A Review of Charlotte's Bed by S.J. Stava

At thirty, Charlotte is sick of the single life. Sick of online matchmaking, sick of bad first (AND second) dates, and sick of the dreaded "I can't believe you're not married yet!" pitying stares. So when her boyfriend proposes – who just happens to be a Dean at the university where she works – she's thrilled to bid her singledom adieu. At the start of the new semester, she seems to have it all: a great job, great friends, and now. . . a great fiancĂ©.

So what’s the catch? An annoyingly handsome new teaching assistant and the opportunity to direct the school’s fall production. Still can’t see the downside? Neither can Charlotte until suddenly, what she thought she wanted, might not be enough anymore.

How do you choose between the life you've always imagined and the love you've suddenly discovered?


I enjoyed this book. Charlotte and Richard have a very different type of relationship. I must say I am not a fan of Richard's at all. As Jess puts it, "He's a chauvinistic pig..." "He's judgmental and pompous. Arrogant." I agree! Charlotte I think, because of her lack of parental support, stays with Richard because he pays attention to her. When Mason entered the picture, you bet I was cheering him on. But not everything is as easy as it seems. These two face a lot of self searching and learning, and just having to figure it outs, before they can even begin to figure their relationship out. There is a lot of different emotions in this one. Very well written with great attention to detail. Great job by the author!

The Author:
S.J. Stava
S.J. Stava has loved to read for as long as she can remember. Most childhood summers were spent schlepping to and from the local library with shopping bags full of books. Her passion for books led her to study literature at UCSB, where she graduated with her B.A. in English. After working in a plethora of different careers - from wedding planning to market research to fundraising - she's never stopped reading...or writing.

Having spent time dallying in ghostwriting, she got bit by the bug and decided to publish her very own book, Charlotte's Bed, under her very own name.
