For almost two years now, Kiera’s boyfriend, Denny, has been everything she’s ever wanted: loving, tender and endlessly devoted to her. When they head off to a new city to start their lives together, Denny at his dream job and Kiera at a top-notch university, everything seems perfect. Then an unforeseen obligation forces the happy couple apart.
Feeling lonely, confused, and in need of comfort, Kiera turns to an unexpected source—a local rock star named Kellan Kyle. At first, he’s purely a friend that she can lean on, but as her loneliness grows, so does their relationship. And then one night everything changes… and none of them will ever be the same.
From the #1 New York Times bestselling author S.C. Stephens comes the new adult series everyone is talking about and a love triangle you won’t forget.
After being caught in the middle of a love triangle that led to a devastating betrayal, Kiera pledged to learn from the mistakes she made. She was determined to never again inflict that kind of pain on anyone, especially the soulful, talented man who held her heart. But life offers new challenges for every relationship, and when Kiera’s love is put to the ultimate test, will it survive? Love is easy;trust is hard.
Can love survive when life gets Reckless?
When the band hits it big, Kiera and Kellan must ask themselves: Can their love for each other survive the constant pressures of superstardom? The friendships they’ve formed, the new family they’ve found, and the history they’ve forged will all play a part in helping them navigate the turbulent waters of the band’s exploding popularity. A greedy executive hell-bent on success, a declining pop star looking for an edge, and a media circus that twists lies into truths are just some of the obstacles the lovers will have to overcome if they are going to remain together. Fame comes with a price-but will it cost Kiera and Kellan everything?
A new novel in the Thoughtless series from #1 New York Times bestselling author S. C. Stephens!
Every story has two sides, and in this new book, the epic love story between Kiera and Kellan is shown through his eyes.
All Kellan Kyle needs is his guitar, and some clean sheets of paper. Growing up in a house that was far from a home, he learned a hard lesson: You’re worthless. Now his life is comfortably filled with passionate music, loyal band mates, and fast women… until he meets her.
Kiera makes him ache for more. Makes him feel for the first time that he’s worth more. But there’s one problem— she’s his best friend’s girl.Just when Kellan thought his emotional defenses were rock solid, Kiera’s indecisive heart wreaks havoc on his soul, changing him forever. Losing Kiera is not an option.
The spotlight doesn’t only shine. Sometimes it burns.
Being the bad-boy bassist for the world’s hottest band has earned Griffin Hancock some perks: a big house, a fast car, and most importantly his incredible wife, Anna. The one thing it hasn’t brought him is the spotlight. Anna tells him to be patient, that his talent will win out. But Griffin is through waiting for permission to shine.
Without warning, Griffin makes a shocking decision and takes the gamble of a lifetime. Suddenly he’s caught up in a new level of lights, cameras, and chaos. One that pushes his relationship with Anna to its limits. Anna has always found his unpredictable behavior sexy, but lately he’s seen an ache in her eyes–and it has his soul in knots. Just as the recognition Griffin seeks is finally within reach, the thing he loves most in life could be slipping through his fingers…
Potentially my favorite NA book ever. I could not have loved this book more. It was gut-wrenching, emotional, sad, romantic, hopeful and so damn real.
I’m not going to lie, Keira is different than most of the female characters I read about and probably not as likeable as most. She’s confused and insecure and needy and selfish. But I think if you can be non-judgemental and really look at how she got in the position she’s in, I think her behavior is at the very least understandable and at the very best what almost any woman would do in the face of Kellen Kyle.
Kellen Kyle is the be all, end all, most beautifully damaged man ever written. He is flawed perfection. He will ruin you for all other men.
The love triangle is harsh and painful and sad as hell but believable and oh so addictive. Really, there are no good guys and no bad guys and no villains, just three people in a no win situation. This book is not a romanticized love story full of heart warming gestures and mushy live scenes (although there are some amazing ones). This book is mistakes and painful fights full of love and passion and anger and betrayal.
My heart was crushed by this book, broken into a million little pieces and then put back together piece by painful piece.
It was perfection….I can’t wait to read the next three books
