Center Ice by Cate Cameron
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
After her mother’s death, Karen Webber, moves in with her father and his family. OHL hockey player, Tyler MacDonald, is being pressured by his father and agent. The only thing keeping Karen and Tyler sane is each other.
I loved this story! Cate Cameron created a realistic and heartwarming story that I adored.
My heart went out to poor Karen. After her mother’s death, she relocates from Toronto to the small town of Corrigan Falls, where everyone knows everything about everyone. She moves in with her step father and his family. Not an easy task since she was a result of her father’s infidelity. She has a lot to cope with. Fortunately, she is rescued from an evil squirrel by cute hockey player, Tyler MacDonald (yes, I said squirrel – it is priceless), and they form a friendship that keeps them balanced. Of course, things are not that simple and there are some struggles along the way.
Tyler is captain of the Corrigan Falls Raiders. He is a consistent and smart hockey player. He is realistic about getting into the pros and is feeling a lot of pressure from his dad and agent, both who are total jerks. A lot of people are interested in Tyler because of his hockey talent and the possibility of him going pro. He values his friendship with Karen because she likes him for him and not his potential career.
I really ended up liking Keren’s step mother, Natalie. She is tough but fair. She is a forgiving and good person.
I truly enjoyed this story. It made me laugh, cry, and smile. It is believable and heartwarming.
There was a sneak peek of chapter one Playing Defense (Corrigan Falls Raiders #2) at the end of the book. It is Tyler’s friend, Chris Winslow's story. After reading the preview, I am anxiously waiting the next novel, if the entire story is like the first chapter, it will be amazing.
