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.

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.

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

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 story with great narrators!!!

I absolutely loved this book when I read it. This time I listened to it on audible and fell in love with it all over again. Ilsa Madden-Mills creates very relatable and likable characters. I loved Sugar and Z!!! This story is the perfect mix of heartwarming moments mixed with serious heat. She also includes a character who struggles with anxiety. I love that this amazing guy is not thought of as any less-cool for having panic attacks. This book is helping remove the stigma associated with mental health issues. I LOVE that!!!!Also, the narrators did a truly great job. I think Stephen Dexter may be my new fav!!

Fantastic listening experience!

I only listen to books I've already read and this book was a Top Read 2019 for me. I thought it was a stunningly good read!! My heart is full. Just fabulous!

"Zack Morgan is an inferno that will burn me up. There's something about him that makes me lose my breath. And that...that must not be allowed."

Sugar Ryan has got something to prove, which makes her a desperate young woman. Desperate enough to proposition the big sports star on campus. However, when the lines start to blur, she must remember to keep her vulnerable heart guarded.

"I'm going to make her mine. She just doesn't know it yet."

Zack AKA Z Morgan is on the cusp of NHL stardom. He's in his final year of college and he wants to leave on a high. He's fed up with the party scene but, as captain of the hockey team, he likes to keep up appearances. And, appearance is important since he's hiding a big secret from everyone except his family and his best friend.

I loved this book SO HARD!! I thought it was going to be a fun, light read but it was actually quite angsty and emotional.

Zack's reputation precedes him but a lot of it is just rumour. I loved the real guy underneath his public persona. He's full of guilt and pain from the past. His connection with Sugar is compelling and I loved how he could let his walls down and be real with her. Sugar is a tough cookie. She's got real backbone and I admired her courage. And, goodness, the chemistry between them is absolutely scorching! The author really knows how to write those steamy scenes! *fans self*

This novel was just gorgeous. It was about passion, guilt, forgiveness and falling into forever love. I was completely riveted by it.

I thought that Stephen Dexter and Savannah Peachwood brought the book to life. Dexter is an amazing voice actor and he portrayed Zack's emotions perfectly. Fabulous!

Good story

Story was good.
Male narrator was a bit overdramatic and read too slowly for me. I had to increase the speed to 1.25 !
