Holly Johansson knows some things in her life are certain after college graduation:
1.) It’s a long road to become a full-time author.
2.) She’ll need to work to pay her bills.
3.) And Dallas Demons superstar Matt Rhinelander will never return her feelings.

Holly knows her unrequited crush on the partying hockey player is ridiculous. There’s no way Matt would be attracted to a woman who prefers nights in watching TV or reading books when he’s known for his frequent bar hops and fast lifestyle. Obviously he would never see her as anything other than his teammate’s little sister.

Yet Holly is drawn to the other side of Matt—the man she knows has always been thoughtful and easy to talk to whenever she’s been alone with him. It is this Matt that fueled the crush Holly has on him. And she knows it will always be just that—a secret crush.

Or will it?

Because when Matt helps Holly through a crisis, her heart begins to believe that there might be feelings on his part, too. After a night of hard partying puts Matt in jeopardy with the Dallas Demons, can Holly be the one to save him? And when Matt admits he sees her as more than Nate Johansson’s sister, will it put both of them on thin ice?

Thank you to Aven not only for a copy of this book but also for allowing me to be a part of her beta team and for letting me run this tour.

Aven has been planning Matt and Holly’s story for such a long time that before I even started reading this book I felt like I already knew them. We have met both characters before in the earlier books in the season but their story doesn’t really start until this book.

Matt is one of the youngest hockey players in the league. He never got a chance to grow up before he hit the big time so he as unwillingly become a role model. On the outside Matt looks like party guy who spends every evening with a different girl but deep down Matt is just scared. He’s scared to let anyone in because he has been hurt in the past by the two people who are supposed to love you more than anything in the world.

Holly is a bookworm who dreams of nothing more than being an author. She knows that this is going to be a long, tough road but she also has the determination to make it. Holly seems like the compete opposite of Matt. She’s an introvert, she hates parties and loves nothing more than to curl up with a good book in her Ravenclaw t-shirt, her yoga pants and her striped socks.

Aven’s writing will have you hooked from the first paragraph and as you would expect if you have read any of her other books some very funny scenes that will give you tears of laughter.

I have been a fan of Aven’s writing since her first book and she gets better with each story. Every time I think that she has just written her best book yet she tops it with another. Keep your eyes peeled for Sugar and Ice which is out at the end of the month.

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.

Christmas Spotlight: Aven Ellis

The Holiday Season  and the Starbucks Red Cups So many things signal the return of the holiday season-Christmas music is suddenly piped into stores. Aisles are filled with things like gingerbread cookies, fruit cakes, and marzipan. Greenery is wrapped around light posts and lights are strung on houses. However, for the coffee lover, nothing signals the return of the holiday season like a Starbucks Red Cup. Yes, I’m a coffee addict. Three cups a day for sure. Normally I drink it with a splash of cream. On weekends I love cappuccino with a touch of maple syrup. But the Red […]
