Abigail - Abby - is working her dream job at a charity that grants the biggest and most often also the last wishes of very sick children.

Currently Abby is working on fulfilling the wish of Parker - he wants to meet his idol - Rockstar Kennedy Lane.

But Abby is not so sure that she should bring this poor boy into the sex, drugs and rock'n'roll world that Kennedy seems to live in.

Kennedy has been a rockstar for almost 15 years now, but ever since the horrible accident that took his sister's life tw

Ms Miller and Ms Carson - you had me at rock star.

I am a sucker for a rock star book, and I immediately liked our guy Kennedy. He is really living the sex & drugs & rock n roll lifestyle.

I liked that Redfall were older guys, not the usual "just signed a record deal early 20's guys" - they are closer to old-fartdom like me!

I really enjoyed seeing the characters develop - they are more than the public person, more than trappings of fame. The are flawed, messed

Wow! What an unexpected, phenomenal surprise this book was. These authors' obviously either did their homework or unfortunately have been hit with the every day reality of addiction. Unless you yourself either suffer from it or have a loved one who does you can't possibly understand the truth behind their words written, the realism in them or the devastation one feels watching someone you love suffer or worse yet, know someone personally, who has taken their life with heroin or has lost a loved ...more

I love an awesome rock star romance. This one will definitely tug at the heartstrings of readers, I know it did for me. This is the debut book for writing duo B.B. Miller and Leslie Carson and what a great job they did with this book. It is well written, thought provoking and has plenty of drama, sex and rock & roll. This story contains drug addiction and may be sensitive to some readers. Those who have experienced what drugs can do to a loved one will be able to relate to parts of Kennedy and A ...more

Kennedy and Abigail are total opposites and opposites attract. These two didn't have insta-love, they went on a journey of healing to get to their HEA. This is a very compelling, tear worthy story full of angst. It's a well written book with amazing characters that I'm sure will get books of their own. There were parts of this story that tore at my heartstrings. This is an intriguing story about love, loss and guilt. The authors give the characters so much depth and they did an incredible job de ...more

I'm a fan of rockstar/famous beings books because there's always that additional element of feeling like you're reaching a secret part of the character that they're not showing to the rest of the world - even though they only exist within the pages.

Rock The Dream introduces us to Kennedy Lane, lead singer of the band Redfall. To put it nicely, he's an absolute mess - living the rock and roll lifestyle of the 80s but thankfully with a lot less kids. If I'm being honest I don't think Kennedy has

I loved everything about this book!! Rock the Dream was a sexy and sweet romance filled to the brim with enticing and charming characters. The smart banter and chemistry between Kennedy and Abigail alone will have me returning to this series again and again. It's that awesome.

Kennedy is a mega rock star who is stuck in an over indulgent lifestyle. Too many women, too much alcohol and drugs - not enough of anyone telling him no or giving him boundaries. He doesn't even seem to really be taking pl

where to begin. this book is amazing. the characters are amazing. I got emotional a few times reading this book. Abby and Kennedy are just fantastic together. He is drowning himself in booze and she heads up a charity making sick kids dreams come true. when their paths cross because a sick boy wants to meet Redfall, well all their world's change. Kennedy wants to prove to her he is more than just a rock and roll chiché, he asks her to not give up on him, and against her better judgement and thei ...more

Rockstar romances are my jam and this is a smashing debut to a new Rockstar series. Rock The Dream is an incredibly inspiring and sexy love story that will leave you wanting more. It’s also a slow burn with meet me in the “red room” sexiness.
This unexpected tear-jerker has it all: famous rock group, groupies, Bromance and the girl next door. Kennedy Lane is sexy, flawed and recklessly drowning in his grief. Abigail is a hard nose professional who pulls no punches while telling it

I received a copy of this book from the author for an honest review.

Kennedy Lane is a piece of work! He's definitely got the whole rock star stereotype down pat. Alcohol - check. Drugs - check. Women - check. People - check. Though not all of those people are helpful in this type situation that's for sure. I am a fan of rock star romances and thought I'd give these two (new to me) authors a try! They did not disappoint.

I like that Abigail doesn't back down from Kennedy. Though she's highly attr

I'm a sucker for a good rock star romance, so when Leslie tweeted about the release of this book I knew I had to read it.
I will admit I had a hard time getting into this book. I wasn't entirely sure I was going to like Kennedy and I was almost positive I wasn't going to like Abby. But boy! Was I every wrong. As Kennedy and Abby got to know each other, and I got to know them, I fell in love. The back stories of both lead characters were interesting, well plotted, and made them both entirely likab

Rock The Dream by B.B. Miller & Leslie Carson was a book filled with some very serious subject matters that was handled superbly.

Miller & Carson tackle issues surrounding loss, addiction, and the battle to overcome disease. They do this with honesty, realism, and dignity.

Kennedy Lane is a famous rock star and finds himself embroiled in the loss of a loved one. He seems stuck in his remorse and grief, and uses everything he can think of to send Medicare his way out of feeling.

The main thing that stands out to you in this novel is the message about giving back and doing good. Rock the dream is exactly like the Blurb says. The rocker, Kennedy makes this kids day or dream, like make a wish come true. Abby is over the charity that handles it and she basically tells him that he is not coming within a hundred yards of the kids because he's a horrible influence. He straightens up for the kid Parker and for Abby. It's a long journey and Kennedy has bad influences all around ...more

Excellent story

First off, I absolutely adored Abby's character. I also loved Kennedy and his fight to get where he needed to be, so that he could be what he knew others like Parker thought he was. I cannot wait to read what comes next!

THIS BOOK IS WORTH MORE THAN 5 STARS, IT IS WORTH A WHOLE GALAXY OF STARS. If this book was a record, it would have reached Platinum status. Oh my goodness, I did not know what to expect, but this book has all the feels, there were times I was crying, laughing, mad, sad and swooning. I absolutely loved Kennedy the hot rocker singer, just look at the cover, he has some issues, but swoon worthy. Abigail/Abby was a beautiful strong female that knows what she wants.

This was recommended by a book buddy and she never steers me wrong. I loved this book. I loved that there was no unnecessary over the top drama! Kennedy was so swoon worthy. I love that Abby had a backbone and was not afraid to speak her mind. Cannot wait for Book 2!!! Matt...Tess...yes!!!

Great Rocker story

When children are involved, tears are close at hand. This story has some seriously touching moments with a particular young boy and a hard core Rocker. Kennedy has quite the tender heart, once he finds it in the fog of the life he’s living. Abby is impressive in her professional demeanor, and ability to continue in the middle of the Hottest romances of her life!

Suspension of Reality generally comes with the territory when reading Romance. But one thing I appreciate about Rock

So much more than 5 stars!

Rock the Dream might be one of my favorite rockstar books yet. I was sucked in from page one and could not put it down. The authors did an amazing job of touching on the sensitive subjects of addiction and also childhood illnesses. The chemistry between Kennedy and Abby was off the charts and I absolutely can not wait to get my hands on more from Redfall Dreams series.

Amazing read

What a wonderfully written book, with an amazing storyline to match. Abby and Kennedy are two people that no one would dare to put together, but together they make things shine!!! Both of them have such giving hearts that it's hard to compete with who pleases who more. I can't wait to read Tess and Matt's story.

Let me start off by saying that I love rocker romances so when I find one that I can really get into it is stays with me. Rock the Dream (Redfall Dream #1) by BB MIller & Leslie Carson is easily one of those books for me. This book has depth and the characters although they are quite the opposite of one another- they come together perfectly!!!
