As lead singer of Indigo Road, I had it all: fame, fortune, and all the sex a man could ever want.
My fall from the top was anything but graceful, and I lost everything, including my self-respect.
Stepping back into the spotlight would prove a challenge. A challenge I was more than ready for, until she happened—Wynne Benfield. She was the whole package: brains, beauty and t

I don't know how to describe you the way I've been feeling lately... I've been super anxious. And one of the reasons is this book right here...
As you already know, from reading my previous reviews, I'm love this author. She has given me some of the best books I've ever read and I always want more.
It's been a while since I got the chance to read a book from her so you can guess the nerves I'm feeling.

Wow. Wow. Wow! Another amazing Rockstar Romance from RB Hilliard. I love her work, her style and all her characters. I was addicted to her Meltdown series and I’m so glad all the characters are revisited in this one.

Most of the way through, my rating was stuck at 4 stars because I found the first quarter of the books was extremely rushed and I felt we were being zooming through the story instead of getting to meet the main characters properly and also because I couldn’t tell if Wynne’s name was

And The Winner Is….

With the singing competitions shows hitting it big this book was a fun ride to take with the hot bad boy rocker judge, Sander, and one of his team members. Wynne was extremely talented but also was very naïve to the music business. If she knew half of what Sander had done in life once hitting it big in the rock scene, she would have thought twice before letting what she felt for him get in the way of her aspiring career.

Sander had a past that he just as soon be left in the pa

This is so much more than “just” a rockstar romance. It is angsty, gripping, captivating and will totally rock your world. Sander is a character that at first I found made me walk a fine line between loving and hating him. I wasn’t sure whether he was more than his past, however he proved that he was worth every cent of the million dollar musician price tag when it came to proving his love. Wynne was a young woman on the verge of having it all but when you risk it all for your heart, the risk mi ...more

10 you're the winner stars!

I read to escape and decided to start this book after a really rough "real life" week. When I started, I was thinking "oh I don't like this guy at all" but kept reading. Suddenly I was at 50% and 75% and finished! What a freaking escape that was. RB Hilliard captured me completely with this story of a personal second chance for one character and a once in a life time chance for another. There were twists and turns, backstabbing and jubilation and so much more than I ex

Not being a fan of music "reality" shows, I did like this book. Sander James is a character that had been in other books and his road to redemption is being a judge on Million Dollar Musician. I will say I liked Sander, his downfall is well explained but what I didn't like was Wynne. For a 28 yr old, some of her actions and reactions were that of someone much younger. Chaz Jones from Meltdown is in this book and his snark at Sander was very well played. I wish the comeuppance was a little more t ...more

Once in a while you read a book that leaves you wondering how it made you feel , Million Dollar Musician is that book for me. This book is amazing and beautifully written and I would recommend it as it’s a 10 star read. Sander and Wynne’s story is heartbreaking but so worth the journey to see them get their HEA.

Loved this story!!

Once again this talented author has written a story which had me totally captivated throughout this additive page turner and I cannot wait to read more of her work which I highly recommend for all readers.

Ugh, DNF at some point... can’t remember the exact moment when I couldn’t stand it anymore. Sanders was just icky and the author glossed over the entire moment/week they fell in love which made me feel disconnected from the characters.

You gotta love a rock star romance and this one i fell for hook line and sinker!

This is a standalone that's loosely tied to The Meltdown series but you don't have to have read that to read this.

Sander after years of addiction is finally sober. He's up to two years clean and he's currently judging a talent show to find the next Million Dollar Musician. He'd started to get bored of the sober life. Nothing filled him with passion until he meets one of the contestants Wynne. She's on his team and s

I was excited to finally get to read this story, but a little apprehensive too. I’d been introduced to Sander’s character during the Meltdown series and let’s be honest he was really screwing up his life back then. Then I got another brief peek at he and Wynne in the Christmas with a Rockstar collection, but not the full story. But with the way in which that brief peek ended, while I was totally invested to see what happened to these two people next, I have to admit I was also feeling some appre ...more

5 Amazingly Electrified Guitars for Million Dollar Musician

RB Hilliard has done it again! Million Dollar Musician is a standalone, with a few glimpses of the Meltdown boys thrown in for good measure, mostly Chaz. It's a nice nod for fans, but definitely not integral at all to the plot of MDM. (Though I can't resist throwing in a not at all veiled suggestion to read that series because it is one of my favorites. There's a pretty good chance I am about to settle in for a full re-read because there

When I first started reading this new book, I felt like I already knew this story or had read it before. Maybe some parts of it were pieces of another story?? Well, I do read ALOT of books so, color me confused!

Whatever the case, I kept on reading, found it hard to put down and then just enjoyed the hell out of it. I binged the Meltdown series in its entirety a while back so this one sounded like another book by R.B. Hilliard that would be right up my music loving alley. It was!

