Beauty and the Baller, an all-new emotional and steamy opposites attract, fake relationship standalone romance from Wall Street Journal bestselling author Ilsa Madden-Mills is available now!
An NFL quarterback turned small-town coach gets sacked by a Texas beauty queen in this swoony, passionate romance from Wall Street Journal bestselling author Ilsa Madden-Mills.
Gorgeous, talented, and brilliant, NFL quarterback Ronan Smith has the world in his hands. But after losing his career and his fiancée in a car accident, he falls into a pit of grief and bad choices. When a mysterious girl shows up to his party, he feels drawn to her and makes her his…for one night.
Former beauty queen Nova Morgan is on a mission. Scantily clad as a princess from a galaxy far, far away, she sneaks into a high-profile party to capture the attention of her favorite quarterback. But her hopes crash after an awful one-night stand.
Fast-forward two years. Broke and desperate, Nova returns home to Blue Belle, Texas, where, by a cosmic twist of fate, her broody neighbor is none other than Ronan, the shiny new football coach everyone adores. But he has no idea who she is.
The booster club keeps shoving women at Ronan to keep him in town. His solution? He proposes fake dating to Nova. But things heat up for real under these Friday-night lights when he realizes she’s the one who slipped away.
Has this jaded beauty found her forever baller, or will his past keep them apart?

I was so excited to hear that a new story was coming from Ms. Madden-Mills! I have been a long-time fan of hers.
This new story is all the things you love in a romance. This story of Nova and Ronin is a story of fate, timing, and finding your glow! There are so many things I loved about this story!
I loved Nova; she is beautiful, fierce and loyal to her family. I also loved her directness and honesty, but I especially loved it when she showed her vulnerabilities in returning home and facing her past.
Oh Ronin, what a broken soul he is. He finds himself in the small town of Blue Belle, coaching high school football, using this as a placeholder for his dreams of coaching college and eventually the NFL. His professional career as a baller was taken from him tragically, both physically and emotionally. He has his walls built high.
I loved their first meeting; it was both steamy and heartbreaking. I loved how coming together years later forged their relationship. I loved how they both leaned on each other for support. I loved the yellow roses and the meaning behind them! So. Much. Love!
I have never been disappointed by a story from Ilsa Madden-Mills, and this story is phenomenal!
