We start off with a lie on Valentine’s Day.
My blind date isn’t the studious guy I expected. Nope, he’s a drop-dead gorgeous player with sinful amber eyes and a killer body. 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 had me sign should have been a warning that he isn’t a regular person. Please. I signed 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?

Not My Romeo by Ilsa Madden-Mills is a lighthearted, feel-good, rom-com with a small-town feel! Told in dual POV, a blind date, mistaken identity, and a fated encounter is just the start of Not My Romeo.

Jack Hawke is an NFL quarterback with a tragic past who’s image isn’t as squeaky clean as his PR would like it after his recent ex wrote a tell-all book full of lies about him. He’s built his walls up sky high and doesn’t trust easily, but his connection with Elena just won’t leave him alone. Leave it to a sexy little small-town librarian to breach those walls! Gahhh I love this big ol’ teddy bear with a heart of gold! He’s an athlete but yet he’s super shy. What a contradiction right? Oh, and the man listens to POP! Lol, seriously Justin Beiber, Taylor Swift, just to name a few! LOL, When he danced and sang in front of Elena to take her mind off her scraped up knees… *sigh* I fell for him even more.

Elena Riley is a small-town librarian who’s also a closeted lingerie designer. I adore Elena!!! Seriously one of my favorite characters! She may look like a buttoned-up librarian but the girl has a sassy wild side! Plus, she has a pet pig that she designs little outfits for!!! What’s not to love about her?! #DLG #DaisyLadyGang
Of course, there’s a little drama, where Jack’s trust issues and miscommunication come into play but thankfully he pulls his head outta his butt real quick and realizes he’s about to miss out on the best thing that ever happened to him.
❝𝐴𝑟𝑒 𝑦𝑜𝑢 𝑔𝑜𝑖𝑛𝑔 𝑡𝑜 𝑏𝑟𝑒𝑎𝑘 𝑚𝑒?”
“𝑂𝑛𝑙𝑦 𝑖𝑛 𝑡ℎ𝑒 𝑏𝑒𝑠𝑡 𝑤𝑎𝑦, 𝑏𝑎𝑏𝑦.❞
The chemistry between these two is off the charts right from the very start! Which of course makes for some sexy steamy scenes, add in all the dirty talking hotness and we are talking about some ON FIRE steam!
The night of the play… that scene was one of my favorites that I won’t soon be forgetting!
❝𝑊𝑖𝑙𝑙 𝑚𝑦 𝑙𝑜𝑣𝑒 𝑓𝑜𝑟𝑔𝑖𝑣𝑒 𝑚𝑒 𝑓𝑜𝑟 𝑙𝑒𝑎𝑣𝑖𝑛𝑔 𝑤ℎ𝑒𝑛 ℎ𝑒 𝑓𝑖𝑟𝑠𝑡 ℎ𝑒𝑎𝑟𝑑 𝑜𝑓 𝑖𝑡? 𝐼𝑡 𝑤𝑎𝑠 𝑜𝑛𝑙𝑦 𝑓𝑒𝑎𝑟 𝑎𝑛𝑑 𝑖𝑛𝑠𝑒𝑐𝑢𝑟𝑖𝑡𝑖𝑒𝑠 𝑡ℎ𝑎𝑡 𝑑𝑟𝑜𝑣𝑒 ℎ𝑖𝑚 𝑡ℎ𝑢𝑠.❞
Well, besides the sexy scenes because my oh my were they sexy!!! There is NO cliffhanger, Not My Romeo wraps up beautifully with a sweet little epilogue that’s just the cherry on the cake!
❝𝑆𝑜𝑚𝑒𝑡𝑖𝑚𝑒𝑠, 𝑓𝑎𝑡𝑒 𝑔𝑖𝑣𝑒𝑠 𝑦𝑜𝑢 𝑎 𝑏𝑎𝑑 𝑔𝑎𝑚𝑒, 𝑏𝑢𝑡 𝑖𝑛 𝑡ℎ𝑒 𝑒𝑛𝑑 𝑑𝑒𝑠𝑡𝑖𝑛𝑦 𝑠𝑡𝑟𝑎𝑖𝑔ℎ𝑡𝑒𝑛𝑠 𝑖𝑡 𝑜𝑢𝑡. 𝐴𝑛𝑑 𝑦𝑜𝑢 𝑤𝑖𝑛. 𝑌𝑜𝑢 𝑎𝑛𝑑 𝐼 𝑎𝑟𝑒 𝑔𝑜𝑖𝑛𝑔 𝑡𝑜 𝑤𝑖𝑛.❞
Not My Romeo was an amazing start to the Game Changer’s Series and I am sooo excited to see what else Madden-Mills has in store for us! Devon, cocky as I don’t even know what Aiden, and my sweet, sweet Topher! I know Topher isn’t one of the football players (which is what I think this series is about..?) but I am REALLY hoping he gets a story as well… maybe with a certain James Bond bodyguard…?
If you’re looking for a lighthearted romantic comedy, you definitely should check out Not My Romeo.
