Jax and Rachel's journey started long before Something Precious. And I have followed it every step of the way. This is probably one of the most frustrating installments in their journey so far. One minute I'm crying the next I'm laughing. One minute I think I know what's happening but, yeah, not so much ...

I won't lie and tell you that I loved the story-line, because I didn't, but I appreciated it. It was WAY too close to real life for my taste LOL All the frustration and trust issues and just

What can I say about this book? It brought out so many emotions for me. One minute I was so wrapped up in the love they shared and next I wanted to punch a B***H! I swear, Jax’s ex is vindictive and crazy. They ideas she comes with are just plan insane but it’s also someone who is desperate to hang on despise the face that it’s over. Enough about her, let’s discuss Rachel… First off, there’s a huge part of me that wants her job. I mean she gets to pho

For some of us, we know how hard it is being in a relationship, there are ups and downs. It is even harder when there are kids involved and especially hard when the ex/parent is involved as well.
For Rachel, things are going great. She has found the man of her dreams. She adores his son, Jace as if he were her own. All she wants is for all of them to be happy and start their lives together without of the drama that comes along with Jax’s ex/ Jace’s mom.
Things seem to be going well until Chloe wo

Thank you so very much for letting me read this ARC Mary Ting! I appreciate the amazing opportunity to get the chance to dive face first back into the enchanting Knight Magazine world.

After reading book one in Something Amazing, I wanted more Jax. I was having such a crush! Jax was such a wonderful hunk in Something Amazing! I fell in love. In book one I saw Jax grow from an indecisive single father who wanted his love life to be in balance to a wonderful man in Something Precious any woman woul

Yet another wonderful read from one of my favourite authors. Something Precious had me shouting at my iPad and then racing to the bathroom to grab a bunch of tissues to soak up the tears so I could continue reading. Once you start this book, you won't be able to put it down.

Something Precious is by far the most moving, the most passionate, and the most stunning of her “Something” series books. The writing and the intensity level has only continued to increase with each book until you can no longer deny just how beautiful and magnificent this entire series has become! This story is nothing less than a masterpiece truly written by a brilliant artist. If you enjoy your stories with more heart and soul then you know what to do with, then this is one series that you can ...more

I was given this book for my honest review by the author

I never knew what happiness was until I met Rachel, the kind of happiness that wrapped around my heart like the warmest blanket and I didn’t want to let go. What I loved about her most was her kind heart. She took everything I had to offer, even a little boy that wasn’t her own. What person did that? Not many. Jax

An amazing conclusion to a story that will have your heart mekting, crying and jumping up for joy. Jax and Rachel are getting married! They have moved in together and are planning their lives, everything is perfect! Well if that were the case then this book wouldn't be as amazing as it is. Yes, they have a struggle, TRUST and her name is Chloe.

Something Precious is the sequel to Something Amazing by M. Clarke. This series is a spin-off from her Something Great series and while you do not need to have read the Something Great series to enjoy Something Precious, you do need to have read Something Amazing as it picks up after that book and follows the same characters. I was so excited when I found out that Jax, Jace and Rachel were getting another book! These are some of my favorite c

Jealousy and Drama..

Rachel, the main female lead, and Jax, the male lead, are engaged and living together.

Then re enters Chloe with more drama. You guessed it, she is pregnant.

Rachel's is wondering about the baby's father while she gets a visit from a long lost "friend".

Add in some pressure from Jax wanting to extend their family before marriage and this book turns into of a fast pace read or listen.

There was plenty of drama, almost too much for me and almost gave me "whip lash".

This is the second book in the Something Amazing series and they must be read in order; they are a spin-off of the Something Great Series which I haven’t read. This book picks up about a year after the first one ends. Rachel and Jax are engaged and living together. Chloe has been out of their lives since Jax paid her off. They are set to get married in just a few months and everything is pretty much set. Then Chloe decides she wants to see Jace again. Jax is cautious at first but he doesn’t want ...more

I didn't want to read this one...I have major issues reading books with cheating or love triangles. With both the ex of the Hero & and old crush from the Heroine turning up in this book I already had angst before I read the first page. But it worked in this book. I really saw the struggles they had to go through to come out to where they needed to be. Some of the things I say next can kind of be spoilers...but very mild ones...I didn't give away the big WHOPPER climax of the book.

Something Precious by M. Clarke is a contemporary romance. It is part of two series; I’m not familiar with either series, and I had no difficulty jumping right into Something Precious.

Set in Los Angeles, Something Precious continues the story of Jax and Rachel, and the story is told from both their points of view.. Both work in the fashion industry, one as a model, and the other as a photographer.

Jax is the model. He is also a model dad. He tries to be a model fiance, but doesn’t always succee

I loved Something Amazing and I loved Something Precious just as much...I’m determined to go back and read the rest of the Something Great series now because these characters have really endeared themselves into my heart and soul and I can’t get enough of them.

