Blog Tour: Not My Match by Ilsa Madden-Mills
“Rife with uproarious moments and banter that sings, this scorching contemporary will captivate Madden-Mills’s fans.” —Publishers Weekly
Not My Match, an all-new slow burn friends-to-lovers sports romance from Wall Street Journal bestselling author Ilsa Madden-Mills is available now!
Wall Street Journal bestselling author Ilsa Madden-Mills delivers a smart and sexy romance about a professional football hottie and the girl he’s sworn to never touch.
Homeless and heartbreakingly innocent, Giselle Riley walks into my penthouse and chaos follows. I shouldn’t have invited the girl genius to live with me, but it’s clear she needs my help—not only for a place to lay her pretty blonde head but in finding real love, which she’s not going to get with the crazy men she picks up online. Too bad she’s a twenty-four-year-old virgin and I’m a bad boy wide receiver. She’s off-limits for a hardcore player like me—and we’re just friends. Instead, I’m her matchmaking service, no matter how jealous it makes me when I tag along on her dates. I can keep my self-control. Right? No way will I give in to everything inside me that dreams of a girl like her in my world. I may be the best wide receiver in the country, but how could I hold on to a girl like her?
Sandy’s 4.5 Blush Review
Giselle Riley – is brain smart but boy her common sense smarts, are off by a mile. Not to mention her instincts. Everything is going downhill fast and then it literally all goes up in smoke. Don’t worry! Devon Walsh to the rescue.
Devon Walsh – a sexy, sweet, successful football player who’s been burned so no entanglements is the name of the game. Until his best friend’s new sister in law “drops” into his life.
Did you guys read Not Your Romeo? I was NOT a Giselle fan. As a matter of fact, I wanted to slap her a few times for her past actions. I really wanted to keep hating her, but I couldn’t. Ilsa made me like her dammit! She is funny and nerdy and a virgin who is looking to take care of that little issue ASAP. Unfortunately, for her, the dating disasters are piling up. At this point in the story, I felt it was just desserts, but I soon warmed to her.
Devon has been told that Giselle is off-limits. So how is he supposed to stop thinking about her and all the things he’d like to do to her? How? Well, by offering her his home after a fire at her place. But wait! There’s more. He’s also going to be her wingman on future dates because he’s her friend.
These two are clueless! How could they be oblivious to the electricity between them? Simple. Both are carrying the burden of their past and the internal warning bells that are screaming “Danger, Danger Will Robinson”. Sorry. Back to the story at hand. They do become friends and are helpless to the slow burn bubbling between them. Despite their good intentions, keeping their hands off each other proves impossible.
Little by little, they each start to trust each other. They start to open up to each other. Still, that slow burn is ever-present – sometimes a little too slow burn for me. Thrown in some sizzling hot kisses and now I’m rooting for them.
Ilsa Madden-Mills is a gifted writer. This hit the sweet spot for me. Sexy, angsty with a hit of drama. I smiled, I giggled, I was angry and then happy and once it was all said and done, Not My Match is another winner in my humble opinion.
