I can’t quite remember who recommended the first book in this series (The Bombshell Effect) to me, but I want to thank them, because without them I wouldn’t have been blessed with Karla’s magical ability to make me feel all the feelings while reading a flipping sports romance. The Marriage Effect was everything I was anticipating and so much more. A perfect combo of swoon-y, steamy, real, and emotional. Logan and Paige were just two people who needed the same thing at the same time, so they deci ...more

THIS BOOK SWEPT ME OFF MY FEET! I absolutely loved Logan and Paige’s story! I don’t know what it is about a hard-ass, broody, moody hero (who’s a bit of a jerk), but GAHHHHHHHHH! Logan RUINED me! I’m so obsessed with that man! So obsessed with the dynamic between him and Paige! I really adored this story! Read it in one sitting. And now that it’s done I’m just a puddle of swoony, mushy, feel good emotions. So sooooooooo sooooooo good! An absolute must read!

PS: you can read this as a total stand

When Karla Sorensen releases a sports romance, I know a sure, beautifully written narrative full of belly-aching humour, delightfully sweet moments, heated chemistry and heartfelt emotions is guaranteed. The Marriage Effect doesn’t fail to ensure your mind is enamoured; your heart bursting with so much warmth and enchantment from this faultless marriage of convenience between two seeming opposites.

Paige and I were the same. Whatever fire burned inside her, I had it in me too. I’d just never me

5 Stars!!!!!

Addicting, emotional and unputdownable.

When a book has the ability to make you laugh tears of joy and place a permanent smile on your face while also tugging at your heartstrings and making you feel all of the feels, you know it’s going to be a top favorite read.

I’ve wanted and waited for Logan’s book and Karla did not disappoint. I desperately needed his story. I was so intrigued by his character and the mystery behind his strong and silent type. Though what I didn’t expect was to

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

Paige and Logan put a whole new meaning when it comes to passion, devotion, and falling, falling, falling. Logan and Paige both find themselves in positions where if they don’t find themselves a spouse and fast, they will lose everything. Which is where there marriage sort of lands in both of there laps.

After reading the first 2 books in the Washington Wolves series, Paige has always been around and I was quite curious about her. She’s back and she’s got her own story with Logan, the quiet, grumpy but quick to find out, the all everything guy. This was more to it than a fake marriage story.

These two while quite different, but understand each other fairly well and need each other. Logan flies under the radar in every aspect, with football, life, but not to Paige. She notices him and is intrigued

My favorite the series so far!

First of all kudos to this author for delivering NON manwhore heroes. These guys are football stars worth millions but not a single manwhore so far! (I think I'm in love!!) Sports romance author's please take note!

I liked the first, unfortunately the second book didn't work for me but I adored this one. Logan and Paige were both likeable mcs, I loved his relationship with his sisters he truly went all out for them. He did a lot of pushing away but honestly it w

Karla does it again!

Hilarious, witty and sexy AF, The Marriage Effect is a must read romance this summer.

These characters will pull you in. Paige is sassy, had a smart mouth and a huge heart. And Logan... Oh, Logan ... My heart is still pitter patting like crazy over this guy.

I need my Logan. And more Karla's books.

I was lucky enough to read this one super early. It’s one of those delicious slow burn, chemistry for days kind of reads. You can feel the sexual tension pouring from the page! I absolutely LOVED Paige in previous books and had a soft spot for Logan too. Their love story is packed with genuine LOL moments, serious heat & a definite dose of feels. The author touches on some real life subjects in a really genuine way. Witty dialogue, fantastic supporting characters and just a yummy dash of ser ...more

This is the third and last book in the Washington Wolves series, and what a fun series this was! This one is still considered a standalone though. We did see Logan and Paige in the other books in the series. This is a marriage of convenience trope and it was done really well. Logan and Paige both have their own reasons for needing to be married, and in a crazy string of events, they end up telling people they are engaged to each other.

It’s a dual point of view. I’ve been so intrigued with Logan

The Marriage Effect by Karla Sorensen is book 3 in the Washington Wolves series, and if you have read the previous books you know these characters already!! I was so excited to read Logan's story and let me tell you Karla did AMAZING!! this is my favorite books of the whole series.

