The Charm of You was a charming second chance romance (pun intended). And yes, I was pretty charmed by the whole romance!
For some reason, the overweight girl gets her revenge when she loses all the weight. While I’m totally against this trope (I am SUPER triggered, people), in The Charm of You, it is done really well. This is because there are a few flashback scenes showing the fateful night Nolan broke Presley’s heart.
I flew through The Charm of You really fast. I felt that the book was super short and I also think that there should have been more character development. In fact, when I finished the book, I honestly thought that there were pages missing! I wish that there were a few more chapters, actually.
The Charm of You also has an insta-love quality to it, especially on Nolan’s part. While Presley had a crush on Nolan when she was in college, this story takes places 10 years after and I should think that there is no love involved, right? But it is obvious that the chemistry is there.
I enjoyed The Charm of You. It is a good start in the Ladies Who Write series. If you aren’t familiar with this series, seven amazing contemporary authors are writing books in this series. In The Charm of You, the main character Presley is one of the owners of LWW, a publishing company which is the main focus in the LWW world.
