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.
Add it on Goodreads!
I sit down again, scrubbing my hand over my jaw. My son looks at me, his eyes big.
“Daddy, you’re going to play at your high school,” Ben practically shouts.
I hold up my hands. “Whoa. Not so fast.”
He crinkles his brow. “But you told everyone. You said you would. That’s so cool that you told everyone you were going to become a rock star, and you did. And now you can go back and play for them.”
William parks his chin in his hands and stares at me, batting his eyes. “What would Ed Sheeran do?”
I sigh, partly because I’m not sure if I’ll run into the same situations I try to avoid—like the come-ons at the Bingley School. But honestly, the reunion intrigues me. I loved high school. Loved the friends, loved the good times, loved how it all rolled into some of the best moments of my life. Playing at the reunion also sounds like exactly what I should do—honor the promise I made fifteen years ago. “Looks like I have a reunion to go to.”
But when William’s sister walks into the café, I’m not thinking of high school or teenage years. I’m thinking about how sexy she looks in those jeans and that green top that slopes down one shoulder, revealing pale skin I’d like to—
I slam on the brakes.
She’s your buddy’s sister. And you’re not interested in anything serious because serious sucks.
“Hey, Roxy,” I say, then do my damnedest to strike the dirty thoughts from my mind as we chat and William tells her all about my reunion promise.
Even though I’m thinking about her legs most of the time.
For the record, it’s really fucking hard not to think about something when you know you’re not supposed to—that pretty much guarantees it’s the only thing in your head.
But once the food arrives, the chicken sandwich is so insanely tasty it distracts me from imagining how my friend’s sister would look naked.
God bless chicken sandwiches.

This one is my favorite one from the three books! Lauren Blakely definitely left the best one for the end!
I seriously loved Miles and Roxy’s story! It is equally sexy, funny, sweet and flirty. I liked how both Roxy and Miles are mature and know what they want in life. Having experienced some hardships, they come out stronger and wiser. The maturity of the characters saved us from unnecessary drama; there were just the right amount of it!
This is a single dad, best friend’s little sister romance, both tropes I absolutely love to read! I’m all about family and friends, and I liked how both the lead characters felt the same way! Their chemistry is amazing and their banter and sexual innuendos are hilarious!! To be honest the real star of the story is Ben, Miles’s son! He’s so adorable 😍
I was a little sad to see these brothers’ stories come to an end. I’m hoping to find out more about them in the future!!!
