Publisher's summary

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 they could stop trying to one-up each other long enough to realize the pranks are nothing more than foreplay. Of course, he figures it out quicker. He's smart like that. Too bad Everly wants nothing to do with him. Or does she? Wait. What is she up to now?

For a man who's always scheming, the best-laid plans never felt so good falling apart....

Contains mature themes.

Maybe a better title.

Not too much scheming going on. Unless you count how the Hero might be at his job. Their was more scheming from supporting characters than main Characters. That and one scheming ex-hobag. The Hero ,Tyler, is more socially screwed up due to his past. He is driven to make himself been seen as someone who is nothing like his family. That is the first problem with this pairing. Is the Hero attracted to the Heroine? Hell yes! But, because she is from where he was and he shuns that, it makes every opportunity they get together become thick with tension. He wants to say the right thing, but screws up and then his stubborn pride and upbringing won't sort it out. The Heroine, Everly, has never forgotten where she came from and is proud of it. She embraces who she is and won't apologize for it. The is very strong and even though he is an ass, she is still kind. I might have thrown that coin away on him. I swear it's rigged! Good story though and good performance. Would like to see Carlo's story too.

1 too many

A repeat of the previous in the series, only more annoying. Why does every woman have to be so bitchy and all the men have to be such jerks? Just asking. It was cute in book 1. Less so in book 2 and wow I want to go deaf in book 3. I listened to the audiobooks. The over done narration in this one

Horrible!

The first 2 in this series we good and I was confident using a credit for the 3rd book would be a good choice. OMG what a mistake! Firstly I love Tatiana and have listened to may of her narrations before but the accent was so bad it was almost insulting and I cannot believe the author approved it. Secondly the H and h were so unappealing that 5 hours into the book and I wouldn’t have cared if they both were hit by a bus. The h was so narrow minded and Condescending that I just couldn’t stand her. Sorry but this book was a big miss and I wouldn’t waste you credit or time.

Fun

The Schemer, as all in the Negotiator Series by Avery Flynn, is a light, fun story. It offers a fun escape.

A Fun Love Story

Fun and flirty, this story is sweet as the love slowly evolves. With great cast of characters, many we’ve met before in other books, the story is enhanced and comes full circle.
Good narrator to present the book in audio.

Didn't like this as much as the others

This is the third in this series and I listened in order. I just didn't feel as connected with this one as the first two. I didn't love the narrator, though she handled multiple different accents and a large number of characters well, but she made Everly sound old and Tyler sounded like a different person using his Harbor City and Waterbury accents. The story just didn't keep my attention well and I read two other books before finally finishing this one and I did that mostly just to get it done. I loved the Hartigan scenes the most and it made me want to reread those books. Also, I appreciated Helene getting her story as well, but I felt we got too little of them before they were suddenly in HEA land. I felt more connected with their relationship arc but we just didn't get enough of it, like it was thrown in to wrap up the series but Tyler and Everly were the focus. It wasn't a bad book but it didn't entertain me or make me swoon the way the others did.

Inconsistent accents

Great voice, expressive, and well paced BUT the inconsistency of the accents drove me crazy and not in a good way!

Another great read❤️

I love how the series ended, but I feel like I haven't reached the end of Harbor City yet. I loved stumbling upon previous characters in this series from previous ones, and it was a fun read. Contrary to what others are saying, I found the narrator's voice to be perfect for this book.
