I thought I had it all – the perfect life, with the perfect arrangement, with the perfect guy.

To the world, Kevin Peyton is the heartthrob Oscar nominee. To me, he's my best friend, with some sexy benefits.

But then I got a taste of his world. A world where being mobbed by fans, violated by intruders, and stripped of all privacy is the norm. I never realized how brutal bei

How is this even the authors first book?

Wow.. I loved it ❤️

Kevin and Claire were the sweetest couple. I actually read it in one sitting.

If you are looking for a sweet book with very little drama, then I recommend Cliche!

Such a sweet book!! ❤️

It seems to me that reviews, as they are now commonly used, can cover a quite a bit of ground. They can, for example, be pretty much just a recommendation. They can be a purely statement of how a reader feels about a book, and how that book made them feel. Or they can be a more detailed assessment of the perceived strengths and weakness of a work. Or, of course, any of the foregoing, or all three.

In this review of Ryleigh Sloan’s debut novel, Cliché, I’m going to attempt all three.

First, the eas

This is the authors first book and I devoured it! I don’t know if anything I write in my review will do it justice!
I shed tears, I became emotionally invested in the characters and what they were going through!
Claire runs her family’s business and doesn’t really do much except work! Her best friend is Kevin.... an actor!
I just loved him, his protectiveness, his caring side and the way he didn’t want his life in the spotlight to become part of Claire's! My heart was in my throat in a certain par

Ahh, where to start... Cliché was such an enjoyable read! I was blown away by the fact that this was the authors debut novel. Kevin & Claire’s relationship is everything! At the heart of it, they’re best friends but also lovers, confidants, and partners in crime. There is an ease to their relationship that totally works and makes you love them instantly. Claire has a lot going on and is completely turned off by Kevin’s celebrity lifestyle and Kevin doesn’t want her subjected to the overbearing p ...more

I received an ARC and am leaving a review because I want to.

I absolutely loved AND hated this book. I loved the story and I could not get enough of Kevin and Claire. Kevin is an actor and Claire runs a private airport they have a special arrangement of friends with benefits.

Chapter 19 devastated me and it is where I began to hate the book (in the best way possible). My heart broke so many time throughout this book. I will say though that this book had all the feels, it has happiness, sadness, a

First I have to say, this is A Must Read for 2018 and by far my favorite read this year. Wow, this book is such a wonderful, feel good read. It's not like your average sweet romance book. I love the way it's written, it's unique and different. Did I mention all the super hot steaminess! Claire and Kevin are so loveable. They have known each other and have been friends since childhood. The chemistry...the smoking hot, full of heat and passion between these two will keep you going from chapter to ...more

I really wanted to love Cliché. First it's one of my favorite themes childhood friends turned lovers and Ms. Sloan is a new to my author and I'm always looking for new authors to read. Unfortunately Cliché feel flat for me and I'm unable to continue. At this point of the story I still don't feel any connection between the main characters, I think this story desperately needed to be told from both POV. I still have no idea how they started this whole friends with benefits, and because the

I loved it!💜

This was a great friends to lovers romance. The storyline was very good. It made me sad, happy, excited & angry making it the perfect combination for a romance novel. The female character seemed a little insecure which was perfect because she felt more real.
The narration was absolutely perfect! Erin Mallon nails it with her perfect delivery and great voices.
This book has an HEA. I recommend this book.

I have to celebrate the success of Ryleigh Sloan with her debut work! This book has it all; several intertwining story lines, the tentative - somewhat distant relationship between sisters, the supportive family - including gran, & the ultimate love.

I started ugly crying my way through around mid book. I finally took a breath two chapters from the end.

I fell in lust with all of these characters. I'm invested in their futures.

I can't recommend this book more than I have here.

Ryleigh has created a story that grabs you and simply does not let go until the very last page.
She takes the reader on an emotional journey that will have you sighing, swooning and crying - seriously, keep the tissues close by.
There were times where I was swooning over Kevin and others where I wanted to strangle him!
And Claire is so easy to root for. She doesn't have it easy but she pulls on her big girl pants and deals!

