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.

I was having withdraws after reading the Fifty Shades Trilogy and Bared to You books and this book was suggested...it is so ridiculously long winded. The "scenes" are nothing like Bared to you or Fifty Shades and the Keira is whiney and annoying. That being said I am anxious to know what happens after the 6 hours Ive already invested thinking it would get better so I am reluctantly listening to the rest of it.
I dont know if all of her books are so PG rated...if any of her books mimic Fifty or Bared to you then I would but another book like this one is not for me.
Yes the narrator was a woman and she should of stopped trying to do the Australian male accent...it just wasn't needed.
I am listening at work and have nothing else to listen to while I work but I would take 20 hours on vacation lets say and listen to this book.
Keep looking if you are craving another Fifty or Bared to you rush.
Very predictable, self absorbed Kiera plays 2 guys so obviously. This is definitely a better read for a young reader.
I could not stop listening to this book. I reluctantly turned it off at 2:30am and then after a quick sleep I picked up where I left off at 6:30am. I felt compelled to find out what was going to happen next - would Denny find out and would she really go back and forth between Kellan and Denny or just pick one?! have to say I became really frustrated with the character of Kiera. Oh man was she indecisive! Sometimes I really wanted her to grow up and just take some action. But I found the story quite heartrenching at times which I always love in a love story.
Rebekka Ross did a great job. She even did a fairly credible job of the Australian accent for the character of Denny (I am Australian).
I gave this audiobook an overall 5 stars due to the addictive factor.
Can't wait to start listening to the next book which I just happily spent a credit on.
Smoking (HOT) Romantic Journey
This was such a fun read (listen). I loved Kiera, and would love to have a crazy, fun loving sister like Anna. I could identify with the characters, and the story is so well written, all of the characters were well developed, making them seem more like personal friends. I don't like spoilers, so I will leave it like that....but WOW! I have finished all 3 books and already listened to the first one a second time...Will definitely listen to it more in the future as well!
I loved Rebekkah's ability to make me feel like she was Kiera, yet her accent for Denny and low, sultry voice for Kellan had me hook, line and sinker. She can really make the characters come alive!
KELLAN...definitely....he is just too smoking hot and full of sexy surprises not to pick him! although Griffin and Anna would be a hoot to go with!
This is a MUST read story series!
Yes, This story stirs up the emotions of the reader and makes you feel the love, pain and struggle of the main characters Keira, Kellan, and Denny.
The journey of Keira and Kellan
It made me feel all the emotions of the characters laughed, cried and was seriously frustrated with some decisions.
I've been an avid reader since I was a child. I love different types of writing styles and I am never afraid to try new authors.
I bought this book with trepidation because of the reviews but I was surprised by how much I enjoyed the book. Yes Kiera was annoying in her lack of decision making and at times I wanted to throttle her for her immaturity. And towards the end the things Kellan and Kiera did, I kept waiting for Denny to find out and was surprised he didn't wake up to find the truth. I was very happy how Kellan finally grew a pair and didn't allow himself to be second best in the end and made Kiera prove herself. I would have lost respect for her if he had laid down and let her walk all over her. I also have to say I was surprised by how sensitive and emotion Kellan was with Kiera. He laid his heart out for Kiera and I found that very admirable. I definitely enjoyed this book even though I wanted to knock some sense into Kiera often.
This really is a difficult review.
I cannot remember having read a book in a long time which leaves me like this. i nearly hated kiera, but nevertheless couldn t put it down.
I just wanted to know,if and when her ugly game was revealed.
But the reader has to suffer a lot of guilt and weakness and guilt and weakness and..until finally resolve. I couldn t believe, how the story went on and on, so i kept on reading.
I still cannot understand, why the two guys liked her so much.
and now that its over - i have to read the 2nd book. i think i must be insane.
Yes. The story was very good and the narrator was great.
The narrator did a fantastic job with Denny's Australian accent. I am not usually a fan of people doing accents. They often sound fake and cartoonish. The narrator's accent was very subtle and believable.
Over and Over again, I loved this love story with all it's twist and turns. It will take a while for the story line to pick up, but alot of the buildup is needed to truly understand the main charachters.
I loved the back door room scene, Because your mine! The story completely switced gears.
Kellan singing his heart out in the song about their realtionship.
The rain scene and everyhting after that, I was completely heart broken for everyone.
This is such a real story line, to me this was one of those story that could truly happen in real life not something that is truly fanasy made. The narrator does such a good job with Denny's accent. BTW Denny is such a sweetheart.
The dynamic between each of the characters. They each had their positives and negatives and you learn their flaws and complimentary characteristics as well. I kept wanting more and more of each character.
The rain scene between Kellan and Kiera was very memorable,
I always like Kellan's "mornin'" but my favorite scene was when the sleeze in the bar was harrassing Kiera and the entire band came to her defense. Kellan was injured because he didn't want anyone else touching her muchless hurting her.
Falling in love may be unpredictable, but how you handle it makes all the difference. Being Thoughtless is not intentional, but sometimes and end to a means.
This book kept me on edge. I didn't want to see any of the character to be hurt, but I wanted it to end the way I wanted. This is a great series.
