REVIEW: Not My Romeo by Ilsa Madden Mills

I absolutely loved this book! The writing drew me in and made me feel like I was part of this little southern town. Jack and Elena were so perfect for each other. It takes Jack a while to trust since he’s been through so much. Even though he struggled with trusting Elena, everything was just so easy with them. Their chemistry was combustible.I would love to see more from this group of amazing characters.

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?
