a book in review!


Holly Johansson knows some things in her life are certain after college graduation:

1.) It’s a long road to become a full-time author.
2.) She’ll need to work to pay her bills.
3.) And Dallas Demons superstar Matt Rhinelander will never return her feelings.

Holly knows her unrequited crush on the partying hockey player is ridiculous. There’s no way Matt would be attracted to a woman who prefers nights in watching TV or reading books when he’s known for his frequent bar hops and fast lifestyle. Obviously he would never see her as anything other than his teammate’s little sister.

Yet Holly is drawn to the other side of Matt—the man she knows has always been thoughtful and easy to talk to whenever she’s been alone with him. It is this Matt that fueled the crush Holly has on him. And she knows it will always be just that—a secret crush.

Or will it?

Because when Matt helps Holly through a crisis, her heart begins to believe that there might be feelings on his part, too. After a night of hard partying puts Matt in jeopardy with the Dallas Demons, can Holly be the one to save him? And when Matt admits he sees her as more than Nate Johansson’s sister, will it put both of them on thin ice?


I received this book in exchange for an honest review. Where do I start? Honestly, I think that Aven was put on this earth for 2 reasons, 1; to be a mother figure in my life and 2; to write romcoms. Her scenes are written with such detail and you can feel each moment with the characters. Now with that being said, Matt & Holly are my ABSOLUTE fave leads to date! PER-FREAKING-FECTION. Their chemistry is everything. From the opening scene to the last line, I promise you won't be able to put this one down. I think that where Aven's books differ from other romcoms is her sense to make the character so real. Holly is the most real female lead I've read in a really long time. She is you, she's me! I swear I thought of her as a real friend while reading On Thin Ice. And Matt, well Matt is what will have you turning the pages quick. His attitude and charm is exactly what I'd like my next boyfriend to have. He is the definition of a book boyfriend. Please do yourself a favor and pick up On Thin Ice. It will be your little me time Holiday timeout that you didn't even know you needed, xo!

About Author

I live in the Dallas area with my family. I enjoy clipping out recipes I will never get around to trying, working out, and chatting with friends on social media. I’m a hockey nut (Go Stars!) and watch as much as humanly possible. I also love shopping and fashion and admit to being obsessed with whatever the Duchess of Cambridge is wearing. In addition to be obsessed with the Duchess, I’m equally obsessed with any show or cookbook featuring Gordon Ramsay.
