Winging It is a quick and easy read. It’s a story about two athletic people, Natalie West and Toby Cooper who used to be good friends. Unfortunately a lot of things have come between them and they've lost their easy friendship ever since Toby became a successful hockey player. The premise is that Nat has a big crush on Scott, who just so happens to be the cousin of her old best friend Toby.
So when Scott shows up in town after a year away, Natalie is determined to get his attention. What better way than to make him jealous by pretending to date Toby? I absolutely love novels that have a fake romance that turn into a real romance. It's so fun watching the characters start to feel something for each other.
The writing was well done. The narrative style was once again first person with switching points of view between Nat and Toby and I hadn’t problems with either of them. The plot was simple with that touch of that special complexity that a connection between two human beings in love provide. I had no problem following the story while I haven't read the first two books in the series.
I’m not a sports fan so a lot of the book sort of went over my head, but I absolutely loved Toby. I think he’s such a good character and an amazing guy! He's prepared to do anything for Nat. I love also his “bromance” with Winslow and Tyler, too. I loved it when the boys got all protective of each other. True friendship right there.
Didn’t really relate or like Nat too much. She's endearing but also not tactful whatsoever, which is quite funny sometimes. I’ll give her this, she doesn't pretend to be someone she isn't. That I appreciated. She was the same girl throughout no big makeovers or personality changes. Probably the only thing I really enjoyed about her.
I would give this book 4 stars. While I did enjoyed reading it, I never got that "couldn't put it down" feeling.
