Review: Marry Me, Charlotte B.

CharlotteMarry Me, Charlotte B!
by Carla de Guzman

You are cordially invited to the wedding of the year!

Nellie Canlas loves her job. She loves being assistant to reality TV star and wedding planner goddess, the fabulous Charlotte Bertram, and she loves working with couples to make their wedding dreams come true. What she doesn’t love is having cameras following her all the time, especially when she’s crushing hard on the lawyer from another floor.

Robert Bertram doesn’t like planning weddings. He doesn’t like being on TV either. But when he finds himself in possession of Nellie’s diary, he thinks he can turn her into anyone’s dream girl. If he doesn’t fall for her first.

myreviewKNow, this is a first for me. First time to encounter a book that was to be read as if you’re watching a reality show. At first, I was like, “whoa, what’s happening there? what’s with all the camera and cut to next scenes and interviews? what am I reading? who’s talking right now?”

Then I stopped, re-assessed the book, and read it like how it was supposed to be read. And off we went!

I soon enjoyed this unique setting and creative storyline. Robert is every bit a character to me – helpful, sexy, a bit presumptuous, but with a good heart, good intention. Now Nellie, was something else. She’s Charlotte B’s assistant but she’s got a good head on her shoulders and a great potential waiting to be tapped. She and Rob make a good couple.

I liked Carla de Guzman’s writing, it’s unique and fresh. She’s already got my attention with this book! Looking forward to what she’s gonna write next 🙂


Carla de Guzman ( had horrible handwritingcdg
as a kid. That didn’t stop her from writing, though. Riddled with too
much energy and a vivid imagination, she started writing every midnight.
She grew up with her toes in the sand and her bags packed and ready to
go on adventures. Her books are chronicles of her journeys, with a little
romance mixed in. When she’s not sitting in a plane or working, Carla
writes for her blog, Some Midnights (,
Modern Filipina and When in Manila.
