New Adult Contemporary Romance - Recommended for readers 18+ due to mature content

This is the first book in the Dearest Series and a stand-alone novel.

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 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 with two companion novels. The second book, FINDING DANDELION, is now available on Amazon.

Excerpt of DEAREST CLEMENTINE , copyright 2014 Lex Martin

Gavin's grip is firm on either side of me as he ducks down to look into my eyes. Even though I lean back, I can feel his minty breath on my face.

"Clementine, I want to warn you." His voice is husky and deep. "I'm going to kiss you, and you're going to like it. A lot. But I want to be clear that I'm not going to sleep with you because I want you to respect me in the morning." His mouth lifts up in a wry smile. "This is simply one friend helping out another. Okay?"

Wait. Is he serious?

He must sense my apprehension because he rubs his thumb softly across my cheek. "It's just an exercise, to get you into your story. I promise."

I laugh, embarrassed, intrigued, and a whole lot turned on by the idea. He smiles again, but this time it's different. His eyes darken as his hands glide over my hips. My breath catches in my chest.

"Gavin, I don't think--"

He rests a finger over my lips.

"I'm doing this in the name of academics. You need inspiration? You're looking at it. Now shut up and let me kiss you."

Holy. Sh**.

5.0 von 5 Sternen überraschend gut .. 28. Juli 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
zuerst muss ich wohl erst mal eine Entschuldigung loswerden. Habe dieses Buch als ebook kostenlos über Amazon "erworben", hatte aber keine großen Erwartungen an dieses Buch. Aus diesem Grund hab ich es auch erst einmal ständig in meiner Leseliste hin- und her geschoben, da ich gedacht hab das es mich langweilen würde. weit gefeht.. der harmlose Titel und auch das Titelbild haben mich auf eine völlig falsche Fährte geführt. (im Rückblick passen jedoch beide perfekt zu dem Buch)

Dieses Buch hat mich gleich nach em ersten Kapitel gefesselt.. der Schreibstil so flüssig als hätte die Autorin nie etwas anderes gemacht .. Die Geschicht und die Charaktere wundervoll und man wollte nicht das die Geschichte endet. Zum Inhalt ist sicher schon genug gesagt und man hätte sicher die einzelnen Aspekte des Buches noch weiter ausbauen und erklären können, aber dann wäre dieses Buch sicher viel zu lang geworden. Es viel mir zwischendurch sehr schwer das Buch nich in einem durch zu lesen .. werde mir heute noch das 2te Buch "Finding Dandelion" zulegen und diese Autorin defenitiv zu meiner Lieblingsautorenliste zufügen. Hoffe noch sehr viele Werke von Ihr lesen zu können.

The follow-up "Finding Dandelions" is already in my shopping basket.

Thanks Lex for this entertaining hours. :)

5.0 von 5 Sternen This clever book was a HOME RUN (pun it and you will understand)! 19. April 2014
Von RMS - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
Dearest Clementine......I took a chance on you despite being put off by your cover (life imitates art in that I am begging the author to PLEASE change the cover as I personally think the current one cheapens the look), and boy was I hit hard by this clever, witty, sweet but gritty novel. Seriously, I read TONS of Kindle books and am rarely so impressed that I feel the need to leave a review. The characterization of Clementine and Gavin were top notch. The little nuances that "show" not "tell" the connection between the two were just spot on (forehead kissing, tucking hair behind ears, smoothing hair). The progression of Clementine from closed off and distrustful to accepting affection and possibilities is believable. Gavin is my perfect type of hero - loving, tender, understanding, protective, persistent, no cheating.

There is a lot of angst coming from different directions. To be honest, I thought the Darin angst wasn't needed and just put the angst level over the top like most NA novels currently. But, once I hit about the halfway mark, the author revealed the necessity for that angle which I was totally on board.

The humor was very clever! It reminded me of a much toned down version of Tara Sivec's humor to a certain extent. The dialogue was smooth and natural. Winking and smirking were at a minimum (really with all the smirking and winking going on in NA books the characters have got to look like they have facial tics....try it in front of a mirror....totally unappealing). Cussing was there, but it was natural and not forced 5 times in one sentence for shock value. The sex was steamy, but again natural and minimal which fit the angst involved.

I am REALLY looking forward to the coming books in this series. I am a bit worried about Jax (I hate cheating and won't buy a book if I know it is involved), so I am hoping, hoping, hoping that the author doesn't take that angle. I am anxious to see how the author redeems Darin (again cheating but we know that ship already sailed as it pertained to Clementine). I would love a book with my favorite secondaries, Jenna and Ryan, as they were HILARIOUS (hence my Tara Sivec reference)! I know Jenna/Ryan were a couple from the start in this novel but somehow, someway there needs to be a story for them as they are just too great to remain bridesmaids!

