If you've ever had a steamy one-night stand with a British football player and then find yourself pregnant with his baby, you know how Lia Ward feels.

To be fair, Lia didn't know who Jude McAllister was when they met.

Across the ocean for a semester studying for her master's program, all she knows is that she's a little lonely and he's very charming, even as they have an

Phuong ✯
Floored is the third standalone book in the Ward Family series. This book is following Lia Ward while she is studying at Oxford for a semester. When a one nightstand with a hot british football player turns into an accidental pregnancy, things are getting interesting.

I'll try to keep it short. I like to read the Ward Family series because of the Ward family. Who knows me, knows close-knitted family/friends groups are my ✨ kryptonite ✨. I really liked Logan and Paige story in The Marriage Effect

What to expect here:
⚽ one night stand turned into unexpected pregnancy
⚽ the wild twin in a new country
⚽ a swoon-worthy british football player
⚽ 9-year age gap
⚽ two characters with so much emotional baggage that I don't know if I should hug them or schedule a therapist appointment for them
⚽ one of the purest, cutest and funniest family dynamics ever because the Wards are THAT family for me

"I don't know what I did to deserve finding you that night because you were the catalyst, Lia. Whatever hope I've found for the rest of my life started with you."

If you know me, then you probably know I’m a sucker for the accidental pregnancy trope. When I found Lia’s book was going to have that exact trope, I was beyond excited because I knew Karla Sorensen would not disappoint. Once again, she wrote an amazing romance with complex characters dealing with real-life problems in the most hone

"The back and forth of the game is what makes it so beautiful,"

Floored was such a sweet and emotional read. I always think I’ll get through a story about a Ward sister without crying, and it hasn’t happened quite yet. I just love that family. Lia and Jude do their love story all backwards, but somehow it works for them. Of course there’s some angst, there usually is with unexpected pregnancy trope, but honestly the way these two just go together was perfect to me. I did get a little sad at how s
The parental abandonment issue is real. This book had me crying when I hit almost 90% marks I truly didn't expect that coming. I'm just a sensitive bitch at heart so bear with me.

I truly anticipated Lia's book because apparently, when everyone is drooling about Isabel and her retired MMA love interest and a single daddy I was just there thinking who is Lia going to be paired up with. Somehow there are things about Lia that I love more than the rest. She might have a twin sister, Claire but ever
"I don't know what I did to deserve finding you that night because you were the catalyst, Lia. Whatever hope I've found for the rest of my life started with you. I know how closed-off I was, how selfish I've been, and reparations begin now. If it takes you a month, a year, two years, for you to trust what we have, I'll wait."

This was soooooo good!

Absolutely delicious! A sweet, sexy romance that felt decadent and swoony and the perfect amount of emotional. I recently acknowledged that I think I have a thing for surprise baby tropes and this just confirms it: I definitely have a thing for surprise baby tropes.

I was hooked on Lia and Jude's story from the flirty, fun meet-cute. Their banter was the exact sort of snappy, smart, laced-with-heat kind that I'm a sucker for, every time. Their chemistry fired up i

tropes: sports (football) romance, unexpected pregnancy, age gap

Lia Ward is finally in the UK for her a semester but she finds herself spending her free time alone and missing home. A chance encounter at a pub has her meeting Jude McAllister, a British football player — but Lia didn’t know that. After spending a night together, they part ways and return to their own busy schedules. About a month later, Lia finds out she is pregnant and so she decides to meet up with him again.

Review to come
I really wanted to like this since I freaking adore the Ward family, however, this story fell flat for me. I couldn't connect with Jude as a person he came across as a man-child to me. I loved Lia and her sisters sooo much (Molly and Claire had the better stories sorry not sorry).

Jude just doesn't compare to the standards set by Logan, Noah, and Bauer. I seriously thought Lia would have a friends to lovers theme with Finn or maybe the unplanned pregnancy plot but with a hot professor from her t

Bloody hell, this was good!

I could not wait for Lia’s story. I knew it was going to be good. And the author did not disappoint.

This well-written, age gap romance is one I didn’t want to put down. You know those stories you read, that hook their claws into you right away and don’t let you go? Yeah, that was this story. The author brings so much emotion to the pages. I could feel everything.

The Ward Family.