Who does not love a good bad boy turned good story? Of course, a rockstar comes with all kinds of baggage. Drugs, alcohol, sex galore and a broken heart that is the norm of a good background story for a reformed rake, so to speak.

Every reformed rake needs a damsel in distress. Wynne is no different. Attracted to the very charming Sander, the start of their journey is more like biting into the forbidden fruit. They know they shouldn't but yet, how could they not? And of course, the fall out of t

Million Dollar Musician by RB Hilliard a five-star read that you would give a million Dollars to be with. This is the best RB Hilliard has ever written, its like a culmination of all of her writing came together and birthed this amazing word baby. Sander James hasn’t always been a good man, but he is certainly trying to be the best man possible now. There is drama a plenty and passion that will astound you, you will see some of he Meltdown crew pop up and they will make you smile and one may jus ...more

Million Dollar Musician was soooooo good it has to be my favorite by R.B Hilliard which is saying something because I love everything that the author writes . Let me just say the hero at first isn't so likable the things he does just no no but of course I fell for him half way through and got to really understand him and why he was the way that he is . The heroine to was hard for me to fall for but again was the story went on she grew on me . The chemistry between them is off the charts hot they ...more

Brilliant addition to the series!!

I am a huge fan of The Meltdown series so to get another chance to be taken back into that world was definitely an exciting prospect for me. We met Sander James in Shattered Rhythm causing all sorts of problems for Olivia and Chaz. While they eventually got their happy ever after, poor Sander did not and I remember at the time thinking there is more to this guy, he deserves his own happy ever after.
Sander hasn't led the best life or made the best choices but he'

Oh man, I really did not think I was going to like Sander. He’s kind of an ass at times. And let’s just say he makes some seriously poor life choices. Someone really needs to get this man a handler.

I’m not quite sure how he and Wynne ever thought they were going to keep their relationship a secret in this world of social media, camera phones and selling your story to the highest bidder, but they went for it anyway. And I might question how Sander went about trying to fix his fuck ups,

I remember meeting Sander in Shattered Rhythm and felt there definitely had to be something more to this character I was so excited to hear RB was writing his story
Sander was a very complex character who after hitting rock-bottom was trying to put his life back together, now sober for more than 2 years, he decided to be a coach for Million Dollar Musician, a music competition show, with the hopes of reigniting a solo career when the show is over.
What Sander didn’t count on was how much he would

I was so excited to see this new book from RB Hilliard. The story has a tie in from her previous Meltdown series, but you don't need to read that series to enjoy the book.
When I first started reading the book, I wasn't sure how I was going to feel about it. There was a lot of information and drama happening pretty quickly but once revealed where the story was going it made sense, and I could settle in.
I thought Sander and Wynne had great chemistry and made sense together. I wanted to hate Sande

If you ever wondered just what goes on behind the scenes of those reality shows like the Voice or American Idol, here's your chance to let your imagination run wild.

Sander James was the lead singer of Indigo Road and had it all: fame, fortune and women throwing themselves at him. He is approached to star in a reality music show as a judge that would get to call the shots. When Wynne Benfield auditions, he knows that she has what it takes to win ... and not just the competition, she's a star. But

What a sexy ride Million Dollar Musician is?

Oh my Sander is just swoon worthy and so loveable for a bad@ss rockstar. I just can’t say how much I love R.B. Hillard and her rockstar boys! She once again has taken you into a world you wish you could be apart of.

Sander and Wynne were a ball full of cuteness. There are real no other words to truly describe them. Sander the man with the reputation and Wynne with the sweet, innocent persona. When the two came together there are no other words then cut

Loved the story.

There are secrets that Sander is keeping from Wynne to protect her. But is it the right move? Or should Sander had taken different actions?

Wynne is a teacher but her dream is to become a singer. And she has that opportunity since she’s a contestant in a show and having none other than Sander James as her team coach!
Sander accepted to be in the show so he could get his career back in track. He did not intend to fell for Wynne. They tried to keep their relationship out of the light

RB Hilliard is just a phenominal author! "Million Dollar Musician" has not only met my expectations, but exceeded everything I thought would be delivered. Her writing style is one to look forward to, her storyline is one that kept me entertained and enthralled, and her characters are so full of personality that even their insecurities, flaws and quirks are relatable. For me, even the cameo appearance from member of the "Meltdown" series made it all the better. If you're going to pamper yourself ...more

Roller coaster romance.

Wynne and Sanders story was a roller coaster of a ride. At some points throughout the story I really didn't like Sander and others I loved him. Overall and really enjoyed reading Sanders character. I feel like the author did a really good job with showing us the darker past he had and his growing pains into the man he wanted to become. With that being said I also felt that Wynne had some growing up to do also and it was nice to see that they both kind of did it together. I
