Winging It by Cate Cameron
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Cate Cameron scored a hat trick with the third book in the Corrigan Falls Raiders Series Winging It. Toby Cooper and Natalie West were best friends and hockey team mates most of their lives. However, once Natalie’s hockey options ended, and Toby started playing in the OHL they drifted apart. Now Natalie needs Toby’s help to be noticed by her crush/his rival, Scott Dakins, and act like her fake boyfriend. This contemporary sports romance takes place in Corrigan Falls, Ontario. It is suitable for young adults.
I love the Corrigan Falls Raiders Series. Winging lived up to my expectations. Once again, Cate Cameron does a fantastic job with her character development. The characters are very diverse and have many layers to them. Unlike his hockey team mates who are living with billet families, Toby is from Corrigan Falls, so he lives with his family. He has a loving family and good home life. He is an alternate captain of his hockey team. He is a good guy who is well liked. Natalie is jealous that Toby is still playing hockey. They used to play on the same line together: her a left wing, him a right. They had a wonderful friendship that began to fade once Toby began playing for the Raiders and dating Dawn. Having known each other forever, Toby and Nat are comfortable around one another and can be themselves. Scott is Toby’s cousin and rival. They have an interesting relationship that is a great example of “the grass is always greener on the other side.” They are very competitive with one another: hence Natalie’s plan.
I enjoyed the plot. It was believable and well executed. There were numerous twists and interesting events. I like how the story was concluded. While I highly recommend every book in the series; you would be able to follow this story as a stand-alone. Winging It is a great read for anyone that enjoys contemporary sports romances.
