Release Date: April 18, 2014




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 out…in 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 novel with two companion novels. This New Adult contemporary romance series is recommended for readers 18+ due to mature content. Look for the second book, FINDING DANDELION, this summer.

 Natalie’s 4 Star Review

“I have a scenario for your book”

I absolutely adored this book. It was fun, witty, sexy and mysterious all rolled into a great storyline that had me smiling, swooning and guessing the whole way through. 

Clementine has hit some rough patches in life, especially with past relationships so as you would expect she keeps to herself and avoids putting herself out there for men. She also has a little secret that not to many people know about, and she really would rather keep to herself. That right there leads into a bit of drama, a missing co-ed, a professor who will give you the creeps, the most amazing secondary characters that I wish I had as friends and one very sexy RA, that if I was 15 years younger I would totally lick his abs. 

“He smiles a dazzling, megawatt grin, and my chest clenches at the thought that he probably has likable abs”

Gavin is delicious!  He is they type of male character that I absolutely love in New Adult Romances. I am not a fan of heavy angst and man-whores are a dime a dozen so when Gavin came along it was pure heaven. Young, funny, sweet and sexy, everything he said and everything he did made me smile, giggle and maybe even blush a time or two. He took his time with Clementine, friendship first (yay!), nothing felt rushed or unrealistic, it was absolutely perfect. 

As a new author Lex Martin created a really fantastic story with characters that I truly and genuinely liked. I enjoyed every minute of this book and I can’t wait to see what she comes up with next in Finding Dandelion.
