Johnaka's Review 

Boyfriend Bargain by Ilsa Madden-Mills
“Title says it all, 5 stars”

Sugar needs a boyfriend, specifically Z. See she should have been a shoo in for law school off her scores alone but someone is playing games with her and she only wants to go to one school. The man she needs to impress is a huge hockey fan, Z is a hockey player. Will she be able to get out of her shell and ask him or will she call it quits?
Z isn’t your typical hockey player. He goes to parties because he has to not because he wants to. he suffers from anxiety but keeps it under wraps, it’s a struggle. But he can’t let those who depend on him down. Then Sugar comes into his life. At first, she reminds him of someone he used to know, but once he gets to know her as herself is all he sees. Will he be able to convince her to change the bargain into the real deal?
I really did love Sugar and Z. I loved their friends and what they added to the couple. I loved how they supported one another and really made sure the other was good. Z was the perfect kind of alpha male. The chemistry between them was on point. I really hope this isn’t the last we see of Z and Sugar because Madden-Mills killed it with them.
Ratings: Plot-5/5 
Writing style-5/5 

Jennifer's Review 

What a book! The Boyfriend Bargain is a great novel. I really liked the characters and plot. This book has romance, heartbreak, and hope. If you like college romances with a twist, take a look at this one.

The whole fake relationship thing has always interested me. This book was no different. What I didn't expect was the twists thrown in there. I loved them. They were perfect and added to the plot nicely.

Let's just talk about Sugar for a minute. I mean with a name like Sugar I just knew I would love her. She is tough and independent, but also sweet like her name suggests. I really liked her. Then you have Zack. He is arrogant and cocky, but also has a darker side. I liked exploring that part of him.

The heat in this book is amazing. Let's just say there is plenty of steam in this book. The characters have an interesting dynamic. Their attraction is evident, but their desire to fight it adds to the build up.

The pace of this story is steady. The story is told from dual point of views. The characters are loveable and dynamic. The author did a good job developing the minor characters as well as the main.

Overall, this is a great story. This is perfect for anyone looking for a college romance that dives deep. This book held heartbreak, but also hope for forgiveness and second chances at life. I would recommend this book.

Plot: 5/5
Characters: 5/5
Heat: 5/5
Writing Style: 5/5
Overall: 5/5
