From #1 New York Times bestseller Lauren Blakely comes a sexy new standalone rom-com!

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? 


  • Mack and Campbell for the win!

    By DarceySmith
    I adored this book. Woman meets man, they have wild, offthe-charts sex, and man turns out to be woman’s son’s new teacher. Bam! It’s the best kind of forbidden attraction, one that Blakely molds into the perfect love story! It’s witty and sexy: the best combination. Bring on the other 2 brothers!!
  • 4.5 Stars - Absolutely Adored!

    By DecGrl88
    This was so good! I'm giving it 4.5 out of 5 stars. This review is for an ARC, and reflects my honest opinion. I absolutely adored this ARC. The characters were fantastic, the story flowed, there were some great sexy times, and lots of sweetness. Seeing the way Campbell and Mackenzie interacted with their kids was adorable. They're fantastic parents, and I was rooting for them from the very beginning. Campbell is definitely going on my book boyfriend list, and I think his brothers might be joining him once I read their books. The book was told in dual POV, and I loved seeing both sides to this story. In addition to loving Mackenzie and Campbell, I liked Kyle, Samantha, Jamison, Miller, Ally, and lots of others too. There wasn't really anyone in this that I didn't enjoy reading about. If you had doubts about how much I enjoyed this, I read it in two sittings in the same day (finishing the entire book within 12 hours of starting it). I could have easily read it in one sitting, but I didn't want it to end that fast. I am super excited for the next book in this trilogy! Thankfully I won't have to wait very long. I highly recommend you check this one out if you love single parent romances, rock star/musical romances, or just a really cute contemporary with a bit of a fiery side.
  • Smart, sexy, funny

    By gingin615
    Famazing! The smart, witty, intelligent dialogue blew me away in this sweet, sexy romance with two of the best characters I've every read. Super mom Mackenzie is a hoot with her trivia skills and marvelous life attitude. She's put her love life on hold to focus on her son and his needs but when she lays eyes on the sexy guitar player at her favorite haunt it's on. And Campbell is right there with her. He is such a dirty-talking hot hunk! I was swooning from the first hair flip to the last melting kiss. He's a great single dad in addition to his other amazing attributes. There's so much to love about this fantastic story from the sizzling chemistry between Campbell and Mackenzie to the wonderful secondary characters, especially the kids, to the funny, sweet banter to the great ending. This is a feel-good rom com that's low on drama and high on love. Lots of sexy love! I voluntarily reviewed an ARC.
  • Finding Your Epic Love Story

    By Bookbruin
    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!

Mackenzie is a single mom who has overcome some obstacles to get to where she is in life. In her final year of College she slept with her best friend guy friend so he could see if he was bi or gay. Turns out he was gay and that one time, she ended up pregnant.

They end up running into each other again, thanks to a little help from Roxy, and the sparks fly. "I'm wondering if you want to be kissed by someone who's been wanting to kiss you all night long." Things heat up between the two of them, then hit a brick wall when she finds out that Campbell is the person that's been hired to be her son's music teacher. "Who decided that breakups had to hurt worse than stepping on Legos?" In the end it's their kids who intervene to bring them back together.
  • Blakely at her best!

    By Lelypop1
    Mackenzie is a single mom who can’t help but notice the hot guitar player at her favorite bar. Campbell Is a single dad, a former pop star who lives a more private lifestyle now. The chemistry between these two is off the charts but putting their children first gets in the way of their romance. This is a quick, enjoyable read, with lots of dirty talking in an overall happy, feel-good romance. Blakely at her best. Oh, and Campbell is one of three rock star brothers, so you can bet there will be more deliciousness to follow in the Heartbreaker Brothers series
  • ugh

    couldn’t get through the first 50 pages. Ridiculous, cheesy and just bad.
  • Perfectly Unexpected!

    By Lucy3907
    Every book by Lauren Blakely is a treasure I so look forward to and this is no exception. Campbell is the lead guitarist in a band playing at the pub where Mackenzie a trivia whiz comes for a night out. There is an immediate attraction between these two leading to a sizzling one night stand and shows promise of becoming more. Campbell, a former teen idol, is a music prodigy having graduated from Juilliard and plays several musical instruments. Mackenzie became pregnant her final year of college, had her baby and graduated, then built a successful business as a freelance graphic designer. Challenges arise when Mackenzie takes her son for his first violin lesson with a new teacher who turns out to be Campbell. So many great one liners and funny passages. So hot! So witty. It’s the nuances in this story that will grab you too. Fortunately the children, Mackenzie’s Kyle and Campbell’s Samantha, save the day! You also get to know the characters who will be in the next book in this series. I’ll tell you, every woman should have a Campbell!
  • A real good love story!

    By WendyR26
    Another hit from Lauren! I truly do love her books. They are always these light, feel-good romances. I am running out of adjectives to describe how amazing they are. Once Upon a Real Good Time was a real good time ;) Campbell and Mackenzie were great characters and I enjoyed reading about their romance. I am loving the single parent trope more and more. I liked how much they loved, cared, and adored their children. It was nice to read about. The chemistry between these two was off the charts. I was fascinated to see how it would all go down. They had great banter and whenever they were together, it was amusing, sweet, and hot. I immersed myself into the story and I was smiling and loving every moment of it. I am so excited to read the next two books in the series about Campbell’s brothers. Once Upon a Real Good Time was a splendid read-awesome storyline and characters. Lauren knocked it out of the park once again!
  • I loved this book!!

    By Stacyotr
    There isn’t one thing I did not love about Once Upon A Real Good Time. What’s not to love about a hot musician/music teacher/super dad! Campbell is the total package. Whispered words across the stage had Mackenzie falling and contemplating a one night stand. This single mom had no intentions on mingling, but things might change. These two are absolutely perfect together both in and out of the bedroom. Hot-Hot-Hot!!! There was no way one night could ever be enough. An unexpected discovery made things a lot harder and a lot more interesting! Get ready for the sexy times texts and more that will leave you turning the pages!
