When Hayley Stephens proposed a collaboration with me and my band, I thought the only risk was that we wouldn’t connect and our music would suffer because of it. I couldn’t’ve been more wrong.

Our connection was off the charts and unwittingly, Hayley filled a void I’d long since grown accustomed to. There was just one problem: she was involved with Kevin Peyton and I had no

I’m starting off this review telling you something that’s possibly a negative thing, or at least it was for me, and it pains me but it’s the only way my review will make sense. So, the beginning of this book confused me, and when I say beginning, I mean like the first 20%ish of the book. It starts with a prologue that focuses on a tragic incident. Then we jump to present day five years later, and it’s tragic again but different people … and it rolls into more people being introduced and I had to ...more

Two damaged people, both rockstars, have some serious professional chemistry, and personal too. But that damage has to be dealt with before Kade and Hayley can be together in a real way. Will their demons be too big of an obstacle to get past?

These two...damn, so much pain, so many issues. I felt for them, but I loved how they finally grew and got through them. This is one hell of a rockstar story and a fabulous addition to the Cocky Hero Club.

This was my first time reading this author and I enjoyed it so much!! I have a soft spot for rockstar romances, and I love how different this one was! Our lead, Kade, isn't a coked out man-whore, but is actually an emotional down-to-earth guy who genuinely cares about his fans and the woman he falls in love with. I love how he was the more sensitive one out of the two! Especially regarding everything he went though in his last relationship, and even though he obviously had his insecurities, he w ...more

Ryleigh Sloan has managed to do the impossible within the Cocky Hero Club. She managed to write a story that felt uniquely its own and not something derived from the world of other authors. There wasn't unnecessary name dropping of the characters from British Bedmate just so there was a connection that justified Risky Rockstar's place within the Cocky Hero Club. Bridgett, Simon and their family felt completely right within this story and a part of Haley's family without cheapening their friendsh ...more

The Cocky Heroes club has produced some Amazing stories,and I have read a few.But Risky Rockstar by Ryleigh Sloan has been my favourite one so far.
This phenomenal book had me emotionally trapped within its spell,it pulled at my heart strings one minute and then had me laughing out loud the next.
Kade and Hayley are both musicians who collaborate their talents on a song,an album and a tour.
The professional chemistry between them soon spills into their pe

"The realization that I love Hayley wraps around me like a warm blanket and settles deep in my bones. I shouldn't be surprised. I think I've loved her since the first moment we worked together, since she gave me my love of music back."

I really enjoyed this book. Hayley and Kade were absolutely perfect for each other. Both of these characters were dealing with feelings from past relationships that they truly needed to let go of but until they could each find that closer for those circumstances, it was hard for them to move forward.

Both of them being stars in their own right helped make them better suited to one another. They each understood the struggles of stardom. Hayley was always wondering why someone wanted to be with he

One of the things I love about the Cocky Hero World is finding new authors and once again I have found another amazing author to follow. This is the first book I have read by Ms Sloan but it certainly won’t be the last, her writing is strong and the characters easy to relate to.
Risky Rockstar may be part of the world I love but this author has managed to write a story that would be loved even if you no nothing about the world it’s connected too. There is a connection to British Bedmates but only

Ryleigh Sloan has done it again.
Writing another captivating, emotion-filled, amazing read.

Hayley and Kade are so hot. And together they're explosive. I loved them from the beginning.
Both living through difficult situations that are hard to talk about in life, but Ms. Sloan did an amazing job with difficult topics.
We met Hayley in Cliche and I'm so glad to find out more about this beautiful rockstar. Kade has made previous appearances as a side character in her Heartbeat Series, and I love

I really liked this book. I liked that we got an insight into how Keller and Maddie are getting on as I loved their book.
I loved Kade and Hayley and liked the ups and downs of the story. The epilogue was brilliant and I can’t wait to read more from this series as I’m very intrigued by Jeff and Josh and also to see how both couples relationships progress.

OMG!!! OHHH MYYYY GAWDDDD Ryleigh!!! What did I just read?? Risky Rockstar is Kade and Hayley's story, and there aren't enough stars to give this book, that's how much I loved it!! It made me feel it all, I swooned, I loved, I cried...I got angry. There was even an occasion or 2 that I wanted to smack some sense into both Hayley and Kade, I just wanted them to be honest with each other and talk about things!! That's where a misunderstanding comes into play because of a slimy little weasel and it ...more

This is my favourite book yet! Even if I was swearing at the main characters a time or two. 
I had all the feels reading this gem.

Risky Rockstar you get the LP-45 guys, Blair's BF Maddie from Back Beat & Drop Beat, the Cliché couple Kevin & Claire, they all get an appearance.

Kade is to die for. Hayley is his natural match in every way. 
They both have a rocky past, that past is threatening their future, it was a risky move when Hayley began co-labing with LP-45, but all seems good, until it isn't,

Ryleigh has done it again!

Kade and Hayley will live on in your minds for a long time after you read this book. I was not able to put it down or pick another book up after it. Reconnecting with Kevin and Claire and Keller and Maddie was amazing.

Kade was downright sexy and did not disappoint and Hayley, well she turned out to be a wildcat!

I loved everything about this book and am so thrilled I was able to read it! It is a wonderful addition to the Cocky Bastard books.

