This book makes ME sing halleluha! I just love the multiple person perspectives. I wish life was like Jean's and Max's relationship. I would recommend this book to ages 20 and up. This is the second best trilogy ever! Crystall should listen to Ariana Grande's song 1 less problem! Seriously! That woman needs a therapist! I love this book so much. Fifty million stars! I will not ever forget it!

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 as well. The continuation of there love in this book is amazing. I was happy to see Becca and Matt get there chance at love too but with Becca and Matt they are not at that point in there relationship since it has been a rocky road for them. Actually it has been tough for all four main characters in this book. I was hoping that Jenna and Max would get there happily ever after in this book than I realized that Max and Jenna have always had there forever in every page that this author writes Max and Jenna come out. Yes there are trials and tribulations that these two have to go through but there hearts never stopped caring. Jenna loved Max but in her hearts of hearts but was too afraid that her heart would get damaged if she allowed herself to love. I am surely not gonna tell you if she said it to Max but I will tell you Max told Jenna I love you every chance he got. Fast forward to Matt and Becca these two characters are unique in there own ways. They have a connection that Becca is afraid to admit. Does she admit it? Your so gonna have to read the book to find out. The author hit this book out of the park I just can't wait to see what happens next in Something Forever if this book is any indication of sizzling then watch out make sure you have the oven mitts handy. Heck you need them for this book as well. The steam coming out of the pages was so gonna fog my glasses lol Pick up this book and let the steam begin for you just as it did for me. FYI One of these characters gets a surprise that your so gonna want to read about and be apart of. Please if you have read Something Great and fell in love with the characters as I did then you will so fall in love with them all over again in Something Wonderful. Now don't say I didn't far warn you. Now go get your copy and enjoy your new friends. Happy Reading

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 get Becky's prologue too, she has her own back story that has shaped her and made her closed off and feel guilty.  Max and Jenna are happy and moving forward with their relationship, but soon Jenna finds out that Max is not being completely honest with her. Crystal, Max's ex-girlfriend has filed a lawsuit and is causing trouble between them. Jenna is hurt because Max doesn't tell her, instead she has to hear the secrets from other people.  Matthew is starting to like Becky and is scared about forgetting his past love. He doesn't think he is ready to move on. Becky doesn't trust men after her past relationships and thinks Matthew is just another player. She is scared to put her guard down. Will Jenna forgive Max for his secrets and be there for him through this tough time? Will Becky put her stubbornness and trust issues aside to try and see where things could lead with Mathew? Will Matthew learn to let go of the past and have Something Wonderful? This was an amazing, sexy, hot, swoon worthy read, that touched my heart!!! I cried and fell in love with the characters and could not get enough! I am giving this book 5 out of 5 stars, and can't wait to read Something Forever!

OMG!!! This book had me on a rollercoaster of a ride the whole time i was reading it. I liked the different POVs because you got to see everybodys perspective. I never wanted to put the book down, I was so into it. The sex scenes were AMAZING! It kept you on the edge of you seat. And the was Max proposed to Jenna, I was crying along with her. Every emotion that the characters felt, I felt it as well. I surely can't wait for Something Forever. And the end BLEW MY MIND MARY!!!!!!!

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 loved the turn that the relationship between Jenna's BFF Becky and Max's brother Matthew took. The friendship bond of Jenna, Becky, Nicole and Kate is one that every woman wishes she had. The relationship between Jenna and Max is epic and teaches you that at times you have to let go of the past and move forward to let love in. The sexcapades were hot..hot..hot but did not over shadow the storyline which I was so happy to see. It was perfect in every way! There is a cliffhanger that will make you wish you had the next book in your hands when you're done. I can not wait! M. Clarke has done it again!! Now to order my mug with "TKLS" Can't wait until you see what that means.

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 end up in such beautiful settings. Along the way, each person opens a little more of their heart, scared to leave it unguarded, but willing to try so that they can reveal their past pains and move on through to discover that they each are wanting the same happily ever after their heart desires. The love they are able to show each other by the end of the story is magical!

