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

Tyler Jacobson has a plan for everything—except how to handle his completely annoying, utterly frustrating, and totally sexy upstairs neighbor. He couldn't care less if Everly Ribinski thinks he's equally irritating—until he discovers she's the only one who can help him land a business deal that will finally make him feel like he's more than just a guy from the wrong side of the tracks.

Color him shocked when Everly refuses to help, insisting she should have run him over in the parking garage when she had the chance. Harsh. But possibly deserved. Tyler may have spent the last few months reveling in annoying the fiery gallery owner with a dark past, but he's got secret leverage she can't refuse.

If only one meeting didn't turn into a fake date that turned into more. Way more. Like naked and hot as hell more.

The last thing either of them wants is to catch feelings for someone who is so obviously not their type. Good thing that will never happen. Right?

The Schemer is book three in the Harbor City series by Avery Flynn. I fell in love with the second book in this series so there was no hesitation to read this book. And I’m so glad that I did!

Tyler Jacobson grew up on the other side of the harbor. His parents were volatile and never hesitated to tak ...more

If there's one thing I took away from this book it's Avery's ability to show rather than tell. Furthermore, the characters are fully dimensioned they appear so real. Yes, at times Tyler's backstory seemed contrived and the situation with Irena was irritating (hence the four stars) but my golly, the

When I didn't think Avery Flynn could do better than The Negotiator and The Charmer, she brings us The Schemer. Unbelievable! The Schemer was everything that I hoped it would be. I was so sorry to see it end but was really happy with the surprise. You couldn't have shocked me more.

The tagline for this novel is spot on - it really is a hot romantic comedy! It had me laughing out loud as the two main characters interacted.

The Schemer by Avery Flynn is a well written and entertaining read.
I enjoyed the storyline, it held my interest from start to end and I liked the all characters.

The Schemer is the fun and addictive tale of Everly and Tyler. Two people who managed to make it across the tracks.

Everly is a proud woman. She cares for her ill grandmother and has worked her butt off for what she has. Tyler pulled himself from a bad household and went on to become something. He c ...more

I received an ARC of the book for an honest review.

Tyler Jacobsen is a millionaire business man who lives in Harbor City, but grew up on the "other side of the tracks". He's been struggling for years to shed his background and have people see him for who he is now.

Everly Ribinski is from the "other ...more

LOVED this story. Avery has such a humor and life in her writing you feel like you jumped into the story.
Well built characters and secondary characters are always Avery's strength. She weaves a tale that just begs to go on and on. I felt like a voyeur, a sociali ...more

Tyler has been in the background from the beginning of the series with his feud with Sawyer following his ex's gold digging/social climbing ways. At first impression, Tyler appears the epitome of successful, confident businessman, however, it is soon apparent that Tyler carries a lot of insecurities ...more

What a great read! I thoroughly enjoyed this wonderfully written romcom. It left me smiling, recalling the banter between the two lead characters who had much more in common than they originally thought. Two strong personalities with things in their past that they are trying to kept in the past, loo ...more

Gah! Totally loved this! The third and hopefully not the final installment of the Harbor City was so darn cute and funny I couldn't put it down. Tyler Jacobson is a schemer of note. Always plotting and planning, he is six steps ahead of everyone else. He meets his match with feisty art gallery owner ...more

The synopsis sums this book up very well, folks. This feisty art gallery owner heroine, who is from the local blue collar hood and proud of it, and the social status obsessed hero, who tries to distance himself from the very same ties, start off verbally sparring back and forth, all while fighting t ...more

By books are love February 09, 2018

With every book in this series, Avery Flynn has knocked it out of the park and has gotten them to be more entertaining. This one is no exception. In fact I think I like this one the most because of the banter and how Everly never forgets who she is and where she came from. In fact she helps Tyler fi ...more

By Nightbird Novels February 08, 2018

Tyler Jacobson has never hatched a scheme that failed him. From the moment he was old enough to take control of his own life, his sole focus has been on his success and leaving his less than stellar roots behind him.

When Everly Ribinski moves into his building, she is the complete opposite of the ty ...more

3.5-4 stars.

I really enjoyed this one.

This time we hear the story is Tyler. We saw him in the previous books, so we knew a little bit about him. This starts with him meeting Everly moving in to his building. Things go a little awkward for him, lol.

I really liked Everly, she was true to herself and h ...more

“Just as soon as her brain returned from its trip to Lustopia, the realization that she’d just fucked her landlord and quasi-nemesis on the trunk of her car hit her with a force of a Mack truck sliding on a sheet of ice and slamming into a wall made out of marshmallows.”
