Trivial Pursuits by Aven Ellis
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Aven Ellis scored her second win with book two in the Chicago on Ice Series, Trivial Pursuits. Livy Adams has gone down the path of dating a cheating athlete before. The last thing she should do is become involved with Chicago Buffaloes defenseman and ladies’ man, Landon Holder. She soon discovers that there is more to Landon then meets the eye. This contemporary sports romance is suitable for new adult and adult audiences.
Aven Ellis does a fabulous job with her character development. I really like Livy. She is sweet and enterprising. She is obsessed with playing TriviaPlayOrPass. She is a talented jewelry designer who is pursuing her dream of launching her own jewelry line. She was hurt in college by her cheating boyfriend, and the experience made her untrusting in relationships. Landon is great. He had a tough childhood. He is great with his fans. He is good with kids. He is funny, smart, and a talented athlete. I love his selfie addiction. He is really creative with their activities. He has a lot of layers that people are unaware of. I love Nana. She’s the coolest grandma ever. She had me laughing. I love that Aubrey and Beckett from book one are in this story a lot.
I enjoyed the plot and writing style. There is fate involved. The story is believable and convincing. I like how the chapters starts with trivia questions that are somehow related to the chapter. I enjoyed Livy’s and Landon’s virtual dates when Landon is on the road. It was hilarious when Livy’s family barged in on their video chat date. I love Landon’s cat, Gigi. The debacle with the sushi was hilarious. I love the DEFCON levels. Their nicknames for each other are entertaining. The hockey scenes were well written. The ending was perfect. Honesty, I cannot think of anything I didn’t like. Well, I take that back, I didn’t like Kayla, but she helped made the story interesting. This is a great book for anyone who enjoys contemporary sports romances. If you have not read book one, The Aubrey Rules, I recommend reading it first. Both Livy and Landon make appearances in that story. I really love this series. It has a unique style that makes it captivating. I cannot wait for the next book.
