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 fears 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. 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 guy—yes, even more gorgeous than the real Prince Harry—all bets are off. Kylie’s life takes some unexpected twists and turns thanks to this encounter. Could this stranger be the one to show Kylie how to live in the present?
I’m pretty sure it’s a legit law of physics that you can’t read an Aven Ellis book without the biggest, dopiest smile on your face. It’s literally impossible to not feel happy and for your soul to not feel lighter as you get lost in her stories and Waiting for Prince Harry was no exception. I loved this incredibly sweet story, with a wonderfully warm and intelligent heroine and the hottest and most swoon worthy of heroes!
Kylie has plans – plans for her career, plans for her future wedded bliss, plans for her closet, you name it, Kylie has a label maker, binders and Pinterest boards to ensure everything is laid out just so. What she doesn’t plan for is to fall into the lap of one Harrison Flynn. Ladies, let’s take a moment of silence for all the ovaries that went kaboom in delirium at the perfection of this hunk. Harrison is exactly what Kylie needs; she just doesn’t know it yet. He sees in her, the potential for greatness, recognises the talent she has for design and doesn’t hesitate to encourage it. While Kylie didn’t factor Harrison into her plans, she can’t help but fall for the Hockey captain with hidden depths and despite best efforts to keep him firmly in the friend zone, chemistry sizzles and the romance is worthy of coming over with a case of the vapours.
I adored Kylie as a heroine! She was so warm and witty and downright hilarious at times. I loved how organised she was and how she shares a talent with her creator for accessorizing and her eye for details. Aven has a way of ensuring the reader can envision each scene perfectly and made it so easy to get lost in the story. Harrison is an all-round dreamboat but I loved how vulnerable he was, especially with regards to how his past affects his future. Feeling lesser because he never had a formal education made me feel really sympathetic towards him and I loved how Kyle drew him out of his shell regarding his insecurities just as he did for her. The world of Ice Hockey is something I have zero knowledge of and it was so interesting to learn more about the celebrity that comes with being a Hockey star, along with those assertive “Puck Bunnies”. Oh my!
Waiting for Prince Harry is a book that you’ll find very hard to resist its charms. Light-hearted, fun, sizzling with chemistry and with an all-round feel good factor, it’s one I highly recommend. Save it for a bad day, curl up with a cup of hot chocolate and forget your troubles for a few precious hours.
