Hockey Is My Boyfriend, Part One
What happens when ice meets heat?
Kelly Tanaka dreams of playing hockey for a top university team and even winning a scholarship. To achieve that, she’ll need to focus hard and switch to a new competitive team. An initiation prank forces Kelly to kiss Nick Ericcson, a handsome blond hockey player. And that kiss leads to her first relationship and a host of other distractions.
Phil Davidson is tall, dark, and irritated. He’s been Kelly’s best friend since they laced up skates together as kids. Although he’s had lots of girlfriends, he’s never forgotten Kelly’s promise that she would tell him when she was ready to date. And now, he’s determined to force a substitution and become her new boyfriend.
Can a summer fling turn into real love?
From leaping raging rivers to driving collegiate opponents into the boards, there is no physical challenge Kelly Tanaka won’t take. But when it comes to love, she’s running scared. Luckily for her, a job at a summer hockey camp is the last place she would expect to meet Mr. Right. Sure enough, from an overconfident ladies man to a tongue-tied nerd, all the guys here are Mr. Wrong. And there's no way she could be interested in a tall, muscular centreman who looks young and acts even younger.
James Frechette has just been selected near the top of the NHL draft. He’s completely confident about his hockey skills, but when it comes to women, he’s wiping out. The summer is his chance to hone his social skills. The problem is that there’s only one girl at his hockey camp, and he really likes her—but so does every other instructor there. Can he overcome his awkwardness and convince Kelly to take a chance on him?
Hockey Is My Boyfriend, Part Three
What if you had only loved two guys in your life—and then you got to choose?
It’s crunch time for Kelly Tanaka. Now that she’s graduated, her life in competitive hockey is over and all she wants is a career that’s related to hockey. She’s going to have to start at the bottom, but before she can climb the first rung of the corporate ladder, her love life explodes.
James Frechette is playing in the NHL now. He has money, great teammates, and his choice of willing women. But what he really wants is the one person who got away.
Phil Davidson has also graduated and wants to get his life in order. Travel and a good job are already checked off, so now he can focus on reuniting with the woman he’s loved forever. But he’ll have to battle some competition for that goal.
Will Kelly decide that her first job is her priority? Will Phil get a chance to prove that first love is the best love? Or will James make good on his vow to win her back?
