Recent Comments "Save The Date"
Finally, the Goalie gets his story! Seriously, what would a hockey team be without a goalie? What would a goalie be without someone to love? It’s lonely down there in the net and there is always a second string goalies just one score away from taking your position. Luca is living his dream, but sometime she is too wrapped up in being the best he can be. Collins is the event planner who knows how to make things shine, even if she is dealing with a bridezilla or the dreaded Monster of the Bride. [...]
What can I say that I haven't already said about a book by Aven Ellis? Save The Date is another highly enjoyable and truly pleasurable stories to read, and I am running out of new ways to try and explain just how much I love these books. In Luca Ballerini, the author has created another dream man, and given me yet another book boyfriend. He is wonderful and I was falling for him within the first few minutes of meeting him. He is a dedicated goalie that wants nothing more than to help Collins rea [...]

review to come
Love everything Aven does. Luca is a dream. I've gotta go find me a hockey player.
*Book provided by the author in exchange for an honest review*Welcome back to Chicago, where the Chicago Buffaloes have their home. If you have read Livy's and Aubrey's stories you already know Collins. Collins Brady broke up with her long term boyfriend, because she didn't see a future with him. Especially her mum and of course Gabe himself were not happy with this. Collins works as an event planner and has a great passion for horses. At the beginning of the story, she is at an event she organi [...]
Collins is an event planner. Her mother taught her to avoid unpleasantness at all times and to always have a smile on her face. Collins has been in a steady relationship with Gabe, but when she thinks about the next step, she knows that he is not the one for her. Collins has her own horse, Mayor, and her dream is to work with horses every single day. Will Collins be able to find a way to make her dreams come true? Luca knew from an early age that playing hockey is what he was born to do. He put [...]
So, I have the biggest smile on my face right now. I really enjoyed Save the Date by Aven Ellis!When we were first introduced to Collins Brady, I was really curious about her character. She seemed so kind and relatable, therefore I had to know why she put pressure on herself to appear a certain way at times. Then there was the whole situation with her ex-boyfriend. What exactly happened there?I got all my answers and then some. I have to say- Collins (along with Aubrey and Lexi) is one of my fav [...]
Having read the other books in this series, I couldn't wait to read Luca andf Collins story. What I love about this author is she writes stories that could take place in my town, my life. These are real people with real problems. There is no horrific bombshells just waiting to go off that are magically weaved into nothing in the last chapter.Collins is unsatisfied with her life but doing what she thinks her family wants her to. She's good at it so why not just keep going on existing in a life th [...]
I dunno I love Aven Ellis but this one felt rushed. It was very insta love. They barely even meet before they're SUPER SERIOUS and there was NO build up to their friendship - just instant chemistry and instant relationship. She's dropped hints in other books like she always does - looking at YOU Taylor and Beck's brother - but it was just too fast. And I'm sorry, but the 21 year old goalie who sees a hot girl, instantly realizes she's "The One," dates her and proposes in 6 months? Honey I'm a j [...]
Amazing story!I loved this story! I have not read the first two books in this series yet, but I will be. I loved how Collins and Luca got together and overcame their issues and can't wait to see how the other couples find their happiness. And there's Nana, who is great for comedic relief. This is a one sitting read, so before you sit down to read this, be sure to have a snack and a drink close, although I wouldn't take a page from the book and drink shots of whiskey or whiskey sours. The hero is [...]
Truth be told, I don't Aven could ever not write a 5 star book. Seriously, there's something inside her that sets up the perfect stories, from the leads, to the outfits, to the black moments. Save the Date has everything you want in a romcom and more. Luca is a HOT goalie who you'll be daydreaming about long after you finish. And Collins is the bestie you need to finish off your squad. You'll need to clear your weekend cause you won't be able to put Save the Date down. If you love stories that a [...]
Luca Ballerini is such a swoon worthy man. He comes across older than he actually is but he is definitely a true gentleman.Collins (love her name) isn't quite living the life she would like to, and she doesn't really know how she can go about changing that. What she does know is that she is falling in love with the starting goaltender for the Chicago Buffaloes.I absolutely adored reading this book be Aven Ellis. I must admit I fell a little in love with Luca. He has to be one of the best written [...]
I first found Aven Ellis' books when I got a copy of The Aubrey Rules. I instantly fell in love! With the main characters, with the writing and with the secondary characters! I was so happy to learn that Collins was getting her own book! Luca and Collins were made for each other and have a swoon-worthy romance!! I loved the little jokes about how she was an older woman. If you are looking for a book that makes you laugh(especially Nana), makes you feel like you are right there with the character [...]
I love all the books that come from Aven Ellis. This book was no exception. Luca and Collins are just perfect together. Luca the hockey player (yes please) and Collins the planner have the best meet cute. Their interactions with each other had me swooning from the beginning. Of course, no relationship is absolutely perfect. There were a few insecurities on both sides to work through but both were all the better for having open communication. I loved this couple and hope to see them again.
Once again, Aven hits it out of the park with a swoon-worthy hockey romance. Luca is a dream. As a Boilermaker myself, I appreciate that Collins is a Purdue graduate. I love the continuation of the other Chicago On Ice storylines. I am also excited about the new San Francisco series coming soon which this book sets up.
What can you say about an author who puts so much into her characters and stories? This author does it with every book! Every book I get the butterflies in my stomach with the first kiss! Every book I swoon as I see the characters fall in love! Every book you get drawn into the secondary characters so much so that you want them to get their own story. These books are the epitome of romance! Collins and Luca are both a little hesitant for love. Both for their own reasons. But Luca has been a litt [...]
She shoots, she scores!!! Aven Ellis got everything about Save The Date right! I loved Luca and Collins. They were the perfect H/H in this story. Luca encourages Collins to reach for her dreams and not settle. Collins helps Luca realize there is more to life than hockey. I keep thinking each book is the best oned no really, this one is the best in the series yet!
A must read A modern Cinderella story that you will just love! Once I started reading this book I could not put down. Aven Ellis writes the best books wot h characters you connect with. This book is available on kindle unlimited which I got it from. Definitely a must read
Swoon-worthy hockey romance!Aven Ellis delivers again with another swoon-worthy hockey romance! With characters that are filled with a range of human emotions and feelings, you'll wish they could be your real life fans.
Save the Date (Chicago on Ice 3) - PG13Violence: noneLanguage: Sex: descriptive kissingI didn't like the h as much as I usually like AE's heroines. There wasn't conflict to drive the couple together or apart, either.
Omg I loved this book. Can't wait for the next one to come out
Collins does love her job as an event planner but she doesn't want to be a party planner her whole life. She wants to work with horses. Right now though her life is working.
