Book Review: TOMBOY by Avery Flynn

How exactly has one good deed landed me in the penalty box?

TOMBOY, an all-new, sexy romantic comedy from USA Today bestselling author Avery Flynn, is available now!


Ice Knights defenseman Zach Blackburn has come down with the flu, and my BFF—his PR manager—begs me to put my nursing degree to use and get him back to health. Of course she would call in a favor for the most hated man in Harbor City.

But when he’s finally on the mend and I’m sneaking out of his place, everything goes sideways. Paparazzi spot me and pictures, plus accusations that I slept with him, fly faster than a hockey puck.
At first, all of Harbor City wants my blood—or to give me a girlie-girl makeover. But then…the team finally wins a game. And now this fickle town wants me with the big jerk twenty-four seven.

Argh. I never slept with him the first time! But no one will listen. Then the grumpy bastard goes and promises to break his no-fan-appearances rule to help raise money for a free health clinic—but only if I’m rink-side at every game. That’s not a deal I can turn down.

But when the team keeps winning, and I realize there’s more to him than his bad reputation, suddenly remembering to keep my real hands off my fake date gets harder and harder to do.

Avery Flynn, if you ever decide to change the cover of TOMBOY I will be extremely disappointed. I love the model on a skateboard and even more, I love that Fallon Hartigan does actually ride a skateboard in the book!

The Hartigan’s are back, and this time it’s no-nonsense Fallon’s turn to find love. Her just-get-the-job-done mantra and take-no-prisoners attitude is intimidating to many. She’s pragmatic and uncomplicated in many a thing, that it takes someone with a keen eye to see the treasure that is the Fallon underneath the shell.

And who would have thought it, but the man that makes the grade is none other than surly, grouchy and unfriendly Zach Blackburn. I loved Zach, and he is going on my list of boyfriends. He is suffering. He is suffering from the flu when he and Fallon meet, but he is suffering from a life of disappointment, betrayal and deceit courtesy of his parents. Is it any wonder he is not inclined to get close to people?

I loved Zach and Fallon. These kids are crazy for each other. Their conversations and banter make for an entertaining read. I enjoyed that they actually listened to what the other has to say, and when their walls begin to drop, I love that they showed each other in word and deed how they felt.

In TOMBOY, Flynn focuses on the perils of social media and the result of the lynch mob mentality of these keyboard crusaders. It’s uncomfortable reading at times and this is a good thing. It’s good for people to be reminded that on the other side there is a human being with feelings.

Even though Flynn tackles some heavy subjects in this series, her writing style adds a light touch. These books are not an angst fest; they are positive, optimistic and highly entertaining. 


USA Today 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.
