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.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...
Karen and Tyler have such a cute story. It has its up and downs but ultimately I think it is a pretty cute story. Karen and Tyler are seniors in a small town. In Corrigan Falls everything is about hockey. Tyler plays for the hockey team and seems to have a bad reputation for hanging out with puck bunnies. He doesn’t want this bad reputation to ruin his friendship with Karen. Karen has been through a roller coaster of emotions. She has moved in with her dad for the first time. His kids seem to not like her presence there. Tyler and Karen are both pressured to not hang out with each other.
I like this story because I feel like Tyler and Karen fought for their friendship. they didn’t give it up. I think that is great. It could have been easier for them. It was nice to see these two characters staying true to themselves. I definitely thought this was a cute start to a new series.
