Muffin Top by Avery Flynn: Blog Tour – Review and Excerpt

Muffin Top by Avery Flynn: Blog Tour – Review and Excerpt

“Smart, sassy, and utterly delightful! Get ready to fall head-over-heels in love with Lucy, one of the wittiest and most inspiring heroines I’ve ever met!”

– Annika Martin New York Times bestselling author

Muffin Top, a hot romantic comedy from USA Today bestselling author Avery Flynn is available now!

Muffin Top by Avery Flynn is the second installment in The Hartigans series and from the first page proves it’s one-click worthy. It’s time to add books to your shelves and e-readers as the winter shortly approaches. I’m always on the search for a book that can stand on its own with a plot that is worth my time, money, and soul. 

Frankie Hartigan is best described as a passionate man both professionally and personally. A dedicated fireman who can’t imagine doing anything else is less than thrilled with a forced three week vacation. Rest and relaxation aren’t part of his vocabulary. One night at his brother’s bar will change everything. With a reputation for being a sure thing and a caution sign that warns women to keep their expectations low. Is that who he really is? Is it possible that he wants something more? One woman will have him on the edge of the flames and this need to be with only one woman will give way to one of my top reads this year!

Lucy Kavanagh is tired of the assumptions, innuendos, and horrible things people say because of her size. The only people who seem to be offended or bothered by her weight are the people who vocalize their thoughts. A chance encounter at a local bar leaves her once again defending her size to a less than charming patron. Out of no where an unexpected knight rescues her without any expectations in return. Readers I need to state that Lucy isn’t a fair maiden in need of rescue rather a heroine who can handle herself just fine despite the emotional toll it’s taken. Is there a man who can love and appreciate her for who she is? Will this handsome knight show her heart that she too can be someones fairy tale ending?

Lucy is headed home to attend her high school reunion but attending without a date only proves what everyone has believed about her. Will Frankie’s idea provide the resolution she’s been seeking? If Lucy and Frankie can survive three weeks together, they will discover that holding on to bitterness and anger isn’t always a great idea. Will they finally come to peace with their past and pave a path to a happy ending?

Family is everything when it comes the core of Avery’s books, and this family is anything but typical. The characters are layered and any reader can connect with their past, present, and heart. The little insecurities we cling to don’t matter to those that love the “total package” and will defend against those who think otherwise?

The dialogue is genuine, full of emotions and will cause most readers to appreciate all our partners have to offer and give us courage to stand up and defend what we believe We have all second guessed someones motives wondering what if, or is “this thing” real. Hold on tight, this book adventure is worthy of a lifetime movie!

Again this must read tackles the biggest issues we face, we all have something we dislike about our bodies and try to hide behind. Avery takes that insecurity and delves into uncharted territory as Frankie and Lucy tackle their own skeletons to find a happy-ever-after. It’s raw, tender, and has a ton of sparks and delivers one heck of a burn readers! I can’t wait to read more!

If you’re looking in the mood for a hot read this book is scorchin. Caution readers, consuming this story might lead to an unexpected need to turn on the A/C.

While this is part of The Hartigans series, it can be read as a standalone.

Excerpt:

The temptation to say “Yes, Frankie, please squash him like a bug while I clap and watch” was so, so strong—like, the guys who pull semi trucks with their teeth strong. Instead, Lucy played along with her best friend’s fiancé’s brother— OMG, that was now the name of her imaginary all-girl ska band—and smiled sweetly up at him.

“He was bothered by my dinner order, honey.”

“Really?” Frankie looked down at her plate, over to the dips#*t, and then right at her. There was no missing the devil in his eyes right before he turned his attention back to the other man. “What’s wrong with what my girl’s eating?”

Mr. In Her Business blanched. Literally. The color drained out of his face so fast that he resembled one of those swipe right before and after photos on makeover blogs. How in the hell she managed to not laugh out loud she had no frickin’ clue.

“N-n-nothing,” the man stuttered.

Nope. He was not getting off that easily.

She looked up at Frankie, still standing next to her chair, his big hand braced on the back of it, and said in the clueless voice that anyone with a brain would know meant there was danger ahead, “He said I should have ordered a salad, then I might have a chance to move from a five to an eight. I’m a five because I have great tits.”

Thunderous didn’t begin to describe the dark look of pure vengeance that crossed Frankie’s face, making even the freckles that crossed over the bridge of his nose look scary. Mr. Buttinsky made a little squeaking noise that reminded Lucy of the sound of air coming out of a balloon when someone pulled the tip taut as it was deflating. Frankie took a step forward, menace vibrating off of him in waves. The other guy didn’t bother to say a word, he just took off, weaving his way at a fast clip through the crowded bar and out the front door. Lucy liked to imagine that he peed his pants a little as he did so.

“Thanks, Frankie,” she said to the man still staring at the departing figure of Mr. Peed His Pants. “I owe you one.”

