While Texas is known for loving football, Lexi Stewart has always been drawn to the ice. Hockey is her passion, and she wants nothing more than to pursue a career in video editing for the home network of the Dallas Demons hockey team.

Lexi has an editing job for a corporate account, but it’s not fulfilling. Nor is her dating life, despite having the so-called help of The O

Sometimes it feels like an author has written something JUST FOR YOU. So, with that thought in mind, thank you, Aven Ellis for knowing what sport I like, and how I like my romance!

Breakout by Aven Ellis goes behind the scenes of the Dallas Demons hockey team and right into the producer’s trailer. Not only does the hot new producer have an eye for team highlights, he has an eye for the woman who knows how to make those highlights shine! Who knew one tackle (the only football reference) would ope

By now you guys probably know that I get really excited whenever I see an Aven Ellis book, you’re not wrong ;) I had the pleasure of beta reading this beauty and I loved being part of this journey, the characters are amazing.

The story follows Lexi and the ones of you who have read The Definition of Icing already know her, she is Kenley’s best friend, so we also get to read about Kenley and Nate again in this book, which is great.

*** I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review ***

When the latest Aven Ellis book arrives on my Kindle, I always get a little excited as I know I'm going to be spending a few hours of reading getting wrapped up in a great romance story that offers me everything I love.

“All good things don’t come to an end…Sometimes they’re just the beginning.”

Aven's books are like a happy place where you can escape to for a few hours and forget about everything else. And Breakout is no exception. She always creates the cutest stories with the best heroes: gorgeous and gentle guys, ready to love unconditionally. And that's the case with Niko Xenakis, perfect book boyfriend material.

Breakout is another fantastic addition to Aven Ellis' Dallas Demons Series and it might just be my favourite yet. What I love most about this author and her books is the high recognition factor. I know exactly what I am in for when I pick up one of Aven's novels - a brilliantly crafted storyline, lovable characters and plenty of romantic heartfelt moments.

Lexi Stewart is your normal down-to-earth, next-door neighbour kind of girl (ok, her parents are super rich and her best friend, Kenley, is d

The third book in the Dallas Demons series is just as romantic and funny as the previous two! Lexi is trying to achieve her dream of editing hockey for Total Access Total Sports when one day, the answer to her dreams literally crushes her against the bleachers to save her from a runaway hockey puck! From the start I was in love with Lexi and Niko. Lexi is such a headstrong woman who, like I always say about Aven’s female main characters, is someone I want to be friends with. She grew up in Dalla ...more

This book features everything you could want in a romantic comedy...Love, Romantic gestures, a gorgeous Greek man, humour, Thanksgiving and Christmas & recurring characters! What more could a girl want?

I was sort of tempted to finish the review there, as it really does sum up the book, but that may not be fair! I had another book already loaded and ready to start when Breakout appeared in my inbox, and the second I saw the email I knew I was reading this first.

Ok first off if you haven't read any of the others I would suggest that you do, not because the story would be incomplete without them but you would be spoiled as to what happened with the other couples that are in the books before.

In this book we get Lexi's story and the new producer for the Demons. Lexi is bff's with Kenley and Amanda, both from previous books and Kenley has her own story with Nate (hubba hubba). She's quiet but she is fierce about her love of the Demons. She goes and does vi

Getting a new hockey romance from Aven Ellis is always a surefire way to big smile on my face. I absolutely cannot get enough of them (and I don't even LIKE hockey! Shhh, don't tell). This time, however, our hero is not a hockey player, but the new tv producer for the Demons hockey team. No need to worry my hockey friends, we get plenty of time immersed in the sporting world, as Lexi, our heroine, loves all things hockey and does edits of her own for the team.

Lexi was a fun heroine to read about

5 Sparkly Stars!

Aven Ellis is my go to author - if I'm sad, her books will cheer me up. If I'm happy, they will keep me there. If I'm insecure, they will provide me some reassurance. If I need reminding that the world isn't a horrible place, they'll do that and BREAKOUT was no different - it is everything anyone needs in a romance novel and so much more.

“Come on, Lexi, trust me. Give me one of your hands.”

Breakout is the exact reason why I'm such a fan of Aven Ellis.
In just a few simple lines she sketches out the most amazing characters. She has the ability to make you fall in love with them instantly. And Niko and Lexi are no exception.
Now, it's easy to say that "a guy is hot" and leave the rest up to your readers' imagination. But if there's one thing our wonderful Aven Ellis never fails to do, it's writing a de

Aven Ellis is my go-to author when I'm tired of reading books where the H is a manwhore. I understand that many people enjoy books like that, but I guess I'm liking them less and less. There are only so many iterations of reformed manwhore books I'm willing to read before I'm maxed out on them. Ellis's books are so refreshing that way. Unfortunately, a nice and normal H usually means that the h is annoying, insecure, and whiny.

What I liked:

This is book 3 in the Dallas Demons series. I have been wanting this book since we met Lexi in a previous book. Lexi is an editor whose passion is hockey in a football town. She has been wanting to become an editor for the Demons since college. In her downtime she tries to attend practice for the Demons and take video to edit and put online. But this practice changes the course of her life. One puck over the glass and one obscenely hot guy who saves her from it, start the change that Lexi's life ...more

OMG, Aven has done it again, she's created another perfect man, an intelligent woman and a gorgeous love story between Niko and Lexi. These two are such likeable people and I found myself willing for them to become a loved up happy ever after couple. They are people from different backgrounds yet with similar goals for their own personal careers. They each have a great strength of character which really appealed to me as a reader. This book is smoking hot, humorous, and also sensitive. As Aven d ...more

Aven Ellis has a wonderful knowledge of hockey and the behind scenes work that goes into producing a game. Lexi loves hockey...and she loves making hockey come alive for others with her video packages. I totally identify as I love to share the hockey photos I take. Aven managed to take this to a new level by simply bypassing the obvious of Lexi falling for a hockey player and instead paired her with Niko, a hockey producer. They play off one another's strengths and pick the other up in times of ...more

A bit of a departure from the formula described in the prior book as this time our guy is a TV hockey producer rather than a player. So we missed the fame part. But still a really emotionally in touch guy who wants to wait for the nookie. I did like that we got to see more of CiCi. She cracks me up!

It's cutsy, the hero and heroine have the same problem with their acceptance, but the heroine has extra issues which I don't know if I'm being mean but don't mean much so it just felt whinny, but hey it's her issues.
