My thoughts after reading...
This book is the second installment of Something Great. The story has four p.o.v's---Jenna's, Max's, Matthew's and Becky's... Honestly, I got kinda worried when I learned there'll be multiple p.o.v's... I'm usually used to only two--just from both the female & male protagonist. I don't know how the author did it without confusing the reader. Some authors confuse the hell out of me even with only two p.o.v's....but surprisingly, this one works! Rockin' some

I have to say Mary Ting does it again! Something Wonderful is even better than Something Great! If possible I would give it a 10 star rating. This is the second book in the series that follows the brothers Max and Matthew Knight. In Something Wonderful you will read more of Max and Jenna's story you get introduced to in Something Great.

In my opinion, the real star of Something Wonderful is Matthew Knight. He is fun, flirty, and smoking hot but it is his heart that draws me the most. You will see

GAHHH!!!! firstly and most importantly I want to say how very proud of this woman I am! I could not find one thing wrong with this book and it was soooo much better than the first book! way to go Moon, you deserve a round of applause. It was amazing! I loved the dual POV. We got Jenna and Max's story and we got Becky and Matthew! in the start we learn both Becky and Matthew have had heart break and are semi broken. 2 years later and they're trying to pick up the pieces of their life and move on. ...more

Just when I was sure that the extraordinary story in Something Great couldn’t possibly get any better, here comes Something Wonderful rushing in behind it to completely obliterate that careless thought. I am left speechless and breathless in the wake of this sweeping and staggering romance that will shatter your finest daydreams and leave them envious of the passion and exquisiteness found within the pages of this tour de force.

Becky and Jenna have been roommates since college. They have been le

OK this is going to be a hard one to right because I had so many feelings! It was an emotional and sexy read one that made me FEEL so much. I loved how Clarke seem to put her ALL into this book making me feel each and every feeling of these character! I LOVED IT! Brothers and sexy amazing ones at that what more could you ask for! Something Wonderful is a page turning sexy read, you will not want to put it down for a second because you might miss out on something the Knight brothers will do!

"In the darkest times, when your trust is tested, love will conquer all. Something Wonderful gives us two stories of love, passion, and the ability to save someone who was once broken."

Something Wonderful starts right where Something Great left off. We get more then Jenna and Max's point of view in this one, we also get Mathew and Becky's. It starts off with quite a sad prologue! I cried during Mathew's. So sad. I can't imagine going through that. After Jenna's accident she seems a little differ

M. Clarke has done it once again! Something Wonderful is an amazing follow up to Something Great. Not only do we have we get to see how Max and Jeanella are doing, but we also get to see Max's yummy brother, Matt as struggles with and accepts his feelings for Becky.

The way M. Clarke intertwined the two love stories makes for a very difficult to put down read and what made it really shine in a market with so many NA reads. We get to see how Jeanella's youthful innocence impacts her relationship

I received an ARC for an honest review.

Something Wonderful follows up Something Great beautifully!!

It is so Wonderful to hear this story told from the points of view of Jenna and her love, Max. We also hear the story from Becky, Jenna's best friend (who is slow to admit to her love), and Matt (who is Max's brother).

The dance of love between each couple couldn't be more different. They each have their own challenges to overcome, but once the obstacles are removed, it is wonderful to see them both

"Sometimes life was cruel and fate did things not in your favor."

A women from Max's past is suing Max for sexual harassment in the work place. For a while things were kept hidden until Jenna stumbled across two people talking about him. Makes her wonder what else he is keeping from her.

"You can't allow his past to get in the way of the future. Sometimes falling in love means letting go to the past. His past is the past."

Really enjoyed the story. It was different because it had four character POVs - Max and Jenna and Matthew and Becky (Becca, as Matthew called her). I love how Matthew and Becky lives were interconnected. I can see great potential for that connection later. Max and Jenna were super sweet and lovey dovey. Jenna made me want to throat punch her when Max's situation came up. I just wanted to scream at her, "Put your big girl panties on already." But, Clarke did an amazing job with the story.

Mary has done it again with this sequel to Something Great! I find myself continuously amazed by the stories Mary creates and how realistic the relationships in these books are. I loved seeing the relationship between Becky and Matthew being built and the evolution of Jenna and Max's relationship. My heart wrenched with all the pain Matthew went through trying to get over his fiancée that died and the guilt he felt when he started having feelings for Becky. All in all this was just as great, if ...more

We first met Jenna and Max in Something Great. Something Wonderful is a continuation of their story, but it also includes the budding romance between Matthew and Becky, Max’s brother and Jenna’s roommate. The pairing up might not be a unique concept, but M. Clarke delivers on this one book/multi love story plot with perfection.

