My brother's best friend has a proposition for me. Have I mentioned he's a sexy single dad? Tell me more...
There are a million reasons why Miles Hart isn't the man I should date but allow me to enumerate the top three. He's friends with my brother, he's a single dad, and he's a sexy, in-demand rock star. He might as well wear an off-limits, totally unavailable, and don't-even-attempt-to-ride-this-ride sign.
Then he asks me to be his plus-one when his band plays at his high school reunion, and the night unfolds in ways I never expect.
I have three good reasons to keep my hands off Roxy Sterling--her brother's my business manager and good buddy, my kid is the center of my world, and the last time I fell hard for a woman I was burned so badly that my interest in relationships has gone up in flames. But once I bring Roxy's body next to mine on the dance floor, I want all the not-safe-for-work things I can't have with her. So I make a proposition.
Then I learn exactly how risky we might be.
Love Miles and Roy
I loved this book. Lauren Blakely had such wonderful real and loving characters in Once Upon a Wild Fling. I know I will miss reading about the Heartbreakers and their significant others. This story was really sweet. I totally fell in love with this single dad. Definitely a fave star read.
This book was probably my favorite out I’d the series. I loved the story and the characters. I love how Ben was a big past if the story.
Sexy and fun
I'm a total Heartbreakers groupie!! This book was full of my personal kryptonite. Sexy, single dad? Check. Heroine who is the sister of hero's friend? Check. Adorable kid? Check. I couldn't stop smiling and swooning while reading this book. I loved it from start to finish-and didn't want to see it end.
Roxy was such a fun character for me. I think she had such a unique story to tell and I love how the Author told it. She's smart, sassy and determined. Not to mention, she's strong and determined to march to the beat of her own drum to get things done. I absolutely loved her. I adored watching her interact with Miles, too. Life threw her a curveball and I enjoyed seeing how she handled it.
Miles. Oh. My. Miles. Yes, he's mine. He is such an amazing book boyfriend. Sexy, funny, sweet and did I mention sexy? I'd love to be on the receiving end of some texts from Miles. He had my heart from the start. He's such a nice guy, and with that sexy streak? He's definitely a chicken magnet...and I just loved him.
I have to mention Ben. Some Authors mention that a character has a child and then they're kind of an afterthought. That's not the case here. I love how Ben interacts with both Miles and Roxy-and how he explains things in the way that only a child can. He was adorable and I loved him.
So I love the first kiss couples share. I wait anxiously for it, truly. The first kiss in this book? Oh my! So hot and sexy I was fanning myself while I read it. The connection these two have is so tangible. I enjoyed watching them flirt and fall for one another. It felt so completely natural. Do they have hot sex? Absolutely. But what they have outside the bedroom is just as important and I loved seeing them navigate what a relationship would be like.
The banter between these two? Perfection. I love how they flirt and talk to one another. Like I said, I wouldn't mind being on the receiving end of some texts from Miles. I fully believed everything these two said to each other-both in words and actions.
The supporting characters here are fantastic. It was great to catch up with the characters from the previous books (if you haven't read the others in the series you can still enjoy this. It is a standalone!). I have to admit the relationship between Roxy and her Mom was portrayed so perfectly and I think it's one everyone will be able to relate to-I know I did.
The pacing here was perfect. The plot was one I didn't see coming and I really enjoyed it. I truly didn't want to see this book end but I know this is a series I'll come back and reread over and over, so this wasn't a goodbye, it was a see you soon.
I absolutely loved this book, and series. It's romcom perfection! I laughed, smiled and swooned my way through it. I will absolutely reread this over and over. I highly recommend this book and this series.
