    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!

    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!

    An Enemies to Lovers Romance!

    Tyler Jacobson was a scholarship kid and hasn't forgotten that; even though he's a millionaire now. He has trouble convincing himself that he fits in with the Harbor City elite so he does everything he can to prove himself. Like hiring a speech therapist to get rid of his accent, not talking about where he came from and scheming to get the best contracts from the best companies to prove himself. Everly Ribinski is a art gallery owner who also comes from the wrong side of the tracks and embraces her heritage and past that makes her who she is today. She is also Tyler's upstairs neighbor, his tenant and the bain of Tyler's existence. This is a good enemies to lovers romance and lots of fun! The angst that goes on between these two kept me smiling all the way through but, I found myself wishing there was a little more of a spark between them. I have read the other two books in this series which were great but this story kind of fell short for me.

    Too much narrative and crude language.

    The constant narrative and language was a turn off for me. It felt like a "Fifty Shades of Grey" wannabe book. It could have been a good book without it.

    The best of the series.

    The Schemer is a truly realistic insight into the minds of those who strive to achieve their dream and forget their roots. But then there are those who prefer to beat the odds, grab life by the horns and rise above while remembering where they came from and how far they've come. And that's what it eventually boils down to when it comes to Everly and Tyler. Inspire of the connection he has with her and the mind-blowing chemistry, he still has a different picture of his perfect partner. Even though he has been burned once before by his idea of "the perfect woman". It takes pretty much every one of his friends though to make him realize that what he truly desires has been living in the apartment above him all along. And it's going to take him stripping his soul bare and being nakedly honest with " Ms No BS, I am who I am" Everly to win her back.
