For Seattle blogger Payton James, life is all about trying to achieve perfection. Payton is determined to be her best self in all areas, and she refuses to rest until she achieves it.
However, an imperfect moment in a coffee shop completely changes Payton’s life. When her drink order gets switched by mistake, Payton finds herself face-to-face with a gorgeous British man named Brooks. Payton is instantly attracted to the witty stranger who is quick with his words—and has a beautiful smile.
Brooks is an exotic veterinarian with a huge passion for animals. Heartache in his past has led him to focusing on his career out of fear of getting hurt again. But there’s something about Payton that makes this vet want to know more about the bubbly blogger he has met via fate—and has him reconsidering his stance on love.
But will Brooks ever be free of his fears to truly open his heart? And will Payton’s drive for perfection cost her the one thing she loves most? Or will she learn to embrace imperfections?
And maybe perfect is the one thing Payton doesn’t want after all . . .
Green Tea Latte To Go by Aven Ellis (Life, Love & Lattes, #1)
Have you ever read anything by Aven Ellis? Trust me, you are missing out on romance with heart and humor, fabulous characters and always a twist or two in the plot that feels like walking on hot coals of emotional turmoil.
Payton is a fashion and lifestyle Seattle blogger, trying to prove to both herself and her family of over-achievers that she can make it on her own, blazing her own trail. They have made sure to let her know how frivolous and irresponsible she is being, but she’s happy with her choices and willing to pay her dues to achieve the following and income she wants.
Rule number one, always start out with a Green Tea Latte To Go, but what she receives is someone else’s order and that someone is hot, amazing and British! Meanwhile to make ends meet until her big break in blogging, she takes a position in a chaotic young family’s home. Her first duty is taking the family pig to the vet to have his hooves trimmed. Never one to shy away from a challenge, Payton is determined to get that little porker into that office, no matter how much he squeals! And there, right in front of her stands the most beautiful man in the world, with the sexiest British accent, you guessed it, Dr. Dreamy is the “wrong latte guy.”
Brooks is stunned to see the little spitfire from the morning right there in his veterinarian’s office. The rest, as they say, is history in the making!
Grab a few tissues, divide them in two, tears of laughter on the right (make this the biggest pile) and tears of frustration and sadness on the left. Aven Ellis is back with a cast of charming characters, heartwarming exotic animals, night time emergencies at the worst time and love, sweet love! Not that either Brooks or Payton are about to admit what their hearts feel, because really, poor Payton feels Brooks needs someone perfect like him and Brooks has been hurt so badly, he is gun shy, very gun shy.
Fuzzy, scaly animals, a couple of little pigs, newborn kittens and Payton’s completely dysfunctional family adds to the chaos of two souls who dance around that four letter word, love.
Start to finish, Aven Ellis will have you under her spell. Her ability to be able to turn mere words into a ray of sunshine and hope is magical! Will Brooks and Payton continue to dance around their feelings until pigs fly or will they accept what the fates have decreed and be one of the best couples ever? Love this feel good tale! I was grinning like a Cheshire cat throughout this fun read!
