4 of 5 stars (very good)
Two young hockey players, teammates and buddies since pee wee hockey become boyfriend/girlfriend and will be college students. The adventures of Phil and Kelly on and off the ice are told in this first installment of this series.
It is a sweet story, especially when told from Kelly's point of view. Her skills on the ice are well described early in the story and less so later as she is also learning what it's like to be in love, both emotionally and physically. Melanie Ting writes about both with a skill that will hook readers of both romance and sports. I recommend it for fans of both genres.
The only frustrating part is that the reader is left hanging at the end as Kelly and Phil are heading off to college. Only one thing left to do...get a copy of the next one!
I wish to thank Ms. Ting for a copy of the book in exchange for an honest review.
