Overview

* This is a New Adult romance novel recommended for ages 18+ due to sexual content and mature subject matter.

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 was given this book from the author for an honest review and from the very start was told that it was an adult book. As I started to read the book I immediately started to like it. 
    The story is about Jenna, a young girl recently out of collage her life was simple and plain, and she liked it that way. Every part of her life was going at a smooth pace; her friends, her job and even the guy she is dating. 
    One night having dinner with her best friend she spotted this gorgeous sexy looking man (Maxwell Knight) whom she never thought he would even give her the time of day, but he made her feel things she never felt before. Everything about him said trouble, but she couldn't help the strong connection she felt towards him. Thinking she would never see him again, she brushed it off as nothing, until she started running into him at the least unexpected places.
    This story is romantic, seductive and sexy with class. As I read I found myself falling in love with Max, he is just the ideal guy, has it all and a very good lover may I add. It was a page turner for me. I read it 3 times and each time I loved it even more. I love all the characters in the book as well. An adult book with class! Looking forward to book 2!
    I give Something Great 5 stars.

    Something Great is a phenomenally beautiful and emotionally stir

    Something Great is a phenomenally beautiful and emotionally stirring journey of discovering and then choosing to claim the one who turns your world upside down and cherishes you like no one else. This story was such a blessing to me in a few different ways. I was shown what real friendship truly is and how wonderful it can be when it is genuine. This story showers you with a captivatingly passionate romance that soothes the soul and fills every part of your heart with such a deep level of fulfillment and joy that you will ache when the story comes to a close. The importance placed on family throughout this story is so good to see and it really is the cord that binds them all together. If not for our friends and family, where would any of us be?

    Watching the progression of Max and Jenna’s relationship throughout this brilliant story was such an incredible gift, and I enjoyed every second of it. I loved watching how relentless Max was in winning Jenna’s heart and her trust. He knew how special she was, and he was not afraid to show her as often as he could how much he treasured, loved, and wanted her. Jenna tried to play things cool and brush off his attention and gentleness towards her, but in the end, I was so happy when she finally decided to take a chance on them. She found out just how much she would have lost out on if she would have pushed him away for good. Only then was Jenna able to see the immensity and depth of Max’s heart and soul which was already binding itself to her in ways that she never acknowledged until then. He was in this with her for keeps, and she realized that she was the luckiest girl on the planet.

    While I have a small circle of friends in my life, I have never experienced the level of friendship that Jenna had with her friends. The level of openness and intimacy that they all easily shared pulled at my heart more than a few times. I loved how they were able to share simply everything, so that there were no feelings of isolation or boundaries among them. I wonder at times what that level of depth would feel like, but I enjoyed watching it unfold especially between Jenna and her roommate Becky. Becky was such a beautiful friend who knew how special Jenna was, and she made every effort to show her just how much her friendship was treasured.

    To watch the closeness and love that was evident among Max, his brother, and his parents was amazing and stirring. There was no fear of showing too much emotion in order to keep protective walls up to hide behind. Instead they made sure to appreciate and love each other for who they were. They loved each other through the good and the bad times, and they gave space and support when it was needed. The family dynamic was warm and inviting, and Jenna felt like she was already loved and accepted without question or requirement at their first meeting. I believe that was something that helped her feel at ease with her decision to stay with Max. With the support and love from our family, it is amazing what all we can accomplish.

    Mary Ting has left me happily speechless with this marvelous wonder that is her latest novel. She has clearly taken her work to another level from her book From Gods which I absolutely adored. I was blown away by the superb romance, and I felt every emotion between the two so vividly that I felt lost when their story ended. I am so excited to read the next part of Max and Jenna’s story. I can only imagine what new surprises Mary will give us, and I am becoming such a huge fan of her writing that is so full of heart and passion. I could read her stories forever and never get tired of them!

    If you are a contemporary romance lover you are sure to love this story, & if you're not...well...prepare to be converted!, August 17, 2013
    I am in love with this book! Jenna & her friends have been so fun to get to know! Max is hilarious & dreamy all in one! I have said for a long time that I am not a contemporary romance fan per say, but I have found that there are indeed a few authors out there that have me begging for more! M. Clarke is now on that list!

    THANK YOU SO MUCH for this book! I am seriously in need of the next!

    I won't give away any spoilers away, but check out a few of M.Clarke's excerpts to see how fast you fall for this pair! If you are a contemporary romance lover you are sure to love this story, & if you're not...well...prepare to be converted! ;)

    I was hooked from the moment I started reading this book.
    This is Mary Ting’s first venture into this genre writing under the name of M. Arthur.
    She has already made her mark with her Crossroads Saga. (needs to be a movie)  It was well worth the wait!

    One of the main characters in the book is a recent college graduate by the name of Jenna.
    Looking for her dream job and just settling for her current relationship which is safe.  She is easy to relate
    to as with most women we tend to not believe we can have it all.  We decide it’s easier to settle and not look
    for our “Something Great”.  Thankfully with the help and prodding of her really good friends, she takes a chance.

    Enter Maxwell Knight who is absolutely swoon worthy and does his best to win her over.
    From the time their eyes meet you could just feel the fireworks leaping from the pages.  I felt myself become
    totally immersed in the characters.  You could actually feel the heat!

