Such a FEEL GOOD, light, sweet, and SEXY read! I always look forward to Kayley Loring’s books, but I knew this was going to be a good one – and I was not wrong. It’s got a hero who may be a bit of a charmer, but he knows when he’s found the right girl. Nico is a playful musician with a playboy past who becomes the epitome of a swoonworthy hero by the end of the book. It’s the kind of read you can devour in one sitting; that will make you feel better about your day; that has such little angst that it will leave you with a smile on your face.
The story follows Nico, former child actor turned musician who has never had any trouble getting the girl – until now. He’s got his sights set on a waitress, and she has been putting up quite the fight. Kat’s a single mom who knows there’s no future for her and a musician who is constantly on the road, charms a different woman every day, and has never had a real relationship with anyone. So though she’d consider a fling (if she had time for one), she doesn’t take Nico’s advances seriously. But when he approaches her with a job opportunity, it changes the whole dynamic.
We met Nico back in Sleeper (absolutely not necessary to have read it in order to enjoy this, but a really good book), and I’ve been looking forward to his story ever since. It was obvious even then that the flirtatious musician is hiding a heart of gold, and that just became even more apparent as Charmer progressed. Loring excels at writing heroes you will fall for – they are always all about their girl, sweet and loving with a sexy side that comes out at the right moments. Nico shares some scenes with Kat’s son that will melt your heart… and also shares some steamy scenes with Kat that will set your Kindle on fire. If you’re looking for a book that’s just a light-hearted, easy read with quality writing, then you’ve found it with this. I was lucky enough to receive an ARC (then purchased it for my collection), and am voluntarily leaving a review of this charmingly sexy read.
She serves me coffee late at night when I come around to write lyrics,
but it’s not the caffeine I’ve gotten addicted to.
We’ve got the spark, but she’s the only woman in town
who seems to be immune to my charms.
When it’s time for me to leave for my cross-country tour,
I just can’t imagine not seeing her for months.
So I offer her a job on the road with me.
Everyone in LA knows that Nico Todd has a way with songs and with the ladies.
What he doesn’t know is that I would love to let him have his way with me.
But my life can only revolve around one infuriatingly cute guy—
the six-year-old that I live with.
Imagine my surprise when Nico finds out about my little boy
and tells me to bring him and my mom on the road too.
And imagine Nico’s surprise when he realizes my son
is the biggest charmer of them all.
Have you read Sleeper yet?
We met Nico in Sleeper, and while it’s absolutely not necessary to read them in order, Sleeper is GREAT. It just released in Audible and the Kindle edition is cheap right now. If you missed my review, it’s here. Hint: it made my Best of December list.
