Had LOADS of potential 2.5 stars

To begin, I LOVE the cover, oh my gawd!!!! Very hot... but then...
At first, I thought it was going to be a fluff piece but I was glad to be wrong, it has substance and depth until the author started jumping ahead days and weeks and getting vague. I have some many questions.
Why didn’t Zack’s dad ever go to any of his son's games? They are a huge hockey family - dad would have gone pro if not for a knee injury he was a big part of Z's life as well as the hockey aspect.
Why didn’t Sugar ever go to a game? She can’t study night and day 7 days a week and there are away games so it’s not like it would be every week? Why didn't she take an interest in the biggest part of Z's life?
It’s a sports-themed book but it hardly touches on the subject. The game, the atmosphere, the fans etc.
If Z wants her so bad why can’t he talk to her? Over and over he kept making that mistake, that’s weird when he could do something about it. He loves poetry so why didn't he speak through handwritten poems to Sugar?
I wanted to love this story BUT I only liked it - barely, one of my many pet peeves is unanswered questions and this one had lots.
