“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.”
Firstly I’d like to thank the author for sending me this eBook to read and give an honest review. I recently had the pleasure of interviewing Aven about Connectivity and her writing, you can read the interview here.
Right from the start I found this an easy book to read, Mary-Kate’s attraction to her new boss William was obvious to me and it certainly made for some interesting reading and laugh out loud moments. Romance wasn’t one of her priorities in life though and I found this a refreshing change in a character.
Life didn’t always run smoothly for Mary-Kate, she was rather clumsy and often found herself frustrated by her situation. Thrown into that mix was an irritating sister who seemed to think she could boss Mary-Kate about as she planned her wedding, I was willing Mary-Kate to stand up to her.
The author created an intense sexual tension between William and Mary-Kate, I could almost feel the butterflies that she experienced whenever they were together and this kept me flicking through the pages – I simply couldn’t stop reading! Some of my favourite moments included: a binding disaster, a tea service catastrophe, a lovely Valentines Day and a romantic ride on the London Eye.
The issue of choosing between a career or love was an important feature of the book and towards the end Mary-Kate had some big decisions to make. I can honestly say that I had no idea which direction she would take.
This was a wonderfully romantic read that I couldn’t put down, I look forward to more from this author!
