The Ex Effect by Karla Sorensen ~ Release & Review

Title: The Ex Effect
Author: Karla Sorensen
Genre: Romantic Comedy
Release Date: December 5, 2018 Cover Design: Najla Qamber Designs

The 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.

This was such a fun book to read! I sucked it up like a sponge. 
Here's the thing, you want to feel sorry for Ava but at the same time you know she's strong enough to handle herself. Since she was born, she was put on the back burner. Her sister was the one who got the most attention and love. Ava didn't let that stop her from fulfilling her dream. Her and Matthew have a history which plays a huge part of the book. I don't want to call it fear but it might be a little of it. She's afraid of what her family is gonna think and that's what holds her back with Matthew. Matthew is great! He's had some ups and downs in his life but after Ava comes into his life, things are looking promising. I loved watching Ava stand up for herself and finally having respect from her family. These two have great chemistry and the author showed it perfectly. I laughed and swooned so much during this book. Such a great book!

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.
