    Muffin Top is book two in The Hartigans series by Avery Flynn. I enjoyed book one in this series so much, Butterface, so I?ve been so looking forward to this book. Frankie Hartigan is the oldest of the Hartigan siblings, at thirty-three years old. He?s an Irish red headed firefi...

    I cannot with the title. I also cannot with the premise of the story. I?m plus sized and I eat and don?t eat salads. It?s not like all curvy people make an unbreakable vow to never eat or like salad. And if these starter clichs are not enough, the heroine has to be brash and...

    Great story! ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ There is no person in the world who believes they are perfect so including the curvy and chunky women of the world in this story is smart. Everyone can relate to and has probably felt and experienced the uncomfortableness during those awk...

    Edit: Hero?s father thinks he owes/owed his then teenage son no explanation for what the kid thought was him being a front row audience of cheating on his mum because the father actually didn?t cheat??? You may not be a cheater, but you sir, are a rotten father and and an epic fa...

    NOW LIVE! Amazon US * Amazon UK I'm on the fence a bit about this book. The story was enjoyable and I liked the premise of it with the not-so-perfect heroine. It was unique in that it didn't feature the cliche type of romance heroine that is portrayed as perfect and stunning. Y...

    Find this review and others at Carlene Inspired. I don't know what it is about 2018, but I am so grateful for the relatable characters that authors are writing right now. Lucy is a size twenty, brilliant, independent woman with a knack for helping influential men out of tight spots....

    I really wanted to like this book. I was very excited to see a plus size female lead, had high hopes for a strong character. Alas, I was disappointed. Lucy Kavanaugh is a size 20. She is smart, snarky, funny and way too self-deprecating. As in constantly. ?Look, I?ll let you in ...

    Dear reader, before you start this book I have a warning for you, just hand over your heart and panties to the giant ginger that is Frankie Hartigan and don?t fight it. You won?t be sorry. I know I wasn?t. Warning given, I can now say that this is a book that EVERYONE who rea...

    A lot of authors write RomCom but very few of them pull it off with the class and finesse that Avery Flynn does. Muffin Top, even though it tackles a serious social problem in today's society, was written in a way that Frankie Hartigan will steal your heart and Lucy Kavanagh will h...

    Contrarily to what the blurb presage, the book is written at the third person, not the first, but I absolutely didn't care because I had too much fun reading it :) The hero is Frankie Hartigan. A hot ginger firefighter of thirty-three years old who's been forced to take a vacation b...

    After reading and enjoying the first book in Avery Flynn?s The Hartigans series, Butterface, I was eager to dive into the second book. There was a wee bit of tentatively regarding Muffin Top, but I?m glad I jumped in. After finishing it, I?m extremely eager to get my hands on boo...

    You know, there?s a saying that you can?t be happy with someone else, until you?re happy with yourself. The entire book was of Lucy?s self deprecating, overly defensive self loathing. Quite honestly, it seemed like nothing the poor guy said or did was good enough. Her behav...

    Frankie Hartigan is on a mandatory three week vacation from his job as the town?s sexy fireman. While he ponders his life and his inability to commit to a real loving and lasting relationship at the local cop bar, he comes to the rescue of one Lucy Kavanagh. Lucy is his brother?s f...

    I thoroughly enjoyed Muffin Top - Frankie and Lucy are both so much more than meets the eye. They both vulnerable and sensitive and insecure and the way that they help each other grow is really beautiful. Their connection happens sort of seamlessly and so naturally that it is a relief....

    Avery Flynn has done it again! Oh good grief, I'm speechless. This book was so freaking amazing. Flipping pages, my emotions all over the place, laughing one minute, melting in my socks and then feeling a little tear starting. Yup, book hangover time! The best book hangover ever! So w...

    This book! This fudging crazy book!!! It's gonna take a week to come down from the high this one gave me. Like my emotions are so all over the place I can't even process them properly haha. This was such an emotional yet amazing read. It had a little of everything. From the sweet ...

    "The truth was, Lucy would eat him alive. People might say firefighters were adrenaline junkies who rushed into danger when others ran away, but every one of them had finely tuned survival instincts. He knew just where that line was, and for some reason Lucy Kavanagh set off every war...

    I received this book for free from Publisher in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review. I?m a reader who loves a book to be slightly different, to have characters outside the norm in some way. Which, probably...

    Frankie is the oldest Hartigan sibling by 6 minutes...a protector at heart...a loyal person...a true hero and fireman who rushes in to save the day... is also a ladies man. After being forced to take up his holiday leave he finds himself at a loss how to spend his leave... until he swo...

