My Rating: 4 Stars
Ever had a crush on a famous star in your younger days? You know the crush, you imagine meeting, they fall head over heels for you, etc., etc. Not even going to ask if you wrote your first name with their last name… Charlotte is all grown up, all business with a side of fangirl and, to be honest, if she didn’t have bad luck, she may not have any luck at all when it comes to the famous Des Bannerman, movie star, hot guy, teen crush. One fiasco after another happens until Charlotte has a restraining order against her, from good ole Des. Did she deserve it? Was it fate laughing in her face, frustrating the heck out of her, or is there more than meets the eye, a secret, perhaps, that went wrong, very wrong and hit every tabloid in the universe, totally humiliating Charlotte. As if fate hasn’t messed with Charlotte enough, Des is running in the same social circles and to say he can be completely frustrating at times, would be an understatement and Charlotte is hard-pressed to honor the restraining order, okay, she sometimes can’t avoid violating it. But life isn’t all bad for her, love has found her in the form of an amazing man, best friend and confidant who is willing to stand behind her every scheme to confront Des, in spirit if not physically. When the truth comes out, I had to say, I did NOT see that coming!
Charlotte’s Restraint by Celia Kennedy is one of those books that you have to read to truly appreciate the humor, the friendships, those over-the-top frustrating moments and the priceless characters that grace these pages. Charlotte is one determined young woman who often thinks with her heart and not her head, rushing in where wise men fear to go, willing to take one for the team when necessary and easily hurt in the process. I must say, if one were to look up resilient in the dictionary, there could be a picture of Charlotte right there in the definition. Light-hearted, big-hearted and completely entertaining from start to finish, a great read when something fast and kind of fun is required!
