Lauren Blakely saved the best for last with Once Upon a Wild Fling! I absolutely loved Miles and Roxy's story! It was sweet, flirty, sexy, and adorkably fun! Even though these characters were introduced in the previous books in this series, it can certainly be enjoyed as a standalone.

One thing I love about the Heartbreakers series is that the characters are a little older and more mature. They've already lived through some of life's ups and downs and have come out stronger (though somewhat scarr

I am a bundle of romantic comedy reading bliss today courtesy of the super-talented storyteller, Lauren Blakely, and her completely captivating Heartbreakers series. These stories were exactly the kinds of feel-good, made-my-heart-race, smiled-the-whole-time romances that I love to read. Deliciously sexy, totally swoon-worthy and utterly charming heroes paired with witty and smart heroines with a few cute, bright kids (and some pets!) swirled into steamy romances are my drugs of choic

Once Upon a Wild Fling is that beautiful ray of sunshine just when you need it most. This last book in the Heartbreakers trilogy just might be my favorite. Miles Hart, single Dad, 'chicken' magnet and talented musician is as swoony as they get. Sure I loved brothers Campbell and Miller, but Miles, he has that subtle charm about him that is truly contagious. But perhaps it's the way he is with his son Ben that makes him the sexiest Hart of all. OMGoodness, that father/son relationship is almost b ...more

Sometimes a series can be Just Right... It can know exactly what types of feels it is going to produce for its readers... and hold true to the unwritten promise it gave. It takes each storyline, weaves a specific story, and allows the reader to bask in the endorphin high of feeling so happy with what they read.

Lauren Blakely more than delivered with this series. She took the idea of older characters who have lived a life and had grown from their ex

This was by fun audio read for this week.

Roxy has recently come to the realisation that she really wants to have a family. The time feels right and not having a boyfriend doesn’t factor into it. She knows the time is perfect to bring a child into her world. When her brother’s best mate, Miles, asks her to be his plus one at his high school reunion she is happy to help him out.

Miles is gorgeous, plays in a successful band and is a single dad to his son Ben. Agreeing to help him out is a no braine

A Wild Fling...becomes a wee bit more

Another fantastic Lauren Blakely treat that left me grinning. I absolutely loved that we got a glimpse into this couple's future and their happy ever after.

The narrators do an amazing job and I really feel like these two work to each other's strengths. It flowed well and the chemistry between the main characters was well portrayed.

I really loved the Heartbreakers series and I'm sad that there are no more Hart's to find love.

Oh my word Lauren Blakely does it again; I loved how this book was not only a single dad but that he was so freaking EPIC I can’t even. He fell in love with the woman and didn’t care for anything but who she was.

Ahh, it’s so hard not to give spoilers.

I love the other two Heartbreaker novels but I think this might be my favorite.
Roxy knew what she wanted and she does something about it she doesn’t let anyone’s judgment of her sway her. She knew what she was doing was right for her. She stands

Once Upon a Wild Fling solidifies that the Hart brothers officially own my heart, and Lauren Blakey has written my favorite romcom series EVER. These books not only tell a tale of romance but they also tell a tale of second chances for families.

Miles is the epitome of a single dad hero! I LOVE him! Not just the because he is hot or because he is famous or many of the other reasons, but because he loves his son. Every moment we see with him just
4.5 “chicken-magnet” stars

Love, love, love this book! A single dad rockstar, a fun, feisty and pregnant heroine, a fake relationship and a whole lot of chemistry… so much win!

Miles is the youngest of the Hart brothers – a trio of singing siblings who hit the big time during the 90s as The Heartbreakers. Miles was the only one to continue singing after the band broke up, and he has gone on to create a hugely successful solo career, touring the world and performing for millions. But he’s now home

At about 20%, we find out that Roxy is deliberately pregnant. Because she wants a baby and the only dates she finds are losers. So she's setting herself up as a single mother on purpose. She has a degree from an Ivy League school and owns her own business and we hear that she's careful and meticulous. So you'd think she'd read the studies about family and child health and know that she has pretty much chosen the worst possible circumstances for herself and her child. And if she hasn't then that' ...more

Miles Hart is a single Dad, and he's been crushing on Roxy Sterling forever. But her brother is his friend and managing business partner. The man is a financial guru. He can't risk messing that up.

Roxy and Miles are good friends, that doesn't mean she hasn't noticed how off the charts sexy he is.  The single Dad and friend of her brother may get her panties in a knot, but the man has never asked her out. She has been relegated to little sister.  When, Miles asks Roxy to be his plus one at his re

ARC kindly received in exchange for an honest review.

As always, Blakely has provided us with another unputdownable and addictive story. I literally sped through this in one sitting, staying up so that I could finish it.

