Are you ready to have a real good time?
What do you get when you mix a smoking hot one-night stand, a swoon worthy former rock star, and a quirky single mom ready to paint the town red? Add in a morning after that surprises them both, and you get a laugh-out-loud and insanely sexy new romantic comedy from #1 NYT bestseller Lauren Blakely that you’re guaranteed to love!
5 EPIC CROWNS
GAH! There is a reason Lauren Blakely is the queen of the romantic comedy. The chemistry and banter between her characters never ceases to charm me, and her stories just fill me up with that euphoric high that comes from reading a fantastic book.
Campbell and Mackenzie couldn’t have been any freaking cuter. I swear. Between Mackenzie’s love of trivia and Campbell’s passion for all things musical, I just became enamored with these two. They are fun and lively and entertaining. What seals the deal is their love of their kids. This is the way to parent, and I love the way the support and interact with their kids.
As with most Blakely couples, the chemistry between Campbell and Mackenzie is magical, like watching your favorite Broadway show or your favorite singer perform. You just want to soak in the conversations, to keep the cheesy grin from the flirting and banter, to revel in the chemistry between the sheets. Every single moment is romantic comedy magic.
This story is just perfectly paced. The characters have that initial lust, and Lauren delivers the goods pretty early on. She takes her time with these two, allowing them to get to know one another through real and honest dialogue. Their attraction grows organically, and with each moment, reads grow to love these two and their kids more and more. As with most romantic comedies, the conflict is light and on some level predictable, but it fit so well with the plot and resolution that I found myself not caring. I didn’t want long and drawn out. I wanted light, fun, and cute, and Lauren Blakely delivered.
Once Upon a Real Good Time has earned a top spot in my Lauren Blakely favorites with the palpable chemistry and smart banter between her characters, creating an effervescent feeing I never want to let go of. I can’t wait for the next brother!

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?
