Aven Ellis has done it again, written a story that makes you fall in love with the characters, cheer them on, laugh and cry with them and make your heart swoon with the wonderful sweet romance.
JP was a man that I completely fell in love with. He was so sweet and kind and that was why many of his relationships failed, girls didn't want safe, nice and reliable. But for Reese, JP was exactly what she wanted and needed and the passion between these two characters sizzled off the page. Their first kiss was so incredibly sexy, one of the best first kisses I've ever read.
Reese was a brilliant character, a model who loves oreos, she was very down to earth, independent and just perfect for JP.
The relationships between these characters and their friends and family were warm and real, these characters coming to life through the story. Aven writes wonderful, rich characters that are just so likeable.
Her humour in this story is again done to perfection and there were moments that had me laughing out loud
Aven is a fantastic writer, giving you a story that you fall in love with on the very first page and leaves you with a gigantic smile on your face.
Aven Ellis is back with another hockey romance book featuring the Dallas Demons. We know the two main characters already, because Reese is Holly Johansson’s best friend and JP Rochat is part of the hockey team.
Reese Brannon is a fitness model and blogger. She is done with men! Well, until she meets JP again. JP has just come back from Zurich, ready for the hockey season to start again. JP really wants to fall in love, but he always seems to be the great friend, instead of boyfriend material. I was really able to relate to him, because I’m always “the friend” too. On top of that of course JP is Swiss and has the same way of thinking I have.
No ice in drinks, he obviously loves Aromat, he speaks four languages, he plays the piano and home (Switzerland) is very important to him.
I had some difficulties relating to Reese. The only think we have in common is our love for Oreos. I felt like she overacted a lot and some of her decisions were …
Of course it’s all part of the storyline and that’s good, because it never got boring and was full of exciting moments. Aven Ellis’ style is on point, it’s so down to earth and close to real life. The plot had a beautiful flow and some fabulous scenes. The scenes were a great mixture between dates, best friends talking, family scenes, hockey, parties and more.
I loved catching up with all the familiar characters like Kylie, Kenley, Holly, Matt etc. It was … to see how their lives are now and that they are this … big group of friends. I want to be part of them actually ;).
I already said how much I like JP and it0s just prove that Aven Ellis knows how to create adorable and sexy male characters. He is sensual, sweet, caring and much more. Jean-Pierre is definitely the newest addition to my book boyfriends.
This book is full of little surprises and adventures. Every date is unique and special. JP and Reese have an electric chemistry and you can real feel it through the pages.
Both characters are hesitant when it comes to committing to a relationship and they are kind of standing in their own way. This is material for a conflict, but you need it in the book and it just makes the story complete.
I was in tears at the end and absolutely adored the epilogue. The title of the book is brilliant!
Playing Defense is Aven at her best once again. With her lighthearted plot, loveable characters and hockey, what more could you ask for? Aven has a way of drawing me in as a reader and taking me on a rollercoaster ride of emotions along with the characters. Playing defense was no exception, I found my self crying with laughter at her light hearted wit. Aven manages to inject such humor in to her plot, I love the unfortunate events her characters find themselves in and can not help but laugh out loud. But then she manages to throw a spanner in the works that will leave me sobbing and desperate for things to work out for the characters.
JP was a man that I completely fell in love with, probably one of my favourites of the series in fact. He was gentle, sweet and kind, too reliable and safe for most of the women he had dated. But not for Reese, JP comes along and he is the perfect match for her, he is everything she is wishing for and the chemistry between them is hot. The pages literally sizzled as things between them intensified. Reese herself was a beautiful character, she was so down to earth and likeable, and everything JP needed.
The relationships between JP and Reese characters and their friends and family, whom we have met in previous books, were as always warm and realistic. Each came alive through their story, each of which was consistent and really added to the depth and realism of these well rounded and likeable characters.
Aven is a one of kind writer, who manages to leave me a huge smile on my face time and time again. The humour and passion oozes from the page and as always I am taken on a rollercoaster ride of discovery. No stone is left unturned and Aven delivers once again, I certainly wasn't disappointed and as always we got the perfect ending.
Thank you Aven for giving me this escape and giving me one hell of a smile. Light hearted, humorous and sizzling with passion.
