Publisher's Summary

Rule number one for the team owner’s daughter? Don’t date the players.

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.

didn't love lance's narration

most of the time he just seemed to have over performed - but every once in awhile he didn't and those parts were great, relatable. Stella was awesome start to finish!

Excellent story!

A bad decision, a chance meeting and horrible first impression has Dominic & Faith forced to work together for the team charity. As they navigate this new found friendship, they learn the other is not quite what they expected, however Dominic has a secret that threatens to ruin what they've built.
He thinks he's a terrible person and is happy to let everyone think so with the situation that got him into hot water with the team owner, but he isn't a bad guy.
I loved the slow burn of their friendship turned relationship. It worked really well in this book.
Stella Hunter and Lance Greenfield did a great job with these characters and it made the story even more enjoyable. First book by this author and it will not be my last.

3.5 STAR LIKED.. BUT SADLY NOT LOVED

They meet online.. cyber-strangers with false names and very different lifestyles and, over the years of their cyber relationship, they tell each other nearly everything and lean on each other as their friendship grows and grows. However, over those years Zip Codes, circumstances and professions change too.. and now they’re much much closer to each other than either of them realize. Now Dominic’s a Pro Football Player with a bad bad reputation for his temper and angry flare ups who’s joined the Washington Wolves and Faith’s Mother is the Owner who isn’t going to take any disruptive grumpy shit from him. Despite having mega-rich parents, Faith is kind, caring, strong, sassy and she’s always worked. She runs a Charity for underprivileged children and her Mom has just asked her to take on a new temporary ‘volunteer’ as a penance for his drunken late night disrespectful antics on the pitch.

Their chemistry is electric and their attraction to each other is instant which sparks a possessive behaviour from Dominic.. however, he’s still angry and grieving the death of his nine yr old little sister. So, will his anger cloud his heart and stop him from seeing beyond Faith’s polished exterior to recognize his one true deeply caring cyber friend beneath her privileged circumstances?. And, if so, will Dominic come clean about their connection.. or will the devil on his shoulder give him the wrong advice?

Worth a credit? Yes, it’s enjoyable - there’s intense chemistry, sweetness, sizzles, softness, obsession, angst, conflict, feels and swoons. It is a nice, and pretty predictable romance, that has its ups and downs and emotional tugs because Dominic has never had anybody to talk to about little Ivy’s premature death to Cancer. Well, other than with his mysterious cyber friend.. and his grief changed him into a man with a very short fuse. However, through some harsh words and tough love Dominic’s determination and character growth has him completely turning his life around and learning how to focus on moving forward with the woman he loves instead of looking back. The dual POV narration was good.

There’s No Crying in Football

The Lie by Karla Sorensen is funny, steamy, and has a whole lot of heart! It’s a bad boy football story with 50 yards of heart!

Dominic Walker is the NFL’s bad boy whose reputation follows him to his new home in Washington. Now he has to adapt his game to earn his place on the Wolves. Faith Pierson is riding the line between making her mark and upholding family tradition. He’s angry at the world and she’s been burned by love. When a seemingly unlikely friendship blossoms, it might be just what they each need to break out of their rut.

The Lie is You’ve Got Mail meets hot pro football romance! It is packed with humor, wit, steamy hookups and just the right amount of snark. Karla went right for the squishy underbelly with this book. I was a blubbery pile of goo for the last 25% of it. The Lie hit home for me in a few ways and I loved every minute of this audiobook! Grab the tissues, and huddle up for an emotional love story!

“Live in the tension”

Dominic Walker is going to be your new favorite Alpharoll! He barreled his way into my top five in the first chapter. Faith is sweet, kind, and fiercely devoted to her family and friends. As she struggle to find her footing in a new leadership roll, she also learns how to open her heart again after being burned by love.

Lance Greenfield and Stella Hunter are absolute perfection in the booth for this audiobook! Lance’s performance is a perfect blend of sultry growl and sweet romance. Stella Hunter gives a wonderful performance as Faith. I really enjoyed her male voice for Dominic as well. Stella’s characterization for nick was outstanding. She kept it her own while nicely complimenting how Lance worked the character in his chapters. Stella & Lance are a terrific narrating team!

Worth the wait

I have been patiently waiting for another book in the Washington Wolves world and I was not disappointed. A romance about family and friendship and loss and forgiveness.

Lance Greenfield did a wonderful job. The female narrator was new to me. She was pretty good.

The Game Changer!

4.5 ✨
“𝘐𝘵 𝘰𝘯𝘭𝘺 𝘵𝘢𝘬𝘦𝘴 𝘰𝘯𝘦 𝘱𝘦𝘳𝘴𝘰𝘯. 𝘑𝘶𝘴𝘵 𝘰𝘯𝘦 𝘱𝘦𝘳𝘴𝘰𝘯 𝘸𝘩𝘰 𝘮𝘢𝘬𝘦𝘴 𝘺𝘰𝘶 𝘸𝘢𝘯𝘵 𝘵𝘰 𝘳𝘪𝘴𝘬 𝘴𝘰𝘮𝘦𝘵𝘩𝘪𝘯𝘨 𝘣𝘪𝘨, 𝘴𝘪𝘮𝘱𝘭𝘺 𝘧𝘰𝘳 𝘢 𝘤𝘩𝘢𝘯𝘤𝘦 𝘸𝘪𝘵𝘩 𝘵𝘩𝘦𝘮.”

From the moment Karl’s Sorensen promised me the second gen Wolves story I had no chill and the excitement was real.
Who better to kick it off than the girl who’s dad started it all? Little Faith Pierson is back and all grown up! We had broody Dominic with the bad boy rep and hello my type. I had the heart eyes before I even started reading. One minute he a guy that you wanted to smack and the next he was stealing your heart with his sweetness. This man had a chip on his shoulder the size of Washington but who better to help him get himself together than little miss sunshine? Don’t let the sunny side fool you because my girl Faith had spunk and did not give in easy. Their story had it all; humor, heart, sexual tension on high and just enough emotion to put you in your feelings.
Stella Hunter and Lance Greenfield were amazing at bringing Dominic and Faith to life in the narration.

Go the Wolves!

I love what Sorensen does as well as the way her books flow and finish. I’m never disappointed when I read her books.
