Review: Chronicles Of A Lincoln Park Fashionista by Aven Ellis


Recent college graduate Avery Andrews is ready to begin a new life in the big city. She’s landed an apartment in Chicago’s famed Lincoln Park neighborhood–and has her eye on the cute commodities trader just a floor above.

If Premier Airlines knew about her fear of flying, they never would have hired her to be their marketing assistant—but it’s not like Avery wants a lifelong career. Right now she simply wants a job to pay her bills…and fund a few little shopping excursions, too.

Her new lifestyle comes with a price tag, as Avery is not only faced with paying a ridiculous rent but finds she’s perceived as one of the vacant, husband-hunting fashionistas who live in the area. Avery resents this stereotype—so she doesn’t want a lifelong career, and she loves fashions she can’t afford, but that doesn’t mean she is empty-headed and spoiled, does it? 

When an opportunity to participate in a documentary at work arises, Avery finds a two-fold solution to her problems. She’ll earn extra money for it, and the documentary will show her as a serious career woman, enabling her to shed that husband-hunting fashionista label for good.

When the camera is on, Avery attempts to be a motivated professional woman. But when she is challenged by Deacon Ryan, the videographer assigned to cover her story, Avery finds herself wanting things she was never supposed to want—like a lasting career—and Deacon. And Avery might just gain more from the experience than a perfect career image and extra cash to put in her Tory Burch wallet…

My 5* Review-

Disclaimer: I received an ARC of this book direct from the author in exchange for nothing more than an honest review. All thoughts and opinions expressed in this review are entirely my own.

Meet Avery. Avery has just begun working for an airline in their marketing department. She's also determined to prove that she is not obsessed with finding a rich husband to look after her and that she's not a fashionista.
Meet Deke. Deke works for the filming crew who are making a documentary about the airline. When Deke meets Avery his first impression is... That she's a fashionista looking for a loaded hubby!

As we read Deke and Avery's story we are shown that first impressions aren't always right. As Deke and Avery begin to get to know each other better, they realise that maybe their first impressions were wrong. They also learn that sometimes you just have to not do what your supposed to do.

Aven has written another feel good book. This book is packed with emotions, laughs and romance. The banter between Avery and Deke is funny, and made me giggle. Aven's writing style flows fantastically, it grabs your attention and holds it. I was drawn into Avery and Deke's world and I didn't want to leave.

Avery started off a little annoying but her character develops well, or should I say her true character becomes clearer as the book progresses. Deke... Hmmm... I think he could probably persuade me to get in front of a camera! ;) I really liked how he watched and studied Avery but kept his thoughts concealed; it gave him an air of mysteriousness.

Overall this is another great book by Aven, that I have thoroughly enjoyed reading. If you love feel good romance books then grab yourself a copy.

About The Author-

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.
