This is the first book I have read by Amanda Uhl and I am sure it won’t be the last. Now the first couple of chapters were slow on the uptake for me. Somewhere around the end of chapter three it finally hooked me and then I could not put my kindle down. The characters are complex and some of them are very relatable. Val (Valerie) and Charlie are the perfect main characters for this book. There were a few characters I just wanted to reach inside my kindle and slap them, and then there were a couple that I just wanted to hug. This book is a fairly fast paced story of corporate intrigue, family values, family business, lost love and unrequited love. I look forward to reading more from this author. I highly recommend this read.

PAINT, PROMOTIONS & PERFECTION
Creative genius Charlie Solanger has it all: good looks, money, intelligence, charm. And when he swoops in to save Reynolds Paint Company with a brilliant marketing campaign, he has all the ladies in the office vying for his attention. Everyone except math whiz Valerie Wilson.
Val’s not happy Charlie stole her promotion. Worse, his brand of flirtatious charm is reminiscent of her cheating ex-fiancé. So, how come she can’t get him out of her head? The more she challenges him, the more interested—and interesting—he becomes. What secrets is Charlie hiding, and who or what is behind the sudden mysterious drain on their company’s funds? The only way to find out is to join forces. Then it will be a battle of wills…and a triumph of hearts.
Here’s what advanced readers have to say about Charmed By Charlie:
“Readable, witty, fun, and the suspense and pacing are spot on.”
“I really LOVE this book!!! Its my genre, which probably helps, but I didn’t want to put it down. Just read it in one sitting. It’s easy to see the character development and their tendencies based on how they think and talk — not just for the main characters but everyone (I feel like I know families just like George’s family with the somewhat crazy mother figure with the strong personality, etc.). It’s great!!”
“I absolutely loved it!!! More! More! More! I like the mystery and intrigue. You have me hanging by the edge of my seat waiting for the next installment! It is fast-paced, funny, clever, witty, and chock-full of steamy sexual tension!”
“I love, love, love this story. The pace is great, you pulled me right in and your characters are fun and interesting. Since I’m a character driven reader, I’m invested in the world you are creating. Bravo!!!”
“The important points being brought up indicate a strong storyline being crafted: a boring boyfriend, disappointment at work, an unpredictable best friend, a hot new co-worker…all these are excellently introduced.”
“This is a manuscript worth pursuing. The setting is interesting, the characters compelling, and the writing makes me want to turn the pages!”
“Your voice is good, easy to read and entertaining, and you do banter well. Some very funny lines.”
