Title: The Negotiator
Author: Avery Flynn
Publisher: Entangled Select Contemporary, Entangled Publishing

This is a laugh out loud, hot but sweet romance which I thoroughly enjoyed!
Sawyer Carlyle is a workaholic billionaire whose mother is determined to have married to one of the young ladies she keeps introducing him to. He loves his Mum but struggles to get her to let him lead his life how he wants – and preferably without all the potential bridal candidates she keeps presenting to him. His brother advertises for someone to act as a buffer, someone to prevent those endeavouring to distract him from his work – especially their Mum. Sawyer isn’t impressed when he finds out about the advert or the potential candidates for the job who are awaiting him interviewing them! All seems lost until his Mum appears and one of the candidates actually intervenes to send his Mum away. That candidate was Clover Lee. She even manages to impress the unimpressionable and is totally a free spirit. Talk about opposites attracting! She gets speedily promoted from buffer to fake fiancé . . . and proves to be a sensational negotiator in the process!
This is a hilarious story of someone meeting their match in every sense of the term. It has great characters, an endearing plot and lots of fun throughout it. I enjoyed escaping into this sweet, delightful, contemporary romance and believe others will, too! Another great story from Avery Flynn, I can’t wait to read more from her in future!
I requested and received a copy of this book via NetGalley without any obligation. This is my honest opinion after reading it.
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..