    Apparently I have a new go-to/one click author who goes by the name of Avery Flynn! Her second book in the Hartigan's series stole my heart just as much as ButterFace did. Muffin Top one of Gina's best friends Lucy Kavanagh, and the oldest of the Hartigan siblings Frankie. When the two...

    Muffin Top is book two in The Hartigans series by Avery Flynn. I enjoyed book one in this series so much, Butterface, so I?ve been so looking forward to this book. Frankie Hartigan is the oldest of the Hartigan siblings, at thirty-three years old. He?s an Irish red headed firefi...

    I cannot with the title. I also cannot with the premise of the story. I?m plus sized and I eat and don?t eat salads. It?s not like all curvy people make an unbreakable vow to never eat or like salad. And if these starter clichs are not enough, the heroine has to be brash and...

    Great story! ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ There is no person in the world who believes they are perfect so including the curvy and chunky women of the world in this story is smart. Everyone can relate to and has probably felt and experienced the uncomfortableness during those awk...

    Edit: Hero?s father thinks he owes/owed his then teenage son no explanation for what the kid thought was him being a front row audience of cheating on his mum because the father actually didn?t cheat??? You may not be a cheater, but you sir, are a rotten father and and an epic fa...

    NOW LIVE! Amazon US * Amazon UK I'm on the fence a bit about this book. The story was enjoyable and I liked the premise of it with the not-so-perfect heroine. It was unique in that it didn't feature the cliche type of romance heroine that is portrayed as perfect and stunning. Y...

    Find this review and others at Carlene Inspired. I don't know what it is about 2018, but I am so grateful for the relatable characters that authors are writing right now. Lucy is a size twenty, brilliant, independent woman with a knack for helping influential men out of tight spots....

    I really wanted to like this book. I was very excited to see a plus size female lead, had high hopes for a strong character. Alas, I was disappointed. Lucy Kavanaugh is a size 20. She is smart, snarky, funny and way too self-deprecating. As in constantly. ?Look, I?ll let you in ...

    Dear reader, before you start this book I have a warning for you, just hand over your heart and panties to the giant ginger that is Frankie Hartigan and don?t fight it. You won?t be sorry. I know I wasn?t. Warning given, I can now say that this is a book that EVERYONE who rea...

    A lot of authors write RomCom but very few of them pull it off with the class and finesse that Avery Flynn does. Muffin Top, even though it tackles a serious social problem in today's society, was written in a way that Frankie Hartigan will steal your heart and Lucy Kavanagh will h...

    I like this series about the Hartigan siblings. Funny and nice....like following a tv series. ...

    Contrarily to what the blurb presage, the book is written at the third person, not the first, but I absolutely didn't care because I had too much fun reading it :) The hero is Frankie Hartigan. A hot ginger firefighter of thirty-three years old who's been forced to take a vacation b...

    After reading and enjoying the first book in Avery Flynn?s The Hartigans series, Butterface, I was eager to dive into the second book. There was a wee bit of tentatively regarding Muffin Top, but I?m glad I jumped in. After finishing it, I?m extremely eager to get my hands on boo...

    You know, there?s a saying that you can?t be happy with someone else, until you?re happy with yourself. The entire book was of Lucy?s self deprecating, overly defensive self loathing. Quite honestly, it seemed like nothing the poor guy said or did was good enough. Her behav...

    Frankie Hartigan is on a mandatory three week vacation from his job as the town?s sexy fireman. While he ponders his life and his inability to commit to a real loving and lasting relationship at the local cop bar, he comes to the rescue of one Lucy Kavanagh. Lucy is his brother?s f...

    I really wanted to like this book. I was very excited to see a plus size female lead, had high hopes for a strong character. Alas, I was disappointed. Lucy Kavanaugh is a size 20. She is smart, snarky, funny and way too self-deprecating. As in constantly. ?Look, I?ll let you in ...

    Dear reader, before you start this book I have a warning for you, just hand over your heart and panties to the giant ginger that is Frankie Hartigan and don?t fight it. You won?t be sorry. I know I wasn?t. Warning given, I can now say that this is a book that EVERYONE who rea...

    A lot of authors write RomCom but very few of them pull it off with the class and finesse that Avery Flynn does. Muffin Top, even though it tackles a serious social problem in today's society, was written in a way that Frankie Hartigan will steal your heart and Lucy Kavanagh will h...

    Three and a half stars. Lucy Kavanagh is a kick-ass PR fixer, its her job to smooth over whatever disaster her mega-successful clients have created and that's what earns her the big bucks. In her job she's loud and fearless but although she talks a big talk, in private she makes jok...
