    Title: Dearest Clementine Series: Dearest #1Author: Lex MartinRelease Date:April, 2014Rating: 5 starsCliffhanger:. No HEA:(view spoiler)[ yes(hide spoiler)]I didn’t know exactly what to expect when I reached for Lex Martin’s novel. I guess, I felt extremely adventurous and decided to give Dearest Clementine a chance. I’m a fan of a little fluffy, yet sexy New Adult reads, so I thought it would be right up my alley. And it was! From the start to the end I grinned like a Cheshire Cat and had [...]

    ARC provided to me by author Lex Martin in exchange for an honest review.This was a super sweet, cute, summer/spring time read, with a mystery sub-plot that, even though it was pretty obvious, really pulls you into the story and makes it hard to put this book down. Clementine is attending Boston University, where she is pursuing a degree in writing/english, even though she has already published a bestselling novel her freshman year, under a pen name. The story she had published is an account of [...]

    Title: Dearest Clementine Series: Dearest, #1Author: Lex MartinRelease Date:25th May, 2014Rating: 4 "Golden" StarsCliffhanger: No HEA:(view spoiler)[ Yes(hide spoiler)]I wanted to start my reading year with a sweet, surefire winning read and I definitely found that with ‘Dearest Clementine’. Our girl Clem had more issues than Glamour but far from being a whiny weak heroine, her sarkiness; although a shield was entertaining. And Gavin? That boy can call me Darlin' anyday! I have serious grabb [...]

    This was my first book from Lex Martin and after finishing it, I was a dying fan. We all know Romance is not for everyone. First, I believe you have to be genuine in order for all the readers to believe your story. That connection is very important, and not only for this genre, but for all the existing books. No connection leads to no admiration towards the book and its character. Believe me, this was not the case for Lex's story.I won't spoil much from the plot, only that our heroine Clementine [...]

    **** FULL REVIEW NOW POSTED **** Dearest Clementine was a sweet college romance mixed in with some mystery about a girl whose trust in friends, family, and men had been broken and the sweet, loving guy who helped her rebuild it. I really enjoyed it and swooned hard over Gavin Murphy!So, the whole story was told to us by Clementine who had sworn off dating after her high school boyfriend cheated on her with her best friend and then her college writing professor crossed waayyyyyy over the professi [...]

    I’ve been searching for a “chance-meeting” romance that literally sucks me in—to the point where I start unexplainably fawning and stroking my tablet screen. Dearest Clementine induced the “Kindle stroking” that sounds really dirty, but man, I’ve been waiting for it. This romance is so natural that I’d shelve it under “soul-mate love” or “you know you wanna get it on”. First you have Clementine. Oh, Clementine. With her head-strong attitude, her love-scorned ways (she was [...]

    4.75“I'm tired of being so closed off. It hasn't made me any stronger or braver. It hasn't imparted any wisdom or comfort. It has just made me lonely.”This book was great! I started it earlier today and, though I only meant to read a few chapters before finishing my OTHER read [Queen of Shadows by Sarah J. Maas] I found that I just could NOT put this book down. This is the debut book by this author, and I am impressed to say the least. This was a great story, filled with great characters. I [...]

    This book was so much more than I thought it would be! I could not put it down, loved it so much!


    Polly

    I very rarely take chances on new authors. Especially ones that none of my friends have read. With that being said I'm glad I took a chance on this one!!I really loved it. I needed a light, funny, sweet, and with a dash of hot read today. This book delivered on all of those things. Great debut for a promising author!


    Maayan

    I must say, this book really surprised me! I didn't know what to except when I started reading it and I'm very pleased to say that I enjoy it very much! It was light, sweet, funny and cute :) I loved the supporting characters! all added color and life to the story. Clementine & Gavin were such a lovely couple! I loved how their relationship grew and how well the fit together ! I love how he pull her out of her shell and show her that good man DOES exist in this world. Gavin is definitely a b [...]

    5 TOTALLY AWESOME - LOVED IT - STARS!!! What's it about?Wow! A totally awesome, exhilerating, sweet and funny romance aboutmance! This book just sort of came out of no where and completely blew me away! After her first love cheats on her, her twin-brother betrays her, her father abandons her for a business deal overseas and after her mentor/professor begins to go crazy and stalk her, Clementine begins to believe that all men suck. Her survival instincts switch on to overdrive and Clementine beco [...]


