Great” is an enjoyable read, which tells a sexy and exciting love story.
