She serves me coffee late at night when I come around to write lyrics,
but its not the caffeine Ive gotten addicted to.

Weve got the spark, but shes the only woman in town
who seems to be immune to my charms.

When its time for me to leave for my cross-country tour,
I just cant imagine not seeing her for months.

So I offer her a job on the road with me.

What a great read! I have looked forward to Nicos story since reading Sleeper, and it did not disappoint! Unique, funny, quality main characters as well as a fantastic supporting cast and excellent storyline. Kayley Loring has once again written a feel-good story with some outright funny moments. From the first chapter I was hooked on this page turner.

Charmer was such a fun and engaging story. It really gave me the happy feels when I was reading it. Kayley Loring has quickly become a go-to

I will never tire of reading Kayley Loring's words. Her ability to create characters and situations that make us laugh and cry; gasp in shock and swoon in utter lust is awe-inspiring.

Now that Shane and Willa (read Sleeper for their story; it's my fave!) have their HEA, it's Nico's turn! Seeing his sister with his best friend be so happy and in love triggers something in him which is amplified by the diner waitress he is besotted with.

Everything that Kat does is for the

5 Star review of Charmer by Kayley Loring

Kayley Loring is a relatively new author to me. This is Nico and Kats story with an adorable little boy called Tate.

This was a story that had me riveted from the first to the last chapter. It made me laugh, it made me cry and was an entertaining read.

I fell hard and fast for Nico, he was totally swoon worthy. I loved how infatuated he became with Kat and then with her son Tate; it was truly heart warming.

This is a story of breaking down walls, of

Charmer by Kayley Loring
Musician and the waitress, 5 stars

I would like to start off that Kat is so much more than a waitress, shes a lady boss. But to learn more about that than you need to read Charmer. I absolutely enjoyed Charmer. Loring pulled me in with Nico and his fun self who falls for Kat who is oh so serious. Not because she wants to be but because she has to be. I sped through Charmer like the pages were on fire and when I finished, I sighed in contentment. I cannot wait to see what

Kayley Loring strikes again with Charmer! This swoony romance loaded with humor and emotion will have you captivated start to finish. Guaranteed. I already adored Nico from the previous book, but now Im completely in love with this man. This former playboy did not know what hit him when Kat came into his life.
He went from having no real connections to falling harder than anyone else, both for Kat and her son (who happens to be the cutest little guy ever!) Their slow build to becoming one of the

Such a FEEL GOOD, light, sweet, and SEXY read! I always look forward to Kayley Loring's books, but I knew this was going to be a good one - and I was not wrong. It's got a hero who may be a bit of a charmer, but he knows when he's found the right girl. Nico is a playful musician with a playboy past who becomes the epitome of a swoonworthy hero by the end of the book. It's the kind of read you can devour in one sitting; that will make you feel better about your day; that has such little angst ...more

Ive been in a reading funk with everything going on. I started to read Charmer because I love her books so much and hoped it would stop this funk I am in. This was the PERFECT book to take me away from life for a while. I love Kayleys books for a very specific reason...she gives us these easy & super steamy romances that dont have any unnecessary angst or drama and that completely steal your heart. Yes, her characters have to overcome some odds and difficulties but its done is such a mature ...more

I just devoured Charmer by Kayley Loring, and am asking myself where has this author been my whole life? (I have immediately gone and downloaded Sleeper, needing to find out more about Willa and Shane since seeing them as epic secondary characters in Charmer!)
But, back to Charmer, back to this beautiful story that had me chuckling and then feeling totally side-tackled in the most magnificent way as humor and emotion collided on the page in a way that kept me hooked, and kept me enthralled till

I must say I really enjoyed reading this book and seeing how this played out. I really like this author writing style and this title and cover is awesome.

Nico is a charmer but can sometimes act like a moody teenager he's also a great loyal and genuine guy too. He moved to town to be closer to his sister and Shane. Nico has started coming into the

Sorry Shane and Keaton, but youve both been demoted to #2 and #3 on my Kayley Book Boyfriend list.

I LOVED every single thing about this book. Nico is a charmer, he is talented, sweet, caring, loving, protective. It is impossible not to fall in love with him. Kat is a single mom to the most adorable little boy, she is hard working and insanely talented. She is loving and caring and strong. There is so much chemistry between Nico and Kat from the moment the met. Kat tries to deny it, but you can

I am totally smitten, in love, and CHARMED by Kayley Loring's newest book!!