They have got to be one of my favorite fictional families. I so wish they

Karla Sorensen nailed the angsty and steamy feels once again in Floored. This unique sports romance was full of intense emotions and all consuming romance goodness. She never fails to bring out the best and the worst in me with her brilliant writing.

Lia has come to England to do a special semester with renowned English Literature Professor. Foreign country. Strange people. So far away from home comfort and family love. She meets football superstar Jude MacAllister at a bar on a rainy evening. O

Oh how I loved Jude and Lia’s story! I cannot get enough of the Ward sisters and this story drew me in from the very first page. The chemistry and connection between Lia and Jude was magnetic and instant. Starting with their flirty banter and playful jabs to their sexy hookup that ends up in an accidental pregnancy.

Lia is an American college graduate that has just accepted a rare opportunity to study at Oxford University in England for one semester in their English Literature Program. Being so

I loved this book so much! Floored was beautifully written, emotional and a heartwarming read that I entirely enjoyed reading!
Lia and Jude were such amazing characters and the two of them together were everything! I loved them so, so much!
I loved seeing more of Ward’s, one of my all-time favorite fictional families, and I can'tcan’tcan’t wait for Isabel's book!! ✨

I was super duper lucky and got to read Floored extra early. I have to say that this book is everything & a scone with jam & cream on top!!

Lia is the smart, kind little sister everybody wants & Jude is the romance hero every reader deserves. I FLOVE him 🥰

It’s the kind of book that made me smile like a dope, cry like a baby and swoon like a love sick loon.

All the English countryside stars for this awesomeness. It’s getting one of my rare 6 stars... ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

I received an arc of this book.
Jeeves Reads Romance
This opens with the kind of magnetic chemistry that makes you want to clear your schedule and dive in for a full day of reading. I loved that immediate connection, and it kicked off a great first half to this unexpected pregnancy romance. The storyline is a mix of light, sexy, and emotional, leading with the sweet before slowly transitioning into the angsty. And while the back half took some of the sparkle out of this romance, I understood the transition and appreciate the depth it gives this ot ...more

Floored is the third book in by Karla Sorensen’s Ward Family series.
Lia Ward is a serious student with some serious goals, she goes in U.K for semester studying for her master's program.
I admired how dedicated she was, same goes for Jude McAllister. He is a football player and he loves playing football. He’s sweet, fun-loving and an all around good guy.
When they see each other, they know there is something special there. That one night between them changes everything for the both of them.

I'm really bummed that I didn't like this book as much as the others. I don't mind the unexpected pregnancy troupe but I didn't really feel the connection between Lia and Jude. I think they were very undeveloped as characters. They needed more time getting to know each other and I felt that bigger part of this book was just telling and not actually showing, it had weird time lapses one week later than months later, so where was the character development for both of them?
But I'm so excited about
so disappointed because I was waiting for her book since forever, but this was boring, maybe it’s the one night stand trope or maybe it’s me, but their relationship is so rushed and nothing happens besides her pregnancy.
I loved the family moments tho and I loved the baby, that’s why i’m giving it 3 stars 🏃‍♀️

Cue Kim Kardashian ugly crying because I loved this book. Lia and Jude's book has to be my favorite out of the sisters so far. Once the book landed in my kindle, I had such a hard time turning away from it. It was a damn near perfect book and this was pregnancy trope done right. The development of their relationship was realistic and at times heart attack inducing. Because character growth be damned! We just want them happy and together. Not only was their relationship developed well but the cha ...more

I just love the Ward family and the love and support they have for each other. They’re one of my absolute favorite fictional families.

This book has a lot fun dialogue and banter, it’s got a wonderful, supporting family juxtaposed against one that is not so loving and supportive. There’s a lot of emotional baggage these characters must deal with, and it’s well-written.

However, while I liked Jude and Lia, I didn’t feel the undeniable, soulmate connection between the two of them. I wondered if th

Knowing that unplanned pregnancy is one of my least favorite tropes, I probably should've skipped this book. It was definitely my least favorite Sorensen book. It took me a very long time to get on board with Lia and Jude. In the beginning I did not feel their chemistry at all. It felt really forced to me. It wasn't until the last few chapters that I actually bought into their feelings for each other. I also didn't like how they handled things for the majority of the book. However, I DID like th ...more