    Maida

    I'm going to have to give this novel more thought before settling on a rating. I was able to piece together a considerable chunk of the mystery beforehand; however, it did NOT diminish my reading experience. I think that the main reason why I'm vacillating in terms of my rating is the inexplicability of Clementine's family dynamics. I needed more background information or something to help me connect the dots. (view spoiler)[Clementine's mother cut her off financially. But why? Are the readers r [...]


    Nikki

    Welcome to the book boyfriend list, Gavin Murphy. This book really surprised me. 1st read with this author and truly enjoyed this to bits. We have Clementine, who is basically a big ole bitch, but for good reason. Caught her boyfriend boning her BFF, her parents suck, her brother sucks, oh and she had a psycho professor stalk her too. Not alot of reason to trust anyone. Until Gavin Murphygh. What a gem. I absolutely adored him. He is an RA at the dorm on campus and also a guitar player in the ba [...]

    Don’t you just love when a book kidnaps you? Well, I do! And I thoroughly enjoyed every moment spent as a hostage of Clementine and Gavin’s story. I am surprised there aren’t more reviews posted on . It’s an absolute must-read in my opinion – whether you’re a fan of New Adult books or not. Romantic suspense is my first choice in choosing a book every single time. Here, we get a nice blend of well-balanced romance heated with sexual tension that sparks an undying flame, along with a [...]

    Descubri este libro hace muy poco tiempo, al principio empece a leerlo pensando que seria la tipica historia de amor en la universidad, pero no, es muchisimo mas, una historia maravillosa que enamora desde el primer parrafo que lees.Gavin es un protagonista tan dulce, tierno y perfecto que te hace preguntar si existira alguien asi en la vida real, me encanto su caracter divertido y que fuera tan bromista, me rei muchisimo con su ocurrencias.Clementine fue una protagonista maravillosa, me encanto [...]

    Tropes: 17“God, you make me hot when you talk grammar.”I wish I could partially blame myself for going into this book with hopes too high; I'd heard great things about Dearest Clementine. 'Not like other new adult.' 'Independent heroine.' 'No asshole hero.' But no, Dearest Clementine is just like all the rest.Clementine, or Clem, has hardened her heart. After asshole boyfriends in the past, a family that barely acknowledges her these days, she's not keen to trust anyone. Her best friends (an [...]

    4.5 stars!!I can't believe I waited so long to read this! I've had this book sitting on my kindle for over a year but once I started reading I couldn't stop. Gavin is as perfect as all the reviews say he is and I actually really love the heroine as well and feel like I can relate to her so much. Her roommates are awesome and I can only hope they all get books as well. The only thing I didn't like about this book was the miscommunication and the unnecessary drama that happened about halfway throu [...]

    Such a fun college romance read. Loved it. Just wish it was longer. Will definitely be following this author. Can't wait for the next book in this series!!!!! ( but they are standalone s. No cliffhanger:))

    Oh my Darling, Oh my Darling, Oh my Darling Clementine. You [were] lost and gone forever, [Oh my Darling], Clementine. I can't count the number of times that song went through my head as I read. I serious loved this book. If I had to classify this, I'd call it a New Adult Romantic Suspense. And since I love New Adult, and I love Romantic Suspense, this was right up my alley! I really liked Clem. She was smart (except for math), snarky with a dark sense of humor, and into book, GR and writing. (I [...]

    Every time I start a story I hope it will make me feel as good as this one did. This was such a sweet, warm read, I devoured it. I got the warm and fuzzies just from the first base action, the chemistry the author created was amazing.College senior Clementine is, at the beginning of the story, spiky and icy cold with everyone following a traumatic event in her past. She's unwilling to trust anyone. Gavin gradually breaks through her barriers by being all hot and emerald eyed and messy haired and [...]

    Dearest ClementineBy: Lex Martin**Received an ARC from author for an honest review**I fell in love with this story. It was very well written and flowed perfectly. The ending tied things up nicely while still leaving me wanting more. I will have to read the companions novels. I absolutely loved all the characters, especially Jenna and Kade. Really hoping Kade gets his own book. Clem and Gavin have a great relationship. Loved how Gavin makes Clem feel comfortable without pressure. He understands h [...]


    Sara

    This book wasn't for me so I'll keep this simple.Even though the characters are college aged, it had a more YA feel to me. I liked the story in general, but it was slow moving, low on steam and then wrapped up too quickly. Just not for my taste. Clementine was bitchy but I liked her. Not only was screwed over by a boy, she had a professor stalk her, and that storyline just wasn't necessary at all, a bit over the top and not very believable.My favorite part of this book was Gavin. His texts, his [...]
