“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?

Delightfully Addictive, Sweet, Sexy and Heartwarming 


This book is absolutely delightful, swoony and sexy! I loved EVERYTHING about it and finished within hours.

I fell in love with sports romance last year and ever since then, I’ve been utterly addicted to them. This book had all the FEELS I could ever want and more! I’ve never read anything by Ilsa Madden-Mills, but after this delicious and heartwarming story, that is definitely going to change.

The writing style is engaging with the perfect blend of drama, swoons, steam, a little sadness, and plenty of heart and humor that had me completely smitten the entire time. I enjoyed Sugar and Z (Zack) and their chemistry is absolutely adorable and sexy. I loved all their interactions, their bantering, and all the emotional and touching moments.

Sugar and Z are both such loveable, wonderful, and intriguing characters. They stole a piece of my heart and I just really loved the both of them. I also really liked that Z has this vulnerability due to his anxiety. It was really interesting how his mental illness played into his character and the story. Sugar is just so darn adorable, quirky, sweet, and funny. There really isn’t anything I don’t admire and love about her. I rooted hard for these two and I could not get enough of them. I think they’re quite a charming couple and deserved all the happiness.

Boyfriend Bargain by Ilsa Madden-Mills was a captivating and addictive sports romance story that’s surely going on my favorite list.  I loved every moment I spent with Sugar and Z and swooned so much. Fake relationships turned into something more are always entertaining, hilarious, and just so much fun. This book amazingly does that and also beautifully mixes wonderful drama, heartbreak, and plenty of achingly lovely emotions. I LOVED this book so much and I’m really excited to read more books by Madden-Mills.

If you’re looking for an enjoyable, sweet, and touching sports romance with a fake relationship trope that will make you laugh, swoon, and melt your heart, then you need to READ this book NOW!

I received an advance reader copy of this book from the publisher via Social Butterfly in exchange for a fair and honest review. All thoughts and opinions are my own.



“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.”
