Picture this - I’m ready to win back the love of my life, and I’m going big this time. We’re talking boom box, sing her name in the rain, let the whole damn neighborhood know I'm good and ready this time around. After all, if you're going to grand gesture the ever-loving hell out of a second chance, you need to pull out all the stops. There’s only one little problem. My college girlfriend isn't the one who shows up when I play my "I'll do anything to win you back" tune. The woman who flings open the second-floor window tells me my ex doesn’t live here anymore.

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. And there's one more little itty-bitty thing - he's never asked me on a date. That is, until he asks me to be his plus-one when his band plays at his high school reunion. It shouldn't be a big deal. After all, we're just friends, and no one is giving us our own hashtag. Except me....

Once Upon a Wild Fling was my favorite. I absolutely loved them all, so that’s saying a lot.

Miles Hart is the youngest of the Hart brothers. He definitely watched and learned how to make a woman swoon from his voice to his thoughtfulness. Not to mention his devastatingly good looks and the fact that he’s an amazing dad.

Roxy is a strong independent woman who hasn’t had the best of luck in love. She is best friends with Mackenzie, who is Miles’ brothers Campbell’s fiancé. Roxy’s brother is also Miles’ financial advisor and good friend. She immediately fell for Miles and his son Ben, but knew she was on a path that made a relationship impossible. Watching the development from friends to more was wonderful.

This is the sweetest love story. It has all the Lauren Blakely steam and humor, but it just melted me! Add in the amazing narrators and it just doesn’t get any better!

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.

Once Upon A Sure Thing is another spectacular book from Lauren Blakely. We first meet Miller and Ally in Once Upon A Real Good Time. Miller and Ally are best friends. They are connected by their love of video games, bananagrams, and music. This book is fun, flirty, and sexy. Miller and Ally find themselves wanting to explore more than just their amazing friendship. You must read this friend to lovers romance to find out what happens if they cross that line. 5 fantastic stars!!

Sebastian and Andi’s narration really bring this book to life!

That smoking hot one-night stand with a former rock star? Turns out, he's my son's new 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.

There isn’t one thing I did not love about Once Upon A Real Good Time. What’s not to love about a hot musician/music teacher/super dad! Campbell is the total package. Whispered words across the stage had Mackenzie falling and contemplating a one night stand. This single mom had no intentions on mingling, but things might change. These two are absolutely perfect together both in and out of the bedroom. Hot-Hot-Hot!!! There was no way one night could ever be enough. An unexpected discovery made things a lot harder and a lot more interesting! Get ready for the sexy times texts and more that will leave you wanting more!

The narrators really brought this book to life. I could listen to Sebastian and Andi all day long!

Experience all the feels in this unforgettable second-chance standalone romance from number-one New York Times best-seller Lauren Blakely! I didn't break her heart, and she didn't break mine - we broke each other's. I never stopped loving her, but time and distance played its cruel role in ripping us apart three years ago when she moved halfway around the world. Now after all those endless miles away, she's returned...but I'm not the guy I was before.

Unbreak My Heart was and wasn’t what I expected, but was amazing. This book was so emotional and absolutely broke my heart. Andrew’s story was not easy. He suffered so much loss in his life that he was on the verge of breaking. But his loss was a journey that led him to see the power of love and friendship. This story had me crying my eyes out both tears of sadness and joy. This is a beautiful unforgettable story!

The narrators did an amazing job bringing this story to life. Listening made all the emotions even more real!

April Hamilton wants you to know she hasn’t been on Craigslist since that time she sold her futon after college. She doesn’t even spend that much time online. And even if she did, she would not be looking up personal ads. But going home alone for her family's summer reunion is an invitation for every single relative to butt into her personal life. She simply can’t handle another blind date with the butcher, the baker, or the candlestick maker from her hometown. So when she finds the Craigslist ad for a boyfriend-for-hire, she’s ready to pay to play.

The Real Deal was one of those dreams come true books. As I was listening to it, I was thinking how cool it would be to have this happen. When you least expect it and it’s the farthest thing from what you thought you want and needed and bam, you find yourself hoping and wishing what you are pretending is “the real deal.” The Real Deal is hot, sexy, swoony, and sweet. It’s also filled with well meaning, over the top family that makes the story. I think I wanted it to be real even more than April and Theo!!
Erin and Zachary really brought this book to life!

I only wanted a tattoo. A mark on my body to remind me of who I used to be. Something to hold onto when I started my penance for all the things I'd done wrong, the bad choices I'd made by the time I turned 19. Instead, I found a night of possibility, of truth, of hope for the future. And the most intense physical connection I've ever had. The only one I've ever had, and one I will never forget.

This is a fantastic collaboration between Kathy Coopmans and HJ Bellus. This stand alone second chance sports romance with a hint of mafia makes for one hot story. The writing was seamless and you couldn’t tell when one ended and the other began.

Liam and Justice immediately won my heart. Justice’s selfless, undying love is what pulled them apart. She loves her family, but doesn’t want who they are to affect his future. Being in a mafia family was so hard for her because she doesn’t agree with all their choices. When Liam has the chance to confront Justice he isn’t prepared for the feelings that hit him. He has been angry since she left him in college and he was determined that she wouldn’t be able to affect him. Boy was he wrong. These two have so much chemistry! Even when angry all you can feel is the love between them.

Full Contact is filled with so much family love, togetherness and total support. I loved this book!!

I'll say this about Christian - he made one hell of a first impression. When I first saw the strapping man, he was doing handstands naked on a dock along the canal. His crown jewels were far more entertaining than anything else I'd seen on the boat tour, so I did what any curious woman would do - I took his photo.

Let me tell you, Lauren Blakely just keeps writing swoon worthy, sexy romantic comedies that really pack a punch.

Christian and Elise were so fun to fall for. I could definitely make Part-Time Lover a full-time binge read or listen to over and over. Lauren Blakely had me at hot Danish doing naked handstands. But more than that, it was the person behind the handstand. The no expectations and no strings attached arrangement was way harder than either Christian or Elise expected. Two people who give of them selves to help others may just end up hurting them.

I loved throwing myself into their story in the city of love. You know a book is good when you find yourself talking to the characters. Let’s just say, I did a lot of talking!

The narrators did a fantastic job and really brought this story to life!

The average song is three and a half minutes long; those three and a half minutes could lead to a slow blink, a glimpse of the past, or catapult the soul into heart-shattering nostalgia. At the height of my career, I had the life I wanted, the life I'd always envisioned. I'd found my tempo, my rhythm. Then I received a phone call that left me off key.

Kate Stewart is an absolute literary genius. This woman can write anything and make me fall in love. She has a way of twisting my emotions and crawling into every fiber of my being. Drive was one of those books that had me from page 1 and did not let go. It will take you on quite the emotional journey. This is a love triangle that had my heart pulled in two directions. I couldn’t even begin to imagine what it would be like to be Stella. Oh wait, yes I can because Kate Stewart makes you feel every darn emotion she puts into this book. You will laugh, cry, scream, swoon and fall epically and madly in love with this book. It’s 110% must read or listen to over and over again. Don’t skip listening to the play list that goes with Drive. You will fall and feel that much more! Drive is way more than 5 stars fabulous!!
