About the Book
Twenty-year-old Clementine Avery doesn’t mind being called bitchy and closed off. It’s safe, and after being burned by her high school sweetheart and stalked by a professor her freshman year of college, safe sounds pretty damn good.
Her number one rule for survival? No dating. That is until she accidentally signs up for a romance writing class and needs material for her latest assignment. Sexy RA Gavin Murphy is more than happy to play the part of book boyfriend to help Clem find some inspiration, even if that means making out…in the name of research, of course.
As Gavin and Clem grow closer, they get entangled in the mystery surrounding a missing Boston University student, and Clem unwittingly becomes a possible target. Gavin tries to show Clem she can handle falling in love again, but she knows she has to be careful because her heart’s at stake…and maybe even her life.
DEAREST CLEMENTINE is a stand-alone novel with two companion novels. This New Adult contemporary romance series is recommended for readers 18+ due to mature content. Look for the second book, DEAREST DANDELION, this June.
Dearest Clementine is one of the best books I’ve read this year.
It is a unique and refreshingly sexy addictive story that was impeccably written.
Clementine Avery and Gavin Murphy story sucked me in pretty fast and kept capturing me more and more with each next page.
Gavin is… oh boy… hunky delicious yummy male. So swoon worthy. He had me grinning and giggling like a fool.
Some awful things happened to Clementine that made her closed off. She is strong leading female with her own secrets.
These two have an amazing banter, cheeky hot since they met.
The storyline is far beyond interesting and engaging.
Lex delivered absolutely mesmerizing story that kept me turning the pages into the wee hours of the morning. It was a truly beautiful and enticing journey with heart that you will want to lose yourself in.
Looking forward to read the next book in the series.
