Book Description (via Goodreads): 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 being in the spotlight would be.
I didn’t fit into his world. I didn’t fit into his plans. I only wish I’d discovered that before falling in love with him and changing the game plan.
Sometimes changing the game plan changes more than the game. Sometimes it changes your everything.
I received an ARC copy of this novel in exchange for an honest review. I have given Cliché by Ryleigh Sloan four out of five stars ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
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.
I fell in love with the main characters of the story who were, Claire (great name, I wonder why? 😉) and Kevin Peyton. Kevin Peyton is an actor and Claire who works for her fathers company, Addington Air who specialise in flying around high-end clients. They have been best friends for years, but “special” benefits comes with their friendship which we find out right from the first chapter of the book. Their relationship had me hooked from the get go and I really enjoyed exploring into the depths of their friendship and how much they truly loved and cared for one another. However, there is normally a twist in the story and this book had plenty of those to offer, so not everything is as hunky dory as you’d want it to be.
This book definitely tugged on all kinds of my emotions at times I was feeling the romance and the steamy part of the relationship, then I’m feeling sad and annoyed at some of the scenes that play out and I wanted to scream so badly from the heartache I felt for the characters. I found myself relating to some situations Sloan wrote about in this book, especially jealousy. Jealousy is a horrible thing to feel and this author came through showing just how bad this emotion can make you feel at times.
There were one or two grammatical errors and words written round the wrong way, but besides that I thoroughly enjoyed this book and am anxiously awaiting to read more material from her.
I’m shocked that this is Ryleigh Sloan’s first standalone novel and I’m quite upset that this book itself is a standalone novel as I could devour so many more stories about the relationship between Claire and Kevin.
