Every day Charlie goes to sketch a beautiful building that’s been under construction. She’s drawn to it for some reason, and it makes her paints come alive. On the day the painting is to be finished, the St. Patrick’s Day parade is in town. But a run-in between her tray of paints and a big grouchy beast in a suit has her fleeing for safety.
Warren has never wanted someone the way he wants her. One chance encounter has got him searching every inch of the city for her. She can hide, but not for long. He’ll make her his, no matter what.
Warning: This St. Patrick’s Day quickie is adorably fun and over the top. Grab your shamrocks and cozy up with this sweet treat.
Charmed is a sweet and sassy novella that I devoured. It had everything that I needed in the moment and more. We get our classic virgin, super alpha male, insta-love and some additional bonuses.
We meet Charlie when she’s on the street during a St. Patty’s Day parade, drawing the new Shade building that is under construction. Something about this building just calls to her and she can’t seem to get enough drawings of it. When the crowd literally knocks her into a handsome man with those deep blue eyes, Charlie feels the same kind of pull that she does with the building. Little did she know that that blue eyed man was about to be her entire world.
I think my favorite part of this story is how sassy Charlie is. When she runs away from Warren Shade and makes him chase her, I couldn’t get enough. Here’s this tiny petite blonde who is being chased by this former Marine though a St. Patty’s Day parade. I was just as thrilled with the chase as Warren was. Plus, he didn’t let a thing get in his way of making Charlie his.
If you are looking for a sweet, sassy and sexy novella with a deliciously possessive former marine alpha, then Charmed is that book for you. Go ahead and get it, you will love it!
