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.
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 Kellan Kyle.
Kellan 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.
