The Ex Effect: A Washington Wolves Novel by Karla Sorensen
Available 5th December 2018!!
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.

Review by Bubbles The Book Pimp
Ava is the senior PR for the Washington Wolves, in her job she is made of steel, is Teflon and great at her job. But oh hearing that a new transfer is coming out of retirement on a two year contract she cannot help but be nervous… Matthew Hawkins has been on not far from her mind despite not seeing him for ten years…at 14 he was the only person who ‘saw’ her and gave her the time of day.. in a family of stepford robots she was and continues to be the disappointment…but Ava is far from disappointed at seeing Matthew again… and falling back into her teenage crush.. even if he was her sister ex fiancé!
I loved concept, I mean I’ve read a lot of childhood unrequited crush romances… but this takes it to another level of originality.. I was so grateful ( to the author ) that there was such a massive time frame between frame between Matthew and Alleys relationship breakdown and when Matthews and Ava were reacquainted… that time frame helped me get over the thought of sisters dating the same guy… because ( to my own sister… I’d literally be dragged into hell before I dated any of her ex’s 🤣🤣🤣)
I really like Matthews perspective and his character he was very believable, a wonderful main main and I actually really liked that he stood to his guns and called Ava out when he needed to #NoSpoilers! Ava was a great female lead with her sassiness and spunk and I really thought their interactions and chemistry was on point! And their chemistry was
First read by this author…and what a didn’t realise was the second in a series… kudos to the author for writing one of the best crafted standalone ( in a series that I have written ) so much so that I’m defiantly going to read the first in this series…. goes without saying I will be keeping an eye peeled for Logan’s book… that dark horse has a whopper of a story to tell I bet
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.
