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?

Review by Kelly:

Boyfriend Bargain by Ilsa Madden-Mills

Ilsa does it again with this college sports romance. So many feels from this story. We get beautifully flawed characters with almost instant heat and sparks, pasts that haunt each step they take, and fear of feeling too much. 

Z is in his last year of college and is ready to take the NHL by storm. He comes across as the hot, cocky, bad boy Ice King to everyone he meets. Inside, he’s a mess. The past has wrapped itself around his throat and the noose tightens more every day. He’s not sure if he’s going to make it. Can he keep the pressures at bay or will he fall apart and lose it all?

Sugar wasn’t blessed with a perfect family growing up. She struggled every day. She’s in her last year at HSU and what she wants more than anything is to get into Vandy. Law school was always the plan but she’s been rejected and told maybe in the future. She needs a way to get in. To show those who have judged her and looked down upon her that she’s made it. She’s more than they ever could have dreamed she would be. 

She needs him. He could be her ticket to making her dreams come true. He needs her, to keep others at bay so he can focus on his future. They don’t realize that their fake plan will become more than either ever imagined. She understands what he needs and she’s does it. He gets her quirks and supports her like no one else has. Together they step into murky waters and get wrapped up in each other. 

Truths of the past come to light and a downward spiral begins. Old hurts become new and trust doesn’t extend very far. Happiness is driven away and heartache surrounds them both. A decision to fight for one another, to extend  understanding to ghosts of the past and to truly open their hearts is the only way they will survive this heartache. 

I can’t say enough about Ilsa and her understanding of creating characters that are perfectly flawed together. She has a fantastic capability of creating a story that draws us in so much that we can feel the ups and downs and the road that the characters must travel. It’s wonderful and it’s a phenomenal ride!


“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.”
