I started reading this story before it was completed. But I help off on reviewing it until now.

The story is apparently year one of a series of stories based on the experiences of a college student and the various and sundry women he meets along the way.

There is a lot of romance along the way, it's not a "find em, and leave em' story. Personally I was hooked fairly quickly and very happy the story was not abandoned like so many here.

Now I can only hope Cold Creek begins work on the next instalment and that it won't take as long as this one did!
But even if it does, I will be happy to wait for the finished product!

Don't pass the story by, do give it a read, you will have to suspend some degree of disbelief for some of the adventures, but individually they are all plausible.

Well written, entertaining, and very hard to put down!

School + hockey + girls = happiness

Michael Stewart is an 18-year old Canadian native who is attending Michigan on an academic scholarship. He happens to be a very good ice hockey player. In his freshman year, life starts moving very fast.

The hockey team wants him - fine. His stunning neighbor wants him - fine. Her equally stunning twin sister wants him - (very) fine. His gorgeous study partner wants him - uh, well...fine. Follow the trend, pick up the pace, add the inevitable complications and you have a great story. Young Mr. Stewart doesn't kick it out of bed for eating crackers - ever - but school and hockey are equally important.

The author has a formula with a chapter equalling a week in our hero's very busy life. If one semester + a few weeks = 40 chapers, then four years = ___ chapters; unless the NHL or life as an underwear model gets in the way. Like I said, the story is moving fast.

No editor to speak of and that makes some readers cringe. Plenty of downloads so people are reading.
