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

A really fun, fast-paced read. Charlie truly is charming, and Val is doing her best to cope--with Charlie (who's not only gorgeous and nice, but mega-rich) pursuing her, with her fiance, who should be perfect for her but isn't, and with her job, where someone is sabotaging her company and she's being passed over for the job she deserves. A great story with a lot happening, it kept me guessing and enjoying the read from page one to the finish. ...more

3.5 charming stars

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! ...more

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. ...more

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!!!!!!!!!

If I didn't have to get up early the next morning, I would have stayed up all night reading Charmed by Charlie. What fun! Val is smart, competent, a professional valued by her employer. She's a woman comfortable with numbers but appealingly vulnerable when it comes to romance. Still hurting from a past relationship - one that threatens future relationships - she's not about to trust or even allow herself to be attracted to the charismatic Charlie, but heart and head are in conflict and the pendu ...more

This book drew me in from the start and kept my attention throughout. Charlie and Val are complex, enjoyable characters with just the right amount of flaws to make them believable. The small mysteries through the book provide opportunities for plot twists that made the time go by quickly. I didn’t want this book to end.

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.

A fun, light romance, plenty of twists and turns! The romantic plot may have been a bit predictable, but the rest of the book was more of a surprise. There was a good cast of likable characters, even when they were not right for each other. Although there were times when Val clearly was getting manipulated by others It was hard to know who to trust along the way!

I was not, in fact, charmed. Absolutely nothing went on, and the rest of the book had a breathless pace that left no time to savor what little interaction there was.
