My Rating:

Charmed, Texas, is a close-knit small town where people’s dreams of love can come true. That’s not to say that some people aren’t still waiting, and dreaming . . .

By day, Allie Greene stays busy with her family diner, and keeping tabs on her teenage daughter. What’s really exhausting Allie, however, are the nights. Not that she minds Bash Anderson unbuttoning her naughty desires—if only in her dreams. But what was he doing there at all? He’s her best friend, and a father figure to her girl. Talk about awkward. Talk about OMG-heat-and-fireworks that are flipping fifteen years of normal upside down. And now, when Allie needs him as a friend more than ever, logic doesn’t stand a chance against his lips and irresistible deep-blue eyes . . .

Sure, Bash has fantasized about Allie, but there’s no way he’d act on it. She and her daughter are the closest thing to family he’s ever known. With the exception of one drunken moment fifteen years ago, he and Allie have stayed on this side of the line—until that impulsive kiss of hers knocked him on his butt. That’s just one hurdle. Not only does Allie need Bash’s help to save her diner, but his apiary is in trouble, too. To stir the pot further, they’ve been roped into vying for the town’s Honey King and Queen contest—a sweet event that’s making them closer than ever. Something’s bound to come undone. Bash just hopes it’s not the friendship he’s worked so hard to hold on to.

My Thoughts

Another super cute read from Sharla Lovelace set in Charmed, Texas!

I loved the best friends to more premise and the undeniable friendship, love, and chemistry between these two. Bash and Allie have been friends since childhood and he’s been the one constant in her and her daughter’s life since she got pregnant as a teen. It was impossible not to root for them from the start.

Add in another visit to the super charming town of Charmed with all of the recurring characters from the previous two books in the Charmed in Texas series and you’ve got the perfect setting for a sweet yet passionate story.

Once a Charmer has all of the elements that made me love Sharla Lovelace’s writing. The quirky small town setting, great secondary characters, a very realistic and vulnerable heroine, a sexy honorable hero and an incredibly realistic romance sprinkled with just a touch of magic honey.

I can’t wait to read the 4th book in this series.

  1. I know she wrote a lot of sweet romances! I don’t think I’ve tried one before, but small town and best friends to lovers is just so cute.
