A rock star with demons. A manager with a secret past. Can they overcome it all and find love?
Tia
I’m no stranger to hard work.
Hell, I’m no stranger to dealing with jerks. The only good thing my relentless bullying in high school did was make me strong.
As one of the best band managers in the industry I thought I was ready to take on anything.
Then I signed mega rock star Mikey Ecosta.
He doesn’t recognize me as the shy loser from high school and I’m determined to keep it that way.
Mikey
I always get what I want.
Money, cars, screaming fans… And the women? All I need to do is flash a smile and they’re falling at my feet. As a rockstar, it comes with the territory.
I’ve never had a woman tell me no before. Until I met my smoking hot new manager Tia.
She’s all I want and I’m determined to make her mine.

I’m the man the world loves to hate.
And I don’t care…until I mess up more than I ever have before and my world starts crashing around me. As long as I still have baseball, I’ll be fine.
At least that’s what I think, until a woman walks into my life and makes me start to feel things I’ve never felt before.
She wants to keep us apart—and it’s probably for the best—but I can’t stay away. Is my final play a home run, or is my life doomed to end in tragedy?

The connection was immediate. Fighting against love is hard. This is the moment to fight for their forever.
I’m living the life most people dream of: making music, surrounded by amazing people.
On the surface, I appear to have to all… but all I really want is for my best friend to admit that she loves me and break down her walls.
From the moment I met her, I knew she was it for me. And her daughter is the perfect little girl I never knew I needed in my life.
Can I make her see that we are destined to be a family, or will the darkness that hides behind her eyes consume her and push me away forever?

And I definitely don’t fall for my managers. Well, not again, anyway.
But now my new manager is lighting a fire inside me and making it hard to follow my rules.
I should push her away and build up a wall around my heart, but there is something about her that I just can’t shake. Will a relationship with her even work, or are we just destined to crash and burn?

Excerpt
“So, you’re really not coming out with me?” “Not tonight.”
“What are you gonna do instead? Sit in your room and hang out with Mrs Palmer?”
“Who?” “You know…Mrs Palmer and her five daughters?” Bryce was looking at me
like I should know exactly what he was carrying on about. The truth was, I had
no fucking idea. He’d completely lost the plot. “Spank the monkey? Flog your
log?” Ah, now I knew where he was going with this. Arsehole. “Choke the
chicken? Jerkin’ your gherkin?” Holding up my hand, I begged. “Please! Enough.
Please stop.” “So touchy. Maybe you should try giving the old slug a tug. You
never know, it might relax you. You know, take the edge off. Relieve some of
that pent-up stress.”

But I’m about to find out.

But then we ended up trapped in a blizzard together. One thing led to another, and well…
 
The rest is pretty self-explanatory.
 
She told me that I was just a fling. I forgot to tell her that I had already fallen in love.
 
At the same time that I realized how much she meant to me, someone else did as well.
 
Now, she’s got a rock the size of a skating rink on her finger and is about to take the wrong last name.
 
I’m down to the last minute in the fourth quarter, but I’m not sweating it. That’s always when I shine the most, anyways. This time, my touchdown is going to come in the form of scoring forever with Willow.
 
First things first, though.
 
I’ve got to stop Willow from walking down the aisle and marrying the wrong dude.

“Love at first sight.” It’s such a cliché. But when I saw her across a crowded room I couldn’t take my eyes off her.
 
One can say I’m the modest type. I don’t walk up to a girl, introduce myself and expect her to fall at my feet just because I’m a NHL player. If friends didn’t give me a little push me in her direction, I probably never would have approached her. But I’m so glad I did.
 
The electricity between us blew me away. From our first kiss to the first night we spent together it was clear. Paige was the one.
 
But something is holding her back, And with the trade deadline looming, she’s using it as an excuse to push me away.
 
Luckily, I know how to chase dreams; it’s how I made it to the NHL. I like a challenge, and I never quit until I get what I want. 
 
And what I want is Paige.

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.

 

“… this story is a tasty recipe for sweet sports romance, that you won’t regret breaking your diet for!!” – Mells_View

 

“There is just something so completely consuming about the way this author can write a story.” – BooksandBandanas

“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.