Jax & Rachel are engaged and happily planning a wedding and enjoying their time as a new family. Of course, Chloe - Jax’s ex - couldn't just let that happen. Drama ensues and battles are fought, but the strength of so

Well, right off the bat... I just loved Jax and Rachel's story. Something Precious is the second book in a spin-off series from the Something Great trilogy which was also an amazing series that I absolutely fell in love with. For me, it was an incredibly addicting modern fairy tale romance with a noticeable difference...the female leads are strong women. No damsels in distress...well, maybe in some other subtle way.

I had already fallen in love with Jax and Rachel's story in Something Amazing, but reading Something Precious has taken it to a whole new level.

After reading Something Amazing I was a bit sad and felt like there was so much more to their story and I wanted to know it ALL.

Leave it to Mary to deliver once again!

Reading Something Precious left me all giddy and feeling like "all is right with the world". This time I was completely satisfie

SOMETHING PRECIOUS by M. Clarke was an amazing read, read it one sitting it was that good.

The story in this book sucked me right in, having said that I had just finished reading book one and dove right into SOMETHING PRECIOUS, I was so excited to read the conclusion of Jackson and Rachel's story. Rachel and Jackson have such amazing chemistry, you can tell they are meant to be togehter, but at every turn something tears them apart, I flipped every page hoping that something was going to go righ

I received this book as an ARC for an honest review.

In this book we are back with Jax and Rachel. You would think after all they went through in Something Amazing that it would be all smooth sailing for these two but that is just not the case. With Rachel now becoming an up an coming photographer the demand for her talents are becoming more and more. She also wants to be an amazing step-mother to Jace, Jax is talking about wanting her to get pregnant soon after they married, and of course Chloe

A Sultry romance with vindictive drama, this series just gets better with intense emotions!

When you fall for characters, and just can't get enough, you just hope and pray to the "word" gods that the author never stops. One thing about this series, you feel that connection with the characters...they feel my head they are real. And I love how all the characters are connected in one way, and past favorites keep showing an appearance in each story.

I'm sure I have said it before, but I'll say it again, there isn't a book this author could write that I wouldn't absolutely LOVE!

Jax and Rachel are finally engaged, starting their lives together as a family in LA. All is perfect until Chloe shows back up, wanting to see her son again. Jax wants the best for Jace, so he feels like he can't say no. Of course the manipulative Chloe has an agenda, she wants Jax back and will stop at nothing to make that happen.

Something Precious was a great 5 star read.

Rachel is a fashion photographer and is engaged to Jax a hot model. These two definitely have quite a bit to deal with in their relationship. Jax has a son with his ex Chloe and she is very jealous of Rachel. Will she be able to get between these two?
Rachel also has some challenges of her own when someone from her past makes an appearance. Can she resist an old crush?

Something Precious by M. Clarke is a continuation of Jax and Rachel's story from Something Amazing. The bittersweet of what happens after the happily ever after when real life begins.

Jax and Rachel are three months away from their wedding, Jace is happy as a clam (or a ninja turtle) and things are going great. Then Jace's mom/Jax's ex-wife Chloe pops back up in the picture attempting to be a "mom" to their son all the while scheming to get Jax back. The Rachel goes to New York Fashion Week to wo

Yet another grand slam from author M. Clarke.

I had the honor of reading Something Precious in return for an honest review.

I fell in love with all of M. Clarke's books and have been following her for quite a while now, and I must say I'm impressed. I love her writing style, and her ability to grab your attention from the very first line and not let you go till the bitter end.

This book is a roller coster of a ride for you emotions, we see the characters fall in love and see them suffer heartache.

Welcome back to the Fashion world, that is all I that k need to say about Something Precious, the next instalment in M Clarke's Knight series this sequel to Something Amazing picks up Rachel and Jax's story. Be warned Something precious should not be read as a standalone if you have brought this book and not read Something Amazing, stop, turn around, and go back to the book store/website wherever you got your copy of SP and pick up SA and purchase it.

This book is relentless in its pursuit of drama.
But I suppose that is to be expected as the series so far has been one that has encompassed almost every emotion known to man!
Jax and Rachel are not a couple that leave anything behind, they lay their hearts on the line and because of that I have come to look forward to each new instalment of their journey.
But this book, gave me a different vibe, it had an aura of reticence about it and that put the fear of god in me, I just didn’t know if I woul

Something Precious is a continuation of Rachel and Jax's story. I just thought they were through all of their trials and tribulations. M. Clarke has written for them more drama and tests to try their love. These new hurdles are harder than those in the first book because if they fail hearts will be beyond shattered. Not even the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles could save them. The way M. Clarke wrote this book I could see the road blocks coming up ahead. I could see the barriers looming. The danger ...more
