“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?

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Boyfriend Bargain is definitely a read to remember. This sports romance killed me. I honestly did not expect to cry reading this but I was turned into a sobbing mess. Everything set off the tear ducts. From the happy times to the heartache. And the was a considerable amount of heartache.

Sugar has dealt with so much pain in her young life. She is currently in a bind and the only person who can help her out is non other than the viking of a hockey player, Zack Morgan. Sugar has been low key stalker him and doesn’t know how to make her approach but Zack is very in tune to his surroundings and notices her. He makes his approach one night and one thing leads to another then Sugar pops up on his doorstep with a request that’s quite intriguing.

During their bargain, Zack plans on repeating their “encounter” over and over again. He can’t get Sugar out of his head and their sex is explosive. He never felt like this before. He never experienced this before even though he has been with quite a few number of woman. Everything between them is phenomenal but Both of them are still holding back. Sugar is terrified of being hurt and Zack has some major secrets he is keeping from her. Secrets that could destroy the good thing they have going on.

The one thing I didn’t like about this book is that I didn’t feel like Zack groveled enough. He obviously had his issues and I was upset of how he disregarded Sugar’s feelings and how he treated her after she found out what he has been keeping from her. I didn’t like his actions or in this case, lack thereof. I hurt so bad for her.

The side characters were a hoot. I especially love Eric. He brought many laughs to me. Although my feelings for Zack’s mess up is negative, I really enjoyed this book.

“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.”
