and available in Kindle Unlimited!


5 STARS!

Release Date: July 25, 2021

SYNOPSIS: Skyscraper cheekbones, lush lips, and magnetic topaz eyes.
Iโ€™m talking about Eric Hansen.
Rich prick.
Glorified hockey star.
Thinks heโ€™s amazing.
Yeah. The Golden Boy and I areย wellย acquainted. In prep school he trampled on my heart and kept right on going.

Three years later, heโ€™s living the high life with frat parties and puck bunnies at Hawthorne University. On the other hand, people barely notice me. Iโ€™m the nobody, surviving in the seedy part of town as I struggle to keep my head above treacherous waters. The avoidance game weโ€™ve been playing on campus was workingโ€”until he rescues me from a bad guy and claims he wants to help me more. Hello. I donโ€™t need a knight in shining armor. This girl savesย herself. Yet, he keeps showing up just when I need him, and I’m not sure how long I can ignore the undeniable spark between us. (Itโ€™s not even a spark; itโ€™s a full-fledged blazing fire.) Can Eric prove heโ€™s boyfriend material, or will this be a game we both lose?



REVIEW: I have been waiting for this book since I read Boyfriend Bargain back in 2019!! I was so excited that it was coming, and it releases on my birthday, which I felt like is a total sign. It was actually a lot deeper than I thought it was gonna be, but I really loved it. While both of these characters have dealt with so much, they come from such different backgrounds. Itโ€™s amazing to see them grow throughout the story. One thing I love about Ilsa Madden-Mills’ books, is the character development and how much I enjoy the characters themselves. I sincerely love that Julia and Eric get their second chance. I also love the happy ending of this one so very much.ย 

Something else I enjoyed about this one is that it kind of highlights how we think we know people when weโ€™re younger, but we donโ€™t really know them as well as we think we do. That as we grow, and learn more about people and their experiences, we start to realize why they behave in certain ways. Not that understanding excuses certain behaviors, but often times in this book itโ€™s the perfect example of what really understanding someone and loving someone unconditionally looks like. I am so happy that we finally got Eric’s story!ย 

Thank you to Ilsa Madden-Mills and Social Butterfly PR for the eARC in exchange for an honest review!


Boyfriend Material is an emotional (and steamy) new adult college romance perfect for fans of enemies to lovers or second chances. It’s aย stand-alone storyย about a new couple although readingย Boyfriend Bargain (Book 1)ย may enrich the reading experience.

Please note the trigger warning inside the book.

Dear Ava by Isla Madden-Mills

4.5 STARS!

Release Date: February 3, 2020

SYNOPSIS: The rich and popular Sharks rule at prestigious, ivy-covered Camden Prep. Once upon a time, I wanted to be part of their worldโ€”until one of them destroyed me. The last thing I expected was an anonymous love letter from one of them. Please. I hate every one of those rich jerks for what they did to me. The question is, which Shark is my secret admirer: Knox, the scarred quarterback and their leader, Dane, his twin brother, or Chance, the ex who dumped me…

Dear Ava,

Your eyes are the color of the Caribbean Sea.</del> Thatโ€™s stupid. 

What I really mean is, you look at me and I feel something REAL. Itโ€™s been ten months since you were here, but I canโ€™t forget you. Iโ€™ve missed seeing you walk down the hall. Iโ€™ve missed you cheering at my football games. Iโ€™ve missed the smell of your hair.The truth is, I wanted you back thenโ€”but you had him.And then everything fell apart that night.Donโ€™t hate me because Iโ€™m a Shark. I just want to make you mine. 

Still.

REVIEW: I’ve read almost every single one of Ilsa Madden-Mills’ books, so I had a feeling I would like this one. TALK ABOUT DARK AND MESSY CHARACTERS. I freakin’ loved them. If you’ve ever read my reviews, you may notice I have a soft spot of characters that have endured some trauma in their past. Which means these two main characters were all up in the feels for me. It starts really dark, and stays that way for a while. Luckily, Ava is a fierce female lead. I loved her journey throughout this book and the male love interest is just so enticing. There are a couple dirty scenes in this one that really speak to the strong connection these two have. The angst, the back and forth, the tear-jerk moments all make this book an emotional rollercoaster and I loved it. The only reason I wouldn’t give a full 5 stars is a personal preference. The ending just wasn’t my kind of ending, but you’ll have to read to see how you feel about it. If you like dark romances, I think you’ll enjoy this one tremendously!

The night we met in the dimly lit bar, she looked like a brunette bombshell, and I wanted to learn her deepest secrets. With sun-kissed skin and soulful bedroom eyes, she was pure temptation, and I was mesmerized. 

As one drink led to two, I craved more of her playful banter and taunting lips. Resisting her wasnโ€™t an option, and we quickly became a desperate mess of tangled limbs and hot kisses. She tasted like the sweetest sin, but I was no saint. 

Once we caught our breaths, and it became obvious that meeting her wasnโ€™t a coincidence, everything changed. Now I must deny her at all costs.

๐น๐‘Ÿ๐‘–๐‘’๐‘›๐‘‘๐‘ . Itโ€™s all we can ever be. 

After years of lying to myself and keeping her at a distance, I want to pull her close. Sophieโ€™s on my mind more than ever as my instincts to protect her take over. Regardless of my attempts to help, she pushes me away and makes it clear she doesnโ€™t need me. 

Iโ€™ll do whatever it takes to keep her safe, to show her Iโ€™m the good guy, but one night takes a tragic turn for the worse when her boyfriend and I start throwing punches.

REVIEW

I AM HERE FOR THE DRAMA. We get a sneak peak at the end of Baby Yours of “the incident” and I knew from that I needed Mason and Sophie’s story ASAP. I got answers for so many questions I had about them in the first duet as side characters. There is definitely a theme to this series besides being roommates, and that is all the fighting-feelings-angst possible! If you’re ready for serious topics, the sloooooowest burn, and all the damn feels, definitely pick this one up. It’s torturous waiting for Truly Yours, book 2, but in the best way. I can’t wait to see where Mason and Sophie’s journey takes them.
