Chicago event planner Collins Brady knows how to make the magic happen for her clients. From elaborate weddings to cute baby showers, Collins knows what to do to make an experience breathtakingly perfect. In her mind, she adds the sparkle that makes everything shine.

If only she had that same sparkle in her personal life.

While she’s good at her job, her true career dreams lie elsewhere. If she could do anything, it would be to become an equestrian riding instructor. That dream, however, is shelved due to practicality. And that’s not the only thing Collins has shelved. After ending a relationship with her college sweetheart, Collins has taken her heart out of the game, too. She wonders if that magical kind of love can exist. But maybe it’s only a fantasy.

Or is it? All of that changes the night she meets Luca Ballerini, the rookie goalie for the Chicago Buffaloes. Passionate and fiercely determined, Luca has only made time for hockey in his life—until he meets Collins. Her spark hasn’t escaped him, and now Luca wants something other than his hockey career.

But following their dreams and hearts isn’t always easy. Can Collins and Luca find a way to live their dreams with each other?

Will love get past them? Or will this goalie make a perfect save of Collins’ heart?

Thank you to Aven not only for a copy of this book but for letting me organise this tour. As I am sure you are aware I am a huge fan of Aven’s work and have been from the very beginning.

This is the third book in the Chicago on Ice Series but this can be read as a standalone. If you have read the other books in the Chicago on Ice series then you would have already met Collins and Luca in Trivial Pursuits.

Collins is an event planner and while she is extremely good at what she does it is not her passion. Her passion is horses but how can she make a career from that? No horses are her hobby and she just has to live with that. I loved Collins. She is so real and easy to imagine as a close friend. Collins recently ended her long term relationship with Gabe. While her and Gabe were great together she knew that she didn’t love him. Collins is looking for a that spark. That all consuming feeling that comes with love and then along comes Luca.

Luca first sees Collins on Livy’s website. He is instantly attracted to her and wants to know more about her. Luca was recently promoted to first goalie for the Chicago Buffaloes. Luca is extremely dedicated. He spends a lot of time training and preparing for every game. A LOT of time. He has never had a serious girlfriend before. No one has ever made him want to make time for them. No one has been equal to hockey in his eyes. That is until Collins comes along.

Aven always crafts these wonderful characters that you can’t help but root for and she has not let us down with Collins and Luca. With Collins’ sweet nature and Luca’s big heart they are the epitome of sweet romance characters. This is the perfect easy read after a long day at work.

About Aven Ellis

I live in the Dallas area with my family. I enjoy clipping out recipes I will never get around to trying, working out, and chatting with friends on social media. I’m a hockey nut (Go Stars!) and watch as much as humanly possible. I also love shopping and fashion and admit to being obsessed with whatever the Duchess of Cambridge is wearing. In addition to be obsessed with the Duchess, I’m equally obsessed with any show or cookbook featuring Gordon Ramsay.

Hold the Lift is a fun romantic comedy novella and the first part in the Rinkside in the Rockies series by Aven Ellis!

Or can he? **This novella is approximately 15,000 words** Thank you to Aven for letting me Beta Read […]
