“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?
Oh my God, this book was PHENOMENAL!! This is why I love Ilsa’s books so much! Suspense, drama, angst, electrifying chemistry between main characters and so many emotions that during reading you forget how to adult. Boyfriend Bargain sucked me in from the first page and I couldn’t put it down! I’m such a sucker for college romances and it’s like Ilsa Madden-Mills knows exactly what I need to get lost in a book. And she did it again in Boyfriend Bargain. She made me completely hooked!
Blurb shows nicely what can we expect in this story. But this is just the tip of the iceberg. This story has so many layers, such depth that it can’t be described in a few sentences. Sugar is a student who wants to get into her chosen university and become a lawyer. Zack is a hockey star who’s expected to be drafted to NHL after the final year of college. The relationship between Zack and Sugar didn’t start in a conventional way. The girl needs him to achieve her goal, which she chosen based on her family’s situation. Although physical attraction and amazing chemistry couldn’t stop their hands from wandering. But after the disappointment of her last relationship, Sugar wants to protect her heart- especially from sexy Z, who has a ‚heartbreak’ written on his forehead. Will she manage to keep her heart in check, when Z is determined to get Sugar in every possible way? And how will Z deal with his demons? As it turns out, not only Sugar carries the burden of the past. But Zack’s secret can quickly destroy what already blossomed between them.
My heart is so full of Z! He’s such a complicated man. On the one hand he oozes confidence and he’s cocky, but on the inside he’s really sweet. I couldn’t stand his internal fight with a guilt that kept him in its grip all the time. His mental struggle made him real. Despite his great plans and status, Zack simply wants to live his own life. Although there were moments of interaction with Sugar that irritated me and I would be happy to smack him in the head to make him wake up, I must admit that the moments of strange behavior had their ground. And Sugar is a real BFF material! She’s smart, stubborn and so adorably introverted! I admire her for her strength and drive, and for not taking the easy way when the opportunity appeared. She’s faithful to her beliefs and determined to achieve her goals on her own. Together, these two were a real perfection. Their relationship, though turbulent and intense, was also swoony and so delicious! The intimacy between them was incredibly hot! I couldn’t get enough of their sexy times! *fanning myself*
Ilsa Madden-Mills wrote college-sports PERFECTION. Boyfriend Bargain is emotional, steamy and captivating. The plot is addictive, characters are wonderful and there wasn’t a moment when I got bored. To recommend this book is not enough.
I’m marking this story as a MUST READ!

“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.”
