Naturally, Charlie by S.L. Scott

From Goodreads: 

Twenty-five year old Charlotte “Charlie” Barrow is caught between her old life and the one she is beginning to build when she crosses paths with a handsome stranger on the subway. Not looking for romance, she closes her heart off to the possibilities of love. 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.


Naturally, Charlie is a story told from the alternating point of views of two Charlies; Charlotte and Charles.  

Charlotte is a smart and caring woman. She has been hurt in the past and so she is cautious and insecure about some things.

Charles is from Upper Manhattan. He comes from a privileged family and realizes that money isn't everything. He is determined to make his own way in life and become his own person.

These two first spot each other in New York City on a subway, but they never approach each other. After that they keep running into each other and so a friendship ensues. These two relate to each other in a light and easy way that makes it fun to watch. 
Their friendship grows more and more as time goes on and gradually that friendship leads to romance. This is not a love story with an instant attraction/I have to have you now type of thing, which is a nice change I think.  There are ups and downs in their relationship and for a while I was not sure which way the book was going to end.  But I enjoyed each moment.

Naturally, Charlie is a cute story about friendship, love, and fate. I wasn't expecting to like it as much as I did. It made me happy. I would recommend this book to romance readers if they are looking for something a little different than the typical romance story.

Rating: 3½ out of 5.