The only constructive criticism I have to give is that I personally would have liked to get some flash backs to Clem's family relationship which caused much of her angst and lack of trust in others.

I have found a few hidden gems by new authors recently, and this one is top notch! I really find it hard to believe this is the author's first book. I completely and utterly recommend taking a chance on Dearest Clementine. This book is going into my "saved" collection, and the author will be in my "check each month for a new novel" list.

UPDATE: I would love to thank the author for indeed replacing the original cover! This new cover is SO MUCH better.....

5.0 von 5 Sternen Gavin Melted Me! 15. Juli 2014
Von Shelly Crane - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
My FAVORITE NA book of the year, hands down.

Gavin and Clem were just...amazing. Gavin was my favorite kind of book boy. If you know the kind of guys I write, then you know what I'm talking about. I LOVED him. I've already re-read the ending. I hated when it ended because I wanted it to go on and that rarely happens for me anymore.

Yes, there was drama, which I hate, especially with exes, but it was all justifiable. There was a few times when I was almost disappointed because cheating is unforgivable, but Miss Lex Martin pulled through, thankfully.

it never dragged, it flowed, the supporting cast was awesome and funny. I'm already working my way through book two.

6 out of 5, I'll be putting this on my signed shelf pronto, stars from me!

4.0 von 5 Sternen Great first book! 12. Juli 2014
Von romance reader 2013 - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
I really enjoyed this book. It had me hooked from the first page and didn't let go. I didn't want the story end! There were several great things about this book, not least of which was that it was well written, well thought out, and well executed. You would think that this plot line has been done to death, especially in the NA genre, but something made this book feel different. Yes, you have the college scenario, with the heroine and her friends, she has a past she is trying to work through and in comes the gorgeous but sweet hero to save the day, all with a backdrop of the BU campus and college classes. We have seen many variants of this before, but what made this different for me is that the characters seemed real and very likable to me.

I really empathized with Clementine and what she was going through and how she was dealing with it. She may have been a spoiled little rich girl, turned poor, but that didn't turn her into a whiny little brat. She picked herself up and fixed things for herself. It also seemed very believable that she would become cold and bitchy, as a defense mechanism of what she'd been through, but that she had great friends that saw through that and loved her anyway.

Gavin, of course, is a totally swoon worthy book boyfriend, who smartly realizes that Clem is probably closed off for a reason and doesn't push her. But instead cleverly circumvents her no dating rule by helping her under the guise of a friend, with several makeout sessions. Very cute! And to top it all off he's a guitar player!

I didn't really love the whole mystery storyline but otherwise, great work. Looking forward to the next one!

This book was incredible! I can't wait to read the next book in this series! I was hoping that it was gonna be about Jax and Dani! "X Marks the spot!!" Seriously though, this book was amazing! Lex Martin is a literary genius!! This book has it all, heartbreak, love, danger, sexy men and women, naughty humor, naughty sex, laughter, tears, drama and everything else! I'm so glad I was able to attend the online event where I won this book from Lex Martin. I also had a chance to talk with her as well. She's a great person and funny as hell and she definitely has the right stuff to hook in her readers and make them instant biggest fans! If you haven't had the pleasure of reading one of Lex Martin's books you should seriously do so very soon! You won't be sorry! Her books are a MUST READ IMMEDIATELY!! You won't want to put it down and you will scramble to get her next book as soon as you finish the last page on her current :) So instead of being a spoiler I suggest you get your own copy and read it and decide for yourself how great she is because I know you will!! ENJOY!! Thanks Lex for gifting me with your amazing novel! BIG HUGS girl you ROCK the pages!!

3.0 von 5 Sternen Too watered down for me...spoilers 20. April 2014
Von GL fan - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
This book was a random find. Clementine was a snarky character and her attitude was hilarious at times. There was angst with her cheating ex Darrin, her family, and a former prof. I felt like the book fell flat within a few chapters. With Clementines out there personality I really wanted her to raise hell with her first interaction with Darrin after so many years, but then she ends up being friends with him again. Civil I would have been fine with, but friends?! I really wished Clenentine had confirmed on TV what a douche/cheating ahole Darrin was. Instead, she protects his reputation. Wtf?And then her brothers betrayal and then with sticking with Darrin after all these years? Seriously, I wanted Clementine to make her brother grovel and work hard to win back her trust to the point I don't think I am interested in reading his book. Also, the issue with the ex-prof. I thought there would be more drama like an attack or a kidnapping to add more excitement.

Gavin was so sweet and sexy. I loved how he pursued Clementine. He brought this book up to 3 stars, plus the roommates seemed cool.
