An NFL quarterback turned small-town coach gets sacked by a Texas beauty queen in this swoony, passionate romance from Wall Street Journal bestselling author Ilsa Madden-Mills.
Gorgeous, talented, and brilliant, NFL quarterback Ronan Smith has the world in his hands. But after losing his career and his fiancée in a car accident, he falls into a pit of grief and bad choices. When a mysterious girl shows up to his party, he feels drawn to her and makes her his…for one night.
Former beauty queen Nova Morgan is on a mission. Scantily clad as a princess from a galaxy far, far away, she sneaks into a high-profile party to capture the attention of her favorite quarterback. But her hopes crash after an awful one-night stand.
Fast-forward two years. Broke and desperate, Nova returns home to Blue Belle, Texas, where, by a cosmic twist of fate, her broody neighbor is none other than Ronan, the shiny new football coach everyone adores. But he has no idea who she is.
The booster club keeps shoving women at Ronan to keep him in town. His solution? He proposes fake dating to Nova. But things heat up for real under these Friday-night lights when he realizes she’s the one who slipped away.
Has this jaded beauty found her forever baller, or will his past keep them apart?

Review Copy Provided by Author
The Beauty and the Baller has a case of the blurb not doing to book justice. I went into this one expecting a light, funny read with a side of heart. I knew it would be well written cause it’s an Ilsa Madden-Mills book, but I wasn’t expecting the depth of emotion that poured off the page.
When we first truly meet Nova and Ronan, they are both carrying baggage. Issues that could make them hard to relate too instead make them likeable because we see them work every day to not let the past weigh them down.
It was fun watching these two transition from semi-animosity, to partners in crime, to almost friends, and maybe more. There were plenty of funny moments, things that endeared Nova and Ronan to us as readers, but there was also a level of sweetness that spoke to their evolution- even if they didn’t realize it was happening.
Add in a great secondary cast plus the over-the-top town of Blue Belle and this was a book that I had a hard time putting g down.
