Talkin’ Bout ~ Dear Ava

Happy Friday, everyone!! I hope you’ve all had a good week! It’s been a little crazy here. I mentioned not that long ago how bizarre it was the we had an earthquake. The first one ever for our area, but I slept through it. Well, yesterday evening none of us were sleeping when the 3rd one hit. Yes, the 3rd one…apparently we’d had a second one hit earlier in the day yesterday. None of us felt it, but people nearby did. It was only a 2.5. Yesterday evening was a 3.1, and we all felt it. Now I’ve got to check and see if we have earthquake coverage…something I never in my life thought I’d have to worry about. I used to say I’d never move to CA because I wouldn’t want to deal with the earthquakes – too scary…

Series: The Game Changers #2
Author: Ilsa Madden-Mills

Release Date: January 19, 2021
Publisher: Montlake
Genres: Contemporary Romance/Sports

Blurb:

Wall Street Journal bestselling author Ilsa Madden-Mills delivers a smart and sexy romance about a professional football hottie and the girl he’s sworn to never touch.

Homeless and heartbreakingly innocent, Giselle Riley walks into my penthouse and chaos follows.

I shouldn’t have invited the girl genius to live with me, but it’s clear she needs my help—not only for a place to lay her pretty blonde head but in finding real love, which she’s not going to get with the crazy men she picks up online.

Too bad she’s a twenty-four-year-old virgin and I’m a bad boy wide receiver. She’s off limits for a hardcore player like me—and we’re just friends.

Instead, I’m her matchmaking service, no matter how jealous it makes me when I tag along on her dates.

I can keep my self-control. Right? No way will I give in to everything inside me that dreams of a girl like her in my world.

I may be the best wide receiver in the country, but how could I hold on to a girl like her?

WSJ bestselling author Ilsa Madden-Mills returns with an all-new, enemies-to-lovers second chance romance between the football hottie and the feisty nerd girl he can’t forget.

I want you . . . even when I hate you.

Blaze Townsend: I hate you.
Charisma Rossi: I hate you more.

She’s been expecting this ever since their latest showdown. She had good reason.

Hottest guy she’s ever seen.
Former fling.
Dumped her in front of all her friends.
At her own party.

So no, she’s not about to forgive and forget just because he sits next to her in class. He thinks all he has to do is turn on those baby blues, and she’ll melt right back into his arms. Please. She’d be crazy to let this cocky player affect her again. (Tell that to her body.)

Charisma Rossi.
Brainy girl with a dash of bad.
The one who got under his skin.
The one he cut loose.
