Series: Chicago On Ice #3
Release Date ~ 17th May 2017
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.
If only she had that same sparkle in her personal life.
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?

Woo hoo! My favourite Aven Ellis is back with the latest book in her Chicago on Ice series. ‘Save the Date’ is all about Event Planner Collins Brady and Chicago Buffaloes Rookie goalie Luca Ballerini, and it didn’t take long for me to become engrossed in their story.
Collins was a sweetheart, and as for Luca well, I do love a sexy man with an accent, so he was a hit with me. There’s an instant attraction when these two meet, but the course of true love doesn’t always run smoothly, and Luca and Collins soon discover if they want a future together they both need to make a compromise or two and make time for time for what’s important.
Save The Date was a warm, enjoyable romantic read. The plot was cute, endearing, and funny and one you can devour in an afternoon. It had Aven’s perfect balance of love, humour, friendship, family and a little drama with likeable main characters and entertaining secondary characters that you want to have as friends.
Another Aven Ellis book I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend.
