Connectivity - by Aven Ellis

Original Cover
My own copy

The blurb:

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:

*Book provided by author in exchange for an honest review and I also won the book again.*

First I have to say, that I think the cover is really beautiful. The colour is magical and I just love everything about it.

Mary-Kate is a career driven 24 year old with a lot of ambition, drive and enthusiasm. She is a talented writer and has a blog. Her career is the most important thing for her, she doesn’t think about man and having a relationship. Love that she is named after an Olsen twin and it’s great to read about Full House, I loved that series when I was younger.

William is the sexy media boss who turns up at her office in Chicago. He’s British and he’s single and not interested in dating. I have to say, I still have a huge crush on him. Great man and such a gentleman and so caring as well – perfect ♥.

I really liked the way the two of them met; I was funny and interesting at the same time. Aven’s writing is vivid, catchy, brilliant and sparkling. I was so hooked to this book; I read the whole time and couldn’t put it down.

The way William and Mary-Kate’s relationship developed was great and something different from other stories. The scenes between them and their interactions were amazing and wonderful. Every single scene has it’s own spark and glimmer. Their relationship started innocently, but builds up more and more, they are such a cute and adorable couple and their love was always there, without neither of them saying something about it. They way they treated each other and showed each other their feelings made this story magical. You can see that one person, if it is the ONE, can really change everything in life. I can’t tell you enough, how I loved the connection between William and Mary-Kate.

The differences between the UK and the US were always included in a fun and enjoyable way throughout the story.
The ending and the epilogue were so adorable and brilliantly written, like the rest of the book.
The bonus scenes on Aven's blog are great as well :).

This book is an incredible and marvellous debut novel and I can’t wait to read books by Aven Ellis. ♥ ♥  I never felt so connected to a story and the characters before, especially to Mare-Kate, she reminded me of myself in some ways and I just can't get William Cumberland out of my head ♥.


My possible cast: 

Mary-Kate: Kate Mara

William: Henry Cavill ♥ ♥
