The Ex Effect by Karla Sorensen: Release Blitz + 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 is my very first book by Ms Sorensen and I have to say I am quite impressed. I was sucked in from the very first page. 

Ava Baker has her dream job and boy did she earn it. Ava is the publicist for the Washington Wolves football team. She is content and just trucking along when a blast from the past comes barreling into her life again. 

Matthew Hawkins is the new defensive end for the Washington Wolves. At first, he was pretty reluctant and wondering what he was doing out of retirement but once he sees Ava again, everything changes. 

A little bit of a backstory is Ava has had a crush on Matthew since she was in school but the catch to it was, he was with her big sister. While that puts a twist on the story, it was a good twist. The book kept my interest, I actually really enjoyed the story. Ava’s character was pretty bad ass and well, Matthew was pretty hot. I can’t wait to see what else Ms Sorensen has in store for us!! 

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.
