    GREAT STORY!!

    A great, fun read!! Hudson is a billionaire that oozes charm but when he meets a woman who isn't interested in his charm, he sets out to convince her otherwise. Felicia is a woman focused on researching her honeypot ants, getting her research in a highly respected science magazine and getting the man she's been in love with since she was 15. She also has a personal deadline to achieve all this before her 30th birthday, which is right around the corner. These two are total opposites and the dialog between them was exciting & fun with quite a few steamy scenes the will make you swoon! The swooning was my favorite part!!

    Nerdy scientist, meet naughty artist.

    This book is the perfect example of everything naughty and nice, with sugar and spice. Felicia is the adorkable ant scientist and Hudson is the playboy millionaire who leads a secret double life. Under the premise of helping each other out, they develop a relationship that is quirky, fun and of course steamy. Neither can hide their true self in front of the other but still, end up fooling themselves and figuring out the truth about their feelings after making a big mess of thongs ahem I mean things. I read this book twice which is rare and I had, even more, fun in the second read through. The snarky banter will have you giggling or laughing out loud through most of the book and yep you will be wiping a sweaty brow a couple of times because these two are off the charts.

    Fantastic - Hudson is definitely a "Charmer"

    The Charmer (A Hot Romantic Comedy) (Harbor City) by Avery Flynn This is Hudson Carlyle and Felicia Hartigan's story. Wow! Another winner by Avery Flynn. The author delivered an entertaining, funny, and hot read! Felicia is nerdy and brilliant. She loves planning and being organized. Hudson appears to be the rich pampered boy. There is more to Hudson than he lets everyone see. Hudson and Felicia are opposites but they are perfect for one another but will they take a chance on love? I really loved the characters. Hudson is such a "charmer". I enjoyed Hudson and Felicia's story. This was a fantastic book. This is book number two in the Harbor City series. This book can be read as a standalone. But if you haven't read book number one, The Negotiator, you will want to. It was really great too. FYI, contains mature and graphic content. I voluntarily reviewed an Advance Reader Copy of this book.

    Amusing

    This RomCom is a light-hearted, amusing read. The story is well-written and the flow is good, and I did get a few chuckles along the way. The problem, for me, is the heroine in this romance. Supposedly determined to land the elusive Tyler, Felicia's actions are quite contrary to that. I get that she is a bit obsessive about her lists and completing them, but falling into bed with Hudson, over and over, and getting right back on task with catching Tyler before the sheets have even cooled, is not what I would expect from an accomplished woman. I did enjoy Hudson's chase and failure to capture his love interest, as well as his run-in with her crazy feline, and the steam between this pair was fan yourself hot, but Felicia just left me with a sour feeling. The author is talented and the writing style is quite good, so I will continue to read her books. This one just missed the mark for me.

    Fantastic Read!!

    I loved this book! Hudson... have mercy. Another book I did not put down. It's just that good. When the story starts to take the first few twists and turns, I couldn't help myself, just had to keep reading. Hudson is the charming of the two brothers, and frankly he is just that. Looking at him and workaholic, driven Sawyer just give me Hudson. He wants no part of the family business, shows up at events only when beckoned by his mother Helene. Here we see him invited to the museum for an exhibition when a young woman wearing what he describes as a sack catches his eye, and his desire to paint her kicks in. Hudson has a secret life. He's a highly successful artist whose paintings are prized. He hides it from his family, after being chastised in college by his father who pressed him into business or else. After the fall out from book one, Sawyer and Tyler still aren't talking to each other because they're both jackhats and Helene sets about an idea that Hudson needs to fix this. Because Hudson is a fixer. During the evening he meets Felicia. Felicia is his object d'art and desire. Felicia has a PhD in I'll be brief here, insects, namely a specific species of ant. Felicia is form across the river in Waterbury, comes from a loud, large Irish family and is no bigger than a minute. They called her pocket sized. When Tyler's family moved into the neighborhood she finally met someone she could talk to, but he was her older brothers best friend and Tyler got a scholarship to the prep school back across the river. The town that the Carlyle's basically built. Felicia has had a major crush on Tyler forever (although it totally eludes me why). Hudson doesn't get it either, but makes a deal with Felicia that she'll help him get the two guys back on speaking terms meanwhile he'll coach her on dating and in return she agrees to let him paint her. Hudson jumps in with both feet to his newly assigned duty with her and I loved it. I loved them both. Hudson was so slick without being slimy- he was -yes, charming. His nickname for her was Matches and Matches was a little slow out of the gate, but she caught up. Started getting confused about her feelings and had to remind herself that Tyler was the end goal. There were a couple of things Tyler did in this book that peeved me about his friendship with Matches and I didn't like it or him for doing it. Selfish, he is. So Avery, fantastic storyteller that she is weaves us a story that really entwines Hudson and Matches, let me not forget her one eyed cat who is one step away from feral, but of course loves Hudson. Meanwhile he takes her to his grandfathers cabin, which is his secret working place and she sees all these sketches of her. She then realizes who her favorite painter is as well and is sworn to secrecy. Hudson has a big showing coming up at Everly's gallery. When the bottom drops out of things, Felicia is wounded and holes up in her tiny apartment. Hudson is a train wreck and someone has to intervene. Yes it comes too. Small army because Hudson needs that. Yes, I'm obviously being sketchy, you're lucky you got this much... this is a must read book. I love Avery's books but this tops my list. It's got everything wrapped up into a nice tidy package, ok not tidy, the one eyed cat thing... but it is perfect. I loved this book and for me tops book one. Avery you have outdone yourself with this one. It's a must read and a keeper. **arc from NetGalley and Entangled in exchange for a fair review**
