Knight Fashion Cover
Nathan Cross is a struggling actor waiting tables at a local restaurant to make ends meet while he attends endless auditions. Though his hopeful career moves at a slow pace, Olivia is the strength and sunshine in his life… until she leaves him. One day, he is offered a contract with a modeling agent, leading him to work for Knight Fashion Magazine—a dream job he never imagined would become a reality.

Olivia swore she would always put her career first and that’s precisely what she did when she left Nathan. Having a deadbeat dad and watching her mom work two jobs to make ends meet have been her driving force. When she is offered a modeling career, she drops everything—even the love of her life—and moves to New York.
Though Nathan and Olivia try to steer clear of one another, working for the same fashion magazine causes their paths to cross again and old emotions are awakened. Can Nathan forgive Olivia or will he take the next step with the woman he is currently dating? Will Olivia do everything she can to break them apart? Or will she choose her career over her heart… again?




Nathan Cross has big plans.  He learns that nothing in life is written in stone.  But he has the chance to turn lemons into lemonade.  Olivia shows that we don’t always make the right choices.

If you’ve ever had thoughts of gracing the cover of a magazine, or becoming a model, you might want to check this book out.  It just may give you a small glimpse into one of the toughest positions to get into –it’s not a life for everyone.  And sometimes there are consequences for the choices you make.

The day I was reading this, I was having a bad day until I read Nathan’s conversation with his mom.  This is just one thing that makes this book enjoyable.  But one thing I couldn’t stop myself thinking about was hoping that Olivia gets what she deserves – it’s not always the man that screws things up in a relationship.  Another thing that I enjoyed was that the author shows Nathan being happy but then you realize that it’s something that he deserves.  But don’t expect a cut and dry ending.  Our author is very smart and leaves us hanging so that we have no choice but to read book two to see what she has in store for her characters next.

Writing her first novel, Crossroads Saga, happened by chance. It was a way to grieve the death of her beloved grandmother, and inspired by a dream she once had as a young girl. When she started reading new adult novels, she fell in love with the genre. It was the reason she had to write one-Something Great. Why the pen name, M Clarke?
