“Madden-Mills masterfully handles the protagonists’ insecurities and traumas to produce a love story that’s equal parts tantalizing, gut-wrenching, and sweet.” --Publishers Weekly
Not My Match, an all-new sports romance full of smoking hot chemistry from Wall Street Journal bestselling author Ilsa Madden-Mills, is available now!
Wall Street Journal bestselling author Ilsa Madden-Mills delivers a smart and sexy romance about a professional football hottie and the girl he’s sworn to never touch.
Homeless and heartbreakingly innocent, Giselle Riley walks into my penthouse and chaos follows.
I shouldn’t have invited the girl genius to live with me, but it’s clear she needs my help—not only for a place to lay her pretty blonde head but in finding real love, which she’s not going to get with the crazy men she picks up online.
Too bad she’s a twenty-four-year-old virgin and I’m a bad boy wide receiver. She’s off limits for a hardcore player like me—and we’re just friends.
Instead, I’m her matchmaking service, no matter how jealous it makes me when I tag along on her dates.
I can keep my self-control. Right? No way will I give in to everything inside me that dreams of a girl like her in my world.
I may be the best wide receiver in the country, but how could I hold on to a girl like her?

Review Copy Provided by Author
In Not My Match, we return to the world introduced in Not My Romeo. Ms Madden Mills brings us back to Daisy, TN and the Daisy Lady Gang with younger sister Giselle.
Giselle is at a bit of a cross roads when we meet her in this book. We see her struggle a and even deal with her birthday curse. On the sidelines for her adventures, and to come to the rescue when needed, Devon (the teammate of her new brother in law).
I liked both characters here. Giselle is a lot stronger than she thanks she is and it was truly fun to see her stretch her wings and fight for what she wants and needs. Devon is a great example of still waters running deep. He’s a good guy hiding behind a playboy persona.
This is a fun, well written slow burn/friends to lovers story that kept us guessing as to what would happen. The secondary cast here is great too. Aiden (another teammate) adds a layer of competition/humor and Giselle’s family is a hoot.
Technically, this is a stand alone, but I highly recommend reading Not My Romeo first as pieces of the background are laid/more fully explained there. Having enjoyed the first two books so much, I have to admit that I hope Aiden has a story coming soon too.
