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.

My Thoughts and Review on Naturally, Charlie:
I adore stories like this. There is just something so wonderful and heartwarming reading about two people who build a bond through friendship and then later having that friendship turn into something bigger and better. I think all classic love stories start out that way.
Fate throwing two people together over and over again until it can no longer be ignored and the two must come together and help each other out. Make each other stronger and help to heal one another.
First off, I know I have said this before but it bares saying again, I love that this book has both POVs from both Charlies. I really love that authors are giving us that more and more lately. It makes the book that much better in my opinion.
This was such an amazing story. The characters felt so real to me. Nothing ever seemed too far fetched or unbelievable. There wasn't an insta love connection which was super nice. Those insta love things are starting to wear on me a little.
There was an instant attraction and sparks but not love, which was nice. Their were so many sweet and tender moments in this between the two Charlies that they made me melt a little. This is a heartwarming read without being overly dramatic or sappy.
Both Charlie were great characters and their love story will stick with me long after I have finished this review. This was very well executed and I will be keeping my eye on the author for any future books they may write. I know I will be buying them as soon as I see them.
I just can't give this one anything less than the 5 Stars that it so rightly deserves.
