The Lie : a bad boy sports romance Kindle Edition
Especially not hotheaded tight ends with tattoos and impulse control problems.
That’s why Dominic Walker is completely off my radar. Sort of.
Babysitting the team troublemaker when he’s forced to volunteer for the foundation where I work means I can’t exactly avoid him.
I wish I had though. Because once I get to know Dominic, it’s almost impossible to ignore the feelings he brings out in me.
Pretty soon, I’m breaking all my rules. I just have to hope he doesn’t break my heart in the process.

I am obsessed with it! And to say I devoured this book by Karla Sorensen is an understatement. Ever since Karla announced that she’d be writing Faith’s book, (Luke’s daughter from The Bombshell Effect) I was giddy AF. And it was everything I expected and more! It had the perfect amount of push and pull. The perfect amount of flirting and kissing and emotion. The perfect amount of heat and drama. It was so good!
Faith and Dominic had me hooked right out the gate. I loved Faith’s upbeat personality and her offbeat charm. She was such a fun character. She’s sassy, sweet and strong. She’s also a hard worker and very good at her job. I loved her personality and just adored her so much. And I’m a sucker for a grumpy hero any day of the week – so it took nothing for my heart to wrap itself around Dominic and his delicious, addictive, ooey gooey soft underbelly. He’s a misunderstood soul, but he also doesn’t make it easy to get through his layers. I loved the way things played out in this story and how this unlikely band of characters drew Dominic out of his shell and opened up his heart. There were moments that read like a movie to me – the descriptions so perfectly written that they flitted through my brain like I was physically watching them unfold. My heart completely took flight over how perfect these two were, and how much I absolutely adored their story... I could read about these two forever, I just loved them.
The Lie had EVERYTHING I want in a romance. Feels, swoon, sexy, a dash of angst, and ALL the banter. I LOVED every word. This book was yet another unputdownable example of what an exquisite storyteller Karla Sorensen is. It was a flawless perfectly paced ride from start to finish, and it’s gone straight on my top 2021 list.
Ever since my much beloved Faked, I’ve come to realize that my very favorite stories of Karla Sorensen are the bad boy-good girl/jaded and sunshine contrasts. She delivers them with a practiced ease- stories with intense chemistry, complicated character dynamics, but so much swoon. The Lie is everything I love about Karla’s writing- and everything I love about this trope.
Fans of Bombshell will recognize the extremely endearing Faith- daughter of Wolves owner Allie and Luke, now all grown up and running the team’s charity, Team Sutton. A role that puts her directly in the line of fire with the wolves’s new wild child- Dominic, a notoriously hot headed and off putting baller. This tatted bad boy is already treading thin ice with team leadership, and his antics soon land him in mandatory community service with Faith’s charity. Dominic immediately lashes out at Faith, assuming she’s only in her role because of her privilege and nepotism, and Faith is less than impressed by the arrogant, bitter, and bad tempered player that’s been thrown in her path. But their thinly veiled hostility is challenged by a burgeoning respect when they start to see….and learn….unexpected things about the other, and after a highly serendipitous occurrence.
Faith is everything I love about Karla Sorsensen leading lady. She’s smart, capable, strong, and driven. And she’s also humble, generous, loving, and oh so kind. I loved her quirky charm and her brightness. After a less than palpable beginning, she somehow finds a way to be open to Dominic, because she sees the best in others. She’s the kind of person we should all aspire to be- one full of empathy, love, and joy. Dominic is perhaps the surliest of any Sorensen hero I’ve read to date, but we find his gummy bear squishy center pretty quickly. This is a man that has been consumed by grief for so long, he’s learned to cope solely through isolation and hostility. His arrogance and broody armor cause him to be misunderstood, and he’s cared little about challenging anyone's perceptions. Until Faith unleashes the breadth of his long suppressed heart, until he wants someone to see the good in him again. He’s deliciously complicated and imperfect, but also epically swoony when he wants to be. Dominic more than makes up for his misdeeds and mistakes, with some ovary exploding romancing.
While some of the aspects of their connection require a smidge of suspending disbelief (fate really got this one on the head, amirite?!), ultimately their story is just adorable. These two have a sweet, tenuous at first but every strengthening connection that stems from a place of care and respect. We’ve got ample heat and tension between them, but even more swoon and charm. Banter, some heat, a bit of angst, and a lot of heart. And, like so many Sorenson stories, there’s a subtle but meaningful message around the power of authentic connection to catalyze compassion and healing. And these two have that authentic connection indeed- two seeming opposites that somehow end up being the one person who understands each other the most.
Karla Sorensen is quickly becoming my go to for heartwarming, feel good, swoony romance- and I just can't get enough of this Washington Wolves family. Looking forward for more second generation charm to come!
Karla absolutely nailed this story. Grown up Faith is a complete bada**, she’s smart and driven, and she doesn’t take crap from anybody, especially grumpy football stars. And Dominic, truly I think he’s my favorite Sorensen hero! He’s gruff and moody, and has a temper, but underneath that rough exterior he seriously has a heart of gold. His vulnerable side and his sweet side…. talk about SWOON!!
I can’t say enough about how great this story was. The character growth that Dominic experienced was truly inspiring. Faith and Dominic’s chemistry is off the charts, and their push and pull is nothing short of perfection. Absolutely loved this story, and I can’t wait to see what’s next!
