The Aubrey Rules by Aven Ellis - Recent Recommended Read #4

Can you believe the last book review I published was in January? I haven't read many since then, partly because of time and partly because I don't like to rush books. I did set a book reading goal at the beginning of the year but I soon came to realise this was silly. When I finish a book I like to wait a little while before moving onto the next, I like savouring the story and remembering the characters. This review is about The Aubrey Rules by Aven Ellis, number 1 in the Chicago on Ice series.

The Aubrey Rules by Aven Ellis book review chick-lit

Do you like:

  • Social media?
  • America?
  • Hot sports players?

I reckon you'll devour this book as fast as I did then.

Aubrey is a newly graduated social media professional with a rule for everything in her life, from what she eats, her work and even to dating. When she unknowingly bumps into one of the hottest ice hockey players around, she starts to question these strict rules she's made herself as she finds her work and personal life increasingly interlinked.

I'm a sucker for a romantic novel and when social media was thrown into the mix I couldn't resist. It was a brilliant idea to tie that into the book. It's something that most of us and certainly almost all of the books target audience use on a daily *ahem* hourly basis and is a very hot topic at the moment.

I used to watch Les Tigres Blanc play every Wednesday when I was working as a chalet host in France, but that is the extent of my knowledge of the sport. The leading male in this romance is the Chicago Buffalo's strong and determined captain, Beckett Riley. One of the features that pulled me into the story was that off the ice, he was far from confident and sure of himself. This struck a chord with me because it's often assumed that to succeed in life you have to assume a big, bold and confident character but this is simply not true.

The story gets into its stride very quickly meaning I simply could not put it down and devoured it until I reached it's satisfying conclusion. I found out today the author is currently writing the second book in the Chicago on Ice series featuring characters from this book, this made me very happy!

I thoroughly recommend The Aubrey Rules and will be downloading the author's other work very soon.

Have you read The Aubrey Rules? What other books in this genre should I read?
