I received an ARC in exchange for a honest and fair review. Cooper's Charm is a toe curling, belly fluttering story about Coop and Phoenix. I love how Lori Foster combines a sweet love story with suspense and intrigue. I think I have read almost all her books and I never get tired of reading her stories. Cooper and Phoenix are my new favorite couple and I wish I could vacation at Cooper's Charm! You will not regret one second of reading this spectacular story!

3.75 stars--COOPER’S CHARM is the first instalment in Lori Foster’s contemporary, adult SUMMER RESORT romance series. This is thirty-four year old, resort owner Cooper Cochran, and twenty-five year old, landscaper Phoenix Rose, as well as scuba instructor Baxter McNab and twenty eight year old Ridley Rose’s story lines. Told from several third person perspectives COOPER’S CHARM follows the building relationships between is thirty-four year old, resort owner Cooper Cochran, and twenty-five year old, landscaper Phoenix Rose, as well as scuba instructor Baxter McNab and Phoenix’s twenty eight year old sister Ridley Rose. Phoenix Rose is trying to escape her brutal past, a past that has left our heroine a shell of her former self. A landscaper by trade, Phoenix is about to embark on a new career as the groundskeeper for Cooper’s Charm RV Park and Resort. Meeting her new boss Cooper Cochran stirred something in Phoenix, long thought denied, an immediate attraction to a man whose own past is mired in grief and loss. What ensues is the building relationship between Phoenix and Cooper, and the potential fall-out as someone is targeting Phoenix and the people at Cooper’s Charm. Meanwhile, Phoenix’s sister Ridley Rose is struggling through issues of her own. Recently divorced, Ridley battles loneliness and loss but a decision to join her sister at Cooper’s Charm places Ridley on a path towards her future including a new job and a second chance for a happily ever after. COOPER’S CHARM is a sweet and sexy story about two sassy sisters who will turn Cooper’s Charm upside down. Lori Foster pulls the reader into an engaging and delightful tale focusing on second chances, friendships, heartbreak and love. The premise is entertaining; the romances are passionate and steamy; the characters are colorful and fun. My only complaint is the identity of the person threatening Phoenix Rose-a questionable identity in the grand scheme of villains and dastardly schemes.

cooper's charm doesn't deal with a man but a place. a place of healing for the spirit and soul. three couples arrive and find that they can move on from their respective hurts. this story is a little different from some of the other stories Lori writes but it is every bit as good. maybe even better, i enjoyed it a lot, and cannot wait for the next book she writes.

I loved everything about this book. I immediately fell in love with the characters and setting. This book is full of romance, humor, mystery, and included a sweet dog that was rescued from a terrible situation. As you read the story you couldn't help but root for the characters and hoped that whoever was trying to scare Phoenix didn't hurt her and was caught. I am looking forward to book two in the series.

So glad I used my Audible credit on this book! I've never been disappointed by a Lori Foster book, but I liked the lighter mood set by the cover and the dog on it. In true Foster fashion, there was lots of mystery, romance, sexy times, danger and family thrown together to create a story I'm sure I will listen to again (and I don't usually do that!). Phoenix and Cooper were just meant for each other. Each had something painful in their past and being together helped assuage the ache and help them get past the traumas together. Ridley Rose, who was Phoenix's sister (and who had a killer name by the way), was a bit of a surprise. She was a rather complicated character who scored the second romance in the book. I loved both of them! I loved Cooper most of all--protective guys certainly do it for me. The narration by Erin Bennett was fantastic! Definitely 5 stars and well worth reading!

Phoenix Rose and her sister Ridley have both had some tough knocks in life. Phoenix leaves her home and applies for a job at a local resort called Cooper's Charm. Delighted, she is hired and begins her healing. Of course, hunky Cooper Cochran will be integral to that healing process. Meanwhile Ridley, recently divorced, is handling her situation a bit differently. She is using her looks to love em and leave em. She misses her sister, so ends up at Cooper's Charm as well and smack into the arms of one of Cooper's employees. This is a second chance romance story for more than just Cooper and Ridley. All the employees there have some sort of baggage to get over and this is a summer of love. There is an element of mystery to the story as well. It seems someone is targeting Phoenix for some reason and Cooper is worried about her safety. Will they find out who is stalking Phoenix? Will Phoenix be able to heal at Cooper's Charm? Will Ridley's dreams finally come true? I enjoyed the story with its sassy banter, loyalty to one another, family love and romance. A warning to reader's there are some descriptive sex scenes in the book, but you can skim them and still very much enjoy this story. The publisher, HQN books generously granted my request to read this book and provided me with a copy. The opinions and ideas shared are my own.

