Review: Something Amazing 2: Something Precious
Something Precious by M. Clarke is a continuation of Jax and Rachel's story from Something Amazing. The bittersweet of what happens after the happily ever after when real life begins.
Jax and Rachel are three months away from their wedding, Jace is happy as a clam (or a ninja turtle) and things are going great. Then Jace's mom/Jax's ex-wife Chloe pops back up in the picture attempting to be a "mom" to their son all the while scheming to get Jax back. The Rachel goes to New York Fashion Week to work and runs into her high school crush who is now a hot model and he is pursuing her. If the universe tried any harder to make things near to impossible for Jax and Rachel it would probably implode.
The great thing about stories like this is seeing the struggle, the realization, and the ultimate correcting of behavior that enable such wonderful characters to work through their issues and come out the other end even better than before.
LOVE love LOVE this series!
LOVE love LOVE this series!
With each book I fall in love all over again with these characters & their world. Every book has surpassed the last with Something Precious being my new fave! We are reunited with the friends we quickly fell in love with, in between enjoying & grieving Jax & Rachel's emotional tornado, while finding a whole new level of hated for Chloe! I was very proud of Rachel's restraint. I can not say I would have handled that whole ordeal as coolly as she did. The ending was absolutely perfect & had be feeling so many different emotions all at once! I sincerely hope to see more of this diverse group soon, but until then I can swoon in the memories they have left us with.
the most moving, the most passionate, and the most stunning
Something Precious is by far the most moving, the most passionate, and the most stunning of her “Something” series books. The writing and the intensity level has only continued to increase with each book until you can no longer deny just how beautiful and magnificent this entire series has become! This story is nothing less than a masterpiece truly written by a brilliant artist. If you enjoy your stories with more heart and soul then you know what to do with, then this is one series that you cannot afford to miss out on.
Jax was finally convinced that he, Rachel, and Jace were on their way to the bright and beautiful future that he has been hoping for. The major obstacles they have had to overcome are behind them now, and they can finally focus their concentration on the peaceful days ahead. If only life were that simple and neat because even when we see smooth sailing ahead Fate can sometimes decide to throw a few waves and raindrops our way. When their calm skies are disrupted with a huge storm, they try to hold onto the love they have in their heart for the other, but sometimes doubts and insecurities cover us like water and cause our grip on the other to slip and sometimes to break altogether. In those times, we need to decide what is more important to us – our pride and anger or love and forgiveness. Will the storms that Jax and Rachel weather overtake them, or will they find a way to conquer it and be that much stronger afterwards?
If I enjoyed Jax and Rachel from Something Amazing, I have officially fallen in love with both of them. I couldn’t have imagined the depth of determination and courage that they would need in order to fight for their family. They had so much to lose, and they had to decide if they were going to let it slip through their fingers or hold on tight and allow the strength and stubbornness of their love bind them together forever. I loved how their friends and family rallied around Rachel and her family giving their love and encouragement without forcing their advice and opinions on them. They allowed them to work through their issues without stepping into it and making it an even bigger mess.
M. Clark has enchanted me with her true mastery and genius throughout this story. This series is undoubtedly an amazing creation that challenges and compels us to live our life using our heart rather than always relying on our head. We need to give love more than we need to give advice. Since we are all human, we can expect to fail at times, but if we are lucky, we will have friends close by who will help to pick up us up, dust us off, help us smile again, and put us back on the right path. Only then can we learn how to love those around us with the same honesty, purity, and passion that is shown to us.
