Charlotte has spent years as the husband maker, sending every guy she dates off to enjoy marital bliss with the next girl he dates. But things have now changed, and she’s determined to use her husband-maker abilities one last time–on herself. And she finally knows exactly who she wants.
Angus has loved Charlotte since they were teenagers, but he’s tired of waiting for her to realize how good they could be. She’s broken his heart one too many times, and it’s time to move on with his life. Maybe a position halfway across the country will be just what he needs to get over her. But when Charlotte won’t let him go without a fight, Angus has to decide if he’s willing to let her in again or if she’s too late.

So, it wasn't too hard to figure out where the series was headed at the shocking end of the first book. I guess I was hoping the series would continue with some of Charlotte's friends when she found her happily ever after in the first book. I never quite got over Kyle but Charlotte did and she's determined in this book to prove to Angus that she truly loves him. After what happens between them in the second book, it seems like it should be easy for her, but it's not.

I wondered how there would be an entire book about the two of them. The story is told from both Charlotte and Angus's point of view, so we know what each of them are thinking and feeling. There were still obstacles to overcome. There were also parts that were highly entertaining and I laughed at a lot of what happened. Once Charlotte made up her mind about what she was going to do, there was no going back. She was bold and brave and I cheered her on the entire time. 

Angus grew on me, too. He made Charlotte work hard to prove herself to him. I really considered him to be like a brother to her in the first book which is why it took me a while to see him as boyfriend/husband material for her. 

I thought her story ended perfectly for her and I loved feeling closure at the end. I think if I had waited to read this series when all three books came out, I would have enjoyed it even more. I'm one that doesn't mind a spoiler or two and wouldn't have become so invested in Kyle in book one if I had realized what the entire series was about. However, this was still a fun series to read and I'm looking forward to Karey White's next book!
