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…


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 Canada it’s usually all about hockey. That’s partially why I loved this book! Our star athlete was a hockey player which I found way more fun! That could be because I don’t know much about football hehe.

This was a shorter book but I still found it a fun read. It’s mostly a romance story but it’s also about these two kids trying to fit it and be themselves. I think the author did a great job incorporating those two elements into one story. I think the little hints of other characters lives were thrown in there at the right moments. It gave us a little break from the main story line which could have been really boring it there was only one thing going on. It was just a nice well rounded contemporary story.


My only complaint would be that I wanted more. It was a short book and I just would have really, really loved for it to be a little longer. I haven’t read the rest of the series yet but it looks like we might get to see these characters in the coming books so I might get that “more” that I’m looking for.


I would recommend this book for anyone looking for a light and easy read. It was fun and entertaining and a perfect book when I was looking for something light and easy.


This was a great book for those looking for an easy read. It’s also great for those looking for a little more Canadian elements in their books!
