Book review: Connectivity - Aven Ellis

Overachiever Mary-Kate Grant (who is indeed named after an Olsen Twin) has followed every rule to the letter to pursue her dream of working in TV programming. Ripping a page from the “hard work pays off” playbook, she takes an assistant level job at a Chicago sports network to break into the industry.

MK has no time or desire for a relationship right now—she is totally focused on her career and being independent, unlike the other women in her family.

But MK’s plans are run through the shredder when she finds herself working for William Cumberland, a British media mogul who made his fortune with Connectivity, a social media site. William blows into Chicago just like the winds off Lake Michigan and purchases the group of networks MK works for—and makes her his personal assistant in the process.

Suddenly MK finds her career plans in jeopardy. William makes her question everything she has ever thought and has the uncanny ability to see right through her. And for the first time in her life, MK finds herself not only questioning what she wants for her career but for her personal life as well…

My opinion.
I heard so many great things about Connectivity - I was a bit scared my expectations would be too high. Obviously, I had nothing to worry about. The book is just as brilliant as I had hoped. I can't remember the last time I smiled and laughed so much while reading. 
Aven Ellis' writing is easy, it's funny... just fabulous. I really loved MK as a main character. And William. Well... *sigh*
The odds aren't in their favor. Career ambitions, tight schedules and not that much trust in the whole concept of "love", MK and William have to overcome a lot. Neither of them was planning on it, let alone expecting it, but they did.
Connectivity is a very funny, flirty contemporary romance with two wonderful main characters, the perfect settings - written by a brilliant author. Loved every page. Very excited to read more Aven Ellis novels - can't believe this was her debut  novel! Born to write.


About the author.
Aven Ellis has been writing fiction since she was sixteen. She studied communications at a large Midwestern university, and after graduation, Aven worked as a reporter for a community newspaper, followed by a stint at a public relations agency.

But writing about city council meetings and restaurant franchises was not as much fun as writing for young women trying to figure out their careers and potential boyfriends. So Aven got herself a job in television that allowed her to write at night.  Connectivity is Aven’s debut novel; Waiting For Prince Harry and Chronicles of a Lincoln Park Fashionista (New Adult romantic comedy) will be published this year.

Aven lives in Dallas with her family. When she is not writing, Aven enjoys shopping, cooking, connecting with friends on social media, and watching any show that features Gordon Ramsay.

Thank you so much, Aven, for giving me the opportunity to read and review Connectivity. It's such a wonderful novel and I really, really enjoyed it. You're a very talented writer and I can't wait to read more of your work! You're the best!
