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…

Oh boy … did the negotiator suck. NO, NOT THE BOOK, the negotiator himself. He was out-witted, out-talked and, definitely, out-maneuvered by one hell of a smart, sexy and funny woman. Sawyer Carlyle met his match when he met Clover Lee and she let him know it every chance she got.

I loved this story … I laughed, cursed and then laughed some more as the story unfolded. Jane “Clover” Lee was magnificent. Sawyer Carlyle was an ass. But, when they got together and negotiated the terms of their agreement, they never imagined that boots would be hidden, that flea markets would be fun and Romcom would be their downfall. But, pulling the wool over everyone’s eyes about their engagement was hard work and had to be as real as it could get. It became harder and harder for them to ignore their feelings and, when push finally came to shove … well, like I said Sawyer was an ass. Yes, don’t worry, he does redeem himself and does take a good hard look himself to see everything that he missed and could miss.

Avery Flynn rates very high on my “gotta read” list. I am thrilled that I got to read and review this light-hearted, fun story that she penned. I could always count on her to give me a good story. I know that it will be fluent, the words will flow right off the pages, have just a little angst and a whole lot of hot loving. If you are looking for a fun read that will keep you smiling, by an author who knows just how to keep you invested in a story, pick up The Negotiator.

This was an interesting, very sexy book, with good psychological drama and intriguing characters.

Sawyer Carlyle is dedicated to his business-and has no room in his life for anything else, particularly not the society women his mother has been parading in front of him in hopes to get him married.

Enter his brother, who advertises for a personal buffer for Sawyer to keep distractions at a minimum. That is how Clover (Jane) Lee finds herself in Sawyer’s waiting room scunched up among a bunch of muscle-bound bodyguard types. Clover, who at first appears to be a very free spirit, finds herself hired after she backs down Mama and two more society girls. But Clover has her own negotiating skills and finds a way to make Sawyer forget about business for a time. When the attraction between the two of them proves irresistible, they enter into a fake engagement, but it comes with its own set of challenges. Can these two unlikely lovers actually find a way to make a relationship work?

I loved Clover. She’s bright, funny, and holds her own with the determined Sawyer. He comes across a bit cold at first, but it soon becomes apparent that he’s just very bad at interpersonal relations.

This was a fun, flirty read and while this is a new to me author, I will be looking for more of her books.
