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 realhuman 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…

**BETH'S 4.5 STAR REVIEW**
Center Ice is a really great and very sweet YA romance that I really enjoyed. I will say I am usually not a huge YA fan and like to have a little heat in my romances I read but when I saw hockey , I was a sucker and had to check it out. I am so glad I did, it was such a... ...more

This book has so many things that I love, all rolled into one little book. Contemporary romance? Check. Young adult? Check. Hockey? Triple check.

This was a really sweet romance. I know I say that about a lot of romances but this one really was. It took me a few chapters to connect with the characters but after that I was charmed by the way Tyler and Karen interacted.
Tyler is an up and coming hockey star. Previously enchanted by the fame... ...more

This book was just adorable. I really enjoyed seeing the Canadian minor league hockey culture. In fact, there are not many ZyA novels set in Canada,so that was fun. The only thing that bothered me about this book was the abrupt ending. I was reading along and flipped the page and about died when... ...more

What I Loved
This book was exactly what I needed for a quick light read. It was adorable in every way. I especially loved how Canadian this book was! I don’t often read sports books. When I do it’s usually about a guy on a football team. That must be a really American thing right? Because in Canad... ...more