Review: COOPER’S CHARM (Summer Resort Series) by Lori Foster Publication Date: July 31, 2018 Genre: Contemporary Romance Reviewed by: Reading in Pajamas/ Cori Rated 4.5 Stars This was one of my favorite summer reads. I just loved it. COOPER’S CHARM is about two sisters and has one main love story with a secondary love story. The characters were great, the romance was hot, the story was engaging and it had just the right amount of mystery. I wanted to visit this resort with my pup for a vacation. I highly recommend this book for romance lovers looking for a new contemporary romance series with a little mystery. *Review copy provided by NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

4 1/2 STARS! The feel good romance of the season! With a quick wit filled with delectable sass, Lori Foster brings us the story of two sisters, both strong women who have been knocked down temporarily and are fighting their way through to the other side. One was hurt by the injustice of the world, while the other had someone she loved turn on her in a despicable way. Both are trying to find themselves again and figure out where they go from here. The love and support they give each other is inspiring as they settle into a new place filled with kind, generous souls and slowly make the journey towards redemption ... and their sexy and sweet happily-ever-afters. Heartfelt, well-developed and oh so fun! Phoenix Rose was living a good life with a fiancee by her side, a successful business keeping her busy and the world at her fingertips when a burglary and assault stole away her confidence in life and most of all in herself. She walked away from everything she knew and attempted to pick up the pieces of her wounded soul. This new job at the lakeside resort Cooper's Charm is meant to center her again and give here some time away from everything she used to know to start to trust herself again. Friendly co-workers and a sexily brooding boss just might help ease her transition a little faster! Ridley Rose is worried about her little sister and when she's not getting the answers that she wants from her from afar, so she show's up unexpectedly at Cooper's Charm to check up on her. She stubbornly refuses to leave and ends up taking a temporary housekeeper job to keep herself busy and help out around the resort while she hounds Phoenix about her life. She recently had her own world turned upside down by her louse of an ex-husband, and now she's determined to live it up ... and the sexy scuba instructor giving her the eye might be just the way to do it!

It feels like every time I read, and love a Lori Foster novel and say it's my favorite, another one comes and I say it again! I love how Lori always has amazing alpha hero and also very strong heroines. You get to know these people like their your new friends and you get to enjoy watching them fall in love. It's the very best part of reading a romance noel. What makes Lori's books great are that you can find what type you like, action, comedy, straight up romance, and they all have at least one, if not two great love stories, and of course you meet a few other friends that you can't WAIT for her to write their love story. Lori's stories always are funny, sweet and definitely sexy and your can't seem to put them down. When you do get tot the end you're of course a little sad, but absolutely cannot wait for the next one!! I received an ARC in exchange for an honest review.

Look no further if you want to be charmed. This is a sweet and heartwarming story about new beginnings, with a dose of mystery and intrigue added. Only Lori Foster can weave a story like this that has you glued to the pages. It’s the perfect, feel good summer read. I voluntarily reviewed an Advanced Reader copy of this book.

OMG! I absolutely loved this book! I have loved every Lori Foster book I've ever read but this one is one of my new favs. I loved all the characters from Cooper and Phoenix to Ridley, Baxter, Maris, Joy and Daron. The storyline was so good that it kept me from putting the book down. No one writes such awesome characters, strong dialogue or a gripping story like LF. I actually loved the secondary romance as much as the main romance. This book falls into my reread category.

I loved this book!!! Phoenix Rose has trust issues from being a burglary victim, she decides to take a job at a beautiful and serene lakeside resort to work on recovering, she meets Cooper (the owner) who has his own traumatic past, together they help one another learn to live, trust and love again. Their chemistry is great, and doesn't include just these two... Ridley and Phoenix are sisters, Ridley shows up to check on her sister and meets her own sexy dilemma, Baxter. Ridley has sass and plenty of character to make you laugh out loud, especially since she is jaded from a nasty divorce... she meets her match with Baxter. They are a wonderful addition as secondary characters, their chemistry is sizzling. The story has the perfect blend of romance, suspense, comedy and "charm" to leave the reader wanting to get back to the story... I found myself eager to continue reading, wondering what would happen next, until I could finally pick the book back up. My only complaint is that it ended too quickly, I'm really hoping Lori Foster will continue the story from Cooper's Charm, letting us know about the others who work at the resort, who are friends that become family. They leave you wanting the story to continue... Lori Foster proved what an amazing author she is with Cooper's Charm, providing a great first book that hopefully (fingers crossed) be the first of many in a wonderful new series. * I received an ARC ( Advanced Reader Copy) in exchange for a fair and honest review.*

What A Great Way To Start A Series Rating: 4.5 Stars Phoenix Rose is ready for a new beginning – seems to fit her name perfectly. Cooper “Coop” Cochran has his work cut out for him – especially with an employee like Maris Kennedy. Setting the mood is in the back of my mind as I read the beginning of this story. Being out in nature is a good start. This makes it the perfect vacation read and I would love to find a place like Coop’s to sit and read this book and even maybe this series. Of course, they would also have to have his employees as well. As I get to know Phoenix and her co-workers, they have me wanting to know more. It’s a great book to sit back and enjoy. It may be listed as a romcom but our author gives us a little mystery/suspense as well. Personally, I loved the connection our main characters had as well as getting to know all the secondary characters. You want some comic relief? Phoenix’s sister Ridley is an experience. This book reminded me why Ms. Foster was my go to author when I needed something to feel good about. Her characters are always ones that I could relate to and they never seemed over the top. She always gives me the happy ending I want that will leave me with a smile on my face or even saying “aw”. And I get a conclusion to the mystery. Even with all that it still leaves me wanting more. I was not compensated nor was I required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own.

