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.
Studying abroad 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 epically sexy argument about which type of football is superior.
In Jude's mind, shagging the feisty American girl is exactly what he needs. He’s been fighting the clock of his long-standing football career and the younger players primed to take his position. Proving that he can feel like his old self again—something he's been trying to do with everyone in his life—should be easier after blowing off steam with Lia.
But oh baby, when a plus sign pops up on Lia's pregnancy test, that 'one night' becomes a whole lot more.
Now Lia and Jude have to navigate their impossible-to-ignore chemistry, and prepare for the parenting game, something neither of them know how to play.
4.5 Heart Review by Ashley
Things I love. The Wards. Soccer (like a HUGE fan of the game). Accents. So when I saw Karla Sorensen was giving me all of them, I knew I was doing to devour Floored. And I was right.
I loved the first meeting between Lia and Jude. It was witty, playful and laden with innuendo. And HOT!! They certainly got more than they were bargaining for from that one night. But they also got something they weren't expecting, a friend. An ally. A partner to wade the new uncharted waters with.
For as much as they were both strong and brave, they both had a lot of work to do on themselves. As evidenced by the punch in the chest they both got with an unexpected and very unpleasant visit. BUT! It was the wake up call they needed to be able to move forward. That doesn't mean it was easy. Far from it. There was hard work to be done and Jude and Lia were up to the challenge.
Full of family and forgiveness, Jude and Lia's 'backwards' romance was warm and charming and I adored every moment of it. It was the small moments that Karla Sorensen crafted that gave me belly flutters galore. The text messages, the history Lia experienced, the sweat and grit on the pitch, the fruit names. The nerves and anticipation of parenthood. The sacrifices they were willing to make, which weren't really sacrifices at all. And that ending...oh my misty eyes! It was so perfectly sweet and left me with the biggest grin on my face.
About the Author
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.
