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 hes 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.


Sing sexy songs with the woman you’ve been lusting after? Get up close and personal as you croon to the woman you’ve wanted for years?

Piece of cake.

Performing with the sweet, sassy and insanely wonderful Ally is like one gigantic obstacle course of challenges for my libido. And my libido is one sexy love song away from kissing her senseless and taking her home.

But, I’m not a serious kind of guy, and she’s not a one-night-stand kind of woman. If we cross the horizontal line, we might risk our sure thing and end up out of tune forever...

Ally and Miller.
They've been best friends for six years. They do everything together.
But they never crossed that friendship line to romance.
And now they might add co-workers to their resumé. Miller wants to go back to being a part of a band like he used to be with his brothers. But this time he wants to try a duet with a woman (mostly because his brother Campbell doesn't want to revive the band).
Enter Ally. They tried it a few times at karaoke bars or for christmas, but he was just to rockish for her churchy voice. But she really wants this job - and the money would be nice too ....

What will happen with Ally & Miller?
Will there be a HEA?

Awww, that was adorable!
Such a sweet and fun friends-to-lovers romance!
Funny, sparky, sexy, cute.
I just adored those two!
It might take them a while to be brave enough to try that romance thing. They've been attracted to each other since the day the met, but then they did the friendship thing and it's too precious to risk... They just don't want to lose their best friend.
The reader has an amazing time watching them fight for their happy end!
Really Great romance!!! I just loved Ally and Miller - and the kids and siblings and friends!
I wouldn't mind seeing this on Netflix one day!
Can't wait to get Miles' story asap! And it will be almost asap - only 2 weeks until book #3! ☺

ONCE UPON A SURE THING was such a fun and adorable & sexy & musicy love story!! Run to your nearest amazon asap for your own Miller - this one is MINE !!!

ARC received for an honest review

It has been a long couple of weeks since we read Once Upon A Real Good Time, and I have been sitting by my kindle waiting for One Upon A Sure Thing to get here.

We got a bit of a Ally and Miller in Campbell's book, but what Ms Blakely has given us is so much more than I was looking for.

I am a big fan of friends-to-lovers stories.  The UST between this pair is

I love how they fight for the HEA, knowing that it could end their best friend-ship if things go south.  As I reader I was their biggest cheerleader, they needed to take things to the next level, if only for my sanity!

I loved the brothers/kids/friends and their banter.  They made me laugh so hard at times. I need to be part of their circle!

This was just a perfect, sweet, beautiful romance that left me smiling well after I had finished it.

Now I neeeeeed Miles' book ASAP!



She sings like a sinner. She sings like an angel. She sounds like whiskey and sugar. I’ve only ever known her for her church-bell voice, but now she’s a glorious mix of dirty and sweet, and I never knew she had it in her.

But I can’t marinate in this change-up. It’s showtime for me.

Grabbing the mic, I dive into my first line as I gaze into those blue eyes of my friend. Only I have to think of her as Honey, so I sing to the new woman about how I can’t do without her, how I need her now.

Something is in the air between us when we sing, something charged. Something that hasn’t been there before. Stage chemistry.

I move closer as if I’m drawn by the pull of gravity that I have no control over. We lock eyes and everyone else fades away. I’m still in shock that I’m loving singing a song with my best friend.

That’s what terrifies me. Especially since we sound good together, and we move well together.

Maybe we even look good together, as we belt out this hot-as-fuck duet, and for the first time we’re not butchering a holiday tune or destroying “Total Eclipse of the Heart” at karaoke. As she moves closer to me, we sing the final chorus like it’s going out of style, and when the music softens, I can’t resist. I finger a strand of her blonde wig, the coconut scent from her lotion floating into my nose.

Reluctantly, I let the hair fall.

Clapping rings loud in my ears.

Jackson, Miles, and Campbell give a standing O. Jackson holds up his phone, pointing to it, letting me know he caught it on video.

“Chemistry,” the guys all shout, practically in unison.

But I’m not supposed to have chemistry with my best friend.

That’s the problem.

“What the hell just happened here?” I whisper to Ally, befuddled.

Her mouth opens, and her eyes go wide, and she blurts out, “I have an appointment. I need to go.”

She takes off, leaving in her wake a trail of chemistry and coconut and confusion.
