Ava’s Prize is a story of two people who may appear at first glance to be complete opposites, yet in reality are very much alike in their heart of hearts. Kyle Quinn is, honestly, very unlikable at first – and yet even then there is a glimmer of what really lies beneath the surface of his heart. Specifically, his ultimately-good heart and the loneliness he experiences in spite of his wealth and success. In contrast, Ava Andrews is instantly endearing, the kind of character you want for a friend, and her life is brimming with friends and family who love her and invest themselves in her (and she, them). The supporting characters made this story for me, though, and I especially enjoyed the scenes in Kyle’s arcade – lots of fun and goodnatured competition. Bottom Line: Ava’s Prize is a solid story with electric romantic chemistry and several sweet moments. Both Kyle and Ava experience steady character growth over the course of the novel, and readers will experience a wide range of emotions as they follow the plot. The fact that several characters have specific medical needs not usually seen in contemporary romance adds another dimension to this already layered story and keeps readers invested in the characters.

Set in the hot Northern California startup market, Ava’s prize took me for a ride I have actually lived through. There were many places in the book that truly hit the nail on the head for me so know that the things going on in the story actually happen in real life. At its heart, Ava’s Prize is about Ava Andrews and Kyle Quinn. These two need to come to terms with what they perceive as their own…failings…before they can feel – and be – successful in life and love. Kyle starts off a bit stiff, at least to me, but he really does have a heart of gold. And Ava, well, she doesn’t show her soft side often but when she does, she shines. Wait until you meet Ben, a kid who is a big part of the backstory, and you’ll want to adopt him, hug him, and then give him anything he wants. Adorbs! Kyle’s sister? Well, alls well that ends well but that’s all I’ll say. Ava and Kyle go through a lot, mostly torturing own selves, to finally be together but we all knew that it could happen. Getting THEM to believe it was the hard part.
