What do Kelly Clarkson and Kanye West have in common? Avery Flynn’s new Harbor City romantic comedy, The Schemer
Guess who’s here today?!
One of my favoritest authors to hang with, whose stories always make me laugh, shiver, and sometimes even cry. Avery Flynn, the GraveTells 2016 Author of the Year, is joining us today, lovelies, and she’s treating us to a peek inside her newest release, The Schemer. I challenged Avery to pick a theme song for her hero and heroine, and here’s what she chose!
Sing It Loud!
I love Tyler and Everly, my hero and heroine in The Schemer, because they are both stubborn, determined, smart people who sometimes have no frickin’ clue what they’re doing. Those are my favorite kind of characters to write because they always have so much to learn and make some hilarious mistakes along the way. So if each of them had a theme song, this would be it:
Love So Soft by Kelly Clarkson. Everly is all about the tough chick persona and no apologies for who she is. I just love her.
Stronger by Kanye West. Tyler is all about making his mark on the world and what doesn’t kill him, definitely makes him stronger—at least that’s his philosophy. The man has a chip on his shoulder for sure.
Tyler and Everly are both stubborn, determined, smart people who sometimes have no frickin’ clue what they’re doing.
Read an excerpt
Everly made the choice. “Tails for the parking spot.”
“Sugar,” Tyler said, tossing the coin with a hard flick, “get ready to park at the end of the garage for the foreseeable future.”
She dropped her keys the moment the coin went airborne. It flew up into the air, flipping end over end several times before she snatched it out of the air, turned it, smacked it down on the top of her hand, and held her palm over it. 2B—okay, Tyler Jacobson, she knew his name—just stared at her bug-eyed and slack-jawed.
Boys. They are so fucking easy.
Well, he hadn’t been up until now, anyway. The dark Adonis who looked like a rich woman’s David Gandy with his black hair, blue eyes, and perfect body—my God, how much time did he spend in the gym getting hot and sweaty? She could picture his biceps flexing with every curl. His thighs straining with each weight-bearing squat. His back glistening as he—
Where was she? Oh yeah, shocking Mr. Cocksure Know-It-All by not following his playbook. Deal with it, 2B.
“What? You don’t flip so it lands on the ground like some kind of heathen, do you?” she asked as he stared at her like she was a Rubik’s Cube that needed to be solved. “You toss. I catch. That’s only fair, right?”
Tyler recovered quickly, she had to give him that. The black-haired, blue-eyed devil snapped his mouth shut, ending the motion with a cocky smile that didn’t affect her at all. Liar.

Don't miss the hot new romantic comedy follow-up to the smash hit
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?
