They say what doesn’t kill you makes you stronger, and that’s great . . . as long as you don’t die.
Sixteen-year-old Haley Tremaine had it all: top-notch school, fantastic family, and a bright future, but all of that changed when an accident tore her family apart. Now, an alcoholic father, a bitter younger sister, and a cold headstone bearing her mother’s name are all she has left.
Chris Charming has it all: a powerful CEO for a father, a prestigious school, and a fortune at his fingertips, but none of that matters when he lands a reputation as a troublemaker. Struggling to follow in his father’s footsteps, he reaches out to the one person he believes truly sees him, the one person he wants: Haley.
Little do they know someone’s determined to bring the two together, even if it means murder.
A modern twist on a tale we all know and love, Charming is a modern day Cinderella story.

Author Krystal Wade leaves readers on the edge of their seats with this suspenseful book that has so many twists and turns you never know what will happen next. Charming is a book that you need to carve out time for because once you start reading, you can't stop. Page by page Charming brings you in to their world of Haley and Chris and has you second guessing everything. With so many ways this story can end up, the one question that stays firm in your mind is "Who is Haley's demented fairy godmother?"
Charming has it's share of dark moments and themes, but all in all it is a wonderfully written book that draws you in with it's Saw meets Cinderella meets The Fault In Our Stars. With romance and horror a like, Charming is a book that tilts your world onto it's axis.
Charming is a FIVE STAR book that tops my 2014 Best Reads list.
Krystal Wade is happily married to the love of her life (don’t gag) and raising three beautiful children in the gorgeous state of Virginia. They live just outside Washington, D.C., and every day she wakes up to find herself stuck in traffic trying to get there.
The horrid commute gives Krystal plenty of time to zone out and think about her characters in full, brilliant details (she’s a safe driver; don’t worry). Stories give her a way to forget about the sometimes smelly strangers sitting next to her on the fifty mile trek into town (she picks up hitchhikers every day. True story. Check out www.slug-lines.com if you don’t believe us).
Krystal has been a part of organized hitchhiking for nearly fifteen years, but that’s just one small aspect of her oh-so-large life. When she’s not working, commuting, or chasing after her three children (four if you count the man), you can usually find Krystal outside talking to her chickens like they’re the cutest things in the world (they are), or training her amazing dogs how to herd said chickens (which they love), or curled up on the sofa with a good book (why can’t that be 100% of the time?).
