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.

I'm a total Heartbreakers groupie!! This book was full of my personal kryptonite. Sexy, single dad? Check. Heroine who is the sister of hero's friend? Check. Adorable kid? Check. I couldn't stop smiling and swooning while reading this book. I loved it from start to finish-and didn't want to see it end.

Roxy was such a fun character for me. I think she had such a unique story to tell and I love how the Author told it. She's smart, sassy and determined. Not to mention, she's strong and determined to march to the beat of her own drum to get things done. I absolutely loved her. I adored watching her interact with Miles, too. Life threw her a curveball and I enjoyed seeing how she handled it.

Miles. Oh. My. Miles. Yes, he's mine. He is such an amazing book boyfriend. Sexy, funny, sweet and did I mention sexy? I'd love to be on the receiving end of some texts from Miles. He had my heart from the start. He's such a nice guy, and with that sexy streak? He's definitely a chicken magnet...and I just loved him.

I have to mention Ben. Some Authors mention that a character has a child and then they're kind of an afterthought. That's not the case here. I love how Ben interacts with both Miles and Roxy-and how he explains things in the way that only a child can. He was adorable and I loved him.

So I love the first kiss couples share. I wait anxiously for it, truly. The first kiss in this book? Oh my! So hot and sexy I was fanning myself while I read it. The connection these two have is so tangible. I enjoyed watching them flirt and fall for one another. It felt so completely natural. Do they have hot sex? Absolutely. But what they have outside the bedroom is just as important and I loved seeing them navigate what a relationship would be like.

The banter between these two? Perfection. I love how they flirt and talk to one another. Like I said, I wouldn't mind being on the receiving end of some texts from Miles. I fully believed everything these two said to each other-both in words and actions.

The supporting characters here are fantastic. It was great to catch up with the characters from the previous books (if you haven't read the others in the series you can still enjoy this. It is a standalone!). I have to admit the relationship between Roxy and her Mom was portrayed so perfectly and I think it's one everyone will be able to relate to-I know I did.

The pacing here was perfect. The plot was one I didn't see coming and I really enjoyed it. I truly didn't want to see this book end but I know this is a series I'll come back and reread over and over, so this wasn't a goodbye, it was a see you soon.

I absolutely loved this book, and series. It's romcom perfection! I laughed, smiled and swooned my way through it. I will absolutely reread this over and over. I highly recommend this book and this series.

Here’s the thing. I could tell you how much I loved Roxy and Miles. Or how perfectly the story was written, or how much I liked the characters and the secondary characters from the other books. Or how much I enjoyed the romance in the story, how hot the scenes between them were, and how much I enjoy books about main characters who shouldn’t be together because…reasons. Lots of them.

I could mention how much I love books that have a forced proximity due to an event that one, or both, of the characters really would rather not attend alone…family reunions, weddings, high school reunions (you know, all of the things that, depending upon who will be there, you pray for a temporarily debilitating disease or work trip to darkest Peru in order to give you a valid excuse to skip it) although, in this case for some inexplicable reason, Miles is looking forward to the reunion…just not all of the women who will be sure to hit on him. And, since he won’t have the distraction of a chicken sandwich (read the book or keep an eye out, as the scene is in some of the promo materials for the book, this made me laugh so hard I snorted coffee) he is going to need something to keep the women distracted…and what better way to do this than a fake girlfriend?

Note to Miles…the fake girlfriend thing goes a LOT better, and is a lot easier to keep “fake” when you aren’t wildly attracted to the person you have as your fake date. And, when there aren’t a few things happening in her life that make you even more attracted to her. While the reader finds out quickly what I mean, I am not going to spoil that here, I will just say that some actions from characters give you a real glimpse into who they are as people, the things that they want, and the things that are important to them.

I’m also a sucker for the fact that the band is back together in this one. It actually is an event that happens at the end of the previous book (and something that makes me say the 2nd book in the series is still my favorite of the 3, if I had to pick just one) so mentioning it in the review for the second was a bit of a spoiler…but totally fair game in this. I am such a sucker for the 3 brothers, and how badly they want to be making music together.

Oh, and as this is in the very first few pages…it’s totally possible to give a cat a bath…without requiring stitches. I totally believe Roxy can do it…as she can clearly do anything.

I enjoyed this title, a lot. I definitely recommend reading the 2 previous books before diving into this one, but this is a standalone, and you can start here if you really want to.
