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 had imagined.
Smoking, tattoos, and street 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?
Here is what bloggers are saying about the early ARC.
“Grab your tissue box, it will come in handy as M. Clarke/Mary Ting pulls each tender heart string right from the beginning of this touching love story!”
“At first glance, no one would believe Elijah’s tough guy exterior hides a genuine and giving heart. But, you cannot help whom you fall in love with and when opposites attract, the chemistry is undeniable!” –InD’tale Magazine

"Elijah & Alex sizzle in this wonderful page-turner by M. Clarke. I absolutely could not put it down! This book was 5 stars amazing!" Janie, CrossAngeles
“Alex,” he called softly with a smooth, seductive tone. At least that is how it rang in my ears.
Slowly gazing up, I jerked back and hit the back part of the sofa when I saw his face far too close to mine. With his knees bent, his hands placed on either side of the sofa cushion, near my thighs. My heart went into overdrive as my eyes outlined his muscular biceps, up to his shoulder, his dark stubbles, and then…bam! My eyes were deadlocked on his.
Frozen in place, I was mesmerized. His piercing brown eyes sucked me in. I wanted to trace his thick brows with the tips of my fingers, down to the perfect base of his nose, around his high check bones, and across his smooth, kissable lips. Swallowing a nervous gulp, feeling little tremors rush through every part of me, I swear, I felt like I was shrinking…dissolving into the sofa…melting into his scent. Though I had expected him to smell like cigarettes being this close to him, he actually smelled nice—minty.
Holding me captive with that look, I knew at that moment, he would be my fantasy, the one I would dream about in bed—the bad boy with the tattoos, with that arrogant attitude. The heartbreaker…if only he drove a motorcycle and wore a leather jacket, he would be the complete badass package.

“Sometimes life sucks big time. It takes you on a rollercoaster ride, drags you through the mud, smears it on your face until it takes every bit of your air and you can’t breathe.”
My Clarity was the first book I’ve read by M.Clarke and I must say I’m really impressed. It captured me and kept me reading until the end and left me with a smile on my face.
It’s only been a few short months since the death of Alex’s dad. Still grieving over the loss Alexandra heads off to college. She’s both nervous and excited about starting this new chapter in her life. Thanks to the help of her cousin she has found a place to stay and is looking forward to meeting her new roommate ‘Ellie’.
But, she’s in for a surprise when she finds out just who ‘Ellie’ is...
Oh My God!!! I had a hottie for a roommate. This was bad! VERY BAD!”
Elijah is just flitting through his college life, not really caring about anything. Street racing, girls, and his friends are the only real things keeping him going. That is until Alex arrives and turns his world upside down.
The sexual tension Alex and Elijah give off is absolutely electrifying. There’s no denying their feelings they have. However, Alex is off limits and Alex vowed to never date a guy who smokes.
I loved seeing these two characters interact, their connection wasn’t just skin deep. They connected on a whole new level, it was soul deep. It’s true what they say, opposites do attract.
“I’m the opposite of you. You are day and I am night. We complete each other. You are my clarity, Alex.”
Elijah may have a hard exterior and give off the bad boy vibe, but as you continue to read you get to see how caring, compassionate and loving he really is.
“All I ever wanted was clarity in my life. Something that made sense, something that I could hold on to, someone I could love without a doubt and be my home. Alex, you’re my clarity. You. Are. My. Home.”
This truly was a beautiful story to read. It made me smile, it made me laugh and it made me cry. It also makes you realise that life is too short. You need to grab it by the horns and live it to the fullest. You never know what’s around the corner.
Be grateful to what you have got as it could just disappear in the blink of an eye.
Thankyou Ms. Clarke for an inspiring story.
