The Negotiator Blog Tour Is Making A Stop Here Today!!
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…

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.”
Clover Lee decided early on that she wasn't cut-out for domestic life, she watched her mother give-up her dreams of travel to settle for married life and Clover didn't want to follow the same fate. So, she has become somewhat of a nomad, traveling from place to place, taking odd jobs just for the life experiences, and once the job is done she is one to the next. She has a plan for a trip to Australia in the works, but she is a little short on funds, so she hits up the wanted ads in hopes of finding something temporary to get her what she needs for her next adventure... and winds up on a adventure she never expected would come her way... love!!
Sawyer Carlyle lives and breaths the family business, so much so, his family is starting to grow quite concerned about him forgetting about the world around him. His mother would love to see him break away from the business a bit, and find a good woman to settle down with, but so far she hasn't been able to convince him to take her bait. Sawyer on the other hand, just sees it as his mother meddling in his personal life, and he is growing quite tired of it, so with his brothers help he comes up with a little plan to convince her to butt out. But after he meets the beautiful blonde who is supposed to help him carry out this little plan things start to backfire, and this "all business" man starts to see the appeal of living life outside the confines of his office!
Minutes into this read I was quickly reminded why I love Ms. Flynn's books so much, her well crafted quirky characters waltz onto to the page, the witty sexually charged banter starts, and I start to beam, knowing I'm about to be taken on hell of a literary journey!! And this journey was flipping AMAZING, it had it all; a swoonworthy alpha male, laugh out loud humor, an inspiring feisty heroine, and an enthralling story line that is loaded emotion and sizzle!! Highly recommend you pick this one up, I guarantee you walk away with a happy heart, and harboring a serious crush on Mr. Carlyle!!
I voluntarily read and reviewed an advanced copy of this title.
