Waiting for Prince Harry by Aven Ellis

Publisher Soul Mate

What They Say:

Twenty-four-year-old Kylie Reed has always been a rule follower. Organized and cautious to a fault, her dreams for life are often filed away for future use—when she has a house, when she meets her future husband, when she has been at her visual display job at a chic Dallas boutique longer...Kylie always has a reason for living her life in the future, not in the present, and not living her life to the fullest and reaching her dream of becoming a fashion designer.  

The only exception to rules, of course, would be running away with Prince Harry—Kylie’s ideal man. A hot, fun ginger boy would be worth breaking all the rules for, of course.  And Kylie is sure Harry just needs the right, centering woman to settle him down.  But living in Dallas and not knowing Prince Harry make this a non-option.

Or does it?

Because when Kylie accidentally falls into the lap of a gorgeous ginger boy—yes, even more gorgeous than the real Prince Harry—all bets are off. Could this stranger be the one to show Kylie how to take a chance, to face her fears, and live in the present?  And could this stranger be the Prince Harry she has been waiting for? Kylie’s life takes some unexpected twists and turns thanks to this chance encounter, and she knows her life will never be the same because of it...

What I Say:

I would like to thank Fictionaddictionbooktours for allowing my to be part of this blog tour and sending me a copy of this book in exchange for a fair and honest review.

I have got to say the title of the book had me intrigued from the start, Waiting for Prince Harry, how would this be?  I love the book cover and it grabs your attention especially with the Union Jack.

We meet Kylie when she is attending the wedding of her brother, not wanting to be there and trying to avoid her mum from setting her up with any more of the groomsmen she heads to a quiet bar in the hotel.  In doing this she gets her dress caught and inadvertently lands in the lap of the sexy, gorgeous, perfect Harrison. 

Wow what can I say about Harrison, he is everything that you could wish for in a book boyfriend, handsome with a body to die for, gorgeous, can't you tell I'm in love here. Part of me wishes I could find a man like Harrison. He is sweet, gentle and totally different from his public persona, Kylie is instantly bewitched by him as I was and I am sure everyone that reads this book will be.

We follow Kylie and Harrison as they get to know each other in the first few weeks of their relationship, it is a sweet mix with both their emotions as well as trying to deal with the effects of Harrison's stardom, being the Captain of the Dallas Demons.  I don't think I would be able to cope in Kylie shoes. 

I have got to say though Kylie is just perfect for Harrison, she doesn't  know how much of a star he is and never wanted him for anything his stardom brings.  I loved their relationship, a bit tempestuous at times but both Kylie and Harrison have issues, little do they know they need each other to sort through them. 

Aven asked me on twitter does Harrison make my book boyfriend list the answer is a definate Yes, yes, yes! I had written my review a couple of weeks ago but felt I had to go back and tell you how much I loved this book, I think everyone should go out and buy this.

Think I have left part of my heart behind with Harrison and hoping to be seeing more of him (hopefully in other books). Aven sure knows how to write a hot man that captures your heart.

About the Author

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 this 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.
