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’ve been waiting so long to share my review of this book with you. I was lucky enough to be a beta reader for this book so I saw this book blossom from a tiny idea into the amazing book it is.
For those of you that have already read The Aubrey Rules you would have met Livy and Landon before. Landy Holden is the one man that Livy should stay away from. Livy’s been hurt before. Her ex was an athlete and a cheater and she won’t put herself through that again.
Landy Holden has always been a player. He’s the king of selfies and is always at the heart of the action. But there’s another side to Landy that not everyone has seen. There’s a selfless side that no one sees.
This book will pull you in within minutes. Livy and Landon are such realistic and endearing characters that you can’t help but love them. Aven’s writing draws you in and wraps you up in her world and I can’t wait for another one of her books.
