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.

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.
Love Romantic Erotica with a twist , thrill, suspense and a great story !
Yes ....kept going on with not much really changing, too slow.
Had to start a different book cause I was bored with this relationship.
It has one , but I can't even get through book 1 ....
Not bad enough to return , and may continue to listen to it in between my other books.
I liked the characters so I want to follow them , but just hard to keep going.
it's the best way to spend a working day, and i'm thankful my job is one where i can listen to books all day long.
While my favorite type of book (right now) is Erotica Romance, this book was recommended to me many times and thought I would take a chance. I'm a fan of long books (ie: Gabaldon, Follett) but really, this book could have been one download shorter. I see the relevance of it, to let us really know these characters but a shorter book would have been okay with me.
There were times I found myself wanting to slap Kiera so hard, talk about making wrong choices---OVER and OVER and OVER. It was truly painful and by the end of the book I was just wishing they'd Romeo and Juliet the thing and kill each other off in a love suicide. ugh! That's the reason for my four stars rather than a good solid five.
Too much UP and DOWN. To the bitter end you were left wondering if they could really stick it out, and I guess we'll see in Effortless, which I will also listen.
This book was thoroughly enjoyed and despite its length, I finished it in two days.
You feel like you are a part of it
Kellan! Need I say more!
All of it!
I think the audio edition matches up pretty well to the print version, especially since the performance was very well done.
Kellen is my favorite character. To know him is to love him.
I liked that Rebekkah Ross seemed to act out the parts rather than just read them. She put emotion into her performance, almost like she was acting out each character's role.
I laughed and cried! The extreme emotional attachment to the characters (especially Kellen) is unavoidable.
I can't wait to relisten to this, as well as listen to the next two books in the series that tell the rest of Kellen and Kiera's story.
