    Review: Harbor City 3: The Schemer

    The Schemer by Avery Flynn is the third book in her Harbor City series. Another flirty, fun, sexy, romantic story told in dual POV between Tyler Jacobson and Everly Ribinski. This can be read as a standalone but is better read in series order. Each book continues with another couples story along a progressing timeline. Tyler has worked extremely hard to egt where he is. He is now rubbing shoulders and doing business with the Harbor City elite, regardless of his blue-collar birth place across the harbor. Voice coaching to get rid of his "wrong side of the tracks" accents and always a plan laid out at least six-steps ahead. He excels at reading people which is why he is beyond baffled at the epic failure of his first meeting with Everly, his upstairs neighbor and all-around beautiful woman. Although, it may have something to do with him placing his foot in his mouth in EPIC proportions the very first time they met - maybe. Everly has successfully opened her own art gallery and is making it, barely, but she is doing it. She is proud of where she came from, not embarrassed by her blue-collar background at all. When Tyler suggests a voice coach for her accent her hackles are up right away, but she manages to not tear him down, he is, after all, her downstairs neighbor. But when he just keeps stepping it where she is concerned a feud begins between them. One that enjoys just as much one-on-one time (sex) as it does fighting. But can Tyler ever get past her lack of embarrassment at her upbringing or trust that she can fit into the upper-crust niche he himself is trying to squeeze into? Feisty, sexy to the max, laugh out loud funny and a bit emotional too, this was well-written, well-paced and decent page-turner. Enjoy!

    A great read

    ****I voluntarily requested and received an Advance Review Copy via Netgalley. This is my honest review.**** The author is great with writing characters with unique personalities and it exemplifies in this book. Tyler Jacobsen (2B) was a child with unfortunate family background on the other side of the tracks but was given a new chance at life by a special socialite. He became a millionaire businessman with the intentions to forget his past and fit in with them. Everly Ribinski (3B) is the owner of an art gallery with the history of coming from the wrong side of the tracks and proud of her accomplishments. She leased the apartment above Tyler and the street level for her new gallery in Tyler’s building. Their first meeting started off with a bang and went down hill from there with unexpected occurrence leading to bickering and bartering between the two. The two was immediately attracted to each other but was in complete denial. It’s fair to say, we all had a Nunni, who wanted what is best for her kids and grandchildren. I was very excited about Helene but thought she was short changed and needed her own story. I felt in life, we all have met an Irena, who is arrogant, obnoxious and self-centered. It's a lot I would like to say about this book but I don't want to give any plot points away, the blurb is a great description. I haven’t read the Charmer but it is on my TBR list. This book is a must read!

    Oil and water do mix

    While being a fan of Avery Flynn, I must admit I haven't read the first two books in this series. I have a feeling that Tyler Jacobson has not been the nicest guy. He even describes himself as having ice in his veins. He is a shrewd businessman who doesn't let anything to fate. He even perfected a coin toss to always be in his favor. When you get down to it, he is a man who is trying to outrun his upbringing. And if I ever meet his parents, they wouldnt know what hit them. Tyler was brought up in a household filled with anger. And as a boy, he had no idea how to handle that. That is where he learned to hide his feelings. Then add to that his scholarship to an exclusive prep school and how kids can be so cruel. It was then, that he was determined to be more than where he came from. Everly is awesome! She is also from the " wrong" side of town but she doesn't care. She loves art and her art gallery. And she's known in the social circles to find the best artists. She also loves her Grandmother who raised her after her mother's death. Her father was from the "right" side of town and never wanted anything to do with Everly. His loss. Again a parent I'd love to get to. She makes no excuses for how she protects those that she loves and she does this for Tyler before she knows it. The two of them together are like oil and water. BUT they are explosive once they get past the whole stick the foot in the mouth every time we speak thing they have. The hotness level almost burned up my e-reader. I must say I did love to hate the ex fiancee. She added to the fire by trying to discredit Tyler and Everly. And again i find myself wanting to be alone with her in a dark alley. She also gets everything she deserves up to and including her wedding to Everly's friend and mentor's son. There is also a beautiful love story going on with the mentor, Alberto. He has fallen for the widow, Helene. She is the mother of Tyler's childhood friend and who guided him through the upper class. I loved her and how she had grace and dignity through just about any situation. So I cried throughout this book. I cried from laughter at some of the things that they said to each other. I cried from laughter at the situations they got themselves into. I cried at the growth that Tyler was forced to make by his still best friend from the wrong side of town. And I cried at the wedding scene. Doesn't everybody cry at weddings? And its not who you think.

    Loved this!

    I loved this story. I opened it to just start it before bed and couldn’t stop myself from reading straight through. I really liked Tyler and Everly. I loved Helene and her subplot with Alberto. I wanted to punch Irena. The main conflict was one that felt very real to me. The idea of escaping your past and missing out on the good around you. Caring and worrying too much about what other people think of you. I also liked that I wasn’t absolutely lost by reading the books out of order. There is cross over, but this is very much Tyler and Everly’s book.
