Book Review: Connectivity

Connectivity by 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…

Whairigail's thoughts: **5 Stars**

My timing for the first big jump in my television career is a freaking fabulous fail of epic proportions

This is the opening line to this wonderfully addictive and easy reading novel by the wonderful Aven Ellis.

I had this book sitting on my kindle for a while, but due to things like - life (!) - getting in the way, I didn't get to it for some time. Then I had a book hangover - Damn you Jasinda Wilder!! - and couldn't find something that I was loving within the first few chapters. Then the amazing Derna Fearon reminded me of this little gem of a novel. I am SO GLAD I picked it up & started to read it!!

Mary-Kate, MK, works as an assistant in a TV station and a certain handsome, wealthy, smooth Brit named William Cumberland proceeds to buy this TV station in the first chapter.

MK ends up being his assistant for a short period of time as he relocates to the US to ensure the transition goes as smoothly as possible.

There is no self doubt on the part of MK and no, how do I put this, Asshole-iness (?) from William!! These characters developed beautifully and at a pace which suited the story. They were sweet, clever, funny and made for a very enjoyable read.

I'll put it out there because someone will pick up on it - There are similarities to 50 Shades & The Crossfire series. Get over it!! It is in no way trying to copy any other book, it just so happens that as soon as anyone writes a romance involving the Owner of an Empire & someone of assistant level, it will constantly be compared to it.

I have absolutely no complaints with this novel - it hooked me, made me laugh, tugged at my heartstrings and was very easy to read.

A well deserved 5 Stars!

Emma's thoughts: I received an ARC of this book in exchange for an honest review.

Let me just start by saying that I loved this book. Aven has the ability in her writing to make it what I call easy reading, the words flow and before you know it you've read 50% and then finished it. I would of read it a lot quicker but due to being busy it wasn't possible but I definitely wanted to be reading it at every free possibility.

So onto the review which I will keep as spoiler free as possible. Connectivity is about Mary Kate Grant (MK) who is very career minded and has worked very hard to get where she is but then she finds herself working as a personal assistant for William Cumberland, a British media mogul who has made his fortune with Connectivity, a social media site. William Cumberland is your hot, smooth, sophisticated business man who rarely has time for the ladies but both him and MK find themselves drawn to one another and so the story begins....... I'm not going to tell you anymore, what I will say is read it!

Big congrats to Aven on Connectivity and thank you for letting me read/review it for you. Can't wait for your next book Waiting for Prince Harry which is due out in the Spring.