Logan is well known for being a quite guy that wants to stay far far away from social media, and when you read this book you will understand why is he this way. Then we have Paige, a

This has been one of my favorite sports romance series to date, each book and characters are unique and keep you glued to the page. In fact, as soon as I began reading this book, I did not stop until I was done. I totally skipped going to the grocery store, getting dressed, making my bed and socializing just for The Marriage Effect.

I loved the dynamics between the characters and for a while there it reminded me of certain scenes in The Sound of Music. The dialogue was enjoyable to read and I can

I’m just in love with this story. I was hooked from word one, unable to put this book down. There was so much emotion wrapped up in these characters, and I broke into tears more than once. Paige, Logan? They were perfect. But there was so much more to the story, a love greater than what they found for each other, and that filled my heart full. I loved these characters, and I can’t wait for everyone to read about them!!

I love everything about this book! From WWSBD to the first crazy honest conversation where Logan and Paige discuss how they both need to be married in a hospital waiting room.

Karla Sorensen takes readers on this funny, beautiful, real journey of Logan and Paige and those around them. It flows really well, has great connections of all the characters involved, even with Nick- Logan's annoying brother!

tbh, this was a bit disappointing for me. i felt like paige gave so much of herself to logan and the girls, but logan really only gave in to her, and mostly just for the physical. he kept waxing on about how he’s either indifferent to you or all in, but once he decided to finally be all in for paige, all we got was that they had a lot of sex. and at the first sign of trouble as a family, he wrote her right off as less important than his sisters and threw it all on her face; we didn’t see him fig ...more

The Marriage Effect was so freaking AWESOME! This book was a stunning marriage of convenience and sports romance that left me wholeheartedly satisfied.

Logan Ward stole my heart piece by piece the more I got to know him. This quiet, intense, hard-working hunk who stayed out of the limelight and protected his sisters at all cost, was such a beautiful person inside and out. It was so easy to fall in love with him. I loved how controlled he always was, except with Paige.

Man Karla really knows how to do football romance stories! I love Logan! He may be my favorite. He is so quite and distant but he has the biggest heart. His purpose in life is to keep his sisters safe, make sure they know they are loved, and provide them the best life. He doesn’t want recognition or the spotlight he does it solely because he loves them.
Paige has made a good life with her career. She has a tendency to be flighty but she has spent the last year taking a break from e

I have really enjoyed all of the books in this series, but holy crap - The Marriage Effect just tops them all! It's slow-burn perfection, filled with lots of love and humor and I just wanted more and more from these characters. Paige and Logan were absolutely perfect for one another - more so than I think I can say for a lot of characters that I've read about. Ahh!! I just loved them and the girls so much, and my heart was so full and happy by the time I reached the end.

This is an absolute must

I loved everything about this book. On a cold rainy afternoon it made me giggle and smile. Most marriage of convenience stories I've read have been drama led however this was lightwe and much more fun. Paige is my hero if I only had a tiny bit of her confidence I'd be happy. Logan in all his broody manliness, at times I wasn't sure if I wanted to thump him or kiss him. Throw in sexual tension and teenage hormones and it's a bumpy fun filled read.

Love love love the Washington Wolves!! And the women behind them just as much. Please read the series in order- The Bombshell Effect (Allie & Luke), The Ex Effect (Ava & Matthew) and The Marriage Effect (Paige & Logan)

Goodness loved the depth of Paige. She’s used to being thought of as property, man handled by photographers and designers in her modeling career. But to see her ginormous heart & her intelligence was such a delight. She’s the perfect big sister to Logan’s sisters.

Loved,loved, loved Logan and Paige’s story.

Karla this book is truly amazing!!!🙌🏻These characters will just pull you in and leave you breathless. I couldn’t get enough! ❤

Paige is so smart and sassy. A woman with one of the biggest hearts who is a bit misunderstood. Logan is just....gah! The chemistry is hot AF, the banter is down right hilarious. This book will give you all the feels.

This series was truly amazing! I loved every single character. I can’t wait for what’s next!

This is another fun and sexy read you won't be able to put down. The cover is my favorite of this series. The characters are charming, sassy and someone you just want to be friends with. I loved the plot of the book. A marriage of convenience and no strings attached. Well that is until you put your heart into the mix. Watching this love affair unfold is truly beautiful. I love Karla's writing style and I can't wait for the next book.
