Ella plays a major role as Bree's aunt in A Pet for Christmas.
Ella is Melisa Hart's best girlfriend in Christmas Lovebirds where Bree is Melisa Hart's kindergarten student.
Sharp-eyed readers will see Ella and Bree in Santa's Pet.

Played by Love is a wickedly delightful and incredibly breathtaking ride that proves without a doubt that you can’t play love. No matter how good you think you are at dodging and avoiding the call of love, you will never truly outrun it. With no warning it can easily overtake you until you have no choice but to look it in the eye and face the beautiful music. Why fight it? After all, if you don’t have love in your like what do you have?

Jaden thought he knew what he was doing. He was under the impression that he had a plan all worked out. He would jump in, get the girl, ride the ultimate wave, and then jump back off unscathed and none the worse for wear. What he didn’t expect was Ella. She was more than just the girl he wanted for a short time. She turned into the one that his heart wanted. The one that haunted his mind and starred in his dreams. She made him want and hope and dream when he knew how deadly they were to his plan. Can Jaden follow through on his foolproof plan, or will Ella end up ripping and obliterating his plan into a million pieces? Who will win this battle of wills, the predator or the prey?

Ella and Jaden were unexpectedly refreshing and beautifully raw in their motivations and endeavors. While one was in for fun, the other was willing to risk it all if truly bitten by the love bug. We can never know what we will find out about others, but while we need to keep an open mind, we also need to keep an open heart. True love is a rare and precious gift that needs to be cherished and safeguarded at all costs. Ella proves to be the catalyst that Jaden didn’t know he needed in truly seeing the world around him with a new pair of eyes.

One of my all-time favorite authors is Rachelle Ayala, and she never fails to entertain while also teaching.

Well, of course I love Jaden. He is one of the minor characters in Author Dani Evans "The Next Contestant" and it was fantastic to see Jaden come alive through the eyes of another author. And then we have Ella,
who is not your typical heroine. I found her
light and aloof; a very carefree young
woman. She too makes an appearance in The Next Contestant but it's a very brief encounter. I love how Jaden and Ella's story unfolded and that it was short and sweet with a hint of danger. I really enjoyed the finalle and I've heard there may be more to Kimber and Jax, which may spin off the end of this story! Of course that includes Jaden and his sweetheart Ella :). Bravo Rachelle Ayala for creating a loveable cast and bringing Jaden to life in his own story.

What would you do for lust, or love? Rachelle Ayala has done it again. Her writing talent just continues to grow with every new project. I've not read a lot of novellas, so the fast pace was a bit different for me, but it was a fun romp with all the delicious romance and steam you could ask for. I liked Jaden - a sweet man trying to be a macho frat jock, never suspecting that his plans to woo Ella would turn into anything more than a fun time, especially if she ever discovered the truth about his deception. Ella is great - maybe a bit odd, but in a good way. Funny and someone I could see myself being friends with. I really liked her and wanted her to get a happy ending and be able to put her past troubles behind her.

And when Jaden swoops in to rescue her and they really open up to each other... sigh. I rooted for these two all the way through. Steamy, sexy, and a lot of fun! Can't wait for Rachelle's next book!

As a huge fan of Rachelle's and of soccer, this book was right up my ally! I loved the hero that Jaden was and how innocent, yet totally not that Ella was. Jaden found a way to be loyal to his teammates, frat brothers yet still take care of his woman at the same time. Rachelle hooks you in from page one. The book moved fast but you could truly see how the two felt for each other and I can't wait to read more from her.

For a short read, it was a good one. Kept my attention throughout and the characters where easy to like, and the conversation after the book ended had me laughing.

Ella is an anime nerd. She seems sweet but some times I wonder if she really lives in this reality. She doesn't like jocks because she thinks they all are alike. But then she meets Jaden who plays on a soccer team as the goalie, and he is one hell of a goalie. He knows that Ella doesn't go out with jocks, so he pretends to be a techno nerd and prays he doesn't get caught.

Their relationship seems to progress pretty fast but then again he is trying to keep this secret from her, so he is always trying to juggle soccer and her. I was tired just reading about him trying to keep his secret. This story did keep my attention and I giggled in some spots and really liked how both of their feelings really started to show but I wish more of their feelings showed during the sex scenes. To me it seemed the sex between them was not how sex should be between two people who really are having feelings for each other. Ella didn't seem comfortable with the talking during sex. That was the only part of the story that I couldn't get into.

My favorite part is at the end of the story where the characters take over. I laughed so hard because I have never read a story that let the characters take over after the story is over. More stories should allow them to do that, it was so funny. I felt during this time was when the true Ella and Jaden came out.

I will read more of this authors stories because I did enjoy it. I want to know more about this couple and other couples in her other stories. Jaden and Ella are on my list of great characters!
