The Definition of Icing - Aven Ellis

#Review: The Definition of Icing by Aven Ellis @AvenEllis


Kenley Hunter finally has everything sorted out. Fresh from studying chocolate making in Europe, she’s gambling everything on her new business, Confection Consultations.

All Kenley wants in life is people to take her seriously, to see the person on the inside rather than the blond beauty on the outside. While pursuing her passion of chocolate, Kenley discovered people seek her knowledge. They see past the exterior and fall for the chocolate delights in front of them.

So with work as her focus, Kenley is ready to start her career in Dallas. Men are out of her recipe, because she fears that once they get past her looks, they’ll be disappointed in what they find. Kenley decides she’s all about the chocolate now.

Or is she?

Because a chance meeting with new Dallas Demon hockey star Nate Johansson might change everything. Sent to Dallas in a blockbuster trade, Nate is somewhere he doesn’t want to be, for reasons that have caused him heartbreak on multiple levels. Nate knows he will never trust a woman again after what happened to him in Minnesota.

But when he meets a woman with an intriguing name and a passion for chocolate, Nate isn’t so sure about his theory. And he might just learn a definition of icing other than the one used in hockey with Kenley as his guide…


I’ve been on a mission to read Aven Ellis’ back catalogue that I missed before I discovered her work, this is one of those books. I’ve learned now that to pick up an Aven Ellis book is to dive into a happy comfortable world where two people are going to discover what true love really means.

In The Definition of Icing we meet Kenley. Kenley runs Confection Consultations, she is a chocolate specialist who ensures that the people she works with love and understand chocolate just as much as she does when she is finished.

On a photo shoot ice hockey star Nate steps in to help her handle an awkward situation and the intense attraction between the two in incredible. They are both people who have been terribly hurt in the past but as readers we get to watch as they negotiate getting to know each other and learning what it means to trust someone again.

These are two people who are completely adorable to watch falling in love and this, as with all of Aven Ellis’ books, is an absolute treat, although you may want a few bars of chocolate by your side for this one!
