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…

This was a cute take on the "fake relationship" trope.
Sawyer works way too much and is more than a little clueless when it comes to women. He desperately wants to avoid the set ups his mother keeps creating for him and his brother "helps" by posting an add for a "personal buffer" and screens the candidates - all men and 1 Clover Lee.
I enjoyed these two together! Clover helped bring Sawyer out of his workaholic world and show him there could be more to life at the same time he showed her a version of relationships/domestic life that didn't have to be the "prison" she thought marriage would be.
There were lots of funny and sweet moments along with some very steamy scenes. The supporting cast in the form of Sawyer's mother and brother were subtle, but key players in the story. One of the things I appreciated was that the conflict between Sawyer and Clover was organic to their relationship and a classic case of them wanting the same thing, but not being able to communicate it.
Sawyer is a slightly different take on the alpha/billionaire hero. He's quirky and has a personality slightly at odds with the alpha persona and that made me like him that much more. This is definitely a fun book to escape with.
