This is a spotlight I am hosting especially today, because it is the release day for Amanda Uhl's new book, Charmed by Charlie! I have loved this author's past work and highly recommend any book she writes. See below for buy links and advanced reader insight into this humorous new contemporary romance.
Everybody loves marketing whiz Charlie Solanger…except the woman he really wants.
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.

Advanced Reader Insights
“Author Amanda Uhl lets us in on the romantic tension and intrigue from the very first page. All the reader has to do is hold on for the ride.”
“I really LOVE this book!!! It’s 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!”
“The voice is good, easy to read and entertaining. The author does banter well. Some very funny lines.”
