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?

I know S.C. Stephens was apprehensive about the release of Reckless as it was published without many people reading it first, unlike the previous two books.  Well, needless to say, she did not disappoint me or the rest of her fans.  The same day the e-book released, it hit the #1 spot on Itunes and Barnes & Noble (Amazon had not released it yet). Congratulations SC!

I had an ARC of Reckless in my possession on February 1 and did not finish it until February 26.  During this time, I read three other books just so I could make this book last. It was bittersweet knowing I had waited nine months for Reckless, and now it was over.  When people would ask me my opinion after finishing the book, I told them I had one word to describe RecklessPERFECT!!!!

All the D-bags and their girlfriends, Denny & Abigail, Kiera’s parents and sister Anna, Kellan’s dad and siblings return in Reckless as they all are an integral part of Kellan and Kiera’s life.  I enjoyed reading the interactions between all of them.  They are all like one big happy family.  Yes, there will be turmoil, angst, happy and sad moments, but it’s all part of the journey that made me love this book (and series) even more.

Now, let’s talk Kiera.  After all the bashing she took after people read Thoughtless and Effortless, I was overjoyed to see that she had matured and grown and put Kellan and his career first.  She was confident and not wishy-washy as we experienced in the first two books.  This was a huge accomplishment for her, and I’m so proud of her.

And finally the piece de resistance known as Kellan Kyle.   There will NEVER be another Kellan Kyle (AKA Sex on a Stick), and I didn’t think I could fall in love with him anymore.  And I was so wrong.  There is something about a man who can be so sensitive, sweet, complimentary, and appreciative of his girlfriend/wife.  He never fails to reiterate his love and devotion to Kiera.  And for that, he will remain by number 1 book boyfriend.

Tangling my hands through his hair, I gazed at him until I thought my heart might burst.  He unwaveringly met my eyes, “I love you too, Kiera.  Just you.  You’re my always.”

“I love you. I would do it all over again if I needed to. I’d go back to the beginning for you.”

Thank you Kellan Kyle and S.C. Stephens for the journey and the memories.  Until we meet again for the next re-read.
