Hockey Is My Boyfriend by Melanie Ting
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Kelly Tanaka has a theory, the way a guy plays hockey will determine what kind of boyfriend he will be. She is great at using this philosophy for her girlfriends. The question is now that she is starting to become interested in dating will she be able to figure it out for herself.
I love Kelly. Having been a tomboy, it was easy to relate to her. Her character is really sweet and fun. I like that her team supported her even though she was the only girl. Of course, I think she handled herself well around the guys so it was very believable. I also enjoyed that she was fashion challenged. It made for some good entertainment.
I adore Phil Davidson. He has been a great friend to Kelly as they grew up. Yes, he goes through a bit of a boy slut stage but seriously the girls are throwing themselves at the poor guy. Who could blame him? I felt really bad for him when he was attracted to Kelly, and she had no interest in dating.
I appreciate Kelly’s hockey-boyfriend theory, and I agree with it. It is truly ingenious. I bet it would actually be found valid in a research study.
The story being told in two-person point of view was perfect. I valued reading both Kelly’s and Phil’s side of the story. It made me feel even more invested in both the novel and its characters.
In case it isn’t obvious, I loved Hockey Is My Boyfriend. The story is powerful and well written. The characters are lovable and thoroughly developed. Melanie Ting did an amazing job. I cannot wait for the next book to come out. I want to read it now. I need to know what happens next in college. I’m not sure my heart can handle the wait. If you love sports romances, you won’t want to pass up Hockey Is My Boyfriend.
