On September 9, 2012, S.C. Stephens announced that she had signed a deal for Thoughtless, Effortless, and Reckless with Gallery Books, a imprint of Simon & Schuster. That meant that the ebooks had to be switched over, the paperbacks re-released, and a delay in the publishing of Reckless until March 5, 2013 (previously scheduled for December 2012).
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.

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.
