Madden-Mills - Not My Romeo - 29324 -CV-FT-V

We start off with a lie on Valentine’s Day.

My blind date isn’t the studious guy I expected: he’s a drop-dead gorgeous player with sinful amber eyes. Somehow we end up at his penthouse. I blame the gin and tonic.

The next day I learn he’s Jack Hawke—bad-boy professional quarterback with a murky past. The NDA he has me sign should be a warning that he isn’t a regular person. Please. I sign it Juliet Capulet, so goodbye, famous football player with abs of steel, and good luck tracking down this small-town librarian.

But Jack keeps showing up in places I least expect him. Just when I’m sure he’s gone, he waltzes into my community theater and wins the part of Romeo to my Juliet. How’s a plain, mostly innocent girl like me supposed to resist a man like him?

Is Jack my real Romeo…or will this gorgeous football player only break my heart?

Sunny Shelly’s Review: 4 Stars

Not My Romeo is a cute kick-off to a new series by Ilsa Madden-Mills.

A Valentine’s Day blind date leads to a mistaken identity meet-cute between librarian Elena and sexy football star Jack. He’s in the midst of a scandal, and she is looking to put the fact that her ex is dating her sister. The “blind date” leads to an amazing one night stand that neither of them are able to forget after the fact. They keep running into each other — first at a hot club, then in her small Tennessee hometown church. She had no idea who he was the night they met, and Jack loved that he met a woman who saw him for him — not the millions of his contract. A one night stand leads to a two night stand, and the attraction between them is sizzling hot. And when Jack does a community service of sorts by playing Romeo to Elena’s Juliet in her community center’s production of the play, she finds that there is so much more to the sports star than she ever expected.

But Jack has some major trust issues due to his ex-girlfriend, and he seems to always be holding back a piece of himself. And when he misreads a situation and blows things out of proportion, will it be too late when he realizes that he’s holding his past history against his and Elena’s present and future?

This book was a cute, quirky romance with a lot of heart and a lot of heat. There are some rather interesting side characters — hello, Topher! — and a potbellied pig named Romeo. I am excited to see what comes next in this series!

I received an advanced copy and voluntarily left a review.
