Disclaimer: This Entangled Teen Crush book contains adult language, swoon-worthy kisses, and sexy hockey players. It may cause you to watch a hockey game…or ten.

Sixteen-year-old Claudia Waring has never kissed a boy. Never been popular. Never been to a hockey game. All that’s about to change. Assigned to tutor Chris Winslow, a prank-loving, gorgeous hockey player, Claudia’s perfectly planned life immediately veers off course. And she kind of likes it. But as fun as Chris is, she knows she’ll never fit in his world.

After his latest prank lands him in hot water, Chris has to get serious about school or lose hockey. Not an easy thing for someone as carefree as the defenseman. The biggest problem, though, is how much he wants to help his cute, buttoned-up tutor loosen up a little. But while confidence has never been a problem for him, around Claudia, Chris is all nerves. Why would a girl as smart as her ever fall for a jock like him?

My Review:

Playing Defense (Corrigan Falls Raiders) by Cate Cameron is the 2nd the series, this is my first time reading this series and this author. I had no problems with starting with book #2. I now want to read the other books as well. The story starts out with Claudia, (I love the name) who is a book worm type, well her friend is more of the book worm type but she studies hard and gets perfect grades. She knows what college she wants to attend and her life is pretty much planned out till her School counselor tells her she needs to add tutoring to her portfolio to get into the college she plans on attending. She thought ok I can tutor some young kids, but instead she is advised that she will be tutoring another student, a hockey player name Chris. Now the quiet student Claudia has to deal with prank loving good looking Chris.

One of the best things I loved about this story is the different points of views. I loved reading Claudia’s and Chris. Sharing both their insecurities and also what they are good with. There is just so much awesomeness (you will have to read about being awesome in this book) in this story, I feel it is such a positive type book for teens to read, even though there is kissing and some adult language, this story was fun to read and very enjoyable.  The characters are developed and I loved reading about the other character’s in the story.  I give this book Five Stars.

I want to thank the Author Cate Cameron, Chapter by Chapter, NetGalley, Entangled Teen Crush for letting me review this book. I received a free copy of a book in exchange for an honest review

Genre: YA Contemporary Romance


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.

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…





Cate Cameron grew up in the city but moved to the country in her mid-twenties and isn’t looking back. Most of her writing deals with people living and loving in small towns or right out in the sticks—when there aren’t entertainment options on every corner, other people get a lot more  interesting!

She likes to write stories about real people struggling with real issues. YA, NA, or contemporary  romance, her books are connected by their emphasis on subtle humor and characters who are trying to do the right thing, even when it would be a lot easier to do something wrong.
