First Line of The Definition of Icing by Aven Ellis
“I think I’m melting”
Reasons I loved The Definition of Icing:
Chocolate Girl! I love that Kenley is an ambitious and creative chocolate consultant! I want this job! She runs her own business teaching people about the art of chocolate, runs tasting classes and helps organise chocolate statement pieces for parties. Mmmhhh, sounds like a delicious career!
Hockey Boy: Nate is protective and gentle and from the first moment we meet him, he displays both those traits. He has some issues (but nothing ridiculously melodramatic) and this causes him to push/pull a bit in the relationship but we can see just how much he is falling for Kenley.
Swoony romance: Together chocolate girl and hockey boy add up to a tasty and believable duo. They have chemistry in abundance, grow a fantastic friendship as well and I appreciated how they talked their way through the bumps on the road that they hit.
Cute chapter headings. Every chapter started with either a chocolate definition or a hockey definition and that just added to the cuteness feel and tied the chocolate/hockey themes together. It also gave a little heads up for what was coming next. And I adored when we got the definition of icing as it applied to both.
The Definition of Icing: A delicious, sweet coating for baked goods. Like iced sugar cookies
The Definition of Icing: Not sweet. When the puck is shot into the other end from behind the center red line and the opposing player gets to the face-off circle first.
Solid gang of friends: I love the warm friendships in this book, the gang are loyal, supportive and a lot of fun. I loved as well that we got to see this friendship develop and grow into something important that they all valued. Lots of friendships in books are already established before we start, so it was refreshing to watch this one grow before our eyes.

Who should read The Definition of Icing by Aven Ellis?
I’d highly recommend this to all fans of contemporary romances with engaging characters that draw you in. Fans of Aven’s previous books such as Waiting for Prince Harry will no doubt love this one. And I also think it will appeal to fans of Sophie Kinsella, Rachel Hollis and Rachel Harris.
Thanks to Aven Ellis for giving me a copy of this book in exchange for an honest, unbiased review.
