If you’ve ever seen your teenage crush ten years later, and he turns out to be a complete jerk, then you know how Molly Ward feels. 
 
The last time she saw Noah Griffin was the regrettable day that she decided to climb into his bedroom window and turn her unrequited crush into something more. 
 
That day was bad enough, but things are about to get worse. 
 
Noah has become one of the best football players in the country, and he’s just landed on Molly’s front step. 
 
As a new addition to the Washington Wolves roster, Noah’s presence is the key to Molly’s promotion in the front office. 
 
The problem is, Noah wants nothing to do with Molly, and his surly attitude is making her job very difficult. 
 
But he’s got another thing coming if he thinks Molly will be intimidated by one grumpy football player, no matter how much he hates being around her. 
 
Once these two go head to head, their mutual dislike explodes into undeniable chemistry. But with what they have at stake, they just might detonate everything else along with it.

               My Review

I feel like I waited an awful long time for this book. I read predominantly Hockey romance. I.do enjoy football books but I don’t seem to get quite as hooked. Then someone suggested Karla Sorenson’s Washington Wolves series and I was enthralled. I binge read the whole series and then waited extremely impatiently for Focussed. I fell in love with Molly all over again and I think she is the most fantastic of characters. She is strong and bold but also feminine and vulnerable. She made her choices with conviction and evem though she knew there could be harsh consequences she went after what she wanted. She was feisty and yet protective of Noah.. She was adamant about not putting him in a bad position and also that he was only portrayed in the best possible light. Little did she know that it was her that brought that out in him! Noah was fantastic. He tried with everything to fight what he felt but Molly was just too all consuming. How he loved her and handled her was just a joy to read.
Several times I shouted ‘no don’t do it ‘ or had a knot of anxiety when I could just see it coming. Like car crash reading. You knew there was going to be an impact nut couldn’t turn yourself away..

The sisters were at always fantastic, just a little more grown and I am beyond excited to see where their stories take me

 

Michelle Claypot_reads “All the stars in the world for this! What a way to kick off my reading for 2020!! Oh my heart! This was absolute perfection.”

 

The Overflowing Bookcase “A wonderful novel that will become one I will re-read time and time again.”

 

PP’s Bookshelf “I just love when authors make me feel every single confusing, infuriating, breathtaking and heartbreaking feeling right in my heart. And Karla Sorensen did exactly that in Focused.”

 

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.
