Publisher's Summary

Now a Top 8 Amazon Best Seller
Number One Sports Romance
Number One New Adult and College Romance

Wall Street Journal best-selling author Ilsa Madden-Mills returns with an all-new swoon-fest of a novel about what happens when you take a chance on love.

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 this boyfriend bargain end in heartbreak?

♥️♥️♥️♥️♥️I need 10 cups of coffee and a whole lotta Jesus!

This was my first book by this author and I fell in love with her writing and her characters! Sugar and Z are so lovable and as an Alabama girl myself I thought Savannah nailed the Southern accent. Great story, great angsts with all the feels! I listened to it twice in a row. Super sexy! Great love story and sports romance with excellent performances. Don’t miss this one.

Drama over bullshit

Childish and boring. Make narrator is so dramatic it’s almost funny. If you are over 15 years old don’t wast your credit

different kinda hero

I enjoyed the story of Zack and Sugar. It's refreshing to see a hero like Zack, as he is not your typical "Alpha" type. I feel like the two really progressed and there was good character development. Savannah is a new to me narrator and I am a fan of Stephen, so this was an enjoyable listen.

Back story didn’t come full circle

There is a back story about her father that really didn’t fit the story line. Other than that it was a entertaining listen.

Great book!

Steven Dexter did a phenomenal job in narrating with so much emotion. I was in awe of his performance. Savannah also did a great job. Different story than what I usually listen do, but did enjoy it.

Basic.

Overall the story was entertaining.

While the fake boyfriend proposal was amusing, it was way too far fetched and didn’t really provide the stakes intended.

The female protagonist was also extremely immature and annoying. She initiated this entire scenario then acts like a chicken s@$! brat when she gets what she wants. The whole story felt like drama for the sake of drama.

Finally the narration was mediocre. The male narrator was at times far too dramatic, but I did enjoy his voice. The female narrator was way too whiney and probably contributed to my loathing of the female protagonist. Her accent was inconsistent, and she sounded weak and came off as a coward. I found myself cringing through her chapters.

The Narration was EXCELLENT!

This audio book was EXCEPTIONAL. Truly, one of the best that I have listened to.
Stephen Dexter just nailed it. He made "Z" come to life.
Savannah Peachwood was brilliant as Sugar.

For the story. I just adored these two characters. They come from similar, yet different backgrounds.
I thought their chemistry was dynamite. A lot of times, in college stories with athletes, they have everything going for them and things come easy to them. That wasn't the case in Zach's life and it made the story that much more compelling.

The only problem that I may have had was that they story was so much more than the title implies.

Loved this!

This was a great read! The story is fun and well paced. I liked both Zach and Sugar, they both had their own pasts and baggage and there was a time or two when they were being dumb and just needed to talk, but they fit so well together. The dialogue was cute and I really enjoyed seeing Zach be emotional and not a tough guy all the time. And the smut was great, especially the audiobook. Awesome narrators made the story even better. I am so looking forward to the next book!

Just...wow!!!

This book is just outstanding! Ilsa is becoming one of my favorites. Also, Stephen Dexter does the story so much justice as a narrator! Whew! I need more of him reading to me through my workday! Or not because he made the sex scenes so much steamier and I was too distracted to work.
