Does a girl ever really learn from her mistakes?

Detective Sergeant Megan Taylor thinks so. She once lost her heart to a man who was too charming and she isn’t about to make the same mistake again – especially not with sexy defence lawyer, Scott Armstrong. Aside from being far too sure of himself for his own good, Scott’s major flaw is that he defends the very people that she works so hard to imprison.

But when Scott wants something he goes for it. And he wants Megan. One day she’ll see him not as a lawyer, but as a man ... and that’s when she’ll fall for him.

Yet just as Scott seems to be making inroads, a case presents itself that’s far too close to home, throwing his life into chaos.

As Megan helps him pick up the pieces, can he persuade her that he isn’t the careless charmer she thinks he is? Isn’t a man innocent until proven guilty?

My Review

Charming romance with an exciting detective story!

Too Charming by Kathryn Freeman delivered as promised in the synopsis. Our hero was devilishly handsome, smooth, and sexy. Our heroine was smart, strong, and loyal to a fault. In fact, she was often TSTL because her loyalty was to her own heart, taking every step in life to avoid being hurt again by any man, never letting herself go enough to find real love. Her motto seemed to be: “Get Him Before He Gets You.”

I found myself chuckling often, and crying even more often throughout this engaging story. I had a terrible time putting it down to go about my daily responsibilities.

There was but one thing that let me down. I was left drooling to know if the HEA was well and truly real. I wanted an Epilogue to tell me how things were going two or three years down the road. I could have gladly made up my own Epilogue, but I bet the author would have thought of a better one.


About Kathryn Freeman

Kathryn started her working life as a retail pharmacist but it didn’t take long for her to realise that trying to decipher doctor’s handwriting wasn’t for her. Next she joined the pharmaceutical industry where she spent twenty happy years working in medical communications, doing a lot of writing – about medicines. However what she really wanted to write about was romance.

In 2011, backed by her family, she left the world of pharmaceutical science to begin life as a self employed writer, juggling the two disciplines of medical writing and romance. Some days a racing heart is a medical condition, others it’s the reaction to a hunky hero…

She lives with two teenage boys and a husband who asks every Valentine’s Day whether he has to bother buying a card again this year (yes, he does) so the romance in her life is all in her head. Then again, her husband’s unstinting support of her career change goes to prove that love isn’t always about hearts and flowers – and heroes can come in many disguises.
