Book 2, Corrigan Falls Raiders

This book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.


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?

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.

This is book # 2 in the Corrigan Falls Raider series. It can be read as a standalone novel For reader enjoyment and understanding I recommend reading series in order. This is best to avoid possible spoilers.

Claudia and Chris meet when she becomes him tutor. Her counselor thinks she needs more on her college application. She assigns her to Chris.

Chris is just trying to juggle it all. He has a mom who wants him to go to college. He is trying to do what he can to get by. Can he do more?

The attraction between them is immediate. The sparks are flying everywhere and others are noticing. Really good addition to the series with some of our favorite characters thrown in.

Fantastic! Highly Recommended!

Loved this adorable story! This was light and fun as well as warm and fuzzy. Laughing and swooning and maybe some floating along with Claudia over Chris carried me through this story way to fast.

Everywhere else in the whole town of Corrigan Falls Chris Winslow was large and in charge, but in the library it was Claudia's' ice rink and he had to play by her rules in their study bubble. I love Chris and Claudia together, and loved that it was written in dual POV, giving us all the nitty gritty that they are thinking and feeling and it was fantastic.

Chris is a friendly, laughing, golden God, who is on the Raiders Hockey OHL semi-pro junior hockey team, who needs some help in chemistry and advanced functions class. Claudia Waring is wicked smart, super serious, very goal oriented and needs more extracurriculars for a guaranteed acceptance to the engineering program at the University of Waterloo. Always has been one to stay focused and on track, when she is given the task to tutor a senior student that is having trouble in two classes, she is swept off track by the golden God Chris and the social ladder that she has climbed up simply by being in his vicinity.

Loved the Sisterhood of Awesomeness and that they challenged each other to be more awesome, with even two boys who join in the Sisterhood to make it even better. This is my first Cate Cameron book and I am hooked. Fantastically Awesome story. Get it now! Highly recommended!
