Clarissa - Awakening by Jack Lauriger
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
Clarissa – Awakening is the first book in Jack Lauriger’s Clarissa series, and it’s an enjoyable quick read. It’s one of those books that merges the genre of women’s fiction with erotica, without crossing the boundary to be solidly in either one of the two genres. Story wise, it’s more of the former; content wise, we often slip towards the latter.
Quite different to a lot of stories out there, this is a story of rediscovery – the emphasis on the ‘re’. Our leading lady is already in a point in her life where everything seems to have come together, at the point most stories in the genre lead to. However, the reality isn’t quite what you would expect it to be – hence, the rediscovery.
I feel as though this is one of those books where saying too much gives away more information than is fair to the readers. It’s a story with many different elements in it, one where you have quite a few questions and get to watch as things slowly come together. You may not be given the story you are expecting, but the story will certainly leave you interested in seeing how everything comes together. With plenty occurring throughout, you’ll be more than a little curious about the details.
There’s certainly a lot of potential for this series, and it will be interesting to see where things go in the future books.
