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. NOT.
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...

Lauren Blakely has another chart topper on her hands with Once Upon a Sure Thing! I absolutely devoured this book in a matter of hours; I was so hooked on Ally and Miller's story. This friends to lovers story is deliciously sexy and sweet; filled with the heart and humor I love from this Author.

Friends to lovers is in my top three favorite tropes, and honestly, nobody does it better than Lauren Blakely. I absolutely believed that Miller and Ally were friends before they became more. They have such an easy way with one another, teasing (sometimes innocently) and always have each other's backs. I'd love to go sing some karaoke with them, or watch them play video games.

The transition to lovers here was so well done. OMG their first kiss? I seriously melted into a puddle. I smiled and swooned....and fanned the heck out of myself while reading. The heat between these two just crackled off the page. I definitely wouldn't have minded being Ally a few times in this book let me tell you.

Speaking of, I truly loved these characters for who they were as individuals. They both have these huge hearts that they have to guard and protect, and watching them each take down their walls? So gratifying! I can personally relate to Ally in particular at the moment and I loved how Lauren Blakely explained her situation. Miller? He's one of my favorite book boyfriends. Kind, sweet and sexy? Sign me up.

The supporting characters in here had me grinning. I loved the pacing of this book. Was it fast? Yes, but it was absolutely perfect. It just flowed. The writing is sharp, smart and on point. I don't know how this Author keeps coming up with such perfect banter...but I'm not complaining.

I'm not a big fan of books becoming movies/musicals etc. But this series? I'd love to see it on a stage or screen (this is just my opinion!). That could be because of a certain character in this book and his project, but I think it'd be really interesting.

Reading this book had me feeling like a little kid waiting to press record to catch my favorite song off the radio so I could listen over and over. This book left me absolutely grinning and I loved it from start to finish. I can't wait for the next one! I absolutely recommend this book!

I'm a sucker for a happy ending. Heck, I think all of us who read romance are. And, to a certain extent, aren't we all? While I can't give it away, this book not only gave the happy ending I wanted for Miller and Ally, but for someone else too. A someone who had just a little bit of his happy missing from a previous book. (I'm not telling more...but I couldn't be happier with the ending of this if I'd written it myself.

This is a best friends to lovers. Miller and Ally have known one another for years, and as this often goes, have been attracted to one another...without telling each other. But, when mildly forced by circumstances to see each other in a different way, they realize that they also want to be more tham friends.

I really loved how the change in perception happens organically, but that there's a definite point where the change happens. While it's too much of a spoiler to get into details, I love the idea of changing who you appear to be resulting in people seeing you for who you really are, and then discovering they always have.

I could mention the humor in this, it's perfect and funny. The NYC setting which, as I just returned from there I loved. ..dunne characters, the story arc, the steamy connection. It's all there and it's perfect.

But the thing I really want ro talk about is how much I enjoyed this. I smiled the entire time. I loved every bit of this story, even the heartbreaking bits, as you just know it's going to be ok. There are those books that you just love. That you are sad to see end, because you were so involved you feel connected to the characters and the story. There are books that are good, and books that climb into your heart from the first page. This was both.

If I'd started this at night, it would have kept me up until I finished it. (Although, I did totally blow off doing my laundry, so that sort of counts.)

I loved and recommended this title.


She sings like a sinner. She sings like an angel. She sounds like whiskey and sugar. I’ve only ever known her for her church-bell voice, but now she’s a glorious mix of dirty and sweet, and I never knew she had it in her.

But I can’t marinate in this change-up. It’s showtime for me.

Grabbing the mic, I dive into my first line as I gaze into those blue eyes of my friend. Only I have to think of her as Honey, so I sing to the new woman about how I can’t do without her, how I need her now.

Something is in the air between us when we sing, something charged. Something that hasn’t been there before. Stage chemistry.

I move closer as if I’m drawn by the pull of gravity that I have no control over. We lock eyes and everyone else fades away. I’m still in shock that I’m loving singing a song with my best friend.

That’s what terrifies me. Especially since we sound good together, and we move well together.

Maybe we even look good together, as we belt out this hot-as-fuck duet, and for the first time we’re not butchering a holiday tune or destroying “Total Eclipse of the Heart” at karaoke. As she moves closer to me, we sing the final chorus like it’s going out of style, and when the music softens, I can’t resist. I finger a strand of her blonde wig, the coconut scent from her lotion floating into my nose.

Reluctantly, I let the hair fall.

Clapping rings loud in my ears.

Jackson, Miles, and Campbell give a standing O. Jackson holds up his phone, pointing to it, letting me know he caught it on video.

“Chemistry,” the guys all shout, practically in unison.

But I’m not supposed to have chemistry with my best friend.

That’s the problem.

“What the hell just happened here?” I whisper to Ally, befuddled.

Her mouth opens, and her eyes go wide, and she blurts out, “I have an appointment. I need to go.”

She takes off, leaving in her wake a trail of chemistry and coconut and confusion.
