The Husband Maker by Karey White
Charlotte’s a girl with nicknames. She may not love being called Charles or Chuck, but the hardest nickname to take is the one she was given in college, the one that’s followed her now for too many years. They call her “the husband maker” and sadly, it fits. Every guy she’s dated since high school has become his next girlfriend’s husband. Not hers. Not three girlfriends down the road. The next.
Is she doing something wrong or is she just cursed?
When Kyle Aldsworth enters the picture and sweeps her off her feet, Charlotte begins to hope that maybe she's not destined to be single forever. A senator’s son with political aspirations of his own, Kyle's wealthy, handsome, and in need of a wife. Will Charlotte be disappointed yet again, or will she finally be able to make a husband for herself?

My Review: Charlotte always makes it a point to go to the wedding receptions of the guys that she has dated. It's at the latest of these when she accidentally overhears a nickname for herself that she didn't even know she had, The Husband Maker. The guys she dates do tend to get married to the next girl that they date after her, but she finds it even more hurtful than the names that her brother and his best friend Angus have always called her. It's this nickname that prompts her to finally allow her boss to set her up with this guy she knows, she's been avoiding being set up with him because he's always seemed too old for Charlotte. But when she meets Kyle, she's unsure why she waited so long, he's perfect and romantic. But there is the matter of his father being a senator. Does Charlotte want the kind of life that will mean she's forever in the spotlight, or is she content to continue to be "The Husband Maker"
I loved this book! Charlotte is such a great character, I really enjoyed being in her head. I thought that Kyle was a great love interest. That being said, I really liked Angus, I thought he was such a fun character, willing to always pick Charlotte up when she needs it, yet always there to tease her and come up with annoying nicknames for her. I also really liked that he protected her from her nickname because he didn't want to see her hurt. The plot was fun, but watch out for the cliff-hanger ending. I have so many questions for Karey White about the ending, but maybe I'll be able to hang on until the fall when her next book about Charlotte's adventures comes out. This is a great book, and I can't wait until the fall for the next one!
