Perfect Drink: Green tea latte with coconut milk and raw honey.
Perfect Fashion Icon: The Duchess of Cambridge. Always on point with her fashion, dressing appropriately for every occasion and not afraid to recycle things from her wardrobe, I truly admire her class and style.
Perfect Place: Seattle.
Perfect Activity for Relaxation: Yoga. I’m terrible at it, but I’m determined to perfect downward dog. Someday.
For Seattle blogger Payton James, life is all about trying to achieve perfection. Payton is determined to be her best self in all areas, and she refuses to rest until she achieves it.
However, an imperfect moment in a coffee shop completely changes Payton’s life. When her drink order gets switched by mistake, Payton finds herself face-to-face with a gorgeous British man named Brooks. Payton is instantly attracted to the witty stranger who is quick with his words—and has a beautiful smile.
Brooks is an exotic veterinarian with a huge passion for animals. Heartache in his past has led him to focusing on his career out of fear of getting hurt again. But there’s something about Payton that makes this vet want to know more about the bubbly blogger he has met via fate—and has him reconsidering his stance on love.
But will Brooks ever be free of his fears to truly open his heart? And will Payton’s drive for perfection cost her the one thing she loves most? Or will she learn to embrace imperfections?
And maybe perfect is the one thing Payton doesn’t want after all . . .
Running the risk of saying this every time I finished another one of Aven Ellis' wonderful books, Green Tea Latte To Go might just be featuring my favourite couple of hers yet. Payton and Brooks probably have one of the most easy relationships I've read. Their conversation, banter,... it all flows naturally and feels - dare I say - perfect ;-)
The one thing I can never get enough of, reading Aven Ellis, is the inner monologues of her main characters. They sound incredibly natural, spontaneous, believable and even familiar, at times. They make you 'click' with the character - even when you might not expect to have a lot in common with them - and in this case, I fell for both Payton and Brooks from the start.
I very much enjoyed the British #hotvet as a male lead and a special mention has to go to Mr. Not Bacon and Agnus, for being my favourite book pets yet. Or at the very least the most unexpected and original ones!
I very much enjoyed this story. Both Payton and Brooks and the pets never failed to put a smile on my face. Loved it!
ABOUT AVEN ELLIS. Aven Ellis has been writing fiction since she was sixteen. She studied communications at a large Midwestern university, and after graduation, Aven worked as a reporter for a community newspaper, followed by a stint at a public relations agency. But writing about city council meetings and restaurant franchises was not as much fun as writing for young women trying to figure out their careers and potential boyfriends. So Aven got herself a job in television that allowed her to write at night. Connectivity is Aven’s debut novel; Waiting For Prince Harry and Chronicles of a Lincoln Park Fashionista (New Adult romantic comedy) will be published next year. Aven lives in Dallas with her family. When she is not writing, Aven enjoys shopping, cooking, connecting with friends on social media, and watching any show that features Gordon Ramsay.