Her ginger knight in well-fitting jeans and a T-shirt made some kind of noise that maybe was a response in the affirmative. It sounded kinda like “no problem.” Whatever. She was used to that from guys. She was only of interest until a hotter, skinnier, or prettier woman came along. It was the universal fat chick cloaking device.

Determined not to let it annoy her as much as it usually would, she turned back to her jalapeño cheeseburger, spicy fries, and soda. Now she could finally enjoy her dinner in peace.

Alas, it wasn’t meant to be. Frankie clunked down a three-fourths filled mug of beer on the other side of her table, pulled out the chair across from her, and sat down. Before she could even ask what he was doing, he waved the waitress over and told her he wanted whatever Lucy was eating, plus an extra order of fries and another beer. Once she’d left, he turned his attention to Lucy and gave her what could only be described as a vibrator smile. She named it that in her head—thankfully only in her head—because she now had a desperate need for her vibrator and maybe a fresh pack of batteries.

“You’re not gonna make me eat alone now that we’re on a date, are you?” he asked, swiping one of her fries.

About Avery

USA Today bestselling romance author Avery Flynn has three slightly-wild children, loves a hockey-addicted husband and is desperately hoping someone invents the coffee IV drip.

She fell in love with romance while reading Johanna Lindsey’s Mallory books. It wasn’t long before Avery had read through all the romance offerings at her local library. Needing a romance fix, she turned to Harlequin’s four books a month home delivery service to ease the withdrawal symptoms. That worked for a short time, but it wasn’t long before the local book stores’ staffs knew her by name.

Avery was a reader before she was a writer and hopes to always be both. She loves to write about smartass alpha heroes who are as good with a quip as they are with their *ahem* other God-given talents. Her heroines are feisty, fierce and fantastic. Brainy and brave, these ladies know how to stand on their own two feet and knock the bad guys off theirs.

Butterface by USA Today Bestselling Author Avery Flynn

Butterface by USA Today Bestselling Author Avery Flynn

Butterface by USA Today Bestselling Author Avery Flynn is a story about acceptance, love, and finding the courage to follow your heart without caring what other think. A wedding planner and a cop are about to find out what happens when they find love in the least suspecting place. 

Gina Luca is tired of being the laugh of the party or the joke to laugh at. Can she finally find a man who will love her and stand up to anyone who challenges her beauty? A woman with drive, focus and passion and a family who will protect her at all costs, can they save her heart from being shattered into a million pieces? 

Ford Hartigan will overcome obstacles to find love. What will happen when a plan to solve a crime implodes? The truth always comes out and sometimes even the best cops can’t see what’s right in front of them.

Games, wicked chemistry and a cast of characters make this a must read book that will hook you from the first page. I loved the opening scene, it was emotional, exciting, and full of all the sexy witty one-liners we love from Avery.

Have you ever felt inadequate with one or more features? We are all human and this book delves into that black hole, how we see ourselves and how others see us. Is it possible for the sexy hot guy to fall in love with someone who considers themselves average and the center of one to many pranks?

True love looks beyond our physical features, doesn’t care about our imperfections, it embraces them. Avery has taken a topic and made it relatable, loveable, and sexy.

This spicy adventure is best enjoyed with your favorite iced-beverage, a cozy chair, and maybe a fan. I received an ARC from Entangled Publishing for a fair and honest

To set this up, Gina Luca and Ford Hartigan are at a wedding and there is a Kiss Cam and an open bar…yes, you read that right.

“I’m not kissing you.”

Unlike Gina, while the wedding guests continued to call for a kiss, he didn’t bother to hide his scowl. Of course, that just made him look even sexier. “Why not?”

Reasons! She clamped her mouth shut before that inanity escaped and called it a victory. Knowing the right thing to say at the right time had never been one of her gifts, so the fact that she managed to keep her trap shut was a total win. When he raised one dark eyebrow in question, she scrambled to come up with something besides because you’re too hot.
“I’m working,” she said.

Ford cocked his head and gave her some premium cop face, that blank suspicious stare that all but screamed you’re full of s%^t. “You don’t think our fine groom, Porter, was on shift when he met Meg at the emergency room after a guy he was arresting took a swing at him with a two-by-four? It’s just a kiss, and then they’ll move on to the next victim.”

She turned her attention back to the big screen display of this horribly awkward moment rather than meeting Ford’s unwavering gaze.

“Do not disrespect the Kiss Cam, Hartigan!” someone bellowed out as the chanting crowd grew more restless. And louder.

“One quick kiss,” he said, his tone grim with a thread of something more vulnerable underneath. “Then, they’ll leave us alone.”

The Schemer by Avery Flynn is sexy, snarky romance with hot banter that’s captivating and emotionally charged. Seriously readers, Avery writes poetic smoldering hot romance that brings us strong heroines who we instantly love despite the hurdles they must overcome. While the heroes need to be shaken and stirred to unlock their true flavor and when they are, oh…it’s absolutely yummy.

