My Clarity was a fairly typical “new adult” novel. Alexandria’s father passes away around the same time she graduates high school and she decides to leave town for college. Her cousin Jimmy who just graduated let’s Alex move into the apartment he just moved out of and doesn’t tell her that her new roommate is a guy. From there the next 50 or so percent of the book is Alex and the roommate going back and forth with whether they like each other or not laced with extreme sexual tension. I have to admit that the first half of the book was somewhat intriguing and kept my interest but then it just started to get boring and predictable. I kept waiting for something big or earth shattering to happen but it never really comes.

3 out of 5 stars

Still reeling from the death of her father, Alexandria hopes to find both independence and reprieve from her grief by heading off to college. However, life throws her a serious curveball when she discovers that her roommate isn’t quite the person she had imagined.
Smoking, tattoos, and street racing for fast cash are Elijah’s only interests. A harsh life has made him apathetic and indifferent, until Alexandria enters his life. When their paths cross, turmoil abounds.

An inevitable encounter, an undeniable attraction, and an unexpected chance at love—will it be enough?