Miles and Roxy were such lovable characters, and the chemistry and connection between them was amazing. The way they act with each other, and the ease of their interactions was just perfect. Not to mention that we also have Ben, who can I just say, is damn adorable!

And you know, I don't quite know how to explain what the problem with these books is, other than...the author's style apparently just doesn't resonate with me. Because parts of this story were sweet and cute and I liked them a lot but as a whole...maybe it's because it's the third book in this series and I can now see that all of them follow the same pattern. Then, there's the weakness of conflict that's just...irritating, especially when you read pretty much the same thi

5 Best Social Experiment Stars

While reading this book, I found myself thinking that there really wasn't a hero from Lauren that I didn't swoon for.

Miles was no exception. His big heart, honesty and sweetness made me weak in the knees. I also adored Roxy, she was a brilliant woman, who knew what she wanted, and knew how to get it.
"I like, too, that he’s unabashed about drinking me in. That he’s shameless in the way he stares. He raises his gaze to my face, and his blue irises are fiery again"

I’ve absolutely loved and enjoyed every book in Lauren Blakely’s Heartbreakers series, but Once Upon a Wild Fling has to go down as my FAVORITE of the series! Miles is just swoony and delicious, Roxy is strong and so loyal, and Ben…my god, Miles’ beautiful son absolutely stole the show! I devoured this ‘brother’s best friend’ romance so quickly that the minute I was finished, I wanted to start it all over again!

If you’ve been following along with Lauren Blakely’s Heartbreakers Series and you’ve read your fair share of romance novels, you probably saw Miles and Roxy’s story coming a mile away, right? Just because I suspected the two would be paired together the minute Roxy mentioned Miles and her brother in the same sentence (helloooo friend’s sister trope), doesn’t make it any less exciting having my suspicion confirmed. Especially when said friend’s sister romance is also a rock star romance AND a sin ...more

So I guess I never finished a review for this when I read it… like eight weeks ago. Whoops. I just have a bunch of random notes of things I liked and comments about how hard it is to talk about this book with giving a huge spoiler right off the bat. So this review will be brief, to say the least.

It's the baby brother's turn for a book and if you are anything like me and have just fallen in love with the other two Hart brothers, then just wait until you get a piece of Miles. I loved him just as much and would never be able to choose between the three.

Miles is back in New York to put down some roots after going solo for a while. He is a single dad, funny, charming, and his son is his number one. Being burned once was enough for him to swear off relationships for a while. But

The last of the trio of brothers to find their mate, but possibly the best! Witty, endearing, sexy, sad and so much more is wrapped into this romance book to keep you delighted and entertained for hours! The narration is outstanding so you once again get lost in the story and enjoy it even more.

This whole series was cute and fun. The books are short and get right to the point. The characters are sweet and click well and I liked the addition of the kids so when the couples get together, they're a family. Miles is a famous singer, but he keeps down to earth and is a great father to his 5 year old son, Ben. Roxy is pregnant by a sperm donor and of course happens to meet a hot, single guy. Miles and Roxy had great chemistry and I loved seeing him care for her and get excited to go to her d ...more

Oh. My. God. Lauren Blakely has done it again! Just when I thought her books couldn't possibly get any better. Once Upon A Wild Fling is steamy hot, witty, sweet, fun and absolutely heartwarming. It's complete and utter perfection with endearing characters and an addicting plot. From beginning to end, I found myself smiling, laughing and swooning like crazy.

Lauren Blakely has left the best till last with the Hart brothers.

I have been eager for Miles Hart's book since we first met him in Campbell's book, and I was not disappointed.

I mean single dad? Check! (and hot!)

Friends to lovers? Check!

Sexual tension up the wazoo? Check!

Miles and Roxy's story was all kinds of adorable. I just can't with them!

Once Upon a Wild Fling is a sweet and swoony single-dad romance. I’ve really enjoyed the three books in this series, the Hart brothers definitely live up to the Heartbreakers name! And Miles, the baby of the fam, might just be the best of the bunch. He’s such a dedicated, hands-on dad, I just loved that about him. You can hardly blame Roxy for falling for Miles, even as she did everything she could to avoid it...he is definitely a chicken magnet. And with Ben, his little chicken nugget, by his s ...more

Lauren Blakely saved the best for last! Miles is the last Hart brother to get his story. He’s a sexy rockstar and a single dad. His son Ben, is his reason for living and my heart swooned over how Miles is with his son.

Now that the Heartbreakers are finally back together, they have agreed to play at Miles’ high school reunion. He’s really looking forward to playing and showing his classmates he really made it as a rockstar, but he’s not looking forward to all the women he knows will be hi
