Waiting For Prince Harry by Aven Ellis - Book Review & Giveaway

Amazon USA Amazon UK Goodreads

Review by Anniek

Kylie is at her brother's wedding and her mother is nagging her about socializing again, but Kylie likes to be by herself. She loves to make clothes and aprons and hopes to start her own business one day. She has a job at The Dallas Boutique where she's hired to style the windows and the store. When she can't stand it anymore, Kylie leaves her brother's reception and ends up in a stranger's lap, drenching him with her white wine. Kylie is embarrassed and offers this gorgeous ginger-haired man a drink to say sorry. They end up chatting the whole evening, until Kylie is summoned back to the reception. Unfortunately they don't exchange phone numbers, which is unfortunate because when they part ways Kylie can't forget about him. Will they ever see each other again?

Harrison is the captain of the Dallas Demons. He's a star hockey player and paparazzi follow him everywhere. The moment Kylie looks at him in shock, he knows that she has no idea who he is. People and women especially love him for his fame, but never just for him. The moment Harrison leaves Kylie to go back to her brother's wedding, he can't accept the fact that he'll never see her again. She's stirring up feelings he hasn't felt in a long time or maybe ever. Being the star he is comes with a lot of privacy issues and going to public places will always be a challenge. Does Kylie have what it takes to deal with this?

Kylie and Harrison are both incredibly kind and creative people. Kylie loves to sew and has a good decorative eye. I loved to read about the clothes she chooses to put on mannequins and about her fabulous aprons. If she'd have her own store I would buy these aprons, no doubt about that. Harrison is very good at reading people and he feels connected to Kylie. They're so sweet together and I liked how considerate they are of one another, I really enjoy it when main characters in a story click so well.

Waiting For Prince Harry is a heartwarming and endearing love story about finding one's own Prince Harry. Harrison is a gorgeous ginger-haired man and I liked reading Kylie's descriptions of him. Aven Ellis always comes up with the most fun main characters. I love her sense of humor and she constantly makes me laugh out loud. The real Prince Harry got married today to his stunning bride Meghan, so I couldn't resist reading Waiting For Prince Harry. Aven Ellis is a fan of the royal family as well and I love that she includes that in her stories. I am a great admirer of Aven Ellis and I can't wait to read another one of her amazing feelgood love stories.


If you love reading about gorgeous ginger men, handsome hockey players and creative women, you shouldn't miss Waiting For Prince Harry.

About Aven Ellis

I have always loved to write. I completed my first novel at the age of 15—an angst-driven high school romance (Boy meets girl! Evil girl likes same boy! A deception! Will true love prevail?) Though I truly wanted to be a fiction writer, I also knew it was more practical to pursue a job in the communications field and write fiction on the side. So I went off to Purdue University and earned a degree in communication, writing for The Exponent along the way (apologies to anyone who fought through reading those early attempts at journalism.)

After a stint writing for a community newspaper and a public relations agency, and not enjoying what I was writing at all, I found myself a non-writing job and continued writing at night and on weekends. I completed multiple manuscripts that found a home under my bed. Complete it, print it, stick it in an envelope, and slide it under the bed. It became a routine for me, similar to “Lather.Rinse.Repeat.”

Finally, years later, I wrote Connectivity. I loved this story; I loved writing for William and MK. I became brave enough to share this story with new friends who became equally as passionate about these characters and their journey. I ended up submitting Connectivity to Soul Mate Publishing, and it sold. Soul Mate also allowed me to explore this idea I had about writing a hockey-based series, and the rest, as they say, is history.

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 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.
