I'm currently working on Something Amazing. It's a spin-off to Something Great. The prologue sample is on the back of Something Forever. I can't wait for you to meet Rachel, Becky's sister and few new characters. Mark it to read and keep your eyes out for pre-order. Thank you so much! Release date January 12, 2015. Also, My Clarity spin-off coming soon, My Serenity, 2015, after Something Amazing. You can read the prologue in the back of Something Forever.

I think it’s interesting how life brings us exactly what we need and usually it’s when we least expect it. We aren’t always prepared to receive these blessings due to bad timing, personal insecurities, dark secrets, etc. No matter how hard we fight against it, things that are meant to be will never leave your heart or mind the same again. They will latch onto your soul as they slowly become a part of your life whether you want them to or not. Time apart only brings with it fear, anxiety, questio ...more

I love this spin-off of the Something Great series. It is a stand alone novel but you will want to read the series when you're done. I love M. Clarke's books because they instill the message to women to not settle and that they deserve that someone special someone.

Rachel is distraught because she has broken up with her boyfriend and not sure if she has done the right thing. Her sister Becky assures her she'll be fine and to go enjoy her vacation and meet some hot surfers.

4 turtle stars. When you read this story you'll understand why I picked "turtle stars" but until then you'll be left wondering why I did. The story has an element of mystery surrounding Jackson Clark and it really had me guessing until it was revealed. This is the first book in the series but can actually be read as a standalone if you don't want to continue in this world because there's kind of a happy ending wrap up.

Ah, Jackson Clark is beautiful and incredible. He's charming, in your face, c

After a summers storm when the clouds have cleared we all can look upon the night sky and just see so many stars that we can imagine just about anything. But when we look closer and see groups of stars can that be our destiny? Can we see our soul mate upon the nights sky? This is their journey.

This is the story of Rachael, Becky's sister.
Rachael is similar to Becky's in a few ways. Yet totally her own person.
I was hooked on this book front the start, and not just because it was part of the "Something Great" series, but because it was a great story. Ms. Clarke writes a great story and has you feeling just what the characters are feeling.
I was wishing I was with Jax many times, and jealous of Rachael. But they had their ups and downs, as well. Because it can't be Happily Ever After wit

I have read all of Mary's books and I was given this one as an ARC to give an honest review. I love all of her work, she's an amazing author and she definitely delivered with this one! All of the Something Great novels have these sweet love stories with the perfect mix of tension and hotness that I just can't get enough of and this was one of them. I definitely recommend this book!

I loved this book! This is an amazing series that I have thoroughly enjoy. This series is full of drama, angst, steam and a ton of sexy times. And this book was no different. This book did well at building the chemistry between Rachel and Jackson was combustible at times. This book also had a few twists I did not see coming. It had me racing to flip the pages and swooning by the end.

This is Jackson "Jax" and Rachel's story. Rachel has just broken up with her boyfriend of two years. The l

I wasn't sure what to expect with this spin-off story from the Something Great series, but I have to admit I liked it.

When she get to Kauai with her best friend, she finds herself fallen for the charms of Jackson Clark. She tries to convince herself that she's only having an island fling with Jackson and that they are just friends

Something Amazing can be read as a stand alone. Rachel Thomas needs a vacation and where better than off to Kauai with her best friend Stacey. Of course her brother in law Matthew told her where to stay since he has connections everywhere. In Kauai, Rachel meets hunky heartthrob Jackson. Rachel is not one to have a fling, but Jackson is just so dreamy that it's hard to forget about him. It also doesn't help that he shows up at all the places she visits and doesn't take no for an answer. They dec ...more

Something Amazing was just that….AMAZING! As a spin off of the Something Great Series it can be read as a stand alone. I really enjoyed the first 3 books but this….this one is my new favorite! Jax and Rachel hold a special place in my heart now!

Rachel is recovering from a break up, taking a vacation to relax and get away from it all. I don’t think that she expected to meet Jax….he was sweet, caring, and a little arrogant (in a schmexy way of course). What started out as a holy-hell-hot beach sid

I liked the theme in Something Amazing where you shouldn't settle for second best and not to compromise. My favorite characters from the original series is of course Matt & Becky. Every time Matt appeared in the book, it made me giggle and blush. He is so naughty. Because of how I feel about the strong characters like these two, I was a little bit wary when I first started reading the spin-off. However, these characters tying in with the new ones were done well. Keep in mind that this spin o ...more

This was my first M. Clarke book and it was terrific. Jax and Rachel meet while on vacation and following a break up. Rachel does her best to resist Jax and his charms but the attraction is just too much. After realizing that they want to be with one another for more than a few nights of fun, Rachel learns of some secrets that Jax has been hiding. She has to decide does she want the package

Review originally posted at Ramblings From This Chick

Something Amazing by M. Clarke is a spin-off of her Something Great series, but it can be read as a standalone with interconnected characters. I have really enjoyed this series, so I was excited to see another book coming out. While it was nice to see familiar faces, I really loved Jax and Rachel's story and it might even be my favorite of them all. This one was really great, and I loved how sweet it was.

Relationships aren’t always easy, especially long distance ones. After Rachel breaks up with her boyfriend and being offered a once in a life time job for Knight Magazine as a photographer, she has a lot to think about. She and her best friend Stacey decide to take a trip to Kauai. A last minute trip is the perfect way to help clear her mind and give her clarity and to let loose and have some fun. She wants what her sister Becky and her fiancé Matthew have. She wants that all-consuming love.

After breaking up with her boyfriend of two years, Rachel Miller wants to get away. Fortuitously, she is able to go on vacation to Kauai, where not surprisingly, she meets someone. Jax is the brother of a family friend and from the moment Rachel sees him, she is attracted to him.

When I first began this book, I thought I had an idea of where it was going: girl ends relationship; girl meets boy; girl's attracted to boy; they have a fling; it turns into love; happily ever after, the end.

Jax is officially on my BBF list. He’s melt your panties right off hot! He’s confident and cocky but with just the right about of sweet and caring to make you fall in love with him. Despite knowing that a relationship between himself and Rachel would be a huge struggle, I loved the fact that he started to accept his
