Don't miss the hot new romantic comedy follow-up to the smash hit The Negotiator...

Hot, filthy rich, and usually irresistible, Hudson Carlyle just met the one woman in Harbor City who’s immune to his legendary charm. Nerdy ant researcher Felicia Hartigan is the unsexiest dresser ever. She trips over air. And she’s in love with totally the wrong man. Hudson can’t stop
thinking about her.

His regular moves won’t work here. He’s going to need a new plan, starting with helping her win over the man she thinks she wants. And if in the process she ends up falling for Hudson instead? Even better. Step one, charm her panties off. Step two, repeat step one as frequently as possible.

But what if the famous Carlyle charm finally fails him when he needs it most? Or worse, what if she figures out the one secret he’s kept from everyone, including his family, and walks away for good?


The Charmer is a feel-good romance that will put a contented smile on your face whenever you think about Hudson and Felicia. “ –Emma, Book Angel Book Reviews

“Well this was just all kinds of cute and sweet and feely and FUN!” –Jessica A., Goodreads

“What makes this book so much fun is the witty dialogue between Hudson and Felicia.  He really is a charmer and readers won’t be able to resist him any more than Felicia can!” –Betsey N., NetGalley

A SEXY and DELIGHTFUL romantic comedy that will leave you with the biggest smile on your face!” –Shayna Renee’s Spicy Reads

“What a shame that we can only award 5 stars. Because once in a while a book comes along that stands out and I think 'THIS one. This one deserves extra accolades.' I'm sure others have said it, but The Charmer truly will charm you. The dialogue is smart and snappy, the characters are well-rounded, and the plot will keep you reading straight through from the moment you read the very first page. I'm not ashamed to admit that I DEVOURED it in a single afternoon.” –Jo S., Goodreads

“An all around charming, fun, sweet, sensual romantic comedy that was humorous and entertaining with a zinger of chemistry! The Charmer gets a ENTHRALLING FIVE SHOOTING STARS! It made me smile, dream big, and had that perfect mix of humor and heat! A very WORTHY read.” –Marie B., Goodreads

The Charmer is book two in the series, Harbor City, by Avery Flynn. This is my very first book by Avery. Not having read the first book in this series did not take away from my enjoyment of this one at all. But I will warn you that if you haven’t read it, you will want to after you get caught up in ...more

A SEXY and DELIGHTFUL romantic comedy that will leave you with the biggest smile on your face! THE CHARMER is a follow-up to THE NEGOTIATOR, and it follows two different characters so it can be read as a complete standalone romance. Although, I will tell you that I absolutely ADORED THE NEGOTIATOR j ...more

As soon as I finished The Negotiator, I wanted The Charmer so I could dig into Hudson's story. So when I was able to score an ARC of The Charmer, I was thrilled! This second book in the series was just as good as the first! I loved it! Laugh out loud hilarious, so unique, romantic, super sexy and ju ...more

By Ivy September 24, 2017


I enjoyed my first Avery Flynn book. Hudson Carlyle and Felicia Hartigan’s romance is the second in the Harbor City series but it’s not necessary to read the first book to enjoy this one. I actually had the first book buried on my Mountain o' TBR, but hadn't gotten around to it, since I'd heard mixe ...more

By Guilty Pleasures Book Reviews September 26, 2017

The Charmer was totally Avery Flynn. A real RomCom that combined humor, angst, love and lots and lots of Honeypot Ants. Hudson and Felicia were the ultimate definition of “opposites attract” and they were hilarious while realizing it. Hudson was such a multifaceted man who knew his true self but was ...more

This review was originally posted on (un)Conventional Bookviews
The Charmer was both charming, hot and sweet! I loved Hudson and Felicia - even as they were both trying to deny their feelings for the other.

The Charmer shows a different aspect of Hudson - he was the aloof brother in The ...more

Hudson is a man who knows how to text a lady, "I bet you’re cute and commando. That’s the mental picture I have right now. It’s hot." Hudson likes to push his woman at times to give him a bigger ego, “a man with exceedingly talented hands?” He dropped his voice to a whisper. “And tongue? And—” I lov ...more

By Nicole February 27, 2018

Gah! This was just all kinds of awesome! Totally loving this series and Avery Flynn hit the nail on the head with this romantic comedy. Hudson, the easy-going, charming Carlyle brother is an enigma.

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 w ...more

Avery Flynn is back with the second book in the Harbor City series and if the cover alone doesn’t entice you alone to buy the book (major, swoonage) let me say this BUY THE DAMN BOOK IT’S AWESOME!!!! to see if it will convince you.

LOVED this book! These stories are SO good. I love this city Avery created in another series and brought us to again. Hudson had my heart from the beginning, while I wanted to bat the ant woman over the head. She came to her senses and it was perfect! Can't wait for the next one, because yeah, that ...more

I loved this one. It's so well written, the character are so loveable and even if the plot is a little predictable, it has small details that make you stay interested until the end.

Definitely one of the best books I've read in 2017. ...more

By Raine February 26, 2019

Loved it!

I thought it was great that Felicia was a science need who specializes in ants, more specifically, the honeypot ant. I thought it was hilarious what the honeypot ant is actually known for. I also really like how Hudson fell for Felicia even though she was dressed up kind of dorky during the ...more
