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?
My thoughts after reading...
I guess everybody is looking for Something Great in their lives... be it in their career growth, success in business, personal fulfillment etc.
This story is about chance encounters and finding true love without really looking for it. Jeanella "Jenna" Mefferd is always paranoid when it comes to relationships. After being burned the first time, she tried her damn hardest to tread safely when it comes to dating. I mean, who could blame her? Nobody wants to get hurt and/or go through the same painful situation of being cheated the second time. Then enter Maxwell "Max" Knight. Tall, handsome & mysterious... The first time Jenna saw him, she immediately felt drawn to him. But, like the recluse that she was, she just brushed the feeling off and tried to focus on a safer albeit incompatible bet... But fate keeps on stepping-in...they meet again for a couple of times. And in those couple of times, the feelings she tries so hard to push away, keeps on resurfacing.
When Jenna transferred to her new job, she didn't realize that the beautiful stranger she keeps running into is actually her new boss... Although she knew she feels something, she didn't wanna assume. They exchange friendly and flirty banter every now and then, until feelings became stronger. And of course, to Jenna's surprise, Max felt the same...
To Max, Jenna was all he was looking for in a girl. Yes, he dated a lot, probably even had too much fun in that area. But of course, it gets old after doing it a while. Jenna was different from all the girls he dated... She exudes a combination of sexiness and innocence which was irresistible to him. He'd immediately known he needed her and she was it for him.
I guess its true what they say about people meant to cross our paths for a reason...and I guess its also true about letting love find you and opening your heart and mind.
I can relate to Jenna. She was always apprehensive and scared to take a chance...
And Max... Max should've been honest from the beginning about his past to avoid any misunderstandings or doubts.
I loved the story... It also makes the readers realize that we shouldn't take anything for granted. We should always remind our loved ones how much they mean to us. We never know what the future holds. And lucky for Max, Jenna was strong enough to hold on.
Something Great is a must-read! I can't wait for the sequel, SOMETHING WONDERFUL out on February 10, 2014.
