Review: DEAREST CLEMENTINE by Lex Martin

20-year old Clementine is trying to figure out her next book idea to pay off her college tuition bills, so that would make her a creative writing major. Her first book was a national bestseller. She takes a romance writing class, which forbids the use of penis or clitoris. Oy! It was funny that she takes this class considering she doesn’t like to date and pretty much despises the male species all together. She pretty much has one gear: bitch mode. Funny! Her semester-long assignment is to write a romantic novella. Interesting.

“I feel weightless and a little buzzed from the euphoria of breaking through and being able to write again.” (66)

Then she meets Gavin, a guitar-playing hottie who is majoring in journalism and isn’t afraid of her bitchiness. The two writers connect. Gavin is able to help Clementine break through her guy issues and inspires her to write a killer romance story. He basically allows her to use him as a main character (they touch, they kiss, etc.) Oooo la la! Clem and Gavin are great together.

Story is in the POV of Clementine, who is a witty and candid. The fact that she is an accomplished indie author makes her a relatable character and, like me, she was published while in college.

Good New Adult Romance.

My rating: 4 stars
