“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?

She’s everything.
She’s Mine.
She’s a symbol of me getting life right.
My Love, my hope. Always.




If you love sports romances about sinfully sexy and cocky as hell hockey players as much as I do, then BOYFRIEND BARGAIN by Ilsa Madden-Mills is right up your alley. Zack Morgan is the captain of his university’s hockey team and all-around big man on campus. He’s got a lengthy list of coeds looking to warm his bed but no one has been able to steal his heart. He’s plagued by some serious guilt over a tragic accident from a few years back and it’s bleeding into his everyday life and affecting his game.

Sugar Ryan, didn’t grow up with a silver spoon in her mouth like the rest of the kids who go to her university. She’s had to work her butt off to pay for her tuition and has her sights on attending Vanderbilt Law School after graduation. Sugar is on the wait list and thinks that with a little help from the biggest player on the hockey team, that she might be able to finagle an acceptance letter. The only obstacle is that she and Zack don’t run in the same social circles, but she’s determined to get his help.

They meet at a frat party and soon enough sparks are flying. These two have crazy chemistry. You feel it from the moment they find themselves within a few feet of each other. Sugar asks Zack to be her fake boyfriend for a while just so that she can impress Vanderbilt’s Dean of Admissions, but she’s not fooling anyone but herself. Zack and Sugar are 100% into each other and you feel it from the very beginning.




Zack is the epitome of a book boyfriend readers fall head over heels in love with. He’s funny, alpha, gorgeous, and just a bit broken. When he falls in love with a woman, there’s nothing he wouldn’t do to win her heart. I think he just might be my favorite of all of Ilsa Madden-Mill’s Heroes. Sugar is a strong Heroine with an endearing sweetness to her as well. She is a challenge for Zack, who is used to women falling at his feet. I loved these characters and found their story to be truly addictive.

Here are my overall ratings:

Heroes: 5
Heroine: 4.5
Plot: 5
Angst: 5
Steam: 5
Chemistry Between Hero & Heroine: 5+++++
