This Story Is Sexy

Publisher's Summary

A brand new sexy stand-alone romantic comedy from number one New York Times best-selling Author Lauren Blakely! Includes a bonus short story narrated by a full cast!

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.

I have three good reasons to keep my hands off Roxy Sterling - her brother’s my business manager; 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. 

My brain knows there’s no way for us to work, but tell that to my big mouth. Because the second she plants a hot, sexy kiss on me, I have the bright idea to ask her to keep being my plus one - turning one night into a few. 

What’s the harm in spending a little more time with her and having her by my side at all these events? Nothing at first, until I learn exactly how risky we might be.

This audiobook includes the bonus short story A Little Big Rock, produced exclusively in audio for this title and narrated by a full cast including Andi Arndt, Sebastian York, Joe Arden, and Erin Mallon!

BEST ONE OF THE SERIES!
Man I loved this book! I have a weak spot for single dads and friends to lovers so this book hit all the right buttons for me. And this single dad went above and beyond in my opinion. I really enjoyed the relationship between Miles & Roxy, they were honest with each other about their feeling, no silly immature games. I loved that what Roxy had going on in her life didn't change anything for Miles and he jumped in with both feet. That was the best part of this book for me. Oh and I can't forget to mention how funny this book was, I laughed so many times especially at Ben!!

I love how this entire series has played out and that the characters were all adults without the unnecessary drama many authors add to their story just to mix it up. I prefer no drama, true love, mature characters and hot sex ... This book had all of this times 10! I also love that even though the characters connect, each book is a stand alone. Perfect, Perfect & Perfect!!!

The narration was great but I expect nothing less from these two narrators. It is so obvious to me that Lauren Blakely is an audiobook listener herself just by her casting choices. To me it almost feels like she writes her characters for the narrators instead of trying to match a narrator to the characters after the book is done.

The extra's were also an awesome addition to this audiobook. Little Big Rock was so much fun with all 4 narrators, it made me want to do a re-listen of the Big Rock series. Also the sneak peek at Unzipped was such a tease and now I'm just anxiously waiting for that book ;)

5 Chicken Magnet Stars!

Lauren Blakely saved the best for last with Once Upon a Wild Fling! I absolutely loved Miles and Roxy's story! It was sweet, flirty, sexy, and adorkably fun! Even though these characters were introduced in the previous books in this series, it can certainly be enjoyed as a standalone. Sebastian York and Andi Arndt bring Miles and Roxy to life so well. They were the perfect duo for the Heartbreakers series and I loved experiencing each of these stories in audio.

One thing I love about the Heartbreakers series is that the characters are a little older and more mature. They've already lived through some of life's ups and downs and have come out stronger (though somewhat scarred) from their battles. The characters know what they want and there isn't any unnecessary drama or back and forth. Once Upon a Wild Fling was part friends to lovers, brother's little sister taboo, and single parent romance. Miles and Roxy had amazing chemistry and I loved how devoted they both were to their families and friends. I loved their sexy banter and innuendo and how their attraction was always simmering under the surface. Ben was absolutely adorable and I have to say stole the show any time he was on the page. There is some angst, but it's understandable considering the baggage and history that Miles and Roxy have when it comes to relationships. I loved that the drama wasn't overblown though and that both recognized their errors and worked quickly to make their intentions clear. The epilogue was incredibly sweet and was a wonderful ending for this blended family. I wouldn't mind an extended epilogue further down the road though with updates on all of the Hart siblings. ;)

Another thing I love about these audios is that the text messages are read in duet style narration. Sebastian and Andi's voices mesh seamlessly! The bonus novella Little Big Rock performed by 4 (YES, 4 narrators) in the duet style at the end of the book was a fantastic treat! Each character had their own voice and you really can't get any better than hearing Sebastian York, Andi Arndt, Joe Arden, and Erin Mallon all together.

Once Upon a Wild Fling is a light and feel good rom com that you're sure to love!

5 Wild & Sexy Stars!

I can not get enough of these Hart brothers! Miles is everything you want in a hero. Besides being a famous rock star, he's charming, funny, humble, and a loving father. When he needs a buffer for a coming event, a certain sexy red head, who is off limits, comes to mind. Roxy is his business managers sister. She is sweet, kind, brave, and focused on her future. When they become each others 'plus one', their chemistry explodes. But Miles has been burned before, and when his son falls for Roxy too, he fears he may not be the Heartbreaker this time. I loved Miles, his adorable son Ben, and Roxy so much! Miles and Roxy just click with the same desires and goals, and their chemistry is off the charts. Ben is so delightful, he is sweet, polite and imparts the perfect wisdom that only a child can.
Narrators Sebastian York, and Andi Arndt continue to deliver a magical performance. They capture Miles and Roxy's personalities perfectly, nailing the humor, and the steamy sexual tension. They make me laugh, and swoon as they bring this world to life. I also loved the bonus short story 'A Little Big Rock' along with the added cast at the end!
Ms. Blakely has created the perfect ending for these brothers and the women and children who love them. I absolutely loved everything about this sweet, heartwarming, funny, and super hot and steamy family saga!

