Review ❤️ Not My Match by Ilsa Madden-Mills

January 21, 2021


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?

Giselle should have known that her life would have changed as she approached her 24th birthday. Something weird always happens around this time of the year. Her brother-in-law has declared her off limits to all of his teammates so her dating life is very limited. She is determined to find someone though and she has a blind date with a guy off a dating app. It is going horrible until Devon shows up and rescues her.

To make matters even worst, her apartment caught on fire and she is now homeless. Once again, Devon is there to the rescue and offers her a place to stay. Giselle shares with Devon that she is going to find her a man and he offers to help since she is clueless in that department.

This slow burn romance worked its magic on me. Giselle and Devon had enough chemistry and sexy banter to keep me entertain throughout the story. They say that opposites attract and in Giselle and Devon’s case they are correct. The straight-laced virgin and wild man whore jock find that they have a lot more in common than they would have thought.

I went into this story with some trepidation after Giselle’s stunt in book 1.  I didn’t buy her innocent act but she held her own. She is quirky and weird (what can you expect from a genius). She needs help to find love and of course the man whore is the perfect guy to help her. If you know about her mom, sister and aunt, then you can warm up to her a bit.

Devon is the perfect alpha male hero. He has a lot of issues that he needs to work on. The relationship with his father played a big role in how he handled Giselle. At one point, I wanted him to just tell her how he felt but I understood how he was nervous to be abandoned again. There is a little drama and angst but the story could have used a bit more.

Overall, I’m loving this sports romance series. I look forward to the next book.
