I Hate You, an all-new enemies to lovers sports romance from Wall Street Journal bestselling author Ilsa Madden-Mills, is available now!

Aundi’s Musings…

 5 OMG Crowns

I have been a fan of Ilsa’s since I first read Very Bad Things. I love the depth with which she writes her character’s mixed with undeniable humor. And this story is no different. I loved everything about Blaze and Charisma especially their witty banter that was prevalent throughout. This story hit’s you in the feels and takes you on a swoon inducing ride. If you like enemies to lovers/second chance romance look no further.

Forget facing him. I’d rather touch a hundred wolf spiders on my pillow while having a root canal with no anesthesia than see him with Dani.

I freaking adore Blaze his intensity and humor all come wrapped in a glorious piece of Alpha Male. Ilsa wrote him so completely relatable, his faults will endear you to him, he’s not perfect and doesn’t claim or try to be. Watching him throughout the story try to overcome what he’s been preconditioned to believe will absolutely tug on your heart strings. I fell for him hard and fast, but I have always had a soft spot for damaged hero’s trying to be better.

The artist side of me was always drawn to the colors I saw when he spoke, shades of gold and gray, one side of him sunny and easy, the other part was wrapped in fog and smoke.

Charisma is fantastically funny with all her acronyms for almost everything. She’s a tough character she is hard on the outside, having built up walls so she wouldn’t get hurt. But you know she just needs to let her guard down so that she can fully give herself. She has these rules that she implemented so she wouldn’t get hurt and all it managed to do was to hurt Blaze and their potential. 

He’s everything. He’s everything I never knew I wanted. He’s perfection wrapped in a dark, deep lake, and I ache to swim in those waters, to discover his secrets and let him delve into mine. 

The build up between these two was angsty deliciousness. Watching as they both grow and mature together and then find what they’d always been looking for in each other soothed my needy heart. I could not get enough of these two. Ilsa wrote them so well you feel what they feel. The ache, longing and self-destruction is so real your heart and emotions will be all over the place, wanting to hug them one minute and then shake some sense into them the next. I highly recommend this book, Ilsa is the Queen of College Sports Romance and she most definitely scored with this one!!!

Received this as an ARC for an honest review.



Blaze TownsendI hate you.

Charisma RossiI hate you more.

She’s been expecting this ever since their latest showdown. She had good reason.

Hottest guy she’s ever seen.

Former fling.

Dumped her in front of her friends.

At her own party.

So no, she’s not about to forgive and forget just because he sits next to her in class.

He thinks all he has to do is turn on those baby blues, and she’ll melt right back into his arms. Please.She’d be crazy to let this cocky player affect her again. (Tell that to her body.)

Charisma Rossi.

Nerd girl with a dash of bad.

The one who got under his skin.

The one he cut loose.

Blaze knows she’s the riskiest prospect at Waylon University, but none of the interchangeable girls he hooks up with have ever made him feel the way she did. There’s absolutely no way he can have the girl and the game.

So why can’t he stop trying to win her back?

Can this wide receiver score the girl or will he make the biggest fumble of his life
