This Year’s Black by Avery Flynn….Blog Tour Stop & Review

TYB Blog Tour Button





A fighter since birth, Allegra “Ryder” Falcon would rather trade in her all-black wardrobe for head-to-toe hot pink than let anyone ever see the cracks in her tough exterior. But one night with a stranger changes everything.

Devin Harris may have given up his MMA fighting dreams for high fashion, but that doesn’t mean he isn’t always in control. So when someone embezzles millions under his watch, he isn’t going to let the private investigator working the case go it alone—even if she is the woman who blew him away in bed and then blew him off.

Just when it seems like it couldn’t get any hotter between Ryder and Devin, the case takes them to a tropical paradise where the danger increases. From the catwalk to the pineapple fields, they have to work together to track down the missing millions before the thief finds—and kills—them.


My review:

This Year’s Black is the second book in author Avery Flynn’s Killer Style series and follows High Heeled Wonder. Like the perfect sweater you love to pair with your favorite worn skinny jeans and pumps, This Year’s Black is a total must in your book wardrobe!

Growing up with all boys, Allegra “Ryder” Falcon is used to having to fight for what she wants. She’s never shied away from a challenge and her biggest one yet is placed in her lap when her brother, and owner of the security firm she’s an investigator with, finally gives her her own case. One she can run exactly how she wants. Of course when she sees who she’ll be working with, run is exactly what she wants to do. Out the door to be exact. One night with a delicious ex-MMA fighter has left her off-kilter and after swearing off relationships for a year, and ignoring his phone calls for too many weeks to count, it would figure that he’s the one she’s set to help with this investigation. What are the odds? Fate must have been wearing her fat day jeans when she threw this mess together. Ryder has no choice but to try her best to ignore the attraction she’s been ignoring since that one hot and steamy night and get all her focus on this case. Too much was at stake. Of course that was all easier said than done when they have to leave the country to go after their suspect. Too much time spent together in too small a space and one thing is bound to lead to another.

Former MMA fighter turned fashion mogul Devin Harris knows there’s a thief in his company and he knows he’s gotta put an end to it. Especially before the impending merger is set to happen because if he didn’t, there would be no merger. He has too many regrets from his past and won’t allow this company to fall because some greedy employee can’t keep her fingers out of the till. Never in a million years did he think the woman he couldn’t stop thinking about since she left his bed would be the one to help save him. Now he not only has a chance to save the company, but also a chance to win Ryder. She wouldn’t end up being a regret he would have to live with.   With a little bit of luck, she would be in his life long after this investigation ends. If they both survive it….

The attraction Ryder is trying to ignore is exactly what Devin will count on to revive the passion they shared that one night. In the midst of death threats, catching a thief, and kicking bad guy ass, will they be able to find something strong and meaningful?

Oh man, I loved this book! Ryder is a strong and confident woman with more than a few hidden soft spots. She’s got a rough and tough personality but knows what her weaknesses are…one being the gorgeous Devin. Knowing she has too much to prove to her family, she tries her best to ignore him and keep him at arm’s length. Ha! With Devin’s persistent ways, she doesn’t stand a chance. That man knows exactly what he’s up against and he may have had many fights in the ring, but he realizes Ryder may be his toughest fight yet. The chemistry and passion between these two is as hot as those red-heeled stilettos we all love. Delicious. The back and forth between them was really well done. Just enough without being too much or not enough.

Of course, all the while the hunt for the embezzler added an intense layer to this story and kept me on the edge of my seat. It was quite a chase for these two and I was worried more than once someone would get seriously hurt. Luckily, Ryder and Devin both have some serious ass-kicking moves.

Over all, this book has it all. Passion, heat, danger, mystery and action all wrapped up in a stylish package. Thank you, Avery, for yet another fantastic read!

About the author: AFlynnAvery 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.
