Save the Date by Aven Ellis
Chicago event planner Collins Brady knows how to make the magic happen for her clients. From elaborate weddings to cute baby showers, Collins knows what to do to make an experience breathtakingly perfect. In her mind, she adds the sparkle that makes everything shine.
While she’s good at her job, her true career dreams lie elsewhere. If she could do anything, it would be to become an equestrian riding instructor. That dream, however, is shelved due to practicality. And that’s not the only thing Collins has shelved. After ending a relationship with her college sweetheart, Collins has taken her heart out of the game, too. She wonders if that magical kind of love can exist. But maybe it’s only a fantasy.
Or is it? All of that changes the night she meets Luca Ballerini, the rookie goalie for the Chicago Buffaloes. Passionate and fiercely determined, Luca has only made time for hockey in his life—until he meets Collins. Her spark hasn’t escaped him, and now Luca wants something other than his hockey career.
But following their dreams and hearts isn’t always easy. Can Collins and Luca find a way to live their dreams with each other?
Will love get past them? Or will this goalie make a perfect save of Collins’ heart?**
Thank you to the author for the book in exchange for an honest review!
Collins does love her job as an event planner but she doesn't want to be a party planner her whole life. She wants to work with horses. Right now though her life is working. She was in a bad relationship, that wasn't a love match, her mother doesn't let it go. Right now she doesn't want to be with anyone. They say when you're not looking, you find the things you need and want.
Luca lives his life for hockey. He has worked hard to get to be the goalie for the Buffaloes and he's going to keep that position. He saw Collins in a picture and hasn't been able to get her out of his mind and now that he's met her he wants to make room in his life for her. He's been so single-minded in his life up until now that he's having a time trying to change. Collins is worth it though.
GAH! I read this when I was going through some things in life, and it lifted my spirits. I love the feelings I get reading a budding relationship. Butterflies and giggles, it's all so lovely. Collins and Luca aren't perfect but they're great for each other. Have you read any of Aven Ellis' books? If you haven't then you should get on it! They're so so good and you won't regret diving into the worlds she creates. Leave a review it shows the author you care!
