Review: The Lie by Karla Sorenson

Karla Sorenson New Release The Lie

Rule number 1 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.


This book was a breath of fresh air because everything about these characters and their story made sense. They had legit reasons for their emotional baggage and didn’t overreact, they reacted like normal people, not characters in a book. Dominic Walker is abrasive and impossible to like at first, but quickly graduated to book boyfriend status. I love Faith because she was strong and independent but not afraid to admit that she still wanted him even when she was mad and disappointed and didn’t want to want him. Their backstory is sweet and their chemistry is off the charts so this book had everything I wanted, including a good supporting cast. I enjoyed Faith and Dominic’s story so much I didn’t want it to end but the ending was so good, I couldn’t be bummed it was over. This is also the first book in a new series so I’m looking forward to Lydia’s story next.
