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 always love reading a new author in my favorite genres and M. Clarke is a new one for me. I enjoyed this book so much. M. Clarke has put together a collection of characters that I would love to know in real life, they each brought something to the friendship group and made it solid. Then you have Maxwell who would make most girls dream of fairy tails and happily ever afters.
While out with her friend Becky, Jenna locks eyes with a man who with just his gaze makes her body burn. I mean come on I don't know how comfortable that would be in real life but from a fantasy stand point that is hot. This is not the last time she will bumped into this hot stranger, she sees him again after she leaves a job interview while getting coffee. It is like Kissmet that they continually run into each other, and so often they finally introduce themselves.
The intense connection and instant lust is there every meeting, but does she really know him and she is already dating someone else.
I loved loved loved this book and the characters. It was absolutely fantastic. The story was fun to read and enjoyable to follow this crazy romance. I had a hard time putting it down and wanted it to just keep going and never end. Max is the guy you dream of and men want to be while Jenna is who you wish you could emulate. She is smart, funny, moral and has ambition. I will have to find more books by this author. I am a new #1 fan!
