5 ‘All my universes’ Stars!
ARC provided via Social Butterfly PR in exchange for an honest review.
Ilsa Madden-Mills. This woman has won me over and over since the start of last year and she continues doing it. She has quickly become one of my favorite authors and it says a lot that this is the second year in a row one of her books is the first added in my favorites’ shelf. I was highly expecting this story ever since I finished Not My Romeo and I have to say that Not My Match is even better. In a very short time, Devon and Giselle have become my favorite couple in this series (for now!) and I think their beautiful love story cannot be missed.
So, Not My Match is the second installment in Ilsa’s The Game Changers series and it follows with the story of two of the characters we met in the first book: Giselle Riley (Elena’s sister) and Devon Walsh (Jack’s best friend). Two polar opposites. Literally. Giselle is an extremely smart woman but unsure of herself and unexperienced in the sex department. Devon is an amazing wide receiver known as a hardcore player and not fan of relationships. But what happens when they become roommates and there is this strange zing between them? Well, sparks fly, of course.
She’s like a pal. One I can’t touch. There’s a clear thick line drawn between us.
I don’t even know where to start because I just loved everything about this novel. I thought I could not love Devon and Giselle more than I loved Elena and Jack but man.. was I wrong! These two opposites that just clicked from the very first meeting completely stole the show for me and their love story was one beautiful journey to read. The banter, the friendship, the slow burn, the emotions running high, the chemistry, the love. Everything about Not My Match was perfect.
Do what makes your heart fly. Every breath you inhale must be meaningful.
Reading how Devon and Giselle find that they are not as different and how that develops into an unbreakable connection, I just was a pool of melted happiness. Learning their stories, their difficulties, and their vulnerabilities. I enjoyed every second of how this love story is build. And how even though they try to put a stop to it, their chemistry and their emotions are so much stronger than that and this couple finally gets their much deserved happy ending. I was a blubbering mess towards the end but boy, it was so worth it!
“You are the best person in all my universes.”
Therefore, I am rating Not My Match with 5 STARS (my first of 2021!) because this story gripped me from start to finish and the connection and chemistry between Devon and Giselle was amazing, heartwarming and sexy AF. This one is for sure going on my yearly favorites that I can assure you (and it’s only January) because that is how good this love story is. Two polar opposites falling completely in love and written by the super talented Ilsa Madden-Mills? CHECK! CHECK! CHECK! Highly recommend reading this brilliant romance!
