Reality Blurred - by Aven Ellis

My own copy
Original Cover

The blurb:

He lied to her. Fed her the same lines as he did all the other girls. Instead of proposing, he dumped her on national TV. Would a romance with a hockey superstar prove just as disastrous—or could it be the greatest love story of her life?

Cast as America’s reality show sweetheart after being jilted on a dating show, Skye Reeve is ready to stop being a brokenhearted woman by proving she’s more than what the camera portrayed her to be. She’s landed her dream job as a TV lifestyle reporter and promises to work hard to be a success.

Skye also vows never to be swept up in a fairy tale romance ever again, as she obviously has no clue what real love is.

Being in the same city as Denver Mountain Lions hockey star Maxime Laurent, however, might make this last goal impossible.

Dealing with ghosts from his own past, the Belgian hockey star is known for keeping his life off the ice private. He’s not sure if outgoing Skye could be a match for him, but he can’t deny his attraction to her.

When the two embark on a romance, will they be able to move forward from the past to let love into their hearts?  With no reality blurred, will Skye find real-life love to be what she had been looking for all along?

My Opinion:

*Book provided by the author in exchange for an honest review*

We are back with the queen of hockey and romance and we are back in the Rockies. It's back two in the series, technically book three, but book one was a short story. This book is dedicated to Maxime and Skye. We know them both from the previous books and it's their time now. 

Skye Reeve is ready for a new start, after being dumped in the finale of a dating show. It's been hard on her, she was heartbroken. In Boulder it's time to start her new job as a TV lifestyle reporter. 

Maxime is a hot Belgian hockey player and now alternate captain of the Denver Mountain Lions. He keeps everything very private, but that changes when he start going out with Skye. Can he deal with that?!

I really like the way their relationship develop. How they meet for the first time, their special moment in Brussels and all the moments they shared afterwards. Their attraction is obvious, the have great chemistry and Aven Ellis captured that beautifully. The characters have a deep connection and start to really understand each other. They are very different from each other, but somehow they can make it work. Of course there are ups and downs, but these made the story interesting and exciting. 

I always love the hockey parts in Aven Ellis' books and it was the same in this story. These scenes just add a lot of excitement to the storyline and they are parts of Maxime's life. 
Friendship plays a very important role in Reality Blurred as well. Whether it's Sierra and JoJo, Jude and Cade or Gavin. They helped Maxime and Skye through their weaker moments and made them smile again. 

Aven Ellis did a fab job with the characters. Both of them have a lot of depth, a past and all these things come into the story. Their personality and feelings create a wonderful story full of love, romance, drama and friendship. 

Aven Ellis has a fantastic writing voice, her style is charming, sweet, romantic, exciting and fresh. Oh and the title of this book is ON POINT!
