The Negotiator, an all-new sexy, romantic comedy standalone from Avery Flynn is now LIVE!!!
The Negotiator by Avery Flynn
Release Date: April 24th, 2017
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Wanted: Personal Buffer
Often snarly, workaholic executive seeks “buffer” from annoying outside distractions AKA people. Free spirits with personal boundary issues, excessive quirks, or general squeamishness need not apply. Salary negotiable. Confidentiality required.
Workaholic billionaire Sawyer Carlyle may have joked he needed a buffer from their marriage-obsessed mom, but he didn’t need a waiting room filled with candidates to further distract him. (Thanks, bro.) But when a sexy job applicant shooes his mom and the socialite in tow out of his office, Sawyer sees the genius of the plan. And the woman. In fact, Miss Clover Lee might just get the fastest promotion in history, from buffer to fake fiancé...
This free-spirit might look like hot sunshine and lickable rainbows, but she negotiates like a pitbull. Before Sawyer knows what hit him, he’s agreed to give up Friday nights for reality tv, his Saturdays for flea markets (why buy junk still baffles him), his Tuesdays and Thursdays for date nights (aka panty-losing opportunities if he plays his cards right). And now she wants lavender bath salts and tulips delivered every Monday?
Yup, she’s just screwing with him. Good thing she’s got this non-negotiable six-weeks-and-she’s-gone rule or Sawyer may have just met this match…
A teasing promise lit her eyes. "And I never would have guessed you didn't have any experience working with your hands." Now that was just a straight up lie. "I never said that. You know very well that I'm good with my hands." He reached out and tucked a stray blonde hair behind her ear, letting his touch linger. "Very good." Her breath caught, but she didn't move away as his fingers trailed down the soft column of her neck. Her pulse thrummed under his touch and one glance down at the hard peaks pushing against her thin T-shirt confirmed she was skating along the same fault line between sanity and lust that he was. "Are you flirting with me?" she asked, her voice breathy. "No." He didn't flirt. That was Hudson. Sawyer was the grumpy brother. He never flirted. Still, his hand didn't drop from where he was touching her and he couldn't tear his gaze away from her perfect pink mouth. "Of course not." She leaned forward, cutting the distance between them, so close he could feel her soft breath against his skin. "That would violate the contract." The temptation to dip his head the few inches to kiss her had his entire body hard and wound tight with anticipation. Lust ran through him like a runaway freight train. The little voice in the back of his head screaming that this was a bad idea suffered the same fate as it had in the supply closet last night: death by ignoring. Clover Lee had that effect on him. It was going to be a very long month and a half. "The napkin didn't say anything about flirting," he said. No, he was totally free to give himself blue balls the size of watermelons every time he came near his personal buffer. "Ah-ha!" The triumphant sound escaped her lush lips as she straightened, expanding the space between them and dislodging his hand from her soft skin. "You are flirting." Was he? No. He was torturing himself. That was a very different sort of hell. "You take all the fun out of things." "No way." She shook her head, the movement letting a few more silky strands loose from the knot on the top of her head. "I am the definition of fun. If it wasn't for me, you'd still be in your office banging on your keyboard." "I don't bang." "Not me, you don't," She shot him a cocky smirk. "It's in the contract.”

I can't believe this is my first Avery Flynn book, where has she been hiding ...
This is a book about opposites and as the saying goes quite often "opposites attract " and that's exactly what happens in this hilarious rom-com.
Clover Lee has applied to be a buffer for Sawyer Carlyle, she is hired to stop his mother sending him eligible women after all he is very happy being single, he has no time for relationships well that was until Clover came into his life and messed up his routine. Clover is so different to any other women he has met she is not afraid of his mother, she loves flea markets and her ideal day is renovating a treasure picked up from a local flea market .....
The chemistry between these two is apparent from the very start and Clover's quirky talk out loud moments are just hilarious but what I really loved about this book was the storyline, two people learning about each other, growing into friends and becoming lovers. Avery Flynn certainly knows how to write a perfect rom-com giving you just the right amours of humour, lust,love and conflict.
This was a perfect way to be introduced to a new author and I will be looking at all of her other books.
This is the first book I have read by this author and it certainly won't be the last!
This book had me intrigued from the start with the quirky heroine Clover and billionaire Sawyer! Those two had me laughing, and so incredibly engrossed in the story I didn't want to put it down and then I didn't want it to end!
Immensely enjoyable read that has you wondering what will happen! Will they really go through with things or tell everyone the truth??!!
The characters were fantastic, the humour was done so well and the families just made me want to be a part of them!!!
