I've had this book on my kindle for a while. I was saving it as a reward for completing some other tasks. I adore Sharla Lovelace's Charmed in Texas series. I knew Charmed at First Sight was going to be a great read and it did not disappoint!
A hot mess runaway bride and a smokin' hot biker lock eyes at a red light. Lord have mercy . . . is our little town of Charmed, Texas ready for this?
Never one to do things by the book, Micah Roman couldn't just chalk it up to bridal jitters, or even quietly call off her wedding to her long-time fiancé. No, she has to high-tail it out of the church sporting a dress that cost more than her car, and jump on the back of a smoking-hot stranger's motorcycle. Her knight in all-black is headed to a town called Charmed, so that's where she'll go and try to lay low. Except their appearance raises plenty of eyebrows . . . and a sudden, intense attraction she has no business exploring.
Who knew picking up a damsel in distress would lead to lust at first sight? Leo McKane headed to Charmed prepared to deal with some family secrets--including his status as long-lost brother. This runaway bride is an unexpected distraction his set agenda and loner lifestyle doesn't include. She's everywhere he turns, getting under his skin with her quirky, headstrong ways and eyes he can't forget. But when Micah's jilted ex comes looking for her and opens up his shady past, Leo knows he has a choice to make.
They both do.
Run to safer ground again? Or take a leap that their untrusting hearts are wary to take.
Charmed at First Sight is a story of not losing who you are in the mist of longing to be loved. It's a fun, fast-paced read that doesn't take itself too seriously.
Micah has taken the lead as my new favorite character. She's witty, sarcastic, and undeniably lovable. I laughed out loud several times.
And Leo...*sigh*. Leo is everything a hot man on the back of the motorcycle should be*. He's not the typical, Sons of Anarchy style biker. He's rough and tumble with a good heart.
*I happen to be married to a hot man who rides a motorcycle so I know what I'm talking about!
Charmed at First Sight is the fourth book in the series. The story is easy to follow as a standalone, but I particularly enjoyed the interaction with characters from the previous books. Micah makes friends very quickly, but the relationships have an authentic feel and add depth to the story.
I would wholeheartedly recommend Charmed at First Sight (and the rest of the Charmed in Texas series) to anyone who likes flirty, sexy romance set in small-towns with a quirky cast of characters.
