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.

Sunny Shelly’s Review: 5 Stars
I really liked the other two Washington Wolves books (Bombshell Effect and Ex Effect), so I was excited to see Allie’s bestie, Paige, get her own story. But what I read was so much more than the typical fake marriage story.
Paige needs a husband to claim an inheritance. Read one of those books before. But Logan needing a wife so he doesn’t lost custody of his four teenage half-sisters… great addition to this trope! The relationship between Logan and Paige is a fantastic slow burn, full of passion and fire. But then there is the extra layer of all the girls, and how Paige develops her own relationships with them is just as much a part of this love story. It’s done so well, and I didn’t at all feel like it was being forced from any of them.
The girls are a hoot. Especially those twins. I saw that they will be part of a new spin-off series, and I can’t wait to read that!
I received an advanced copy and voluntarily left a review.
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.
