My rating: 5 of 5 stars
This review is for MR. NOVEMBER (Vancouver Vice #4) by Melanie Ting. I haven’t had the opportunity to read the rest of the books yet. I have skimmed through the other books; they look promising, and I am looking forward to reading them.
I follow Melanie Ting’s Vancouver Vice Series and was eager to read the next book in the series. I was not disappointed. This story was adorable. I love both cats and hockey so MR. NOVEMBER gave me my fix of both.
AHL enforcer Marty Devonshire is asked to pose for a team charity calendar promoting a local cat shelter. While there, he meets volunteer Elaine Salang and Knightley the Cat; both changing his life. This contemporary sports romance takes place in Vancouver, Canada.
I really enjoyed the characters. Marty is super sweet. He is tough on the ice and shy off of it. I love how his team mates band together to try to help Marty gain the confidence to pursue Elaine. Although it was clearly all Knightley the cats doing. I love that Marty adopts Knightley and that they both have a scar on their face. They make very compatible companions. Elaine is a caring heroine. She is smart and hard working. She has a great family. I can understand why she was hesitant about Marty, and I’m glad she gave it another chance. The couple and cat are great together.
At first, I wasn’t crazy about Marty’s roommate, Jonesy, but he ends up being a good guy. I was happy that Amanda Richardson from AN IRRESISTIBLE FORCE played a role in this story. I like that her cat was brought up. I appreciated that Eric Fairburn from book one, THE TAO OF HOCKEY, gave Marty some sound advice. I also, love the tip-in hockey scenes with Eric.
The story was well-written and believable. It had a sweet ending. MR. NOVEMBER is an excellent addition to the Vancouver Vice Series.
