Author You Have to Read: Avery Flynn

USA Today and Wall Street Journal 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.

Avery has been an auto-buy author for me for a while, now. Her books are funny, sexy, and loads of fun. She writes the kind of heroes you swoon over, and the kind of heroines you want to be besties with. I love her writing style and her sense of humor, and if you haven't read her, you're totally messing out. Here are two of my faves.

Butterface is quite possibly the most charming book I've ever read. The heroine, Gina, is a wedding planner who deals with insecurities we can all relate to. She's sweet and adorable and I promise, you'll root for her from the very beginning. And then we have our hero, Ford. We could all use a Ford in our lives. The chemistry between them is playful and sexy, and the conflict is real and very well done.

Holy. Hotness. Batman. The Negotiator is the beginning of the Harbor City series, and let me tell you, these heroes are HOT. This is a classic example of an opposites attract story, with an uptight hero, and a go-with-the-flow heroine who have sparks flying between them right from the beginning. The banter is witty and fun, and the sex is steamy. The story's main trope is a fake relationship, which is one of my favorites, and super well done here.
