Release Date: August 18, 2020
SYNOPSIS: 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?
REVIEW: This one was so good. Ilsa Madden-Mills has definitely become an auto buy author for me. Her romances always grip me from start to finish, and this one was one of the best. And boy, do I love a tortured hero. Jack’s childhood and relationship experiences are tragic and so very impactful. You see it play out in all of his actions. Something I really enjoy about this book, is how vulnerable Jack got on multiple levels. He may have money from being a professional football player, but he has lots of issues he’s dealing with. It just made him very human. Elena is just what Jack needs! She’s got her own issues she’s dealing with, but man does she have a heart of gold. She is sweet as pie and I loved that about her. I loved how she handled all of the situations that came at her. Plus, her family (plus Topher) are an awesome support system. I loved not only seeing Elena and Jack grow, but their relationships with other grow over the story too. I definitely loved this one!
