REVIEW ➞ Not My Romeo by Ilsa Madden-Mills


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?

Who, tell me who, agrees to a blind date on Valentine’s Day? Me, apparently.


The moment I started reading this book I fell in love. Mistaken identity, quirky librarian who also designs lingerie and a football star? I am 1000% sold.

From the moment Elena and Jack met on a blind date that was never supposed to happen there was something between them. They were drawn to each other. They have some ups and downs, some doubts, however, there is no denying the amount of chemistry these two have for each other and how perfect they are for each other.

I love Elena and her quirkiness. I love her hobby and her passion for it and how fitting she makes it to her personality. Plus, she has a pet pig. Jack is also a fantastic character. He isn’t the typical arrogant, overly cocky professional football star. There is more to him and he has some secrets that make him so much more lovable and gives him some quirkiness, too.

Not My Romeo was amazing from start to finish and I didn’t want this story to end. I was completely sucked into the story and had trouble putting it down. I can’t wait for more of the series. A MUST READ!

P.S. How do I join the Daisy Lady Gang? I totally want to be a member.
