Review: Something Great by M. Clarke

Title: Something Great
By: M. Clarke
My Copy: Ebook from Author
Book Whisperer's Rating: 

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 so badly wanted to like this book a lot but I just didn’t get sucked into as I hoped I would.  It was hard for me to connect with the characters and to see the connection between Jenna and Max.  Max sees Jenna one day and just instantly falls for her.  She has done nothing at all to make him fall in love with her besides just existing and I couldn’t quite grasp that reasoning of head over heels in love.  Unless it was the fact that all she did was constantly giggle, trip, and make a fool out of herself. 

Jenna and Max were very childish in ways that I didn’t get.  She is allergic to alcohol but while on a business trip she gets jealous and starts to drink, only to end up turning bright red.  Instead of taking Jenna to receive medical attention, Max takes her to the men’s restroom and sits her on the floor where they start flirting with each other…she is having an allergic reaction, DON’T FLIRT, SEEK HELP!

Anyways, this book wasn’t for me but I am sure others will really enjoy it.
