Overview

Even in a quirky small town like Charmed, Texas, there’s always room for love to take you by surprise . . .
 
Gabi Graham might have hit the proverbial rock in rock-bottom. Hitting the single scene after ten years is hard enough. Finding out that her cheating ex-husband and his new barely-legal fiancée are expecting—that’s enough to drive Gabi over the edge and into a neighboring town’s divorce support group. It’s not really her thing to listen to anonymous strangers bash their exes, but at least there are cookies. And a sexy fellow newcomer who ignites her long-dormant libido. Spending a few lustful, post-meeting moments in Hot Guy’s truck can’t hurt. Unless, of course, Hot Guy turns out to be Thatcher Roman—her best friend’s brother and Gabi’s silent business partner.
 
Thatcher had no idea that the wildflower farm owner he’s been doing business with over email is the nameless woman who’s barreled into his life and his fantasies. He and Gabi have a new venture to run, a sister and best friend in the middle, and enough sparks between them to light up the entire town of Charmed. Given her past, it’s no wonder smart, gorgeous Gabi has trust issues. But maybe what they’ve found is more than just coincidence and chemistry. It might even be the beginning of one sweet, amazing second chance . . .

Ok, so I’m not a huge contemporary fan for whatever reason. However, when I started this book, Gabi’s pain and everything she was going through made me really feel for her. At one point in the book, I might have even choked up for a second...I really liked Thatcher as well. I had expected his POV in this book as so many books give both POVs nowadays. I think it helped me to like him and the book more without his POV. Anyways, I really loved their story. However, the reason for 4 stars instead of 5 were the few issues I had with the book overall. First, there were a number of couples that interacted with throughout the story and my perception was that the author assumed the reader had already read the books because their interactions and parts in the book had me confused and not really sure why they were in some of the roles they were in. A slight bother was that all of the males in the book were “gorgeous’, a fact brought up a couple of times. The big thing that knocked this from a 5 to a 4 was there was a mystical element at almost the end of the book that didn’t need to be there to wrap up the climax of the book the author wrote, not to mention how the stories themselves were wrapped up with the mystical interaction. It really took some of my love of the story away from me. Regardless, I look forward to reading more from this author. I highly recommend. **I voluntarily read and reviewed this book

Rcvd an ARC at no cost to author..(netgalley) I started reading this book come to discover that it is part of a series and I was way left behind. This apparently is the 5th book, and you know what you kind of needed to read the others to know what was really happening. That said the book wasn't bad it was actually captivating, but Gabi drove me a little nuts I mean I felt bad for her and everything that she went thru that was heartbreaking. But her back and forth with Thatcher kind of drove me up the wall, I guess it comes because I am pretty much a decisive person that when I have others in a see-saw bugs me but I tried to give her a break again due to the craziness her life went thru, however I wont be reading the beginning of the books not that interested.

Sharla Lovelace concludes her irresistibly delightful romp through the small town set novels, Charmed in Texas, with A Charm Like You. After Gabi Graham finds out that her dishonest ex-husband and his too young fiancée are expecting a baby, she decides to go to a divorce support group where she discovers there’s a lot more than cookies and ex bashing. During her first meeting she spends some time with a super Hot Guy with a Clark Kent name tag. After her next meeting she goes to second base with said Hot Guy in his truck. But the next time they see each other turns out to be a bit disastrous when she discovers Hot Guy is actually Thatcher Roman, her silent partner and her best friend’s brother. Even though they’ve both been burned, the chemistry between them is undeniable and Thatcher is willing to give them a chance. Can he convince his reluctant business partner? Lovelace writes with an enchanting combination of wit, humor and sexiness. And speaking of sexy, who would fall for a hero who is helpful, thoughtful, caring, protective, willing to put his past issues in the past and take a chance on love? Thatcher is a perfect book boyfriend. Unfortunately Gabi’s trust issues were seemingly unsurmountable and her reluctance to take a leap throughout the book grated a bit. I loved this town and series! I'm so glad Sharla included a super happy ending for all of the characters. It’s sad it has come to an end but I’ll remember these characters for a very long time. A Charm Like You is book #5 in the Charmed in Texas series by author Sharla Lovelace. It is a standalone contemporary romance, told from both points of view.

Fantastic read. This is my first Charmed book. I will be reading the others. This is Thatcher and Gabi's story. I laughed, I cried ,and many memories. They meet at a divorce support group meeting with no real names used. Chemistry between them is all over the place, until Gabi finds out he his her best friends brother and her business partner. Hurt makes her think she could lose her business and best friend if she pursues the relationship. She tries to stay away and only gets things more messed up. Their are lots of twist and turns til their HEA. Good storyline and well written makes this a great read.

I absolutely adored this addition to the Charmed in Texas series. Gabi and Thatcher are strong, fun, complex characters and their story is sexy and emotional. When they first met at a divorce support group one town over from Charmed they had no idea they both had ties to this wonderful quaint small town or the quirky characters that reside there. When she finds out Gabi tries to resist for various reasons but the chemistry is too strong to stay away. Grab a copy and enjoy the journey these two take to find their HEA. I highly recommend it.

I had fun reading this book. Lanie’s world is crashing after her husband leaves her for a younger woman which shakes the foundation of her life. As she works to rebuild, she reaches out to a divorce support group where she encounters ‘hot guy.’ She believes she needs a just sex relationship especially since she is so afraid to trust and let someone back into her heart and world. Thatcher is captivated by this woman at the group. He is so very structured in his life and ‘Lois’ seems to have that spark that he needs. When their worlds collide in an unexpected way, will these two ‘strangers’ find a new path to love? Lanie and Thatcher were a joy to read and experience. Their meeting is funny and perfect for this duo. With their incredible family and friends around them, this is an amazing cast of characters that provided great depth to this tumultuous journey. Truly a perfect escape. I voluntarily read an ARC of this book and this is my honest review.

The problem with staring a series at book 5, is that you have huge gaps of not only the characters in the previous stories, but also about their lives and the interactions amongst themselves. Sadly , that was the case for me in this story. I didn’t really get into the book until half way through. All that said, the main plot was very touching. Gabi Graham and Thatcher Roman are two individuals that have lost in love , are trying to find a way to move forward, and meet by chance in a support group. Little did they know that 1- their chemistry would be instantaneous, and 2- that their lives were already intertwined. It was at times, heartbreaking, but also funny, and heartwarming. Because of the gaps, it was a 3.5 for me. But since that’s on me, and I respect the efforts authors put into their trade, I will give it a 4 star rating. I was entrusted this copy by Netgalley. The opinions expressed are solely my own.

Another great romance in Charmed, Texas! Gabi and Thatcher's story is fun, sexy, filled with romance and a little heartbreak. My heart broke for Gabi and her problem with infertility. Being a woman myself who has been through it, the way the author wrote about it was dead on. I felt Gabi's turmoil and the way Thatcher handled her fear and doubt in herself was AWESOME!! It also helped that he was HOT!! LOL!!
