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.
I found the first book in the series tested my credulity pretty strongly, but the chemistry was good and the story amusing. The second book, however, totally jumped the shark. The idea that a man would volunteer to help a woman he'd just met seduce her teen crush because said hero's mom wanted her other son to reconcile with his former bestie (crush guy) makes soooo much sense. It makes almost as much sense as the notion that a woman who believed herself still devoted to her teen crush would see no problem with engaging in tons of dirty sex with her "instructor." The hero also has this huge, supposedly shameful secret that would require the entire population of Harbor City to be blind and not very bright. It's the sort of thing that makes you want to look under the bed to see if there are any grown-ups there. Please.
All of this continues until basically the lovers have a big blow out because each believes the other can't possibly love [insert gendered pronoun here]. They then enjoy a period of intense, unwashed and realistically smelly misery; have separate, identical epiphanies with the assistance of loving family and friends; and finally achieve the requisite HEA with a big, showy gesture.
Now, to be absolutely fair, this plot pretty much sums up a large percentage of the contemporaries out there, and Flynn's version is mostly entertaining. Her characters are likable and quite well drawn. Family and friends are a big part of her stories, and the interactions among her unique and quirky cast are the high point of the novel.
Also, as I may have mentioned, there is a LOT of sex. I'm fine with the vo-dee-o-doe, but beyond a certain point, it kind of detracts from the actual romancey part. After a while I found myself skimming the sex scenes because they were much of a muchness and didn't really move the plot along.
I gave this novel three stars because it's a lively, non-angsty romance, but lacking in believability and feels of any depth. I'll read the next book in the series, because I like the author's characters and writing style, then probably take a break.
Felicia Hartigan is tiny nerdy Scientist with some big chips on her shoulder thanks to being the smallest of a boisterous Irish family. She also has the hots for Tyler, Hudson's brother's ex-best friend.
She lights Hudson's flames but won't even give him a second glance. He is tasked by his mother to repair the friendship between his brother Sawyer and Tyler and thinks Felicia could help. So he charms her with the one thing she wants most, helping her to get Tyler.
While his 'lessons' are unconventional, his efforts are so steamy you may just want to sign up for classes. These two are delightful, smoldering and so great together! I love it. If you liked Helene Carlyle in The Negotiator, you are going to love her in The Charmer.
Hudson is the younger brother of Sawyer Carlyle from the first book, The Negotiator, and an all-around charmer (hence the title of this book). At a fundraising event he fixates on a nerdy, tiny ant researcher, Felicia, and ends up agreeing to help her begin dating his brothers best friend, Tyler. What he doesn't plan on is the crazy chemistry they have together.
Felicia has a plan - a list - things to accomplish before she is thirty (in a month) and the last thing unchecked on this list is dating Tyler. The problem is, he doesn't see her as anything other than a little sister. When Hudson charms his way into her life with a plan for her to nab Tyler and a small request for her to help him she is hard pressed to say no. Any attraction she feels to Hudson, while he is helping her with her Tyler issue is just transference, right?
sizzlingly sexy, laugh out loud funny, with just enough emotion and angst to keep it very interesting I thoroughly enjoyed this read! Up next, The Schemer!
