The Ex Effect was ridiculously satisfying.

It had everything I love about a sports romance. An incredibly swoon worthy hero, a feisty heroine, and chemistry through the roof.

The Ex Effect was only my second book by Karla Sorensen but it’s enough to know that I LOVE this author’s style. From her dialogues to plot and characters – there isn’t much I didn’t adore about this book. It’s up there with any Susan Elizabeth Philips  (Chicago Stars #1) book. Reading this novel reminded me why I love sports romances so much. The tension, the scrutiny, the secrets – it all  makes for a highly entertaining and captivating read.

I personally loved Ava. Not everyone can kick ass in such a testosterone filled environment. The way she handled the players was admirable. And I loved how easy and effortless it was for her and Matthew. It helped that they knew each other and had history, but that was nothing compared to how well their personalities matched.

Matthew was a darling. I loved that he acknowledged that he was a couple steps ahead of the game and just wanted Ava to catch up. That kind of admission was music to my ears. I loved him for being able to accept his feelings for what they were.

At this point I’m hooked. I can’t wait to read the next book. And I really hope that Logan as well as Paige will get their own book. I wouldn’t be too disappointed if those two would actually get together – lol.

The Ex Effect - Karla SorensenThe headline could write itself:
Matthew Hawkins, star defensive end, comes out of retirement to play for the Washington Wolves.

Which is perfectly fine by Ava Baker—it makes her job as publicist for the team easier.

There’s only two problems. This particular football player was her first crush.

The bigger problem: Matthew Hawkins was once engaged to her older sister.

It’s been ten years since Ava has seen Matthew. He’s bigger, better looking, and best of all—completely single. Despite his history with her sister, the attraction between Ava and Matthew isn’t so one-sided anymore.

It’s hot enough to burn down the entire city of Seattle.

But this headline is far more complicated to write. And not just for the press or what it means for her family— because once her heart is involved, there’s no predicting the ending.


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.
