The Bombshell Effect – Karla Sorensen




This was my very first book by Karla Sorensen, and boy was I glad that I picked it up. As many of you know, book funks happen to me with quite the frequency lately. And getting out of it is no small feat. The Bombshell Effect managed that by being a fresh take on two favorite tropes – sports romance and enemies to lovers.

Within a few pages I was immediately drawn into the book. 

Allie Sutton and Luke Pierson met under certain circumstances that put them on opposite sides of the fence so to speak.  Immediate tension and sexual attraction sizzled and made their day to day contact increasingly entertaining and emotionally charged. Both, were mature characters and were willing to put their animosity to the side for the better good, until it just wasn’t possible anymore.

When they finally submitted to their passion, it was undeniably HOT. I literally vibrated and couldn’t prevent a sigh from escaping. I was utterly enchanted by Allie and Luke. Their love story wasn’t without hurdles or hardships, but they did their best, and I loved them only more for it.

I loved their equal footing, the way they could be themselves around each other. There were no hidden agendas, or expectations. Just Allie and Luke, two consenting adults, going after what they wanted. And WOW they made it work.

But there was so much more I loved about this story.

Besides the main couple, there were quite a few supporting characters that deserve their own story, and according to the author there is a good chance that they will get their chance. I honestly can’t wait to read more of this cast. Because of the way the author plotted this story, as well as her story telling, writing and dialogues – this book just worked for me. I made the mistake of starting The Bombshell Effect in the evening after work, and had to reluctantly put it down at midnight, otherwise I would have read until 4am on a weekday, and that hasn’t happened in AGES!!

I’m keeping a close watch on the author’s next release, and probably will be reading some of her backlog. The author’s writing is just too good to be ignored.


Allie Sutton just got a new job.

Not one she wants, and definitely not one she’s prepared for. She hadn’t seen her dad in years, so the last thing she expects upon his sudden death is to inherit the thing he loved more than anything (or anyone) … the professional football team he owned for the last twenty years.

Luke Pierson does not want a new boss.

What he wants is to be a good father to his daughter, the best quarterback possible for his teammates. What he doesn’t need is a blonde bombshell ruining the team’s chances at another championship. Especially when that bombshell turns out to be his new neighbor. The neighbor he was a complete jerk to the first time they met.

For the sake of the team, they treat each other like complete professionals. In public, at least. Behind closed doors, it’s a different story. And the fallout of giving in to that heat is something neither one of them can see coming.

Karla Sorensen has been an avid reader her entire life, preferring stories with a happily-ever-after over just about any other kind. And considering she has an entire line item in her budget for books, she realized it might just be cheaper to write her own stories. It doesn’t take much to keep her happy…a book, a really big glass of wine, and at least thirty minutes of complete silence every day. She still keeps her toes in the world of health care marketing, where she made her living pre-babies. Now she stays home, writing and mommy-ing full time (this translates to almost every day being a ‘pajama day’ at the Sorensen household…don’t judge). She lives in West Michigan with her husband and two exceptionally adorable sons.

  1. I don’t read many sports type stories but the enemies to lovers, that sounds delightful! So sorry you’ve had some slumps lately, but I’m glad this helped push you out of it. Sounds sexy as hell.

    1. It was sexy as hell, and I love enemies to lovers more than any other tropes. So I was delighted when I relaxed what I had in my hands.;-) unfortunately book funks are a part of my life – I’m just too picky when it comes to books.
