I’ve got a new spot on the interweb; polished & bubbly is the all new keep calm & blog on-same Kayla, same craziness. polishedandbubby.blogspot.com hope you come visit me over there!
Princess, Southern belle, and spoiled-rotten social climber Searcy Roberts swore on a stack of Bibles she’d never return home to Fairhope, Alabama. After marrying her high school sweetheart and moving to Atlanta, Searcy embraces big-city life—Carrie Bradshaw style.
But now, Searcy has a teeny, tiny problem. Her husband’s had a mid-life crisis. He’s quit his job, cancelled her credit cards, and left her for another man.
Searcy returns to Fairhope, ready to lick her wounds. But when her mother falls ill, she’s thrust into managing the family business—only to discover the beloved bakery is in danger of closing its doors forever.
Enlisting the help of the adorable bike store owner next door, an array of well-heeled customers, and her soon-to-be ex-husband, Searcy hatches the plan of the century to save Pie Girls.
I received this book in exchange for an honest review. I loved this book. From the fashionable life Searcy lived, to the not so fashionable life Searcy lived, it was a great read. You felt like you were living each moment with Searcy. She is an extremely likeable lead and you’ll be rooting for her from the beginning! You’ll be on a roller coaster ride of emotions-sad, angry, happy…it’ll hit em all! This 4.5 star read is everything good about chick lit wrapped into one delicious story, xo!

#teamelsa #duh Xo!
Overachiever Mary-Kate Grant (who is indeed named after an Olsen Twin) has followed every rule to the letter to pursue her dream of working in TV programming. Ripping a page from the “hard work pays off” playbook, she takes an assistant level job at a Chicago sports network to break into the industry.
MK has no time or desire for a relationship right now—she is totally focused on her career and being independent, unlike the other women in her family.
But MK’s plans are run through the shredder when she finds herself working for William Cumberland, a British media mogul who made his fortune with Connectivity, a social media site. William blows into Chicago just like the winds off Lake Michigan and purchases the group of networks MK works for—and makes her his personal assistant in the process.
Suddenly MK finds her career plans in jeopardy. William makes her question everything she has ever thought and has the uncanny ability to see right through her. And for the first time in her life, MK finds herself not only questioning what she wants for her career but for her personal life as well.
I received this book in exchange for an honest review. First, it has to be said, I LOVE AVEN! She is an ah-ma-zing woman and my internet bestie. Okay, now that I have that out of the way…Connectivity is an avid chick lit reader’s dream! It has laughs, romance, and drama. You will want to be MK’s friend and you’ll want William to be your boyfriend. It reads like a movie and you won’t be able to put it down. Aven has a gift for making the characters come to life and all of the Full House references will have you laughing out loud! I recommend this 5 star book to anyone who loves extremely well written chick lit, that’s witty and fun and will have you completely hooked after the first chapter, xo! Want to win your very own ebook of Connectivity?! See the rules below!
Ps. check out bonus scenes of MK & William and additional blog posts by MK, visit Aven’s blog: http://avenellis.com/blog/
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.
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.
