Madden-Mills - Not My Romeo - 29324 -CV-FT-V

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?

Not My Romeo is a new sweet heart thumping romance with an abundance of quirky and fun characters!

Elena Is Librarian by day and secret lingerie designer by night. Though she has a fiery spirit and fun personality she’s had some bad luck in the men department. On a blind date Elena meets famous footballer Jack Hawks, except he’s not the blind date she’s supposed to meet.

Their chance encounter throws Jack and Elena into a small town, world wind romance. Elena knows what she wants and knows how much Jack is closed off due to his past, but she can’t stop herself from wanting to be close to him anyway.

When these two end up in the local play together as Romeo and Juliet, they have no choice but work together and decide whether their chemistry is worth exploring. Elena is all in, but what will it take to prove to Jack that he can trust her?

This book was fantastic. I loved Jack and Elenas chemistry. The sparks were everywhere on every single page. I loved that Elena was so driven but so kind. While I loved that even though Jack was an alpha male he had such a shy side to him that made him so different from other sports romance alphas.

Their relationship and story was refreshing. I’m still thinking about them 24 hours after finishing the book. I can’t wait to see more from this series!
