I want you . . . even when I hate you.

Blaze Townsend: I hate you.
Charisma Rossi: I hate you more.

She’s been expecting this ever since their latest showdown. She had good reason.

Hottest guy she’s ever seen.
Former fling.
Dumped her in front of all her friends.
At her own party.

So no, she’s not about to forgive and forget just because he sits next to her in class. He thinks all he has to do is turn on those baby blues, and she’ll melt right back into his arms. Please. She’d be crazy to let this cocky player affect her again. (Tell that to her body.)

Charisma Rossi.
Brainy girl with a dash of bad.
The one who got under his skin.
The one he cut loose.

Blaze knows she’s the riskiest prospect at Waylon University, but none of the interchangeable girls he hooks up with have ever made him feel the way she did. There’s absolutely no way he can have the girl and the game.

So why can’t he stop trying to win her back?

Can this wide receiver score the girl or will he make the biggest fumble of his life?


Ilsa Madden-Mills manages to beautifully illustrate the true meaning of love…from the hurt and pain to the good times surrounded with happiness. Blaze and Charisma’s story sure had its fair share of ups and downs, and the angst sent my heart into complete overdrive as I was wholeheartedly captivated by every moment of their complicated journey. These two take readers on a rollercoaster ride of emotions that left me wanting to reach through the screen of my kindle to give them each a big hug as they are both imperfectly broken from experiences of the past.

Charisma is a smart, sweet and sassy gal and Blaze is not your not so typical jock who is confident on the outside, but if you look a little deeper you see the pain he has suffered from and tries to hide. Reader can instantly see the undeniable chemistry between them, but both have been hurt before and sometimes it’s hard to open yourself up to someone who could be your other half because the thought of losing them is unbearable. I hated how stubborn they were at times and just when I think things are FINALLY starting falling in place, something unexpected happens. They slow burn romance kind of feeling definitely melted my heart time and time again!

Charisma and Blaze were definitely one of my favorite couples and I am so glad this phenomenal author finally decided to give us their story…oh and also managed to perfectly intertwine glimpse back into past characters…Ryker, Penelope and let’s not forget my favorite smarta** bird, Vampire Bill!
