Ah…where to start. I started this series a few months ago and just finished the final book on March 5. I woke up at 5:30 a.m. and was happy that my pre-ordered book was delivered, ready and waiting for me.
First off, I cannot listen to the song Ho Hey by the Lumineers without thinking of the book Thoughtless. There is something about it that makes me think of Kellen singing that to Kiera. I don’t want to give a lot away about the books because I don’t want to ruin one minute of these for you. I will say there is cheating in the book so if you can’t stand that in a book, walk away.
Otherwise, just know that this series is freaking awesome. I loved each book equally. Of course, there are many times I want to slap Kiera in the face and tell her to wake the fuck up. Seriously. It’s so obvious to the reader who she wants to be with so just be with him already. It’s like when the creepy music starts to play and you start yelling at the dumb girl with big boobs to not.go.in.to. the. basement. It’s pretty obvious to you she’s gonna die – but she didn’t ask you did she? She’ll just have to figure it out on her own. Thankfully, Kiera figures it out eventually. Kellen, man, how the author describes him – holy freakin hell – yum.
The books kind of leave you hanging but thankfully if you haven’t read them yet – there’s not a lot of suspense and wait time because lucky you you can read the whole series without a 2 month wait for the final book.
Go. Get. This. Series. Right. NOW. Really you won’t regret it.
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 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.
After being caught in the middle of a love triangle which led to a devastating betrayal, Kiera pledged to learn from the mistakes she’d 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 withstand 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?
