“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?

“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.”
Sunny Shelly’s Review: 4 Stars
The Boyfriend Bargain is a swoony, angst-filled college hockey romance. Zack is the campus hockey god, who goes through a girl a month, headed to Nashville to play with the pros. Sugar needs a pretend beau to make her look better in the eyes of Vanderbilt Law School, and decides Z is the guy. The two decide to make a bargain: He’ll pose as her boyfriend, but she needs to be his girl of the month, so he can focus on hockey and not the jersey chasers who want his attention. Even though their romance has an end date, feelings develop, and things get all kinds of complicated.
Zack has a major secret. It torments him, and he struggles with the guilt every day. My heart broke for Zack. He’s so guilt-stricken, and can’t move past the actions of his past. That played nicely against Sugar’s feelings of never being enough, stemming from her wealthy father abandoning her. And once she finds out what Z’s secret is, their relationship implodes.
As good as I thought this story was, I found Z’s secret to be rather creepy. He should have told her earlier! Obviously they work things out, because the book ends with a romantic HEA epilogue. But his lie of omission kept me from really loving this as a 5-Star read.
I received an advanced copy and voluntarily left a review.
