Center of Gravity (An Ice Tigers Hockey Romance Book 2) by Isabella Cassazza was a cute romantic story of two people from different worlds colliding. I loved Emilia from the beginning, she is so relatable and her insecurities were well written. Matt was also an easy character to love, he has been burned before and has his walls a mountain high but things are looking to change. I loved this HEA read and did not want to put it down. I felt like this was the cute read I needed to get through the week.

Who doesn’t love a romance novel involving Hockey! Center of Gravity is a standalone friends-to-lovers sports romance (An Ice Tigers Hockey Romance Book 2) written by the awesome Isabella Cassazza. In this story we meet Matt who just got acquired by the Ice Tigers. Matt is a cynic when it comes to women. He firmly believes that they don’t do anything but disappoint you. Now, we also have Emelia, who tries really hard to make everyone proud. But for some reason it just doesn’t seem to work all the time. Emelia is an Italian heiress who is sent to Boston to run her family’s newly acquired hockey team. But things decided to turn for both Matt and Emelia. This book has a lot of twists and surprises that you don’t see coming. The characters are wonderful and interact well with each other. I loved this book and can’t wait to read the others. This is one of those books that suck you in in the beginning and you cannot put it down. I would definitely recommend this book to anyone who loves sports, especially hockey and of course romance.

I have read a couple of books from this author but she keeps on surprising me. I love a good friends to lovers story but this author exceeded all my expectations. This the second book to the Ice Tigers hockey romance. You can read this book as a stand alone but there are previous characters in this story as well. I was so excited when I got this book I stopped everything and started to read it immediately. I could not put this book down until the end. It only took me a full day to devour this amazing story.

Emilia’s life looks perfect but deep down it is far from it. She is the granddaughter to the Ravelli family. Emilia gets out to clear her head and she runs into a very handsome stranger. She ends up going way too far and now her life is going to change. Emilia is sent to Boston to manage The Ice Tigers and she is in complete shock that her handsome stranger is now her employee. She has a huge secret to tell him but will it ruin them both? Will Emilia find the love that she has wanted since she was a little girl or will she end up alone?

When you have failed at everything you have been given, can moving half way around the world to manage a NHL team with no knowledge of sports manager or anything amount hockey this could be a recipe for disaster.

Emma is part of a big conglomerate fashion company, but project she has been put in charge of has basically failed miserably. So she is determined to make this a success, people look at her and see the rich kid from a wealthy family but she has a secret she is not prepared to share with anyone.

Matt is a highly trained athlete who wants to do well for his team, but when an italian bombshell walks into the arena will he be able to focus on his career or will love prevail, but once Emma reveals her secret will he be able to forgive her.

I loved this story, the characters chemistry jumped off the page and the story flowed and ebbed into a beautiful story. I loved Emma’s character although at first I thought that she may of had a spoilt brat complex but the way he insurities and emotion came through and I felt like a friend. I was drawn to Matt also after his disastrous love life and you heart just sinks until he meets the beautiful blonde woman for a night of passion as you feel the chemistry between them and for him to get his happily ever after is brilliant.

This is the first book I have read by this author and although this is classed as the second book in the Ice Tigers you can read this as a stand alone book. I would recommend this book and if you’re looking for a great happily ever after story this is it, great holiday read also.

Center of Gravity by Isabella Cassazza is book two of Ice Tigers Hockey Romance. This book is a friends to lovers sports romance and is also a standalone so it can be read in any order.

Emilia loves under her grandfather’s thumb and while everything looks perfect from the outside, she’s a Ravelli after all, not everything is always as it seems. Now she’s being sent to Boston to manage a hockey team after being less than successful in other areas of the family business. Emilia will need to keep up appearances even though her life is about to change drastically. Matt has never faced betrayal the way he is now. It feels like he’s lost everything. The only thing left for him is the chance to win the cup. Then he meets the new team owner. Will these two be able to find themselves again? Will they lean on each other to make up for all they’ve lost?

This is the first book I’ve read by this author and I was not disappointed. The book flowed so well, the ending came much quicker than I wanted it too. I need to go back and read book one now! These characters are great! I felt for Emilia. You could tell she was trying so hard but nothing really seemed to please her grandfather. Matt felt hopeless but that didn’t keep him from wishing and maybe even dreaming a little. I couldn’t get enough!

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Center of Gravity is an excellent stand alone sports romance. Emilia is stereotyped as being the Italian princess, but she has been ruled by her grandfather for most of her adult life. Matt is a focused and determined hockey player with no room for distractions in his life. When Emilia’s grandfather buys Matt’s beloved hockey team and puts her in charge it is quickly apparent that they two of them have some unfinished business together (don’t want to say too much as it may spoil the story line.)
I really enjoyed this book, I liked the dynamic between the two main characters and the fact that they were (mostly) always honest with each other. I also liked the supporting characters, which makes me want to go back and read the first book in the series. Highly recommend to fans of the sports romance genre.

Emilia tries to prove herself worthy of the family name when she is sent to the states to manage a hockey team. Matt strongly distrusts women and doesn’t ever consider seeing Emilia after their one night of passion.
Emilia and Matt prove that a one nightstand can change your life forever and have the best of consequences that can give you an amazing love story. All the while finding themselves and their place in life and where they truly belong.
This is a great read that doesn’t take long to get caught up in and wanting more of the Ice Tigers Franchise.

Five Stars

Center of Gravity: A Standalone Friends-To-Lovers Sport Romance is the second book in the Ice Tigers Hockey series by Isabella Cassazza. This is the first book I have read by Ms. Cassazza,but definitely won’t be the last. This book can be read as a standalone, but the writing was wonderful and I look forward to reading the first book. Matt and Emilia have fantastic chemistry, but need help on relationship and trust issues. Hockey romances are one of my favorite genres, and this book is the best I have read this year. I look forward to reading more from Ms. Cassazza.

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Center of Gravity is the 2nd of 3 books in the Ice Tigers Hockey Romance series by Isabella Cassazza. It is the first I have read, but it can be enjoyed as a stand alone novel. I really loved it, and plan to go back and read book 1 next, then the 3rd book. The story is a romance, but it is clean, with only a couple scenes approaching the pg 13 range. The characters were wonderful, even though they both annoyed me at times. It is mostly told from Emilia’s point of view, but Matt had some chapters as well. I like books written so we can understand the feelings of both main characters. Both Matt and Emilia were overly stubborn, but I loved that they put their differences aside and quickly decided to co-parent. Emilia is a strong female lead character, and while Matt is stubborn as can be, he is also a really great guy. There are a lot of supporting characters that I bet will get their own stories, and I look forward to that. I recommend this book and will definitely read more.
