Once Upon a Real Good Time (Heartbreakers #1) by Lauren Blakely



That smoking hot one-night stand with a former rock star?
Turns out he's my son's new music teacher. Oops.
But I didn't know that the night I met Campbell. All I knew was he played my body the same way he played a guitar — like he owned it.
My libido is still high-fiving me after being self-served for too many years, and we’re both ready for another night or two of fun, especially since we don’t just have chemistry in bed — we connect over everything.
That is, until I learn he’s the man who’ll be coming to my house twice a week to teach my son — the best music lessons money can buy.
Time to turn down the volume on our shenanigans. Only that’s easier said than done.
I can rock a guitar solo in front of thousands, I can write chart-topping tunes, and I can absolutely stop thinking about my student’s mother naked.
After all, I’m a single parent too, and I know what it’s like to put your kid first. That’s what I do every damn day.
Trouble is, now that I’ve had Mackenzie, it’s hard — and I do mean hard — to stop wanting her. Harder too when I get to know her, and learn she’s an awesome mom, a great friend, and, oh yeah, she happens to get along perfectly with my daughter.
All we have to do is set some rules. No dating, no nookie when the kids are around, and no one gets hurt.
It’s all working out beautifully. Until we start breaking the rules, one by one.
Making music with her in the bedroom is easy. But will we be more than just a real good time when the music stops?

Once Upon a Real Good Time by Lauren Blakely can be read as a standalone, but is also book one of her new Heartbreakers series.  A sexy & funny contemporary romance, Blakely delivers another fan favorite full of "Desire and happiness..." With a leading lady after my own heart "She's sexy and clever with a side of awkward." & a leading man with a big... heart, who believes in paying it forward. 
Sparks fly instantly in this super hot, romantic, funny, witty & sweetly heart warming page turner.  A story of overcoming tragedy, & putting those you love first.  About parenthood of the unconventionally beautiful kind, coming of age for kids & parents alike "...the big love I want to cherish always."  Finding bonds you never imagined & carving out a wonderful life from "unexpected moments turned into welcome opportunities."
I love the way Blakely continues to include New York City as a character all it's own.  The way she pushes her characters through struggles we can all relate to - the come out the other side & "Go for it."
