-- Melanie Harlow, USA Today bestselling author 

Boyfriend Bargain, an all-new sexy and emotional sports romance from Wall Street Journal bestselling author Ilsa Madden-Mills, is available now!


Wanted: one hot guy with rock-hard abs and a big stick

Broke and desperate, Sugar Ryan has no use for arrogant, bad boy athletes . . . until she’s forced to bargain with the cockiest of them all.

If only he knew she was alive. 

Her mission? Get on this hockey player’s radar any way possible.

Zack Morgan is the king of the ice and the bedroom—but nothing prepares him for the mystery girl who shows up everywhere he does—frat parties, his favorite bar, and finally his front door with an offer he can’t refuse. The only rule in her boyfriend bargain: no falling in love.

But after one (um, two) smoking-hot hookups, he’s done with pretending and vows to make their fake relationship real. Too bad she can’t trust a player with a reputation for breaking hearts.

Will this hockey star score his forever girl or will their Boyfriend Bargain end in heartbreak?

“We should kiss, just get it out of the way and move on," I say, sure of the crazy idea as each second passes.
There’s a hitch in Z’s breath, and his eyes go straight to my lips. “Works for me.”
“But just one. None of that fancy tongue work.”
“Afraid of falling in love with me?” He grins.
Well. My eyes take in the broad shoulders and the dragon tattoo on his muscled chest. He’s definitely my type: pure, grade A male hotness—exactly what I don’t need. “I won't fall in love.”
Another grin. “Liar.”


5 stars I do love a good college sports romance and this author never fails to craft a fun story with the right mix of seriousness and humor with likable characters. 

Sugar is a hard worker trying go get into law school and believes she needs a boyfriend to achieve that goal - more specifically she needs, Zach “Z” Morgan.  She was burned in the past by a cheating boyfriend and she has no desire to have a “real” romance with this playboy hockey star. Sugar is one of those characters that is easy to relate to and the type of girl that I would have loved to had as a friend and even as a college roommate.  I adored Zach - he is kind hearted, but he also has secrets.  The author did such a great job describing Zach’s mindset that I felt like I was actually there experiencing those emotions.  That is one of the things that I love about this author - she always has characters that are not only likable, but also ones that have hidden depths and are easy to relate to.  

I want to give a shout out to Zach’s fellow hockey teammate and best friend, Eric.  He is hilarious and a good friend and I am really hoping that he gets his own book.  I also liked the other secondary characters of Julia and Reece.  I am dying to discover Julia’s story and Reece seems so broken. So basically I am saying that I loved the secondary characters as much as Sugar and Zach and I hope that the author writes more books featuring them!

Boyfriend Bargain is a fake relationship romance and so it is a bit predictable in that we all know that the hero and heroine will develop real feelings towards each other.  Nonetheless, I love watching the evolution of Sugar and Zach’s relationship.  I received this as an advanced manuscript and I voluntarily leave this review.
