Trivial Pursuits by Aven Ellis
Series: Chicago On Ice #2
Release Date ~ 20th April 2016

Landon Holder is exactly the kind of man Livy Adams should stay far away from.

The flashy, flirty star defenseman for the Chicago Buffaloes is known for hooking up with women all over Chicago. Livy finds herself attracted to Landy, but his sexy good looks and charm are irrelevant. She had her heart shattered by a cheating athlete in college, and Livy vows she will never let her judgment lapse like that ever again.

Yet Livy knows she can’t spend the rest of her life focusing on building her jewelry line during the day and her evenings playing TriviaPlayOrPass! on her phone, either. Even though she does have fabulous conversations with a player named Scott, it’s time to get back in the game—in real life. While Livy tries to figure out her career path in jewelry design, she knows it’s time to take a chance on romance again, too.

But in a strange twist of fate, Livy finds herself getting to know Landy on a much deeper level. Sometimes people aren’t always as they appear to be. Just like a diamond, you have to look closely to see true clarity.

As Livy unwraps the layers around Landy to see the man behind the image, will she have a change of heart? Can she leave her past behind for a future with Landy? Or is it all a game of trivial pursuits?

*** I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review ***

When it’s time to settle down with Aven Ellis’s latest book it always puts a smile on my face, as I know I’m going to be in reading heaven for the next few hours, and this is what happened while reading Trivial Pursuits Livy Adams and Landon Holden story. It is book two in her Chicago On Ice series.

First off I have to say I always love what Aven does at the start of each chapter. In Breakout she gave us dating questions, in The Definition of Icing, it was chocolate and hockey facts and in The Aubrey Rules, it was the Rules that Aubrey lived by. So for Trivial Pursuits, it was, of course, trivia question. So in homage to Aven, and Livy, I have added some of my own trivia questions during this review! (there is a theme )

What leafy green has more Absorbable Calcium than a small carton of milk?

As much as Livy was attracted Landon, she was always wary of him due to her past and his reputation, as a ladies man. However, there is so much more to Landon than meets the eye and with the help of an online trivia game, this is something that Livy is about to discover.

What leafy green arrived in the U.S. in the 17th century?

I had always loved Livy for the simple reason she is a girl after my own heart, not only does she love KALE!! And oh wow do I love kale (Had it for my lunch and dinner today) she is also a hopeless romantic, loves Kale, lover of romance novels, loves Kale, believes in a Happy Ever After and loves Kale.

What leafy green has more Vitamin C Than An Orange?

Landon Holder was a hot sexy hockey player so what was not to like, and it was great getting to see a side of him that the public doesn’t always get to see. Livy and Landon are such a cute couple together, I adored the connection they shared and the relationship that develops between them. Oh, and I loved Landon nickname for Livy just perfect for her and maybe me too!! 😉

What leafy green is the Queen of Vitamin A?

Aven never disappoints with her secondary characters. There is the one who is scene-stealers in a good way such as Nana she was just the best and made me laugh so many times with the things that she said. And then, of course, there is the one I wanted to bitch slap such as Kayla. I’m sure once you meet her you will want to do the same.

What leafy green belongs to the same family as cabbage, Brussels sprouts, and collards?

Yet again Aven delivers in her unique way an entertaining, sweet romantic story with a perfect epilogue for all you hopeless romantic, hockey and Kale lovers out there. unspecified


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.
