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.

“1000 Stars for Karla Sorensen newest book The Marriage Effect. Karla has written one masterpiece y’all are going to flip for!!” – Andrea Britton
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.
The Marriage Effect
I feel like I'm still getting to know Karla Sorensen. I've read one other series written by her but I still can't anticipate what I'm going to find in the pages that she writes. I think that's a good thing.
I'm really enjoying the Washington Wolves series and Logan and Paige were an unexpected pleasure. This one wasn't my favorite of the series and parts of it seemed a little rushed to me but, I liked getting to know Logan and what makes him tick. I can't really put my finger on what was missing for me though. A little more build up, perhaps? A little more backstory, maybe? I never really felt a connection between Logan and Paige so, maybe that? Like I said, I can't really pt my finger on it.
All that being said, I did enjoy the book and I'm looking forward to the next one.