I love Hayley and Kade. This is a great book with all the feels also some pretty great side characters. And one of my favorite parts we get to see Kevin and Claire from a different point of view. 😍.Read it , read it immediately!

After re-read I stand by my earlier review this book is amazing! Its wells worth the read. Great job Ryleigh 😁

“While you’re theirs, you’ll never be mine.”

You follow your dream...but whose dream is it really, when you can’t play by your own rules?

Don’t slip...if you fall now, then you’re just another forgotten CD gathering dust in a charity shop.

A slave is a slave, even if the chains are pretty. And they aren’t so pretty these days.

Kade Tennick...LP-45 lead singer and oozing sex appeal...ladies, you are in for a treat!

Ryleigh Sloan is a new to me author, and I'll definitely read more of her in the future. The beginning of this story was slow going because I was confused with so much thrown at me too early, but once it hit its stride, I never looked back. I'm one of those girls who believes in soul mates (though I don't have one nor am I looking) so Kade & Hayley screamed soulmates even though it took them a cool minute to come face to face. It's a slow burn situation at its finest, not to mention said slow bu ...more

Oh my hotness. And my poor, swooning, beating heart...

Lay it all out for you, right here, right now.

The best addition to any author focused world, in my humble opinion.

Hayley Stephens is the world's hottest singer, but being under the intense spotlight both on and off stage is taking it's toll not only on her personal life, but on her soul. The one thing keeping her from losing it is the music, and it doesn't hurt that sexy front man Kade is a part of new project. But, she needs to get things t

Get ready to take a ride on the rollercoaster of feels, rocker style!!!!!

Risky Rockstar is a hot and steamy rocker romance that deals with some heartbreaking subjects that have you feeling all the emotions as you live these events through the eyes of the characters, a beautifully written story that will immerse you into the world of the rich and famous and show you that its not all sunshine and rainbows.

Discovering an author like Ryleigh Sloan is the reason why I love reading the Cocky Hero Club books so much. Risky Rockstar is one of the best books I've read this year and has made me a fan of the outstanding writing of Mrs. Sloan. Her character and world-building are superb. The story is unexpected, refreshing and flows seamlessly.

The music and concert descriptions are out of this world, and truly make almost feel like you were there. From the beginning, Ryleigh Sloan makes you feel what her c

This is a wonderful addition to this amazing series and is Kade and Hayley’s journey. These two are both musicians who collaborate, and the chemistry between them is off the charts. Both characters have barriers up from past relationships, which had left them both a tad vulnerable, in order to move on together. When both of their pasts threatening their relationship, will this be the end for them? This is a well written flawless story which is an emotional roller coaster throughout, and is inten ...more

Wow! I wish there was a more eloquent word that comes to mind than wow. Risky Rockstar, with a tie-in to British Bedmate, was a beautifully written story about two rockstars who had a lot of emotional baggage. Hayley and Kade were well-matched, both on and off the stage. But their emotional baggage kept them from truly moving forward. They were fortunate to have good friends to help put things into perspective and finally unpack all that baggage. Ms. Sloan wrote some very power words of heartach ...more

Risky Rockstar is part of the Cocky Hero Club which is inspired by Vi Keeland and Penelope Ward's British Bedmate. You don't have to have read British Bedmate to enjoy this one. I struggled with this one in the beginning. When I started reading, I was confused and disconnected from the characters but it turned out to be a good read. Both Kade and Hayley have tragic things happen to them. Hayley is a popular signer. She is talented, sexy, and sweet. Kade's band is doing a collaboration with her. ...more

Risky Rockstar is one that will have you on the edge of your seat from the very first chapter. Your mind is left playing guessing games and has your anxiety levels on high alert. A story of tragedy and overcoming obstacles. Kade and Hayley had me a little disconnected at the start but that was probably more to do with my head trying to work out the plot before it was all laid out. However at about a quarter of the way through the chemistry and the connection hit hard and had me captivated by eve ...more

I loved this book, the characters were great,the world building was fantastic and the story kept me interested.
Kade Tennick wasn't the normal type Rockstar that trashed hotel rooms etc, but seemed like a really humble guy, who just happened to be gifted with a voice that could charm the knickers of a nun.
Hayley Stephens is a star in her own right has been treated terribly by her ex, and I could have happily given him a swift kick up the backside.

Wow, just wow! This is my first time reading a Ryleigh Sloan story and I am floored! This is an emotional story with possible triggers for people, but it was not written gratuitously, it came from a place of honestly and truth. Life isn’t always sunshine and rainbows there are things that can weigh you down and make life hard.

Hayley and Kade are famous but flawed, their scars run deep. But they also believe in love and want it so badly.

Take this trip with these two characters, it’s a beautiful t

Hayley and Cade what a backstory to their romance.
Want to talk about the intensity , the feels...every single one of them, my heart was being pulled at all different angles.
But this book was so well worth the read and more!!!
I just really loved this book and characters and by the way it was the first book I’ve read from this author and mark my words not the last.

Ryleigh Sloan was awfully FRISKY writing RISKY ROCKSTAR! Kade & Hayley were hot hot hot! Absolutely explosive connection & their story was one for the books.

Be ready for it to pull on your heartstrings, probably rip it into tiny pieces in the process. But fair warning, it’s worth it! She does not disappoint.

This is one of my favorite Rockstar Romance stories of all time.
