A Charm Like You by Sharla Lovelace

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...

Gabi is trying to figure out where she goes from here. With a cheating husband about to get married and have a baby, Gabi thinks she's hit rock bottom. But when even more is thrown her way, she will have to rely on her friends and family to get her through.

Thatcher is known for not being very fun or easy going. When he finds himself at a divorce support group, he doesn't expect to be attracted to anyone. With his constant worrying about his siblings and running the family business, he doesn't think he has time to follow that attraction.

When it turns out that they actually know each other, both have to decide if their attraction is worth it or if business trumps their feelings. When a series of unfortunate events (or fortunate, depending on how you look at it) occurs and the gang has to band together, everyone will have to decide if the strangeness that is their little town is real or just their imagination.

I really enjoyed watching the development and thought process of Gabi and Thatcher. It was a slow burn that just got hotter and hotter. You could really see them processing the situation and their relationship. I also loved how both were shoved out of their comfort zone. I do wish that there was more of a resolution between Gabi and her ex-husband, but I'm not sure what it would be.

This was a very enjoyable read and I loved the quirkiness of the town and its people.

This is the fifth book in the series, and although this was my first introduction to Charmed, I enjoyed it no end. I recognised that there were elements which I had missed by not having read earlier books, but could still really appreciate Gabi and Thatcher's story. I definitely plan on going back to find out the detail in earlier books.

From their first meeting it was clear that there was amazing chemistry between the two of them, and then we are along for the ride. Gabi has a lot of baggage that she is working through, which holds her back. She is also pursuing a new venture which means a lot to her, so extra complications really cause her to be diffident. Thankfully, those around her are supportive, and Thatcher is determined.

A really lovely read, with the beauty of community thanks to the small town, people who care, and a really hot romance – delicious reading, thank you.

I enjoyed this book. Gabi is a strong person who's had more than her fair share of bad luck. Her cheating ex has more than done her wrong, so much so, that she's wary to start a new relationship. Thatcher is hardheaded and knows what he wants, and Gabi is what he wants.

Another great installment in the Charmed in Texas series and I'm hopeful there will be many more to come.
