Blurb: Even in a quirky small town like Charmed, Texas, there’s always room for love to take you by surprise . . . 

Gabi Graham might have hit the proverbial rock in rock-bottom. Hitting the single scene after ten years is hard enough. Finding out that her cheating ex-husband and his new barely-legal fiancée are expecting—that’s enough to drive Gabi over the edge and into a neighboring town’s divorce support group. It’s not really her thing to listen to anonymous strangers bash their exes, but at least there are cookies. And a sexy fellow newcomer who ignites her long-dormant libido. Spending a few lustful, post-meeting moments in Hot Guy’s truck can’t hurt. Unless, of course, Hot Guy turns out to be Thatcher Roman—her best friend’s brother and Gabi’s silent business partner.

Thatcher had no idea that the wildflower farm owner he’s been doing business with over email is the nameless woman who’s barreled into his life and his fantasies. He and Gabi have a new venture to run, a sister and best friend in the middle, and enough sparks between them to light up the entire town of Charmed. Given her past, it’s no wonder smart, gorgeous Gabi has trust issues. But maybe what they’ve found is more than just coincidence and chemistry. It might even be the beginning of one sweet, amazing second chance . . .


After struggling with a boring book for four days, I knew I had to treat myself. A Charm Like You was sitting in my TBR queue and there was no question I’d read it next.

A Charm Like You is the kind of book you want to devour in one sitting, forgetting everything else around you. In fact, all of the books in Sharla Lovelace’s Charmed in Texas series have been like that. They are not only charming, but they have more than a dash of magic, are sexy, and have an adorable couple at the center that the reader cares about.

Gabi Graham has gotten the short end of the stick too many times lately. Her husband has cheated, and now she’s being thrown out of her house because he wanted to keep his fiancee in the lifestyle to which she’d grown accustomed and didn’t pay off the mortgage on his and Gabi’s house, which was his end of the deal. At a divorce support group, she meets “Hot Guy,” and the sparks fly, even after she discovers who he is (her best friend’s brother) and decides that they can’t do whatever it is they’re doing.

As “Hot Guy,” Thatcher ranks as one of my favorite Charmed  heroes. He’s sexy, protective, laconic, and did I say sexy?

Gabi and Thatcher are a slow burn. In the same room they are combustible, without even touching each other. Just a look. The sexual tension is built up to a searing extreme. And this is just the way I like it. All of the anticipation.

A Charm Like You has a little bit of everything. I laughed, cried, and just wished it would never end. Frankly, I hope the Charmed in Texas series never ends.

I received an ARC in exchange for an honest review.

A Charm Like You goes on sale on December 25, a very excellent Christmas present.
