The Bottom Line

The Bottom Line by Aven Ellis 

After landing her dream job as an assistant buyer for a luxury fashion retailer in Minneapolis, Taylor Hartigan’s life becomes a nightmare. Performing mundane tasks and catering to the ridiculous whims of the boss from hell, she sees no opportunity for advancement. Though she’s never quit anything in her life, Taylor walks out and heads home to Chicago, the city that holds her heart. With her confidence shaken and no job on the horizon, she knows she has to find herself again.

Once she arrives, she’s shocked to learn hockey player Hunter Riley has been traded to the Chicago Buffaloes. Taylor met Hunter the previous season when his hard-hitting play broke the glass in front of her. Meeting him after the game, something passed between them—and has stayed with her ever since. Since she’s followed his career, she knows he’s coming off a disastrous season in Houston and must rediscover his game in Chicago—or face losing his hockey dream.

The timing couldn’t be worse for the pair to become involved since they’re both at a crossroads but the chemistry between them can’t be denied. Taylor worries that their budding relationship won’t survive the challenges of rebuilding two broken careers. Can the new versions of themselves fit together? Or tear them apart?

Or will love be the bottom line, after all?**

Thank you to the author for always wanting me to read your words.

So we met Taylor in another book and I couldn't wait to read her story. Taylor thought for her whole life that she wanted to be a fashion retailer, be the on the first line of deciding what stores would sell, and be the trend for the season, too bad all she does if fetch coffee for her horrible boss and spend most of her day tracking down things for said horrible boss. Well, Taylor has had enough, she misses home and the longer she works this job the more she realizes that she's not going to go anywhere in this company. Her boss just doesn't want to nurture anything good from Taylor and so one day she's had enough, she quits and flies home to spend the evening with her girls. 

After her impromptu trip home she has to go back to Minneapolis and pack up her apartment and drive home but while she was in Chicago, she found out that Hunter Riley was traded to the Buffaloes and after they met over a year ago, she had to admit the timing was perfect with them both in the same city. Although what she needs right now is to focus on her life and finding a job, not a romance. It won't hurt to spend some time with Hunter though. The more time they spend together the more she wants to spend with him. Life is not all roses and sunshine, what life is?

They're young and make assumptions, well Hunter does and it almost derails their love story. But as with all Aven stories, love always wins. I loved Hunter and Taylor, I mean I knew I would but I just loved getting to read their love story and the whys and hows on how they got to their very own happily ever after. I don't watch much hockey but when I read any of Aven's books with hockey boys in it I can appreciate it.  I loved that we got a glimpse at the other characters from this series, I always get excited to see favorite characters! Go and get this one, you won't regret it. If you've not read the others in the series, its not required but you'll be asking some questions about others in the book.
