Seventeen-year-old Julia Wright doesn't understand her friends' obsession with boys. She's never even had a crush, and proudly maintains her composure no matter who is in her presence. In fact, the hotter a guy is to her friends, the more annoying he seems to Julia. When she is blackmailed into being the manager of the men's swim team, she finds herself face to face with the worst of them all.
Team Captain Vander Thelxinoe is the typical self-assured jock, with a not-so-typical ability to change people's minds at will. It's a talent he uses often to get what he wants--only his charms don't work on Julia. Now he is anxious to figure out why, and the closer he tries to get, the more desperate she is to stay away--especially when he somehow awakens a side of her she never knew existed.
Their quite unexpected friendship puts Julia in the middle of a quest she doesn't quite understand. As her familiar world starts to unravel around her, Julia must partner with the one person who knows how to push her buttons--and, in doing so, discovers the unbelievable truth about who she really is.
Can Julia and Vander survive the trial set before them, or will they succumb to a more terrifying fate?

I was asked to read Trial by Charm for an honest review. Thank you, Jolene.
I finished Trial by Charm last night, though I found myself wanting to find out more, I have mixed feelings regarding the book.
I was entrapped within the storyline yet I find myself with unanswered questions. I was slightly taken back with how quickly the story ended. That being said I enjoyed watching the relationship blossom between Julia and Vander.
Trial by Charm is filled with teenage angst and a whole lot of mystery.
