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?

Not My Romeo was another entertaining read by Ilsa Madden-Mills, where she introduced us to Elena and Jack. How they first met was quite amusing as Elena thought Jack was her blind date for the night, and Jack failed to correct her. Despite the poor date, it soon became apparent that they had a bit of chemistry, and were quite saucy together!

Jack was a complicated kind of guy, and found it hard to trust people because they tend to use him for their own gain. He was a private person and even though he was quite famous he tend to keep to himself. After meeting Elena, he became quite infatuated with her, and showed a softer side which made he all the more perfect.

Elena was a kind and beautiful soul, who did a lot for those she cared about. She helped out in her home town, and despite being let down by those who were close to her, managed to hold her head high. She found it a bit hard to trust Jack, but I could see her quickly falling for him.

It was cute seeing the changes in both these characters, the more time they spent together. I liked the way the world was built, and not only how the main characters interacted through this read, but the effect the secondary characters had on Jack and Elena too. Ilsa Madden-Mills did a fantastic job with the first book in this series, and I cannot wait to see more of the football side characters in future reads in this series!

I just loved reading about Jack, he sure knows how to get a girl worked up!! 

“Elena,” he says softly, as if tasting my name on his lips, dragging out the three syllables. His voice is low and husky, like an exotic silk, deep and rich with colors of gold and navy, gliding through my hands. “Let’s just say I know how to satisfy a woman, to have her crave me every moment we’re apart.”
I volunteer as tribute.
I suck in a deep breath.

I inhale a deep breath, my fists curling at my sides. “Weatherman, where are my panties?”
