Wanted: one hot guy with rock-hard abs and a big stick
Broke and desperate, Sugar Ryan has no use for arrogant, bad boy athletes . . . until she’s forced to bargain with the cockiest of them all. If only he knew she was alive. Her mission? Get on this hockey player’s radar any way possible. Zack Morgan is the king of the ice and the bedroom—but nothing prepares him for the mystery girl who shows up everywhere he does—frat parties, his favorite bar, and finally his front door with an offer he can’t refuse. The only rule in her boyfriend bargain: no falling in love. But after one (um, two) smoking-hot hookups, he’s done with pretending and vows to make their fake relationship real. Too bad she can’t trust a player with a reputation for breaking hearts. Will this hockey star score his forever girl or will their Boyfriend Bargain end in heartbreak?

Boyfriend Bargain by Ilsa Madden-Mills is a story about falling in love, with my favorite background this case hockey.  Sugar Ryan yearns to get into law school so that she can show her father's family that she is good enough, and the only way to do that is to attend the same law school that he did.  But despite her amazing grades and LSAT score Sugar is on the wait list.  She needs to figure out a way to give her an edge over the other wait listed students and that is Zach Morgan.  Zach Morgan is a hockey player on her college team that was drafted by the Predators, joining the NHL after graduation.  Since the admissions counselor is a huge Zach Morgan fan, all Sugar has to do is get Zach to pretend to be her boyfriend and she is in.

Zach Morgan doesn't do relationships, for so many reason than just being busy with hockey.  With a past whose guilt still plagues him to this day, he can't have any more distractions, until this nerdy girl starts showing up everywhere staring at him.  When Zach finally confronts Sugar she tells him what she needs, a fake boyfriend, specifically him in order to get into law school.

Zach agrees to Sugar's proposal, despite his head telling him otherwise.  What Zach doesn't expect is to fall for Sugar.  But the twists and turns that take place during their "fake" relationship only bring them closer together and farther apart at the same time.  This story is heartwarming and moving and has the reading feeling the guilt that Zach feels, his anguish and Sugar's need to prove that she is good enough.

“We should kiss, just get it out of the way and move on," I say, sure of the crazy idea as each second passes. There’s a hitch in Z’s breath, and his eyes go straight to my lips. “Works for me.” “But just one. None of that fancy tongue work.” “Afraid of falling in love with me?” He grins. Well. My eyes take in the broad shoulders and the dragon tattoo on his muscled chest. He’s definitely my type: pure, grade A male hotness—exactly what I don’t need. “I won't fall in love.” Another grin. “Liar.”
