Review – Focused (Ward Sisters, #1) by Karla Sorensen


If you’ve ever seen your teenage crush ten years later, and he turns out to be a complete jerk, then you know how Molly Ward feels.

The last time she saw Noah Griffin was the regrettable day that she decided to climb into his bedroom window and turn her unrequited crush into something more.

That day was bad enough, but things are about to get worse.

Noah has become one of the best football players in the country, and he’s just landed on Molly’s front step.

As a new addition to the Washington Wolves roster, Noah’s presence is the key to Molly’s promotion in the front office.

The problem is, Noah wants nothing to do with Molly, and his surly attitude is making her job very difficult.

But he’s got another thing coming if he thinks Molly will be intimidated by one grumpy football player, no matter how much he hates being around her.

Once these two go head to head, their mutual dislike explodes into undeniable chemistry. But with what they have at stake, they just might detonate everything else along with it.

Focused was a sweet, funny, swoony, and entertaining standalone sports romance, as well as a fantastic start to the Ward Family series!

   Karla Sorensen did an excellent job with the storyline and characters. Her prose was lovely and she wove a romantic and swoon-worthy tale for Noah and Molly that I wholeheartedly loved. I was entertained from start to finish, and loved that Focused combined the sports romance, hate to love, and second chance tropes. Noah and Molly were absolutely wonderful, and I loved watching their romance unfold. It was sometimes an uphill battle, but totally worth it in the end, and I was happy with the conclusion.

   Focused was an excellent kickoff to the Ward Family series, and I loved Noah and Molly’s sweet, funny, sexy, swoon-worthy, and entertaining story. Karla Sorensen did a phenomenal job with this standalone sports romance, and I can’t wait to read the next one, Faked!


About Karla Sorensen

Karla Sorensen has been an avid reader her entire life, preferring stories with a happily-ever-after over just about any other kind. And considering she has an entire line item in her budget for books, she realized it might just be cheaper to write her own stories. It doesn’t take much to keep her happy…a book, a really big glass of wine, and at least thirty minutes of complete silence every day. She still keeps her toes in the world of health care marketing, where she made her living pre-babies. Now she stays home, writing and mommy-ing full time (this translates to almost every day being a ‘pajama day’ at the Sorensen household…don’t judge). She lives in West Michigan with her husband and two exceptionally adorable sons.
