Review of "Hockey Is My Boyfriend" - hockey romance

While I have done reviews of sports romance books before here, this one was certainly different than the others.  First - there are some scenes and words that are only intended for adult readers.  Second - hockey plays a role in the story far beyond just what happens on the ice.  Third - it was a quick read that left me wanting more - something series books don't often do.  So, this will be the first of three posts for this series and I thank the author for sending me this book to give it a shot.  Here is my review of "Hockey Is My Boyfriend."

"Hockey Is My Boyfriend" by Melanie Ting

Hockey, fiction, romance, new adult

Publish Date:
July 20, 2014

219 pages

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.