For me, Something Wonderful is all about Jenna and Max. I was more interested in these two as the “Something” series started with them. In Something Wonderf

Everyone BEWARE...This is book was AWESOME..

I first came across this author Mary Ting in reading the book Something Great book I fell in love with Max and Jenna. I could not wait for Something Wonderful to come out. I am avid on Facebook. So when the teasers came out I had to so stay away from them. I felt I had waited so long for the book that a teaser would just ruin the book for me and I must say that I am totally happy with staying away from the teasers.

Jenna and Max are awesome in this book

Something Wonderful is even better then the first, if that is possible! Sexy, steamy, heart-breaking, and just simply Something Wonderful!!! It not only has the sexy chemistry from Max and Jenna but also Max's younger playful brother Matthew and Jenna's best-friend Becky!

This book is from 4 POVs Max, Jenna, Matthew, and Becky. This book takes place right where Something Great left off. You get the amazing prologue from Matthew which is so heart wrenching about everything he has been through. You

Something Wonderful heats up the series with its undeniable need…want…passion…incredible characters and intense heated plot. New Adult at its BEST!

Jenna and Max’s relationship continues in Something Wonderful with Max taking care of Jenna after her accident. He is being very over protective of her. Becky and Matt start running into each other A LOT, and both can’t deny the attraction, but neither do anything about it. Although Matt has his way of flirting that leaves Becky, aka Becca, hot and bo

I was given and ARC copy for an honest review.

Something Wonderful is such an appropriate title for this book. That's exactly what it is!

"Be mine, because I want to be yours. I want to give you forever." It doesn't get much better than that. Max and Jenna's faith, trust and love is tested in this sequel to Something Great. You find yourself rooting for them and feeling all the ups and downs of their relationship. I could not read this book fast enough to see what happened next.

I absolutely fell in love with Jenna and Max in the first book. This is a continuation of their 1. First off, Jenna and Max are working through the misunderstanding that is Crystal. She plays a significant role because she has decided to sue Max for sexual harassment/assault, etc. while Max is going through this, Crystal has (multiple times) confronted Jenna. Why wouldn't Jenna tell the lawyer about these incidents to build up their case? And I felt a little let down by the results ...more

Wow, this story just gets better and better.
This time around we got 2 stories,more of Jenna and Max but we got lots of Becky as well.
Jenna and Max definitely have a roller coaster ride in this book. Jenna becomes more open. Becky is my favorite, I love how she just blurts out whatever is on her mind and her sassiness!
I did get a little worried for both couples in this book though, but I knew I would get at least one HEA.
I loved how Jenna blossomed in this book.

The story continuous with Jenna and Max and Becky and Matthew. I can't say enough how much I loved book 2. The author expands as a writer. She even told me that she is more like Jenna so when writing about Becky, she had to come out of her comfort zone. Well... let me just say that M. Clarke...You did a fantastic job. This book is full of love, passion, friendship, even some twist and turns. I love Jenna's new side and how the story come together. Another fantasti

You will LOVE Something Wonderful. Jenna becomes stronger. I love how she progresses throughout the story. I also enjoyed reading about their friendship. Becky and Matthew, made me laugh, cry, and I wanted to root for them from the beginning. And wow...the prologue gave me goose bumps. It gave a good background where Becky and Matthew were coming from. You will NOT be fact...I believe you will LOVE Something Wonder

The title says it's so fitting for this book! It truly is Something Wonderful! After reading Something Great I knew this series would continue to bring us the awesome, & I can assure you it does just that. We're taken captive in a whirlwind of emotions flying around while we grip each page hoping it's not the last. And then....the cliffhanger!!!! Aaaaaaargh!!! I needed Something Forever like yesterday! The waiting is not going to be fun, but it will totally be worth it.

The prologue gripped me from the start. After that, I was rooting for Becky and Matthew. And Max was still hot and romantic as always. I also loved the new Jenna. Something Wonderful is truly wonderful...about friendship, loss, love and hope. M.Clarke did it again!!!

Love the line......... From Becca, who reviews books to be published!

Readers read books to help them escape from the daily routine of life. Many of these romance nooks have a swoon-worthy, gorgeous guy with really nice abs and a six pack who can deliver wild, hot sex.

Meh...think I've read too many stories like this one.
I don't mind reading the same plot as long as the author can put a new spin on it or make it more interesting that the others but this was just run of the mill guy meets girl.

The story of Jenna and Max continues!

I can't stop reading. Book 2 continues where one left off, but we get to learn more about the characters and the dynamics between Jenna and Max. It is just the right amount of anguish mixed with smoking hotness. Definitely a great read.
