I can’t believe it is the beginning of a new month already, and that the Hamilton musical will be premiering on Disney Plus this Friday!!! Saw it in theaters and it was amazing! Today’s book is a romance that made me laugh, cry, and scream at the characters to get their stuff together. The Marriage Effect by Karla Sorensen, takes sports and romance and wraps them up in a beautiful bow that will hold our attention until the very end.
The book description comes from the Goodreads website:
“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.”
Logan and Paige are a match made in book heaven. There is sexual tension throughout this book, and the story will suck you in. It is told from both Logan and Pagie’s points of views, which gives you an idea as to how the characters are thinking. This book made me laugh, cry, and fall in love with all the characters in this book.
Karla knows what she was doing when she wrote this book. She has a way of making the reader fall in love with the characters, the story, and become so enraptured with everything going on that you start to feel connected to the characters. I was so connected that my heart broke and it was sometime before I could put it back together. This book is such a great getaway from everything going on right now, that you won’t want to leave it even when it does come to an end!
