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-negotiable six-weeks-and-she’s-gone rule or Sawyer may have just met this match…

I thoroughly enjoyed THE NEGOTIATOR by Avery Flynn and highly recommend it. The premise, is basically the fake engagement (so the busy workaholic billionaire can avoid his mother’s marriage traps) where two people who seem opposite in every way are perfect for one another and eventually find their unexpected HEA.
Sawyer Carlyle is the oldest son who feels the full weight of the responsibility of his family and of his family’s business after his father’s recent and unexpected passing. His mother is worried about him and his sole focus on the business so she is constantly shoving possible brides in his way. He doesn’t want to hurt his mom, but he also doesn’t have time for dating. He makes an off-hand comment to his brother, Hudson, about wishing he had a buffer to keep his mother and her bride candidates at bay. His brother runs with it to the annoyance of Sawyer.
Jane “Clover” Lee is one of the Buffer candidates Hudson brings into the office. She is a free-spirit who takes odd jobs (very odd and random jobs) merely to pay for her need to make a difference while at the same time experiencing different cultures and places around the world, for instance teaching English to poor children in Singapore. She is by design rootless and carefree, not to be mistaken as flighty or naïve. She can negotiate with the best of them and easily out maneuvers first Helene Carlyle and then Sawyer himself.
This story was delightful at every turn and mostly due to the charm, wit and intelligence of Clover. Ms Flynn fully develops her characters and shows their wide emotional range, drawing you in not just to their outward personalities, but the inner reasons for how they became that way. The dialogue is well-written with plenty snark, laughs, and also some seriously touching moments. Overall a great read that I didn’t want to put down and read in one sitting!
