Take one hot mess of a woman, add “that” guy, the one women should steer away from because he is just too perfect and sit back for reading entertainment, mixed signals and the ever popular tug of war of the heart. Strap in tight, we will be entering the mind and heart of Valerie Wilson, numbers woman, and the train will not stop until that very last page…

He was oozing charm, intelligence and that face and body weren’t too bad, either, but there was no way that Valerie was going to drool over Cha

The Office meets Sixteen Candles! Charmed by Charlie is a sweet romantic comedy that is entertaining and heart-warming. From the start, you can’t help but be charmed by Charlie’s character. He is the total package but he also actually seems to care about what happens at the Reynolds Paint Company, the place where Val works. Val is not so thrilled about Charlie’s presence at the company though because he represents everything she wants to forget. She has her “safe and reliable” almost fiancé and ...more

What a charming read this was!

Charmed By Charlie is an easy, quick, and fun read.

Val is working in marketing/production and loves her job. She is in a committed, safe relationship, with a guy who has no possibility of ever breaking her heart. Because he is not charming, he is not charismatic, he is not the super hot playboy type. In fact, he is the exact opposite and she is perfectly o.k. with that. Why? B

"I hated men like the one in front of me, didn’t I?"

Valerie “Val” Wilson is a math whiz. Val is the main character in this witty and fast-paced romantic comedy. She is quirky, yet honest and dependable. She is always on a diet. Val loves her job at a large company in Cleveland, Reynolds Paint Company. She trades quips with her alter ego and relies on her “spider senses”.

She can count on numbers and complex financial reports, but can she count on men? As the book starts, Val has rebounded from a

I received an advanced reading copy of this book and I am providing my honest review. Charmed by Charlie is a fast paced story of corporate intrigue, family (business) values, and lost and unrequited love. The reader follows Valerie Wilson as she pursues a successful career at Reynolds Paint Co. while involved in a happy, if predictable, love match. Both of her pursuits are upended by smooth talking, handsome and, by all accounts, talented marketer Charlie Solanger. They are paired together as t ...more

This is the first book I have read by Amanda Uhl and I am sure it won't be the last. Now the first couple of chapters were slow on the uptake for me. Somewhere around the end of chapter three it finally hooked me and then I could not put my kindle down. The characters are complex and some of them are very relatable. Val (Valerie) and Charlie are the perfect main characters for this book. There were a few characters I just wanted to reach inside my kindle and slap them, and then there were a coup ...more

I LOVED THIS STORY!!! From the first chapters I found myself really attached to these characters. I found myself laughing out loud at points as the romance bloomed between the main characters and the sometime awkward interchanges that ensued. At the same time I was engrossed in the mystery and empathized with the main character being caught in the middle of a workplace drama. I found the characters to be real and easily identified with them. I literally could not put it down staying up all night ...more

I was privileged to receive an advanced copy of this book from the author – and I’m pleased I did! :) ‘Charming’ and romantic, Amanda Uhl’s Charmed by Charlie is an engaging and entertaining read. I enjoyed the push and pull and the dynamics / tension between Charlie (who is, well… charming!) and our heroine Val. Swoon worthy from the get go and with a satisfying conclusion, fans of light-hearted rom coms won't be disappointed!

Charmed by Charlie by Amanda Uhl is full of humorous banter with a dash of office gossip and huge misunderstandings giving you a sweet, fast-paced Rom-Com!
Valerie “Val” Wilson is dead set on receiving her hard earned promotion at Reynolds Paint Company, however, little does she know fate has a different course. When she learns that Charlie Solanger, new guy, gets her promotion she is livid. Seems like she’s the only one who isn’

Charming love story! 4.5 stars

CHARMED BY CHARLIE by Amanda Uhl is well written, and her words seemed to flow on the pages. A real page turner! This is the second time that I read a story by this author, and I liked the first one, a paranormal, but much preferred this one! I must say that I'm pleasantly surprised because CHARMED BY CHARLIE is so sweet and fun to read. It's fast paced and romantic with a dash of humor. A bit predictable, but still a delight to read

Once again, Amanda has gotten me to read a genre I don't normally find interesting and once again I wasn't disappointed because of the strong character development. As others have said, the character development is excellent and anybody who has ever loved or been in a work environment should be able to relate to most, if not all of them in some way.

