Title: The Marriage Effect
Author: Karla Sorensen
Genre: Sports Romance
Release Date: June 12, 2019
Logan Ward doesn’t want any more women in his life.
Being a football player and legal guardian to his four younger sisters means his playbook is full. However, one of them just landed in the hospital, which gives his brother the shot he needs to challenge Logan for custody.
Legal counsel says there’s only one thing Logan can do—find himself a wife.
Paige McKinney doesn’t always think things through.
Like walking away from her modeling career without a thought of what might come next. She really doesn’t think it through when she proclaims herself Logan’s fiancé at the hospital, simply because the sexy—albeit grumpy—football player forgot his cell phone at a party and security won’t let her pass. It’s not her fault it was overheard by the worst possible person.
A bargain is struck, and a fake marriage is the perfect solution. But the simple solution creates a whole new problem: they’re not as different as they seem. The reluctant groom has fire inside him, and his impetuous bride is about to light the match.

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.
Logan is the perfect combination of heart and heat as not only is Logan a star professional football player, but he is also the guardian to his four sisters. Paige has left her modelling career in her past who tends to act first and think later and is uncertain of her future plans.
When an innocent comment causes a waterfall effect, they decide the best solution is a fake marriage as a short term spouse will solve both of their problems. On the surface Logan and Paige appear to be polar opposites from where they are in life to the way they handle their emotions but appearances can be deceiving. All too soon their feelings for each other are no longer pretend but are they prepared to make their temporary relationship permanent?
Not only were Logan and Paige great characters but the secondary characters are a delight. Hot chemistry, witty banter and so much fun!
