Product Description

Product Description

Disclaimer: This Entangled Teen Crush book contains adult language, underage drinking, sexual situations, and crazy squirrels. It may cause you to become a fan of hockey—or at least hot hockey players.

Karen Webber is in small-town hell. After her mother’s death, she moved to Corrigan Falls to live with strangers—her dad and his perfect, shiny new family—and there doesn’t seem to be room for a city girl with a chip on her shoulder. The only person who makes her feel like a real human being is Tyler MacDonald.

But Karen isn’t interested in starting something with a player. And that’s all she keeps hearing about Tyler.

Corrigan Falls is a hockey town, and Tyler’s the star player. But the viselike pressure from his father and his agent are sending him dangerously close to the edge. All people see is hockey—except Karen. Now they’ve managed to find something in each other that they both desperately need. And for the first time, Tyler is playing for keeps…

The hometown hockey hero won’t know what hit him…

Each book in the Corrigan Falls Raiders series is a standalone, full-length story that can be enjoyed out of order.

HASH(0xa70c3228) out of 5 stars So cute and romantic!! May 31 2015
By The Tale Temptress - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
Despite the fact that this book is about hockey and ice, it was a perfect summer read. This story captured me from the first page. I breezed through it so quickly, I was enjoying it so much! It's just a cute, romantic story with great characters and a simple conflict. Sometimes these are the best books you can find.

I loved Tyler from the beginning. This is a guy who is a huge deal in this little town he's living in. It's a hockey town in Canada where the populace pretty much worships hockey. Tyler, being one of the best, is sought after and idolized by the young and old alike. He's been something of a player, but has grown tired of that. His life is changing at this point, as he's not liking the direction both his dad and agent want for him. I loved this conflict he has within himself on whether or not he can find the voice to stand up and say that what he wants isn't necessarily what everyone else wants from him.

Karen captured me from the first word. She's unconventional in the sense that her circumstances have created more than a little bitterness within her. She's snarky, and standoffish with her family, somewhat understandably. It is so sweet to watch Tyler draw her out and soften her edges. The two of them together were such a great compliment to the other.

The conflicts in the story were deeply emotional, and I loved watching the two of them work through these issues. The author did a wonderful job with characterization, making me love her characters and care about their choices and where they would go from here. The writing had some sweet moments, some romantic ones, some angsty ones.... pretty much everything that fits together to make a great book for me. I loved it! And yes, there is another book to this, even though this one stands alone. So I'm really looking forward to the next book! Great read.

HASH(0xa70c327c) out of 5 stars Excellent series start! May 23 2015

Format: Kindle Edition
I absolutely loved this book! It's funny, touching, feel-good, and real. Plus, hockey. Really, I'm not sure what else is needed. ;)

Karen never knew her dad--until her mother died from complications after a car accident. Now she's living with him and his wife, along with her three half-siblings. It's far from an ideal situation--her twin half brother and sister are only a few months older than she is (yeah, that math took me a few minutes to grasp--silly me, always trying to think the best of everyone) and on top of grieving for her mother, Karen feels like she's created a big ol' blot on their perfect existence. The only thing that gets her out of the suckfest that currently is her life is her daily run.

Until she gets attacked by a crazed squirrel...

Tyler's billeting with a local family for his third year, playing hockey for an OHL team, (hopefully--maybe) one step away from the NHL. His unemployed father is more than a little over-involved with his hockey career, and together with his agent they're putting all kinds of pressure on the almost-eighteen-year-old. He runs every morning to quiet the voices in his head.

Until the day he rescues a reluctant damsel in distress from an overexcited rodent...

Karen's dad is notorious in their small town for his infidelity. Tyler's got his own reputation as a love-them-and-leave-them kind of guy. He says he's ready for a change, but can Karen trust him? Do either of them have time for a real relationship anyway, with everything else that is going on in their lives?

This book made me laugh, cry, and gasp out loud in a "no he/she didn't" kind of way over and over again. I loved both Karen and Tyler, and wanted nothing more than to get them to an HEA. I absolutely cannot wait for the next book in the series, just to get to see them again.
Rating: 4 1/2 stars / A

HASH(0xa6f517b0) out of 5 stars Great book! can’t wait for the next book in the Corrigan Falls Raiders series. May 22 2015
By Michelle@Book Briefs - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
Center Ice is the first book in the Corrigan Falls Raiders series, a new young adult (possibly new adult in future books) contemporary romance series about a Major-minor league hockey team. It is told in dual narrative between Tyler and Karen. I really enjoyed that because I have been reading more paranormal books lately and I have to say I have missed my dual narrative contemporary romances. And I didn’t even realize that I missed them until I started reading Center Ice.

