K.L. Brady Writes

Charisse Tyson seems to have it all—a great job, a dream car, and a McMansion in high-and-mightyville. Everything in her life is just right…except the Mister. Laugh loud and often as Charisse discovers whether her choices in men reflect more than a penchant for good looks, great sex, and bad judgment.

Charisse Tyson seems to have it all—a great job, a dream car, and a McMansion in high-and-mightyville. Everything in her life is just right…except the Mister. While lamenting the break-up with her most recent “the one” during a holiday meltdown, Charisse realizes she has a type when it comes to men—players, players, and more players. A magazine article motivates her to swear off men and examine the complex roots of her romantic fiascos.  


Just five simple steps to transform Charisse’s love life to the stuff of legends, right? Life is never that easy.


She commences her D-I-Y therapy and barely cracks open her emotional toolbox when she encounters the monkey wrenches: a sexy new beau, two persistent ex-flames, and an FBI agent with life-altering secrets threatening to turn her world topsy-turvy. A tug of war ensues with Charisse dead center, creating chaos as she attempts to distinguish the Don Juans from the Romeos. As her love life is propelled into unpredictable twists not even she could imagine, will a twenty-seven-year-old secret keep Charisse from finding the right “one”? 


Laugh loud and often as Charisse discovers whether her choices in men reflect more than a penchant for good looks, great sex, and bad judgment.

"You know how most women have 'a type?' Well, I did too. They were usually the cheating type, every single one of them. All mouth-watering handsome, charming to fault, and bedded more women than Sealy Posturepedic..."

What Reviewers Are Saying...
"K.L. Brady has penned a clever, witty, insightful, and down right hilarious novel with THE BUM MAGNET. From the first page until the very last, I was laughing out loud and wondering just how this new author came up with this stuff. Charisse Tyson is a realistic and likable character with flaws and
experiences that most women can relate to . . . This debut author is one to watch. I highly recommend THE BUM MAGNET!" Monique D. Mensah, RAWSISTAZ Reviewers

“Creatively well-crafted, The Bum Magnet is a highly enjoyable, entertaining read. In a signature style equally hilarious and insightful, author K.L. Brady takes readers on a vicarious journey through the depths of the heart and mind . . . Witty pointed and real, The Bum Magnet sucks you in from the beginning and keeps you rapt until the very end. A highly tecommended read." Linda Waterson, Apex Reviews

“K.L. Brady’s journey of one woman’s dating woes and self discovery was entertaining and real. With a nice balance of drama and laughs, The Bum Magnet is both funny and uplifting…”
OOSA Online Book Club

"The Bum Magnet is a woefully delicious tale of the worst and best, but mostly worst kind of men any single woman could come across... the only thing to predict in this story is its unpredictability. K.L. Brady has a unique writing style, incorporating humor, warmth and sass . . . " Evie Alex, Long Live Chick Lit

"Ms. Brady's creativity had me laughing-out-loud and shaking my head. . . The message of this book is something everyone can benefit from. I recommend The Bum Magnet to readers looking to laugh while enjoying a well-crafted story." Jennifer Coissiere, APOOO BookClub

What Readers Are Saying!
"There isn't a woman I know, including myself, that can't relate to Charisse on some level. Very intelligently written and witty and "tears rolling down my face" at points funny. I give it five stars."
SGR Sista

"Charisse is a great character. I fell in love with her. She felt very real- funny, smart, charming, witty but also lonely and flawed. Once I started to read her story, I didn't want to put the book down."
A. Shelton, Atlanta, GA

"The book wasn't just smart and entertaining, but it also surpassed the genre of chick-lit."
H. Geil, California

"For every woman who has ever had a man treat her wrong and wondered what she did to deserve it, this is the book for you. I laughed, I cried, and I shouted in triumph right along with Charisse."
I. Cole, Seattle, WA

"It's an entertaining, eye-opening, funny at times, yet serious account of being single and free."
RDE, Clinton, MD

"Everytime I thought I figured out what was about to happen, the author threw in a curveball which kept me up late at night trying to find where it would land."
April T, Texas, USA

"Ms. Brady writes well with quick wit humor. The Bum Magnet will keep you up until the wee hours of the night."
Sheri, Sandwich, IL
