My rating: 5 of 5 stars
What you’ll find in The Charm Offensive:
1. Representation of a plethora of colors of the rainbow; 2. Humor that ranges from smart to sharp to ridiculous to heartbreaking; 3. Behind-the-scenes view of reality television; and 4. Raw depictions of mental illness.
I love every word of this story and didn’t want it to end. I enjoyed the story notes at the end of each week. They add something extra to the romance story and give more insight into the world of reality TV.
Each character, no matter how big or small a part they play in the story, are rich, fully developed, and serve a purpose. There are no “filler” characters here.
Dev and Charlie will forever hold a special place in my heart. Each are multi-dimensional and so real that I can easily imagine meeting people like them in real life.
