Sunny Shelly’s Review: Floored, by Karla Sorensen

Title: Floored

Author: Karla Sorensen
Genre: Sports Romance
Release Date: December 9, 2020
Cover Design: Najla Qamber Designs

If you’ve ever had a steamy one-night stand with a British football player and then find yourself pregnant with his baby, you know how Lia Ward feels.
To be fair, Lia didn’t know who Jude McAllister was when they met.
Studying abroad for her master’s program, all she knows is that she’s a little lonely and he’s very charming, even as they have an epically sexy argument about which type of football is superior.
In Jude’s mind, shagging the feisty American girl is exactly what he needs. He’s been fighting the clock of his long-standing football career and the younger players primed to take his position. Proving that he can feel like his old self again—something he’s been trying to do with everyone in his life—should be easier after blowing off steam with Lia.
But oh baby, when a plus sign pops up on Lia’s pregnancy test, that ‘one night’ becomes a whole lot more.
Now Lia and Jude have to navigate their impossible-to-ignore chemistry, and prepare for the parenting game, something neither of them know how to play.

Sunny Shelly’s Review: 5 Stars

Another great story from Karla Sorensen! Seriously, when is it not? Floored is another Ward Sisters book, and this time we have Lia, the wild twin, overseas in London studying for a semester. Since she’s American, she has no clue that the hot, tatted guy she’s flirting with is one of Britain’s great football stars.

Both Lia and Jude are feeling a little down on their luck when they meet in the pub that afternoon. One thing leads to another… leads to another… and leads to a surprise baby. Oops! The majority of this story is how Jude and Lia navigate becoming parents-to-be amid their cultural differences, geographical differences, and boatload of emotional baggage that they are each carting around. It’s done brilliantly, and I was shipping this couple so hard.

I love, love, love the soccer vs. football conversations between Jude and Lia. Especially since Lia’s brother Logan was one of America’s great football stars. We get lots of crazy from the Ward family in Floored, and I loved catching up with the crazy clan. Bring on Isabel’s story!

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.
