Review: Clear by Jessica Park


Stella Ford’s grasp on reality is already loose, and it’s about to come undone.

When the college junior flees Chicago and leaves her toxic family behind, she heads for coastal Maine to find the one person who brought her peace years ago: Sam Bishop. But the Sam she once knew now has painful secrets.

Stella is determined to heal them both. Healing, however, is a challenge when the walls of her everyday existence collapse. And when Sam’s best friend is his worst enemy.

When the line between life and death blurs.

When an end is just a beginning.

When lust and rage rule.

Yet during extraordinary chaos, there can be extraordinary love, even if that love comes with a twist.

Welcome to death tripping.

A thriller, a paranormal, and a passionate romance, CLEAR crosses genres and breaks boundaries.


This book was, how do I put this..different, weird? Weird is honestly the only word that comes to mind. I loved the plot, I loved the synopsis, and I loved the cover. In my mind, it had all the components of an amazing book. At 34% I am saying “What the actual f*ck” out loud (in a good way). Then something weird happens and I have read alot of books and around 50 something percent this book became an almost DNF. There was this weird line that was crossed in one of the romance scenes and it almost became this weird threesome and no. Just no, I couldn’t like I was squirming, uncomfortable and then that just haunted me the rest of the book.

My mind could not mentally get passed this weird three-way relationship/emotions going on. It was uncomfortable and just killed what an awesome story this could have been for me personally. I didn’t mind the surges or the passionate romance between Sam and Stella but boundaries were crossed way too much for me. Then, there are weird emotions and connections going on during the death tripping and it was just weird and uncomfortable…sorry Jessica Park (I still love Left Drowning).
