My Clarity by M. Clarke Blog Tour with 5 star review and giveaway

My Clarity Cover.jpg

Still reeling from the death of her father, Alexandria hopes to find both independence and reprieve from her grief by heading off to college. However, life throws her a serious curveball when she discovers that her roommate isn’t quite the person she imagined it would be.
Smoking, tattoos, and drag racing for fast cash are Elijah’s only interests. A harsh life has made him apathetic and indifferent, until Alexandria enters his life. When their paths cross, turmoil abounds.
An inevitable encounter, an undeniable attraction, and an unexpected chance at love—will it be enough?


Alex is ready to move on with her life. She's going on to college, just like her dad wanted her to before he passed away. Her cousin Jimmy told her she could have his old apartment and room with "Ellie". Turns out "Ellie" is definitely NOT what she all. But what can she do? She's stuck with this roomie for a while.  All of this is a bit much to deal with though. Alone, no one to turn to, and a whole new life ahead of her. Alex is determined to make the most of things and do everything she can to survive.

Then there's Elijah. The first impression I get is he's the party animal, different woman every night kind of a guy.  But, thankfully, he seemed to do a 180 in a matter of days. Throughout the entire book, he seemed like an all around nice guy. The only time you could tell anything about his past actions was when women who  come up to him and throw themselves at him hoping for a little lovin'. 

Watching these two come together was heart-warming.  They both had their own issues and demons to deal with but they were there for each other. Things weren't always smooth sailing, but are they ever in a relationship? This is a great reading, I'd recommend it to anyone


From Elijah’s point of view

On our way down, I managed to support her head and bent my knees in an effort not to crush her. That didn’t feel good to my knees or my hands at all. Since Alex didn’t move a muscle, I didn’t know how much of my weight landed on her, or if she was hurt. All I felt now was my upper body touching hers.
“Alex, you okay? Did I hurt you?” I murmured, looking at her.
She didn’t answer. Instead, her shocked eyes stared back at me. Those angelic blue eyes sucked me in so deep, I became lost in them. I was hypnotized, spellbound by her beauty and the eyes that held so much mystery, making me want to get to know her.
When her eyes shifted to my lips, I could feel my dick straining against my pants. Cool small breaths escaped her mouth into mine, and I swallowed them up—every single breath. Her body entangled in my arms, her breath became ragged. Her chest rose and fell quickly, and mine was doing the same. I’d like to think I was the cause of her rapid breathing. In that moment, I lost all sense of time…space…and reality.
I don’t know how long we were connected like that, but I almost lost my self-control when my lips headed towards hers as if they had a mind of their own. Fuck! I wanted to kiss her. We were in another world and everyone around us disappeared, but then, a part of my conscience reminded me that she was Jimmy’s cousin. God I really hated that voice right now!
Thank goodness, Seth broke our link. “You guys okay? And would you stop molesting her on the ice?”

I rolled my eyes at him. “Shut up and help me. I hurt my knees,” I said out loud, so the crowd around us could hear me. I had to make an excuse as to why I stayed on top of her so long, when I could have gotten up.
