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…

My Review:

I am totally loving Entangled Teen newest releases, including Center Ice by Cate Cameron. The book revolves aroung Karen Webber, a high school student whose mother recently passed away and now she has to live with her father. Karen feels like an outsider as soon as she gets to her new home, and quickly learns that things are not what they seen to be. Everyone in her town knows that er father cheated on his wife with her mom and now she doesn't get along with her new step siblings. 

Her now stepmother wanted Karen to live with them and be part of the family, but everyone feels bad for her after getting cheated on and still wanting to have Karen in their lives. As Karen starts to get situated, she moves in to the basement, and soon develops a routine to go on for runs in the morning, where she soon meets non other than Tyler MacDonald. When Tyler finds out that she doesn't know who he is, it feels refreshing to him. As the two start to get to know each other, Karen soon finds out the connection that Tyler has with her stepsister, and she has to figure out whether she wants to keep seeing him or stay away from the comfort that he offers when they are together. 

Tyler MacDonald is the towns' hero and popular player among teenage girls, but on a daily basis he gets told what to do, and now he feels the pressure to excel no matter what if he wants to keep providing for his family. But when he stumbles upon a girl at the park, he knows that his playboy status is over after meeting Katen Webber, all he has to do now is convince he that he is the right person for her.

I thoroughly enjoyed reading Center Ice, the characters are well developed as they go through obstacles to be together in the end. Both of the main characters have experience pain in their lives, and now the pressure to do good and fit in is greater than anything they've both experienced before. Karen learns how to get along with the rest of the family, and form a special relationship with one of them. Whereas Tyler learns how to stand up for himself and not let everyone else pressure him into doing what he doesn't feel like doing specially when it comes to his career. Overall, I enjoyed the book and I highly recommend it. :)