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 left battered and scared from the trials that they have had to face, and yet they still yearn for what all women need – to be wanted, to be loved, and to be cherished. They find everything that they could ever need and want standing in front of them in the form of Matthew and Maxwell Knight, and yet they can’t help but push them away seeing them as a mirage of the deepest longings of their heart and soul. However, these two men must learn to battle their own fears and hurts if they are to open the eyes of the women who have already claimed their hearts to the unstoppable force and passionate depth of their love and devotion for them. What begins as a whirlwind romance will end up as a no-holds-barred-I-am-in-this-for-life pursuit for their hearts. In the end, one will have to pass the ultimate test of her character while the other will have to choose whether or not to surrender her heart to a love that only appears once in a lifetime. I was utterly in awe as I watched the stunning metamorphosis of not just one but two beautiful women who deserved only the best but instead were handed its leftovers. Becky and Jenna couldn’t be more different from the other, but they have come to form a strong and powerful bond of friendship over the years. It is this bond that allows them to open up and honestly help the other begin to heal and to learn that who they are is not even close to who they want to be. Through a compassionate act of fate, they are both given a glimpse of what they could have in the pure love and fierce passion that Max and Matthew Knight shower them with. Becky fights her feelings for Matthew for fear of further damage to her already fragile heart while Jenna must do what she fears the most in order to claim Max before she loses him forever. Max and Matthew have their own battles to face in this journey before they can begin to heal the women they love. They too have to decide how much they are willing to risk to keep the women they can’t live without from disappearing from their lives forever. Will Matthew be able to recover his stolen heart before it’s too late, or will he surrender it completely and claim Becky’s at the same time? Is Max ready to watch his forever with Jenna drown in a sea of secrets, or will he conquer his demons and claim the only woman who has made him think of the future? This is one love story that will melt any heart of stone and make you see the virtue in living life feeling with your heart instead of thinking with your head. The love expressed in the pages of this book is both exhilarating and aggressive. It is not one to be taken lightly, and it is one that will stay with you for a very long time. If you ever find a love like this in your life, I advice that you hold on tight and do all that you can to never let it go. Do not allow yourself to live with the regrets of what ifs that will slowly empty your heart and cause it to grow bitter with want and need. Instead, dare to risk it all in order to claim your something wonderful. Just when you think the art of storytelling couldn’t possibly get any better, M. Clarke paints a delicate and refreshing masterpiece that will inspire, electrify, and melt your heart. Her exquisite and unforgettable talent is a rare jewel that you will treasure and enjoy over and over again.

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 bothered. Then the drama hits.  The scandal that will test Jenna and Max’s love, and drive Becky and Matt closer. Something Great, Something Wonderful is absolutely Something AMAZING!  Love this series, Love the characters, Love the hotness. How can you not love a series with hot, wealthy, sexy, smart, brothers that are so immensely devoted to those they love?   This story was written in several points of view, which I loved, because you got the complete feel of every character’s emotion.  It helped pull you deeper into the story, held you there, and you didn’t want to come up for breath untill it was over.  This story is full of butterflies in the gut, and moments that will keep you giggling like a school girl.  Jenna character grows in this story, giving her more confidence that comes out in ways that you will least expect.  Drama, no story would be good if it was just a straight –n- arrow plot… and Something Wonderful fills that need with excitement and unexpected twists. It is an amazing read that satisfies the winter blues!

Something Wonderful is amazingly brilliant!  Sexy, Romantic, Page turning good, could not put this book down! Read it in one day. M. Clarke you are AMAZING!  Something wonderful starts right where Something Great left off.  After her accident Max is taking care of her. We get to see a new side to Jenna I didn’t think possible, she is more open and a little naughtier. I like this new side to Jenna. This time around we get to read from not only Jenna’s POV but also from Max, Becky (Jenna’s BFF) and Matt (Max’s brother). Max and Jenna are still very much in love, but something happens. Crystal is back and she is not willing to give up Max that easy. Could Jenna and Max’s love be in jeopardy? We also get to know Becky’s story. Something horrible happened to her before she met Jenna. Matt starts liking Becky and Becky hates him or at least that’s what she tells herself but deep down she knows is not true. I really loved how we get to know what each and every one of them is thinking/feeling. On the last book I really fell in love with Max and I still am, but I came to like Matt a lot. We get to find out about his past and how he starts to develop feeling for Becky.  Everything was well thought out and it played out so well, it all fell in place as it was meant to be. I give Something Wonderful five stars.
