“Who can turn down a sexy hockey star with a big . . . stick? Zack is hot hot hot, and Sugar is the perfect blend of sweet and sassy! Their chemistry sizzles in Boyfriend Bargain!”

— 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?


I have the Kindle Unlimited program to thank again and again for introducing me to some crazy good authors that I have just absolutely fallen head over heels in love with and Ilsa is one of those authors.  I stumbled upon her a year or so ago, and I have been absolutely in love with her writing since.  She writes some of the best sports romances I’ve even read.  And Boyfriend Bargain was so exception (and this cover was just so hot!!).

Boyfriend Bargain features one of my new favorite trope, the fake boyfriend.  I love the idea of two people entering into a relationship with terms and an end date, knowing that in the end, it’s going to completely throw them for a loop and rather than shaking hands and going their separate ways, they’ll fall hopelessly and completely in love.  Sugar needs Z to help her to get into law school, while Z needs Sugar to keep away the skirt chasing hockey bunnies, so it’s a win win situation for them both.  What they don’t expect to find is the almost instantaneous chemistry between the two of them, and how it continues to grow and help them to heal from old wounds.

ONe thing that I have always loved about Ilsa, is her strong heroines.  Sugar was born and raised on the wrong side of the tracks, and has clawed her way to the top through her own blood, sweat, and tears. She has an agenda, and she’s not letting anything hold her back, so when she’s waitlisted for Vanderbilt law school, she comes up with the perfect scheme to help her get in.  Z, on the other hand, is the perfect ying to her yang, and is honestly one of my new favorite romance heroes.  The star of the hockey team, he’s recently been faced with a new normal, and is haunted by the guilt of his past.  Sugar is the perfect person to help to bring him to peace with the past, and to give him a strong foundation to move forward.

If you love good, strong sports romances, than Boyfriend Bargain is definitely for you.  And if you haven’t read anything yet by Ilsa Madden Mills, do not hesitate to pick this one up for a few hours of entertainment!!

5 Stars!!

“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.”
