Looking for your next book boyfriend? Well, step right up because Miller Hart will make you swoon! He's a classic Blakely hero....a sexy alpha with a filthy mouth. But what sets Miller apart from all others is his tenderhearted, loving side. He's like a fine piece of chocolate....firm on the outside (just like his washboard abs) but super gooey and yummy on the inside. Miller liter

It is impossible not to smile while reading about Miller and Ally in Once Upon A Sure Thing. They are honey and sugar dipped in sunshine.

Where Campbell Hart is the older, dirty talking Heartbreaker, Miller is the middle, happy-go-lucky Heartbreaker. I'm now intrigued as to what Miles, the youngest Heartbreaker will be like, but this review isn't about him, it's about dreamy Miller.

Heartbreakers is a series of stand-alones about 3 brothers and once again Lauren Blakely has shown why she is the queen of romantic comedy with this best friends to lovers funny romance. This series has characters you will fall in love with, you will laugh with them and you will feel their pain because as always these guys are easy to connect with. Miller is easy to swoon over he has a sense of humour a dirty mouth and he loves music and it’s his love of music that has him looking for a girl to ...more

I am a huge fan of friends to lovers romance and I absolutely loved Ally and Miller's story! They have been best friends for over six years and have suppressed their feelings of attraction. Now that they have a chance to sing together, their chemistry ignites, and makes it impossible to ignore. There is so much at stake for them, and others if they fail, but they're powerless to resist any longer. Ally and Miller are both great characters. They are kind, thoughtful, funny, and

Hot Stuff!

I loved Campbell and Mackenzie, in Once Upon a Real Good Time. Then Lauren goes and ups her game with the friends to lovers trope with Miller and Ally. I mean how could you not fall in love with these two?

He holds up a finger. "I have a hunch craft stores are frequented by the Fifty Shades crowd." I laugh. "DIY BDSM-ers?" He wiggles his eyebrows. "Ribbons are for tying pretty wrists."

From start to finish, I love the sexy, flirty banter- chemistry between Miller and Ally. I lov

What is it about Best Friends...Especially if they are the opposite sex...Billy Crystal said in When Harry Met Sally...basically all men look at women and think about doing them...That sex is never off the table...But when a man is friends with a woman with no Bang Bang...It seems that this relationship becomes so special, both will do whatever is necessary to hold on to it...Even deny the possibility of being attracted to each other.

~ Miller was in a very famous band with his brothers (the Heartbreakers), but they’ve amicably gone their separate ways. Miller knows he wants to make music again, but he’s floundering a bit on exactly what that will look like.
For the past ten years, Miller has been a big brother to Jackson (who is now 17).

Another fantastic audio and I again have to thank Lauren Blakely, Sebastian York and Andi Arndt for their efforts. This dynamic trio really knows how to satisfy my romantic heart. The pacing is perfect, the characters are awesome and the storyline kept me entertained from start to finish.

Once Upon a Sure Thing by Lauren Blakely is chock-full of sexy, sweet, and swoony GOODNESS! Miller and Ally are two people you will want to root for instantly. Their chemistry and their banter in their friendship felt easy and light, but everything changes when they start singing together. Emotions and bonds grow, vulnerabilities are shared, the line they thought they drew a long time ago…shattered. Six years is a long time staying in the “friend-zone”. The

This was a sweet, charming story about two friends who, of course, (view spoiler).

Nothing special, really. It's your typical, cliche romance. A pretty forgettable read. Now, that's not necessarily a bad thing, it's an easy, fast read and that is perfect for certain moments. I am a bit disappointed though, expected a bit more from Lauren Blakely, but I guess you can't win them all, right?

With each book in this series of standalones, Lauren Blakely solidifies that this is without a doubt my favorite romcom not only of all her books but one of my favorite romcoms ever. She has hit the trifecta of lovable characters, insane chemistry, and equal parts hilarity and steamy goodness. I cannot get enough of the Hart Brothers.

Lauren Blakely has created another hero and heroine to fall in love with. Miller is just swoon worthy with his boyish

It has been a long couple of weeks since we read Once Upon A Real Good Time, and I have been sitting by my kindle waiting for One Upon A Sure Thing to get here.

We got a bit of a Ally and Miller in Campbell's book, but what Ms Blakely has given us is so much more than I was looking for.

Angela (Reading Frenzy Book Blog)
This friends-to-lovers story is low on drama and high on humor—just how I like it. Lauren Blakely continues to impress with this series about three brothers who used to be members of a famous teen boy band. Single parenthood is integral to each brother’s story, and these sexy former pop stars are blessedly allergic to one-night stands.

