Review: Connectivity by Aven Ellis

Connectivity by Aven Ellis

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…



3.5 out of 5 stars

I thought this was a lighthearted and fun book with just a touch of drama and I really enjoyed the story line. I liked the characters a lot. I thought MK (Mary-Kate) was spunky and strong, not whiny. I loved the fact that she never put herself down and stands up for herself. William was really sweet and I enjoyed the fact that he wasn’t a typical showy rich guy. Of course he was tall, sexy, and handsome so I now have another British book boyfriend. ;-)

I thought Mary-Kate and William had an entertaining first meeting. I enjoyed their interactions throughout and I thought their inside joke was fun. I liked learning more about William as he opened up and enjoyed his brother’s family. Her family and friends however were a piece of work. 

It was lovely to see their relationship evolve and grow though they didn’t talk about it a lot, it just was. It was based on them truly getting to now one another and it developed slowly. They had some playful moments and I found myself smiling and laughing on more than one occasion. While sex is touched upon I have to say it was refreshing that it wasn’t the main focus.

A sweet love story that has a nice build. I would definitely recommend this book.

ARC received in exchange for an honest review.
