Review/Release Blitz: Boyfriend Material (Hawthorne University, #2) by Ilsa Madden-Mills.

I’m not sure how long I can ignore the undeniable spark between us.

Boyfriend Material, an all-new swoon-worthy new adult sports romance from Wall Street Journal bestselling author Ilsa Madden-Mills is available now!

#1 Amazon Bestselling author Ilsa Madden-Mills delivers an all-new, enemies-to-lovers sports romance, a breathtaking tale of passion, heartbreak, and love…

Skyscraper cheekbones, lush lips, and magnetic topaz eyes.

I’m talking about Eric Hansen. 

Rich prick. 

Glorified hockey star. 

Thinks he’s amazing.  

The Golden Boy and I are well acquainted. In prep school he trampled on my heart then kept right on going. 

Now, he’s living the high life with frat parties and puck bunnies at Hawthorne University. On the other hand, people barely notice me—unless I’m on stage taking my clothes off. I’m the nobody, surviving in the seedy part of town as I fight to keep my head above treacherous waters. 

I’ve snubbed him for three years. 

The avoidance game we’ve been playing was working—until he rescues me from a bad guy and claims he wants to help me more. 

Hello. I don’t need a knight in shining armor. This girl saves herself.

Yet, I’m not sure how long I can ignore the undeniable spark between us. (It’s not even a spark; it’s a full-fledged, blazing fire.)

Can this hockey player prove he’s boyfriend material, or will our past get in the way?

This steamy romance is perfect for fans of enemies-to-lovers or second-chances. Boyfriend Material is a new adult college romance.

My Review of Boyfriend Material

Boyfriend Material by Ilsa Madden-Mills

My rating: 5 of 5 stars ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

The Stripper and The Miracle!

The following ratings are out of 5:
Romance: 💙💚🖤💜❤️
Heat/Steam: 🔥🔥🔥🔥
Story/Plot: 📕📗📘📙📔
World building: 🌎🌍🌏🌎🌍
Character development: 😪😠🤐🙂🥰

The heroine: Julia – Julia went to prep school on scholarship and started out at Hawthorne University like many of the other students, with scholarships and grants to pay her way. Though when her mom got sick everything changed. She now works as a stripper at the campus strip club and owes money she doesn’t have to a local loan shark.

The Hero: Eric – Captain of the Hawthorne University Hockey team, Eric is one of the campus elites. He comes from a wealthy background and has always seemed to live a charmed life. Though he has high expectations set on him by his parents, which includes being like his brother Kurt, becoming a lawyer and eventually working at his Dad’s hedge fund.

The Story: Julia and Eric went to prep school together and had a short fling. She was in love and he was a player. She thought he would be different with her than his previous reputation suggested. However, the day after he took her virginity he ghosted her. Three years later and they both walk the other way when they see each other, until one night when she is in trouble and he helps her out.

I really liked Eric in Boyfriend Bargain so I was happy to see this book come out. He was best friends with Z who now plays in the NHL. However, he was quite troubled in this book, he had a lot on his shoulders with wanting to please his father but constantly failing to live up to expectations. After the night he helped Julia, he can’t seem to get her off his mind.

I liked the flow of this book, the humor and the supporting characters were terrific. I hope Eric’s roommates Boone and Reece get their own books in this series since they seem to be great guys. I loved all the storylines in this one, I don’t want to give anything more away than the background info above, so I won’t say anything else about the plot, but I read straight through till morning despite having to get up early for work. The romance was fantastic, the intimate scenes were steamy and the storylines were intriguing. I love new adult sports romance and this was one of the best, it had everything.
