1900s Kansas

Ever since Charlotte Andrews bested four-eyed Harrison Gray in a shooting competition when they were teenagers, he decided a tough, show-off girl like Charlie didn't need him to look after her. Now a teacher at the local school, Harrison learns Charlie intends to marry a neighbor who comes from a long line of no-good troublemakers and, for some inexplicable reason, it falls to him to talk some sense into her...if she has any under that tomboy exterior.

Their heated confrontation unfortunately takes place right as a bad storm is coming on and, in the melee of arguing and taking shelter, Harrison's glasses are knocked off his face and broken when Charlie's horse crushes them under a hoof. Harrison and Charlie may have their differences, but she can see from his panic that the loss of his glasses is a blow to him. She volunteers to help him at school until his new pair of special order glasses arrive despite knowing the one place she can't best Harrison is in the classroom. Readers will have fun being introduced to the characters of Melissa's Teaville Moral Society series!

Sassy Charlotte—aka Charlie Andrews—can out-shoot, out-ranch, out-smart, and out-maneuver any man hands down! Harrison Gray; a quiet, unassuming, glasses-wearing teacher has always admired her from afar. When a tornado throws these two together, there’s more than storm clouds brewing! The author’s wit and humor with underlying romance in the mix makes for one wild ride of a story. Along with quirky characters, a strong love for God and small town living, it will leave you wanting more; don’t miss this one!

Five stars out of five Engaging the Competition was an enjoyable quick read. The plot was believable and fun to read, but it was the characters I loved. Charlie Andrews is a competitive, tomboy girl who excels at out doing the boys, whether it be shooting or ranching. Her nature has left her with few choices when circumstances developed requiring her to marry. Her insecurities and struggles are realistic and relatable, especially her struggle between family loyalty and wanting a man she thinks she can’t have. Harrison Gray is not your average western hero. He is a man with tons of book smarts and a disabling amount of blindness without his glasses. I love how he’s not the typical hero who is great at everything, but a real man who wants to be respected and has carefully hidden insecurities. If you are looking for a cute quick-read, I recommend this one.

What a unique and absolutely wonderful novella this was! The author did such a good job at creating two characters who have flaws, but are utterly likable, as well. Harrison and Charlotte (Charlie) have great chemistry, a problematic history, and I had to laugh at the fact that their first kiss wasn’t all that great for them! I really enjoyed this story and loved watching these two characters grow so much from beginning to end. I am really looking forward to the first book in this author's upcoming Teaville Moral Society series, as it will have a character who is introduced in this novella. I think she will have a very interesting story.
