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?
Reality Blurred by Aven Ellis (Ringside in the Rockies, #2)
There is nothing, absolutely nothing better than a romantic comedy written in a style that pulls one along on that crazy roller coaster called LOVE. Aven Ellis is back and love is in the air. BLURRED REALITY not only brings two delightful characters together, but teaches them both the value of letting love come first, the public be damned. Ah yes, the “public” need for gossip, TMI and titillating headlines almost sidelines this couple, thanks to another “public” fascination, reality TV.
Skye was one of the losers on a reality dating show, not only was she played by bachelor, she bared her soul to the public and she isn’t allowed to forget it. When Fate gives her a chance to find real love with hockey great Maxime Laurent, she discovers he has his own set of insecurities and a humiliating heartbreak that leave this gorgeous man just as insecure as she is. The last thing either of them need is to become fodder for the gossip rags and a heartless public willing to lap up the mud that is slung.
Now fighting to have a serious television career and hold on to the private man she loves, Skye will learn what true love is, if she gives Maxime a chance to show her. Should she leave him to save him from the public eye and the false stories printed about them? Will her past never let her go?
Humor, tons of heart, fluffy kittens and furry dogs, not to mention a growling stomach or two, Aven Ellis gives us a sweet romance that grows away from the bright lights of the arena and the television set. Yep, public voyeurism again, but this time we get the rest of the story, written with love! I always know Aven Ellis is going to make me smile with her endearing characters that may live in the public eye, but are just as human as the rest of us.
