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.

My Review:
Source:  E-galley from InkSlingerPR which did not influence my opinion in any way
My rating:  4 stars

The title of this is a little misleading, as I don't feel that the couple has a wild fling.  I feel like the two of them are definitely attracted to each other from the  moment they met, but neither was in a place to do anything about it, not to mention, neither figured the other would actually be interested in anything serious.  Plus, both have the added responsibility of being a parent, Miles is currently a father to his young son, and Roxy is about to become a mother on her own. 

Besides the fact that the title doesn't quite fit the story, the story is a good one. Sweet, and sexy, and I really loved little Ben, Miles' son.  I liked how Miles was attracted to Roxy, that even her changing body was part of what he liked, and the more she developed, the more he liked those changes.  A lot of the story was very realistic in my opinion as well.  The way they kind of stumbled around trying to say they wanted more, but not being sure how to say it without scaring the other off. The way that they put their children or soon-to-be children first, but not in such a way that it felt it was only a part of the story to cause drama.  I also liked how their families may have seemed like they could be an issue, for instance Roxy's brother being Miles' financial advisor and friend, and maybe that would be a problem.  But instead, her brother knew what would be good for her. And then you had Roxy's mother, who seemed as if she disapproved of Roxy's choices, but in the end, it was really just Roxy being worried about how she felt, and that is so much like I think most people would be worried about disappointing their parents.  Roxy's mother was a wonderful mom, and all her ways of showing her concerns really just were being a mother. 

This is the first I've read in this series, and they are all standalones, because there wasn't anything I needed to know from the other books in order to enjoy this one.  However, I am now intrigued enough to want to read first two books.  It seems as if there are already kids in each of the couples' lives, so that makes this a kind of unique series it would seem.  Definitely worth the read, a bit of a rock star romance too.  I loved how they came up with the song that it is is "Always About a Girl" at the end of the story too.  I wonder if something like that is done in the other two stories as well.

"Romcom perfection! The plot was one I didn't see coming!" - Booked All Night

Excerpt:
~ROXY~
I find Miles behind a stage that has probably witnessed high school graduations, speeches, and musicals. His eyes take a leisurely stroll up and down my body. The way he stares, every zone in my body feels erogenous. Especially the boob zone, where he spends more time than usual. 
When he slides his gaze up to my face, he looks hypnotized, then he shakes it off and brings me in for a hug. “So glad you’re here, Rox. Now go enjoy the show, and I’ll find you the second we’re done.”
Once it starts, I do enjoy the show. I never saw the Heartbreakers in concert when they were in their heyday. I’ve never been a concert person. Not that I’m opposed to music, but my mother set a precedent when I was in the eighth grade and my friends had a chance to see P!nk perform. I asked her if I could go, but the next day I had to take the prep school entrance exam, so the answer was no. 
It’s a better use of your time to stay in and study,” she’d said. 
That’s what I mostly did in high school, listening to music on the radio as I worked through math problems and wrote essays on the Vietnam War. The Heartbreakers kept me company that way. Later, when Miles became a solo artist, I’d find myself humming his tunes when I heard them play in Starbucks, or while riding the escalator at Bed Bath & Beyond. 
I became a fan, but I’m not a fangirl like some of the others here tonight. I don’t just mean the women. The Heartbreakers have fanboys and fangirls, singing along, belting out tunes. They’re crowding the stage, and the security guards hired when the Heartbreakers were confirmed for the event are standing on alert, arms crossed. Fortunately, there are no bras or panties thrown at the stage, nor briefs or belts either. I’m glad Miles’s high school class is full of fans but not crazy groupies. 
The music reverberates in the gymnasium as the trio of gorgeous brothers sings love songs and fun songs and sexy songs while disco balls twirl from the ceiling and strobe lights flash. 
When the set nears the end and they dive into one of Miles’s most popular solo tunes, a love song called “Today,” I swear his eyes find mine in the crowd as he sings about yesterdays and tomorrows. The way he sings turns the tingles into sparks, and I’m feeling it now for sure—that click, click, click of my heart, or maybe it’s my hormones. 
Whatever it is, my breath comes faster as I dance. 
When the show ends and the band thanks the crowd, that’s my cue to find him backstage. He’s sweaty, and I’ve never found sweat so sexy before. He drapes an arm around me, drops a kiss to my cheek, and says, “Hey, sexy bodyguard.”
My voice is a little breathier than I expect as I reply, “Reporting for duty.”
