*I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.*
I have been waiting to read this book for weeks, it had been sitting on my Kindle just teasing me, so when that day came that I could finally read it I was excited.
Whilst at her brother’s wedding, Kylie Reed sneak off to the bar to get away from her pushy family she quite literally falls into the lap of one Harrison Flynn the sexy famous Dallas Demons hockey player and prince Harry lookalike who is about to for the better turn her world upside down.
I’m not going to say more about the storyline, it as the synopsis gives you just what you need to know. There are few twist and turns, some heartwarming moments, the angst and drama is there but is not frustrating, but what is in abundance is the romance, the swooning and feel good factor. In true Aven Ellis style, it was such easy ready about two people falling in love who have a few bumps along the way. Told from Kylie’s POV you get an insight into her feelings as she has to deal with her family, the media, fans, being in the public eye, and her own insecurities, as it's not every day that you meet a hot celebrity let along start dating one.
“The only game I’m interested in playing is hockey. I would never play games with you.”
Kylie was a girl after my own heart, funny, sensitive, creative and intelligent. Harrison was sweet, smart, kindhearted, passionate and a gentleman, with some alpha qualities also so. Both have a few issues, due to their past they truly don’t believe in themselves.
“Normally fear takes over every decision I make- fear of not being to enough, fear of the unknown, fear of failure- and that has always guided my actions. Always. No exception. Until now”
"Sometimes…..you don't know what you need until you find it"
They may have just found in each other the one person who see what others don’t see, and makes them start to believe in themselves, and see that they can do more if they really to want.
“Kylie you’re the only person who has ever thought that about me. That I’m smart enough to do more than play hockey”.
“Don’t you see? Harrison. You are changing the person I am. You’re the one who is making me see things in a different light”
Loved both Kylie and Harrison there is no messing around the one thing they did know from the start was that they wanted each other. I just loved them as a couple absolute sweethearts, and the loved the relationship that developed. The dates, the texts, their banter and that sole mate feeling.
“The way he kisses me tell me very thing I need to know. He’s falling for me just as fast as I’m falling for him”
“You aren’t just enough for me. You’re everything for me. And there’s nothing that will change that. “
I loved the pop quiz questions at the start of each chapter. And well answer c to the question at the start of chapter 15 was my favorite, and was just perfect. Also, Kylie dancing with Jason at the start of the book just made me laugh, as I couldn’t help but think of two famous Aussie ex soap stars. LOL
Overall Waiting For Prince Harry was funny easy entertaining read that I didn’t want to put down. I loved the story, the characters, and the epilogue it left me with a big smile on my face. Love Aven writing style, and the way she makes reading one of her books such an easy, enjoyable experience.
If you are a true romantic at heart like me, and every so often you need a book with some good old fashion romance with an HEA. Then I suggest you not only 1-click Waiting For Prince Harry, but also Aven debut book Connectivity as this is what without a doubt she delivers.
Can't fault it… I loved it…Another firm favourite of mine… Bring on book the next book.

I’ve wanted to read a book by Aven Ellis for a while. I jumped at the chance to read Waiting For Prince Harry and I must say it was everything enjoyable I expected it to be.
The story starts with a lifestyle quiz question and I thought it set the tone for this lighthearted, fun tale. Kylie is prone to live her life by these quizzes and truly believes they can tell her more about the kind of person she is than she can tell herself. When she runs into her own red-haired hockey prince, Kylie is taken on an adventure of self-discovery and true love.
Harrison Flynn is used to the puck bunnies and groupies throwing themselves at him so when Kylie has no idea who he is he basks in the freedom to just be himself and he allows Kylie to get to know the real him. Although obstacles test their relationship, their love for each other gives them the strength to grow and face their fears.
I really enjoyed WFPH, Kylie was a quirky relatable girl who really was waiting for her Prince to sweep her off her feet, and she got that in Harrison and more. As book boyfriends go, Harrison was sweet and said all the right things, not only was he hot, he was also intelligent and thoughtful. I was rooting for Kylie and Harrison from early on, so much so, I was dreading the climax, I knew something would finally test their relationship but luckily it wasn’t long before all was right again.
This will not be my last read by Aven Ellis, her writing was witty and real. If you are looking for some fun, good romance then I suggest you check this one out.
Aven Ellis has been writing fiction since she was sixteen. She studied communications at a large Midwestern university, and after graduation, Aven worked as a reporter for a community newspaper, followed by a stint at a public relations agency.
But writing about city council meetings and restaurant franchises was not as much fun as writing for young women trying to figure out their careers and potential boyfriends. So Aven got herself a job in television that allowed her to write at night. Connectivity is Aven’s debut novel; Waiting For Prince Harry and Chronicles of a Lincoln Park Fashionista (New Adult romantic comedy) will be published next year.
Aven lives in Dallas with her family. When she is not writing, Aven enjoys shopping, cooking, connecting with friends on social media, and watching any show that features Gordon Ramsay.
