THIS YEAR’S BLACK (Killer Style #2) by Avery Flynn
Published May 27th 2014 by Entangled: Ignite
A fighter since birth, Allegra “Ryder” Falcon would rather trade in her all-black wardrobe for
head-to-toe hot pink than let anyone ever see the cracks in her tough exterior. But one night with
a stranger changes everything.
Devin Harris may have given up his MMA fighting dreams for high fashion, but that doesn’t
mean he isn’t always in control. So when someone embezzles millions under his watch, he isn’t
going to let the private investigator working the case go it alone–even if she is the woman who
blew him away in bed and then blew him off.
Just when it seems like it couldn’t get any hotter between Ryder and Devin, the case takes them
to a tropical paradise where the danger increases. From the catwalk to the pineapple fields, they
have to work together to track down the missing millions before the thief finds–and kills–
AVERY FLYNN BIO:
Avery Flynn has three slightly-wild children, loves a hockey-addicted husband and is desperately hoping someone invents the coffee IV drip.
She fell in love with romance while reading Johanna Lindsey’s Mallory books. It wasn’t long before Avery had read through all the romance offerings at her local library. Needing a romance fix, she turned to Harlequin’s four books a month home delivery service to ease the withdrawal symptoms. That worked for a short time, but it wasn’t long before the local book stores’ staffs knew her by name.
Avery was a reader before she was a writer and hopes to always be both. She loves to write about smartass alpha heroes who are as good with a quip as they are with their ahem other God-given talents. Her heroines are feisty, fierce and fantastic. Brainy and brave, these ladies know how to stand on their own two feet and knock the bad guys off theirs.
If you are looking for a fun and sexy adventure you have come to the right place. Avery Flynn’s second book in her A Killer Style series, THIS YEAR’S BLACK, does not disappoint!
Her lovers, Ryder and Devin, have a phenomenal night together leaving them both knowing they have met someone who will change their life forever. Problem being Devin is all for it, he calls, he texts, he wants more! He knows he found something special with Ryder that may never come along again. But Ryder, she’s terrified of the feelings she had when she was with Devin. She’s been fooled in the worst way and doesn’t trust her instincts about men so she’s made a vow to never see the same man more than once. She bolts leaving Devin wondering what went wrong.
Skip ahead a few weeks and Ryder gets her first assignment as the lead on a case. An embezzlement case that’s right up her alley with her forensic accounting skills. When she meets with the client to begin her investigation she finds that she must work the case with Devin, the one night stand she can’t get out of her head no matter how hard she tries. Devin is just as shocked to see her and angry about how she ditched him without a word. Women just did not do that to him!
These two were such a great pairing, so equally matched in every way. As they took off on their adventure to chase down the embezzler and recover the money stolen you just knew Devin would have his wicked way with Ryder. And oh my, does he! Ryder is too attracted to Devin to resist for long, but oh, she does not go down easily. Their verbal sparring was awesome to read! As was their sexy times, and their mishaps, and even the way they fought off the bad guys like a coordinated team. I’m so glad that the majority of the story was all about Ryder and Devin because the reading was thrilling on so many levels. The suspense, mystery, bad guy part of storyline seemed almost like an afterthought and so was a little too predictable. But watching these two finally succumb to the inevitable was wondrous and totally make the book a must-read! 4 stars
