This week I’m reviewing…


Here’s the synopsis:

Kenley Hunter finally has everything sorted out. Fresh from studying chocolate making in Europe, she’s
gambling everything on her new business, Confection Consultations.

All Kenley wants in life is people to take her seriously, to see the person on the inside rather than the
blonde beauty on the outside. While pursuing her passion of chocolate, Kenley discovered people seek her
knowledge. They see past the exterior and fall for the chocolate delights in front of them.

So with work as her focus, Kenley is ready to start her career in Dallas. Men are out of her recipe, because
she fears that once they get past her looks, they’ll be disappointed in what they find. Kenley decides she’s
all about the chocolate now.
Or is she?
Because a chance meeting with new Dallas Demon hockey star Nate Johansson might change everything.
Sent to Dallas in a blockbuster trade, Nate is somewhere he doesn’t want to be, for reasons that have
caused him heartbreak on multiple levels. Nate knows he will never trust a woman again after what
happened to him in Minnesota.

But when he meets a woman with an intriguing name and a passion for chocolate, Nate isn’t so sure about
his theory. And he might just learn a definition of icing other than the one used in hockey with Kenley as his guide…


Here are my thoughts:

If I had a dollar for every time I told someone how much I love Aven Ellis, my full time job would be sitting on my couch, wearing yoga pants, and- well, reading Aven Ellis books.

The Definition of Icing is the second in the Dallas Demons #2 series, but definitely reads well as a standalone book too.  I did enjoy all of the references to Ellis’ previous books and catching up with her “old” characters.

Nate Johansson is smoking hot, a hockey player, and totally sweet.  His only downfall?  He made fun of Dirty Dancing at the beginning of the book.  We don’t even need to discuss my thoughts of this topic.

Despite Nate’s terrible taste in movies, I give this one 5 stars.
