A New Adult Romance

About Finding Dandelion
When soccer all-star Jax Avery collides with Dani Hart on his twenty-first birthday, their connection is instantaneous and explosive. For the first time in years, Jax isn’t interested in his usual hit-it and quit-it approach.

But Dani knows better. Allowing herself a night to be carefree and feel the intensity of their attraction won’t change anything when it comes to dealing with a player. So when Jax doesn’t recognize Dani the next time he sees her, it shouldn’t be a total shock. The fact that he’s her new roommate's brother? That’s a shock.

Dani doesn’t regret that night with Jax, just the need to lie about it. Since her roommate has made it clear what she thinks about her brother’s “type” of girl, the last thing Dani wants is to admit what happened.

Jax knows he’s walking a fine line on the soccer team. One more misstep and he’s off the roster, his plans to go pro be damned. Except he can’t seem to care. About anything… except for the one girl who keeps invading his dreams.

Despite Jax’s fuzzy memory of his hot hookup with his sister’s friend, he can’t stay away from her, even if it means breaking his own rules. But there are bigger forces at work–realities that can end Dani’s college career and lies that can tear them apart.

Jax realizes what he’s losing if Dani walks away, but will he sacrifice his future to be with her? And will she let him if he does?

FINDING DANDELION, the second book in the Dearest series, is a stand-alone novel. This New Adult romance is recommended for readers 18+ due to mature content.

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.

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 novel with two companion novels. This New Adult romance is recommended for readers 18+ due to mature content.

My Review

**I received an Advanced Readers Copy for an honest review**

This review may contain some brief spoilers but won't give the whole story away.

This is a great story about learning to love when you thought it was impossible. A story about finding joy in one of the saddest times. This story shows true friendships and what family should and shouldn't be.

Let's start with Dani.... I just loved her! I wish she would have been more vocal at times but I thought overall she was a great lead female! She has this list of things she wants to do and is striking them off one at a time. Who would have ever thought that a one night stand (or partial one night stand) could lead to so much down the road. Dani had great friendships with her roommates and also one of my favorite characters, Travis.

Who wouldn't love or want a Travis in their lives???? A guy who would bend over backwards for you no matter what.

I will say my heart went out to Brady. All he wanted was to try and be with Dani but when something isn't meant to be you can't make it happen. I am glad that he does find someone though.

Jax is nothing but a player. After being burned one time it was all it took to have him change his mind and ways about women. You will love his intensity and at times you will want to smack him because he isn't thinking clearly.

I loved Lex Martin's writing and thought this was a great story! I think if you are a hopeless romantic then this book is definitely for you!!! I would love to read a book about Travis!!! He is just fabulous!
