Synopsis from Goodreads

My brother’s best friend has a proposition for me. Have I mentioned he’s a sexy single dad? Tell me more…
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.
Then he asks me to be his plus-one when his band plays at his high school reunion, and the night unfolds in ways I never expect.
I have three good reasons to keep my hands off Roxy Sterling–her brother’s my business manager and good buddy, 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. So I make a proposition.
Then I learn exactly how risky we might be.

Miles and Roxy have already made a significant appearance within the Heartbreakers. Firstly, Miles is the youngest brother in our trio of heartbreaker siblings and secondly, Roxy is McKenzie’s best friend from Once Upon A Real Good Time.

Once Upon a Wild Fling is pretty straightforward, Miles and Roxy are friends who agree to act as a plus-one to the other if the occasion should arise. Although there is heat simmering in the background neither Miles or Roxy has acted on their fantasies because of the other barriers in their lives – Roxy’s brother is also Miles’ friend and financial advisor, Miles has a six-year-old son who is the center of his world and lastly, Roxy has recently undergone IVF in order to make her dreams of motherhood a reality.

Once Upon a Wild Fling plays out beautifully with a lot of humor mixed in with the swoon. The family relationships are the stuff dreams are made of, the camaraderie and support they provide each other is more than most of us can wish for. For me, however, it was Miles’ son, Ben, who completely stole the show with his adorableness, and above all his ability to see situations clearly. As adults we tend to overthink things to the point we get in our own way, whereas children are more along the lines of black is black and white is white 😁

Lauren manages to progress the other brother’s stories alongside the development of Miles and Roxy’s relationship providing a fantastic completion to the Heartbreakers series 💞
