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 bright idea to convince him to start a new band with me.
Trouble is, our sizzling chemistry in the recording studio is getting harder to ignore, no matter how risky it might be.
Sing sexy songs with the woman you’ve been lusting after? Get up close and personal as you croon to the woman you’ve wanted for years?
Piece of cake. 
Performing with the sweet, sassy and insanely wonderful Ally is like one gigantic obstacle course of challenges for my libido. And my libido is one sexy love song away from kissing her senseless and taking her home.
But, I’m not a serious kind of guy, and she’s not a one-night-stand kind of woman. If we cross the horizontal line, we might risk our sure thing and end up out of tune forever...


  • So good!

    I’m so happy that we don’t have to wait long between this series of standalones because with each book I’m anxiously waiting for the next one to drop on my Kindle! Lauren Blakely is the queen of rom coms and she’s hitting it out of the park with these books! Once Upon A Sure Thing is a fast paced story of Miller and Ally, friends turned lovers. Miller is everything with his love for music and his amazing personality. Ally is fun and can handle Miller like no other. But what sold me? The dialogue between the two...amazing. Hot. Sexy. I cannot say enough about it! Of course, there was a tad bit of drama but it was resolved quickly which I really enjoyed. Overall, Once Upon A Sure Thing was a great read and while I’m looking forward to the next book, I really don’t want the series to end!
  • Fantastic friends to more romance

    By Grinandstampit
    I absolutely fell in love with Miller and Ally. Miller is so supportive of Ally as she is of him. The story line of the Heartbreakers is heartwarming as well. I felt myself rooting for this couple through the book. A must read and a super success for Lauren Blakey. Thanks for a great read.
  • So in love!

    I am so in love with this story! Could not put it down. The connection, the banter...complete perfection.
  • Super cute!

    By I Love Story Time
    Aww...what a super cute read! These Heartbreaker men are adorable! Miller and Ally had such a fun friends-to-lovers-story. Miller has a laid back, easy going personality, but when things became intimate, he was intense and super sexy! Lauren Blakely sure knows how to write some HOT scenes! In the end, I was glad to see everything work out for Ally. That ending with Chloe, brought tears to my eyes. This was such a great read! If you are looking for a light, read-in-one-sitting, sweet and fun love story (with some serious heat), look no further! Once Upon A Sure Thing is the perfect book for you! ♥ Review by Lys

    4☆ I adore friends to lovers romance and this one was so cute! I love the natural chemistry Miller and Ally have. They have this effortlessness to their friendship and blend so well. I feel like them becoming more just felt right. I did like the build up to it and really love them singing together and how that went so smoothly for them. They were friends for so long and couldn't even see what was right in front of them, but man when they found it, it ignited! I loved this sexy side of Miller that suddenly came out will Ally and I loved it, seems to run in this family! They make sense as friends, lovers and a family. Miller is already so involved with Chloe it isn't much of leap for him to be there for her too. I absolutely loved the last few chapters and the fun surprises! Now I really can't wait for Miles book!!
  • A swoony friends to lovers by the queen of the rom com!

    Welp, just another Lauren Blakely book that had me falling head over heels in love. The second book in the Heartbreakers series is so sweet and sexy. I know that if I ever need a pick me up I should look no further than Once Upon a Sure Thing. Seriously, the happy feels I got while reading and after finishing this book is all I ever want to feel. Ally and Miller have insane chemistry! I was so completely enamored with their relationship from the very first interaction. No one writes a friends to lovers quite as well as Lauren Blakely. Their fun and flirty banter was everything!! Quick and addicting, I never wanted it to end. Even before they gave into their desires, it felt like Ally and Miller were meant to be. I am a total fangirl for Hashtag ZimmerHart/ Other Uses for Ribbons/ Hot Stuff. I am obsessed with Miller's happy deposition. He's such a good and joyful guy. You can't help but smile when he appears on the page. Whether he's boat racing with his "little brother" Jackson, singing carols with his brothers, or having skittles taste test with a clerk at the Office of Public Records, Miller Hart was melting my heart into a puddle of love and lust. I feel like Lauren has really upped her game when it comes to the sex scenes. HOLY HOTNESS!! I feel like a standing ovation is necessary here. Any book that can cause an audible, prolonged "fuuuuck" to escape my mouth deserves all the praise. Ribbons and pianos y'all. Ribbons and pianos!! Phew, I need to fan myself just thinking about it. Lauren Blakely is knocking it out of the park with this series. I looooove Once Upon a Real Good Time and Once Upon a Sure Thing. I can't wait until we get Miles story. Swoon. Three sexy musician brothers. Does it get any better?
  • Once Upon A Sure Thing

    This book was absolutely off the charts. Lauren Blakely truly out did herself with this wickedly sexy story that is told with love and humor. Miller is sexy funny loyal and a true heart throb and a retired member of the Heartbreakers an all boy band who wants back in the music business. Ally is beautiful, sensual, and a true friend struggling to make ends meet as a guardian for her niece. Miller is there for her as her friend. When Miller decides to take on a female singing partner sparks fly. The story complicates and you will laugh and cry. You are guaranteed to love Miller and Ally will steel your heart. A great read one you won’t easily forget.
  • Sexy, friends-to-lovers romance. Well done!

    By Lelypop1
    In this second standalone story in the Heartbreakers series, Miller and Ally come together as a singing duet and see each other in a whole new light. It’s a sexy, friends-to-lovers romance with likable character, scorching sex scenes and predictable but sweet storyline. Blakely knows how to tell a story!
  • Drooling!

    By GreyGirl50
    I’m not ashamed to confess I’m one of THOSE people. You know who they are. They’re the shallow folks who judge a book by its’ cover, so go right ahead and call me shallow. I’ll just continue drooling over the perfect pecs, rippling abs and tantalizing V muscles on this book cover while I devour this friends-to-lovers romance and the terrific relationship between Miller, Campbell and Miles and the women in their lives. This series is one of my favorites because all of the main characters are in their 30’s and most of them have children so there are younger secondary characters that enhance the familial atmosphere of this book. Ally and Miller have been friends for 6 years and I happen to think a relationship that starts with friendship and grows into love is very special because it happened to me. (My husband and I will celebrate our 40th anniversary in less than a week.) I’m also a huge fan of audiobooks so discovering Ally’s character makes her living as a narrator made me grin! I read an early copy of this book and all opinions expressed in my voluntary review are completely my own.
  • Banter & Chemistry = Entertaining

    By DecGrl88
    I really loved this one! Best friends to lovers isn’t usually my favorite trope, but I just adored Ally and I also really liked Miller. I’m giving it 4.5 out of 5 stars. This review is for an ARC, and reflects my honest opinion. So I wasn’t 100% sure about Miller at first, because he was kind of like a big kid, but he was such a sweetheart, and a great friend/brother. Ally was also a sweetheart, and what she has done for Chloe was amazing. It made me love her even more. The banter, and eventually the chemistry, between these two was so entertaining to read. I loved seeing characters from the previous book (Campbell, Samantha, Mackenzie, Roxy, etc.). And I’ve got to say, I can’t wait to get my hands on the last book in this trilogy…although I’ll be sad once I’m done reading about these characters. The books are a delight, and such easy reads. You could definitely read each in one sitting if you wanted to, and had the time. The epilogues were super cute, and the thing that happened towards the end of the book made me super excited to see what happens next musically for the brothers. I’ve loved Campbell, and Miller, so I can’t wait to see how much I love Miles! I highly recommend you go and read these books, because they’ll make you smile and swoon.
