Twenty-five year old Charlotte “Charlie” Barrow is caught between her old life and the one she is beginning to build when she crosses paths with a handsome stranger on the subway. Not looking for romance, she closes her heart off to the possibilities of love. With a knack for mishaps, Charlie maintains her sense of humor while befriending the kind stranger who seems to be there at all the right times.

New York freelance writer, Charlie Adams, is forging his own path beyond the expectations of the society circles of his childhood. Rejecting family money, and fast-lane friends, he is snubbed by his family as he follows his own compass to a life more extraordinary.

Through a coincidence of events, they come to rely on each other for comfort. This is the tale of two Charlies learning to trust again while fighting their fates to create their own destiny.

“Review”

This is one of the best romance books I’ve read this year. The words like “sweet” and “adorable” comes to the mind when I think of this love story of two Charlies. The story started with Charlie (Charlotte) having a bad day as usual and then running into Charlie Adams, to whom she was instantly drawn. After that they bumped into each other a few times, it was as if they were destined to be together.

After one such encounter their friendship grew. They were both in love but Charlotte was in denial as Charlie was too much like her ex-now-dead-fiance and she was scared to get her heart broken again. On the other hand Charlie Adams was also scared to confess his feelings because he wasn’t sure if they were reciprocated or not. Therefore, after one steamy night they decided to be just friends, no benefits, because they didn’t want to jeopardize their friendship or complicate things even more than they already were.

The tone of the novel changes a little from there on. It was funny, quirky and I absolutely loved it when they teased each other, which they did a lot. And as for the ending I’d say it was perfect! I might be a little biased here as I love friends-turn-into-lover type stories but it really did warm my heart.
