I really loved reading Charming. It was just a nice, relaxing read that wasn't filled with too much drama. Asher said all the right thing from beginning to end to make a girl swoon. I loved the banter between the two lead characters and there were parts that just had me cracking up laughing. I think I could read these characters all day and even wouldn't mind reading about some of the other characters like Asher or Ella's best friends. This is the first book I've read by Jennifer Miller and I ca ...more

Get ready to sigh and swoon with this sexy adaptation of a classic fairytale. Ms. Miller gives us her version of Cinderella with CHARMING. It was a dreamy escape to Cabo San Lucas, Mexico, and was the quintessential vacation read!

Gabriella (“Ella”) is our modern-day Cinderella. She’s a CEO for a marketing firm in NYC, and by the time you get to chapter 3, you will want to fist-bump her and call her your best friend.

Asher is the sexiest Prince Charming you will ever read, and I don’t think I’ll

A perfect love story!

This was such a fun book to read! I loved every minute of Asher and Ella's story. I truly adored Asher he was so kind, loving and took such joy in making Ella happy. I loved seeing their relationship grow from friendship to love as they spent time together!
Ella was this spunky, carefree spirit and she really cared about her friends.
This was such a sweet, modern day fairytale and Jennifer Miller did a wonderful job writing this book! I'll be looking for more of her books!!

This was just a fun, sexy, hilarious, make you feel good story. I was truly entertained and hooked from the start. I loved Asher & Ella's relationship; they had just an amazing connection from the first moment they laid eyes on each other. And seriously how many swoon-worthy moments did Asher have? Loved him. So many awesome moments throughout the book - I can't even begin to name them all. But, the very last few paragraphs had to be my most favorite part of the book. Didn't see that coming at a ...more

A modern take on a fairytale!

Loved this modern take on the Cinderella fairytale! The missing pink flip flop was a great touch ;) Loved that the female lead character Ella made that empowered speech to the board and really made them think about what they were doing. And if course, having Prince Charming come busting in didn’t hurt! Can’t wait to read more!!

Wish I had more stars to give!

I wasn't sure about this when I first seen it because it's a retake of Cinderella with a twist, but I'm so glad that I took a chance. It touches some of the points of Cinderella which I loved and also has it's own personality I guess you can say. I enjoyed every second of it and didn't want to put it down! It's definitely a must read!!

Loved it!

Charming is such a cute love story! The friendship between Ella and Katie is touching throughout the story. They lean on each other and their drunk conversations are hilarious! The attraction between Ella and Asher is instant and grows into something neither was expecting. Great ending too!

I’m alway happy to see someone take a classic and put there own spin on it. Jennifer did a great job with Ella and Asher,my only compliant is that the book wasn’t longer.

This was such a cute story! I love Ella and Katie's friendship. And Asher was just perfect. I would have loved to have his POV in the story also. But still a really well written book.

I absolutely loved this book. It has its own flair to the classic Cinderella story that makes it unique. It definitely has its funny moments as well. I’m still chuckling over the shark incident.

Happy Reading 🤓

What a fantastic book. No words can describe how beautifully this story was written. So many emotions that the author forces the reader to feel. I was captured from the very first page right up to the ending. I went from laughing so hard that I almost peed myself laughing so hard. Snarky, hilarious conversations between Ella and Katie her best friend had me rolling over and laughing. The world wind romance between Ella and Asher were so swoony. They are the prime examples that love at first sigh ...more

I am a huge fan of retellings, which is bizarre since I’m not a huge fan of the originals. Anyways, I digress. I was intrigued by the premise of this book and fell in love with it almost as soon as I started reading. I am sleep deprived and emotionally drained this morning because of this book. But the end of this book is just wow and I must have more because while everything is neatly wrapped up you don’t get to know so much.
Anyways, the book follows Gabriella, Ella, through the few weeks after

Reviewed on behalf of 2 girls who love books blog.

Charming by Jennifer Miller is a romantic comedy standalone novel and as the cover says it really is ‘A modern day sexy Cinderella story’. I absolutely loved every single minute of it. It was extremely well written and I instantly loved the characters. There were times of laughter, sadness and heart-warming moments.

The story is about Gabriella, Ella to her friends! She wins an all-expense paid fairy-tale vacation but what was meant to be a roma

Charming is a sexy, fun, fantastic, and hilarious twisted retelling of the fairytale Cinderella. I wasn't sure exactly what to expect when I glanced at the cover, but I can state with 100% confidence that this book worth the read. Miller writes such a fun story with a with characters you love to hate, characters so sweet your heart aches, and characters so hilarious their comments will stick with you for a looong time (there's never a good time for certain things, right Katie?!).

A Cinderella story at its best!
Charming by Jennifer Miller is indeed a modern day sexy Cinderella story. I absolutely loved this book. You have your sexy, too good to be true Prince Charming (who’s a famous actor), Cinderella (CEO of her own marketing firm), Fairy Godmother (a great listener on an airplane); the stepmother and stepsister from hell; a pink flip flop (aka glass slipper), and of course an “And They Lived Happily Ever After” ending.

3.5 stars!!

This was a one click read for me! I adore Cinderella stories. I was sucked in from the first few moments and I LOVED, Loved chapter 3!
The middle of the story was so so, leaving me slightly bored with the cliche 'getting to know each other' jargon. I really wanted more drama! The beginning started off so strong... I was hoping it would carry throughout the story, but I enjoyed the very last few paragraphs very much!
Jennifer Miller is not a new author to me, and actually I have read

Do you believe in magic?

Well, I certainly do after reading Charming by Jennifer Miller. This story is quite the departure from her Deadly Sins series, but it's no less amazing!!!

Things don't go as planned for Ella and she finds herself on her honeymoon with her best friend drinking marguritas at a resort bar. But fate has different plans for her, when her eyes meet world famous action star Asher Charming's, she can't help but feel an instant pull toward him.

I really liked this modern day sexy Cinderella story! Jennifer Miller was a new to me Author. I will for sure be reading more! It was pretty steamy in spots, but it wasn't too much like some books are. This had a good story line. Cinderella with a twist! I laughed and teared up a bit in places. I would recommend this to anyone who likes a bit of steam in their romances, and of course to anyone who likes a good Cinderella story!

I loved getting to know Asher and Ella. They are both fun characters. He's the hot movie star and shes just coming out of a relationship. I found the fairytale part of the story cute and entertaining.
I love that the story was told in a unique way. Ella was telling someone about her experience on her trip.
