Review: Not My Romeo by Isla Madden-Mills


(The Game Changers #1)

Ilsa Madden-Mills


An Amazon Charts bestseller.

Wall Street Journal bestselling author Ilsa Madden-Mills delivers a smart and sexy contemporary romance about a smoking-hot professional football player and the small-town girl he can’t resist.

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?


I’m a new reader of Ilsa Madden-Mills books. I really enjoyed this book.

The story grabbed me from the start. A blind date that has gone array. Elena is set up on a blind date and when she arrives at the restaurant she finds a guy wearing the shirt color her blind date is supposed to be wearing and assumes it’s him. Jack is enjoying a quiet evening out at a restaurant away from fans. He’s a professional football player and has been making the news lately and not for the good stuff.

Elena joining Jack at his table and being offended he was eating dinner without waiting for her to arrive was fun because the reader knows Elena is on the wrong date. From that unexpected blind date, their world keeps colliding. And slowly they grow a relationship that has some ups and downs.

I look forward to reading more books by Ms. Madden-Mills.
