So it is when she espies someone about to create mayhem at one of her parties that she is up in his face and nothing held back. The problem is taken care of, but when that same jerk shows up at a meeting she has scheduled for her next high-roller and the party Excessively Diverted is planning for his about-to-turn-16 daughter Elizabeth quickly pulls the plug on any further work on the party. "Daddy, Fix this!"
Antonio aka Tony Reyes will do anything for his daughter and so it is that he eats crow and comes begging to have Elizabeth take care of the perfect party for his Valentina aka Vale. Elizabeth/Beth works hard to pull information from Vale in order to do this right: what are her hobbies, her likes, her dislikes? The business in on the edge of going under and she can't just walk away. As she and Vale become friends Elizabeth finds herself drawn to Tony.
But when he shows up at a charity event she attends with Dad and the sparks ignite, his relationship with his daughter may just be the thing that puts a damper on the fire. But...then...his "ex" may have something to say about that and the party planned for her daughter.
This book is tense drama all the way through. This Elizabeth doesn't back down and certainly doesn't spare words. When push-comes-to shove she learns what family is all about and realizes that it is what has been missing in her life.
I read SWAY and was happy to read of Eric and Ava in a little section of this story. This may not be JAFF but it certainly is inspired by a character we have looked on with disdain in the past. Maybe it is time to give her "a second chance" in our affections.
This was written from the first person perspective if the main character, Elizabeth Elliott, and I got a great feeling for who she is. Her motto is Never Let Anyone Push You Around Or Tell You What To Do.
This could be read as a standalone, but will be especially fun for readers who read Sway, as this is a spin-off novella. There are some familiar characters from Sway, but they do not overshadow or distract from this story. (As if Elizabeth would ever stand for that)
Antonio "Tony" is an excellent match for Elizabeth. His daughter, Vale, adds dimension to the storyline and also to Elizabeth and Tony's characters and relationship. I do not believe this is a retelling of an Austen story. However, it is related to Sway which was a Persuasion retelling, and it is delightful that Elizabeth's party planning business is called Excessively Diverted.
Clash was the perfect title. Elizabeth and Tony met with a clash of personalities. Their initial meeting and dislike was believable and their relationship path was also believable and fun to witness. There are a couple of interesting side stories to add to the completeness of Clash. I definitely recommend this!
