The Crush by Karla Sorensen – REVIEW –


The Ward family is seriously one of my all-time favorite families, and Emmett’s book is one that I’ve been anxiously waiting for, for quite some time. And let me tell you Karla Sorensen did not disappoint. 

Emmett Ward is everything you could want in a man, he’s sweet and caring, but he’s all man (if you catch my drift lol). And Adaline, she is the most caring person, always putting others above herself, and making sure everyone is taken care of. The chemistry between these two was palpable, and the spice level in this book…absolutely off the charts!  Every interaction between these two was everything I wanted and needed it to be. 

Karla Sorensen has created a world and characters that I adore. Everything from the setting, to the romance, to the small moments in between were utter perfection in this book. I love the relationship that Emmett has with his family and that Adaline has with hers, and the relationships they’ve created within each other’s families. I can’t say enough wonderful things about this book!!


Karla Sorensen

Release Date: July 21

You know that girl from your past that you can’t quite stop thinking about? The one that you pushed away because you had a goal that seemed so much bigger, so much more important than any crush you might have had?

That’s Adaline Wilder for me.

Nothing came before football. Not in college, and not in my five years in the pros. All I wanted was to win games, win a championship, carve my own path out of the illustrious Ward family football legacy. And I’ve done all that. But something is missing.

I’ve never been wrong about what I want. Except with her.

She moved on to someone else, but that baseball playing moron just broke her heart. I don’t blame her for not trusting me, but even Adaline can’t deny the heat when we’re together. 

I have one shot at winning her back. And I intend to take it.

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.
