**About the Author**
M. Clarke aka Mary Ting resides in Southern California with her husband and two children. She enjoys oil painting and making jewelry. Writing her first novel, Crossroads Saga, happened by chance. It was a way to grieve the death of her beloved grandmother, and inspired by a dream she once had as a young girl.
When she started reading new adult novels, she fell in love with the genre. It was the reason she had to write one-Something Great. Hence, Mary's pen name, M. Clarke? She tours with the Magic Johnson Foundation to promote literacy and her children’s chapter book-No Bullies Allowed.

After reading the last page, I had to take a moment to just take it all in! I am still reeling from all the feels after reading Something Amazing! It can be read as a standalone book, but I highly recommend reading the Something Great Trilogy first. This trilogy sets up many of the character backgrounds that are cast in this spin-off novel.
Filled with adventure and romance, these characters venture into new territory and new experiences that takes them out of their comfort zones and opens their eyes and hearts to new feelings and situations. Set in a beautiful and tropical setting, these two main characters, Rachel and Jackson (Jax), explores new feelings with each other that they both did not intend to happen. However, secrets can cause a lot of damage and cause heartache. That is the test...isn't it!?! Will their growing love for each other overcome?
Told in both Rachel's POV and Jax's POV, we get a more closer look at what their thoughts are of each other and themselves. Both and all supporting characters are well-developed making readers...such as myself...feel for them and their struggles. As for the setting, M. Clarke's well written and descriptive setting whisked me away to the beautiful island of Kauai.
M. Clarke delivers an emotionally, heart-wrenching story of falling in love in a complicated situation. Something Amazing is a wonderfully written story of falling in love and overcoming insecurities, doubts, and complications...and giving love a chance to more than one person.
