I have had an incredible run of good luck with the novels I’ve read in the past few weeks. And that luck continues! 🙂

Blurb: A hot mess runaway bride and a smokin’ hot biker lock eyes at a red light. Lord have mercy . . . is our little town of Charmed, Texas ready for this?
Never one to do things by the book, Micah Roman couldn’t just chalk it up to bridal jitters, or even quietly call off her wedding to her long-time fiancé. No, she has to high-tail it out of the church sporting a dress that cost more than her car, and jump on the back of a smoking-hot stranger’s motorcycle. Her knight in all-black is headed to a town called Charmed, so that’s where she’ll go and try to lay low. Except their appearance raises plenty of eyebrows . . . and a sudden, intense attraction she has no business exploring.
Who knew picking up a damsel in distress would lead to lust at first sight? Leo McKane headed to Charmed prepared to deal with some family secrets–including his status as long-lost brother. This runaway bride is an unexpected distraction his set agenda and loner lifestyle doesn’t include. She’s everywhere he turns, getting under his skin with her quirky, headstrong ways and eyes he can’t forget. But when Micah’s jilted ex comes looking for her and opens up his shady past, Leo knows he has a choice to make.
They both do.
Run to safer ground again? Or take a leap that their untrusting hearts are wary to take.
SASCHA DARLINGTON’S REVIEW
Where to begin?
Well, if you’re a fan of romantic comedy and you haven’t read a Sharla Lovelace novel, you must immediately remedy that. I have read all of the entries in her Charmed in Texas series so far, and I just looked back to see if I said what I’m about to say (I have, just so you know), Lovelace keeps getting better with each book in the series.
In Charmed at First Sight, we have a runaway bride, Micah, a biker, Leo, and the incredible, magical town of Charmed, Texas with its ensemble of eccentric characters and weird goings-on.
The novel is told from Micah’s point-of-view, which is perfect. The funny, witty, snarky conversational style resonates. At times, I did wish that I could be privy to Leo’s pov, but that was just me being greedy, and it totally wasn’t necessary for my enjoyment of the story.
Most of the action takes place in less than a month’s time, which would normally have me nitpicking about the instalove-thing and how unbelievable this is. But, it wasn’t unbelievable. The way Lovelace has drawn Leo had me falling for him too. He’s sex-on-a-stick, but inherently decent despite a past penchant for bad-boy ways. The banter and chemistry between Micah and Leo result in some sizzling scenes. Yes, I could believe this instalove.
So much happens in Charmed at First Sight, and there’s so much to love, as well as enough drama to keep you on your toes. I am already looking forward to the next entry. Keep ’em coming!!
If you’re in the need for some escapist rom-com, check out Charmed at First Sight and the entire Charmed in Texas series.
I received an ARC in exchange for an honest review.
