Book Review: Clementine

Title Clementine

Author R. Jean Wilson

Release Date July 27, 2013

Addison Caldwell has her future laid out before her. She has good friends, applications in the mail for PA school, and sweaty yoga to take the edge off of her lack of love life. Just when she finds herself right where she wants to be, Addison stumbles on a familiar stranger standing before her at a coffee shop. He’s beautiful and brilliant. She’s immediately drawn to him and can’t put her finger on how she could possibly have met him before. She finds herself tumbling head first toward a man that she knows is in a league composed solely of him and a bevy of Victoria Secret Supermodels.

“Wait,” he said, reaching out to touch her hand.
The second his hand reached hers, Addison felt a warmth spread through her body. The innocent contact stopped her mid-stand and she whipped her head down. His sturdy hand was barely resting on hers, and yet it was as if he had clenched it directly onto her heart. Holy. She pulled her hand back instinctively, confused by her body’s reaction to such an innocent touch.
What the hell am I getting myself into?

Review

Clementine is a sweet book. I think the idea of fate intertwining two people was a cute idea.

I feel like the book would have been stronger in first person. We only see things as Addison sees them, so it would have made more sense to me to have it be a first person book rather than third. That being said, keeping it in third person but seeing more of Holden's perspective would have been nice as well.

Overall, it's a sweet and lighthearted book that's a definite change from all the angst and drama-filled books that seem to be a dime a dozen lately.