Great read!

I am voluntarily reviewing this book for BMBB.

I had high expectations and this book met almost all of them.

There were so many emotions going through me while I read this book. I don't think I can tell anything without spoiling. So read and enjoy.

Let me start by saying this book has blown me away and I never would have guessed this was a debut novel, so congrats on killing it Ryleigh.

This book gives you the friendship, lust, jealousy, mixed feelings, love, hot sex, there’s also a serious side to the story, some parts had me crying like a baby, then there’s the author’s sense of humour comes shining through in the characters and their banter.

Such a good read!

I didn’t know what to expect but what I got was a strong 4.5 Stars! This was one of the best reads I have read from a debut author that I have never heard of and was a fan by the end. You will experience many emotions as you follow Claire and Kevin’s journey. Their relationship was easy to follow with its well written storyline and griping situation that will have you invested in their life. I can’t wait to see what else this author comes up with for her next story.

I went into this book not knowing it was a debut novel. I was in search of anything to get me out of my book funk that I was in. I’m usually not a huge fan of pop star and normal girl romances but I will read them if they are good enough. Let me tell you. This book was beyond good enough! It brought so many feels out of me. I laughed. I cried. Happy and sad tears. I got mad. I got excited. Every emotion you can think of. Cliche was more a best friend to lovers romance than it was a celebrity rom ...more

Cliche

Oh, I absolutely love a best friends romance! Cliche is absolutely perfect! Kevin and Claire have such intense chemistry and love that is so fluid and natural! I love how they have separate paths in life, but their bond remains!

Claire and kevin 💗

This is definitely a 5 star read! In this book we get to follow Claire and Kevin's life from Claire's point of view. There are some ups and downs, some steamy scences and some tear jerker parts. I am in love with Ryleigh Sloan's writting style and I can wait to read more!

This star struck book was a fun read. They knew each other since childhood. He left South Africa to become a Hollywood actor. But always came back for her. They became friends with benefits. He was always protective of her. So much that when she went with him to California and things got too much for her he got a fake girlfriend. But was she really fake? Could her insecurities place him in another's arms for good?

Audiobook Review:

This was an excellent introduction to this author. It absolutely makes me want more. I loved Claire and Kevin. I loved their friendship and their relationship and just their overall vibe together. I sometimes wished that I could see things from Kevin's POV but this was really well written and there was a lot going on with Claire both when it came to Kevin and outside of her relationship with him. So it worked that things were only told from her view. I loved the Epilogue but kin

Claire and Kevin has been with each other forever until he goes off and hits it big. He brings Claire into his other life and tries to protect her from the spotlight. They have never put a label to their relationship and when Claire tells him her feelings, everything changes. She does something selfless for her sister and realizes that she can't hide forever. This is a book that takes you on an emotional ride with Claire and Kevin. Good story.

I thought this was a really great book. I loved the storyline and the characters. It was a fantastic love story how the two main characters were friends most of their lives and then fell in love. But things were hard because he was a movie actor and he was afraid to put her through all the crap they go through. The cameras, the Hollywood rumors, always having their life being intruded by everyone. But they meant so much to each other that they were willing to try. But only after walking away bel ...more

I enjoyed this fun and emotional romance. I was pleasantly surprised by how compelling I found this book. I thought the author did a very good job of taking the basic friends with benefits turns to love trope and used a storyline that added complications that increased the interest factor and helped to create deeper layers to the characters. There is a lot of emotion and tension in this book. The struggle between the hearts and minds of Kevin and Claire takes you and them on quite the roller coa ...more

I absolutely loved this book from the beginning of the story all the way through to the last page. It was such an enjoyable read and the right kind of contemporary romance novel I could have wished for.

This novel is for adult readers only due to the sexy language and steamy scenes written throughout.
