Review – The Revenge Pact (Kings of Football, #1) by Ilsa Madden-Mills

River Tate is a god on campus.
The king of football.
A tattooed bad boy with gunmetal eyes that see right through you.
The only chink in his armor is her, the girl he pretends doesn’t exist, the forbidden one with the shy smile and lavender hair.

Anastasia Bailey is a nobody.
The queen of nothing.
An outsider with the face of an angel and a body made for sin.
The only chink in her armor is him, her boyfriend’s frat brother, the football player who hates her.

But when Anastasia’s life comes crashing down, River’s the one who sweeps in and picks up the pieces.
Torn between loyalty, lies, and secrets, he battles the temptation to take everything from her when they make their revenge pact.

He can’t tell her no.
Because revenge (or love) is, sweet, and once you get a taste, the craving never ends.

The Revenge Pact was fantastic and I absolutely loved River and Anastasia’s funny, sexy, emotional, and swoon-worthy story!

   I loved the storyline and thought Ilsa Madden-Mills did an incredible job. Sports romance is one of my favorite tropes, and when paired with a slight enemies-to-lovers aspect with a twist, The Revenge Pact was right up my alley. River and Anastasia’s story took me on a fun and entertaining journey, and I was ecstatic with the conclusion.

   The characters were phenomenal. I absolutely loved River and Anastasia. I loved their personalities and red-hot chemistry together, and how their relationship progressed throughout. River and Anastasia were perfect for each other, and I loved witnessing their love story unfold.

   The Revenge Pact was a sexy, emotional, humorous, and swoon-worthy standalone sports romance, and I would highly recommend River and Anastasia’s story! It was an excellent kickoff to the Kings of Football series, and I can’t wait to read the remaining two standalones!
