Book Review: WAITING FOR PRINCE HARRY by Aven Ellis

Genre: New Adult Contemporary
Publication Date: April 3, 2014


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 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—Kylie’s ideal man. A hot, fun ginger boy would be worth breaking all the rules for, of course. And Kylie is sure Harry just needs the right, centering woman to settle him down. 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 boy—yes, even more gorgeous than the real Prince Harry—all bets are off. Could this stranger be the one to show Kylie how to take a chance, to face her fears, and live in the present? And could this stranger be the Prince Harry she has been waiting for? Kylie’s life takes some unexpected twists and turns thanks to this chance encounter, and she knows her life will never be the same because of it...



What a sweet and beautiful story this was! Reading Waiting For Prince Harry gave me such a warm feeling in my heart. It was a story about finding true love, nurturing your soul mate, overcoming personal insecurities, embracing your present, and making your future happen now. Loved it!♥

Aven Ellis has a way of a writing beautiful fairy-tale stories and making them modern, relevant, sweet, and very funny. Every chapter in this book made laugh with the eloquence and originality of the writing so it wasn't hard at all to strongly connect with the story and the characters.

Oh, the characters were amazing! Kylie was the sweetest, most humble, and lovable heroine ever. She was always so amazed by how her life was turning out after meeting her "prince" that she just couldn't believe her luck. But even fairy-tales have drama and in this story it was a light and realistic kind of drama that forces Kylie to reevaluate her life and confront her fears so she can have a future with her prince charming.

Now to the "prince" of the story. The blurb doesn't give much details about his identity so I'm going to abstain from it too and just give you my perceptions of him... I loved him!! This man was a dream come true and a prince in every sense of the word. He's gorgeous, sexy, charming, goodhearted, humble, protective, and yet he was not perfect. This amazing prince had some fears of his own and it was until he meets Kylie that he finds the strength to fight them. My heart totally melted for this man, he was brilliant, selfless, and irresistible and he didn't even know it which made him so much more irresistible to me.

Kylie and her prince's story was fun, romantic, and endearing. From the moment they meet to when they completely fall for each other I absolutely loved them together. They were perfect soul mates because they saw a beautiful person inside and out in each other and that reflected through out in the story.♥

I totally recommend Waiting For Prince Harry if you want a sweet read that makes you laugh and makes you happy because it reminds you that only love can complete your life like nothing else can. ;)

Favorite Quotes:

"Sometimes you don't know what you need until you find it." 

"It's impossible to remain calm when this gorgeous Ginger Boy is smiling at me."

"You're different, Kylie," he whispers, staring into my eyes."

"My heart tells me this is the beginning of something really good. Of something I want to last forever."

"When I look into your eyes this is exactly where I'm supposed to be."

I'll never let you fall, Kylie," he says softly, his eyes locked on mine as he holds my hands in his. "I promise you that."

"You will always be my everything."



About the Author:
Aven Ellis has been writing fiction since she was sixteen. She studied communications at a large Midwestern university, and after graduation, Aven worked as a reporter for a community newspaper, followed by a stint at a public relations agency.

But writing about city council meetings and restaurant franchises was not as much fun as writing for young women trying to figure out their careers and potential boyfriends. So Aven got herself a job in television that allowed her to write at night. Connectivity is Aven’s debut novel; Waiting For Prince Harry and Chronicles of a Lincoln Park Fashionista (New Adult romantic comedy) will be published next year.

Aven lives in Dallas with her family. When she is not writing, Aven enjoys shopping, cooking, connecting with friends on social media, and watching any show that features Gordon Ramsay.
