The Bombshell Effect by Karla Sorensen • RELEASE DAY BLITZ & REVIEW

Title: The Bombshell Effect
Author: Karla Sorensen
Genre: Sports Romantic Comedy
Release Date: June 14, 2018 Cover Designer: Najla Qamber

Allie Sutton just got a new job. 
Not one she wants, and definitely not one she's prepared for. She hadn't seen her dad in years, so the last thing she expects upon his sudden death is to inherit the thing he loved more than anything (or anyone) ... the professional football team he owned for the last twenty years. 
Luke Pierson does not want a new boss. 
What he wants is to be a good father to his daughter, the best quarterback possible for his teammates. What he doesn't need is a blonde bombshell ruining the team's chances at another championship. Especially when that bombshell turns out to be his new neighbor. The neighbor he was a complete jerk to the first time they met. 
For the sake of the team, they treat each other like complete professionals. In public, at least. Behind closed doors, it's a different story. And the fallout of giving in to that heat is something neither one of them can see coming.

Review by: Gina 

This was my first book by this author and I really enjoyed it! I thought it was fun, cute, sweet, and had a little drama thrown into the mix. These are all great elements that make up a great story! But with that being said, I did find the story to be a little bit predictable. There wasn't a part that made the story really jump out at me. I did enjoy the story, I did enjoy that characters. They were a lot of fun to read about and their interactions with each other were enjoyable. As far as the writing and pace of the story, I thought that was all well executed as well. Overall, this is a solid four stars as I enjoyed the story but wished for just a bit more. 

4 Stars 

Review by: Flavia 

So I haven't read that much from this author but the previous books I have read i really enjoyed it. And I may be in the minority on this one, but it was just okay for me.
Luke Pierson is the quarterback for the Washington Wolves and single dad. He was totally screwed over by his ex and because he is a famous quarterback he is so over women throwing themselves at him. All he cares about is football and his cute 6 year old little girl named Faith. He lives a simple life and tries to avoid the media as much as possible.
Alexandra Sutton is back home after her father has passed away. And not only has he left her everything which is a hell of a lot of money, but he also left her his football team, the Washington Wolves. But even though she knows nothing about football she decides to do the right thing and accept her father's gift and maybe this is just what she has been waiting for in her life.
The minute that Luke and Alexandra meets, not good. He thinks she is just another floozy trying to get into his life and all she wanted was to be a good neighbour. And then he finds out she is his new boss, double doozy for him. After a rocky start they can't deny that they have sexual chemistry and thus they have nothing to do but give in to their desires. But with all things nothing stays hidden for long. Secrets are revealed and hearts and feelings get hurt.
I enjoyed the story and loved the characters but still felt like I wanted more. Maybe it's just me. Maybe I don't know what to look for in a sports romance, lol. But maybe this one is for you, and even though I felt it was just an okay read, maybe for you it will be your next 5 star read. So give it a go.

"This book is EVERYTHING I love as a reader. It's hot, it's hilarious, it's witty and smart. YOU NEED THIS IN YOUR LIFE." - Amazon bestselling author Kandi Steiner 
"This book is like my own personal catnip. It has sports, it has tension, and the sexy bits are amazing. The perfect blend of hot and heartwarming." - Amazon bestselling author Amy Daws 
"She took one of my favorite tropes and totally dominated it, she killed it. Sorensen is a football junkie who took her passion for a sport and inserted it into a story. The Bombshell Effect is her gaming winning touchdown." - SBR Reviews

Just before they entered the room, something snapped through my ears at the sound of her voice, but it was nothing I could place, nothing I could pin down with certainty. We all stood to greet her, and as soon as I got the first glimpse of her dress, everything around me slowed to a sluggish, weighted crawl.
It was almost as if my brain couldn’t process what I was seeing, so the vision of her was reduced to blocks of color.
Tan shoes.
Tan legs.
Red dress.
Blond hair.
Red lips.
White teeth.
Blue-green eyes.
When it all snapped together, I lost my breath in a pained whoosh. This could not be happening.
As she smiled brightly at Dayvon, giving him her full attention, I realized she hadn’t seen me yet. My next-door neighbor, the one who had called me an arrogant asshole less than twenty-four hours earlier, was the new owner of the Washington Wolves. And she hadn’t seen me yet. 
Suddenly, I understood the rampant tug of nerves and the unshakable feeling that something was about to go very, very wrong. I swiped my hand over my mouth and let out a slow breath, straightening my shoulders and holding my head up high. I could do this. I’d stared down three hundred-pound linebackers who wanted to rip the helmet off my head as they tackled my ass to the ground.
I could do this. 
She turned in my direction, and I saw the moment it registered. The hitch in her step, the narrowing of her eyes, the slight purse in her scarlet red lips.
You,” she whispered.
Everything stopped. All eyes turned in my direction. The temperature in the room with that one hushed word from her went from cordial to downright glacial.
“Oh, shit,” I muttered under my breath. She crossed her arms tightly over her chest. The chest I’d ogled while she shoved cupcakes at me.
There was absolutely no part of this that could end well.

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.
