The Aubrey Rules by Aven Ellis
Some of the Aubrey Rules to Live By:
*If I’m going to indulge in French fries, I must add extra time to the treadmill the next day.
*Always keep your work and private life separate.
*Being open to new experiences will never involve eating kale.
*Never, ever date a professional athlete.
For Chicago social media professional Aubrey Paige, the rules are everything. So much so that Aubrey has painstakingly written her rules for living into a polka-dot Kate Spade notebook that she carries with her at all times. It’s her personal guidebook to living her life. These rules are the Holy Grail—ones never to be broken. They guide her actions for everything, from dealing with workplace drama to finding a great guy to date. After all, these are her own rules, built from her life experiences and observations. So they have to be perfect, right?
Or are they?
I kindly received The Aubrey Rules in exchange of an honest review by the author.
Why did I wait so long to finally start this? Oh yeah, because I’m an idiot. I’m so glad I finally picked up The Aubrey Rules. Aven Ellis is my ‘go to’ author when I’m in need of a romance and feel good read! She never fails to make me happy. The Aubrey Rules was no exception.
Audrey Paige, main character of this book, likes jotting down rules for her career and love life and use them as a guide to keep her organized. These are her own rules, built from her life experiences and observations. It’s her personal guidebook to living her life. These rules are never to be broken until the day she meets a cute Canadian. The way they meet is quite a hilarious scene. Aubrey overslept; she didn’t have time to herself ready properly and is on her way to a very important job interview with one of the chicest social media firms in Chicago. While she is in an elevator and about to get out, her boot heel catches in the crack and she flies forward, flat on her face. This is where she meets a very handsome stranger, who later turns out to be Beckett Riley, captain of the Chicago Buffaloes, professional ice hockey team. Dark brown hair, chocolate colored eyes, 6’3, massive chest and super-hot! Yet Aubrey finds herself drawn to Beckett in ways she’s never known. And when she unexpectedly finds herself working with Beckett, she wonders if rules are meant to be broken after all . . .
Aubrey is another heroin I could easily identify with because we have a few things in common. She felt like someone who was a friend by the end of the book and is one of the few characters I’ve felt would be interesting to meet. To tell you the truth, from a certain point on, I could see what was coming. It was kinda hard not to, but nevertheless, I enjoyed the story immensely. Even though I knew what was coming, it was a fun read, and very entertaining. In true Aven Ellis style you are in for a romantic and sexy read. I love Aven’s book boyfriends and it’s safe to say Beckett is another one to add to the ever growing list.