One of the great things about Center Ice…other than the Hockey players…is that the characters are so completely read. You are going to see the good, the bad and the ugly from Karen and even Tyler. They are both great, but Karen especially found herself in a less than desirable situation, and she is a 16 year old girl. So she sometimes had a tendency to let her snarky and bratty side show. Not that I really blamed her though. I think having to go live with the father you never knew- after the death of your mother- and to find out that he has a whole family and he was cheating on his pregnant wife, which resulted in knocking Karen’s mother up with her. Yes, that is not the typical situation and it is bound to be more than a little awkward. Yes, the kids are going to resent you and the mother has every right to be a total witch. And the oldest daughter was a total witch, but the mom really surprised me. I kind of wish Karen had been a little nicer to her initially because she was surprisingly great about the whole thing. I kind of loved that even though she had every right to be cold and distant towards Karen, she wasn’t mean at all. It was refreshing.

Karen is only 16, so she does have some growing up to do, but this is such a tough time for her that you have to cut her some slack. And then there is Tyler. Tyler is so worthy of being a hometown hero. I just loved him. I felt so bad for him. In some ways I felt worse for him than for Karen. I know that sounds strange because Karen lost her mom, but Tyler has parents alive, but not there for him. They don’t seem to care about what he wants, only what they want for him. It was tough for me to read some of the scenes with Tyler and his dad, but I lived for the scenes between Tyler and Karen. I just loved the two of them together. And I loved that Karen wasn’t that into hockey. The scene were she found out Tyler was a hockey player cracked me up.

Overall, Center Ice is a great book. It is funny, sweet, heartbreaking, and an all around wonderful read. I loved getting to know all of the characters, and I loved that Cate Cameron wasn’t afraid to show some ugly sides to them. This is how they were and this is how you were going to see them. No punches barred. If you are a fan of young adult/new adult contemporary that is realistic and not falsely fluffed up, I would strongly recommend Center Ice. I can’t wait for the next book in the Corrigan Falls Raiders series.

*Disclaimer- I got a copy of this book for free in exchange for my honest review. I was not compensated for my thoughts.
HASH(0xa70c3504) out of 5 stars In Review: Center Ice (Corrigan Falls Raiders #1) by Cate Cameron June 14 2015
By Kim - Published on
Format: Paperback
Center Ice was a fun, quick read. I always enjoy a good sports romance and this one fit the bill nicely. I liked both Karen and Tyler. At times, they seemed older than most of the characters I encounter in YA books so when they did something immature, I had to take a moment to remind myself of their actual ages. The romance was sweet and the challenges they faced with their respective families were realistic. I did have some frustrations with the hockey storyline as far as Tyler’s dad was concerned, but they didn’t ruin the story for me. All in all, it was a good palate cleanser after reading a couple heavier stories. I definitely plan to continue on with this series.

I received a copy of this book from the publisher, via NetGalley, in exchange for an honest review.

HASH(0xa70c3744) out of 5 stars This one had it's cute moments and I really liked Tyler and Karen. But the family drama was a bit much and took over the story. June 5 2015

Review for Ramblings From This Chick.

Center Ice is my first book by Cate Cameron, but I love hockey and couldn't wait to read this one. While I had some moments that I really enjoyed, this book ended up just being okay for me. I wish that a few things had been done differently, and ultimately I just wasn't able to ever really get into this story.

After losing her mother, Karen goes to live with the family she never met. They live in the small town of Corrigan Falls where hockey is big and everyone knows everything about everyone else. Though Karen doesn't get off to a great start with anyone in town, that all changes when she meets Tyler. Tyler is the star of the hockey team, but he is the only person that seems to be able to relate to Karen. But Tyler is known to be a player both on and off the ice, and Karen doesn't want to be involved with someone like that. The more Tyler and Karen get to know one another though, the more Karen begins to realize that Tyler is a different person than everyone thinks he is. But can Karen take a chance on something with Tyler with everything else she is dealing with?

I liked Karen and Tyler, and they were great together. I thought that they were so cute with one another, and I really enjoyed how easy and light their connection was. These two were able to just be together and have fun, and that was something that they both desperately needed with everything going on in their lives. I was glad that Tyler was able to transform from a player into a guy that only wanted Karen. He was more than happy to have a girlfriend in Karen, and that was good to see. Karen was struggling with so much, and I thought that Tyler was exactly what she needed. I will say that I thought that Karen's mother's death was pretty much never dealt with. I felt like her grief was visible on a few occasions, but I really wish that the author would have sort of shown more of that because it really felt as though it was missing from this story. I also felt like the drama with Karen's new family situation as well as Tyler's parents sort of took on a life of their own and it sort of got out of control in my opinion. Those things sort of took over the story, and I felt like Karen and Tyler got a bit lost in all of that.

Overall, this was an okay read but it just sort of fell flat for me. I had been hoping for more of Karen and Tyler because those parts were so much fun to read about, but with so much going on I felt like that got lost a bit. I also pretty much couldn't stand any of the secondary characters throughout this story with a few exceptions. Karen's little sister Sara was a sweetie and I liked how great she was with Karen from the start. I also liked what we saw of Tyler's best friend and teammate. But it wasn't until the very end of the story that I started to come around on Karen's dad and her stepmom. I think that I might look for more from Cate Cameron in the future, and I am interested in seeing what happens with the next book in this series.
