    5 Happy, happy stars

    Oh, my lord above. This book?? I don’t think I’ve ever smiled quite as hard before. This sweet, sexy, smile-athon of a story was just THE best book ever. If you’re feeling down, or just read too many dark, or angsty stories then Once Upon a Real Good Time by Lauren Blakely is the perfect antidote. Campbell and MacKenzie are such down to earth characters, they will steal your heart the moment you meet them. Campbell is a music tutor by day, musician by night and just happens to be one of the ‘Heartbreakers’ a legendary trio of brothers from the 90’s. This rock god is now playing in bars incognito and that’s how he and MacKenzie meet. Single dad Campbell plays the guitar and knows all the ways to strum a woman’s body, plus ge’s drop dead gorgeous, sexy as the day is long and has a devilishly dirty mouth. Yeah, that mouth was sooo dirty. Filthy, hot and all the girls will wants him. He’s the newest top BBF to hit the charts. But, it’s the look in his eyes that capture Mac’s attention and his voice. God, can that man sing.. And play. MacKenzie’s life didn’t go quite the way she planned in college, but she wouldn’t change a thing. She runs her own graphic design business, is a mom raising her music prodigy son alone and has a great best friend, plus she still has her son’s father in her life, they’re just not together. So, what else could she need? Love and romance and a hot who treats her right and keeps her happy and satisfied, inside and outside the bedroom, and that’s what Campbell does. I loved how real these two were together, they attraction was instant, their chemistry was so hot it sizzled between them. There was no pretending between them either, which was fun. But, there was a stumbling block or rather two, to their blossoming romance. Can they find a will to tick all the boxes and have the family they each have been secretly longing for? Well, I for one am still smiling so what does that tell you!!! One-Click today and get your own happy on.

    Smokingly sexy

    When I first heard about this series I couldn't help but be excited. A trio of books from my favorite author all releasing closely together? That's like a birthday and Christmas all at once. Once Upon a Real Good Time was a sizzling, sexy read that I absolutely devoured. Mackenzie made me smile. I love her thirst for knowledge, her devotion to her son and her attitude in general. I appreciated her caution but loved seeing her let her guard down, even when she thought she wasn't. I would absolutely be on a trivia team or take in a Broadway show with her; she's the type of character I could easily be friends with. Campbell is one of my favorite Lauren Blakely book boyfriends. I have a running list of them and Campbell may have knocked someone out of the top five...but I won't name names. Campbell just is so insanely sexy-and has epic dirty talking skills- but has this sweet side that just killed me. He's definitely the total package in my book. Strong, sexy, sweet, smart and did I mention he's a musician? I would definitely be a groupie for his band! These two just click together from the moment their eyes meet. I loved every moment of them together. Their first kiss totally set the tone for me (I'm telling you, nobody writes first kisses like this author) and I just buckled in and enjoyed the ride. The sexy times in this book were some of the steamiest and sexiest that I've read in a long time. I truly thought my kindle would melt-they were that hot. But they were so much more than epic sex. Their connection outside the bedroom was just as believable and fun to read about. The supporting cast of characters in this book were an absolute blast. They didn't overshadow Mackenzie and Campbell at all but they added to the story in such a fun way. I'd love to hang out with Jamison for a day! There are books where you feel like you can just jump in and join the characters, live in their world for a bit. Once Upon a Real Good Time was one of those books for me. I could happily live among these characters. There were some Easter eggs in this book that definitely had me smiling as well. I didn't want this book to end. I thought it was a clever, fun and unique storyline. The writing was sharp and the pacing flowed just perfectly. I laughed, swooned and had to fan myself repeatedly throughout the book. Once Upon a Real Good Time definitely lives up to its name as this book definitely provided me with a really good time. I can't wait for the next book in this series! I absolutely loved this book and would highly recommend it.

    Finding Your Epic Love Story

    Once Upon a Real Good Time was a fun and light rom com! It's low on angst and drama and was a wonderful single parent love story with a touch of forbidden thrown in for good measure. I really loved Mackenzie and Campbell! They had undeniable chemistry and Campbell's dirty mouth was just delicious! The push and pull between them was perfect and created just the right amount of build up. I really appreciated that though they both wanted more from the other, their first priorities were always the happiness of their children. Having them both be single parents was a twist on the trope I haven't seen often and I found it really refreshing that the hero and heroine were both mature and responsible adults with established careers and lives. Mackenzie was such a quirky and fun heroine. Her endless trivia knowledge and cooking skills were awesome and I loved the backstory behind her single parent status. The secondary characters were just as amazing and added some wonderfully to the story, especially Jamison. The epilogue set up the next book perfectly and I can't wait for Miller's friends to lovers romance! If you're looking for an easy and sexy rom com, you don't want to miss this one!

    5 dirty talking stars!

    I am obsessed with our dirty tallking, single dad Campbell. He is so swoony and sexy and I loved being in his head. Mackenzie is also a single parent and I loved that they both were. It showed how much they both cared about their kids and always put them first, it made their relationship tricky at times. They both care about others so much and are such passionate people. They have such an ease with each other and naturally fit. I just could not put their book down, I wanted them to get their happily ever after. This is the sexy yet sweet kind of story that I absolutely love from Lauren Blakely!

    Fell In Love

    I totally fell in love with this story from the very beginning. Campbell is definitely a man to swoon after. This story had me smiling from beginning to end. I enjoyed that there was not much drama in the relationship between the 2 main characters.