It is impossible to dislike Miller. The man is perpetually upbeat about life in general and wrings every ounce of enjoyment out of the simplest of tasks. He is pr

Friends to lovers is one of my very favorite tropes and Once Upon a Sure Thing did not disappoint! Ally and Miller were introduced in Once Upon a Real Good Time, but this book can definitely be enjoyed without reading that first. I do recommend it though because previous characters do appear throughout this interconnected standalone series.

Ally and Miller were such a sweet and sexy couple. I loved their banter and all the little things they did for each other. Their chemistry was always simmerin

After listening to the Imperfect love series by Kendall Ryan, I knew this one could only be better and hot damn, I loved it even more than I thought I would. I don't know why I enjoyed this story so much but it was just the perfect friend to lovers / rockstar romance story. I might have enjoyed this one even more than the first book in the series which I don't have a lot of memories of unfortunately. This one, I hope, might stay in my mind a little longer.

I love a good "friends to lovers" romance and Lauren Blakely's Once Upon A Sure Thing delivered with a hot, sexy, realistic story about Miller and Ally. Two best buds who awaken something when they sing together. Music is passion. Am I right? Grab some wine and your headphones....

This is the second audiobook in the Heartbreakers series, featuring the Campbell brothers, all members of a popular boys band before it was disbanded. While you won't want to miss a single swoon-worthy moment or giggle

Friends to lovers is one of my absolute all time favourite tropes in a romance novel. I was definitely intrigued with Ally and Miller from their parts in Once Upon a Real Good Time, and boy oh boy, was I right to want to know them.

This book was HOT. Sizzling. The build up, the banter, just everything about these two is amazing. The anticipation was killing me. And when they’re together? Holy moly wow, hot as hell!

Miller and Ally, the main couple, make beautiful music together, in and out of the recording studio. Their full history these past six years gets revealed, as they both eventually get over the knucklehead notion falling for one another and letting that love come to life will likely result in the death of their friendship. That is the gist of this storyline, folks, and nothing else really majorly happens.

So if you want a sure bet on an uncomplicated, friends to lovers, smexy read without a lot o

I am once again a puddle of pure love from reading this book. This is book 2 in the Heartbreakers series, they are stand alones but go together as far as the characters intertwining. This is younger brother Miller Hart's chance at true love. He misses singing with his two brothers, Campbell and Miles. Miller is the extravert and needs interaction with people. He misses what they had and even though he has tried to form a band or two it just hasn't been the same since he and his brothers split th ...more

If you tell me Sebastian York is narrating anything, I'll listen to it. Instruction manuals, a math textbook, I don't care. His voice is so nice and he does a fantastic job, pair him with Andi Arndt and you know it's going to be great.
The story was cute, I liked that it was a friends to lovers romance and both Miller and Ally are good people who deserved to be happy. We got to see a bit of Campbell and Mackenzie too and I'm thinking the next book will be the last brother finding his match. The

They are red hot, scorching if you will. The only problem is they don't even know just how effing good they are together...yet.
Till one day Honey Lavender walks in...then game over! Miller never stood a chance. One look at her and it hit him like bam. Right smack in the heart. His filthy, filthy, mouth did not even know how to process what was happening to him. This dirty talking fool goes from zero to turned on in less

This second book in the series follows the romance between Heartbreaker brother Miller and his best friend Ally. This was a nice, sweet read unfortunately it was also a carbon copy of book one only with the names changed. I found Miller's character immature and unwilling to grow up and let go of being apart of a band with his brothers in his younger days, he didn't really do anything just played like a teenager with no responsibilties while Ally worried about being a good parent to her niece and ...more

Another fun and sexy romp with the Heatbreakers! This time around with Miller, the middle of three brothers who achieved boy band fame in the 90s.

Miller is the fun brother. He’s a carefree, happy guy who always has a smile and a joke, and rarely lets anything get him down. It was his older brother, Campbell, who willingly stepped away from the spotlight due to family reasons, therefore ending the band. And while Miller whole-heartedly supported the decision, he misses the band. He misses

As a huge fan of Lauren Blakely, romantic comedies, AND friends-to-lovers romance, I was eagerly anticipating the release of Once Upon a Sure Thing. After reading Once Upon a Real Good Time and meeting Campbell’s brother, Miller, and his best friend, Ally, my romance-reader radar detected a bit of a flirtation, so I was particularly excited to explore their relationship.
