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?

Beauty and the Baller is Ilsa Madden-Mills’ newest epic, second chance, fake relationship romance and I loved every second of it. It has heart, heat, humor, fun, sexiness, Star Wars, football, southern charm and a cast of relatable and loveable characters. Ronan is floored when his dream, a gorgeous blonde in a Princess Leia costume, crashes a football party. What’s a hero to do? Like Han Solo, save the Princess. Ronan might have been grief stricken and a little drunk, but his princess left a mark on his heart and soul. Nova jumps at the chance to get closer to The Ronan Smith. Dress up and pretend to know things about Star Wars? Check. Dance with sexy footballer? Check. Go back to his room and have the best night of your life? Check. It didn’t end the way Nova wanted, but she moved on, tried to forget about the hurt. Now she’s back in her hometown in Texas after her mother’s passing and the new football coach lives next door. To say she was shocked to find Ronan was the coach is a sever understatement. He’s still s gorgeous, but she has to ignore that. She hates him. He’s a jerkface. And apparently all the women in Blue Belle want him. Except her. Right? She needs to find a job, figure out how to raise her teenage sister. Ronan doesn’t remember her, but when he does it is on. He still feels a connection to the sexy blonde who ultimately saved him. What he needs it a fake girlfriend so all the crazy single women in town back off. He needs to keep things easy and light. He doesn’t expect to want to spend time with Nova. Want to know things about her. Her Secrets. What she wants out of life. He definitely did not expect to fall for her. But this town and the high school coaching job is just a stepping stone. Right? This can’t be his forever. Ronan doesn’t know what hit him until he almost loses it all. Will he be able to fight for his new life? Learn to live in the moment? Trust in fate? Wow! I have read a lot of books by Ilsa and this is by far one of my top two favorites. It has everything I love in a romance. A second chance, humor, sexiness, a fun, smart sexy hero with sexy hair, an independent, smart heroine. Secondary characters that could have their own stories and of course love. I laughed, cried, had to fan myself and wish there were going to be more Ronan and Nova. I honestly couldn’t love this story more! P.S. I love her clothes and shoes and his undying love for Star Wars!
