    Sometimes to take back your life you need rid yourself of the demons of the past and that is exactly what Phoenix did when she left her old life behind to take a job at a charming lakeside resort. Maybe it was the sunshine, the quirky new friends she was making, or maybe it was her new boss, but one thing for sure, Phoenix’s heart and soul came alive again as she found a second chance for lasting love and a new lease on life.Meanwhile, Phoenix...

    4.5 starsThere was something sweet and satisfying about Lori Foster’s latest release Coopers Charm and that made it very easy to read and immensely enjoyable.Sometimes I read a book and it is easier for me to list all the things I love about the book rather than write a detailed review and that is what I’m going to do with this book. I loved that both the main characters had lived through something difficult and it made them wary, yet they we...

    5 stars Phoenix (love the unique name) and Cooper’s romance was a wonderful mix of sensual and sweet! I enjoyed so much about them-their work ethics, dynamic personalities, and their shared love of animals, just to name a few. I also loved the delicious build up of sexual tension. Foster writes some of the best chemistry scenes between couples, so I knew the anticipation would be worthwhile. And when the fireworks finally erupted...yowza! As a ...

    Rating 4.5 stars. I’m a sucker for a damsel in distress story. Lori Foster’s Cooper’s Charm is exactly that but with a modern, capable damsel.Phoenix Rose is the aptest of names for a woman trying to rebuild her life after a devastating robbery during which she was beaten badly. She welcomes a new job taking care of the landscaping at Cooper’s Charm. Cooper has a surprisingly similar reason for buying a resort which takes him far from his...

    Cooper's Charm is the first book from the Love at the Resort series. It is, also, my first introduction to Lori Foster's work. I loved the main characters of Phoenix and Cooper. My favorite character would have to be that crazy Daron. He is so very funny. They were all fun to get to know. The book is full of delightful romance. I give Cooper's Charm four stars.I received this book from the publisher. This review is 100% my own honest opinion.

    This is a perfect summer vacation read! Light-hearted, cute characters, a little drama, and will leave you smiling.Cooper's Charm is the name of a camping resort. I wish it was real - beautiful lake, cabins, tent sites, rv's and campers, and all the support for the campers to be comfortable. Plus couples who meet and fall in love there.Phoenix experienced a life-changing, scary event when men broke in and almost raped her. She's spent the last mo...

    Right from the start, I knew I was going to like this one, and that first impression was dead on. Yes, it's a Contemporary Romance, and for fans of the genre, you KNOW how much more than JUST romance these stories really contain, but for those more skeptical, allow me to enlighten you. Yes, there are potential hookups, and trust me you'll be cheering them on, but it's SO MUCH MORE than that. It's about Phoenix and the "big ugly" that happened to ...
  • Darcy
    This book had a quiet tone about it. It was hard not to be charmed by the campground and it's workers. You could see right away that this would be a good place for Phoenix, a safe place, not that you knew why she needed it, just that she did. I liked that we didn't get Phoenix's past all up front, but how it was slowly rolled out. I loved the interaction between Phoenix and her sister, Ridley. Right from the start you could tell that these 2 wome...
  • Dianne
    This is everything most people want in a romance. This book has the requisite amount of angst, an abused (physically) woman, a mentally abused one, a male with a murdered wife and another male who is just full of himself, but is misunderstood (sort of), hot, lust filled thoughts with the inevitable conclusion. A bit of mystery is added for those who want a little story with their angst.*ARC supplied by the publisher.

This story follows two sisters who come to Cooper's Charm. Phoenix, the youngest comes to escape a really bad experience and her sister, Ridley comes because she is worried about her sister. Phoenix shut her sister and best friend out after a really bad experience. So when Phoen...

    I have read every book that Lori Foster has written but I think that this is one of the best one yet! It makes me want to live and work at Cooper’s Charm RV Park and Resort. This is just one of those books that you enjoy reading, can’t stop reading, and hate when it ends. All of the characters in the book from Cooper to Phoenix to Ridley to Baxter and on and on are people that you would like to know and count as your friends. If you have neve...

    What a wonderful new story by Lori Foster. This story was filled with such wonderful characters who were so engaging and fun even though they had some hurts they had to work through. I loved that no one was looking for love but they found it anyway. And the best part? There are two love stories in Cooper's Charm. Although the main hero and heroine was Cooper and Phoenix, there was also a secondary love story between Phoenix's sister, Ridley and a...
