Wanted: Personal Buffer
Often snarly, workaholic executive seeks “buffer” from annoying outside distractions AKA people. Free spirits with personal boundary issues, excessive quirks, or general squeamishness need not apply. Salary negotiable. Confidentiality required.
Workaholic billionaire Sawyer Carlyle may have joked he needed a buffer from their marriage-obsessed mom,...more
Appearing as complete opposites, the chemistry between Sawyer and Clover makes for highly entertaining reading. Not only are Clover quirks laugh out lou ...more
Hang on to your knickers ladies, the Carlyle brothers are in town, and boy do they know how to endear themselves to you.
Although The Negotiator gives us Sawyer’s story, I was just as intrigued by Hudson, and will say straight off the bat that I hope the author has his story in the pipeline especially after the little tease she left us dangling with in the epilogue for this story.

I loved this story … I laughed, cursed and then laughed some more as the story unfolded. Jane “Clover” Lee was magnificent. Sawyer Carlyle was an ass. But, when they got together and negotiated the terms of their agreem ...more
First, the author attempted to seem worldly in her knowledge of other countries/languages but failed. Singapore for instance is a first world country with English being the language of instruction in the country. Yes we do speak other languages but English is the first language of most people. If you've got an education in Singapore, you would know that it is all in English other than if you were learning a foreign language rel ...more
I was kinda disappointed.
It felt like a big, that's it? more than anything.
For a book that's called, The Negotiator, there wasn't a lot of negotiating. Sad, cause that was my favourite part of the entire book. Clover outsmarting and beating Sawyer at his own game.
Apart from the masterful negotiating it was pretty run of the mill really, I did like that final proposal though, kinda daring. xD
Ah yes. The steam was high in this one. :P
Not sure if that' ...more
This is one of those superficial books that is all about the superficial. Good looking rich powerful hero that looks good on paper, whom is arrogant, conceited, self-important and weak. (I mean, he is a grown men who needs a female to run interference with his mum......hand packed much? Sorry, a Mummy's boy gets all the disdain from me.)
Flaky heroine whom is weak, inconsistent and insecure.
I understand this is fiction, but I find it annoying when the plots doesn't make logical sense, an ...more
Clover has applied for the job of 'buffer' that Sawyer's brother put in the paper. Clover likes to be independent and doesn't want a permanent job. So with those two things she has ended up doing a lot of odd jobs like a 'snake milker'. So Clover thinks this will be the next new experience for her.
Sawyer is the oldest son of a very large business that is family owned. His father has died about three year ...more
It had a good start and I liked the quirkiness of Clover. It was a nice quick read. It was enjoyable.
First Date: I loved how our first date began and right away I adored, quirky, activist and adventurer Jane "Clover" Lee. Sawyers Mom has decided he needs to be wed and has been driving him crazy with a parade of potential partners. Mrs. Carlye is a force and Sawyer's younger brother unbeknownst to him decides to help him out by running an ad for a personal buffer. The set up is hilarious and how Clover got the job had me grinning and settling in.
And i think the author not done a thorough research on the countries mention on the book.
Overal this is OK read.
The Negotiator kept me company with laughter and steam on my way to and from work. Fun, hot and feisty, it kept things light.
The Negotiator helped me laugh while commuting - which is not that frequent an occurrence really. I leave the house before it's light out, and arrive very early at work to prepare things. Getting prepared with Sawyer and Clover made everything lighter.
Because his mom was always setting him up with s ...more
Sawyer Carlyle is the oldest son who feels the full weight of the responsibility of his family and of his family's business after his father's recent and unexpected passing. His mother ...more
plus ... the whole foreign language turrets thing was distracting, and I didn't see the point.
I mean the girl just spewed random foreign words out of her mouth at random times and none it made sense to me.
also ... a little research on the whole what language foreign countries actually speak wouldn't hurt before you write that into a story.
spoiler alert: Malay is NOT the main language of Singapore so why would it be useful in ...more

The Negotiator was such a good read.
I loved the storyline, the characters Sawyer and Clover were fun, sweet, quirky, passionate and watching their relationship develop kept me turning the pages, loved them!
Sawyer and Clover were both such wonderful and entertaining characters.
They made me laugh, they made me sad, they touched my soul with their honesty and heart and they frustrated me with their stubbornness.
These two were total opposites but the more time they spent together the more ...more
No shy virgins
No manwhore (even though he does talk a big game)
"Sawyer Carlyle, are you trying to flatter your way into my panties?"
"Are you even wearing any?"
Quick wit, hilarious banter, and sizzling hot chemistry made this a romance ...more
Clover Lee is a free bird. She loves traveling around the world with no strings attached. When she's hired by Sawyer to act as a buffer between him and his marriage-focused mother, it's just a job financing her upcoming trip to Australia.
By evening though, she's his fake fiancé. I love these tropes. Well they are scorching hot together but so wildly different as people. Can they overcome their ide ...more
The plot sounded really promising, but was just filled with too many cliches! Starting off this book, I was really intrigued by the promise of a witty and bantry romance, but in the end I was just too busy rolling my eyes at the various cliches of an office romance. The fact that the love interest, Sawyer Carlyle, needed soo long to open up made me realize that in the end I was just too indifferent about him to really get into this story. Clover was nice, and sma ...more
Sawyer Carlyle is a workaholic billionaire whose mother is determined to have married to one of the young ladies she keeps introducing him to. He loves his Mum but struggles to get her to let him lead his life how he wants - and preferably without all the potential bridal candidates she keeps presenting to him. His brother advertises for someone to act as a buffer, someone to prevent those endeavouring to distract him from his w ...more
Sawyer, a man whose whole life revolves around his job, has no intention of settling down with one of the many women his mother is trying to set him up with. He also has no intention of doing what his brother suggests and hiring a "buffer" between him and his mother.
He changes his mind, however, when Clover, a "free spirit" whose life consists of short-term adventure ...more