Series

The Heartbreaker series is just WOWZA! I fell in love with Lauren Blakelys writings! Starting with Wanderlust!!!! Lauren’s Heartbreaker did not disappoint, I couldn’t listen fast enough. These sweet, loving and HOT brothers just pull you in. Thank you VERY much! Then that sneaky girl puts a preview of Big Rock and Unzipped, great marketing!

Didn't want this series to end!

This is such amazing series, but that’s true for ALL of Lauren’s books. Miles is a dirty-talking, hot AF single dad, and has had the hots for Roxy for quite a while. With Roxy being his best friend’s sister, Miles works very hard to keep his hands to himself...until he can’t.

Roxy has been lusting after Miles for a long time, too. Being friends with him has to be enough, because Miles doesn’t do relationships. She’ll have to be happy being just friends with Miles...until it’s not enough.

And the bonus Big Rock reunion was so awesome!!

This book will have you laughing, swooning (a lot of that), squirming, cheering, and falling in love right along with Miles and Roxy. Lauren is queen of rom-com books for a reason; she’s fantastic with creating different stories within a series, but also tying them together with a similar thread. I listened to the audiobook version, and Sebastian and Andi do a great job, as usual. You get all the feels with these two, and I will definitely be listening to this series quite a few times.

Great finale to the Heartbreakers series

Wow, this was such a great book and a perfect way to complete the series! Another winner from the magic combo of Lauren Blakely, Andi Arndt and Sebastian York. Miles and Roxy get their beautiful family oriented story in this book. They’ve known each other for a long time and their families are close and they have mutual friends. There’s always been a spark between them, but both were leading their own lives until one fateful lunch with Roxy’s brother, William, who is also Mikes’ financial planner. A wonderful love story ensues. Loved this series! And of course, the narration was on point!!

Flirty, cute romance about younger brother Miles and best friend Roxy

These characters are charming and the dialog is cleverly written though there is a very predictable plot involving plus one friends with benefits. Also Miles is too good to be anything but a fantasy. His only flaw appears to be his ability to communicate his feelings to Roxy which supposedly stems from an earlier broken heart with his son’s birth mother (5 years before). Roxy is funny, quirky, and has a lot of self doubt in her ability to find the “right guy” but she also has a ton of determination and is a problem solver. It makes for an enjoyable 3rd book in the series. It was also nice that there were teaser previews of a few of author Lauren Blakely’s other books at the end without dragging this story out too long. The narration was good as usual though the preview with Little Big Rock with 4 really great narrators was the best. More of that please!

Dwah! Could This Book Be Any More Swoony??

Sigh! The third story in a killer series- Miles and Roxy are the Ying to the others Yang in a smart, sassy, sexy and sweet tale of love, knowing no bounds- popping up where you'd least expect it in the best of ways!
Slight taboo'nes added to the mix with the best friends little sister and troupe, couple that with their hearts splayed on the floor for family, the lust haze that follows them around and flirty fun banter- phew that would be enough right there!
But Miles... MIles is a Rockstar on and off the stage!
He'd do anything for his son Ben! The closer he gets to Roxy the more he'd do for her! Where can I get one of these MIles?
The SWEETEST book out of the series! I swear my heart felt like it was being hugged tight by the end!
I have loved each ( brother) unique, sexy, fun story! I'm just sorry it took me this long to listen to " Once Upon A Wild Fling."
Sebastion York and Andi Ardnt killed it on narration as always!
A listening pleasure to the ears and heart!
Well worth the time and credit!

Flirty and hot!

And it happened! The last of the brothers found the one! I am happy for him but then I am sad as I am not ready to let them go! I really loved this series!

What I love about this part is not the sexy and the flirty. But the fact that Miles adores his son. And tries to do the best for him. He loves him and I love him for that. Lauren shows here how important it is to be present in your child’s life.

But I also love Roxy. She loves them both and is ready to tear anyone apart that will mess with them. Her and Miles from being friends to lovers to a couple was not easy but it was an instant attraction story. But I loved every second of it.

Can I have more please?

can be read/listen as a stand-alone but do yourself a favour and picked other parts too!!

Complete feel good read

What a lovely, sweet read. Quite possibly my favourite of the three. I just love these brothers so much, what a wonderful family, and don’t even get me going on Ben, he is just adorable, he definitely steals the show. Friends to lovers, forbidden(ish) romance, featuring single dad Miles, and single mum to be Roxy, as they decide to be each others plus one for special occasions. A lovely story with wonderful characters (including another hot sexy Hart brother), and lots of cameos from all the previous stories. A complete feel good read. Once again narrated perfectly by Sebastian York and Andi Arndt.

Predictable

Couple of laughs but after the first two books, this was a bit too predictable. It did have a couple of funny moments though.
