The Negotiator, an all-new sexy, romantic comedy standalone from Avery Flynn is now LIVE!!!
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…
The Negotiator was a fun; at times a bit quirky read that as much as it kills me to say I just didn’t love. It is a good book, don’t think that it is not but sometimes you just don’t connect with characters and that is what happened here. I liked the whole premise for the book, I was intrigued and curious about how this one would play out, but sadly it didn’t work for me like I had hoped it would.
Clover, she just got on my nerves on more than one occasion. I couldn’t connect with her, I couldn’t find her character very likable and I promise I tried to, I tried so hard but I think for me, Clover is like the oil to my water, we just don’t mix. Sawyer at times was also aggravating but for some reason I liked his character more than I did Clover. I think a small part of me felt for him and his need for a “buffer”. The lack of communication between these two was what put the knife in the story for me.
While The Negotiator had some laugh out loud moments, they weren’t enough for me to love this one. Maybe it will work better for some of you, like I have always said when a book didn’t exactly work for me, go read it for yourself, form your own opinion, what works for one may not for another.