Nico Todd hasn't been looking for long term, but it is said, when you find the ONE, you just know. Nico is drawn to the new waitress at a diner close to his home and no matter what he tries to tell himself (which his inner monologues are hilarious) he can't tear himself away from the beautiful, red-lipped woman, even when she turns down his charm.

Kat Dempsey works hard at avoiding Nico's flirting. Yes, she isn't a

I've been in the desperate need of a feel good romance with all the feels along with some hilarious moments, and this book checks everything off that list and then some!!

This is my first read by this author so I didn't realize it was part of a series -- which I'm definitely going back and reading -- but we are introduced to Nico, who after seeing his own sister get her HEA, wants to find his own lady love. When he meets the fiesty waitress, Kat, he can't stop thinking about her and instantly

I LOVE LOVE LOVE this book! I've been dyin for Nico's book and Kayley did not disappoint. This book had all the funny, the love, the steam, the fantastic supporting characters, the swoony all in love hero.

We met Nico in Sleeper, also is a fantastic book between his best friend Shane and Nico's sis, Willa. Nico is a songwriter, and he has been writing in this coffee shop totally falling for Kat, who is a waitress there. I love his inner thoughts about falling for her, which is unusual because he

First read from Kayley but wont be my last! Nico meets Kat and sparks fly instantly, but Kat keeps him at arms length because she has a secret in the form of a six-year old. Thanks to chance, Nico ends up meeting Kats son and doesnt run away, therefore starting their love story. Not wanting to leave but having to go on tour, Nico decides to give Kat the offer of a lifetime that would help launch her career to go on tour with him. Its definitely a learning curve for this couple, who continue to ...more

This was such a great book. I loved Shane, Shane was everything but Im sorry Shane you need to move on over for Nico. Holy moly was he amazing. He was nothing like I expected him to be. I kind of expected a cocky, full of himself rockstar type, but instead we get and incredibly sensitive, loving, sexy songwriter and Kat, well Kat is just as amazing even if she didnt give Nico a chance at first and together they are absolutely perfect. There were so many moments in this book, like in Sleeper that ...more

This is my first book of Kayley Loring and I was not disspointed in the least. I have a special place in my reading heart for single parent books and this was a great and sweet story to be read.

There were some parts that I didn't care for, but you can't please everyone. There were some parts that I would have liked elaborated more on, like the epilogue as well as the final chapter, it seemed wrapped up to fast.

This slow burn was cute and enjoyable read. I loved the was Nico for the beginning that Kat was special. I loved how he went out of this way to spend more time with her and in the end her family.
Kat was a complex woman. She was smart, funny and talented non more way that one. Together they were explosive Nd I loved that when things started to get bumpy they didn't run and hide but managed to understand that they are worth all the pain if it means they are together in the end.

Nico and Kat are so deliciously funny and steamy together. Single waitress mom meets child star turned famous musician. Whee that was a mouth full and a lot of information in one sentence. Haha.

This book has a full cast of characters, keeping my interest high. This read is a touching, traditional storyline that made my heart happy. Kat the mother is amazing and her mother is hilarious, only to be outdone by Nicos filterless grammie. The quirkiness of several of the characters really made this

This book is a total joy from start to finish! Nico, Kat, Tate and assorted grandmothers, had me laughing and swooning in equal measures throughout! A wonderful romcom is always a gift but there are times when this is especially so, and this is just such a time. The dialogue is spot on and even had me laughing aloud in the long queue for the chemist yesterday. Bliss. It is witty, warm, well written and so romantic. I loved it 😍❤❤❤❤❤ ...more

Nico was charming, loving, sweet and funny. Hes a total package deal when it comes to book boyfriend. I loved the characters in this story. Grammie had me in Sleeper but calling Nico Cookie just warms my heart and has me laughing so hard when she calls him ass canoe 😂.

This is a light read, just what I needed at the time, highly recommend this romcom.

Kat, single mom, works as a waitress in a restaurant. Preferably the night shift, so by day shes there for her son Tate.

Nico, singer, comes by to that restaurant almost every night Kat works as hes intrigued by her and wants to date her.
Nico is preparing to go on tour for 3 months, but he doesnt want to leave Kat, so he offers her a job to tour with him.
