Author: Karla Sorensen

Release Date: June 14, 2018
Cover Designer: Najla Qamber
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.
The Bombshell Effect by Karla Sorensen
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
The Bombshell Effect was a feely and fun novel. A woman who has been living the expat life, Allie comes back to the US when her father dies, and she inherits his football team. When the sexy neighbor, with the cute little girl, who is short and gruff with Allie ends up being a star on her new team, her life really moves in a direction she wasn’t expecting. She’s a bit damaged and it just makes her more perfect for Luke
Luke is a famous athlete who has been burned by the past. He got his sweet little girl out of the deal, but it left him scarred. He doesn’t trust easily and can be pessimistic about new people in his life. At the same time, he’s down to earth, and understandable. I really loved watching Allie and Luke peel back each other’s layers.
The Bombshell Effect was a great read and unexpectedly thought provoking. It meshed in current events with the flip flop of the traditional hero boss/employee heroine troupe, and it felt realistic while still giving me the fun escape from real life I crave with a book.
A MUST READ from me.

Well, let’s see … I’m a wife and a mother. If the things that I write bring a smile to someone’s face, then I’ve done my job. I am obsessed with Outlander (both the books and the show). I’m almost exclusively a romance reader, which means some people will never consider me a literary snob. If I could meet one historical figure, it would be Jane Austen. I received my Bachelors in Public Relations and worked in health care marketing before I had my babies. I hate Twitter. I do it, but I hate it. Also, if you want to get on my good side, bring me wine and I’ll love you forever.
