Aundi’s Musings…

5 Romeo Crowns

Ilsa Madden-Mills has without a doubt slayed this superbly written and utterly captivating Rom-Com. Jack and Elena are the epitome of opposites attract with unyielding chemistry and a connection that can’t be broken. I loved everything about this story from the moment I opened the pages until the very last sentence in this story.

Jack is low-key this sexy Alpha football star with a wall around his heart the size of a football field and rightly so. He’s been burned before not just by prior relationships but also with all the negative media attention he’s been receiving. So, when he first meets Elena he’s suspicious of her and what she really wants with him. I felt so much for Jack, it’s got to be so hard to not really trust anyone because you’re not entirely sure of their intentions with you. It has to be a truly lonely place to live and can make you very bitter and wary, which Jack is both. But being with Elena has slowly opened him up and the connection they share, he wants to be able to trust her and that in itself is a huge thing.

Elena is a beautifully pure soul. She is open and friendly with a huge heart. She has just been severely burned by her ex and is just recently getting back into the dating game when she comes across Jack. With him she feels more herself than she ever has with anyone else. She hides parts of herself from her family for fear of embarrassing them. They live in a small town that thrives on gossip and she doesn’t want to expose her family to that. I loved Elena her personality and desire to do what she’s passionate about even if she has to keep it a secret.

This book is completely Unputdownable, I devoured it cover to cover in one sitting. Ilsa has crafted a fervent and enthralling read that is sure to leave you with a smile on your face. The desire and connection between Elena and Jack were pure fire, consuming each page and every moment they are together. Ilsa has created another MUST READ for me. And I can already tell that this will be on my reread list for years to come. If you are looking for a smart, funny romance that will leave your heart and soul happy than this is for you.

Madden-Mills - Not My Romeo - 29324 -CV-FT-V


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?