Strong character development does have a trade off, and as another reviewer noted that means that the first few chapters take some time to establish

Charmed by Charlie is an easy and fun read. The story has wit, suspense, and romance, of course! In the first few chapters, the characters are well developed to provide a solid foundation for the amazing roller coaster that follows! Best of all, you don't have to work in an office or a pain company to relate to the characters and their story. Charlie is really the total package and truly does seem to care about what happens to Reynolds Paint Company. While, Val sees what we see in Charlie, she s ...more

Fast paced and engaging Charmed by Charlie draws you into the life of Val, who just doesn't know who she can believe. Still hurting from the betrayal by her former fiancée she is slow to trust and who can blame her? Every woman is gushing over Charlie, every woman that is except Val. She thinks he is too charming. What is his secret? Light romance and workplace drama combine for a great read! I was given an ARC in exchange for an honest review and I thoroughly enjoyed reading it!

Amanda Uhl has a fresh, contemporary voice and her writing flows really well. I enjoyed Val's story and the quick pace, the hints of intrigue as well as the hero Charlie. He sounded hot, hot, hot! I had a tough time with a few of the secondary characters, particularly George. I was yelling at Val to just get away from him already, he's a dud and you've got hot, hot, hot Charlie! A sign of a great story: reader reaction. I'm looking forward to reading all of Amanda Uhl's books.

This book was such an easy read for me. So many familiar places in Cleveland that I know. The characters were so real and authentic. Once I picked it up I could not put it down. Charmed by Charlie is filled with many different elements of romance, suspense and intrigue! A very feel good book--defiantly a five star rating!!!!!!!!!

I loved this book! It was an enjoyable read, that I wanted to not put down. Val, who is smart, and a hard worker, is innocent and sweet. Charlie, a handsome millionaire, used to getting what he wants. I hope to read more from Amanda Uhl.

Received an ARC for my fair review for netgalley. This was an ok book. I personally do not like books, where heroine's friend ends up with boyfriend and she is ok with it. Val has a steady boyfriend, so even though she is attracted to Charlie, she tries not to be, she want the comfort of George. Her friend does not get along with George or vice versa, but it is really because they are attracted to each other. Every other woman, wants Charlie, but he wants Val. Eventually everything does come out ...more

This is the first book by this author I have read. I got to say I am impressed. This was a sweet romantic story with a roller coaster of emotions. I was impressed with the authors style of writing. She did not rush the book, instead took the time to develop and tell the story. It definitely had you guessing in some parts. The characters were fun, witty and entertaining. Val really struggled with trust issues. But still did what she could to help others. I would recommend this book. It is a cozy ...more

4 Stars! The story really pulled me along, and I couldn't help but root for the heroine. I really would have liked to see the hero's point of view in several places, because it read like an old-fashioned romance where we never know what's going on with the hero. There were misunderstandings and corporate intrigue, but it was clear that the heroine was in love in spite of herself, lol. Charlie was too much of an enigma for me, seeing that we only saw him through the heroine's eyes. Still, the boo ...more

Val is a successful basket case. The bits of OCD behavior through the story are added in perfectly. What did drive me crazy was hearing over and over again the descriptions of how good looking Charlie is. Personally I was bothered by the way she doesn't talk about being attracted by how he acts or treats her. Only the way he looks and it started to get old. So many things are crammed into this story that almost, but not quite, have your head spinning. Some of the scenes were laugh out loud and k ...more

Enjoyable romance with an interesting storyline.
There are two strands to the story. The first is of a rich playboy meeting his much poorer soul mate who already has a boyfriend but unusually for this kind of story the boyfriend also ends up matched. The second storyline is of the company where they meet and the ups and downs of this too. Lows so down that the owner is sued over the issues involved.
I did enjoy the novel but didn't really feel the pace of the writing picked up when the story got e

I'm not sure I was as charmed by Charlie as Val was. I was entertained enough to keep reading, but I did not feel the connection between the main characters as In had hoped In would. It was a light read and made it easy to want to read on, but there wasn't much going on in the character development. I wanted it to be more than it was.
