Summary

Have you ever fake dated your bodyguard? I don't recommend it.

Especially if he's anything like Erik Wilder: Former football player, world class know-it-all and unapologetic grump.

To be clear, I didn't want a bodyguard (hence the fake dating idea). Most days, I can’t figure out why he wants the job either. We drive each other insane, probably because we’re as opposite as two people can be.

He’s suspicious, never talks about his past and has the comfort skills of a cactus. I’m a happily-ever-after kind of girl who knows exactly what she wants out of life.

Erik’s words might say that the lines have to stay firm between us, but those dark eyes of his? They tell another story when he looks at me.

He’s just as stubborn as I am, but when our fake dating plan starts to feel a lot more real, it's only a matter of time before his professional walls come crashing down.

I just have to hope my heart doesn't get buried in the rubble.

Loved it!

I dove straight into The Plan after finishing The Lie and once again Karla Sorensen has written a sweet love story with complicated characters who struggle to find love with their past haunting their steps. I loved every minute of this audiobook. Teddy Hamilton and Stella Hunter gave so much to their performances that you feel the character’s emotions deep within. While Lydia is struggling more with the repercussions of her car accident, Erik has pain hidden much deeper behind his walls.

Lydia is struggling to find her way back to a normal life after a photog runs her off the road. She won’t go out, and is losing endorsement deals as she fails to make appearances. Her parents push an unlikely bodyguard on her in the hopes that with Erik, a former Wolves football player, by her side, she will let go of her fear. They butt heads immediately, but as the days and weeks pass, they become friends and the walls start to come down. Will they give into each other or run away to keep their secrets hidden?

Lydia’s ability to see beyond Erik’s gruffness and to look him in the eye when things are tough was my favorite part of this story. He needed someone who wasn’t afraid of him and didn’t let him push them around. When they go back to his family’s home, that’s when things really got interesting and we found out the depths of Erik’s sad story. I loved the family intervention. While this book tackles some angst, it also has many smile worthy moments to balance things out. You won’t be able to help cheering Lydia on as she shows Erik up during flag football. I really enjoyed both of these books and look forward to reading more in Karla Sorensen’s backlist soon!

Lame

So ridiculous. Not a a bit of this was believable. I know romance is a fantasy but this was silly. And please the reason that he gave up football and love was such a joke it was irritating. But the narrators were great. That’s the only reason it wasn’t a one star.

A great addition!

I love the Washington Wolves. It is such a comfort series, and I’m so glad Karla is still writing in this world. I really enjoyed this book and think it’s a great addition to a series that has my whole heart. The bond between Faith and Lydia, the amazingness of Luke and Allie as parents, glimpses of other longtime faves, the chemistry between Lydia and Erik, and his huge crazy family were all delightful. I will say this book felt pretty different from The Lie in terms of pacing and speed & progression of the relationship, which I did struggle with somewhat, but The Plan is still definitely a solid 4-star read for me!

Lovely story

I love the Seattle background. No questionable facts other than it’s a 5 1/2 drive from Seattle to Sisters.

**1 OF THE BEST **

This has to be 1 of THE BEST books I’ve ever listened to. I’m so addicted to audible n have over 600 books in 3 yrs n this is in my top 3… I like the college/sports genre but this is also a great suspense!!! It’s completely different n a nonstop listen!!!