Can he rely on his old ways to get what he wants? The odds are against him, his wounds still raw and healing, will his heart survive his wildest plan yet? Has he finally met his match?

An art lover with knack business will find out that the most coveted deal just might threaten her heart. Can she separate business and pleasure? What will happen when she discovers that Tyler hasn’t been honest with her, and his secret may cost them everything. Where there’s smoke there’s fire, and a dash of crazy shenanigans. Oh yes, shenanigans.

It’s time to find out if Tyler and Everly can the ultimate business transaction without sacrificing themselves in the process. When they discover that they have the same goal, they’ll need to let go of the past and trust in each other. Love is best when you don’t see it coming because that’s when the connection is real and unbreakable. Will Everly and Tyler find out with time to spare?

From the Harbor City to Key West, FL it’s time to dive into a book adventure that brings familiar characters, even the meddling ones, back into our lives. This is one book adventure where you will find yourself rooting for the hero, heroine and a few other fabulous characters because Avery is just that good.

Scorchin – Caution, may lead to unexpected need to turn on the A/C.  I received a copy from the Author for a fair and honest review.

It’s time to discover if The Schemer can beat the odds and find love without a plan. While this is part of a series it can be read as a standalone but you might enjoy it best reading Avery’s series in order 😉 One-click now!

Coffee With Author Avery Flynn

Coffee With Author Avery Flynn

Rae: Thank you for hanging out with me. First, if we were meeting at a coffee shop I’d be drinking an spiced Latte with Coconut Milk with chocolate drizzle, what would you order?

Avery: I’m a black coffee girl. Give me the caffeine and nothing else!

Rae: You are currently serving on the Romance Writers of America Board of Directors in the position Director-at-Large. Has that changed how you view the industry? 

Avery: Oh wow, being an RWA director is definitely eye opening. I am amazed by the dedication of the folks on the board.

Rae: What’s the best advice you can give to a newbie writer attending a chapter meeting or the Romance Writers of America annual conference in Denver?

Avery: As for advice, I say go for it, get to that meeting! You will never regret getting to hang out with and learn from some of the best in our profession.

Rae: Let’s talk books – first, congratulations on your upcoming release of The Schemer in your Harbor City Romance series. What was the inspiration for this series and will there be more mischief and shenanigans in the foreseeable future?

Avery: Mischief and shenanigans??? ALWAYS! 🙂 This series really was a brain child of Liz Pelletier and myself. We shot a ton of book ideas back and forth before hitting on the perfect idea with The Negotiator. And, of course, every good hero like Sawyer Carlyle in The Negotiator needs a hot brother with a secret like Hudson Carlyle in The Charmer. Plus, he needs a best friend turned enemy like Tyler Jacobson in The Schemer. I really love the Harbor City Romance series. It’s a series that makes you smile, tear up a bit and will really steam up your eReader.

Rae: Your backlist is extensive with multiple series and standalone reads. What can we expect in 2018? Will there be more books from current series, or new ones in the works? That being said, how do you keep all of your worlds and characters from crossing over?   

Avery: I love world crossovers! These characters all live together in my head so why not on the page too? That’s exactly what happens in 2018 with my Hartigans series. If you’ve read The Charmer, you know the Hartigans are Felicia’s crazy Irish family from across the harbor in Waterbury. They’re just so much fun to write. You’ll get three Hartigans books in 2018 PLUS something totally new from me in the form of a super sexy hero who has to *am tackled by the good people at Entangled Publishing* … Sorry about that, but they won’t let me tell you more. What a bunch of meanies. 🙂

Rae: As a reader who appreciates a book where the cover just screams “read me” despite not reading the blurb, are you involved in any of the design process? FYI – your covers are super sexy and scream “one-click” so please let your team know.

Avery: Right? The folks at Entangled and the designers who work on my indie covers are AMAZING!!! I’m lucky and have input on my covers no matter who is punishing.

Rae: Writing all the words is a challenge, do you have a writing ritual or secret location to get the work done?

Avery: Sheer deadline panic? Stop laughing, that’s pretty much my go to.

Rae: How do you tackle plotting your series? Is it on a massive board, sheets of paper or just write as you go with a simple outline? A lot of authors use Pinterest and make awesome boards to tease readers, are you one of them?

Avery: I am a total plotter but mine is all words, no Pinterest for me.

Rae: When you are not busy writing, you keep readers updated on social media, what are your favorite types of posts, pics, or tweets?

Avery: I am a social media freak – probably a little too much unless I’m under deadline. Twitter is for the snark and fashion commentary. Instagram is pics of my pooches. Facebook is really my favorite place to chat with my fellow romance readers!

Rae: What can we expect to see on the bookshelves in the upcoming months?

Avery: You’ll get the first of the Hartigans books in April so be on the look out!

Rae: Where can readers find you in 2018?

Avery: I’ll be at Rebels Hit the Road in Annapolis, Barbara Vey, RT, RWA and more!

Rae: Thank you for hanging out in the cafe today.

Avery: Thank you so much for having me!
