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-negotiatable six-weeks-and-she’s-gone rule or Sawyer may have just met this match…
Let’s just start with the cover, shall we?!? Wow…that alone is worth the price of admission 🙂
Avery Flynn, I’m not quite sure why I had not read any of your books until now, but I promise you, if the rest of your books are anything like The Negotiator, you have a new fan.
After the death of his father, Sawyer Carlyle is drowning with the responsibility of his family and their business. Sawyer’s mother plans to get him married off sooner than later and is throwing socialites at him left and right. However, Sawyer is content running the family business and growing the Carlyle legacy. When an ad has been placed for a “buffer” between Sawyer Carlyle and his mother, Sawyer had no idea what he was in for.
What could possibly go wrong with this cover up??
Jane “Clover” Lee is a free-spirited woman who jumps around from job to job and is looking to make some money to get her off to Australia. She is well traveled and tries to make a difference wherever she lands. Answering an ad for a “buffer”, Clover goes in for the interview and tells off Sawyer’s mother instantly. OMG, I died laughing! This girl has it all…brains, beauty and such a smart-ass mouth to top it all off!
“I love that even without saying a word, you’ve out negotiated me. Every time.”
The CHEMISTRY between Sawyer and Clover just makes this book! Their banter is one for the ages and was funny as hell. Clover absolutely makes this book. Her intelligence and charm totally win everyone she meets over. Through the entire book, the dialogue between the main characters was written with plenty of fun, touching moments and a bunch of attitude 😉There were plenty of touching moments as well as the “what are you thinking?” moments.
The Negoitator has enough sass, fun times and a little drama to make it a great read. I highly suggest one-clicking this book!!
I give The Negotiator by Avery Flynn 4 stars!
