Review: THE SCHEMER (Harbor City #3) by Avery Flynn

Source: Received an egalley from the publisher in exchange for an honest review.
Publisher: Entangled: Amara
Release Date: February 5, 2018
Number of Pages: 300 (ebook)


Tyler Jacobson has a plan for everything—except how to handle his completely annoying, utterly frustrating, and totally sexy upstairs neighbor. He couldn't care less if Everly Ribinski thinks he's equally irritating—until he discovers she's the only one who can help him land a business deal that will finally make him feel like he's more than just a guy from the wrong side of the tracks.

Color him shocked when Everly refuses to help, insisting she should have run him over in the parking garage when she had the chance. Harsh. But possibly deserved. Tyler may have spent the last few months reveling in annoying the fiery gallery owner with a dark past, but he's got secret leverage she can't refuse.

If only one meeting didn't turn into a fake date that turned into more. Way more. Like naked and hot as hell more.

The last thing either of them wants is to catch feelings for someone who is so obviously not their type. Good thing that will never happen. Right?

Each book in the Harbor City series is STANDALONE:
* The Negotiator
* The Charmer
* The Schemer


I'm always a fan of a good rom-com with a hate-to-love plot and THE SCHEMER had this in spades! As soon as I read the description I was intrigued and I immediately wanted a copy in my hands! I loved the idea of the neighbours that don't get along, who then have a fake date that turns into more where they don't want to catch feelings...so many great things packed into one book and you know what, Avery Flynn completely delivered and she delivered it very, very well! I thought that THE SCHEMER was fantastic!

Tyler and Everly were amazing characters! They were both intelligent and had a tendency to scheme, which I loved! It was so interesting to see how their brains worked as they tried to outsmart and outmaneuver each other, and I loved that they both found the other to be a bit unpredictable, but that they could also read each other fairly well. It was an interesting dichotomy that worked extremely well with the two characters. It worked even better because we got to see both of their POVs so we knew what each of them didn't know. ;)

Overall, I thought that THE SCHEMER was fantastic! I absolutely loved the characters, and the story was wonderful! I thought that the romance was both sweet and super sexy, and I couldn't get enough of it! I can't wait to go back and read more of Avery Flynn's books now because I thought this one was fabulous! I'd recommend THE SCHEMER to anyone looking for a rom-com that will leave them laughing, smiling, and possibly even blushing at times (depends how easily you blush ;P)! You can read THE SCHEMER in chronological order as part of the Harbor City series, or on its own. I read it without having read the first two books and I wasn't lost at all. ;)

What do you think?
Are you a fan of steamy rom-coms?
And does THE SCHEMER sound like a book you'd enjoy?