I loved it. The relationships between the characters are so real and very believable. It was fun and heart rending and so true to life. You could see this happening in real life. Can't wait for more from Lori.

Lori Foster is one of my go to authors, most of her characters are such fun. I really enjoy when she incorporates animals. The descriptions of Sugar and all of her faces just made the story all that much cuter. This definitely goes in the must read again pile. Cooper's Charm was a warm-hearted read and what I needed at the time. Highly recommended! Received ARC in exchange for voluntary honest review from NetGalley

Received an Arc via Netgalley for my honest review. This is a new series by Lori Foster and I wasn't too sure if I would like it or not because I got so used to her MMA stories, but I have to say I just loved this book and I'm looking forward to the new series. In Cooper's Charm we are introduced to Phoenix Rose and her sister Ridley and Cooper Cochran (the owner of the lakeside resort Cooper's Charm). Phoenix Rose had everything. Her own business that was doing great. She had a fiancee that she loved and her family which included her older sister Ridley. But then something happened that turned her life upside down. There was a robbery in which she had been assaulted and from then on everything changed for her. She became almost reclusive, lost her fiancee and most of her family. When she applies for a job at the lakeside resort known as Cooper's Charm she thinks its a way to relive, get her life back together and maybe stop being so fearful of everything around her. There is a great chemistry being Phoenix and Cooper., but the chemistry was different. Maybe because they both had been through something that made them cautious that there relationship took time. It wasn't instant jump into bed and be in love all at once. They took their time, they talked, and I absolutely loved the side story/romance for her older sister Ridley and Baxter (he's a scuba instructor). This again was a great story that kept me glued to the pages. I can't wait for the next one.

Sweet and engaging with a bit of suspense. Cooper's Charm had amazing characters ( with unique names which I love) a story line that kept you guessing just a bit and a love story that was written in the stars. I'm usually not a big fan of the damsel in distress, one who's broken but Phoenix was determined to get her life back and that made me adore her. Cooper giving her a chance literally changed her life, in more ways than she imagined when she showed up! The secondary characters are just as great, each with a unique personality that makes you want to know them. I look forward to what comes next in this series, book one set the bar pretty high so I can't wait to see who's next.

Phoenix Rose takes a job at a lakeside resort, trying to make a new start after being attacked at her landscape store. At Cooper’s Charm she starts to recover surrounded by friendly co-workers and a job she loves. Coop, the owner of the resort, slowly works his way into her confidence and becomes very protective of Phoenix. Phoenix is surprised when her sister suddenly shows up to check on her. Ridley is the opposite of Phoenix. Ridley is all flash, confidence and snarky; Phoenix worries about her appearance, is sweet and working on her trust issues. I enjoyed watching Coop carefully work to make Phoenix more comfortable around him, all his internal thoughts were so sensitive. And the other men she worked with soon disarmed her with their charm and sense of humor, letting her feel safe around them. Loved the way Ridley and Baxter played mind games, both leery of relationships but sexually attracted to each other and wanting to be the dominant partner in their dance around each other.

Cooper’s Charm by Lori Foster Love at the Resort #1 What a delightful introduction to a promising new series of romances set in Ohio at a lake resort that has just about anything vacationers might be looking for – sites to pitch a tent, hookup an RV or camper, rent a cabin or stay in a larger building. There are watersports, hiking, activities for children and no doubt other options not yet mentioned in the first book. The first book offers two romances (sisters find true love), a bit of a mystery that could prove life threatening, growth of characters dealing with pasts they need to work through and a whole lot of fun, romance and camaraderie. What I liked: * Phoenix’s ability to overcome the trauma she experienced – and her glasses * Ridley’s ability to give as well as take in relationships * The sister-love between Phoenix and Ridley * Baxter – a match in more ways than one for Ridley * Cooper – an alpha hunk that was a bit of a gentle giant till riled and in some ways wounded but not daunted * Maris and Daron – will they star in a book soon? * Joy and her son – wonder who she will meet? What I didn’t like: * The bad guy that was finally revealed * The local louts that seemed rather lost (do wonder if perhaps Harry might be given a chance to turn his life around) * Other than what I was supposed not to like…there wasn’t anything to diss in this book. Did I enjoy this book? Yes Will I read more by this author? Yes Do I want to read the next book in this series? Definitely Thank you to NetGalley and HQN for the ARC – This is my honest review. 5 Stars
