It's so easy being best friends with a gorgeous, talented, charming guy.

Said no woman ever. Except me.

My friendship with Miller is a sure thing — he’s my plus one, my emergency contact, and my shoulder to lean on. He’s also been by my side helping me raise one helluva awesome kid who’s the center of my world.

Nothing will change our easy breezy friendship. Until I have the

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

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

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.

Once Upon A Sure Thing is the second book in Lauren Blakely's feel good romcom Heartbreaker series. This book is fil

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

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 love th

Ally and Miller.

They've been best friends for six years. They do everything together.

But they never crossed that friendship line to romance.

And now they might add co-workers to their resumé. Miller wants to go back to being a part of a band like he used to be with his brothers. But this time he wants to try a duet with a woman (mostly because his brother Campbell doesn't want to revive the band).

Enter Ally. They tried it a few times at karaoke bars or for christmas, but he was just to rockish fo

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.

“Let me just kiss you for a while.”

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 c

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.

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

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!

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

Miller & Ally will have you mumming a tune...a tune of sexy, dirty desires!
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
4 stars

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. I mean, who wouldn’t want to dive in to a romance between a sexy, fun-loving rock star and the woman who keeps him on his toes ...more

This is the story of the middle brother in the Heartbreakers trio, Miller. He has been entertaining himself as best as he can since their brother band broke up, but still has a void in his life without consistent music. But he covers it up by being he happy-go-lucky, energetic, funny, and playful guy.

His best friend, Ally, is doing her best to take care of her niece and to be an independent, good role model. She is smart, loving, and dependable. Miller is the comic relief in her life,

“After all these years, I understand what it means to be a heartbreaker. Or really, I understand what it is to be heartbroken.”

A couple of friends. Best friends. Singing together sexy songs wich talking about love. What could go wrong?

After the end of the band Heartbreakers, Miller has not yet found his place in the world. His younger brother Miles is in a successful solo career, while his older brother Campbell is happy with his teaching career and his performances at a local bar.

This time, Once Upon a Sure Thing caught my heart (pun intended)! I didn't expect to fall in love with this book, but I did!

Ally and Miller have been best friends for 6 years and I love that this was not an unrequited romance but a true friends to lovers romance! It was obvious, even in the previous book that Ally and Miller had chemistry and I loved how their romance and their feelings slowly developed!

I was a little surprised at the twist in the end! I didn't expect that! I can't wait to read

Ally and Miller’s story was sooo sweet! So sweet and sexy and fun.
I’m such a huge fan of friends-to-lovers romances and theirs was about as good as you can get! I loved their friendship, and like the two of them I was a little worried about what would happen if they decided to take things in a different direction. But this is Lauren Blakely we’re talking about, so I don’t know why I even had a minute of worry! There was so much love between them, it was only natural things moved beyond frien
