This is a really fascinating read which I think the cover does not really do justice to it. The contents of this book is way way more awesome than the cover has ever let on. Classic don't judge the book by it's cover example. I have been always drawn to cartoony or animated or art work covers with no real people in them. It's also one of the reasons why this book got my eye. And I often associate covers like this book to fun or humor. So, I thought this book might be like a funny secret about Charlotte Dodd but it turns out the secret life of Charlotte isn't funny at all. It's far from funny. It's the most serious business that could ever be and it seems like a lot of people are in it except Charlotte. So, personally, though the cover is attention-grabbing, I think it should have been more because the story is just so fabulous and exciting that the cover I think is not really aligned. But then again, it got my attention and I decided to read this book so it has done its job. I have actually seen another cover of this book with a real person in and I think it's not as appealing as the cartoony one. I'd prefer this cover over the other one. So, I think it was actually a good decision to have switched to the cartoony cover.
As I have said, this is like Alias or maybe Dark Angel in intensity and with the kickass heroine in it. I definitely look forward to reading the next book. And I just love that Charlotte has four very protective and badass brothers. I really enjoyed the story because this book speaks of women empowerment. Charlotte is a grand player in a world dominated by men and she exceeds them all in more ways. She is the best and she represents a lot of empowered and strong women in the world who excels in any male-dominated aspect whether it be in business, career, military, government and so on. And there is just this unique quality that is only found in women which makes us really formidable foes and allies. And Charlotte just proved that one. Either you stand with her or against her. And if you are not on her side, better run and hide because she will surely do more than break your bones.
This is tagged as a chick lit but this is not like any other chick lit at all. It's packed with testosterone with the abundance of very handsome, dashing and deadly male characters in this story. In fact, there are just about four female characters, including Charlotte in here. This is not exactly a full-on romance story but as always with all stories, we couldn't leave that out also. But the main focus is not so much on the love life of Charlotte's character but rather on the other side of her personality which is actually her real self. You'll end up wanting to have Charlotte as your best friend after reading this story. Or maybe wishing to be Charlotte, like I did.
With that said, I give this book 5/5 pistols. With all the secret and surprises this book is keeping, you will never be satisfied. Even after all the revelations and well-constructed background stories and history of the characters, you will keep wanting for more. More adventures and dangers with Charlotte. More glimpses and inside stories about his brothers. Just more. Definitely, Holly Kerr has a spot in my favorite authors' list. Two more books to go and she will likely end up there.
Sometimes the first step to forgiveness is understanding the other person is a complete idiot.
- Holly Kerr, The Secret Life of Charlotte Dodd -
By this time, you're pretty confused, but not half so confused as Charlie. It seems she's a spy, currently on a long-term mission, and she has had her memories wiped and replaced with different memories. And now they need her back on the job but they don't know if she will ever recover her memories. They think her instincts will carry her. Oh,and one other little thing, the guy she thinks she loves?......she doesn't. She loves someone else. What's a girl to think or believe?
This was an exciting and fast-paced story. You don't know who's good or bad, friend or foe, lying or truthful, and neither does Charlie. There are twists and turns that you don't see coming. It's quite a ride! I do think the story could be tightened up a little. But it was a really good yarn. Get the book and read it yourself. You won't be disappointed.

When she meets Ham - why is he so familiar? The flashes, the déjà vu, the dreams - they’re not really dreams? Blowing up a building in Mexico, being buried alive - those things really happened to her? And what is her brother doing flying a plane? Turns out those two years of quiet with Luke was really an undercover mission to help bring down a secret organization targeting her family. Charlotte needs to remember her secret life if she wants to save the world again and the only man she’s ever loved.
Loved this book! I hope you like your books to start off with a Bang, right off the bat.
This one does and I really liked that. And the action just keeps right on coming. It rolls along at a pretty good clip. I liked the way the author wrote this, we get to ride along with Charlotte as she tries to figure out what is going on. She has lost so much of her memories and the reader doesn't know anything at first either. Kind of puts both of us on the same field as the story unfolds. Who can you trust? Who has another agenda? What has Charlotte (Charlie or Lottie as her brothers call her) done? What hasn't she? How can she even defend herself against any accusations, when she just doesn't know?
Early in the story I had some suspicions about 2 different people in the story. Are they up to something more sinister? Only one of them was I right about but there was also many other surprises ahead. And the deceit went so much deeper.
What a great cast of characters that were included in the book. I really liked both Charley and Ham. Something that was fun to read was when normal everyday Charlotte suddenly whips out major skills when placed in danger. It shocked her how much a part of her they were. She often wondered,"Where did that come from? It was like a superhero who suddenly found she had a new power.
This story does end BUT, I can see where it could continue with new adventures. The door was left open for that.
One question I would like to see answered was..where is the disk with Charley memories prior to her wipe?
By the way, I liked the short quotes at the beginning of each chapter. Often so appropriate to the chapter. And I really liked the cover for the book.