    I love the fact that this is a story not only of love between a man and a woman but also the love between
    really good friends who care about each other’s well being.

    It was wonderful seeing Jenna emerge from a chrysalis to a butterfly.

    This book will have you yearning for that type of hotness and also the craving for
    heart shaped Rice Krispies Treats!

    This book is not to be missed and I hope there are more to come.  Well done!

    This is an amazing story about the unexpected whirlwind romance between Max and Jeanella. They run into each other and find that there is a chemistry that is undeniable, but trying to stay focused and not cheat on her current boyfriend Jeanella ignores her feelings. Max fights hard to get her attention and does cute and sweet things to impress her. Jeanella finds her feeling are becoming overwhelming and cant deny them any longer. This story has its ups and downs, highs and lows that every great romance has. I recommend this story to anyone who wants to feel like they are part of something great!

    I was gifted a copy from the author for an honest review.

    "I'm your prescription. Let me be your new addiction". I LOVED that!! The pull between the main characters is fantastic. How they are able to hold off is beyond me. Jenna knows what she wants and it could very well be Max but she is at a crossroads when it comes to him being her boss's son and she's not sure she really wants to go there. BUT, is the pull he has on her too intense that she isn't able to say no to him. This is a first in romance for this author Ms. Clarke and very well written. I hope to see more from her.

    Something Great...

    Let me first start off with thanking M. Clarke (aka Mary Ting) for looking me up to review her book before its release. I am really into the whole NA genre and was looking forward to reading her work for the first time. Yes, I know. I hear I am missing out on her CROSSROADS series from what I am hearing. Maybe one day soon I will get through my pile of reviews and read it. *sigh*

    Now on with the show. While I loved the storyline and the characters (will get to those in a bit) I think it was Ting's writing that kind of threw me off a little. Not that it was bad, it just different and came off a little choppy to me at first until I got used to it. But it was nice to know I am not the only one who likes to wear the crap out of '...' ! I love using '...' and I love reading books with those in them.

    One other tiny quirk I had was the name use of certain body parts. I felt like I was back in 9th grade Health class and not reading a romance novel. I don't know...could just be me...but it sort of ruined the scenes where they were mentioned.
    Earlier I noted I loved the storyline. Yes...yes I did. And I loved the chemistry between Max and Jenna even more. So when you add those two together you get one amazing read...an amazing read I couldn't put down. I flew through it and look forward to more NA reads by Ting. In fact, with the way the story was going I am hoping for a story about Becky and Matthew next. And hopefully, maybe someday, we will get to the rest of Jenna's friends. Even though one is married and another engaged, I think it would be fun to hear their stories as well.

    Love the whole NA craze that is taking over the literary world? Then this read will definitely be one to add to your TBR list.

    I enjoyed this book, the story of Max and Jenna. A shy girl trying to hold out against what she thinks is the playboy. Throw in some great friends and family, and you have a "great" story. I thought there were a few things that were unrealistic in a workplace setting, which is why I only gave it 4 stars. I think anyone who enjoys a romance with a little angst, will really enjoy this book.

    I was gifted this e-book from the author through a contest on Facebook. What a wonderful book! I know others have already gave a bit of a summary, so I won't do that, but, I will say that you'll love Jenna and Max. Mary has such a gift, and I'm so glad she shares that gift with the world! I can't wait until 2/10/14 for the next one, Something Wonderful!

    Something Great is just one of those feel good stories. One of those stories where even if you can sense what is coming, you still enjoy every exciting moment along the way. Of course it doesn't hurt that the story is deliciously hot, too.




    I really love our protagonist Jenna... I mean she does have a great name *wink*. Honestly, I adored how innocent and sweet-hearted she was. Personally I think those are two great qualities to have in a person. With our lead male, Max... just oh yes. Max is hot, protective, sexy, hardworking, and just all of the above. He's a ladies man and he knows it. I just loved watching him fall for Jenna, especially because of how different they are. It was definitely a sweet and spicy romance.




    Overall, really enjoyed this one. It almost makes me not want to read the next one because I really liked how it ended and a sequel always makes you nervous. Plus, I loved the family and fashion aspects of it! If you're looking for fun, sexy, good-feel read... this is it, definitely worth a try.

    Not impressed.

    If you like unbelievable, fantasy love affairs, this might be for you. I thought the writing style lacked interest and originality (how much "eye flashing" can you put in one novel?). Pulp romance...should have known better.

    This book is named SOMETHING GREAT for a reason..>IT IS FREAKING AMAZING! I am so in love with this book. NO LIE! Author M Clarke has captured a BEAUTIFUL story and given it life. I am not usually a romance reader. I am more of a paranormal/magic/supernatural type of reader. This book had me hooked from the very beginning. I love the twists and turns, the characters and the storyline. I am looking forward to more books by M Clarke.

    This is exactly what I posted once I finished reading Something Great.

    I finished Something Great last night. OMG I AM SO IN LOVE WITH THIS BOOK!!!! YOU my friend are amazing. You have DEFINITELY NAILED THE ROMANCE GENRE!!!!Congrats on this amazing book. I am not usually a romance fan so when I say you nailed it, I really mean you nailed it.
    So original and not at all what romance stories used to be. I will be reading this book again. Oh and did I mention YUM???
