Disclaimer: This Entangled Teen Crush book contains adult language, ice-melting kisses, and a swoon-worthy hero. This fake relationship romance will have you wishing for a hockey player of your own…
Natalie West and Toby Cooper were best friends growing up, on and off the ice. But when Toby’s hockey career took off, their friendship was left behind. Now Natalie has a crazy plan to land her crush—Toby’s biggest rival—and she needs Toby’s help to pull it off.
When Nat asks Toby to be her fake boyfriend, he can’t say no. Not when it means getting his best friend back. But Natalie is all grown up now, and spending time with her—even when it’s just playing hockey together—stirs up a lot of feelings, old and new. Suddenly pretending to be interested in her isn’t hard at all…if only she wanted him and not his enemy.
This book is the third in the Corrigan Falls Raiders series by Cate Cameron, but I feel like you can read Winging It, having not read Center Ice or Playing Defense. Although, if you have you will recognize some of the other characters in this book. I enjoyed this book a lot because it uses two romances tropes that I love -- best friends to lovers AND fake relationships!

The premise of this book is a recipe for disaster, which are kind of my favorite. Toby and Natalie used to be best friends as kids, and Natalie is interested in Toby's cousin, so she wants them to fake date to make Scott jealous. I kind of don't get why she is so interested in Scott because he seems like he straight up sucks. I was into the fake dating thing, because from the moment they "practice kiss" I knew they were both in trouble.

This is the first book in the series, where the girl is also a hockey player, and that interested me a lot because of my own WIPs. I loved seeing Toby want to help Natalie with hockey so that she could play in college. He even sets it up so she can do a practice with a women's team in Toronto. That was so sweet, and I couldn't believe that Natalie still didn't get that Toby was falling for her then! They were so obvious, but they were both dumb that they couldn't figure it out until way later in the book.

Like the other books in the series, this is short, sweet book that leaves you with the warm fuzzies. I was pretty happy at the end of the book, and I definitely can't wait to pick up the next installment of this companion book series. If you want something with a happy ending, definitely check this one out.
