Charlie All Night by Jennifer Crusie #BookReview #Romance



Dumped by her boyfriend and demoted from WBBB’s prime-time spot, radio producer Allie McGuffey has nowhere to go but up. She plans to make her comeback by turning temporary DJ Charlie Tenniel into a household name. And if he’s willing to help cure her breakup blues with a rebound fling, that’s an added bonus.

Charlie just wants to kick back, play good tunes and eat Chinese food. He’s not interested in becoming famous. But he is interested in Allie. And after all, what harm is a little chemistry between friends?

But suddenly their one-night stand has become a four-week addiction. Night after night on the airwaves, his voice seduces her…and all the other women in town. He’s a hit. It looks as if Charlie’s solved all Allie’s problems…except one. What is she going to do when he leaves?







Jennifer Crusie was researching her dissertation on the differences in the way men and women tell stories when she got sidetracked into writing romance novels.

Her first book was published in 1993 (which pretty much finished off any hope of her getting that PhD) and her twenty-second book, Maybe This Time, came out in August of 2010, all of which she considers a minor miracle, especially since she is also a New York Times, USA Today and Publisher’s Weekly bestseller and a two-time Rita award winner.

Jenny is currently working on her new Liz Danger mystery series. She is a very happy woman.


My Review

I first read this book in 2011 and enjoyed it as much then as now. Crusie has a talent for sarcastic, loveable heroes it’s impossible not to fall in love with!

Charlie Tenniel rolls into small town, USA, to help his dad’s best friend who has received a distressing letter against his radio station. Charlie takes on the late-night DJ spot in order to check out the situation. And his new producer, Allie McGuffey.

Allie has just been dumped by her primetime boyfriend and demoted to late-night with the new kid on the block. She’s bitter, hurt, and out for vengeance. Knowing the best way to get back at the ex is to create a star out of the new guy, she sets to work. With stunning success. Charlie is a born entertainer, and his lovemaking skills are even better!

It doesn’t take long before she’s falling for him and he seems to feel the same way, but then trouble comes to the WBBB.

Can Charlie solve the mystery and keep the girl? You’ll have to read the book to find out!

I give Charlie All Night 5+ lovely kisses- This one is a keeper 🙂
