Center Ice
Blurb (From Goodreads):
The hometown hockey hero won’t know what hit him…

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…

“It felt like he was kissing my whole body, even though his lips barely left mine.”



This was an okay story, but I found the pace a bit slow.

Karen was in a bad situation with having to live with her father and his legitimate family after her mother died, and Tyler was also in a bad situation with him father basically wanting to use him for cash!

“He’s not an asshole,” my dad said angrily. “He’s your agent! He looks out for your interests!”

The storyline in this was about Karen fighting with her step-sister, and Tyler trying to do what was best for his career, even if it wasn’t what he wanted to do.
The romance in this was okay, but it was a little predictable in places.

“So you need to make a choice. If you can be the right kind of girlfriend for Tyler? If you can be supportive, someone he comes to for fun and relaxation, someone who knows her place and her role?”

The ending to this was okay, but overall I didn’t really enjoy this one much.
6 out of 10
